Rolando, Sande, Sarah and Jordan – Mia Family Portraits
The best solution payday loans

Well it’s about time I did family portraits for my brother’s family and what a better time than the holidays! Rolando, Sande, Sarah and Jordan are the Santa Barbara Mias and I also have another brother and his family on the east coast in Baltimore. It means so much to me to have family so close, I don’t know what I’d do without them.

I can’t even say enough about my nieces and nephews. Rachel and Ben are on the east coast and Sarah and Jordan are close enough to take out and spoil. I love these kids more than anything!

Here are some favs!

Matina’s Senior Portraits in Santa Barbara, CA
The best solution payday loans

I had a ton of fun shooting Matina’s Ponderosa High School

The best solution payday loans
Senior Portaits for her yesterday! She’s on vacation in Santa Barbara and wanted that Southern California feel to her shots so we ran around Santa Barbara and wound up at the beach.

Only in California do you run into a regular banjo and fiddle get together and a hoola hoop get together in the same day at the same park. Every Wednesday at 5pm, a group of people get together and have a kinda blue-grass jam session. People would show up walking or on a bicycle with their instruments, meet up with good friends and then just start jammin… way cool. On the other side of the park, every Wednesday at 5pm, people would show up and have a little picnic, pull out their hoops or spin balls and would just go to town! Again, way cool.

Matina did a little bit of everything yesterday, sat with the fiddlers, hula’d with the hula hoopers, played in the playground on the swings, ran in the surf, played with dogs on the beach, skateboarded, ate pizza and ice cream and was also a rockin model!

Here are some of my favs.

Dinner with the Katsiouleris family
The best solution payday loans

The Santa Barbara Mias had dinner with the Katsiouleris family tonight. We had the most incredible Greek feast and I’m still feeling 5 months pregnant and it’s been 6 hours since I had dinner! We always have so much fun with them and tonight was no different… as my sister in law puts it, “The circus is on fire!”.

Other than the great company and the amazing feast that Vivi put together, we had Greek coffee and I had my cup read

The best solution payday loans
to me! Bob is an old soul and in his infinite wisdom, read my future to me from the markings in my cup. Crazy stuff but I have to say it was super interesting!

Here are some favs from the night of us having some fun! Aren’t Ro and Bob so cute together!!

You never know who’s watching!
The best solution payday loans

I totally forgot about this picture but when I was shooting Mike Fine yesterday, I noticed out of the corner of my eye that this adorable little girl was fascinated by us and was watching from the other side of this huge water fountain. She’s so cute and I just had to post this picture of her. She had such a curious face but the second I turned my camera at her she gave me this face! It’s like she thought… “Doh! I’m busted!”

My Skater Niece and Nephew, Sarah and Jordan
The best solution payday loans

Every once in a while, I get to keep the kids with me over night and it’s called “Camp UR”, which stands for camp uncle Ricky. I love having them over, they’re so much fun. Well, they’re really into skateboarding so here are some pics of them being goofy on their boards.

What’s so great about these kids is that they are best friends. They get along so well and never…. well I guess I shouldn’t say never, but very rarely fight. I love these kids!

Bulov Family Portraits
The best solution payday loans

I had the honor of doing a portrait session for the Bulov family this past weekend, right on Rincon Beach just south of Santa Barbara. I’ve known Mark and his wife Amanda for almost 9 years now. They moved away and just recently moved back to Santa Barbara so when he gave me a call and asked if I was available to photograph their family reunion, I said of course; I would’ve moved mountains to be available. My good friend Karen

The best solution payday loans
