Magic Light, Daffodils and Spunky Kids..... {Big Bear Lake Arrowhead Photographer}

I've had these 3 beautiful pictures on the wall of my kids for over a year. It's time to change them out. The only trouble is that getting good pictures of my 7 year old guy is nothing short of a miracle lately. He's really next to impossible. It's not that he doesn't behave he just doesn't know what I expect from him so he's very animated in his effort to please. Poor guy. Poor me. Knowing all that I took them out anyway with a bag of hope and a prayer. My little Ava is learning how to rock my camera and it's so fun. Girls are just more prone to modeling I guess. lol! Thankfully during this hour long adventure in some magical light I captured the three photos I needed to replace the ones on my wall, and also many more cherished photos of my perfect little gifts.
Happy Weekend and thank you for stopping by!

Fifty Two on Fridays {Week 17} Light

Light.

Welcome and thank you for visiting! Every Friday a group of fun photographers post a photo on the same topic. And we're doing it for the whole year, 52 weeks. It's fun to see how we all interpret each week's theme so if you would like to take the tour just click on the link below my photo for this week theme of Light.
I found this magical little forestry cabin that has very sweet light at just the right time. So today I took Ava and Connor out for a photoshoot and purposely snapped this one for the theme...I didn't even need the light behind her, she is "light" all by herself. xoxo

The C Family {Big Bear Lake Arrowhead Family Photography}

Last week I drove out to Lancaster to meet up with a special family. I've known them for a long time. Mindy even drove to Big Bear when her 2 year old was a newborn so that I could practice on her when I first started out. It was fun to see that little newborn so big! The weather had been sketchy that week but we decided to do it anyway and it worked out perfectly. And "PaPa" found a little morsel of beauty tucked away in the forest that we could shoot at. The little ones didn't want a whole lot to do with me or my honkin' camera but I chased them around anyway and got some sweet captures. Thank you C family! It was great to see you again!!

Fifty Two on Fridays {Week 16} Pastel

Pastel is perfect for this week. I had a few ideas and it was a tie between these two so in the end I decided to use them both. :) I went to 3 different stores to find 5 different colors of Peeps. And I learned that Peeps come in 6 colors, the only one I'm missing is orange, which I've never seen before. The bunny is our very pesky pet, Kingston. He's a sketchy little guy. I wonder if it has anything to do with me using him as a prop. Hmmm, I might want to consider that as the cause. LoL! Happy Easter!!

Gaviota, CA Bloom Shoot {Big Bear Lake Arrowhead Photography}

Last weekend I got together in Gaviota, CA with a talented group of ladies for a shoot-out. We're all on the same forum together and we all have the bond of photography. Jen from Z's The Day Photography did an amazing job at putting this together at a gorgeous blueberry farm. She did casting calls for all our sweet models and her friend Vernie was gracious enough to let us all descend on her beautiful land for the day. My friend Laura of Twice As Nice Photography, drove me out there and put up with me all day. I really enjoyed the time with her. Thank you Laura! I met some wonderful ladies and saw some familiar faces too. It was so super nice to see all of you! Vernie, thank you for having us and your hospitality. You are sweet to the core! Here are photos from the day! Thank you for stopping by!

Fifty Two on Fridays {Week 15} Texture

I could have taken so many pictures this week for Texture. As a photographer, we get really keen on the textures around us. But one texture that I love, one that always makes me smile and even brings me back to my own childhood is the wrinkly hands and feet of my bath-soaked kids. There is something about that texture that is funny, sweet, and nostalgic all at the same time. No matter who you are, or what your story is....at some point in life you've had bath induced wrinkles too. ;)

Petti Rompers and Headbands OH MY! {Big Bear Lake Arrowhead Photography}

I recently connected with a talented and local Etsy artist. If you don't know what Etsy is, it's a site for everything beautiful, creative, and either handmade or vintage. It's a paradise to me. Just looking around on Etsy feeds my inner artistic beast. So last week "N" came over and dropped off a load of gorgeousness that I was able to play with right away. It just so happened that my little niece Hailey was visiting and for some reason her and Ava were more than happy to model for me. Well, it could have been the candy that made them happy to do it, but either way they did it. lol! I just love that N sells these petti rompers in larger sizes too! The headbands are so pretty and match her rompers perfectly and can also be found in her Etsy shop.

She's coming over with more colors and new products to sell in her shop next week so check back to see what else is coming!
