surprise surprise

for a month and a half i kept a fun secret.
i was planning to surprise my little bro and sis for their 16th birthday with a visit.
finally that day came...
i sent this picture to their phones and told them i wanted to give them some balloons on their birthday... hoping they would see i was at their school.
they sure did, and we're so excited!
i think amy's exact words were "no way!!! where are you?? i think i just started crying! ahh i'm freaking out!!!!! i have to pee!"
haha :)
it was such a fun reunion, and some tears may have been involved.
i've missed my family so much. and i am excited i will be in utah for the next 3 weeks!

week 7: bokeh hearts

i have such a love for bokeh.
bokeh is the out-of-focus points of light in an image.
since it was valentines this week i decided to play around in photoshop to give my images bokeh hearts. i had a joy making these images.

happy valentines day!

my day started off with flowers from a "secret admirer"

and ended with a homemade pizookie & a chick flick with the roomie.
a pretty good day to me!

week 6: an open window

i started taking random photos early in the week and when i looked through them, these first two stood out to me. one of a window, one shot though a window. so i decided my theme this week was going to be anything shot through, of, or had a window. fun fun.


Picture 21
i'm not one for pet photography... but i sure loved this.



a little valentines love.

my editing goal this week was to give these photos a film look. so i made these pictures super grainy, didn't sharpen them, didn't add contrast, and dulled the colors down. love the turn out!

week 5: musicians by the bay

sometimes you have to let the project come to you.
i was walking around the boardwalk in laguna with a friend snapping random photos.
i took a few of a kid singing and playing the guitar, and his friend came running after me and asked if i could email some of the photos i took.
i went back and took more...






i also met this sweet girl who was rockin it on the piano.






i wasn't planning on this being my shoot of the week, but it happened.
and so happy it did.
