day 111 : play ball!

day 111: Ben’s office softball team had a game tonight. Of the 30 or so members of the team they barely scraped by with about 8 of them showing up 15 minutes late for the game. They are not organized, not well practiced, and they not surprisingly lost by a 15 point margin tonight. But it was still fun. I would have played… but I was in a dress. Next time I’ll join in.

day 107 : trash

day 107 : This afternoon I met up with some fun photographers and some very cool former brides for a “trash the dress” photo shoot. I’m not a big fan of shoots where the dress gets totally ruined to the point of being unusable (I’d rather a bride donate her dress to a great charity like brides against breast cancer) but I do think that a little dirt (or water) never hurt a dress and I had a lot of fun shooting these. Here’s one of my favorites.

day 106 : a two-photo day!

day 106: Today was too fabulous and photo-op filled to be captured in one single photo! This morning we were lucky enough to get a private behind the scenes tour of the three baby tiger cubs at the Wild Animal Park. They are 6 months old and not really “small” anymore, but they were amazing to see up close and personal. We got to watch one of the trainers feeding them. It was a very cool experience and I’m so glad we got to go!

After the morning at the WAP Allison, Mark and I ran around a couple of downtown Encinitas parking lots to take some photos. Mark is pretty hilarious when he’s acting as a portrait subject… he definitely comes up with poses on his own. This was what he came up with when I asked them to sit up against a wall.
