What fun it was to photograph this beautiful couple! Colleen and David were married on 6 April 2009 after dating for 15 years! They have such a beautiful blended family and the love that was there was truly felt. I am so greatful that I had an assistant, Sheila did an incredible job!
She is wanting to break into the field of photography and is well on her way!
Here they are coming down the glass stair case . I did the art work on this image, I think it turned out really pretty with the lighting and flowers.
Thanks for helping me Sheila, you were a life savor!

It is pretty amazing when your really great friends (Sam & Debbie's) daughter (Sheila) has 2 daughters of her own and you get to be apart of all the joy in their family!I had the opportunity of photographing lil Miss Emily. She is just a sweetie pie!I am so proud of the her wonderful parents. Its just so touching to have seen Sheila grow up, (she is the same age as my 1st born Grant,) and now watching her raising her beautiful little daughters with the help of her sweet and way cool husband Ray is just the best!Thank you so much for letting me be apart of your family!
And introducing lil Miss Aaliyah, Emily's big sister. This little precious girl absolutely loves animals, both real ones and stuffed ones! I could barely hold her still long enough to take her picture because she kept running down to the lake to see the ducks! But its okay, I love this image of her because its just so "Aaliyah" and I love her!

Its been such an incredible year at El Mo, so much has happened. This team put their shoulder to the wheel and it really paid off. I am so happy and proud that with everything that has gone on, Emily got to experience a wonderful Winter Guard Season!

In a hot, packed gym on the campus of Capistrano Valley High, rang these words ..." ... in the Regional AA Blue Division, in first place with a score of 87.4, gold medal and 2009 WGASC Champions ... El Modena High School!!!" With the confidence of a true champion team, they clinically, calmly and flawlessly, put on their best performance of the entire season on that tarp!!! They had countered a strong performance from Ontario and Gladstone High Schools and beat them by almost 2 full points, a unusual margin in scores in the high 80's. This gold medal comes on the heels of winning the Silver last season.
Way to go, Guard! ... we are all very proud of you winning that gold!
"One-Thousand Paper Cranes" was an incredible,.... beautifully written and technically difficult show ~ but a beautiful program. Way to go, Guard! ... we are all very proud of you winning the gold!

Easter Sunday

We traveled down to beautiful Fallbrook to celebrate Easter with the Miller Family.
Not everyone could make it but it was still incredible to be with family.
I am so happy I got this picture taken with all of us because Dad went to the hospital again the following day with trouble again with his diabetes. Its been really hard on him for the past few months, we are all hoping that Dad gets better and feels like his old self again.
He's the best dad ever.
I hope everyone had a beautiful Easter Sunday!

My 1st Blog Entry

Well, I finally made it with Emily's help. We are now true Bloggers. :-)
I wish we had this technology back when my little ones were little.
With how much I love photography I would have gone nuts!
But better late than never.
So, this is the start of our blog journey.
We will be posting some treasured things from our past and also posting from our daily life now!
I hope to have you all be apart of it, thank you for all you add to our lives!
