When someone gives you lemons... {Redlands Photographer}

You definitely should make FRESH lemonade... Thank you Memes.. :)

As I see how much snow the East Coast is getting... and I do love snow.. I'm really glad I live in California right now... where It is 70-75 degrees here..
It makes it really nice that you can make fresh lemonade, sit on the porch and enjoy..

Have a lovely weekend friends... :)

A really lovely trio... {Redlands Photographer}

How I love this family, and I have only spent one afternoon with them. You know when you get that vibe where it just clicks?.. Well, it clicked.. I felt like I can totally hang out with this family on any other occasion now.. :) .. and thats a great feeling when I have clients like these.. ;)

and then I get this email a day after our session, not having seen one picture that I'd had taken yet...Wow!
I was moved... :)
See, we both felt that vibe... :)

Thank you Alx.. :)

Good morning!! I just wanted to take the time to thank u from the bottom of my heart yesterday was a very special day for us I have been waiting 7 years to be able to take family pictures!! I know a lot of your customers probably love the experience of taking family pictures & thank you but I have to say that the couples that go through what ray & I went through to have Kahrissa see it beyond just taking pictures it's an experience that just not anyone can capture I feel so blessed to have found you because I knew from not only your profolio but by your bio- & your blog the way you speak/write about your kids is what touched my heart, we come from a family that strongly believes in feeling vibes with people or should i say have that gift to be able to feel when people are really good people & yesterday when we met u the minute I seen you I felt that warmth in my heart right away & when kahrissa seen you that was the icing on my cake!! My husband doesn't say much so when he does it's BIG!! & he even said he felt like he knew u forever!! I can't thank you enough I wish I was rich so I can pay you double but even than money couldn't pay you enough for the amazing talent/spirt you have to be able to make someone feel the way you do I wish you much success & I pray that the GOOD LORD gives you good health & strength to be able to do this for as long as you can, your family is very lucky/blessed to have you as their mother & wife! Thank you once again, Take care Have a great new years!! Can't wait to see our pictures!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Happy New Year!

I know, I know.. we are at day 10 already... See how fast we are going so far.. Yikes... and last year just kinda flew by as well...

I am so grateful for the year I had and counting my blessings every single moment that I have. I get to do what I love to do with the support of my family and the support of all of you. I feel so blessed to be able to photograph beautiful people, share these images with all of you, make new friends along the way and still be present at home with my family... I can't ask much more than that... :)

So, Peace out 2010 and welcome 2011. I'm excited for this great journey professionally and personally!
and hope you all too have an awesome 2011.

*The end of 2010 just kinda flew by, and I never had the chance to blog some of my favorite events, favorite sessions and favorite happenings along the way... so I need to play catch up for a bit.. :)

These are some images of my friends and family that came to model and help us out for us for out for our Sept. GTFO workshop. We had beautiful families, great friends and awesome family support. We are so appreciative to every single one of you who helped us out. :) Muah!

Peggy, Cathy and Felicia. You girls rock!
