So this may have been one of my most expensive photo shoots to date- let me explain. While driving around looking for parking on the way to the shoot, I see some poor sap getting pulled over by a bicycle cop. To which I reply to my hubby, “wow, that sucks! who gets pulled over by a bicycle cop? what a dummy” (no offense to the LAPD, of course). Well, we go around the block still looking and suddenly, I tell Ry to take a left and guess what- we get pulled over by a bicycle cop! NO LEFT TURN!! I’ll take full responsibility on this one because apparently my husband doesn’t know how to read and technically I told him to turn (and good husbands always listen no matter what right, ladies?). 

So…I text my client to let her know that we’ll be a little late since we’re getting a ticket and there is this little voice inside of my head telling me “better tell her not to make a left off of Ventura”. Do I listen? Of course not. So a few minutes go by and Ry lets me know that the family is here. I look around and say “where are they?” and he says “right over there- they’re getting a ticket”!!! Argh!! 

Lessons learned:

1.) Don’t talk smack about the ding dong that gets pulled over by the bicycle cop because you’re probably going to be next.

2.) When the little voice tells you to do something- DO IT!! (Unless of course it’s the “bad” voice, then maybe you should reconsider before proceeding).

I hope you have enjoyed my little story and despite all of that drama the shoot was a blast!! Can this family be any more beautiful? I mean seriously, gorgeous dad, smokin’ hot mama (even after two kids- yes, I’m a bit jealous), and two of the most adorable little boys!! Thanks again for another great shoot!!

Oh my goodness! Talk about some characters! These two have been married for a couple of years now and decided it was about time to get some new photos of the two of them together. So we did a couples session. Pretty much just like an engagement session only they already had the wedding! I had an absolute blast photographing them all around town. We went just about everywhere! We were shooting in an alley behind a fire station and to my surprise, we were invited in and they even lent us some rockin’ props!! How ironic that Kristin’s dad just happens to be a fireman!! I’m sure he got a kick out of those ones!! And how could I possibly resist the Obama and Palin cupcakes? (Like I’ve mentioned before- I’m way behind on blogging, so this shoot was before the election!) I thought I might die laughing when Kristin nonchalantly asked Stu “Wanna bite of Palin?”. You two crack me up!!

This beautiful girl happens to be the niece of my good friend in Missouri. I’ve always thought she was a pretty girl but now at 14- wow!! We had an awesome time shooting out in the snow, goofing off, and hanging out at the VW graveyard. Good stuff. Hope you love them Sanka!!
