i'm too sexy for my shirt...

...too sexy for my shirt, so sexy it hurts! :-) what does that song bring to mind? right said fred? really bad pop songs from the early 90's? planet hollywood?...do you remember you couldn't walk in the door of the SF location without hearing that song? crazy! well, believe it or not, i'm not referring to any of those things. modeling. that's the topic for the day.

a week ago, sharon and our littlest girl jillie-bean got the opportunity to be models for our dear friends and fabulous photographers, mera and brian. they were in town for the san francisco stop of their wildly popular confidence workshop. these two travel all over the country teaching women about photography by encouraging growth personally and artistically. sharon has been to their workshop twice (here and here) and it has truly changed her life. mine too, actually. we love them! you can see mera's post about the san francisco workshop here...part 1 and part 2.

it was a treat to be on the other side of the camera this time. to observe the teaching and the artistic awakening of these women. my idea was to be a fly on the wall...or a chair while the workshop attendees snapped pictures of my bride and our girl...








but after a few minutes, i just couldn't help it. the bean is so cute and i had to get some shots of my own. sharon kept reminding me to stay out of the attendees shot. "they paid to be here!!!" she kept saying. :-) here are some of my shots.








this one is my favorite. isn't sharon absolutely beautiful! i know that i think so, but everyone kept telling her during the shoot too. the thing is...she's just as gorgeous on the inside. i love this girl....look at her smile. :-)


it was a great day. great to see our friends and great to get awesome images of our girl. it's been so fun watching the images surface from the ladies at the workshop. we love seeing them. thank you all so much!

so, i leave you with this shot. this is my buddy brian...mera's secret weapon. he's fantastic and we get along so well. it's always a good time when we get to hang out. he's a really great dancer too...click here to see. you're welcome buddy. :-)
