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.

  • Bubble Birthday Party – Aidan turns 2!

    October 11th, 2012

    Oh my goodness, I can’t believe another year has flown right by. When they say it kids grow up fast, they weren’t kidding! My little baby boy….not so much a baby anymore has just turned 2 on September 26th and we had a fun Bubble Bash for him.

    I was toying around with some different birthday themes. I wanted to do something that I knew Aidan would like and was age appropriate for him but yet fun for everyone at the party of all ages. So I came up with bubbles! Simple and fun. I decided incorporate all aspects of bubbles….the bubbles we play with, bubble baths, and the popping of bubbles. I picked a color scheme and the rest fell into place. Check out all the fun details from the party.

    Here are the invites. Even though bubbles are clear I still wanted lots of color, so I designed the invite with colored bubbles. You can order these invitations at: www.invitationparlour.com for matching favor tags, signs, etc, contact us at info@invitationparlour.com

    For the dessert table we had a variety of treats that was associated with the word POP. Such as our Popcorn bar, Cake Pops, Tootsie Pops, and Rice Krispies Treats, because they go “Snap, Krackle and Pop” Of course we also had cupcakes and birthday cake, which I got at It’s A Piece A Cake Bakery. They have the best Black Forest Chocolate Cake. I had the baker make the cake in a aqua blue frosting and I added the rubber duck and glass balls I found at Michaels to make it look like bubbles. For the background I cut out various size circles and made the birthday sign with my Silhouette. I also hung a bunch of clear balloons on the ceiling too look like bubbles.

    For the favors, I had bubble bath, bubbles, and rubber ducks all packaged into a cute little popcorn box.

     

    Some of the other fun food items that were associated with pop was our popcorn chicken and soda pop. I also made a blue punch that looked like a bath with rubber ducks floating in it. The recipe for the punch is at tidymom.net

    So of course for the kid’s activity I had bubbles. We bought a bunch of different bubble wands, and I had a bubble refill station, bubble guns and even a football that creates bubble when thrown. I also had a bunch of inflatable balls in the yard for the kids to throw around.

     

    Aidan loves to dance, so we had the kid pop music station on.

    Here’s Aidan with his cousin Kyan.

    TWO!

    Freeman Family Photos 2012 – Laguna Beach, CA

    September 27th, 2012

    You know almost a year has past if you see the Freeman’s family portraits posted onto my blog :) I have had the greatest pleasure in helping Lisa capture her family memories for the past 4 years. Not only is Lisa a client now, but she is truly one of my greatest friends.

    The first photoshoot was Lisa and Nick’s engagement/first family pictures with Addison. I remember when Addison was just about Jackson’s age at the time. Now look at how big she is already! And Jackson was a just a newborn when we took his first pictures, and now he’s such a little man. We had a great time at the beach, and we have pictures to show for it. Check them out! Click here for more pictures in the slideshow.

     

    Cute brother and sister moments.

    I love the funny face that Jackson is making in this picture.

    Mustache & Bowtie Party – Tavian’s 1 month celebration party

    September 13th, 2012

    When my business partner and best friend Justina told me that her little sister, Le My  was having a baby, I was so excited for her. I have known her since she was just a kid and now she was having her own baby!

    So on May 12th, we celebrated Little Mister Tavian’s one month birthday. In the asian culture, instead of having a big baby shower, they have a one month celebration to celebrate after their arrival. I’ve been wanting to throw a party with mustaches and bowties so I suggested we have a little man party. It was so much fun trying to come up with manly items to do for our food table and also cutting out all the mustaches and bowties. And of course let’s not forget the argyle pattern we had everywhere.

    Here is the invitations we designed. You can also change the wording and it would make the perfect baby shower or birthday invitation. You can purchase these at www.invitationparlour.com

    And here is the table we designed.

    We had root beer, mini man-wiches, bow tie pasta salad, tiny tater tots, bubble gum cigars, candy cigarettes, candy mustaches, cupcakes, oreos, chocolate chip cookies, and even mini slim jims.

    We had white bags for guests to put their treats in and we added buttons to them so they looked like white shirts, then guests got to pick out a bowtie to add to the top.

     

    And here is the guest of honor, little Mr. Tavian himself :)

    And here is the new happy family.

    Navin and Andrew testing out the Root beer with their mustache straws.

    And Nayla & Briohny are making sure the mustache dum dums tasted ok :)

    And here’s the little man in my life, Aidan, taking a picture with his new friend Andrew.

    Sesame Street Party {Jackson’s 1st Birthday}

    May 17th, 2012

    Saturday, April 14th, we celebrated Jackson’s First Birthday. Lisa and I have been planning this little soiree for quite sometime and finally it was all put together. You’ve probably seen Lisa’s picture quite a few times on the blog, just because I’ve designed everything for her wedding, her birth announcements and now her son’s first birthday party. It’s been quite an honor being a part of this wonderful family’s life. And the best part is that I’ve gained a new friend in Lisa, who loves parties as much as I do :)

    So on with the details from the party….

    First off, the invitations. We did a bi-folded 5×7 wide folded invitation, that had pictures of Jackson from throughout the year. I think it’s always fun to incorporate the pictures from the year, just because babies change so much from the day they are born till they turn one.

    To order this Sesame Street invitation, or any other custom inviations, contact us at info@invitationparlour.com or call us at 951-241-0417

    Dessert Table. We designed the pennant banner & signs and labels to match the invite, for the various delicious dessert Lisa had. Colette’s Events, designed the cake, chocolate elmo pops & cake pops….it was soooo cute, and delish!!

    Lisa ordered a bunch of cute favors from etsy, including the sesame street frames, Elmo & Cookie monster pails, and the Zoe ponytail headbands. She also got the cute “Jackson” street sign there too.

    Both Elmo & Cookie Monster came to the party to join in the fun.

    Aww, look at that cute little smile.

    Jackson really likes birthday cake :) mmmmm yum, yum, yum!!

    Here is Jackson with his dad Nick, who, one is very handy, he made the second “Jackson Street” sign & two, makes the yummiest hamburger sliders!

    And here is big sister Addy hanging out with Elmo

    Here is Jackson with his mama, Lisa!

    And here is my son, Aidan, who was one of the guests, dancing to the music :)

    Meet Holden Hess {Newborn Photoshoot}

    February 10th, 2012

    Meet Holden Hess, he was born on October 5, 2011. His mama, Doris,  is a good friend of mine. I even took her engagement pictures, click here.

    Holden is now about 4 months old now, but I took these pictures when he was about 1 month old when I got to meet the little guy in person. I know, it took me long enough to post these. But he is such a cutie pie, I just had to share!

    He’s probably thinking…”mama, what am I doing in this box?”

    I just love cute little baby feet!
