Creative Vision Design & Photography:

Hi my name is Seanny and I'm the designer & photographer at Creative Vision, a design & photography boutique located in Orange County. Thank you for visiting my blog and taking the time to get to know me. I graduated from Woodbury University with a degree in Graphic Design and have worked in the Music/Entertainment Industry and Publishing world since 1999. But because I'm a true romantic, my passion was weddings, whether it was designing for them or photographing them.

Design can play an important role in a wedding. It sets the tone of the wedding beginning with the save the dates, to the to the invitations, all the way to the little personalized tag on the favors. Your wedding is all about you, the bride and the groom, and I can design everything to fit your personality and taste. I believe that every little detail is important, and it can make your guest feel how special your day is to you.

My love of photography began a few years ago when I fell in love with the photojournalism used to capture the event. Having been a bride myself, I know how important photography is to the bride and groom. My goal as a photographer is to capture all of the little moments, emotions and details, and to tell the story of the day through photography. I photograph a wedding, the way I would like my own wedding photographed.

    7 mo Preggers – and feeling quite big

    Thursday, August 26th, 2010

    I’m a bit behind on my belly bump pics, since I’m already 8 mo preggo now. But here is my 7 mo belly pics. I decided to sport the shirt my friend Coleen got me a while ago. She gave it to me for my birthday in April, and back then I didn’t feel quite big enough to wear it. Now it’s my favorite shirt! It’s made by 2Chix. and I get quite the smiles and compliments when I wear it. No real cravings still, although I was on a fruit kick this week. Nectarines were my favorite last week, and now it’s black plum week. And Jamba Juice sounds good to have everyday….but maybe it’s cuz it’s so hot. Funny how summer decides to kick into high gear when I’m super pregnant. Didn’t want to be hot when I only had a little belly bump.

    Baby is growing everyday and getting so strong. The kicks are getting quite intense and he seems to like sticking his little toes between my ribs….that’s not cool. Especially when I’m sitting. So working in front of the computer and especially long drives are not as fun anymore.

    We’re slowly getting the nursery ready. Not quite there yet, it’s just been a whirlwind of busy these days. This weekend will be my baby shower, I’m super excited to see what Kimmy, my BFF, has in store for me. Don’t worry, I’ll share pics of that after. So until then, have a happy Friday!

    Kyan turns 2!!

    Friday, June 18th, 2010

    Last Sunday, June 13th, we celebrated Kyan’s 2nd birthday with a Wonder Pets themed birthday party. I can’t believe he’s already 2, it seemed like just yesterday that he was turning 1, and the day before when he was just a week old! Kyan is turning out to be such a cutie and now he talks so much. It’s a mixture of Chinese, English and gibberish, so it’s pretty hard to understand him all the time. His favorite show is the Wonder Pets, so Alen bought all the wonder pet stuff she could find online. We didn’t even sing happy birthday to him, we sung the wonder pet song….how funny is that. Although I think that’s the only song he knows right now :) Check out some of the pics from the day!

    This is Kyan when you tell him to smile….it’s almost like he’s making a eww face than smiling tho.

    So Kyan has a strange obsession with shoes, mainly high heels, the higher the better. I think he likes the sound it makes when he walks. What really funny is that he actually walks better in them than without them.

    The pinata looks as big as Kyan!

    4 & 5 months Preggers and It’s a BOY!!

