{weekend wonder}

Holy Cow! I've been moving so fast my head is spinning!
I haven't done a blog post like this in awhile...lots of words and not so many photos. Lately it has been the other way around. But don't worry I've got some photos to share as well.

We are getting our carpets cleaned! I am crossing my fingers the stairs leading to the dungeon come clean! Note to self: buy floor mat to wipe our feet on as we come in from the garage.
I am teaching my scrapbook class at PMP today.
We are going to spend the rest of the day CLEANING!
I am setting aside a bunch of *schtuff* to be put into a storage unit to help clear out the house. Ah- room to breathe! It is going to be so nice. I told Zack that if our place doesn't sell and we end up staying here for a few more years at least it will be lookin' all spiffy! LOL!
I am planning a nice dinner for tonight to CELEBRATE Zack's promotion!!! We are so proud of him! He has moved up pretty quickly. He is a hard worker and his superiors know that he can get the job done!
It looks like he will be transferring to the Modesto branch so that opens up looking in Livermore, as well as Dublin and Pleasanton to buy our next home. It'll be tough at first with him commuting to Modesto. There may be nights where it will make sense for him to stay at his parents' house. Hopefully our housing situation will fall into place and we won't have to be homeless! And hopefully we sell this place so his commute isn't too far.
Our family is going through so much right now- all good stuff. But it sure is mind boggling!! I am always hesitant about change, but know that it can be a good thing. (though I am still being a worry wart over it!)

On Sunday we will be spending it with the ILs in their new home!! The movers are at their old house packing up 24 years worth of *schtuff*! Can you imagine?? I am overwhelmed with the *schtuff* we accumulated in the 5 short years we've been here!

I am having a fun time creating Custom Storyboards and Wall Galleries. It seems there has been some confusion...(Ellie you aren't the only one LOL!) The photos with the Photoshop created furniture- pretend like that is your furniture in your home. You are only buying the individual photos pictured within the room. You are not buying the entire Wall Gallery as one print. I hope this is making sense. You could always contact me if you are still confused.

In other KLP news...I am shooting a family with 6 kids in a new location this week!
Then a family with 2 adorable lil boys and I booked a newborn shoot!! This has been so much fun for me!!
I've had good response for the Boudoir Session...I can't wait to see what these girls dream up! Some of their ideas blew me away! They definitely want to get their sexy on!!!

I am almost done editing the rest of the Lily album and then onto editing my nephew's Senior Session.

Here we are enjoying the sunshine...
The dirty frames are from Paislee Press.

Ciao for now!

Can't Decide?? Help is on the way!

If you are at all like me, you have a hard time making decisions. It must be the Libra in me (you know the scales- weighing back and forth). I can sit in front of the Cheesecake Factory menu for hours! Have you seen that thing? It is HUGE! Anyway, I totally side tracked!!

I am a loyal Design Aglow reader and fan. They offer amazing tools and articles for photographers. When I saw their Inspire Guides, I knew they would be a great tool for me and my clients. I hate bare walls. But even more, I love and want to show off photos of my family and loved ones. I want my walls to look posh and stylish, something from the pages of Pottery Barn or West Elm, but yet they are still bare! These Guides will help you (and me!) design beautiful wall photo galleries! How ingenious is that???

Let me show you some samples so you can see what I am talking about:
How Super Sweet would this look in Baby Kalina's nursery?

I know you're in need of some help....;) you likey?

This adorable one isn't even mine, but I would consider having this display somewhere in my home! LOL

These are just another one of the many services offered by KLP and can be completely customized to fit your style and needs. If you've had a past session with me and would like a Custom Wall Gallery designed for you, just let me know.

Coming soon....Newborn Baby Sneak Peek!!

What did you do today???
I feel pretty accomplished!
Here is a rundown of what I got done:
4 loads of laundry
Totally cleaned microwave and fridge- inside and out
kitchen floor- like on my hands and knees
downstairs bathroom (got 2 more to go)
dusted under the entertainment center and LR furniture
Totally cleaned the washer and dryer- tons of detergent gook
washed sliding doors (got one more set)
Gathered a basket of toys to take to Grandmas. To stay at Grandma's!! Sadly, it didn't even make a dent in her collection!
put some fires out at work even though it is suppose to be a day off UGH!!
Target shopping (forewent- is that a word? the bank. wanted to get home and crack into my bag of chips and dip- yummo!!)

Took photos of lil peanut!
We've had great weather these past couple of days. I had to get pics of her in this adorable spring (is it spring yet??) outfit. Good thing I did, because shortly after our little shoot she spilled carrots down the front of her. She is a self feeder now...or at least tries to be :)

a different post process...

Always on the go...

She is feeling better today. No fever, just a lil whiney!
Still TONS to do (like a nap! and a massage! and coffee!)...better get back to it.


Geez! What a week! So happy it is Friday! SO happy I am home today! Too bad it is because Bean is sick! Double Ear Infection! Her first one. It turns out that she most likely didn't have Pinkeye...all the gook was from her cold and her sinuses backing up. On Wed she had a mild fever. The Dr. recommended bringing her in if it got around 102-103. On Thurs it was 103.2! We rushed her in to see the Doc and he confirmed her icky cold turned into a double ear infection. Man, did she bring on the sass with the ol doctor! Some parents might've been embarrassed with the way she was trying to climb out of the scale or the way she harshly removed the stethoscope from her back. I was secretly giggling at the way she was fighting for what she wanted :) She definitely knows what she wants!

