I just got back a 2 week trip from California last night. It was FABULOUS! My friends and I got to go to San Francisco, Napa, Moneterey (Monterey Bay Aquarium!), Santa Monica, Anaheim (Disneyland), La Jolla, San Diego (Sea World), Redondo Beach, and all the cities in between! 🙂 I was the official navigator for 2 weeks, which meant I rode shotgun for 2 weeks… Woot woot! I’ll have a TON of travel photos up in a little bit. (I have 2 midterms this week, so they’ll be up shortly after)
But while I was there, I was super lucky to attend a Jessica Claire workshop. I actually planned the California trip, then got an e-mail from Jessica saying that she was offering a workshop when I was going to be in the area ANYWAY. I thought it was PERFECT how it worked out, so off I went! The workshop was AMAZING! I learned a LOT, met 18 new friends, and Jessica coordinated a super cute styled shoot (all vendors linked below). It was such an amazing day; I was EXHAUSTED by the end! We also had a fabulous dinner cooked by Jeff and Michael Norwood. And [b]ecker dropped by for dinner too! (He totally recognized me from his Vancouver workshop! ;D) I’m blogging this “session” in 4 parts, since I can’t narrow down my favourites. Haha. So get ready! 🙂
Off to the fabulous photos… But first, here’s the list of the AWESOME vendors!

I think something about California light makes the bokeh even more wonderful…
Isn’t Lindsay GORGEOUS?! She’s like a cross between Rachel Bilson and Reese Witherspoon.
Braedon and Lindsay! 🙂 Super sweet!
The Californian light <3 <3 <3
Seriously. I don’t think they can be ANY cuter.
Okay. This is part 1/4. I’ll post parts 2, 3, and 4 in the upcoming days! :):) The workshop was AMAZING, and I can’t wait to see photos from the other attendees! 😀
