tina + kurt + baby tyler [san francisco] 12.01.10

what a sweet family! baby tyler has the most chill parents + he has the best hair of any baby, ever! we rarely get time in our schedules to photograph family/lifestyle sessions these days but the timing for tina's inquiry was perfect since we were already making our travel plans for an engagement session in san francisco for one of our couples (post coming soon!) they wanted to have the session at crissy field to capture the iconic golden gate bridge (when it wasn't hiding behind the fog!) here are a few of our favorites from their morning session....
thanks again tina, kurt + baby tyler for the great session!
xo,
cristen + scott

surprise birthday beach party! 09.11.09

what's better than having a surprise birthday party?!? having a surprise birthday party on the beach! scott + adam took a drive up to north carolina a few weeks ago to photograph the 60th birthday celebration of the matriarch of this sweet family. one of her daughters contacted us a few months ago + secretly arranged to have the party photographed. along with her siblings, they created a celebration that was so thoughtful + full of love in all the little details! nana [as they fondly call her] was definitely moved to tears + reveled in every moment! this definitely got me thinking that my sister + i need to really do it up big when our mom celebrates her 60th! here's a few that we love....
the march down to the surprise....

happy birthday!!! and a very happy weekend to everyone else!

viva las vegas SIGNS!!! 02.26.09

the neon boneyard is about one of the coolest places in vegas, hands down! it's also one of the most secretive places to find and you can only get into tour it by appointment...and the wait list is usually more than 2 weeks out especially when a bunch of photogs are in town! well, our vegas luck was rollin high and we along with jesse + whitney were able to experience the 3 acres of wonderment on our last full day in sin city! there's a side of me that loves vintage, kitschy stuff and all these retro signs were so amazing to see, some of which are very famous and used in movies! rumor has it that they are going to be changing up the layout of the boneyard soon and our tour guide told us that we were all really lucky to get to see it in its original state when you can get up close to the signs and actual touch them. the new museum will have paved walkways with all the signs roped off and the tours will be self guided. the signs will all also be propped upright and will be lit up if possible. there was something so nostalgic seeing it in this rudimentary form and the inner artists in scott + jesse were so happy as they snapped away! here's just a few of the images that scott took....if your headed to vegas anytime soon, i highly suggest adding this to your list of things to do while you can still catch the boneyard like this!
these stars are from the famous 'stardust' hotel that opened in vegas in 1958 and closed in 2006
this crowned king was really famous but i did not hear why! something about shipping his head all over the world to be used in movies so on days when it's really windy his head sways around during the tours!
i loved this slipper! girls love shoes of all kinds!
