Last weekend Anna and I hurried down to An All Inclusive Event to take some detail shots at a 50th Birthday Party.  All I know is that I would be thrilled to have my 50th in such a fantastic location.  Typically this area is used for Weddings, but it is also a great spot for birthdays, anniversaries, corporate events and memorial services.  I think Terilyn did a fantastic job styling out this spot, especially all the gaming areas…..  Hopefully we will have lots of images from this venue, as I LOVE to shoot in my own backyard.  Thanks for including us!  If you would like to book an event at this venue, head over to their website by clicking here An All Inclusive Event at Laguna Village.  If you book a wedding and use Blue Sky’s Studio, you will receive a free engagement sitting and a free 11×14 mounted portrait!

Here are some of the details from the event:

I always love to get a chance to photograph in our client’s home and last weekend was no exception.  I have been working with the Lattin family since the girls were babies and each shoot is more fun than the last.  I adore working with kids who know me personally and “ham” it up for me.  These two were definitely Mommy’s little helpers with their new baby brother.   My proudest image is the two girls kissing babies head, we REALLY WORKED for this shot!  Enjoy!

As many of you know, I refer to the Montage beach as my personal office.  I know, it is crazy that I am so lucky to call such a gorgeous spot my personal work space.  It was great to get back to it with this fabulous family, The Burons!  They so graciously got into a bidding war for the session and Canvas we donated to St. Marys of all Angeles school in 2009.  It is always fun when I get to meet the families at the auction and even better when they tell me they outbid the competition for a chance at a Blue Sky’s sitting!  Despite being a VERY WINDY day, we got some beautiful images.  Buron family, thanks so much for playing with me and I am thrilled to hear that not only was the shoot not painful for the kids, but that everyone had a great time!

Wow, I have forgotten how crowded the Mission can be with photographers on a Saturday afternoon.  Lucky for me, the Edwards family is as “cool” as they get.   Their daughter obviously has star quality and is such a pleasure to photograph.  Even when she wasn’t in the portrait, she was still posing off to the side.  Her mom and dad were truly a joy to work with!  They just renewed their vows after being married for ten years, and you can really see how much they love each other.    We were literally ALL over the Mission grounds and all three were so sweet and funny.  Here are just a few of my favorite images of the day!
