A fun senior portrait session

Monday, November 29, 2010
I had fun with a gorgeous High School senior yesterday in Balboa Park.  She was such a sport, through the freezing weather, and my 300 spots I wanted to try out, she just kept on smiling.  She's at such a fun time of her life, and it was fun to just hang out with her for an hour and get some gorgeous pictures.  Here are a few sneak peeks...there are many more to come!

She likes to boogie

We were outside trying to take a few pictures of Jason's robot for school, and the little miss wanted to steal the show.  She brings out toys that play music just so she can dance.  She'll hit the button, run out and dance, then come right back and start over again.  It's quite amusing. 

So, here she is, by her request, pictures of her dancing...

A special day at school

Friday, November 26, 2010
Last Friday was a very special day for Sydney at school, it was...

Grand Persons's Day!
Sydney got in front of her class to introduce her special Grandma.
She said "This is my Grandma, and she likes plants."  We figure she had no idea what Grandma really likes to do, but since she has many plants on her balcony it was a pretty good spur of the moment answer!

November was the month of gratitude for her school, I thought this note that was hanging up was pretty sweet.  I wonder who all of the fabulous pets are though.  And, I wonder why it always happens that they take the important pictures on our craziest of hair days! 

I've ruined them!

I ask them to go stand together in front of this gate, and this is what I get...

Love it.  They are so goofy, so posed, and so darn cute.  We had a fabulous Thanksgiving with our closest family.  The girls got to go on two pony rides, and pet some bunnies, chickens, and goats.  I dressed them in their Xmas card outfits, it hopes of getting a cute picture of each girl for our wall.  Got one of Syd, got a fabulous pouting picture of Brooke.  Oh well, we will try again. 

The Girl Scout troop

Here they are, just before their big rock climbing adventure (plus an extra big brother, Griffin). Sydney is having so much fun this year, the girls are all getting to know each other so well, and they are doing a ton of fun activities. Next month is a practice camp out!

Smile, Mommy!

We got some new funky camera thingies in the mail today, so I asked Sydney to take a picture of me with my camera-phone so I could text it to Tricia.  I ended up taking a picture of her taking my picture right as the flash went off...came out kinda cool!

Making progress...

Oh man, so many photos, so many holiday cards! I was slightly thankful for the rainy weekend of cancellations so that I can get closer to being caught up! I think I will be mostly caught up by Thanksgiving, with no more photoshoots until Sunday, so I can relax and enjoy a few computer-free days! Yippee.

Here is the current family I am editing photos for...another set of three kids, all boys, the two younger ones are twins. Here they are doing their hear no, speak no, see no evil interpretation:

The day after...

This is what you get with 4 kiddos the morning after the parents stay up way too late drinking beer & champagne!

I'm noticing a trend...

I just realized...from the last 5 family photoshoots I have done, the families have all had 3 children...every single one.  Strange, very, very strange.  I'm good with two!

Here are 3 adorable ones from our Help Patrick event yesterday:

Hula-ing the night away!

It's silhouette week over at I Heart Faces this week, I love silhouettes! I have all these grand ideas for shots I wanted to get out and take, but with 7 photoshoots this past weekend, 2 playdates, dance, and soccer today, I'm thinking my camera won't make it back out of its cozy bag.

This is one of my favorites of Sydney though, hula hooping the night away. I figured it was a fun one to share.

I'm sure there will be a ton of amazing silhouettes this week, check them out over here:

She loves me!

A picture from our weekend away in Temecula.  Aren't we adorable? 

So many pictures!

It is the BUSY season for Mamarazzi!  On top of all of the usual family photo rush, we also did two weddings last month.  So, every spare moment of my days have been spent working on pictures, LOTS of pictures.  Here is a peek from the current set I'm working on.  The oldest boy went to preschool with Sydney, and now the middle one goes with Brooke, so we've known them for a while.  We had fun with pictures in downtown San Diego.  Mom has her hands full with these adorable 3 boys!

A cool activity

Monday, November 8, 2010
We went by Home Depot the other day, and they had a big setup in the parking lot. The girls each got to make their own race car (hammer & nails, and all!). Then, they took a complimentary photo for us, here it is!

This is exciting!

Ok, it's probably only exciting to engineering geeks...AND, the wife who wants her life back.  This is the robot that Jason and his senior engineering team are moves now!  Soon it will move and navigate all on its own, and have a body on top. 

It has grown a lot since I last saw it here at home, so I am very excited to see the progress (and to see that his multitude of hours away from home are paying off).

Jason's new love

Tuesday, November 2, 2010
I've been replaced. He spends all day with him, he takes him everywhere he goes, and when he gets home he goes into the garage to spend more time with him. 

His name is "Johnny 6", and he's Jason's senior engineering robot.  This is just the base.  Ultimately it will be  a complete robot that can navigate on its own, and avoid obstacles.  Jason has done every bit of this so far...I'm not sure what the other 6 team members are doing, but he is having a lot of fun with it.

Can't wait for this semester to be complete!!
