This week we took our boy to the Fresno Chaffee Zoo (our local zoo). He had lots of fun running around and for the most part... not paying ANY attention to the animals!
A Day in Our Life- Cayucos Beach / Kerman, California Natural Light Photographer - Melissa Pointer Photography
We live in central California's San Joaquin Valley. And for those of you that have not visited our fair state and only think of blondes, beaches and movie stars when you hear the word "California" nothing could be further than the truth! We are surrounded by farmland here in Kerman and it gets awfully hot in the summertime! However, the beauty of living in the central valley is that you are only a couple hours away from the beach or the mountains and on said hot days we tend to escape it by taking a little day trip.
We left what was supposed to be a day of unbearable heat (107 degrees) and headed to Cayucos where the expected high for the day was to be a beautiful 66! As soon as our two year old saw the ocean he was a happy kid. We didn't even get a chance to put his swim trunks on! He just ran for the ocean and was knee deep before I could do a thing about it. I was a little bummed that the pier was closed for renovations (I guess we'll have to make another trip to get pictures on the pier!) but we had loads of fun splashing in the water.
The best thing about having a husband who is a school teacher is that we get at least a month of summer vacation together. Eric loves having his Dad around the house... basically I'm invisible right now. This image was also featured on "My Beautifully Chaotic Lifestyle" blog for the week ending 7/17/14.

I had a blast at the third annual New Cov Women's Backyard Social and Potluck. An evening of fun and fellowship with some awesome ladies. Thank you for letting me be apart of it!
Mom and Dad took you to the beach last week. You were so excited as we drove up that you couldn't wait to get out of the car. The minute we got out you were pulling me towards the water with you. It was cold, but you didn't care. You wouldn't even wait to change into your swim trunks! So here you are taking on the Pacific and thinking nothing of it. It was a good day.
Hi, I'm Melissa. I am a wife, mother, step-mother, Gigi (step-grandma) and a photographer. I started out as the family member always asked to bring my camera along and it has turned into my life dream. I just love being able to capture moments for others that they can always cherish.This is my little corner to share my sessions, projects, and a little piece of our daily life. Thanks for stopping by!
