Baby Therapy…

This morning, I kind of was feeling like this…

But then, a little of this…

….and I suddenly felt better. I am a strong believer in baby therapy, especially if you get to borrow someone else’s baby, and then sneak away right before the smiles wear off and the nap time blues start to take over. But we got two solid hours worth of toothy grins out of 9 month old Hudson before his modeling session was declared over.

It was a good way to start a Sunday.

So hard to choose…

Meet Kiea and Colin. They got married on 6-7-8 (june, the sixth month, on the 7th day, and in the year 2008)… and everything about their love story seems to work in that amazing organic way… proving they fit together perfectly. They said their wedding was absolutely wonderful, and their only regret was there weren’t many photographs of just the two of them. They had a different photographer, who did an excellent job, but who didn’t get enough photographs of the two of them.

So they called me and we made a date. Kiea scheduled a hair and make-up appointment with a friend and then we met in the middle… which happens to be in the middle of the most beautiful countryside and a perfect backdrop. And in a matter of 2 hours, we covered just about every beautiful setting possible. Now the only problem is, how do you choose which photo to pick as your favorite… because they all are so darn cute.

It was wonderful to have so much time to play, and to play without the stress of the wedding day. I loved it and only wish I could have a photo shoot after the wedding with all my wedding couples.

OK… I said it was hard to choose a favorite… but this one wins, for me.


The Women Behind Biofuel Oasis…

Today I got to meet the women of Biofuel Oasis.

Biofuel Oasis was founded in 2003 to provide greater access to biodiesel, a renewable fuel that reduces harmful tailpipe emissions. They are a women/worker-owned & operated cooperative that values sustainability, local production, and community.

And it is a very exciting year for this group. Not only is their business in the middle of the whole alternative-energy political swirl, but they are moving to a beautiful new station in Oakland in a couple of months, and most importantly… they now have new photos by paige green photography. Wow, it’s a big year indeed.

I enjoyed my quick glimpse into the bio-diesel world of these rad women, although the priority of this trip was to take formal photos, so I didn’t get to see them in action as much as I would have liked. But I guess that just means I will have to make another trip.

If only my little Honda, Ralph, were a diesel and if I lived in the East Bay, then I would most certainly go to them for all my biodiesel needs, but unfortunately Ralph isn’t and I don’t, so the best I can do is to tell all you… so if you live in the East Bay and you have biodiesel needs then these are the women to go to.


Word of Mouth…

I was so happy to receive an email from JoAnn this summer. JoAnn is expecting her second child and she wanted pregnancy photos as well as photos of her cute family. JoAnn got my name from Maria, the mother of the 2-year old who’s birthday party I photographed in the spring, and Maria found me on the internet.

I love that I have been in business for 3 years and I have yet to make business cards… word of mouth is way better than business cards– and it saves trees too! (Although, I know I will receive grumpy comments from my loved ones who wish I had business cards so they can pass them out…. so it is only a matter of time until I give in to the little white rectangles.)

Anyway, here are my favorites so far. I took a few rolls of film too, so as usual, there will be more to come. It was such a fun photo shoot… gorgeous couple with a super happy 2 year old and big beautiful windows. It was a great way to spend a Sunday.
