2013.10 Paige’s Maternity

Ahhhhhhhh!  That’s all I have to say about this.’. EXCITED!  The beauty that you see below is my sister.  My very pregnant sister, who is due to have my nephew in the next week or 2.  Paige and Coleman are bring the first grandchild on BOTH sides of the family.  So, needless to say, this boy will be loved.

Paige’s baby shower was at the end of October.  After the party I convinced her to sneak out of the house for a few quick minutes to take some maternity pictures.  So away we went.  And Kaitlin came to hang out for some sister time.  🙂

Downtown Clovis is just a few short minutes from their place, and that’s where Paige suggested we go.  And I’m glad we did.  Look how gorgeous these huge wooden doors are.  Thank you fireman for letting us use your doors for pictures!

There are brick walls everywhere!  The texture is just so cool.  Isn’t Paige just glowing?!?!

Please tell me the bow looks like a bow tie…  The shower theme was little man, and the clip on bow ties were part of a game and favor.  I had one in my hair and said, here use it!  I’m hoping the green is making it more “manly”.

Eden turns 1!

Over the summer I was contacted by a high school classmate and friend of mine asking if I could take her daughter’s 1 year pictures.  Of course I said yes!  Taking pictures from classmates is always a good time to catch up and see their cute kiddos.  And let me tell you, Eden is a cutie!

We started off by taking some pictures of the 3 of them.  The family.  Then I took some of just Eden alone.  Wait until you see how cute she is in her little outfit…

Eden the ladybug!  And when she crawls, she’s quick!

Eden is a fall baby.  And we were at a local pumpkin patch.  So duh, pumpkins were involved!

Taco Tuesday

Back sometime ago, during the summer, when all the interns were still around… (blogger post timing fail) My parents invited all the interns to join them on a short 20 minute “sail” from the Stockton Sail Club to Windmill Cove for Taco Tuesday.  Including my parents, Kaitlin, and myself there were about 15 people on the boat.  A little loaded, but well worth it.

Taco Tuesday is at a restaurant in the Stockton Delta, where every Tuesday (duh!) it’s all you can eat tacos or $7 or $8 bucks.  And for being cheap, they’re pretty good!


Gabe and Austin dancing…


The sunset…


The interns and hosts…


More setting sun…


And the sister.


A good time was had by all.  This year was such a good year with the interns and I’m grateful that I got to know many of them, and can now call them friends.

Go Giants!

The weekend after 4th of July I was invited to go to a SF Giants game.  And of course I said yes!  They played the Dodgers, and unfortunately the Giants lost.  But it was still a fun game nonetheless.

See the aisle behind home plate?  Ad see that little black box area that’s part of the aisle?  Yea… That’s where I was sitting… 🙂

Mom, Dad, and Uncle Brad were out in the bleachers (sorry guys!), so we walked out there to say hello.

D Family

This family.  Let me tell you, they are near and dear to my heart.  I can go a year without seeing them, but when I do it’s so easy to catch up.  I was honored when Dorothy contacted me to take their family portraits.  Including the newest addition, little Billie Ann.
