••• Random Friday – Kelly Moore Bag! •••

One of my very favorite photographers, Kelly Moore, is having a grand opening for her new camera bag, the Kelly Moore Bag.  I’ve been waiting for a long time for this to launch, and I think they look amazing.  I really want to get one…just need to pick a color first!  It looks like it could also be a really cool diaper bag or organized purse.  I’m such a mom. lol

You can pre-order one now! And, if you use the promo-code: bloglove by Christmas day you’ll get $50 off!

Also, on a more personal random note, here is my kitten, Sphaaretel, in our Christmas tree (iPhone pic).  Isn’t she cute??  To update my Facebook friends…she ended up knocking over our tree, breaking most of our new glass ornaments, and cracking the base of the tree.  Ugh.  Our tree is now supported by one of my old history books.  The funny part, though, was when Spencer took away one of her toys as punishment.  He was NOT happy!

I wasn’t really on Facebook too much over the holidays so I didn’t know this happened! Bad kitty! And what do you mean that when Spencer took away her toy HE was not happy? Did you mean SHE was not happy? Or did Sphaaretel do something to Spencer to make him regret taking her toy? Did Lono go in the tree too? Or is he too mellow to cause problems?

When we do get a tree next year I’m afraid Doc will pee on it! LOL!

No Lisa, it was ME that wasn’t happy, and I, for some misguided reason, thought that cats could be disciplined. So I took her favorite toy away, and gave her a long lecture on the standards of behavior we expect in our house. Later she tried to kill me in my sleep, and broke every dish in the house. Don’t discipline cats.

LOL- Sphaaretel is a very naughty kitty! She broke every dish in the house and tried to kill you in your sleep?! I’ve heard of cats smothering babies before so I guess they can do it to adult men as well! But how did she break every dish? That must have startled you all awake! Cats are pretty entertaining when they aren’t sleeping.

••• Cannon Beach wedding photographer – Erica & Tim •••

Erica & Tim were married this summer at Haystack Gardens in Cannon Beach.  Actually, they were supposed to be married ON the beach, but the weather was pretty crummy.  So, they decided to have it outside at the Haystack Gardens, but then it started to rain.  They ended up moving it inside, but it was still beautiful and very emotional.  I loved being apart of this wedding.  Everyone was so warm, and Erica & Tim were just the sweetest couple (not to mention beautiful!! lol).  Erica loves the fine art images, which was awesome, so I used a lot of textures and actions on these.

I have to take Calvin to pre-school now, but I’d like to come back and talk a little about beach weddings. Just give some tips and ideas.

Tim surprised her by replacing her original stone with a new one, and she had no idea.  Also, that is Erica’s mom officiating the ceremony. :)

Luckily, the rain disappeared after the ceremony, so we could at least get some pictures on the beach.  It was really cold, but they had great attitudes (all day, in fact).

The cake cutting starts out innocent enough…
