Friday Feet - Dec 31, 2010

its the last day of 2010, and we still have feet! this week, our feet have been festive, bobsled, snowy and have visited loved ones at their snowy work place. hm. interesting that most of them involve a snowy situation. sure, my snow on the mountain was fake, but there WAS a yeti! hope everyone had a great holiday, and kick off a happy new years!
amy - "I built a snow man! The snow finally stuck long enough for me to do so. I will attempt to make a larger one on the morrow. Woo for snow men! Happy New Year everyone!"
emily - "wednesday was our final day at disneyland. and it POURED. of course, this meant shorter lines for things like thunder mountain railway and the matterhorn. there were even cast members using a shop vac on the bottom of the bobsleds in order to suck the water out."
jenny - "jennys feet went to the snow to seek the feet of their dreams. or some such nonsense."
kasey - "My happy Santa feet. An awesome Christmas gift from my momma ♥. My feet are getting ready for bed. Ready for new years eve tomorrow."

Friday Feet - Dec 24, 2010

Christmas Cookies 2010

christmas cookies are an interesting creation at our house... while some are "traditional" shaped, others... not so much. and the sprinkle decorations lead these cookies down a whole different road.
i mean seriously... where else would you find THIS variety of christmas tree shaped gingerbread cookies? not on martha stewart's blog, that's for sure! not to mention that these don't include the other shapes that were created... hippos, cat faces, dinosaurs and some hearts were also added in the mix. merry christmas eve, everyone!

Friday Feet - Dec 10, 2010

amy - "Gable is helping me do the 10:30pm. :P He is visiting here in Reno while Rue is at Grandma Dori's recuperating from a tooth extraction performed by the wonderful Dr. Williams. I couldn't live without a Whippet, especially since Luke is also gone this week. It would have been too lonely! I'm also preparing for Finals Week next week. *insert scary music*"
emily - "done with finals, its time to wrap, yo!"
jenny - "A lovely night of christmas light sight seeing"
kasey - "Woke up one morning with near 2 feet of snow outside. For this picture, i'm standing in our yard in the shallower snow. it comes to about mid-calf. On the driveway, my knees are buried. Yay for Winter!"

Friday Feet - Dec 3, 2010

hoorah! our first feet post of december. how crazy that we've made it this far already! with most of us gearing up for finals, our creativity may lack a little the next few weeks, but bear with us. we'll have some exciting feet plans once the holidays get closer :)
- "Rue and I just chilling on the couch. It's lonely here with Luke gone at training in Utah. Good thing I have Rue here to keep me warm! Nothing like some hot chocolate, a warm dog and organic chemistry to make an evening grand. ^^"
emily - "every year for my birthday, i get a macy's gift card from my aunt. i never shop at macys, so the last three years they have stockpiled. yesterday (12.01), i found boots. today, they became mine. boots originally priced $89.99. i left macy's with only $5.16 charged to my debit card."
jenny - "a haiku to go with my feet: autumn colors so vibrant/fall from the treetops/never could they displease me"
kasey - "snow feets"

what did YOU do this weekend?

this weekend was pretty eventful for me (and my camera!)
saturday, it was said to be raining, so i got a hold of my favorite jenny, and convinced her to come play in the rain between her work shifts. and she did! she has those super cute rainboots too, which made her rainy day playing all the better :) of course, we also had to do some intense puddle jumping (you can see the aftermath of it marked on her jeans) with a monsterous puddle on the corner of a fairly busy road. we were cold, she was soaked past her knees, but it was fun!
Sunday, i headed out to newcastle to photograph another friend from high school and her four-year-old horse. mind you, i've never photographed horses before, or have even been around one for a prolonged period of time. so this was DEFINITELY a new experience for me.we shot all the photos on location at the ranch sam boards her horse at, and might i say, the opportunities were endless! if it weren't for a tired out horse, and my freezing fingers, we probably could have shot for hours! so, with that said... how did you spend YOUR weekend?

