My New Friend


Hello all!
It has been awhile since I have posted last. I have been busy with my new best friend! I got Sadie when she was 6 weeks old, she just turned 9 weeks today. She is half rottie, part sharpea, and part border collie. :) She is a handful and has been a great addition to the family.

She is my new favorite model. Check out a few of the photographs I have taken of her over the past three weeks.

Cheri getting ready for the big day

HI! My good friend Cheri got married this summer. I was one of the lucky bridesmaids... unfortunately, that mean that I couldn't be her photographer. before her photographer got there, I was able to fallow her around with my lens and catch the behind the scenes action. The day couldn't have been more perfect. Here is a sneak peak of the photographs I took. Enjoy!

Coopers Summer Slideshow

video

Over the summer I spent time with Cooper and mom Heidi. He is one of my favorite subjects. That day we hung out at the house, grabbed a bite to eat, talked to Cooper's grandma (Becky)on the phone, and blew bubbles in the back yard. Take a look at this slideshow and stay tuned for my next visit to Fort Bragg with Cooper.

Road Trip to Utah


Hello all!
Crystal and I went on a week long road trip to Utah last week. We started our adventure in Las Vegas for a girls night. What a blast! We then drove to Zion National Park where we camped and took a bunch of photographs. After staying there for a few days we ventured off to Arches National Park. We hiked around and saw many of the different arches and Satyed in Moab. We had a wonderful trip and lots of great photos. Here are a few... Also be sure to check out Crystal's photo on her blog (Look under "my favorite Blogs").

Down on the Farm!



On Labor Day,  my star model of the year (Kenzie) and a few of her friends dressed up in their homecoming dresses and put their cowboy boots on for a funky session. We had so much fun. These girls were climbing on tractors, sitting on motorcycles, laying in dirt. Kenzi even got in her sisters wedding dress and sat in the garden. I love taking photos of these girls, they are always willing and come up with some great ideas. Take a look at a few of these. I will post more on my website Colombi Photography or feel free to check out my Myspace for more of this session or other sessions.

I'm Back!!

Ciao!
I have been back a week today. I had an amazing time in Italy, I can't wait to go back. We started in Rome, went to Florence, to Levanto (my favorite), Varenna, Bologna, and finally Venice.

Levanto is a small town in the Cinque Terre area. There you can lay by the beach, go for hikes, eat local food, and scuba dive.

I spent most of my time eating, walking, and taking pictures. I now am trying to cook with fresh mozzarella, basil, tomatoes and make some authentic Italian meals.

Here are few of my favorite images. They are taken in Levanto, Varenna, and Venice.

Enjoy!

Hello!


After 3 years of planning, my trip to Italy is FINALLY here. This is a graduation present from my parents and aunt and uncle. I will be touring Northern Italy with my aunt, uncle, and cousin. We start in Rome and finish up our trip in Venice. We will be there for 2.5 weeks. I can't believe that it's finally here. :) I will have my camera and lots of memory cards by my side! I look forward to posting my favorite photographs when I get back.

Take care!

My Trip To Colorado






In May Brenda and I ventured off to Colorado for a few days. It was beautiful there! During our time we both got certified for a volunteer organization called Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep, Click here to learn more about it. This was a full two day seminar, jam packed with info. Our trip was not all work and no play. We went our to a comedy club and had dinner one night in Denver, then we ventured off to Littleton. We borrowed a friends car went to the mall and then drove around to the Red Rock theatre. It was AMAZING. I'd love to move there and get a Subaru outback. :)

WPPI 2008 Las Vegas

Hello all! About a week ago Brenda, Crystal, and I went to the WPPI 2008 convention for a week. WPPI is a international Photography convention. I took three classes a day from 8:30am to 10:30pm, I listened to some amazing photographers from all over the world. Their work is AMAZING, and their classes were inspirational. I learned so much about the photography industry in that short week. Our stay in Vegas was not all work, we celebrated my 24th Birthday at the end of the week. What a perfect experience! I can't wait to go back next year. Here are some photos from outside our hotel.

Sisterly Love!

On Sunday Erika, Jess, and I went to down town Sacramento for a portrait session in the park. We started the day off with some sister photos, but Jess had to leave. Then Erika and I roamed the park, did a few clothing changes, and took some photos. We started and 9am, we had great morning light, and hardly anyone was at the park.What a perfect day for photos!
