New work: Los Angeles, San Francisco, San Diego, a sky ride, a lake and a valley... / by myan soffia

Like everyone else, life has been crazy busy. Trying to balance motherhood and work has been a challenge that I happily embrace. I absolutely LOVE my baby and I absolutely LOVE photography. We had a few mini trips this year and when I get back from a road trip I am like a kid at Christmas, oh so eager to check out my shots and begin editing.
But then my son brings me back to reality, reminds me he is my new boss and I am lucky if I even remember where I put my camera much less get to upload my new images! He wins every time! Who can resist such a handsome sweet man that wants your complete devotion, every day, all day long? :)

I still have tons of shots from our Big Sur trip in October that are not finished. And now added to my growing list are shots from recent trips to Big Bear, Ojai, San Diego and San Francisco. They are teasing me every time I power up my hard drive! However during baby naps these are the ones that jumped out at me the most. So... here are my first rounds and hopefully I will have more completed soon. I have accepted that I probably won't be able to finish the rest until he begins elementary school! :)
