Styled Photo Shoot

So we have something supa fun for you today.  You might have noticed around our new design there are a few pictures of Christie and me.   With Christie coming on board, I couldn’t very well have every picture be of my and my husband.  My husband actually hates being on the blog at all. In fact, he has asked me numerous times to remove his picture because when you googled his name a picture from my blog  came up.  Like on the 6th page.  My response?  I love you baby, but really?  Who googles you?

Anyway, Christie and I decided we needed some new pictures.  And of course, what a better way to get new pictures than to do a photo shoot?  Back in March when I had my surprise trip home to California, it was the perfect time to set something up.  I was there two and a half weeks and guess what?  We busted out two shoots!  At this post we are going to share our top picks of the shoot of us together.  The picks you see around the blog now.  You can head over to our Facebook page to see the full album.  Then you can come back later for round two of a previous shoot we did, one of which Christie and her husband were the models!

We shot these in the lovely Simi Valley at our beautiful little civic center.  It fit perfectly for what we were looking for without having to travel to downtown LA.  Gotta love the palm tree popping out of the back and the twigs in the background!  Lizzie from S’wonderful Photography captured everything beautifully and we had fun getting all glammed up with the very talented Anna Berglund!

I think this one is hilarious.  To start off, Christie and I are above average height wise.  Well, she is closer to normal, I’m just not.  But our husbands are huge, so we can feel normal in our day to day lives.  Then my mom found these hot red shoes and had to buy them for me because they were only $10.  Um… yes please!  Except for that now I am a good 6’6″.  The hubs says he likes it, so I am just gonna go with it!  I have yet to wear them out yet… so we’ll see.  But don’t I look like gigantor woman?  I’m almost as tall as the door!

Well, we had fun with it!  These are just three of the ones that made the final cut, but to see the whole album, you’d have to check out our Facebook Page!  And if you are looking for a photographer in the LA area, give S’wonderfull Photography a call.  She is marvelous!  Our time management wasn’t the greatest that day and we were loosing light, but without a hiccup, Lizzie swept in and took the lead and made things happen!  We couldn’t have been happier with the outcome!

Stay tuned for another awesome giveaway and another beautiful photo shoot featured later today!

      Thank you!! You know what, ALyx, I totally would – I forgot them in America! For some reason I would be more comfortable doing it here than America, but I will probably bust them out a time or two!

    Beautiful as always, ladies 🙂 Can’t believe you did this in Simi… I grew up there, and would have never thought to use that location, but what a great idea! 🙂

      I know! We almost went down to Hollywood when Natalia thought of the Simi cultural arts center and it works perfectly. I would have never thought 🙂
