Immersed in Winter

Is there anything better than SNOW? Yes there is!!!!

SNOW in Southern California!!!!

Okay, I realize that for most of the United States, snow is a regular thing. And for some its even dreadful. I recently returned from a trip to NYC, where salt is being prepared for the snow storms. I get that in those areas snow sucks! You have to unfreeze your car every morning. You have to plow the driveway, and walkway. You have to wear sweaters inside your house, and itchy scarves, gloves, and hats are your friends! I get all that.

But I live in the Sunshine State, the Golden Coast, or as we call it here "The hottest place on earth!"

Am I exaggerating? I think NOT! You have to understand, it's ALWAYS HOT here! Well at least for me it is. As a matter of fact, this is the first REAL WINTER we have had. ( By real winter I mean we have rain=real California winter)

But one of the perks of living in Southern California is that we pretty much have the best of both worlds. As soon as we get a real storm, our mountains and foothills get covered with a beautiful while carpet of snow. Hence we have the snow and beach all in one state! And you don't even need to drive far, they are about 2 hrs apart from each other.

This past week we had some major storms, and so it's only right that my family and I head out to beautiful Big Bear Lake and enjoy some winter fun! While it was SUPER crowded, I must say, it was so worth it!

Here are some highlights from our trip.

"Happy Snappin"

Montrose-Verdugo City Annual Oktoberfest 2015

Montrose Newborn & Family Photographer, Pasadena Newborn & Family Photographer, Glendale Photographer, Los Angeles Newborn & Family Photographer, Portrait Photographer, best photographer. Guten Morgen.  Guten Tag. Guten Abend. and Gute Nacht!

This year's annual Oktoberfest was sure to bring the beer and the sausage! More importantly it was sure to bring neighbors, friends, and families together! But I won't be writing a whole post on Oktoberfest, because I was not asked to. What I was asked however is to photograph the event.

Without further due, The Montrose-Verdugo City Oktoberfest 2015!
