Dearest Erica,

I (we) cannot thank you enough for the wedding photos…to say they’re “amazing” really doesn’t do your work justice. Let me start off by saying that I’m not my #1 fan in photos…but out of the 500 or so shots we have so far…there is NOTHING I would delete. My other self-critic in the family (that would be Mama Bloom) also loves herself in these…which is nothing short of a miracle. You’ve captures the mood, spirit and energy of our wedding flawlessly. Every shot is just “us” – without too much posing or “picture” faces going on. The group shots are amazing and take me right back to that moment. I am so glad we found you and hope that you can keep capturing pictures of our family as it grows (of course, I suppose we should get on it before you become way too famous and expensive for us…ha ha ha ha ha ha)

Thank you again.

Katia & Gleb


I joined Cross Fit! ( http://www.crossfit.com ) It is amazing. I am now on the Paleo diet. It says:

“Eat meat and vegetables, nuts and seeds, some fruit, little starch and no sugar.” –CrossFit.com ( Paleo Diet )

It is pretty cool. It is a block from my house. It is very intense for one hour – just the way I like it. I have shred inches already – I highly recommend it! My goal is to have a six pack for the summer – and to be just super fit and healthy. Now I am eating a lot of turkey – chicken – unsweetened ketchup – apples – peaches – grapefruit. My treat is….. the LARABAR!! It is pretty great. I have cut out sugar out of my diet and dairy. People have been asking where the fat comes from – it comes from the LARABAR! It is good fat though. Why am I doing all of this. I like simplicity and guidance with my job and life. I feel great and I wanted to share this with you guys. By the way – I am still doing TURBO KICKBOXING at 24 hour – if anyone wants to join I would love it!

Simple Rules To The Paleo Diet:

The essentials of the Paleolithic Diet are:

Eat none of the following:

· Grains- including bread, pasta, noodles

· Beans- including string beans, kidney beans, lentils, peanuts, snow-peas and peas

· Potatoes

· Dairy products

· Sugar

· Salt

Eat the following:

· Meat, chicken and fish

· Eggs

· Fruit

· Vegetables (especially root vegetables, but definitely not including potatoes or sweet potatoes)

· Nuts, eg. walnuts, brazil nuts, macadamia, almond. Do not eat peanuts (a bean) or cashews (a family of their own)

· Berries- strawberries, blueberries, raspberries etc.

Try to increase your intake of:

· Root vegetables- carrots, turnips, parsnips, rutabagas, Swedes

· Organ meats- liver and kidneys (I accept that many people find these unpalatable and won’t eat them)


Do you recognize this spot? Well….. it is because I shoot here ALL THE TIME!! AND… I love it. My clients love it too. I had a BALL with Courtney and Paul. There were 1000 balloons at the Embarcadero yesterday due to an event. There was a bundle all by it’s self….. I snuck over and got them.. hehe. I love balloons! I love shooting here – I love to find new things and angles. I have a wedding tomorrow. I’m pumped.
