Vision 2011

Definitely feel a little behind, but I’m finally getting around to posting some pictures of Vision! Vision 2011 was a six week evangelistic event hosted by Calvary Chapel of Costa Mesa this past summer. Unfortunately, I was only able to attend the last night, but what I experienced was amazing. Lots of volunteers coming together to serve the local community with the goal of spreading the gospel, and hoping they are won to Christ through salvation. Anyways, the last night we were stoked to have Leeland here to close out the event. They are such amazing and genuine people, with an awsome talent that they use to glorify their Lord. Praise God for all the hearts that were brought to salvation that night!

Pastor Garid preaching the gospel and inviting people to make a commitment give their lives to Jesus Christ.
Thanks to all the people who came out this summer! Can’t wait to see what happens next year.

Weekend Happenings

This past weekend was A-mazing. It was the first weekend in quite a while that my husband and I were actually able to relax together all day and go out on a date night! On Saturday, we meandered around the Orange traffic circle for a few hours and found this really cool flea market! If you know me at all, you will know that I LOVE all things ‘bird’. Specifically owls. So with that in mind, I found this wooden platter with a bird design and I snagged it before anyone else noticed this vintage gem. Hopefully it will make some sort of an appearance in a photoshoot soon. Isn’t it cute??

Saturday afternoon I headed over to my parents neighborhood to take pictures at Natasha’s 5th birthday party. I used to nanny for Natasha from 9 months-to about 3 years old, and have photographed each of her birthday parties since she was two. It is mainly the same group of kids each year, and its fun seeing how much they’ve changed in a years time. This year was the first “girls only” ballerina themed party. Natasha even had a ‘real ballerina’ make an appearance and show the girls some new ballet moves. Happy 5th Birthday Natasha! I can’t believe how fast your growing up. Enjoy a few detail shots!

One of my friends encouraged me to add my site to bloglovin.com. So here it is.  Blog lovin is a great way to network. You can search for blogs by category and keep track of the ones you want to follow. I’m excited to find some new blogs by like minded photographers. Bring on the inspiration!

And just because posts are so much better with a picture: This is a picture of Josh’s  best friend. He was previously rollerblading with his [much bigger] German Shepherd and Copper felt a little left out so we had to give him a turn too. 🙂