Zack gets major brownie points. I had a seminar to attend (more on that later) so he planned to pick Katelyn up. I told him to call me if I needed to come home. The only call I got was to ask where her clothes were :) He took her over to the Grandparents' house. I called a few times to check in...she was fine :) No fever, Eating. Drinking. Took her medicine. Slept fine. We will take it easy today and let her rest. We planned on going out to Mom's new house! Possible staying the night and hanging out all day tomorrow...but we will just play it by ear.

So...the seminar- Sandy Puc's Tots to Teens I attended! Man, I loved it! I may become a seminar junkie. Well, a Photography Seminar Junkie!
I was almost late...Bay Area traffic is horrid!
It was at the Hayes Mansion...walking up it brought back so many great memories. I thought maybe we could spend our 3rd anniversary there. They have a great spa.
Anyway- I got to spend a few minutes at the Vendor Faire before it started and got a great starter package from Finao Albums. I can't wait to put one of these together!!
Sandy an I differ a bit...she has a HUGE, Gorgeous studio in CO. I don't, but I am real interested in learning more about studio lighting. Some of her portraits are not my style. But she offered a wealth of information. I am so excited to see where this journey takes us.
On the drive home my head was swimming with ideas! I need to create a game plan and take action! Otherwise, these great ideas will just keep swimming (and swimming and swimming) around in my head :)

I've got lots I am trying to juggle...hoping to keep all the balls in the air! I sort of thrive on this kind of chaos.
Teaching 2 scrapbook classes next weekend at PMP
Scrap Assignments due next week
Sessions to edit
House Stuff...lots of house stuff!
sick baby
I need to take pics and post about the aprons I made

And what do I always say?? What is a post without some photos???
You can see she isn't feeling well in her eyes :(
This onesie is an 18 month. It is HUGE On her! It gives you an idea of what a lil peanut she is.

Ciao for now!

Kalina Album Complete | Bay Area Newborn Photographer

Baby Kalina's album is complete!
Christine, I will be emailing you shortly with it.
Thank you both for this amazingly sweet opportunity.

Moving? Relocating?

I know I've been vague, so there have been a lot of questions about if or where we are moving. We want to take advantage of the market and buy a house. Our townhouse has been good to us, but we are ready to stretch our wings (and have room for more kiddos! I would love to get my scrap studio/office back too!!)
We are looking in Pleasanton, Dublin or Livermore- so not too far away and closer to our parents who are in the process of moving as well.
A lot of when and where we go rides on Zack's possible promotion. He may get transferred which would make Livermore ideal as far as location. Or he may stay where he is at and make Livermore a little too far and Pleasanton/Dublin ideal.
I am not looking forward to the whole process of selling our current home, but I know that the end result (a new house!!) will be worth it!
I am also not looking forward to finding Katelyn another daycare :( She has done so well where she is at. I am even contemplating keeping her there (and commuting with her) until she is potty trained and old enough to go to pre-school OR until I go crazy from the commute! LOL!
I am happily surprised that there are nice homes in those areas in our price range :)
In the meantime, we are creating a list (man, I love lists!) of things we need to do to get our house ready to go on the market. Man, I love purging! I already started in the scrap dungeon. Closets next...

and some pics of course!!!
Ms. Katleyn discovered my pom poms and loves shaking them all around. Uh Oh Dad! You are in trouble when this one follows in her Momma's footsteps!! Here she is watching The Backyardigans. She is still in her PJ top, jeans for daycare, messy bed head, holding onto her sppy cup of milk.

Mt. "CoolCat" Caleb. He woke up with an irritated eye, but that didn't stop his coolness! "WORD!" His adorable shirt was a gift from Beisel and made by my friend's cousin. See if you can figure that one out?! LOL!!

Meeting Kalina | Bay Area Newborn Photographer

A Sneak Peak for Momma...

OMG! Look at this face! SO totally cute- only a newborn could pull it off :)

I was told this one liked to sleep. She sure proved us wrong! She didn't sleep one wink during our session! Mom even tried to fill her tummy, but Kalina didn't want to miss out on all the fun.

Yah! I finally got to use the scale! My Mom scoured many flea markets and garage sales for this gem! I was supposed to use it for Baby Bean, but haven't....yet :) Aren't Moms the best??
I did something a lil different with my B&W editing...I brought some of the color back in. It looks very antique and cool. At least I think it does :)

I love it in brown tones too. So rich!

I still have lots more editing to do but just wanted to share some of what I got done.
This was my very first newborn photo shoot....I went in all nervous. I even had a cheat sheet of poses! LOL Emily served as a great assistant! Thanks, Em! I can't wait to photograph more fresh lil ones!

Sardelich Sneak Peek | Bay Area Maternity Photographer

No more teasers...this is the REAL Sneak Peek!

Yes, she is pregnant! 8.5 months! Can you believe it? She was a trooper too...climbing hills and fence posts in heels, laying in dirt and grass. I doubt she will have any problems handling a newborn and all the fun spills that come along with one :)
Thanks Alec and Christine for a beautiful shoot!

a little antique style...love how warm the photo feels.

old skool...I think they were talking about Christine's "stripper eyeliner"

Glowing Mom To Be...

They don't know if it is going to be a girl or a boy. Any guesses?
Christine and Alec your album is almost done. I hope you like what you see so far :)
