I was excited to photograph the first act of Annie in one of our dress rehearsals before going on stage myself! It was a wonderful experience that I will remember fondly for a long time. Feel free to contact me for higher resolution photo options.

It was very exciting to witness such happiness out of such a little girl this year. We celebrated Christmas with our new Mary Clare for the first time and it did not disappoint. While you can be sure that many more photos were taken, these are the highlights. They not only depict a few on Christmas, but some family shots at the beach as well as a day at Disneyland on New Years Day, an Ayotte family tradition of which we are proud to be a part.
While this zoo is no where near the size of the San Diego Zoo or the Safari Park, it is very close and intimate. Not only that, but they have a great group of primates that are happily bouncing around their enclosures. It was a blast to take the family out to see some exotic animals up close, and to be able to get some fun shots up close and personal. While the cages made it a little difficult to get clear shots, there are still some that I will always treasure, but that is mostly because the “models” were so entertaining.
Last night the family gathered to celebrate our Mom’s Birthday. We had a private and intimate celebration at Avant, the restaurant inside the Rancho Bernardo Inn. If you’ve never been, as I had not, you must give it a try! We were served inside the show kitchen, and received a multi-course gourmet meal that was basically created right in front of us by Chef Leah. It was a beautiful setting accompanied by incredible food and fellowship. Happy Birthday Mom!
Check out this awesome Time Lapse of the preparation of our first course. It’s amazing to see how much work goes into every presentation.
