Dear Internetland (aka our faithful blog readers and also those of you who randomly stumble upon our humble blog):

I am trying so hard to emerge from this baby vortex. It is a black hole that sucks you into the wonder and joy of being with a little mini-me -  ok, let’s be honest, he is a mini-Brett! Well, I guess constant feeding, diaper changing and midday naps to compensate for sleepless nights might also contribute to the vortex factor. Either way, we are so overwhelmed with the joy of being new parents.

Despite all that, it is time to re-emerge and come back into the world at large. Goodbye vortex, hello world – gradually!

Today I introduce to you our son – North Joseph Faulknor!  He is a splitting image of his father – and I love him for it!  These are a few pics taken by my sleep deprived hubby at the hospital!

Now what would I be doing blogging and not talking about weddings?!?  Here is my wedding note of the day:

We are happy to announce that we are almost completely booked for 2010 and are currently booking for the 2011 wedding season.  Thanks to all of the wonderful couples who have entrusted us to capture their wedding this year. We are so excited to get to know you all better and to have a blast at your engagement sessions and weddings with you. Those of you who still want to book us for 2010, connect with us soon! We hate turning people away, but we just cannot be in two places at once! To those that we have had to say’ I’m sorry, but we’re not available that day’ – we wish you the best and know that our photographer friends that we refer you to will take great care of you!

Regularly scheduled blogging to resume. . . as soon as the battle against the baby vortex is won!

Hello everyone!

YES, we are still alive and NO, baby has still not come yet, but I wanted to let you know that baby is the reason for the blog silence. Simple tasks have gotten quite difficult for me in the last weeks of my pregnancy, one of those being fitting behind the computer. :) We are soooo super stoked to meet our son, the suspense is killing me! We can’t wait to introduce him to all of you when he arrives and you can be sure that he will be a very well photographed little guy.

There will be many more engagement and weddings to come in this new year and we are currently booking for 2011 as well. We would love to work with you, so give us a ring or drop us an email and we will get back to you as soon as we can.

Just a few details regarding this amazing wedding -

Location: L’Aberge Del Mar – a beautiful venue and the staff there was some of the best we have worked with.

Her dress – Was exquisite and was designed by her VERY talented sister, Jenna. AMAZING work Jenna!!!

Her shoes – These Hey Lady shoes were fabulous – a gorgeous design and made to be comfortable all day long.  Check em’ out ladies – they are SO worth it!!!

Hair was done by Brie at the XOXO salon in Solana Beach. Seriously LOVED her hair! The style fit Erica’s class so perfectly.

Bridesmaid dresses were Vera Wang. Not only were they gorgeous and comfy (or so said the girls), but they had pockets too! So practical! :)

Men’s suits – Brooks Brothers. They all looked so sharp as if they stepped out of the catalog.

They had a photobooth that was SOOO much fun and we hope to post some pictures on that later on as well.

Enjoy the pics and blessings to you all! Please don’t forget about us, I promise you that we will be back after the baby is born! :)
