2 pieces of VERY good news!

GOOD NEWS #1:

Natalie Norton is coming to the mainland this summer for workshops AND photo sessions! Here are the details of her roadtrip:

Seattle

July 1: photography workshop
July 2: still available for limited sessions

Cardston Alberta:

July 5 or 6: limited sessions
July 8: limited sessions in Edmonton
July 9:  photography workshop in Edmonton

Utah (Utah and Salt Lake Counties):

July 13: workshop with me and Jonathan Canlas
July 15th: limited sessions

Orange County or San Diego CA:

July 22nd: limited sessions
July 23rd: limited sessions

My husband knows how much I love/respect/admire Natalie...and so he kept asking me if I wanted to book a session with her. Well, YES, DUH! Little did I know that he had already contacted her and booked a session for our family...and was going to keep it a secret until my birthday in two weeks. AWWW! Seriously? So cool! BUT, I ruined the surprise, slightly, because when I emailed Natalie to book a session, I also asked her if it would be OK to advertise her roadtrip on my blog...because I thought maybe some of my family and friends might want to book sessions or attend her workshops as well... So, Brad didn't want Natalie to miss out on any possible bookings...so he told me his secret! :) Love that man! I am so blessed.

So, we are booked for July 22 with Natalie...CAN'T WAIT! Now I need to lose about 25lbs...and get a tan! :)

Take a minute to browse her blog, Pics and Kicks...she is so talented and offers wonderful advice to photographers on her sidebar. She has been featured in InStyle Weddings, Exquisite Weddings and Ceremony Magazine, and she writes articles for DPS (an AMAZING and F-R-E-E resource!).  She was also recently interviewed by Totally Rad Actions...check it out HERE.

If you're interested in booking a session or for pricing info, contact her here: natalienorton@gmail.com 

I cannot tell you how excited I am to finally meet her in person...I've been following her blog/life for a little over a year now. Not in a "pscyho-fan" way, but in an "I-feel-like-I've-known-her-forever" kind of way. She just has a way with words that makes you feel like you KNOW her.  So, don't delay...she will be all booked up soon!  (if she isn't already!)  And p.s. Jonathan Canlas is A-MAZING as well...so if you're in Utah, or able to travel up there for the workshop...I guarantee that with the two of them, you will be getting a priceless amount of knowlege/advice/experience out of it...  sigh...wish I could go!

GOOD NEWS #2

I've heard a rumor that Cafe Rio is opening in Costa Mesa in a few weeks! Not sure of the actual date yet...but I will post it when I find out!

Yum, yum, yum...can't wait!  :)