Friday Feet - Nov 26, 2010

we had a birthday this last weekend! kasey turned the big 23 on saturday, and was lucky enough to celebrate! along with birthdays came thanksgiving break. some of us got snow, some of us got the opposite of snow and went to the beach. and some of us spent a few days at the movie theaters.
amy - "snow! Finally! Just looking at my new snow in my pjs before school!"
emily - "movie night with jenny! we got some girl time (since we missed out on carpet mountain this week) and had another 'date night' with each other. tonight we dined on wendys and hit up the theater to see'morning glory' with harrison ford and rachel mcadams. great movie, hilarious one liners, an awesome soundtrack, and a wonderous evening with one of my favorite people :)"
jenny - "Campfire feet enjoying a chilly evening at dillon beach for thanksgiving"
kasey - "before the Arch de Triomph, before the Eiffel Tower and then atop the Arch." (if you click on the picture, it should enlarge so you can see the awesomeness better)

Happy Thanksgiving!

have i missed photographing large family groups? yes, yes i have! and 15 was SUCH a perfect number. although, we could have done with some slightly warmer weather so we could shoot outside... but i think with our frantic location searching, we pulled it off quite well. here is a sneak peek of the family group i shot this past sunday in one of their homes. sure looks like a tight squeeze, doesn't it? its okay, they all love each other ;)
happy thanksgiving everyone! hope you have a great time with friends, family, and everyone that matters most :)

Don't Worry, I'm Still Here

I'm sure you're all wondering what i've been up to. Since there has really been nothing new and exciting to post, i'll show you! I've been up to my elbows in shooting for my college courses, and here is the collection from my last submission for studio lighting.
first, there were fortune cookiesand then along came some waffles and syrup.and then, i had to hit up my frequently used building for an architectural assignment at dusk. I don't know what i would do without you, performing arts center!last, i had to do an interior architecture shot, so i visited some model homes in rocklin and shot like crazy!This studio submission set is just HALF of what i've been doing the last few weeks. I'll try and share some of the documentary project i've been working on for my final project in that class. As well, i have a couple shoots coming up in the works to look forward to. A family group of about 15 (yay! i love large family groups!) and one of my high school friends and her horse. Super excited for what is to come, and hopefully i don't get rained out!

Friday Feet - Nov 5th, 2010

with halloween come and gone this past weekend, i proposed the idea of diptychs to my fellow friday feet-ers. they were down with it, so that we could show you our feet, as well as the costume of choice this year! so this may be the only time you see our faces and feetsies, unless i come up with some other brilliant plan. oh, and merry unbirthday to my three lovely friends and all you readers out there! the same can't be said for me :P
amy - "The bowl used to be overflowing. We got SO many Trick or Treaters by the last one I only had 10 pieces of candy left and i started out with over 200! It was so much fun!"
emily - "this costume idea actually started LAST year when i jokingly told my little sister she should be steve for halloween while we were in k-mart. to her dismay, i swiped the idea this year and ran with it. we held our monthly bowling night on the 30th, and here is the end result! i feel like i pulled it off in a very not man-ish looking way :)"
jenny - "Went out halloween bowling with my pallies this week. My costume was Wayne from Wayne's World. Creative, yes i know."
kasey - "Halloween presented a House Par-tay at our house. I decorated my toes in celebration. They were excited to be painted so nicely and were ready for their close up!"

Friday Feet - Oct 29th, 2010

it's our pre-halloween post, so nothing scary today! i do find it funny when we seem to run along a theme unintentionally - this week 3 out of 4 of us had pets in our pictures. what spooky things will you see next week? you'll just have to wait and see! p.s. next post will be on my birthday and amy, jenny & kasey's merry unbirthday! :)
- "Here is the front door of my house with all of my Dollar Store Halloween decorations. I'm SO excited for the Trick or Treaters this year! I'm wearing my pig socks because it's getting cold outside finally! YAY!"
emily - "this is what 'should have gone to the gym' looks like. lap cat while watching 'are you smarter than a 5th grader. why? because nothing else is on..."
jenny - "This is Bella, our rottie-mixed-with-something, who is around 2 yrs old and rather rambunctious. im still amazed i got her to lie still."
kasey - "I sat on the couch to sew a bit of Papa's costume back together, the string holding his wing came loose. So while I worked on it, he watched in curiosity. ♥"
