Four and Red Balloons

Four and Red Balloons: Little B just turned four and for her birthday, her sweet aunt called me up for a portrait session.

She let me know exactly what she was going to wear and I thought it would be fun to add four red balloons to the shoot.

What a fun prop! I’m not usually big on props but it just seemed right. She was so much fun – charming and delightful.

I had never been to this park in Torrance. It was one of B’s favorite parks due to the cool “tree house” structure.

Charles Wilson Park in Torrance  located on 2200 Crenshaw Blvd. in Torrance.

There is a Farmers Market in the parking lot, a huge sports center, duck pond, lots of squirrels and shade. Great place to shoot.

I need to take my Assistants there to play this summer for sure.

We are so lucky to be surrounded by amazing parks and locations in Southern California. What is  your favorite park?

B is four and rocking the cute red shoes. Balloons to match!

Boubouffe Mediterranean Grill Photo and Review

I met Jeana in NY when I was invited by KIA to see the new Sedona.  What a blast we had.  I had never met a blogger before and her life is filled with traveling, reviewing and all sorts of interesting activities. She asked me if I would like to take photos and review my experience with Restaurant.com. I went to Boubouffee Mediterranean Grill on 2nd Street in Long Beach. It was pretty darn good. I plan on going back with my Assistants and maybe Mr. Roth.

So here are the photos I took. Food not my specialty – kids and families are (as you know) but I’m pretty proud of them.

My second review for Surf and Sunshine.com. Read it HERE!
