splish splash

Oh summer is here in the hottest way. If you know me at all then you know I am NOT a fan of it and it's long hot days. Don't get me wrong there are things I enjoy about it. Who can hate summer vacations, beach trips, camping, bbq's, fresh squeezed lemonade and ice cream...lots and lots of ice cream? Not me...I do love those things!

Summer has it's moments and here have been a few of my recent favorites.

The kids think I'm the greatest for getting them this fancy pool for the backyard. Shh, don't tell them any differently. ;)

Cheers to summer and your favorite things about it.

Now go have some fun!!!

and the winners are.... {Cabazon Photographer}

So if you remember last month we had the pleasure of being part of Cabazon Outlets Strike a Pose event again this year. Such a fun time! Well the winners were crowned and now it was time for them to have their special shoot.

I had the pleasure of working with these awesome winners a couple of weeks ago. They were so laid back and fun....just my style.

Here are just a few of my favorites from the day. Really there were many, it was so hard to narrow them down. These images will be used in Cabazon's ads for the year, on display around the mall and near by locations, on facebok and on their website.

A BIG thank you to Cabazon Outlets for having us back this year.

To the amazing and talented winners..

a splash of color {Redlands Family Photographer}

This family is no stranger to my blog. They make an appearance at least once a year. Every time is an adventure and a fun one at that.

 I love this family, like really love them! You see, I don't let too many people into my close inner circle so when I do you better know I love you! ;) They just moved and we miss them already. Although they are not a great distance away it's still not the same. With busy schedules at both ends I know we won't get to see our friends as much as I would like. Don't get me wrong, we are super happy for them, just sad for us. ;)

So "L" family we miss you already and know that we love you!!

Enjoy your sneak peek...

This next one is one of my favs of the day!

strike a pose {Cabazon Photographer}

Last week I had the pleasure of photographing the 3rd annual Strike A Pose event at Cabazon Outlets. This is my second year doing it and I just love it! So much fun to see the contestants strut their stuff down the catwalk. And the look on the winners faces is priceless.

It was a beautiful day in Southern California, but I have to admit that I was very grateful for the breeze. It got a little toasty at times if you know what I mean. ;)

 And a big shout out to Ron-T for an awesome job as our MC for the day.

Thanks for the fun everyone!!

Here are just a few from the days events...

Can you spot me in this next one???

And the winners...

We are shooting the winners session this week so stay tuned for more fun.
