'Tis The Season

Five days before Christmas and the weather was a brisk 70 degrees. The elf was dressed in a black, zebra print bikini and the sun painted the sky with an amber hue! Christmas in Southern California is brutal!


We went out looking at Christmas lights this weekend. Of course we brought a camera along and tried to photograph things that would put us in a holiday mood and still try to be as creative as possible. We had a great time! The Mission Inn in Riverside always does it up right!

Rima and Brooke

This weekend we spent some time out in nature photographing an old friend and a new one. Rima is an old high school friend, and her daughter Brooke is a brand new friend...though at first we weren't sure. She was shy and nervous when we met, and didn't seem to be in the mood to make new friends or have her picture taken. And then the marshmallows came out. I hid a marshmallow in each hand and made her pick one...her smile outshone the sun and from that point on, we were friends. She even called me the 'Marshmallow Man' when we left. After a while, a marshmallow war broke out and if you look close at that last picture, you'll see that Brooke is very good at marshmallow War!

Ramirez Family at Downtown Disney

When the Ramirez family wanted a holiday portrait, they decided to go someplace that would be decorated to the hilt. We spent some time with them at the Grand Californian hotel smack dab in the middle of Downtown Disney. We worked in and around the hotel for a bit and then headed to the parking lot. On the way we made one more stop at the Lego store. Disney and that's a good day.