    Tuesday, June 15th, 2010

    So I’m a little behind on my tummy pictures. I’m creeping up onto 6 months, and I didn’t even post 4 and 5 months.We are super excited to be having a boy!! Some of the names in the running are Aidan or Aiden (don’t know how I like it spelled yet), Brady, Caden (I know that rhymes with Aidan), Michael Buble Jr., Edward, Jacob and Charlie threw in LaDainian Tomlinson, Optimus Prime and Maximus. Okay so those last few names were a stretch, but you never know right. I’m also still trying to decide on what to do with the baby’s room. All I know is that I think I want it to look more modern than traditional babyish type stuff. But time is flying right by, and the baby will be lucky if the crib gets put together on time….eek. So far the pregnancy has been super good to me. No real morning sickness and everything has been pretty normal. I already feel super big, but I know I’ll only get bigger….sigh. No funny cravings, tho I do love turkey sandwiches on a certain wheat bread with mayonnaise and cucumbers, and potato salad on the side. Of course a piece of chocolate cake and vanilla ice cream always sounds good to me too, but I haven’t caved in on that yet. So here are pics of me and my tummy…stay tuned for more tummy pics soon!

    Kelan’s Robot Party – 3rd Birthday Celebration

    Thursday, April 29th, 2010

    On Saturday, April 17th, Kelan celebrated his 3rd birthday with a Robot party. This year, as always, Kim, Kelan’s mom, went all out. It was a great party all decked out with a ice cream truck, photobooth truck from Mini Mugz (which is a division of mugshots party booths) and popcorn bar. Funtimes!! I think now, Kelan’s parties are becoming the event of the year. We just can’t wait to see what the party will be like. Check out some of the fun pics I took from the party!

    details from the party

    3 Months Prego!!

    Friday, April 9th, 2010

    So if you think I’m just getting fat lately…..I’m not, I just have a bun in the oven :) Although, the diet is off now, and burgers, fries, chips and pizza is a very guilty pleasure of mine nowadays and I’m sure that’s adding to the weight gain. My due date is 10.10.10,  cool date huh, and very easy to remember even with my absentminded brain (who knew a baby can suck a mother’s brain juice out of her!)  This will be Charlie and my first child and we are super excited to take this next step in our lives. The first trimester was pretty easy, no real morning sickness….I did have one bad week, but I think it was just Caffeine withdrawls, which I still get every now and then….man I miss my coffee!! I don’t really have an actual weird craving, I just want to eat everything that I use to limit myself on, like junk food, which is fun for awhile, until I realized I’m not a celebrity and won’t be able to afford a personal trainer after I give birth to lose the weight in a week, like we see on tv. So here is a pic of my sorta growing baby bumb, I thought I was a lot huger than this, cuz I feel super fat already, but in the picture, you can barely see it…..but trust me, it’s so there. Keep coming back to my blog, I’m going to try to be better at blogging and keeping you updated on baby and me as well as the upcoming wedding season.

    Vegas – City Center

    Friday, March 12th, 2010

    I had great plans to do a photo safari while out in Vegas….but for some reason, there was no time and it was freezing out there. So this is the one picture I shot the whole time I was there….sad. But it’s a picture of the new City Center which just opened up this year. It comprises of hotels, casinos, condos and malls. Quite impressive how all that fit in that space.

    Happy Friday….TGIF!!

    Vegas night

    How do you do Vegas?

    Wednesday, March 10th, 2010

    Charlie and me

    Charlie and I just got back from Vegas yesterday. It was another fabulous time in Sin city!! I went there for the WPPI conference, and it so happened that Charlie’s co-workers were going there this weekend as well, so we decided to go a day early and meet up with them on Saturday. We went to the club Haze at Aria…..and that night I realized how old I was and how out of place I was. It was fun to check the place out, but after awhile, I realized that clubbing was not my thing anymore. But the girls from Charlie’s office were a lot of fun, and it was fun to pretend I was in my 20′s again :)

