Happy 21st Birthday Michelle!!!

My baby sister just turned 21 last Saturday! So I guess she's not quite a baby anymore, but it's hard for me to believe that she's officially an adult when she's been my kid sister her whole life. She's now studying hard to follow in our dad's footsteps in becoming a dentist and I couldn't be more proud of how she's turned out. She's got a good head on her shoulders and a good heart. What more can you ask for?

We spent a few days in LA together celebrating her birthday. She and Drew are die-hard Laker fans, so we went to watch them play an insane triple overtime game against the Suns!
Pregame giddiness:

We spent some time hanging out at Venice beach. Definitely some characters there. Here's one of them. (Haha! Just kidding Michelle!) What a beautiful girl she is! (No bias here.)

Loved these.

I got pulled into one of the shows and had a guy run and do a sideways flip, not just over me, but seven other people as well! (I'm third from the right.)

This wall was different back in '08 when I did Eleah & Lee's engagement session in Venice Beach, so the change had to be documented.

We stopped by the Getty Museum one cloudy afternoon. I am in love with their landscape architect! I think we spent more time outdoors than indoors there.

Of course, no trip to LA would be complete without a stroll down Rodeo. Work it Shell, work it!

And my all-time favorite image from this whole LA trip. Michelle was just holding her hat down so it wouldn't fly away, but I love how it turned out.

Love you Shellgirl!
