geri guest blogs


geri from me+him is adorable & a photographer, so she gets lots of photo space today. if a girl could have a crush on photographs it would be on her's. every. time. also she doesn't know it yet, but she is taking mine & trav's anniversary pictures. one day when we get ourselves out to california. anddd we'll probably just bunk at her place while we're at it. but she doesn't know about that yet, either. we're quiet, kinda. {smile}
-------------------------------
1. Hi guys!! I'm Geri and I am a photographer (was that a little on the AA side? Did anyone else just imagine saying "Hiiiii Geri" in response?). Anyway—I'm married to my best pal in the whole-wide-world. His name is Jason and he's going to be an eye doc when he grows up. We're both from iddy-biddy towns in Idaho but we're currently living in Orange County and this winter has been the warmest of our entire lives (heaven)! I have to say, it was a bit of a shocker the first time I drove on the freeway and there were like 8 lanes. Where I come from 2 was a big deal. But it has been our greatest adventure and we love love love it!

2. What inspires me??

People. I have thought about this one and wrote out sooooooo many different things. But as a photographer, it's the people I photograph who inspire me. Getting to know them, talking to them, laughing with them, capturing who they are and their stories—it's the best job in the world!

3. Favorite Memory.....
K, weeeeell, my brain isn't running on all cylinders this morning so instead of favorite memory let's go for the last happy memory I can think of....... hmmm. I got nothin. Let's come back to that one.

4. Favorite things. I got lots of favorites!

Tacos—truck style. Love them every. single. day.
Colorful nail polish makes me feel like a lady.
Farmer's Markets are the bombdiggity.com
I think earrings are the best accessory.
San Francisco! LOVE that city!!
Red heads with freckles (that's right ;)
My camera is my second best friend in the whole world.
Reading good books.
Dark chocolate, ooooo so smooth and delicious.
Target, H&M and Amazon.com

3 1/2. OOHHHH! I just thought of a good memory! It's a good one. Might be my favorite ever ever. So Jas and I had just moved to CA and I had called my darling, little Grandma Fern for some reason or another. We chatted for a while, catching up on our current events and then the time came to say goodbye. And then we found out that saying goodbye can be hard to do! I said "I love you Grandma!" "Love you too, Dear." "Alright, talk to you later." "Yes talk to you later." "K. Love you." "Love you too, bye bye." "Bye Grandma." "Talk to you later Doll." "Alright. Love you." "Love you too." "See ya." "See ya." "K. Love you. Bye." "Bye bye Doll."........... And this went on for a very very very long time. And by the end me and my 84 year-old grandma were having a giggle fit. I don't have any idea how we finally ended it.

4. Today I'm wearing:
So I'm not going to pretend I'm a super awesome fashion blogger—because, let's face it, I'm totally not. But Lauren asked me to share what I'm wearing and I'ma do what the girl says......... and you better believe we had ourselves a good time honing our inner-fashion-blogginess. So here are a few of me and one of Jas, because he can't help how much the camera loves him (and yes, this is his beard's debut on the interwebs. Oww-Oww)!
H&M, head to toe—promise I didn't mean to do that.

5. Advice?

Be confident. Be happy. Be you. And always do your very best

Peace out party peeps! ♥
