OC Blog Crush @ The Veggie Grill

Well as most of you know, we have really gotten into our blog this past year! We just love sharing our work with everyone and writing about all the fabulous people we meet at our sessions. I used to love to write poetry when I was younger, I had so much time to sit with my thoughts and reflect on life. It seems as adults we don’t take the time to just sit and relax with our thoughts and be inspired. All we do these days is make our way through the hustle and bustle of daily life and we forget to stop and take a moment to feel inspired. Most of our blogs are about our work, but this work inspires me, so I feel I can escape with my blogs and just think about these moments. Sometimes these moments are with people we just met, our friends, travels or just what is happening with us during the week (such as Jeff’s Weekly Rant’s…as I like to call them!) ūüôā

Anyways, my point is that we love to write our blogs whether they are for work or play! We keep writing because sometimes opening a link to a blog makes someone’s day! Recently, we have had the opportunity to meet up with some other bloggers in Orange County to talk about why we write our blogs and just make some new friends. It is fun to chat with others who are into blogging and why they do it. We have all of these social groups that we all get caught up in, but it is nice to go out and just talk to people.

Last week we went to the Veggie Grill at the Irvine Spectrum and sat on their patio and just talked to people.It was a lot of fun and a great opportunity to meet some new friends.

The Veggie Grill had some fabulous Salads & Sandwich’s. We had never eaten at a Vegetarian place before, but we’ll give it a go.¬† I always say try something once, and if you don’t like it, just don’t do it again! Jeff had the “Bean Me Up Chili”, he said he would order that again…I had a little taste and thought it was really good. I enjoyed the Bayou Chickin’ Sandwich…I thought of New Orleans when I ordered it…I just love the Cajun food. Surprisingly, I thought I was eating real chicken…it was delicious!

Our friend Suzanne and fellow blogger was there, and she had the Baja Fiesta Salad…it looked yummy…here it is!

Me + Suzanne…

Another friend and fellow blogger, Kristen of The Meringue Bake Shop was there with her Margarita cupcakes. It was the day after Cinco de Mayo, so we celebrated on Seis de Mayo with our delicious cupcakes. By the way, her red velvet cupcake is the “bomb” as well, so if you are looking for cupcakes for your next party or event you should check her out! Here is a shot of our fancy cupcake…all we need now is a Margarita, yum!

So it was an evening of Food, Cupcakes, New Friends and as always…a little photography! What can I say, these things make me happy. It was nice to meet all of you, even if we only got to chat briefly, hope to see you again soon.

Here are all of our blogs if anyone wants to read in their leisure…lots of good stuff going on!

Cody + Brandy = Sage and her First Birthday Party! Orange County Children Photographer

Congratulations to Cody + Brandy and their families…little Sage has turned one! This past week we were invited to shoot the events of Sage’s first birthday party. We first met this wonderful family when we did a session for their holiday cards and they asked us to come back and celebrate this happy day. We were thrilled to be there for these memories, Little Miss Sage was absolutely adorable in her fairy costume that was adorned with wings. This birthday princess had a fairy princess themed party, even her mom Brandy wore a crown too in honor of her daughter’s big day.¬† The¬† family celebrated with friends, a pony ride, a petting zoo, bounce house and don’t forget the cake & presents…as well as many family photos.

We wish all the best to Sage and her family! Thanks for letting Sipper Photography share your special day with you.

Enjoy- J+D

Sipper Photography & The Painted Turtle Charity!

Sipper Photography is excited to announce that we are involved with The Painted Turtle Charity.

This charity is one in Paul Newman’s foundation that hosts a camp and other year round programs for seriously ill children, as well as a family care center so these children can spend quality moments with their families in a comfortable environment.

Our involvement came about when we spoke to event designers Rachelle Jones of So FabuLuxe and Andrea Brown of BlissGirlz Events. Both of these fabulous ladies are hosting events this year to raise money for The Painted Turtle.  Both Rachelle & Andrea had visited our website and told us they absolutely loved our photography, and they were hoping we would  shoot some of the upcoming events in honor of this charity. When I heard we would be working to raise money for ill children, my heart melted and I wanted to be involved.

Our first event was last Saturday, which was an awesome shoe party event that Rachelle hosted with Shooz Etc. in Los Angeles and BlissGirlz Events to start raising money for this year’s fundraiser¬† “Masquerade at Twilight”; which will be held in October to celebrate the camp’s fifth anniversary as well as honor the camp and its successes. We are so honored to be asked to contribute to such an amazing goal through the work of our photography, and excited to work with these two talented event planners who will make these events spectacular. With nothing but talent all around us we are all committed to making this event a success.

Here are a few shots from the Shoe Party for Charity that we took, you will get to see our fabulous designers, some of the beautiful decor for this event as well as some of the shoes that the ladies shopped for in which some of the proceeds were donated. To read more about the charity and this events details read the full press release for the Shoe Party for Charity, you may even see a shout out to Sipper Photography!

Thank you so much to Rachelle & Andrea for getting us involved in such a great cause!
