First things first, my blog will be quiet this week….but for good reason (more on that later this week or so). I am sharing one photo from a newborn shoot this past weekend, just because a post is always better with a photo (and because Chloe and Lilah are so darn adorable) ;)
In the meantime, I just wanted to give a quick update on my current booking schedule for 2013. As of now, here is what the remainder of 2013 is looking like for Lot116.
JUNE - A couple of spots open
JULY – A few spots open
AUGUST – A few spots open
SEPTEMBER – A couple of spots open
OCTOBER – COMPLETELY BOOKED
NOVEMBER - COMPLETELY BOOKED
For those wanting “holiday photos”, I highly suggest grabbing a September spot a.s.a.p. I do have clients that shoot in September (and some even in August) for holiday photos, and get them out of the way (which is also great so that it’s not as rushed/stressful along with the holidays).
For June, July, August, I would especially LOVE to do some more in home sessions. NO, you do NOT need to have a “model home”. In home sessions are about YOUR family, YOUR love, YOUR kids being kids, YOUR home, YOUR life. I also have some other ideas that i’ve been wanting to try at some in home sessions, so email me if you want to talk more about it :) I would love to meet your family!
Email me at julie@Lot116.com a.s.a.p to book for 2013 (or even 2014….those bookings have already started as well). Once i’m booked, i’m booked :) I look forward to meeting you (as well as seeing many of you again!)! xoxo – Julie

I knew this family would be awesome, even before I met them. How did I know? Well, mom’s name is Julie (like me!) and their daughter’s name is Paige (like my daughter!)! ;) Haha… Julie and I joked about how funny it would be if our husband’s both had the same name… but luckily they don’t (although they both wear glasses and are asian of some sort…..so that alone gets some points, right? haha). When they first mentioned (in email) that Paige was 2.5 year old, I honestly thought I was in for it. After all…with 2 year olds… you just never know ;) But Paige, ohhhh sweet Paige…. she was one of the easiest, sweetest and most adorable 2 year olds I have ever met.

The trees are getting leaves again, the flowers are blooming, the weather is getting nicer…and it was a perfect weekend for mini sessions! My first family was super sweet, and their little boy, Grant, was adorable! He was asleep as they pulled up, but woke up, and was all smiles within minutes. The weather was hot enough (80+) for us to get some shots of Grant without his shirt on, so I suggested it towards the end of the session. Coming from a mother of an (just turned) 8 year old who is a skinny little thing now, I always encourage parents to get some shots to capture the chubbiness…. because trust me, one day it will be gone… and you will miss it! :)

I feel like a broken record, but I honestly meet the most wonderful families! This awesome family was no exception. Although they brought the San Francisco weather down with them (haha), and it was cold and windy (not to mention the sun was playing hide and seek every 5-10 seconds…which is always fun when shooting manual…not! ;) haha), we had so much fun and laughed a LOT! Noah is 7, and Makena is 3…and both are SO sweet and adorable! They are totally easy going kids that had a blast running around, posing for me, being silly, etc. Makena had the serious model pose DOWN! She was SO funny! She would be smiling and giggling one second, and I would say, “Ok, model pose!”…and she would turn totally serious and work the camera like nobody’s business! Hahahaha. Their mom emailed me the day after their shoot and said “Thanks again Julie! We had a great time and to prove it, Makena named a unicorn she won here at Legoland, “Julie”!”.
How cute is that? :)
They wanted to shoot at “the rim wall”, so we ended there, but started at one of my favorite fields (which is nice and green right now) :)
