It's that time of year again. The OC fair!

Oh man I can't believe it has been another year. This year I entered 3 pictures into the OC fair photography contest and had 2 rejected but 1 made it in. Little did I know that would be all it took. This year I placed 1st in the professional color / black and white misc. category.

This was a picture that I felt inspired to take one day after coming home from a meeting. Some days I feel the beauty of the earth so strong and feel that I have to capture it for all to see.

So after I found out that I placed 1st I rounded up the monkeys and we went to the fair to celebrate.

Oh Maya I love how you embrace the camera. One day you will be a super star!

I guess the boys are getting to old and big to hold anymore. Oh so sad. Oh May May where did the days go?
I think this hot dog is bigger then her head. What do you think?
Got to see the racing pigs. Oh how the kids loved it.

Keep working Baby O! I love how her whole body goes into eating this.

Remember when we thought these were the coolest rides EVER.

SO much fun with the monkeys, can't wait for next year.

Baby by Stevie

The other day I did a shoot for an old friend who is the owner of Baby by Stevie. Baby by Stevie is an Etsy shop that sells handmade ties (traditional and bow ties) for your little ones.
Her little ties are to die for. So if you have a need or even a want for little baby ties give Baby by Stevie a look.

Happy 4th of July!

Every year I wait and wait for the 4th of July. I think since moving to the island it has become one of my favorite holidays. The people flock to the island like it is the birthplace of the country. So many people to see!

This year I set out a bit late but was able to get several shots that I feel really represent the 4th island style. I think this years theme was lemonade stands and stands of all kinds run by kids.

People waiting for the ferry. I can't believe how bad this is. So happy I didn't need a ride.

I think this was the cutest thing I saw all day. In his had is a cup that says For the Troops.

Couldn't get enough of these umbrella's.

Even the dogs got into spirit.

Normally this beach just has a few. But not today.

Love that kids are learning to think beyond themselves.

These kids look like they are doing pretty good if you ask me.

A little spin on the lemonade stand.

Bonus points for using the computer.
