It's my B-day!



Can you believe I'm only an hour or so into my b-day and I already managed to shed a few tears of hapiness!

Art gave me a beautiful birthday card with the most beautiful words he has ever told me. It's hard to believe that even though we have been together for over 10 years we continue to love each other intensely. Like he said, "with every birthday we have one more year of beautiful memories collected, fun times shared and we have one more year of forever."

Major points to him! He has really made this my "birthday week." On Monday he gave me the Disney movie I told you guys about, On Tuesday I got a nice Halloween/Frankenstein photo frame (I love Halloween!), Wednesday I got some cute tube socks I've been wanting to buy but I kept complaining that they were too expensive, and Thursday I got a huge bouquet of sunflowers, my favorite chocolates, my favorite snack, my favorite magazine and a cute little bear that reminds me of a childhood bear I had... Yup, he definitely earned some major points :P They were all small things that make me happy (yup, tube socks make me happy :P), and he put a lot of thought into it, that's what means a lot to this girl.

A huge thanks to all my clients and photog friends who have sent happy birthday e-mails this week! You guys bring a huge smile to my face -------> see :)

I am seriously a happy woman! God has blessed me immensely. I could not ask for more. He has blessed me with an amazing husband, a loving family and wonderful friends. Life is good!

I am off to get some sleep because I have a long birthday weekend! I will spend today with my family and friends and tomorrow we are off to Las Vegas!

I'll be back Monday!

Lana & Tony ~ Engaged!

Lana and Tony chose Hollywood for their engagement session. We had a lot of fun walking, talking, going into stores and of course photographing Lana & Tony. I love engagement sessions because we cab get to know our clients better and we can really connect. For instance, Lana and I found out that we share the same iPhone dilemma. What is it, you may ask...well, Art has a serious relationship with his iPhone and so does Tony with his own iPhone...men and their toys! Not only that, but we also bonded over getting lost thanks to navigational systems :P Tony and Art also talked business...Tony might have actually helped me convince Art of something I have been bugging him about for a while ;)

Lana & Tony: Thank you for a great time! You guys seriously rock! We can't wait for your wedding which we know is going to be amazzzzzzzing! We're lucky to have been chosen by you to photograph your wedding.

Here are just a few of our faves:





Looks to me like Tony was trying to distract Lana from her favorite store :P

Party time!

I will be celebrating my birthday this WHOLE week :) Friday is THE day, though!

Art started the week off with a birthday present that only he (or my Dad) would think of giving me...a Disney movie! I have a serious collection of Disney movies. Should "serious" and "Disney movies" even be in the same sentence?

I can't wait until Friday! Nothing beats having my family and close friends under the same roof! As a bonus I will also have some dessert there! Or so I hope :)

Now I am off to edit!

Oh by the way, I am gearing up to do some serious blogging so stay tuned.

How 'bout them Cowboys?

I bet you thought I was talking about these Cowboys.



I am actually talking about these Cowboys I photographed today :)






Art is very happy that his team won today. I have a feeling I'll be hearing about them Cowboys every time they win :/ I rather talk basketball, but hey, I have to be a good wife and listen as he talks football to me, even though I don't understand a thing :P

I'm off to get some rest that is much needed!

Claire & Doug ~ Married!

Palos Verdes, Califoria

Art and I had the honor of photographing Claire and Doug's wedding a couple of weeks ago. They are the sweetest!

Their ceremony took place at the beach, just a few feet from the water. It was beautiful. It was really personal and touching. Overall, it was an awesome wedding full of awesome people!

Doug & Claire: Thank you so much for being so king and inviting. I love it when I get a couple that remind us why we love doing this. You guys were definitely one of those couples! I feel blessed to have met you. You guys rock!

Here are some of my fave:





















I took this shot


Art took this one




Some of the most awesome bridesmaids out there!

What have I done?!

Soooooo, yesterday in one of my wacky moments I thought it would be cool to dye my hair blonde-ish...I was wrong! When I was in my teenage years, I must have changed hair color like I changed socks! Now, I try and stick to what looks good on me...that is until yesterday! When I showed Art what I had done to myself all he did was smile, but I know what he was thinking :P

So, after giving it much thought I have decided that blonde is not for me (anymore) and I will go back to my light brown hair color before this weekend's wedding!

Do you want to see what I look like right now?

Ooooooookay...here it goes...

Do not laugh!







Not good!
