foto friday | spring awakening

This photo screams Spring and boy am I ready!

Spring is around the corner and I'm beginning to see it in little things here and there. I love the first blooms of Spring, they're beautiful. Don't be shocked if you see me, camera in hand, tromping through fields of wildflowers soon. It might happen often, you'll see.

What's better than a red velvet & cream cheese frosting cupcake? Uh, a giant sized red velvet cupcake with cream cheese frosting AND filling.

Two amazing friends dropped off this massive piece of heaven to celebrate my half birthday! Doesn't get much sweeter than that!

Except maybe this...

I couldn't resist posting another...could you?

This past Monday I shot a Valentines [not engagement] session with Nicole & Tyler and I can't get over how beautiful they are together.

Seriously?! How spicy is this photo!?

More [much more] hotness soon.


foto friday | love version 6.0

It's a four day weekend and Valentines day is around the corner. I'm not the type of girl who needs flowers, candy, jewelry or an amazingly extravagant night [though I am a sucker for candy]...as long as I get to spend the day with the one I love, I don't care what we do.

This will be our sixth Valentines together [and only our 2nd married v-day], and we're sticking to our tradition of dinner & a movie. For the past six years, we've enjoyed a delicious dinner at Frasinetti's Winery and our movie pick this year...probably the Book of Eli. What are your plans?!

ps-how could I forget...sometime this weekend I'll be making s'more brownies...don't they look delicious? Not gonna lie, I'm making them more for my sake than for Eddie. Mmm...marshmallows

Happy Valentines day!

It's that time of the week again, so without further ado - our San Fran getaway!

*side note: the man who took this photo tried about 6 different positions before finally snapping the pic. I'm a little surprised our faces don't show our suppressed laughter from the awkward moment.

This was supposed to be a weekend without any photo ops [I really tried...I even left my Canon at home], but my little point & shoot found it's way out of my pocket a few times.

And of course, we did our usual eat/drink/treat at the same spots and saw the Cold War Kids play at the Fillmore.

I love weekend getaways, and that's all I have left to say.
