Stopping to Smell the Roses

What a blessing to spend time with Miss Rachel and her “WaWa” (Grandma)!  Rachel was excited to see me and greeted me with a great big hug!  Gotta love it!

Rachel LOVED Balboa Park and it was so much fun to watch her discover all the different beautiful things there.

It was obvious that she is being trained early to “stop and smell the roses.”  And it was obvious that she loves her WaWa, who is teaching her so well.

Justin! No . . . Evan!

Well, I thought I had experience with twins . . . but IDENTICAL twins are a whole different ballgame!

I kept calling for the wrong one to look at the camera!  Fortunately, their beautiful mom had them color-coded, and that helped some . . . if I could remember which one was which color!

What it came down, to though, was that they were both sweet and smiley and fun!  Here’s . . . um . . . Justin!

Pretty cute, hmm?

A Sunset at Balboa Park

Because there sure wasn’t one at the ocean! Beverly, Brant, and Brianne had planned to meet at the beach, but when I arrived for their shoot, I said . . . “shoot!” This is what it looked like at the beach that evening:

So, quick!  We raced the sun over to Balboa Park for a nice sunset session among San Diego’s most beautiful architecture.

Beverly wanted some nice photos of their family before Brant headed back to his next assignment with the Marine Corps.  He had just returned from boot camp and was happy to be have ten days off to relax and recuperate.

Mom and sister were happy to have him around, too.

Most of the time.

So, just like Brant is making the most of his 10 days of freedom, we made the most of this San Diego sunset . . . and some memories to last.

Chargers vs. Browns: A Playdate

Seems that my friend Keri and her husband Mike have a bit of a friendly rivalry going on at their house. Sundays during football season, Keri’s cheering for the Chargers, while Mike roots for the Browns! This leaves their poor children in a perpetual state of confusion, as shown by their wardrobe choices in our fun photo shoot today during our playdate. Nicole and her boys came along for the fun!

Zach's look here says it all!  "Sorry, Daddy!"

And here's little brother Colby.  With eyes like these in the family, it's no wonder Dad roots for the Browns . . .

At my very first all-boy playdate, I'll admit that I did not miss the "girl drama."  Boys are so EASY.  Take a look at Zach and his best bud Isaac.  Two happy boys.

And then, they all went home.  Or, actually . . . we all zipped back over to the school to pick up our kids.

I picked up Girl Drama and brought her home.  The photo shoot continued . . .

Ready for Halloween!

Robert & Candie

Thursday afternoon I had the pleasure of meeting a friend from high school, Robert, and his fiance Candie.  Candie was still recovering from Robert’s surprise airport proposal from a few weeks before, and she was headed back home to Hawaii in just a few days.  As a Coronado-native, Candie wanted engagement photos in front of the Hotel del Coronado.
