Je souhaite que j'├ętais en vacances

I have been listening almost obsessively to Carla Bruni and was inspired to go back to the ongoing overwhelming project I have had of organizing and editing the photos from our trip to Europe.
Here are some of the memories I found.


In love..with Fuji Instax

I have always loved instant photography. Instant gratification has always held an allure for me. My dad also loved photography so every time I go to Florida & Georgia I peruse his stacks of photos that have been stashed away in boxes, looking to collect some that he shot. I got my own Polaroid camera when I was about 10. Since Polaroid discontinued their instant film its become increasingly expensive and hard to find so when Fuji released their Instax I was sooo happy. I ordered a bunch of film and have been shooting like its 1974.

Art Wall

Dorian and I have slowly been turning some of our favorite photos of family, friends, and trips into canvases. The idea is to have the canvases span the entire wall creating one large art installation. We are almost halfway there!
I like the idea for two reasons
1. its awesome
2. it features some of the people and memories
that mean the most to me:


Bailey The Wonder Pom- Pet Photography

My love for Pomeranians grew when my mom brought home a fluffy ball named Brandy. Brandy used to let my five year old niece push her around the neighborhood in a baby carriage while she lazily lay on her back. My niece screamed to the neighbors with delight that it was her baby. I will always remember my mom in the driveway clutching Bailey, tears streaming down her face as I left on my 3000 mile cross country trip to my new home.
When I first saw the puffy golden dream that is Bailey running across my studio I was immediately transported back. Bailey is seriously cute and happens to belong to one of my besties, Maggie. She has the sweetest face. Maggie and I swear she smiles when she poses for pictures. These are some of the shots that I took for the family Calendar 2010.


Bojador - 50th Wedding Anniversary

This blog has a new home. Check out my latest work at: www.capturedbyaimee.com/blog

There is something so regal and graceful about two people who have been committed to one another for 50 years. I was so moved by the love these two shared for one another and their family during their vow renewal ceremony and reception. I share the hope that many of their guests expressed; to have such love so long in my own life!
Here are a few of my favorites from the day!

About Me

My photo
San Diego, CA, United States
I like wine on the porch, my best friends laugh, sticky canoe rides in the muggy South, my husbands heart, Wilco, my dog running in his sleep, capturing a moment that someone will remember forever.
