Last week, Big City Moms held their second annual Biggest Baby Shower here in LA. For those of you who haven’t heard of Big City Moms, it was started by New York moms Risa Goldberg and Leslie Venokur as a social group featuring events and other resources for, of course, moms. After bringing the Biggest Baby Shower to LA last year, they realized that it’s a market that’s definitely clamoring for this type of event. And for those of you who missed the event last week, don’t worry – they’ll be in SF next month!
Yes, I’m currently in Las Vegas. It’s not my favorite place, but I’m here for the WPPI conference. Which I want to talk about, but first, I really want to talk about my meal at a local Japanese restaurant called Raku. I know, there are many photography-related things for me to get excited about while I’m here, but I had such a satisfying meal that I kind of feel compelled to talk about it. It’s embarrassing, but I was one of those people taking photos of each dish that came out – you might find me on that blog Pictures of Asians Taking Pictures of Food. At least I was just using my iPhone (of course I have done this with my 5D and 24-70 lens and mortified everyone I was eating with).
It’s hard to think that this little one has only been a part of our lives for a year now – and how quickly that year has flown by! My niece has become one of my favorite subjects – it’s kind of ridiculous how many albums I have of her – so I couldn’t resist sharing some of her holiday photos here. Of course, I had to get some photos of her in her holiday dress.
I’m so honored to be able to blog about my portrait session with the S family for my 100th post! We set up a newborn session for the newest member of the S family after he decided to arrive about a month early and thwarted our plans for a maternity session. I guess the little guy was just too eager to get in front of my camera!
Ask Oliver how old he is and he’ll show you three fingers. He’ll even count them up for you if you ask. It’s incredible to me that I’ve been documenting this sweet little boy for almost three years now. And in the tradition we started when Oliver turned one, we made a quick stop at a nearby church where we snapped Oliver at the three marker.
