Cristian's last Pre School Hoora!

Say it aint so...Thursday already?? The weeks are FLYING by lately, I can't help but ask myself where they are going? I woke up this morning and did my usual routine: Wake up, start a pot of coffee, feed the dogs, make some PB toast, open my computer and stare at my to do list for a few groggy moments. After I finally got some coffee in me, it dawned on me that today is THURSDAY; and I have a blog I promised to be updated each Thursday! So here I am!! week one on my weekly posts. I hope everyone had a great weekend, and a FANTASTIC week. I definitely am. And the weekend was pretty rad, too! I had the pleasure of tagging along at a wedding with an awesome photographer that I have blog stalked and looked up to or some time now. Miss Ryel J. I had a blast hanging out with her on Saturday! Then Sunday was all about hangin' out with my Tree. My week has been pretty great too. Starting out with hanging out with my favorite 5 year old little man in the world. My sweet, hilarious, adorable, silly little nephew, Cristian. If you know me, then I'm sure you have heard me reference my nephew in every day conversation like a million times. I am one proud Auntie. My nieces and nephew are the loves of my life. (right along side Brent, my dogs and my sisters!!) About once a month my sister, Diana calls me up and asks me to watch Cristian for her. I know she thinks it's a burden to ask me to watch him more often then that...but little does she know, I cherish the one on one time I get to spend with him. This week Diana asked me to take him to his last Pre School party  before he heads off to the big K!! (kindergarten) I have taken him to a few other events with his pre school and always love watching him interact with his buddies. So this time I brought the camera along to document his last day in Pre School!! Here are a few shots I got of the day. (Almost all shots are of him and his "best buddy" Zachary. (Cristian LOVES his buddy, Zachary!) )
I know I'm biased, but I think Cristian is the cutest little dude around!! :D
Meet Zachary, Cristian's "best buddy",  Cristian talks about Zachary ALL the time! It's pretty adorable!
I hope you all have a  fabulous weekend full of fun, relaxation and lots of laughs...all rolled up into one stellar weekend! :D

Randi & Geoff Engaged

OK, ok, ok. I know what you are thinking...Something along the lines of "what happened to me? did I fall off a cliff?" I have been terrible with my sweet little blog. Is all it ever does is love me, and I have neglected it so. BUT, I have made a deal with my blog. I will post once a week!! Let it be heard...Every Thursday will be blog day. EVEN if I just blog about how horrible my dogs behaved on our walk I will document it and blog it for y'all to see!
Alright, so now that that's out of the way. Lets get right to the good stuff. Last weekend Brent and I had the pleasure of photographing an old friend of mine from way back in my YMCA days. Yup, that's right. I worked for the good Old Y for about two years with Miss Randi. During those years Randi became a very dear friend to me. We shared LOTS of laughs and good memories with the munchkins at the Y....But secretly my favorite thing about the Y was that I met Miss Randi! Randi is funny. Sweet. witty. patient and kind. After our years at the Y Randi went on to become a fantastic teacher and and then to meet the man of her dreams, Geoff. I can still remember when Randi met Geoff and her telling me all about how "cute he is", like it was yesterday. And let me tell you, he is the PERFECT match for my sweet friend. About 5 years later Randi and Geoff bought a home together (BRAVO!) and Geoff proposed....and now these two lovebirds are getting hitched. I am so honored to have been able to capture their love. These two were so much fun to shoot. We had a fantastic day full of LOTS of laughs and silly moments. But my absolute favorite part of the day was being a witness to Randi and Geoff's love for each other. I hope you guys enjoy looking over these photos as much as I enjoyed taking them. Just as a warning, its a long one. I had a hard time picking my favorites. So sit back, grab a snack and take a look at our day in Orange County. 

Randi and Geoff, thank you so much for such a fun afternoon. We had so much fun running all over Orange circle with you guys. Congratulations, we are SO happy for you two.
