40th Birthday Surprise – Santa Rosa Family (and surprise party!) Photographer

August 23, 2015 – A friend’s husband set up the ultimate photobomb! Family portraits were the perfect cover for the big surprise for her 40th birthday! Good job all!

Her darling niece and nephew were baptised this morning, so the family came to Doyle Park for “family photos” with me!  Unbeknownst to the auntie in the middle, there are over 100 people down in the creek behind her, just waiting…… Becky40thSurprise-6

for the signal from my sweet hubby (who pretended he was posting a sneak peek to my business page on Facebook) but was really texting everyone to come up SILENTLY.

They did an amazing job being quiet.  I started getting nervous though, they would be found out if I didn’t do SOMETHING to mask their feet….. Becky40thSurprise-13

So, we began to sing “Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star” to get the no-nap toddler re-engaged with photos.  Whew… that worked, and then we switched to “Happy Birthday” since auntie had just turned 40….. at which point….. Becky40thSurprise-16

Everyone joined into the song…… And this happened!!  SURPRISE!Becky40thSurprise-19

Good job everyone, she had NO idea this was coming.  Becky40thSurprise-22

The final cast and crew.  Minus the family guys, who were standing behind me at the time…. Take a bow, we pulled it off!Becky40thSurprise-27

Angel Island – 10 year anniversary trip

June 24, 2015 – 10 years after our wedding, we decided to camp on Angel Island.  We backpacked! (ok, only 2.5 mile hike, but still!) I roughed it!

Sunset was beautiful, but we were on the wrong side of the island to get the best views.AngelIsland-Web-6

Our campsite looked out over the bay, we could see the bay bridge, and hear the noise of a busy port (all night long).AngelIsland-Web-7

Hiking out in the morning was beautiful.AngelIsland-Web-9

Our favorite place to eat when in Tiburon!  Happy anniversary honey!AngelIsland-Web-10
