Finally.  And looking forward to not traveling and just nesting from here on out:).  Although, I did have the most wonderful month meeting new friends, reconnecting with old friends, seeing my family, and traveling the world.  I just wanted to share a little bit of what I was up to over the month of July.

First, I had the wonderful opportunity to attend a workshop with 19 other fabulous photographers in the Bay Area of California (there we are!).

As a part of that workshop, we photographed some absolutely beautiful families at the Palace of Fine Arts in San Francisco.  It was truly a gorgeous place to shoot.

I tend to forget I am pregnant while shooting–even at 32 weeks:).

After less than 17 hours after returning to Seattle from San Francisco, I headed out with the Pinhole Press team to Kinsale, Ireland.  If you haven’t checked out Pinhole Press, you need to.  They offer the most beautiful, well-made products that you can make with your digital images.  Kinsale was amazing, our hosts from Pinhole Press were amazing, and the other photographers on their team are simply amazing as well.

Some shots from around the town of Kinsale, including our tour guide Barry, who you couldn’t help but just love.

Images from our walk to and visit at Charles Fort in Kinsale (plus my darling roommate Li Ward of Fat Orange Cat Studio):

Blarney Castle, where you can kiss the Blarney Stone to gain the gift of gab (which I didn’t attempt to do in my pregnant state–although, I think my family, friends, and clients will agree that I already have that gift in spades;) ):

We ended the trip with dinner at Old Head, a breathtakingly beautiful golf course on the coast of Ireland (recently rated the #1 most spectacular golf course in the world by Links magazine):

As much fun as I had, I am glad to be home, glad to be done with sessions for a while(I have two more blog posts to come), and glad to be able to (hopefully) catch my breath before my own sweet baby girl makes her arrival.  I can’t wait!

Finally, a big thank you to our workshop sponsers:
