Rock 'n Roll is Here to Stay

T's 2nd birthday party is officially the most fun birthday party I have EVER been to. He LOVES LOVES LOVES music so his parents pulled out all the stops and had a full on concert where he got to play along with the big guys. I was super honored to be "the photographer", since T is one kiddo dear to me. I think he'll be ready for his solo tour by the time we celebrate his 5th birthday!

Could be his album cover. :)

His "guitar hero" going at it on stage...

...and totally taking off the stage as well.

Oh a camping we will go...

One of the highlights of my year was a brief "camping" trip in San Clemente with some of my dearest g-frys. We spent the day celebrating NaO and Lil by grabbing lunch in Carlsbad, pitching a tent, a ultimate frisbee showdown and bbq up a storm. Being in the sun, surrounded by sisters who I am exceeding grateful for was inspiration enough for me.

It's been blazing hot in SD lately...the kind of hot that makes the sidewalk shimmer. This is a different kind of shine but actually its one of my favorite photos from all of 2008 so far!

More on Maui when I get back but for now, I had to post this photo of J.J. One of my favorites of 2008, so far. :)

Take me Away

My sister took this yesterday in Maui. I will be joining her and the rest of our family Saturday morning and will be out of town until Thursday night. I can't wait!

And of course if anyone wants to do a portrait session while I'm in Maui, just give me a call. :P

Seriously, I just can't wait to see Hawaii for myself! Talk to you when I get back!

Watch me Move

We were at La Jolla shores to take a nice portrait to send to Grandma, but Hase got a little carried away.

Whitney//Senior Portraits//Oceanside

Here's part two of my adventures in Oceanside. The plan was to hang out at the Oceanside Muesum of Art but they don't allow photographs inside. Instead, we wandered down streets and alleys (as Whitney and I often do when we are together). We found so many cool places and fun colors and there was no one better to have with me for the afternoon (except of course, Alison :]).

I'm super proud of Whitney...and thankful for how God has grown our friendship over the years and during some very fundamental and tumultuous times in our lives. I remember when she was just a senior in high school. Watch out world - here comes my little sister and she is just TOO fabulous for you all.

A nice portrait for mom that says it all: "I'm an adult now!"

I love the expression on her face here.

Another nice and "normal" portrait...

Now for the fun stuff. We put on the music and just rocked out!

Alison::Senior Portraits:{:Oceanside}

I'm so proud of Alison...no not, because she's a fabulous model (though, that is true...) but because she's graduating from UC Irvine next week! Alison was the first freshmen that told me she was going to stick around AACF back in the day of 2004 and its been a huge encouragement to see how she's grown in her love for the Lord. We celebrated by walking around Oceanside and catching up. Al - next time, dinner and red mango, for sure!
