August is over and so ends the August Break pic-a-day project. I'm so glad I decided to participate. Through this month long picture journey I've made connections with other photographers that share my passion, encourage and support my work, and inspire me with their own amazing art. That in itself is priceless. I've also grown as a photographer and discovered the wonder that is flickr. I can't believe I hadn't been active with my account on there! Overall this has been a crazy, fun, busy, and challenging month. I'm looking forward to what fall brings...fall colors, cooler weather, and of course...fall fashion! I've already purchased my new boots. :)

He's getting so big, brave enough to ride off in front of me. "Mommy! I'm going FAST!" I had to snap this sweet summer shot with my phone.

August Break is riding off into the sunset. One last day. :(

Melissa Photoshoot

If you've been reading, talking, or in any sort of communication with me in the past week I'm sure you have heard me talk about the photoshoot with my girlfriend Melissa last weekend. We had a blast collaborating on idea's for style. I'd already had most of the locations scouted out from my country road drive to work every day, the constant inspiration of open fields and unused rail road tracks were finally made to use. The actual shoot was so fun! And I couldn't be happier with the results. Melissa brought out her inner super model and she looks amazing!

I love you Melissa!! And I can't wait for the next one! XOXO

Whew... just made it!

These lovely sprouts are taking over the cracks in our sidewalk and every morning the dew sparkles on them and I just had to plop down for a few shots before I headed into work.

8/26 Missing

So my laptop is in the shop, AKA my best friends house, because it gave me the blue screen of death. I'm praying it's nothing serious!! So thats why no August Break picture yesterday.

I'm so close to being done with all the edits from last weekends shoot and I'm dying to share these pictures with the world! Hopefully it'll be fixed by this evening and I'll get to post a picture for today, I took some this morning just in case.

Happy Friday!

It's after 12AM so technically this is the 25th of August.

I'm going to make myself turn off this laptop after this post and go to bed. The issue isn't an addiction to blogging...it's the obsessive nature I get when I start editing photo's from a recent photo shoot. I'm so in love with the pictures from last weekends shoot! Finally one of my girlfriends agreed to help make my visions a reality. It was a blast and I can't wait for the edits to be done so I can share these pictures! So today's August break picture is of me being a total spaz at midnight, in my jammies, doing photo edits.

OK goodnight!

8/24 Baby love

Did a photo shoot of my friend Megan's niece and nephew last weekend. Finally finished with all the edits and had to share some of the sweetness! Meet Presley and Ava. :)


It's Monday, my back still hurts, and I'm cranky.

I highly doubt I'll get around to taking any spectacular pictures today so I just took a shot of myself working in my cubicle. At least I love my new BCBG 80's top.

I did try to take a walk to see if it would improve my back, didn't work but took a shoe shot.

B aaaaaaack!!!

No idea what I did to tweak it but HOLY BACK PAIN BATMAN! My BFF that suffers with crazy backpain on the daily loaned me these bad boys...

So I've been sending mini electric currents into my lower back all day long. I'm saying prayers this is better by tomorrow and seriously sympathizing with my BFF today.


Happy Sunday!

8/20 (really? already?)

Seeing summer draw to a close and it sort of bums me out. Nothing cheers me up like cupcakes!

A new cupcake shop opened up in nearby Folsom. I had to get a few for "special treats." Georgia Peach was for my mom, Confetti was for my son, and the Chocolate Coconut Macaroon was for me. All were delicious!

Drive by shooting.

That is one dirty, cracked windshield! I hate car maintenance.

Driving home as the sun set required I take advantage of the light even if it was just to be silly.

Yes, I took these while I was driving in my car. Is that illegal?

One of the super cool things about the "August break" project is that I've taken more pictures so far this month than I think I have all year. Last night I got home and I was exhausted mentally and physically from work and a killer circut at the gym. My son wanted me to rough house with him but my arms felt like noodles from the super set bicep curls and tricep extentions. So when he suggested we go outside I agreed that was a good idea, sun was setting and we all know that makes for nice pictures so I grabbed my camera. He followed me around chasing bugs and throwing pool toys in the pool. I took pictures of the ripples he made until it was dinner time.

After dinner I saw that my Fall Fashion In Style had arrived, Summer is almost over.
