Kamee June’s Family

There is this photographer that I ADORE and her name is Kamee June!  She is a rock star photographer that does portrait and wedding work beautifully (hard to do equally well, in my opinion) and holds workshops all over the United States.  I stare at her images for hours at a time.  She is Jessica Claire’s “go-to” gal and when she books fancy-schmancy weddings in New York (click here to see) and such, Kamee June is who she brings along (lucky girl, green with envy here).  HOWEVER, what I LOVE most about KJ is that she is really DOWN TO EARTH and hilarious.  When she emails me or posts comments on my blog, I can’t stop laughing.  It is always an honor when another photographer asks you to take photos of their family and it means a LOT to me that I got to do this for Kamee June.  This was a gift to her husband and the grandparents in these photos are her in-laws.  I have got to tell you this story about how I got to this location (Balboa in Orange County).  So, I was vacationing in Carlsbad and Kamee had told me to meet her at the pier.  So, I figured, I have a GPS, so I’ll just input the address and I will just follow the directions to the place.  Easy enough, right?  WRONG!!  First of all, there are TOLL ROADS in Orange County and you can’t pay cash or by credit card.  You have to have some dumb pass thingamajig to get on that particular highway.  Problem is, the GPS didn’t allow me to take another route besides that particular road.  So after going here and there (and mind you, I am directionally-challenged, yes I made up that word, you get the picture), I get to Orange County.  Sigh of relief, right?  I continue to follow the directions and next thing I know, it leads me to the WATER.  I call Kamee, and I tell her, the GPS is telling me to go over the water and there’s no BRIDGE OR ANYTHING?!!  Then I notice that it says to get on a ferry, so I call Kamee and I tell her that the GPS is telling me to get on the ferry.  So Kamee then tells me to get on the ferry.  In my car?  Yes, in your car.  How was I am supposed to get on the ferry in my car and go over the water.  LOL!  Oh, the drive was a bit stressful, but oh so worth it because on the other side was Kamee June, waiting for me as I drove onto land again.  We were cracking up so hard, it was hilarious!!  I don’t think I will ever forget that day, haha.  You have a beautiful family, Kamee, and I can’t wait until I see you again!
