I have known these guys for some time. I was super excited when they asked me to shoot their family photos. They informed me that they have not had their pictures taken since their engagement 7 years ago!!! It was about time. They are such awesome people and so fun to photograph. They both have amazing style. Their dogs are SOOOO adorable. Bear (the black portie) has so much personality. He has a crazy obsession with his "bumper toy". "B-boo", the white fluff ball was super mellow and has a bigger fluffier head than her entire body! Thanks guys for allowing me the opportunity of hanging out with you!
One would think that snapping a quick picture of your canine pets adorned in christmas decorations would be a simple matter. I was sorely mistaken. It took 1.5 hours and three people to get this simple shot for my holiday card. Too Fraiser (the dog on the left) the fire behind him was the gate to hell and he was not going to get near those enclosed flames. Louie, being distracted by a rustling wreath around his neck and having a fear of camera lenses would not look at me. Finally after treats, coaxing and Fraiser remembering that he always lays by the fire, we got a nice shot. I hope everyone is kicking off their Christmas season with a bang! I know I am... Things are only going to get busier, which is awesome! More posts to come...
I had the unique experience of spending the thanksgiving holiday up in Yosemite National Park with Braden and his parents. It was SO beautiful up there despite the frigid 1 degree temp!! We hiked to waterfalls, played games, visited and had a really great turkey dinner at the Lodge. It was very fancy! I am so thankful to have such amazing family and friends!
Remember that darling family in the orange grove? That would be the Williams family 1 year older!! I was so honored and excited when they asked me to shoot their family pictures this year for the second time!! The Williams family have the MOST amazing children, which sure says something about the parents right? They wanted a relaxed backdrop so we decided to shoot around Balboa area. The day was beautiful and the shoot went perfect! Thanks Williams family.
I had the wonderful experience of getting to know Donna through work at lululemon. Donnas son Cole, is an extraordinary yogi. At only 17 years old, he surpasses many people who have been practicing for years. Like Donna says, "he is an old soul"! He has a calm about him that makes him unique for his young age. Did I mention that his moves are amazing! We had a wonderful time down in Salt Creek. Thanks Donna and Cole for choosing me to captures Cole during his practice.
