Wow…another 10 on 10 is here! This month in addition to my usual 10th of the month paperwork whirlwind, it is Salmon season. My brother is the latest generation of our family to be a commercial fisherman and I work with him to market his fish, which means when he comes in, I’m there for the offload. This month the 10th was an offload day…it gets a little crazy (and dirty) out there so I used my handy dandy iphone to capture my mobile office for the day!
Now go check out the awesome Stephanie and the rest of the circle of 10 on 10!
One random afternoon I got a call from a number I recognized as being East Coast, I picked up, ready for a telemarketer, but on the line was a lovely woman that wanted to know about gift certificates. She said that her daughter lived in Half Moon Bay, and wanted me for her birthday! I’m always excited when someone finds me online and likes what I do, especially because I’ve been woefully bad at updating my web presence.
It took us a while to connect, and we were all set to meet around 5, while the weather men spent the day saying that was around when the rain would begin. We decided to race it…and while it caught up with us, the skies were beautiful and so was this family.
Its that time again! And this time there wasn’t a Jiu Jitsu tournament. Instead the 10th of April was a busy work day for me, so busy I forgot to pick up my camera until I was done with a huge pile of monthly projects for the Property Management business and halfway out the door to get Todd. As I waited for him, he called to tell me he’d be late because I forgot about his new after school science class….so off to more work, and a cute drawn on boy impromptu photo shoot on the front porch, with a furry audience, some homework and then bed.
Check out what the lovely Andrea is up to this month and follow the circle of awesomeness! I can’t wait to do the same!
I swear that there is more to our lives than Brazillian Jiu Jitsu, it just so happens that both February 10 and March 10 were dates of competitions. After our trip to LA for Kids Pan Ams last month, Raul was inspired to host a competition here at our school. It was a bit of a last minute plan, but it turned out to be pretty amazing.
Unfortunately for my photo project, I was working most of the day and couldn’t take too many creative photos…but I did manage to grab my 10 shots. Including the medal I designed and my work space.
He was less than thrilled right after…he really felt he had the match in hand and was disappointed that he couldn’t pull out a win on his home turf. He got over it though, and we all enjoyed another awesome day with our RCMA Family.
Next month it looks like the 10th will fall on a non-Jiu Jitsu tournament date, so I promise I will shoot something else.
For now, I am really looking forward to clicking through the whole circle of 10 on 10 photographers this morning, starting with the awesome birthday girl Micah and because our circle is a little out of sorts this morning…please also check out Stephanie.
When the beautiful Kristina Rust asked me to be part of a new photography project she was putting together, I jumped at the chance. I love Kristina and am so grateful that she and I have become friends. Her idea was for 10 photographers to take 10 photos on the 10th of the month and link to each other around the web. I’m so excited to follow all of the links and see what all of my soon to be new friends have come up with.
It just so happened that this in this first month of February the 10th was a rather big day. We traveled to Southern California the day before for the Pan American Kids Jiu Jitsu Championship.
My son has been training Jiu Jitsu for just about 5 of his 10 years, and he loves it. This is the largest kids competition of the year, and the first time RCMA has put together a team to participate. It was a road trip full of fun and while there were no victories for the three kids that competed, there were lessons and experiences that they will never forget.
It was a time I won’t soon forget either. It was only 42 hours, but they were wonderful, intense, comical, emotional, proud, anxious, fun hours with people that I am beyond crazy about!
Now I hope that you will go and check out what Megan has come up with and follow the links to all 10 photographers. I can’t wait to see all of their images!
Once again I have had the honor to photograph the daughter of a family I’ve known forever, her sister graduated a few years ago, and I was lucky enough to photograph her as well. One more to go in the future, I only wish I would have been up and running when the oldest graduated!
Anyway, Ms. Bella and I had a perfect evening on a perfect fall day in HMB and it was great to hang out with her. Beautiful light, gorgeous eyes and an easy smile make me love this job! These girls are lovely on the inside and out, Diana and Jimmy, you should be very proud! Congrats to Ms. Bella.
I mentioned how grateful I am for this beautiful bride when I shot their engagement photos last year. This girl is stunningly beautiful, and the light that she has inside of her is so big, you can’t help but feel it. Seriously, she is the walking, talking definition of beautiful inside and out. It was an honor to be asked to capture her wedding day, which was full of perfect personal details. I’m so happy for her and for her handsome husband. Thank you Kristin & Dan!
I hope that Erin and Josh love it too!
They say it is good luck when it rains on your wedding day…but with the amount of love between these two, they aren’t going to need any extra luck. Their day was gorgeous, rain and all and so are they…
