Elite Fit Club [business+event]

Get Your Fit On!

In late October I had the privilege of working with an awesome new business in Rocklin/Roseville, Elite Fit Club.  Two of my friends have started a fitness club where they train, teach, and inspire other women to live a healthy lifestyle through diet and exercise.  [They have inspired me; and so far I've lost 30 pounds!]  I did their business portraits plus some extras for their website. Check them out on facebook

I got the chance to work with them again in mid-November to photograph a community event they did.  EFC offered free PiYo class to the public.  They cleared out the center of Lucy at the Fountains in Roseville and the ladies laid out their mats to enjoy a morning workout.


I look forward to working with EFC as both of our businesses grow! More to come soon :)

We're still here!!

A fresh start to the blog

Long time no blog!! 

The past few months have been a little busy for our family... we moved (which is such a small word that has such a big meaning... packing, cleaning, hauling, lifting, unpacking, organizing, settling in), we're raising a [almost] 2 year old, creating the new website (thanks to my awesome hubby), plus just doing the everyday life stuff!  This post though is my new fresh start on the blog! Ahhh it feels good too :) After this post I will be working on doing blogs for all the sessions that have sadly gone by the wayside... They will have a chance to shine!! 

I'm looking forward to writing more and I hope you will come back to see what we've been up to!  And hey, have a look around the new site while you're here!

Xoxo

A Day In The City

Our Trip to Sanfrancisco

IMG_8838Yesterday Sean, Emma, and I decided to take a little trip to San Francisco :) Sean's birthday is coming up and we wanted to celebrate by going to one of our favorite cities. Our first stop was at the California Academy of Sciences [Sean won 2 tickets in a raffle at Christmas time]. First we went through the African animals, which Emma loved! At the end of the section they had 17 African penguins that were very funny and Emma went right up to the glass to see them up close. Next we went to the Rainforest :) There was 3 levels filled with ponds, plants, birds, frogs, snakes, spiders, geckos, and free flying butterflies. It was so much fun seeing the excitement on Emma's face when a butterfly would flutter by. Sean and I though were ready to get out of there by the time we got to the top; they keep it a humid 85 degrees in there! (note there is only one picture of the rainforest in the gallery because my lens fogged up instantly, but I had to show you Emma's face when a butterfly was close to us.) Last, but definitely not least, we went to the aquarium (Sean's favorite part)! There were fresh water and salt water sections all filled with beautiful fish and coral. I can't even count the number of times Emma said "fishies" or the number of times of times I caught Sean wishing he could have a tank the size of our house :)

Little T

IMG_8691This past October 31st was a very special day [and not because it was Halloween]. That was the day that my nephew, Tavion, was born :)
He was 9 weeks early and weighed only 2lbs 12oz. Since he is so small he has to stay in doors until May.
I finally got to meet him last week [I had to get my flu shot first] and he is such a precious boy!
He is 3.5 months old now and almost 9lbs.
When I was photographing him he actually rolled over [for the first time! (twice)];
not only was it the first time I met him, but I was there to witness one of his first milestones :)

Anyways, here is this sweet boy...

Birthday No.23

My 23rd Birthday

23 years ago I was born.. yay me!!

I got to spend the day with my favorite people and they made it very special for me :)
I woke up to a Starbucks from my little brother, Josh.. mmm caffeine. Then I went shopping with my hubby, baby, and mom and got a cute top.. After an afternoon nap it was dinner time.. We decided on Chicago Fire Pizza and it did not disappoint! Pizza, salad, and a cold beer... what could be better? Oh yeah and birthday pizookie!! It was great and I was in great company :) When we were finished stuffing ourselves we hung out at my bestie's house where she gave me a delicious present that I would eat later :) Icing on the cupcake!!

All in all it was a great day (and a beautiful one at that! Who could ask for anything better then 70 degrees in the beginning of February?).
Here are a few pics from the latter part of my day :

Cousins

Gabbi and Gavin

Yesterday my niece and nephew (Gabby and Gavin) came over for the day... They are two year old twins and they are lots of fun!! Emma had a blast with her cousins (now that she is bigger she doesn't get knocked around as easily).

We played in our play room/ studio and I put up a backdrop just in case they walked in front of it! They thought it was more fun to run behind it and hide then to sit in front of it though :)

After lunch and Emma's nap they needed a bath, so I threw them in with some bubbles and scubbed up.. Gabby thought it was fun to wash Emma.. It reminded me of pictures I have with my cousins in the tub; such sweet memories...

Weekend Gataway to Bodega Bay

Fun trip with the family

It's been a while but I'm back to blog!! We've been busy with traveling and illness (basically just life). A couple weeks ago we got to get out of town and decided to go to Bodega Bay. The weather was amazing for this time of year (sunny and NO rain!). It was Emma's first time really playing in the sand; she loved it! It was also her first time getting pink eye :-( However, even with pink eye she was all smiles and had a great time. On the Saturday we went on a long drive along the ocean with Emma sleeping in back for her morning nap. On the way we took a detour to go to a "Community Market" but never found it (on the way back we saw the sign said "Sunday"). The road we took lead us up the mountain and instead of turning around we decided to see where the road would lead. It took us deep into the forrest and turned into a one-lane dirty road. The scenery was absolutely beautiful and was completely quiet. We pulled off the road to walk up some trails near a small creek. We were surrounded by clovers, ferns, and evergreen trees. Once out of the forrest we found a bluesy bbq restaurant in Gualala, "Bones". It was the tastiest bbq I've eaten in a loooonnggg time :)
Sunday we had to leave a few hours earlier then planned because Emma's pink eye spread to the other eye and we had to get her to a Med 7. We all had an awesome time and we can't wait to go back.

UT OH!

Spaghetti-Oh's

Last night Emma tried Spaghetti Oh's for the first time! She had a blast making a mess all over her tray (and her face!). She loved those Spaghetti Oh's and I'm sure she can't wait 'til she gets her hands on another bowl of them :)

Junk Funkies

"Play That Funky Music White Boy"

Last night Sean and I went to Coach's in Rocklin to see the Junk Funkies perform. One of our friends is in the band, so we thought we would check them out. We had a blast listening and watching this funky cover-band! They played an array of songs from "Brick House" to "Sexyback". Everything about them was entertaining; their sequin covered outfits were my favorite part!

Check them out at www.junkfunkies.com.
