Everyday I have this little conversation with myself, “Self, today you must blog”…. and then the phone rings, or someone needs a ride, or I book a last minute session and the day is completely gone.  Do you ever feel like the “todo” list never ends?  Well, I can’t promise a daily blog post with summer in full swing and the weather being perfectly gorgeous for family sessions, but I can promise to keep in touch with my Blue Sky’s family on a more regular basis.  Having said all that, many of you may know that we just launched our new wedding blog, www.blissbyblueskys.com/blog.  I would really, truely love and appreciate it if you would all go make a little visit and just say hello, or better yet give us some feedback on our engagement and wedding photography.

Now, finally, the Wood Family!  Wow, I think I am in love!  Seriously, they are not only beautiful on the outside, but that have this amazing chemistry and love that just makes you want to become an honorary member of the Wood Team!  Little did I know when they contacted me to book a session, that Sara is also an accomplished children’s photographer in the Bay Area.  She has definitely trained her kids well in front of the camera as they are naturals.  I did not want the session to end.  To Sara, thank you for trusting me with your fabulous family!  Enjoy!

We had so much fun shooting Miss Houlas for this retro-vintage shoot!  The orange trees, the “LOVE” letters, the vintage muscle car…..it was just perfect. A big thank you to Rashae Taylor from Fansea Finds for styling this fantastic shoot! I’m going to let the pictures do the talking on this one! Enjoy!

Sometimes, out of a bad situation comes something fabulous!  That was definitely the case with Ro and Joe.  This fantastic couple had the unfortunate experience of hiring a photographer who disappeared once he received a payment…total bad situation.  My gal Berit from Makeup by Berit, came to the rescue by suggesting the couple contact Blue Sky’s Studio to see if we had the date open.  As look would have it, we did and that led to us getting the opportunity to photograph them (yeah!)….fabulous!  The rest is beautiful history.  

We were lucky enough to shoot their wedding at Franciscan Gardens in San Juan Capistrano (our home away from home).   AND the icing on the cake was that we staged a First Glance at the Mission in San Juan, one of my favorites spots in the whole world….so all of the fabulous wedding portraits were complete before the ceremony…. which gave Ro and Joe lots of time to enjoy partying with their close friends and family.  Enjoy the images from the day and a BIG THANK YOU to BERIT!!!!!
