kickin it with kamee

Last weekend I had the amazing opportunity to attend a kamee june workshop. You see kamee is someone that I admire and look to as a mentor. I fell in love with her blog and her writing and her passion. So when she was offering a workshop not too far from home I had to find a way to get there.:) And was I ever happy that I did!

You know when you have such high expectations of a person and then you meet that person and are disappointed...well that was NOT the case. She was even more fabulous in person!! Such a "real" individual and so in love with her life. Her light was contagious and warmed the heart. I left feeling inspired and refueled. I met some new wonderful friends and had a rockin shoot with some gorgeous models. :) There is just something amazing about being in a room filled with people who share the same passion for something as you do.

If you love photography, beautiful pictures and/or great writing head on over and visit kamee.

Here are a few of the images that I captured at her workshop...

These two are so good looking it hurts...and yes they are a real couple. It just ain't right, I know! :)

A big thanks to Kara Keough and Kyle Bosworth for putting up with us. (For you Real HW of OC fans...yes that is Kara from the show).
Yummy!!kamee doing her thing
Shout outs and thank yous to everyone who helped to make this day rock!! Kamee's fab assistants Amanda Schiavi and Joy Grainger. Bethany Graham, Shannon Eberhardt,the awesome stylists Katrina Kirk and Diana Lopez of hello beautiful salon and the lovely Chino airport. The day would not have been the same without the help from everyone...thank you, thank you!!!

as promised

much cuteness in this post!

I had SO much fun with this mother-son team the other night that sometimes I forgot I was supposed to be working. I mean look at that little face...I just wanted to squeeze it all night. I told little Mr that he was so cute I just wanted to eat him up and to that he replied "I'm not food." Well he should be!!

Thanks for finally giving me a call guys I loved our time together. Enjoy your sneak peek and your trip to Canada. :)

This is fast becoming my favorite shot of the session. Can't you just feel the love?

up next...

a lot of cuteness!!

love this fam-bam

This family is no stranger to my blog...and is one of my favorites. More like family I would say! :) It was a rather quick shoot because a certain birthday girl just wasn't feeling well, but I think we did pretty good with the time we had. :)

Thanks guys...love ya!!

Oh the madness!!This is my favorite image. I love the warmness of the colors and the soft feel. I hope that all of you love it too as I plan on using them a lot more.:)

Nick...class of 2010

As promised, some senior fun!

Nick is a graduating senior this year and I had the pleasure of meeting up with him in Redlands for some fun. He is the sweetest guy and humored me very well with my requests. :) Yep, I love when my clients trust me, but I know they are really thinking "what is this crazy lady thinking?"

Thanks for the fun Nick and best of luck to you on your college adventure. I can't wait to read a masterpiece of yours someday!

senior fun

coming up next!


First off, I love that my fpf (fav photo fridays) are looked forward to and asked for when I slack. :) Thanks for being awesome and loyal to my blog!!!

My pick for today's fpf is just proof that an image doesn't have to be perfect in every element as long as it's perfect for the person it's meant for. This one was meant for me and is perfect in every way. It freezes time and will always help me to remember how much my little one LOVED the swings and could spend hours on them if we let her.

Happy Friday all!!!!

I love when my awesome clients are willing to just go with the flow and not ask questions.

You might remember this little love-bug from our previous session and this time she brought along her rockin parents! Such a fun time...thanks a ton you guys...you rock!

Enjoy your sneak peek...

Just something about daddy's and their little girls that melt my heart!
