Can you see them?

Here it is, my first blog post on my new site! I've been wanting to start this section for months, well years actually... Well before the birth of this latest version of I'm not sure why this task has never made it to the top of my priority list but I'm not going to wonder too much; I may never get to posting to photos! 

So why now? I think this answer is as simple as this: 2014. Yes, we just got home from our Christmas holiday a few days ago and it's now resolutions time. I haven't even unpacked yet! That's next on the list, well after a quick Trader Joe's run and getting the kids from school of course!

Why this shoot? It's not the most recent, certainly not the first one! It's the one I picked out of my hat! It was done in December for my good friends Lana and Dave and their lovely kids. I had decided to offer mini-shoot for the Holidays; a little 30 min shoot ideal to get a family photo for the Christmas cards. This was my first one! Dave being quite the hunter, they decided to go camouflage! Anything other than coordinated white t-shirts and jeans makes me happy ;-) So here are a few of my favorites of this fun quick little photo shoot. If you are interested in a mini-shoot, let me know and I will contact you the next time I offer them.

Little Jaelene

This has been my test post for over a year! It has made it onto the last 3 versions (I know...) of my website at different times but it never worked to my satisfaction. So here it is again! I will soon post a new one of little Jaelene who is growing up!

This is the original text:

For a first, I thought it only appropriate to pick little Jaelene's first birthday photoshoot! I had the pleasure to spend the afternoon with Erica and her lovely family. Jaelene, her sweet little girl, had just turned one and grandma was visiting from out of town. The pictures were taken in beautiful Vista CA. Jaelene wore a traditional Korean dress that had the most amazing colors and fabrics, a treat for a "bright-color" fan like me :) Delightful little girl and family, beautiful setting, I just couldn't stop hitting that shutter-release and ended up with so many photos... Makes for a lot of editing but times flies when you're having fun, right?!
