September 28, 2012

I've been absent from my blogsite for a little while--  I've been working tirelessly on lots of new things coming up- a new logo, a new website, a new blog, an amazing new product line, and a full-blown studio remodel.  I hope to have the new site and blog live within a week or so.  The studio should be done within the next two months. Good things coming!

Fall has always been our busiest time of year, and this one is no different.  Along with the aforementioned happenings, I've got a full calendar of clients.  On a more personal side, we've been busy with soccer, gymnastics, piano, cub scouts, church, and a 2 1/2 year old who is suddenly the worst sleeper ever.  Life is in full swing.

It would be easy to get so caught up in the intricacies of a packed calendar to forget to stop and enjoy it all.  I've been reminded lately in some very poignant ways to slow down, hug more, talk less, and enjoy the chaos that is life, because it can all change very quickly. 

I came across this picture recently-- it's one of my favorites of my children.  They're older now, but I can still hear these laughs, and that, in the midst of fall craziness, does my heart much good.

Grow old along with me
The best is yet to be
When our time has come
We will be as one
God bless our love, God bless our love

Grow old along with me
Two branches of one tree
Face the setting sun
When the day is done
God bless our love, God bless our love

Grow old along with me
Whatever fate decrees
We will see it through
For our love is true
God bless our love, God bless our love

-John Lennon

Mark and Lara were married a few weeks ago in a small backyard ceremony in Newbury Park. The evening was full of beautiful light, family, love, laughter, bare feet and a donkey (which was on their wedding wish list, and came as a surprise to us all). I think it's a sign of a wonderful and happy future together.

Mark and Lara, you're both wonderful. Someday, I want to ride the river with you. xo

What simple elegance! I love these. The bride absolutely glows and I love the natural simplicity of their day & the photos you captured. Her succulent bouquet is TO DIE FOR!

I'm off to LA to shoot a wedding today and don't have much time, but I wanted to post my favorite image from last month's session with Cree and Courtney's family.

I'm not sure there's any image that touches me more than a mother with her child or children.  Courtney, you're both gorgeous.  xo
