i met up with elysha and her friend kristine on a gorgeous afternoon in avila. these girls had the biggest, most genuine and beautiful smiles… makes a photographer’s job sooo easy!
brenda is a good friend, a new neighbor, and waiting on the arrival of her first little girl in just about two weeks (doesn’t she look fabulous???)
last day of a beautiful, luxurious winter break (that felt more like summer than summer vacation did.)
letting the light in
snuggles (my fave!)
such silliness (learned to animate a .gif for this…)
sun + calculus
i share this wonderful personal project with a lovely group of photographers… follow through to nancy lary’s blog (she’s rad) to see her project 10 for january.
i’m admittedly awful about documenting my own family with any regularity. i took 10 pictures on christmas morning. my camera was within arms reach for most of the day and i never felt particularly inspired to pick it up.
sometimes i feel like those special days are cemented in our childhood memories without photographs or video anyway, but days like this lazy afternoon at the beach are what i love to document. logan simply requested to go to the beach with the big hill (near the pier in pismo where the tide pushes the sand up against the retaining wall). it’s week two of our three week winter break, weather is summer-like, and it was the perfect family afternoon. no agenda. just girls exploring and me snapping away at what i found beautiful.

third installment (that should be the fifth, but oh well!) of my personal project… documenting our beautiful, messy daily life. since we’re back to school full-time, my ‘day’ has been documented in the sweet few hours remaining to spend with family before bedtime each night. i’m splitting the difference here with 7 moments captured with 12 images… i just couldn’t get 10 images to work out quite right this time :)
- resting after school
- the crafty mess
- christmas everywhere
- busy while dinner cooks
- so many missing teeth (& crazy!)
- nighty night
as always, i’m doing this project with a group of wonderful photographers. please click through to see jayme franklin’s 10-on-10 project this month.
i’ve joined a group of 10 photographers with a monthly project to document real life… as photographers, we often get caught up in the perfect portrait and forget the beauty of every day stuff. while the original format of 10-on-10 is to post 10 images taken over the course of 10 days on the 10th of each month, i haven’t quite managed that goal just yet. first, i’m a master procrastinator, so i continue to put off the day i’m planning to work on this project, until it’s simply too late. as i mentioned in august (yep, i’m such a procrastinator that i missed the september edition) i’m using a film camera for personal/family images, so this set is from a recent day at the beach with my girlies. october is almost always our best beach weather of the year, so this is fitting :)
head on over to jayme franklin’s blog to see her 10 on 10 images for the month!
