Jackson in Los Gatos

Friday, September 23rd, 2011

My good friend Deb was in town from Chicago a couple of weeks ago. She wanted me to take photos of her son, Jackson. But he was so not into getting his picture taken. A 6-year old boy — that’s normal! He wasn’t falling for any of my tricks so it was a short and sweet session. But we got some good ones. And we definitely got a lot of different expressions!

Have Gwen Stefani style your kid!!!

Friday, July 22nd, 2011

For each shoot we always get asked similar questions the main one being, “what should I dress my kid in?”  This question is hard to answer because a lot of times really cute boutiquey places are soooooo pricey.  There are a few, fun and cheap clothing designers for kids, but for the most part we are paying way too much.

So just when I thought I could not get more excited about cheap kids clothing then Amy Coe I hear that Gwen Stefani is designing a line for Target coming out this fall!! Yay. I love her L.A.M.B. line and think her kids are always dressed super cool.  The line starts at $3.99 and caps out at only $29.99.  Plus, for the first time, she will be designing for the guys.  With a two year old boy and another boy on the way I am super stoked.  I find boy clothes are ok, but definitely not as fun as girl clothes. Thank god I have a ton of nieces to get my girl clothing fix on.  Maybe this new line will turn me on a little bit more.   Look for in Target stores November 2011!!!

I (well, actually Chris!) recently discovered Shannon Sewell on [FRAMED] — if you haven’t checked it out, you should!: Ok, so I LOVE her and find out she’s coming to Santa Cruz for a workshop. I signed up… and a Friday or so ago spent an amazing day with her and 10 other talented women at the Bonny Doon Winery. It was a glorious day and so FUN and I learned a TON! Here is a shot of Shannon in action and one of the adorable models. And below that, a few pics of my friend Annemarie and her two kiddos using a new lens and a few new Photoshop actions ( — THANK YOU SHANNON for sharing so much with us all! ~Debbie
