day 112: Today I helped out a friend and shot with her at a wedding she was photographing. The bride was absolutely gorgeous and she had beautiful flowers as well. It made for quite lovely photos. This is one of my favorites so far.
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 110: Not only are (most of) our pepper plants still alive, but they are now starting to grow some actual real peppers… which shouldn’t be surprising but yet I’m still quite excited! Ben and I are by no means skilled gardeners so I’ll be pretty impressed if these things turn out to be edible.
day 109: I have been SO busy the last couple of days that it’s been hard to get out of the house to take a decent photo. It’s been a challenge to find things in the house to photograph (that I haven’t already shot in the last 4 months). This photo reminded me of anchorman.
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: 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.
