It's PJ's 5th birthday! I still can't believe it. I really have a FIVE year old??? I'm taking the day off to spend with my favorite girl, but here is one of the photos that I took for her birthday invites. Can you guess what kind of party she asked for this year? ;) ..........

I know I usually don't post on weekends, but I couldn't resist posting just one photo from a little shoot with PJ (for her b-day and early Easter pics) yesterday. Elmira PJ was in heaven ;) .......

First let me say THANK YOU to everyone who took the time to snap photos and submit them to me. After going through the entries over and over and over again, I decided that the winner of the contest is..........
STACY from BOULDER, COLORADO! How amazing is this??............
Stacy also happens to be a photographer in Colorado, so i'm sure we'll have a blast together! I'm also SUPER excited to be traveling for a shoot (woo hoo! Looks like I can cross that off of my "Goals for 2010" list!) :) Now we just need to figure out scheduling and get things going :) I'll be emailing you soon Stacy! :)
Thanks again to all who entered!!

Back in January I posted a few teaser photos from my sister's annual Chinese New Year card shoot. I didn't want to ruin the surprise of her cards, so I waited to post until all of the cards were sent out to family, friends and clients. Now that the coast is clear (ok, well it was clear last month....but things around these parts have been a little crazy), here are some other photos from the shoot. I loved everything about this shoot.
......and just a little bit of the complete and utterly phenomenal cards my sister sent out this year......
To see more photos of her cards, check her EITAK Facebook fan page (and JOIN! Let's see how many fans we can help her get!) :)
Also, if you're wondering where her rockin' dress is from, it's from one of her amazing clients (you can see what she did for them on her Eitak Facebook page as well) - Be Beauty Boutique/Salon here in San Diego. They told her she NEEDED it and insisted that she take it :)

When Megan contacted me back in September to book a shoot, I was flattered (like I always am with each and every email I receive). But I was even more flattered to find out that not only is she a photographer herself......but wanted to come down from Sacramento for a shoot with me :) We've kept in touch through emails and Facebook, so when I finally met them last week, I felt like I knew them already. On top of being ridiculously adorable, they were dressed to perfection!
Check out Abby's supermodel pose here ;)
This one was hilarious because as mom and dad were smooching, Jacob suddenly grabbed Abby to try and kiss her....and the look on her face was like "GROSS! ARE YOU CRAZY!? YOU'RE MY BROTHER!!!!!" :) It's ok, he gave up on her and right after this shot, he ran full speed to ME and planted one on me ;) Such the ladies man ;)
