QUARRESS FAMILY VACATION

February 25, 2017

Trying to coordinate 10 adult’s schedules was quite a feat.  But finally, the Quarress family vacation was happening. We rented a house on the North Shore with access to daily surfing at Pipeline. On one of the last evenings, I coerced the gang for a group photo.  Yes, this beautiful scenery was our backyard..spoiled!!!

MULTNOMAH FALLS

December 18, 2016

Although only 3 weeks since my last trip,  a weekend getaway became necessary. Destination – Multnomah Falls, Portland Oregon.  These photos barely capture its breathtaking beauty.

From here, I await a flight to my next destination… (hint) … more snow!

IRELAND SCENERY

December 13, 2016

Finally completed the editing of pictures from my visit to Ireland.  Since it was a road trip, my brother and I were able to stop along the coast and enjoy the beautiful scenery.  The adventure included  Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge and Giant’s Causeway in Northern Ireland.  Truly one of the most picturesque destinations.

 Enjoy!!!

SATURDAY AT LIDO ISLAND

November 27, 2016

Only 29 day till Christmas …….

So enjoyed today’s photoshoot with two of my favorite girls. I absolutely adore photographing them with all the spunk and sass they bring to the table. While 75% of the photos are usually silly faced, it makes it even more special when I finally get those sweet, innocent smiles, they desperately try to hide.

The location is Lido Island in Newport Beach, California. This area is filled with the cutest stores and alleys. Although, technically family holiday pictures, they still have a cute, lifestyle photoshoot feel. Hope you enjoy them as much as I do!

NYC TOURING

November 26, 2016

Enjoyed sightseeing in New York. First stop was the unique Flatiron building in Manhattan. Although interesting to look at, more important is the delicious establishment next store. EATALY!!! Known for its Italian markets and seven restaurants, I wish I could of tried them all!  The food is authentic… actually better than half of what I consumed in Italy.  My appetizer was Prosciutto con Mozzarella, with an entree of  house made potato gnocchi with tomato sauce, smoked ricotta and parsley. My mouth is watering just thinking about it.

 Next stop was Top of the Rock where we enjoyed a breathtaking 360º degree view from 70 floors up. Such beautiful clear blue skies!

Such a picturesque trip. Can’t wait to come back!!

CHRISTMAS WITH THE KELLERS

November 21, 2016

Oh!  The countdown to Christmas begins.

Looking forward to busy weekends taking family photos.  Sunday morning included the adorable Keller family.  Family photos can be difficult to capture.  With 3 kids and 2 adults, someone seems to be blinking in just about EVERY photos.  However, Christmas pictures are some of my favorites because of all the special memories they create. They are displayed on mantles and cherished for years to come.  Enjoy some from today’s session!!!!

YOSEMITE

November 15, 2016

From my blog you can discern that I love adventure…. whether it’s catching a flight for a cross country trip or somewhere closer to home.  However, my latest idea included coercing 4 friends and 2 dogs on a 6.5 hour drive to Yosemite.  (Unfortunately my passengers thought it was a 4 hour trip to the Sequoias.)  This venture started at 1 am as we all piled into my Tahoe.  The dogs thought it necessary to enjoy the view with heads out the window.  We made it to the entrance of the park around sunrise and watched the fog lift over the valley. We hiked and explored for a few hours. The dogs made friends with the tourists who asked to ‘pet the wildlife’ . With the spectacular fall colors and 55 degrees, Yosemite was absolutely gorgeous.

By late afternoon even my crazy energetic pups were exhausted.  With traffic, we arrived home in 8 hours.  Once inside, the dogs slept 16 hours.

Yosemite is one of my favorite camping locations.  Next year, I’d like to return in an RV.  The pups should be older and hopefully not interested in chasing every single squirrel!!

IRELAND

October 2, 2016

Excited to share my photos of Ireland. Well, just the favorites since I have over 1500!  My brother and I recently enjoyed our first international road trip together. We arrived in Dublin and traveled through the countryside to Killarney. If you envision Ireland to be miles upon miles of green pastures and ruins of castles, you would be correct.  Enjoy a few favorites from the first two days.
