La Vie Boheme's 2012 Return

Jessi and I have been busy working away, but we finally took a day to kick off a long list of well groomed photo shoot plans we made just after the new year. We've had so much success with our adventurous and spontaneous outings, we though creative brainstorming, visions and sketches could only make it better. Yesterday proved us wrong (we're not giving up!) in every way. Our winter-themed plan complete with cotton ball snow strings and cozy attire, was already off to a bad start given the 77 degree weather. After a 3 mile hike on a hunt for trees that tangled our snow beyond recognition, we ended up just snapping some sunnier photos than planned, and conceded defeat. We will have a rain check. There will be cotton snow. Sometimes we just have an off day and have to make the best of it. At least her hair looked great and red is her color :)


Christmas Eve Family Photo Shoot

I've been friends with Cambria since we were 12 years old, so when her mom and I hatched a plan to surprise Cam and her little brother with a photo shoot on Christmas Eve I couldn't have been happier. I had so much fun running around the hills in Laguna on the sunniest December 24th you could imagine. It was such a joy photographing them just being themselves, telling old stories, and playing. They made me feel like part of the family and it was a great holiday memory :)
