all-day photo shoot

jewelry, photography, san luis obispo By October 25, 2011 20 Comments

yesterday, part of our team spent the day at flying caballos–a beautiful property near our workshop. we took lots and lots of pictures.

we’re about to launch a new, improved website. it’s going to be so beautiful!

the place is so beautiful, it feels like you’re miles from anywhere.

we refueled by chowing down on chipotle. i love their barbacoa tacos. and that handsome guy there {my husband} did you know he’s the business brain behind lisa leonard designs? yeah, he’s amazing.

actually our whole team–managers, production team, customer service are incredible. and fun.

i can’t wait to tell you more! soon, i promise!!

are you signed up for our newsletter? we are about to introduce some of our holiday line! sign up here.

max & gracie {capturing the everyday}

an everyday moment, inspiration, photography By September 23, 2011 12 Comments

the other day my sweet friend, jen, asked me to shoot some pics of her kiddos. our kids play together a lot and so we just kept it simple and met right near our house.

the kids were just out of school, a little tired and probably a little grumpy. so we just relaxed, told some knock knock jokes and started to play a bit.

they cheered up and i was able to capture their sweet faces {and their sweet smiles}

right now these pics are just simple, every day moments. but some day they’ll look back at these pictures and remember being little, being together and being silly.

i brought that pretty necklace for gracie to wear–and she loved it. her face lit up.

there are no pics of it–but i had max showing me some lightsaber tricks with a big stick we found. it really helped him to relax.

have you used your camera to capture some everyday moments lately?
