Happy Holidays everyone!!

I am leaving in the morning for a week in Mexico with Joe - I'm off to meet his family for the first time :) We had dinner with my dad's side of the family last night before going to Mass and had a lovely Christmas brunch this morning with my family before opening presents. My nieces loved their gifts - we couldn't get Abby off of her little Power Wheels quad although she hasn't mastered steering yet. I'll post lots of pictures when I get home - I'm coming home on the 2nd by myself so I'll have plenty of time to work on pictures until Joe comes home on the 12th :( I hope everyone has a safe and happy New Year's!!

Some more beach pics . . .

Last weekend I met up with the cutest five year old twins for some pictures for a New Year's card. We were worried it would be too cold but they had a blast playing in the sand and on an empty lifeguard stand and didn't act cold at all. Check out some of my faves:







Adrien + Cheryl + Mia + Lucy = Hasenmayers!!

and my friends :) and I had the pleasure of kapturing a few family pics for their Christmas card a couple weeks ago. I'm just catching up on my blogging and wanted to share a few of my favorites:




Santa brought me . . .

a new camera :) AND a new flash :) This post is a few days late - I've been playing with this baby for a few days and I'm super excited to use it on my January shoots once I get more familiar with it :)

Catching up . . . again :)

I know, I know - I'm guilty of blog neglect :) I've been super busy finishing up holiday sessions and getting my presents bought and wrapped. I'm almost done proofing a couple client sessions that I will post soon but in the meantime here are a few recent ones of my girls:





There's something about becoming a grandpa that makes old guys act goofy - I don't remember my dad ever acting so silly with us :)

Another fun family session . . .

I had another fun family photo session this morning at the Malaga Cove Library. The kids were lots of fun and kept me on my toes. Here's a few of my favorites:




Fun family session . . .

Last weekend I had an awesome family session at Malaga Cove Library - it was especially fun because I hadn't seen little Samantha in over a year and she's grown into such a little cutie! Here's a few of my favorites from our morning:














Thank you guys for trusting me to kapture your memories!

Thanksgiving 2008

I'm in the middle of proofing three client sessions but thought I'd take a break and post a few pictures from our Thanksgiving dinner. I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday with their families!
















Those who are waiting for sneak peeks - they should be up by tomorrow - thank you for your patience!
