so the one thing you never want to happen as a photographer, happened….

as I was getting my gear situated, I had it on the passenger seat, I hopped out of the car to just get it out on that side..

in the meantime, somehow, my car locked itself…. & I  was completely locked out of the car, gearless!!

ahhh! miraculously, an angel, Carli Ray, who I haven’t seen in ages, walked out of a shop, & she took me home quick to get the spare key….

Thank you, Carli! You saved the day!!!! Oh man!!!!

& Jules, so patient!!!!! Thank you!!!!

Jules!!! Our shoot ended up really being a mini-session with the lock out ordeal, but so much fun we had…..

She is an incredible singer/actress. I saw her perform for the first time last year at Shasta’s Beauty & the Beast, so amazing!!

I was in awe! So excited for this year’s!! & she’s apart of Shasta’s Madrigal Dinner!! Cannot wait!!!! So incredibly talented!!!

Jules! You are so beautiful! Thank you for having me capture you!!!!!!

.favorite thing #4. {redding, ca family photographer}

Happy Favorite Day #4! Whoo Hoo! I’m doing it!!!! LOL!

My cousin Paul, who is another favorite, featured on today’s blog post, actually turned me on to favorite thing #4!!

I picked mine up at Coscto… Two of them for about $35.00. Literally nothing sticks & you don’t even need to use butter!!!

Super easy for the kids to use as well! They are learning to cook & things not sticking makes it very successful!!!

The only con, is the one’s I picked up at Costco, don’t have a lid, but for stir-fry, eggs, etc… They are the best!!!!

Favorite Thing #4 : The Green Pan 

greenpan Another one of my favorites is my awesome cousin Paul, & his beautiful family!!!! AHH!

We did more of a mini-session because of the rain, but couldn’t be more happy with how the pics turned out!!!!

Love you guys!!!! Your family is absolutely gorgeous & super fun to photograph!!!!!!
