It was 1992. Scrunci's were in our hair and everyone smelled like teen spirit. I met Lara on our first day of 6th grade, in math class. She was smart and pretty, and loved horses. I was confused as to why I was placed in 7th grade accelerated math (as a 6th grader), and didn't know anybody. We instantly became friends. Sleepovers consisted of watching The Land Before Time and Homeward Bound, and as we got older, Clueless and Varsity Blues. We lost touch for a few years after high school, but found each other as young adults. She was married, with a cute little house in Costa Mesa, where we would get together to play flip cup and Apples to Apples. It was amazing that our friendship could pick up as if no time had passed.

It's been close to 8 years now since we reconnected, and we both are enjoying mommyhood for the second time. Gone are the late nights bar hopping in Newport Beach, instead replaced with playdates at each other's homes. While flip cup might not be in our vocabulary right now, sippy cup sure is! I'm so happy to have a girlfriend with so much history, and that we can share these experinces together. Lara, I heart you, and your lil girl!!

The Segura Family

Happy 2010! My New Year's goal: to blog my sessions this year! It's amazing that I haven't blogged before, saying that I love to write and journal. I think the difference is I LOVE putting the pen to paper. I am obsessed with handwriting, and think there is nothing classier than a handwritten note. So typing away, while convenient because everyone can see it, seems so impersonal to me. But regardless, I am going to try and rock out some blogs to go along with my pictures! Wish me luck!

When friends contacted me to do a family session for them, I jumped at the chance. This was their FIRST official family pictures, and their youngest is almost 4years old! I was honored to take the pictures! We had fun, OK, maybe fun isn't the word the boys would use to describe it, we had an "experience" wondering through Union Station, Olvera St, and the most awesome Graffiti Alley you can imagine in Downtown LA. Thank you for playing along with me, and had we not run out of sunlight, I'm sure I would have snapped away for another few hours!
