It has been an exciting week! 
I'm thrilled to give you a glimpse of what has been happening behind the scenes here. For the March 2015 issue of Sacramento Parent Magazine, we were able to meet-up with our friend, Jill Carmel at the Sacramento Zoo for a cover photoshoot. She is a talented photographer who knows how to get the perfect shot, even when working with both kids and wild animals. Thank you Jill for the fantastic cover shot above and story photo below. 

We had the most amazing models. Both models are five years old, and happen to have birthdays within a couple of weeks of eachother. What fun! Our dapper little boy is all decked out for his photos. His favorite color is green, therefore the shirt choice. And his favorite animal just happens to be a giraffe! It was definitely a big day, meeting his costar, Chifu, a male Masai Giraffe who lives right here in Sacramento.

You'll have to check out the story I wrote for this issue, too. The Sacramento Zoo offers a wonderful daily giraffe encounter program for just $3. Definitely one to put on top of your to-do list. And bring your cameras, you won't want to miss the moment.

Here are a few more snaps from our day taken by my husbandOn the right is Jill, who is working on getting just the right cover shot. On the left is Tonja, our Sacramento Zoo representative who made it all possible. And, in the middle, are our cover model's siblings that couldn't wait to see it all happen.

Have a wonderful wrap-up to your week. You can pick up a copy of the March issue of Sacramento Parent Magazine by March 1st. And be sure to stop by to see our friend Chifu along with the other giraffes and all of the animals at the Sacramento Zoo!
