Lupin's and tutu's

The central coast is BLOOMING with flowers. Everywhere you go there is a rainbow of wildflowers all over the surrounding hills. I couldn't only imagine what it looks like from above.

I have been DYING to take Emily out and do pictures with her in the wildflowers...they say the next time it will rain this much and there will be this many flowers is when Emily is 7!! CRAZY. Let's not think about her being that old, because if you double that then she will be old enough to have her licence, most likely have put a boy or two through the ringer and will be graduating high school...which all equates to my life being over! I'm going to start focusing in the present so that I don't start tearing up!

So the other day I asked my besty Jessie if she would like to go with me out to the wildflowers and take some pictures of Emily. Little did I know that Reid would end up stealing the show. He was a HAM! I smiled for every picture or at least made some sort of facial expression for me. Emily on the other hand wasn't havin' it. She didn't want to look at me and when she did she would give me a "huh?" look!. So instead I just got pictures of her prancing around in her tutu, which turned out just about as cute as I could have ever wanted!

This actually turned out to be quite the trip. It was the first time I had found this place...it is quite the hidden gem. Located right between a shopping center and a freeway you wouldn't have ever been about to tell by the pictures.

I also learned that Chris (Jessie's husband)'s favorite flowers are lupins! What a coincidence that we were smack dab in the center of a whole patch of them

I have the wonderful opportunity of taking pictures of this bride this weekend. I am so excited! Jen is a friend of one of Aaron's cousin's wife's who is also one of my best friends and fellow photography lover. Jess, left me and SLO county to move to where her husbands job was in Texas, but I get to see her this weekend since she's the maid of honor. Of course this is only one of the reasons I'm excited about this wedding!

1) It's the first time that I am doing this by myself! It's going to be a wonderful learning experience for me since I am only doing the girls, the ceremony, and family shots afterwards. It's a HUGE step for me.

2) Jen is FANTASTIC! I've taken pictures of her several times now and she is a natural at being in front of the camera (which makes my job 100X easier)

3) It is going to be a beautiful day at one of the most beautiful venues on the Central Coast!

I am very much look forward to this weekend. An Early Congrats to Jen and her hubby to be!!

Spring is in the air. . .

I apologize to everyone for my temporary hiatus!

I recently have taken on too much to handle. Between my Pathways Bible study (which is sadly almost over), my online schooling, trying to design and make my own website, the beginning of wedding season, and just trying to raise a 2 year old, I have been in it way above my head.

Now that my Pathways is almost over, and my website is done (but not running) I am hoping that I will have freed up enough time to be able to blog daily again.

I have missed so much on here in the last month. Such as an awesome trip to Yosemite and Emily being potty trained completely...

To my faithful readers: I'M BACK :) and thank you for making this something worth my time.
