Happy Birthday, Disneyland!

Have I ever mentioned that I grew up on a farm in the Central Valley? You'd think living in the middle of nowhere might get lonely, but it never was. My Mom and Dad wanted to encourage creativity in our home, so instead of watching television-we'd spend our days putting on circus shows, opening pretend restaurants, and making family newspapers. Our favorite thing to do though, was set up "rides" in our backyard and pretend we were at Disneyland.

Every year we'd pack up the van and road trip to Disneyland. It was the kind of vacation that made us so excited, we couldn't sleep the night before. It really was our "happiest place on earth". We loved it so much, that as we'd head home, we'd fill a notebook with ideas about what we'd do next year. The funny thing though, is that Disneyland was never really about the characters for me. Sure, I carried around my Eeyore doll everywhere I went. But as much as I loved these characters, I didn't love Disneyland because of Mickey Mouse. I loved it because it was a home for dreamers like myself. It was a happy reminder that anything is possible, if you dare to dream big enough. It gave me hope that someday, our family newspapers, circus shows, and pretend restaurants, could very well be a reality. If someone could create Disneyland, anything was possible. 

Happy birthday, Disneyland. Thank you for all the memories, and for the memories that are yet to come.

Disney California Cars Land Engagement Shoot

We had lots of reasons for dancing, Cars Land had just opened, it was a beautiful day, oh yeah...and Monique and Brian got engaged!!!!!!

Did I mention I did this whole shoot in a wheelchair with the help of Intern Marc?
He said I needed to start paying him more. :p

It was pretty crowded, but everyone was excited because Cars Land was amazing! 

It was really hard to narrow down the photos! Everything was so new and exciting!

Of course, we took some classic photos too: 

And ventured into Disneyland:

Sneak Peek of Monique and Brian's California Adventure Engagement Shoot!!

We had a lot of fun today photographing Brian and Monique's engagement session! They were totally at ease in front of the camera. Brian even said it was fun because it was a great excuse to flirt with Monique. All of the photos turned out really cute, and we had the hardest time narrowing down photos for the sneak peek! The shoot started out at Cars Land at Disney's California Adventure, and wound up in Mickey's Toontown. I can't wait to share the rest of the photos from this engagement session with you!

On a side note, this is what the park looked like today, isn't this crazy!?
