Friday Five

1  //  Less than nine weeks until Baby T is due to make his or her arrival.  It's gone by so fast!

2  //  One month until I'm "officially" on maternity leave.  I use the term "officially" loosely here because, seeing as how it's my business and there's no actual leaving the office, it'll be pretty difficult for me to step away completely.  But I sure will try...

3  //  There are four weddings, three engagement sessions, and one commercial session on my calendar that need to be shot and/or edited between now and the beginning of said maternity leave.  It's going to be a busy month!

4  //  Add to that the fact that we're moving very soon (not far, just to a larger apartment in our building) and I'm beginning to understand why I've had some pretty vivid anxiety nightmares lately.

5  //  But it's Friday, and Fridays are the best day of the week, so I'll end this on a positive note with five photos from Bri & Kam's sweet engagement session for your enjoyment!  I'm shooting their Capitola wedding tomorrow and can't wait to witness these two promise forever to each other in front of all their loved ones.  We had so much fun together at their engagement session, I just know the wedding day will be a blast, too!

Friday Five & Some Instagram Fun

1  //  I love flowers and I love Instagram so, while browsing the Trader Joe's flower section, I got the brilliant idea to have a little fun with those loves and create an Instagram challenge for all of us!  And I've made it as easy as ABC:

A. Share a photo of flowers
B. On Fridays
C. with the hashtag #TSFridayFlowers.

The "TS" is for Twentieth Street, so I can be sure to find you!  No other themes or daily/weekly prompts to follow, and the whole "flowers" thing is totally open for interpretation.  Real flowers, fake flowers, sketches of flowers, floral prints - whatever you like!  Just share some pretty blooms on Friday to welcome the weekend and help make all our Insta-feeds a little bit brighter.  I'll be highlighting a few of your photos each week so be sure to include the hashtag if you'd like to see yours featured here!

2  //  And speaking of features with beautiful flowers, Emily & Ralph's gorgeous fall wedding is being featured on Style Me Pretty today!  Fun fact: I found out I was pregnant the week of their wedding and spent the entire five days leading up to it puking multiple times a day.  Yippee!  Needless to say, I was really happy to have all the prettiness of their special day to distract me from the never-ending nausea. :)

3  //  My mother-in-law and sisters-in-law hosted a co-ed baby shower for us over the weekend.  The dudes drank beer and watched "the game" (whatever game was on that day...) while the ladies ate gluten-free cupcakes and chatted about baby stuff (and work stuff and life stuff, too).  It was really great to spend some time with family and friends -possibly our last opportunity to do so while childless- and see so many people excited to meet Baby T in June.

4  //  It was a full-on family weekend with Easter being the day after the shower.  The Nieces hunted for Easter eggs, The Husband drank some booze after 40 days without it, and I ate enough sugar and chocolate to make up for all I missed during the entire Lenten period.  It was divine.

5  //  Juno is fitting in nicely to our family life and getting along really well with Gia.  The vet discovered a mild case of ringworm when we took her in for an exam so she's currently being quarantined until her round of anti-fungal medication is over (btw, I thought it was an actual worm/parasite, turns out it's just a fungal infection).  Since we don't want Gia to catch it, too, we haven't been allowing them direct contact with each other, but Gia still stops by her cage everyday to check in on her new little sis and give her some guinea pig kisses.  And Juno is getting comfortable exploring some very limited areas of the apartment all by herself.

Sneak Peek | Amber & Bobby's Coastal Vow Renewal

I just delivered Amber & Bobby's photos from their vow renewal on the California Coast and couldn't wait to share a little glimpse with you.  It was so sweet, so personal, and so intimate, and I'm honored they asked me to be a part of it.  Can't wait to share more with you soon!

Jordana Paige's Cora in Lavender

Back in January, I shared some photos with you from a shoot I did for Jordana Paige, but I kept a little secret from you.  There was one handbag, one series of shots, missing from that post.  I'd been sworn to secrecy until its release but I'm happy to say the latest version of the Cora bag is finally here - in lovely lavender, perfect for spring!

I'm super excited to share these with you because, not only is Cora one of my personal fave's of Jordana Paige's handbags (it's the one with the front pocket that unzips and becomes a clutch - two bags in one!), but the lavender version is also my favorite color.  It was a lot of fun shooting these photos knowing they were top secret and wouldn't be released for a few months, too.  We got super lucky finding a neighborhood market that just happened to have tulips, a signature of spring, on display out front.  I felt a little bad for our model, Loni, though.  We happened to do this portion of the shoot late in the afternoon on a super warm September day - it was easily in the 80s, which is crazy warm for San Francisco - and she had to walk around in a trench coat "pretending" it was a cool April spring day!  She definitely made it work, though.  So much so that a few high school boys stopped and stood on the corner to watch for a bit before one of them asked me, "Is she a model?  She's really pretty!"
