I hope these past 12 months have been fun for you getting to know me and my family a little bit more. December for us is about the holidays. When I grew up, we didn’t celebrate Christmas. Living in a communist country, in a family and friends that didn’t embrace religion, for us it was about celebrating New Years. There was still a jolly Santa figure (although his name was loosely translated as Grandpa Frost) that delivered gifts to the wee bits of the land. In our family today, although we still aren’t practicing in any religion, we do celebrate Christmas.I’ve been on a mission NOT to lie to my kids about Santa Claus. I can go on about this[…]See more from “Bay Area Photographer: December In My Corner of the World”

When our oldest turned three we celebrated with a family trip to Disneyland. Well, the month of November greets us with a birthday for a little dude, who this year is now three as well. So guess where we went? And guess what pictures Iā€™m sharing with you of my November? Yep ā€“ house of mouse šŸ™‚ I look back on our trip in a much different light than actually being there. A bit like being in labor I suppose. It felt a lot more fun in retrospect. But boy was it memorable. What made it memorable you say? Lesse: 1) my husband brought an unwanted guest on our trip: the stomach flu. He fell to the germ our first[…]See more from “Bay Area Photographer: November In My Corner of the World”

C’mon, it’s October. Can you possibly be surprised that my post this month will be about pumpkins? Of course not! In all honesty, this month has been an amazing month. There’s been a bit of change for us, on a personal front with me starting a new job, but I took two me-cation weeks and it was incredible! I spent days alone, reconnecting with… well… me, doing activities I’ve wanted to for years, and even doing some of those pesky chores around the house you want some peace and quiet for. I feel accomplished, and exercises, and enriched. Did I take photos of those events? Eh — not really, but trust me. It was remarkable, and if I can pull[…]See more from “Bay Area Photographer: October In My Corner of the World”

Wanna know what my week-end mornings look like when I’m not hanging out with you guys? I take walks… with Spiderman. On a good day, we’re out for an hour and walk about 3 miles together, around the water’s edge. It’s not a bad view, and this little dude gives me a Woot sticker to keep me motivated. There is something you should know about Spiderman, too. He’s addicted to Noah’s Bagels’ Bagel Poppers. He spends half our walk devouring them and the other half watching Elmo or Caillou on the Kindle. I, in turn, get to catch up with some podcasts, a call with my mom, or some photography videos. I finally finished my Bambi Cantrell Master Posing class[…]See more from “Bay Area Photographer: September In My Corner of the World”

Sssh! Don’t tell my boys, but around our house they think that popcorn is a special treat, and watching TV while eating popcorn is an exclusive event. No, we’re not tyrants with the snacks, but cleaning popcorn in between couch cushions isn’t that thrilling, so there you have it.The boys settled in for some nightly after-dinner Netflix,and I snapped away. More ‘little moments’ around our home.
