Our day in LA + 500 Days of Summer Tour

Even though David + I have lived in southern california our entire lives, we've never explored LA together. We decided to have a day in LA with our good friends Greg + Cori. We started out with lunch at Philippe's. Yummy french dips!

Olvera Street.

Riding a tram up to see the park from 500 Days of Summer.

THE bench they sat on in the movie. 

The building he goes to at the end of the movie for his interview. It's awesome!

Pershing Square.

We ate a yummy lunch, then 3 desserts, then made dinner at home + enjoyed treats and Fantastic Mr. Fox. Here we are at a fun macaron place.

Thanks for the awesome day in the city, Shaws!

I have a few friends that I really clicked with right after moving to Utah, and Kristine was one of them. Our opinions about most things are very similar :) We love cooking + food, blogs, + babies. Working together allowed me to experience her pregnancy closely which sometimes even made me feel like I was the one who was pregnant! When she had insomnia, I had insomnia. Yeah, I'm weird. Her baby boy arrived on his due date like a good little boy. 

I visited the new little family in the hospital a few hours after baby boy was born to capture the fresh newness. A week later we did a photoshoot at home. He was a good little model!

OC + the zoo

We went on a few trips last week- Orange County and the San Diego Wild Animal Park.

We visited my favorite antique store, Country Roads at the Orange Circle.

Met Brian for lunch at Jalepenos.

Saturday we went and stayed at Brian + Moonsungs and ate the yummiest Peruvian food. 
Here's Campbell in the car.

@ the wild animal park. I don't like having my picure taken by myself.

But I don't mind it if there's a baby in it, too.

Fun Stuff

We've been soaking up all the time we can with our family + nieces before David starts school and I apparently won't see him ever again (according to every single person we met on his tour of campus). 

Moonsung threw Chelsea a sweet baby shower at a yummy restaurant in Pasadena and Lilah sat by me :) My nieces give me hope for someday having chill children.

After we spent the rest of the day with Brian and Moonsung in Dana Point.

Later in the week we took some of our stuff up to a storage unit David's parents have in Crestline.

And visited a really cool house that we were always checking out when we lived up there that is STILL not finished being built!

Monday we made homemade empanadas for FHE in the park.

Saturday we went to the San Diego wild animal park.
Look at that face!

My gorgeous friend Kari had her baby girl at the very end of June and I'm so excited for her. We snuck in a little maternity session while I was down back in May and I did a few shots of her at about a week old. Kari is awesome- she has amazing style (I want everything in her house) and now she has an awesome baby to complete her family.

Kari made all of the crib bedding- it's amazing.

Fenns. It's never-ending.

When I married into the Fenn family, I gained a LOT of cousins. I hope my future kids get to be as close with their cousins as he is with his because I really didn't get that opportunity of having family super close by.

I love getting a shot of just 'parents' together without kids. I think the chance to show their fun side sans kids is so important to never lose.

I love his eyelashes.
