I wanted to share an e-mail I received from my friend's mother... His name is Julian and I took some pictures of him a while back, CLICK HERE... We have stayed in touched throughout...I really do love this little guy...
His mother sent me an email and it just made my night... Thanks Julian for making my night and making me smile from ear to ear all over again...
It's Erin and Julian. I just wanted to share this with you. I was on your site and listening to your video you made with the ladies at the park and he heard your voice and just lit up. He was saying "Gina, on the computer?" I went to your video with Derrick and Sara so he could hear your voice again and you laughed at one point and he started cracking up. He made me replay it like 3 times. He kept waiting for the part in the video when you laughed and he'd say, "Gina's going to laugh now," all giggles.
I thought it was so cute that I wanted to share it with you. Hope all is well with you and your family.

I think these moms got it "down".. piece of cake....;)

I am so lucky to be in a industry where I have the opportunities to meet and network with other photographers in the area... It is so nice to share ideas, talk about managing our time and to hear ideas on what works, what doesn't work and how we can make room for improvements. I feel so lucky that I have made wonderful new friends in the process...
I had the opportunity to second shoot with the talented Julie, from Julie Weaver Photography....it is awesome to be asked by other photographers to come and help them out... see, that is another great thing about our industry...( we love to help each other out).. Seeing other photographers work an event or session is very humbiling and inspiring all at the same time.... So thanks Julie for asking, and it was so much fun hanging out with you...
Lisa and Tommy had an all day affair..(wedding ceremony, tea ceremony and the big reception) so much fun...I was on detail patrol and happy to do so.. Love the details...here are a few from their day...
gotta love these Christian Louboutin shoes.. these shoes deserve a post all on it's own..

I love it when couples let me have my way with them.. in a nice clean way that is.. Ha! We had so much fun on our Part II, take 1 day after session... Derek and Sara had so much fun the first time around, they were up for part II and doing it all over a again.... Who am I to refuse this kind of couple.. Here are just a few from our session.. I will save the rest for their enjoyment first.. :)

Rachelle, a local mom here in town asked me a while ago to come out to her moms group and give them pointers on how to take better pictures of their kids... I was extremely honored, but excited and nervous all at the same time... This is really stepping out of my comfort level... ME!!!!.... talking in front of a group. I am usually the one in the back row hoping I do not get called on by the teacher.... So as you can see, a little nervous.
If you are in the area, I would love for you to come, even if it's just for moral support and to hold my hand. I think I will need it..
We will be at Prospect Park this Tuesday on Cajon St. in Redlands right around 6ish... I would love to meet you. I sure don't want to be all by lonesome in a beautiful green park with my camera in hand ready to shoot..Uummm... squirrel's :)

While we were on our vacation. I wanted to take Madeleine out on a quick photo shoot right before she headed on to the big K grade this year.... She was all for it with a little bribery of ice cream... Okay, if that's what it takes.. deal!!! We headed out onto our campsite playground and then up in the hill, but once she saw Bambi, she was out of there... ;)
Here are just a few from our session...Enjoy...
after Madeleine saw these cute little Bambi's, she was done.. ;)
back in the car, and a self portrait...
