OAKLAND ZOO

Last Saturday we went to the Oakland Zoo for the first time.
The amount of different animals were in impressive but overall I wasn't too impressed with the animal pens. Nothing quite compares to the Woodland Zoo in Seattle.
Aubrey and I felt sorry for some of these animals!





 She's my cuddler

MOTHER'S DAY GIFT

While Aubrey and Jared were working in the backyard on a Mother's Day gift I requested (a pvc backdrop holder) I was trying out some new backdrops and props with Harper. 
I haven't taken a lot of photos of her lately as she isn't normally very cooperative.
She hardly ever makes eye contact with the camera - without the camera she's fine!
I wasn't planning on taking any photos today but I had some ideas so I thought I would try them out and I managed to get a handful of photos of her out of it!

 I had Aubrey's old bed headboard and footboard in the garage and I had wanted to use it and make it look like she was sitting on a bed - I like how it turned out and how easy it was to set up.

 I just got this doll buggy and have used it for a newborn but I wanted to sit a child in it to see if it would work. It's kind of delicate and falling a part but she sat fine it, and it held up well!

I just got this floral backdrop. I've had this chair for a long time - since before Aubrey was born and have hardly used it. It's been rusting outside so I thought I'd bring it in and start using it!

SWEET SHOPPE

 The other day I did a photoshoot using Aubrey's old play kitchen and so I thought I'd try and get some extra use out of the candy with the girls.

WILDER RANCH STATE PARK

Back in the end of February we had some really nice weather so one Saturday we decided to check out a park that was just North of Santa Cruz called Wilder Ranch.
It's an old ranch that is now a park open to the public.

 We saw some chickens


Checked out the old barns.

  The original homestead

 These bushes were massive and had tunnels running all through them. I'm inside it looking out the top.



Then since were close by, we stopped at Natural Bridges beach in Santa Cruz after grabbing some lunch (and diapers because we didn't bring a single one!).



The water was cold, but she LOVED it.

JUST SOME CANDIDS

I felt like when Aubrey was Harper's age I had so much time to just watch her and take photos of her playing. So I took advantage of the day to try and take some photos of Harper just playing.
I try not to work at all on the weekends, so now I need to remember capture some of these moments.

JUST FOR FUN

I took some photos the other night for a friend of her kids an this great little pedal car airplane and I managed to get a couple of Aubrey. It was a bit of gong show trying to get 5 kids in total to do some different poses together and individually, at dinner time (when the light was best) in the wind and cold but it was fun and I'm glad I got to use her little plane!
