Capture Your Life!


eMotion Portraits Studios in Huntington Beach is a unique photo studio that’s ideal for families and children who want something other than traditional posed images. It works like this: you show up with your family and your children can bring something with them that they’re interested in: like a skateboard, a soccer ball, basketball, ballet tutu, etc.

The photo session normally lasts an hour, but it flies by (even for the kids). The studio is state-of-the-art, and children can skateboard, throw balls, or dance, while hundreds of photos are captured. In a week or so you can go back and watch a slide show of digitally transformed images that capture your family in an unpredictable and fun way.

Then, you can choose from a variety of sizes and frames perfect for what you need. You can see some of their work here.  And I was fortunate enough to experience a photo session with my son Tristan, 18 who was diagnosed four years ago with type 1 diabetes.

And eMotion Portrait Studios is helping to find a cure for diabetes and its complications through the support of research by donating a percent of sales back to Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF) for any bookings made between now and Aug. 31 (photos can be taken anytime before Dec. 31, 2010). Please just mention JDRF.

What better way to enjoy summer than a wine tasting right here in OC? This Thursday the St. Regis Monarch Beach is hosting The STARS of Paso Robles and BBQ featuring over $4000 worth of wine and 5-star BBQ.  Thanks to our friends at, you can purchase tickets for only $50 each (that’s a $100 value!).  Only 50 tickets are available for the event from 7-9:30 p.m. on July 15.

The top Paso Robles wine producers hope to share their amazing wines with Orange County residents in Dana Point at the event hosted by LearnAboutWine.  While enjoying finger-licking BBQ, be sure to look at the silent auction items as all proceeds benefit the TJ Martell Foundation for Cancer and Aids Research.
