an oldie but a goodie

anyone who knows me well will recognize these two. i have photographed these twins twice now and i absolutely adore them. this is from last summer, but i wanted to make sure they got on here.
their names start with e and g. their mom told me i could "tell them apart because 'e' wears eyeglasses, although that could be confusing because glasses starts with g".
then i would call 'e', 'g' because all i'm thinking of is the glasses. anyway, she lost me and i don't know who is who. but they are darling and if they were mine i wouldn't have a career because i'd be photographing them all the time.

small, small world

this just blows me away.
you can track visits to your blog by adding a site meter onto it. so i go in here every once in awhile and you can not only see how many people are checking in, but also where they are coming from.
check this out! there are people in pakistan, hong kong, venezuela, the uk, canada and switzerland that somehow stumbled on to my little blog from des moines, ia. and that was just today.
it is truly cool to see how connected this world is.

santa barbara morning

jackie & mattieu

jackie grew up in des moines and then moved to the east coast where she met mattieu. mattieu grew up in france and after a brief stint as a foreign exchange student his freshmen year in high school, came back to the states for grad school. mattieu is pronounced a little bit like "achoo" in french. they met, fell in love were married february 23rd at the temple for performing arts in des moines. mattieu's family came from france and although they spoke english, i think they got a kick out everyone speaking very slowly and loudly to them.
we had an awesome time at their wedding. they gave us a whole hour just to play around at the temple and take photos.
they're having another ceremony in may in france, but they won't take me with them. they did, however, read on my blog that i love trader joe's and have promised me a special treat from there. i guess that will do.
happy happy spring! have fun in france.
