I had SO much fun photographing Caitlyn and her moms!  I could totally relate to 2 year old Caitlyn.  She is a girl on the move!!!

There is no standing still, no posing for this toddler, which of course i love because…. after all who wants to stand still?!

In the end I won, yes I beat a toddler.  How you ask?  I ran her crazy, she went from that over the moon, hyper crazy tired a toddler gets

to pooped out,  yes, it was only 15 seconds before she was on the move again, but i got it.  her and her mom’s just lying there, totally still.

i heart you, Caitlyn and your moms!!

Lobster Boil

OK, I gotta say, and i’m not just saying this because it was our party, but this 4th of July was by far the BEST i’ve ever had!!!!

I lived in SF for over 13 years and never saw the fireworks.  2 nights ago in Boston we were ON TOP of the fireworks!! Have you ever been so close

that you have ash falling on you?  So it all started when I found out that James Hook Lobster is open on the 4th.

After ordering 20 yummy steamed lobsters from them, (yes that’s right they cook them for you.  No seafood smell inside my apartment!!

I jumped onto my go to website, Etsy.  Must have photo props of lobster masks, check.

Cute muslin bags to hold bibs, napkins, crackers and of course lobster lollypops, check.

The red and white striped and lobster place mats from Carrot and Stick, check.  Incredible fireworks, thanks to the city of Boston, CHECK!

Yes, my dream had come true, we were going to have a lobster boil on the 4th in our back garden and then watch the fireworks from the roof.

The barge was parked RIGHT in front of our building.  I mean it doesn’t get any better!  The party of the year right outside our home and we didn’t have to leave our place!!!

Surrounded by my fabulous family and great friends we took full advantage of the beautiful evening!!!

My daughter can’t wait until the 4th next year as every morning she has woken up since the 4th she asks, “where are the fireworks?”

Ginger and Dan’s Engagement Session

When I was in San Francisco last month I caught up with Ginger and Dan and took some relaxed pre-wedding photographs.
I am so excited for Ginger and Dan’s Wedding at Solage in Calistoga!
I’ve known Ginger for a long time.  I first met her when we worked together in Advertising.  She has also assisted me on some weddings.
Ginger was my studio manager while I was on maternity leave (ya, like you actually had a maternity leave while owning your own business, ha ha!!)
Anyway, back to them…  I love and adore Ginger and couldn’t be any happier for her!
I am so happy that I got to spend time with Dan and get to know him before the big day!
You Guys and Bogie ROCK!!
See you guys next week at the Rehearsal Dinner at Rutherford Grove Winery
And whatever you do, don’t stress because you have the FABULOUS Kathy Higgins looking and you and making sure everything is PERFECT!
