Nothern California Engagement Session: Danny & Sheena

Danny's parents own a ranch up near Mt. Lassen, which just so happens to be about 1/2 hour from where I grew up! The area is absolutely gorgeous, and it was such a blast getting to hang out with these two for the weekend! I can't wait for their wedding!

Phew its been a while since I'm posted!  I've been out of town, and just busy busy busy. BUT, now I'll hopefully have some free time to get back in the swing of things! I shot an engagement session last week that I can't wait to post, and I'm pretty sure the kids below are the most adorable kids I've ever photographed. I may be biased because they are my nieces and nephews, but come on...they're pretty cute, right?!

Well hello rain, nice to see you again

Friday Favorites!

1. Favorite workout. I love running. I completely zone out when running, and manage to get a lot of thinking done and problems worked out while I'm working out. It's also a way of location scouting for me, since I often do portrait session in locations I pass when running! Since the weather has been a little nicer lately, and the days are longer, I've been able to become re-acquainted with some of my longer routes. My favorite is a loop that goes along Clement street, past Sutro Bath and onto the trail at Lands End with gorgeous views of the golden gate bridge. Then its in front of the Legion of Honor and through Lincoln Golf Course, down to Golden Gate Park, past the buffalo and the windmill, along Ocean Beach, then back home. It's a really challenging run, but totally worth it, and is absolutely beautiful.

2. Favorite wedding inspiration. Green Wedding Shoes. This is hands down my favorite wedding blog. I still check it out almost daily, and I was married 7 months ago, that's how awesome it is. The photos are gorgeous, the details and weddings are gorgeous. I just love it. Check it out and you will be hooked too.


3. Favorite Tradition. Tacos for Easter. A lot of families do the whole "ham for Easter thing" which is fine, but in my opinion tacos are a whole lot tastier than ham. My family does a big brunch for Easter, followed by a little kid egg hunt for my nieces and nephews, followed by an adult egg. Yes we still do egg hunts for myself and my siblings, and I'm the youngest at 26. We also still have baskets, only instead of them being filled with toys, they are filled with things we will actually use,like my favorite face lotion, or a target gift card. Instead of candy in our eggs we get lottery tickets. I love Easter.
