Happy 3rd & 30th!

Today is my little sister’s birthday, and tomorrow is my son’s. For a minute there I thought they might end up having the same birthday. Anywho, I can’t believe how old they are both getting! Especially since I’m not getting old at all. Strange. Hey, wait a minute! Oh well, this photo was taken on a recent outing to the zoo. They are looking up in awe at the strange beauty of the toucan- or maybe they’re amused by the potty-mouthed mynah bird. (Disclaimer: Blame the mynah bird for any bad words you hear my son repeating. Thank you!)


Tere, Cassie, Daniel, & Alex

It might be hard to believe we were in the middle of winter when these photos were taken, but it’s true! It was a gorgeous day, and I got to photograph an equally gorgeous family. These are few of my favorites from the fun afternoon I spent with Tere and her kids.

Asilomar Beach Session

The Schwartz & Wheeler Families

On a breezy, but beautiful morning in Pacific Grove, Cindy brought her husband Andrew and daughter Evelyn to join her brother Jason, his wife Julie, and their son Jaden for a little photo session together. The day was bitter-sweet for everyone as Jason and his family were days away from moving out-of-state. Hopefully the photos will comprise for them some lovely memories of being together, playing in the sun and splashing in the sea.

Esthetician’s  Cozy Cottage in Carmel Valley

I recently photographed Shelly Thelen’s cottage in Carmel Valley. She lives with her family on a sunny, oak-filled property. Behind her lovely home she has outfitted this comfortable cottage for her work as an esthetician. To reach her you can send an email to shellythelen@gmail.com, visit her website at www.rejuvinateskintherapy.com or call her at 831-601-9593. She offers a wide assortment of beauty treatments at affordable prices, and jewelry you can browse between treatments. Did I mention how nice Shelly is? The morning we photographed her cottage she made a cup of tea for me and I felt like I was hanging out with an old friend.
