Champaign Brunch Cruse

Thanks to Groupon and Hornblower Cruises, my boyfriend and I were able to enjoy our 7 year anniversary on a beautiful boat on the bay, mimosas flowing. I wanted to fully enjoy the day, soak in the views and more importantly the company, so I didn’t bring my camera on this little adventure. However that didn’t mean I stopped myself from snapping a few shots with my phone.
It was Opening Day on the Bay so there were tons of boats sailing the waters. I highly recommend this cruise. Living in San Francisco you never get to fully appreciate the beautiful city that you live in. Seeing San Francisco from the water is one of the best ways to view the city.

Taking Care of Business

I have an exciting project ahead of me! My friend Serena owns a salon in the Sunset called TCB Salon (TCB as in Taking Care of Business). It’s a cute, perfectly pink salon named in honor of Elvis and his motto "Taking Care of Business". Serena has kindly offered her wall space to feature my photos! I am beyond thrilled that she has given me this opportunity and I began to compile a photo set together. I’ve taken a LOT of photos of tress, grass, leaves and things in nature so I decided I would go with a nature focused set, at least for now. My inspiration came from this photo…

My idea is to center this photo, as if the woman pictured is gazing at all the images around her. She’s peaking though the rusty door looking at all the things nature has to offer. Then, I would proceed to hang some of the following images around this central photo…


When it all comes together I think it’s going to look fabulous! The great thing is that in a month ot two I can switch the photos up with another themed project. It’s going to be fun playing around new themes and really getting focused on a project. I’m looking forward to giving the salon a little touch of my photography.
If you or anyone you know is looking for a new hair stylist, Serena is your girl, she takes care of business! If you want to contact her for a cut and/or color the Salon number is (415) 684-0308. Serena does amazing work and I wouldn’t trust my hair with anyone but her.

My Apologies

Wow, has it really been over two weeks since I last posted? I guess sometimes life just grabs you by the horns and runs away with you, quickly. I guess I've also just been lazy.
My last few weeks have been hectic to say the least. My boyfriend and I were pretty much forced to find a new place to live in a short period of time. There was apartment searching and planning followed by a bunch of packing and unpacking. This also came in the middle of a long planned vacation to Vegas with my sister and our friend Stephanie. It has been a busy few weeks, but I’m back! And I have a few things to catch up with.
I have a few projects planning for the new apartment and lots of photos to edit from Vegas and from Ceci’s Photo booth session.  There is also a exciting Salon project in the works! I’ll keep posted. I apologies for the hiatus, but I’m back :)
In the spirit of leaving my laziness behind me, here is an ode to the lazy.