    On our drive up to Vegas, Charlie and I were talking about how everyone does Vegas their own way. And after going there for the past 9 years, together, we definitely have a routine now. Mainly it’s all about eating, we have to eat at all our favorite spots, so that we are satisfied with our trip. First stop is the Mad Greek in Baker, where they have very yummy gyros, and make sure you ask for the pickles too. Afterwards, we would stop by the outlets in Primm, to do some shopping. This weekend I scored some cute boots from Nine West and also a cute wristlet from Coach (cuz mine literally broke that day….and I didn’t do it on purpose either.) Another stop we must do, is have breakfast at the La Creperie  in the Paris Hotel. We always get the St. Louis, which is ham and cheese with the bechamel sauce and the D’anjou crepe which has the pears and walnuts topped with whip cream….quite a treat!! Finally our favorite buffet to go to is at the Green Valley Ranch Resort and Casino. It’s way off the strip but it’s so worth it. We just recently discovered this place when we went with our friends a couple of years ago. We like it mainly because they stir fry your crab and shrimp for you in a spicy, garlic, basil, butter and whatever they put in there that make it a delish sauce. Everything else is good too, but that really is the best part. So those are all our favorite food spots, it just doesn’t feel the same when we don’t stop at all those places.

    On Monday, Kim and I went to the WPPI tradeshow. It was fun to check out all the new stuff that was coming out. I’m excited to add some new products to my business and also purchase some new equipment…..better save my pennies :)  It was a fun getaway with the hub and friends rolled into a business trip…..Vegas is always a fun break from reality.

    Year of the Tiger

    Thursday, February 18th, 2010

    tigerCourageous, active, and self-assured.  Optimistic, passionate and independent. Rebellious, dynamic, and unpredictable. Quick tempered but considerate.  Affectionate but careless.  The Tiger is a natural born leader and symbolizes power, passion and daring.

    People born in the Year of the Tiger are generally well liked because of their charming personalities.  Often, failing at a given task or being unproductive in his personal or professional life can cause a Tiger to experience a deep depression.  Criticism from loved ones can also generate this type of Tiger reaction.

    Tigers are fond of competitions. They simply cannot pass up a challenge.  They may appear cool and are unpredictable, and it would be unwise to underestimate their reactions.  Natural  leaders, they have a strong sense of their own dignity.  They are intelligent, alert, and farsighted.  Good strategists and tacticians, they often have a hidden agenda.  As long as they do not risk their luck too often, and keep their restless nature under control, they will enjoy success and happiness.

    People born in the Year of the Tiger are straightforward and uninhibited in nature. They will never give up no matter how frustrated they may become.  But, they are also full of suspicion and  sometimes will take hasty action.

    They must be aware of how they react to and are affected by the consequences of their tempers.  They should take it a little easier and learn to pace themselves to keep active longer and to prevent early burnout.  They are blessed with flexibility and often recover quickly from illness or pain.

    Some people born in the Year of the Tiger are gentle and full of sympathy.  They are kind, love babies and anything that arouses their imagination.  Others can be stubborn and selfish.  Generally speaking, people born in the Year of the Tiger are fond of playing, and full of enthusiasm and sentiment.  Some are  mercurial.  They can laugh happily one moment, and cry the next.  They will be optimistic, but at the next they will lose their heart totally.

    People born in the Year of the Tiger take pride in being different than others, and generally illustrate their originality best in their homes.  Their homes are usually filled with exotic treasures.  They are fast learners, need challenge and often work alone.  Some tend to change careers more often because they get bored easily.  They are natural born leaders and perform best if working towards positions of power and influence.  They like to spend money, and also to share it.  They can be quite impulsive spenders because they know they can always make more.

    It is interesting that their two main features are rashness and hesitation, a pair of contradictions. If they know how to relax and do things according to the situation, they can become quite successful.

    Tiger Years:  02/08/1902 to 01/28/1903 (Water),  01/26/1914 to 02/13/1915 (Wood), 02/13/1926 to 02/01/1927 (Fire), 01/31/1938 to 02/18/1939 (Earth), 02/17/1950 to 02/05/1951 (Metal), 02/05/1962 to 01/24/1963 (Water), 01/23/1974  to 02/10/1975 (Wood),   02/09/1986 to 01/28/1987 (Fire), 01/28/1998 to 02/15/1999 (Earth), 02/14/2010 to 02/02/2011 (Metal)
