Seven Months

Remember this picture?
 
Sweet Sophia just nine days new here. 
 
 
Today I met up with her, now seven months older, and as cute as ever.



 
Kisses.


 
The sun was so amazing today.  Jan 31st and almost 70 degrees.  California Winter.  Got to love it. 












 
Happy Girl!

Heart Fun

I wanted to take pictures of the kids that included hearts.  I got 15 mintues before they insisted we head over the park. 
 


 
 

We don't have soda in our house.  I bought strawberry soda for this shoot and they were just a tad excited about it. 
 













 
 
Love.

Photography Retreat

I had the privilege of attending a Photography Retreat on Saturday in Sacramento.  I was so looking forward to it and it ended up being better than I could have expected.  We met at the beautiful Vizcaya in Sacramento.  We enjoyed the whole day together.  We shared, sang, had quiet time, dined, prayed, and encouraged one another.  During the golden hour of the day we did a "Trash the Dress" session with a gorgeous glowing model who is expecting her second baby in August. She truly glowed.


 
I was able to sit by one of my fave photographer friends during the retreat.

 
All of us. (Minus one who couldn't make it). So fun to be with women who are so encouraging and have a passion for Photography.


I love this shot!  What we photographers do to get the shot. Yes, sometimes it does mean getting in the bushes. 


 
Our beautiful model, Jada.







Thankful for Deanna who made this retreat possible and for Jada who made our pictures so gorgeous.



Time to get the dress dirty.







 
 
Too much fun.  Grateful for this day and what I took away from it.
