Oh how we LOVE Louisiana cuisine!! Recently we discovered the best place for Sunday brunch in the swamp country outside of New Orleans. Speckled T’s Restaurant in Slidell, Louisiana, has an amazing brunch assortment of local, creative dishes like Blackened Red Fish, Seafood Lasagna, Eggplant Roleantini, Jambalaya Eggrolls, Smothered Chicken, Grits & Grillades, Gumbo YaYa… the list goes on! They also have a number of more ‘typical’ brunch choices and a lovely carving station. Dessert includes Bread Pudding although I made a dessert out of the most decadent Bananas Foster French Toast. Their regular menu is great too and it includes a number of other Southern specialties; and their prices are very reasonable… Louisiana Yum!!!
Please excuse the cell phone photos but wanted to share this gem of a restaurant!
What does this have to do with photography? Nothing!! Well, that’s not entirely true. We were on a photography day trip exploring swamps and bayous and, well, photographers have to eat, don’t they?! :-)
We’ll share some swamp photos soon. Meanwhile, we’re back home and our photography studio is in full swing with holiday-time portraits. Contact Inner Vision Images today to book your session before it’s too late for year-end gifts and greetings!! 916.359.7543 or www.innervisionimages.com
Can you believe it? Another year has flown by, just like that! There are less than 30 days left before Halloween, 60 days before Thanksgiving, and 90 days before the New Year…

Inner Vision Images – Capturing the Art of Life, One Image at a Time…
After arriving in Chicago by train, we spent a couple of days there on a quest for tall buildings and great pizza. We found plenty of both. Just across the river from our hotel rose the stunning Trump Tower and from the double-decker HOHO bus we saw many other architectural sites of Chicago. We also spent part of a day chasing the “L”, Chicago’s legendary elevated train, around the city. Pizza was abundant and we enjoyed two of Chicago’s best: Lou Malnati’s and Giordano’s. Yum!!
We also witnessed a doozy of a Midwest storm there. The lightning and thunder were nonstop for hours and the rain was torrential. Very impressive!!
We returned to Chicago after a road trip around Lake Michigan and across the UP (“upper peninsula” in Michigan-speak), to catch a flight back home. (More about that road trip later.) The highlight of our visit to the Windy City was an architectural river boat cruise. The weather was completely opposite what it was like earlier in our trip; we were treated to a gorgeous day! The morning light on the city from the boat on the harbour was lovely and we took that image with us back to California as a lasting souvenir of our visit to Chicago.
Let us capture happy memories for you with lasting images by Inner Vision Images photography! Call us today to reserve your custom portrait session. Photographically speaking, we do it all! Call 916.359.7543 or visit us on the web at www.innervisionimages.com today!
Little more than half a century ago, train travel was THE way to go. Although air travel was “taking off,” the average family still relied mainly on trains for long distance trips.
Well, as much as we rely on air travel nowadays, we still love trains. There’s something magical about a train ride and any time we find (or make up) an opportunity to take one, we’re on! So recently we decided to start our vacation by taking Amtrak’s California Zephyr from Sacramento to Chicago. What a great experience this two-plus day trip was! We reserved a bedroom in one of the Superliner Sleeping Cars which allowed us to sleep like babes and included three meals a day in the luxurious dining car, where we met many other train-and-travel lovers like ourselves. Although our bedroom had nice windows, much of our time was spent in the observation car, where the expansive windows provided the best views. The relaxing trip included amazing views of the Sierra Nevada’s, rugged/rocky Utah, beautiful canyons along the Colorado River, and the “Rocky Mountain high.” The weather varied from blue skies and sunshine to heavy storms, and we had a couple of fabulous sunsets. Arriving at Chicago’s historical Union Station was the grand finale.
Here are a few photos from our journey…
We’re back in Sacramento now, creating portraits to capture magical memories for you! Call Inner Vision Images today at 916.359.7543 to book your portrait session or visit us on the web at www.innervisionimages.com.
About Glamour Photo Sessions
When one thinks of glamour photography, they often think of billboards, calendars magazines and the likes. Subjects are usually portrayed in an alluring or romantic fashion. Photos can be fully clothed or seminude. Although you may think you have to be a professional model in order to have a glamour photo shoot, this is not the case. Photographers make use of their high-end equipment, and artistic expression to create stunning glamour photographs of anyone. Glamour photographs are excellent for marketing rising musicians, models, actresses or actors but are equally fashionable for private and personal use such as a gift for their spouse. Photographers use cosmetics, lighting and advanced airbrushing techniques to produce a flaw free image.
Preparing For Your Glamour Photo Session
Always eat a healthy, but light, meal or snack an hour or so before your photo session. Photo sessions take a great deal of energy, and you do want get tired or irritable. Bring a friend along if it makes you more comfortable most photographers will not object to this if you ask ahead of time. Be sure to wear a clear deodorant that will not mark up your clothing. Check with your photographer if makeup is included in your session. Many photographers will offer a glamour package that includes hair, makeup and assistance with wardrobe. Do not wear perfume, as this can be overwhelming for a photographer. Bring a bottle or two of water so that you stay well hydrated. Remember, most of all, to stay relaxed and enjoy yourself. Be natural and leave the rest to the photographer whose job it is to enhance your strong points and create a captivating photo by painting through his/her lens.
When Steve and I returned from our last Christmastime vacation, I couldn’t stop telling everyone about the highlight of our trip, our visit to Bosque del Apache National Wildlife Refuge in New Mexico. Every year, thousands of wildlife and bird-watching enthusiasts congregate at Bosque to witness the annual migration of Sand Hill Cranes. With the vast numbers of cranes and geese, the “fly-ins” and “fly-outs” each morning and evening are absolutely phenomenal. For that short period of time the sky is filled with the resonant calls of hundreds of thousands of birds. It’s something that can only be experienced fully “live” but we’d like to share a glimpse of this amazing spectacle with you…
At Inner Vision Images we strive to “capture the Art of Life, one image at a time.” And as much as we enjoy capturing wildlife with our photography, we take great pleasure in helping people capture the art of human life and memories. Call us today to find out about our custom portrait services at 916.359.7543!
