Hey, how are you? I know, I's been a long time. Let's just get that out of the way shall we.

Wow have things been happening on the Moore front. I have found that with Facebook the need to update this blog isn't that necessary anymore, however I can't bring myself to delete it. So instead I am going to try and update as much as I can, even if it ends up just being redundant. But I guess there are some things in life that you can't fit into a status update box, so this will be the place for that.

Jude is amazing. I really couldn't have asked for a better kid. He is so sweet, smart and full of imagination. He is also already half my height, how did that happen. I guess I should also mention that I am 5'7", and Jude isn't 3 yet. He is a giant. We have been trying to learn numbers, colors and shapes to get ready for school. Until recently I wasn't going to put him into preschool since it is just so expensive and I was determined that I can teach Jude anything he needs to know to get to Kindergarten. But with not knowing what he needs to know and finding out about state funded preschools I am going to be enrolling him into Jespersens once he is 3. One thing that we are struggling with is drawing. I just can't get him into it. We will sit down to color and he just makes a few squiggle marks and then walks away....he's just not into it. But being able to draw lines is a requirement to pass Kindergarten, which I know is a ways away and he still has to actually go to preschool..I just want to him to do the best he can possibly do.

As for Jesse and I. We are great. Jesse is working at his third screenprinting shop and works 10-12 hours a day :/ I stay at home with Jude and work on photography stuff. We lead a pretty boring life, but we like it and we get a lot of family time. We have been going to church at Harvest in Avila Beach for almost 2 years now and it's great. I LOVE small churches and close nit fellowship. I have learned more in the past two years about the bible and God than I have my whole life. We have been through a lot of ups and downs and I wouldn't give up my struggles for anything. There is something so freeing about knowing your life is not in your control. Some of you might think that it is crazy for me to say that, but it's true. Us Moore's roll with the punches, and we always turn out ok.

This past weekend was a lot of fun, we were still busy but it was all personal, not business. Saturday Sally Loo's hosted the Carrot Mob and asked if we would bring the photo booth to help with the fundraiser...we had a lot of fun. I got sunburned, but it was fun!
To see the photos taken in the booth that day please click here!
Jude and Sally look like they are doing something they shouldn't...
Carrot back drop for the photo booth...great idea by Jenn Manuele!!!
That night we celebrated the upcoming nuptials of Luke and Emily!!!! It was a Day of the Dead themed party, which some of you might think is a little strange, but it is really fitting for Emily. Luke and Emily are getting married in July and we will be there to take the photos!!!
Sunday was a little more leisurely. Jude helped Nana Cathe in the garden and then we headed into Morro Bay for some lunch at Hofbrau and then a stop at the aquarium.

Hi Friends,

I know I have been missing for some time now, but don't worry I am not lost....just busy!

Wedding season has begun and I was a little shocked when I realized that I am swamped from here to October. I still can't believe that we have been this blessed! I am VERY thankful.

I just really wanted to pop on in and say a quick hello to let you all know that I am indeed alive and kicking. I have some fun photos I hope to share soon...

Until then,
Love you...

Truckee and trip and then some....

Jesse and I went on a trip to Truckee, Ca. last weekend to do some baby/family photos for Jerad and Saira West. We photographed Jerad and Saira's wedding back in 2008 and were so excited when we got the email that they were expecting their first born and they wanted us to photograph them again. This is what Jesse and I want from our business, getting to know people and being a part of their lives doing what we are passionate about...taking pictures!
I like to do newborn photos in the clients home. It is much more relaxed and easier on baby, mom and dad...Jesse and I were also excited to visit Truckee and see the snow. So, keep your eyes peeled for a blog coming soon at Moore Photography of baby Jack and his parents :)

Anybody that knows Jesse and I, knows that we LOOOOOVE Sally Loo's Wholesome Cafe in SLO, Ca! We are also lucky enough to call Jen and Brandon Manuele (the owners) friends. So no trip would be complete without starting there.

Jesse got the waffle and Ray of Freakin' Sunshine, which you really have to try!
I ordered my FAV item, a cranberry bagel toasted with cream cheese and an iced white mocha!!! YUM!!! I was so excited about it I almost ate it all without taking it's picture ;)
The Ray of Freakin' Sunshine!
The last bite of Jesse's waffle...a sad moment....

Jesse and I really like car trips. Before we had Jude if we had nothing going on we would just get in the car and drive. Sometimes we had a destination in mind and sometimes not... we just liked being together and having conversation, listening to music and eating somewhere we have never been.

This place was so cool and hard to capture how cool it really was out the car window with your camera phone ;) It is a boat graveyard...HUGE boats I might add, they look small here. There is something so eerie about them that it draws you in. I would love to do a photo shoot out there someday.

This is a frozen lake.

The Truckee Hotel was so awesome. It is European style which means the rooms are small with a sink and you have to share a toilet and shower with the other guests. I was stoked that they leave the vacant rooms open and don't care if you just go in. This hotel is also VERY old and the floor at some points feels like it is going to fall through.

Jerad and Saira took us to their favorite breakfast place in town (although I don't remember seeing another one) ;) Small towns are funny, Jerad and Saira know just about everyone...Jerad is an Orthodontist and Saira an Oral Hygienist and they own their own offices in town.

Our stay in Truckee was much too short, we stayed only one night. So we didn't get much photos of the town and how adorable it is. But we do wish to go up there some other time and explore! If you are a parent you will understand our hurry home... we went almost 48 hours without seeing Jude and that's all we could think about at this point...but we did stop for some Jimboys! Our friends the Hughes' introduced us to Jimboys many years ago when they were living in Sacramento and Jesse and I LOOOVE it! Thank goodness for the GPS to guide is to the closest one!

To end this post here is a cool shot of some skydivers coming in for a landing.
