A few weeks ago, I went out with my friend Leanne of Sargeant Creative so that she could shoot some double exposure shots on her wonderful Fujix100s. I did not know at the time that my own Canon 5d Mark iii has that same feature until she told me. I finally had some personal reflection time today and took my camera out to test this feature. I looked for pink hues in the flowersbecause I wanted to have a Japanese influence in these photos. I’m so happy with how the first batch came out. doubleexposure04   doubleexposure05   doubleexposure01   doubleexposure03

Leanne of Sargeant Creative wanted to experiment with some double exposure photography on her new Fujix100s. When she called me to spend the day with her, I jumped on the chance to learn about this project she was working on for the Violet Hour’s Art Show. She shot everything on manual settings, and these are straight out of the camera frames, no photoshop at all.   I learned all kinds of fun tricks and I can’t wait to experiment with this feature on the Canon 5d Mark iii as well!

I’ve known Sarah since we were 13 years old. Amazing how we’ve all grown into beautiful women, making our own families, and producing the next generation! Sarah is keeping the sex of her baby unknown until she gives birth…or until she can’t hold it in any longer and spills the beans! Her beautiful friends Leah [whom I’ve also known since I was 13 years old], Amy, Leigh, and Suzette threw her a wonderful baby shower at this cute estate in Orange. I loved photographing the whole event, and at the end, the chickens were let out of their roost to run around too!

I’m in love with these white shoes right now. I found them at Nordstrom Rack, and have gotten a million compliments on them. Love that it goes with pretty much everything, including my work outfits.

I photographed Vy last year at both her homecoming and her prom. How fast time flies, as she’s graduating high school in 2 weeks! We did a quick senior portrait session in Costa Mesa, and then I got treated to a nice meal at Taco Asylum. Thanks sweet girl.

Samar and Jenan are incredibly small powerhouses who just starting doing this. I’ll have to get them back together to do more of this photography…and not at 3 am.
