Had a great evening at the San Clemente pier dodging other family photo shoots and enjoying the sunset. Seriously its not surprising there are so many photographers in the area with locations like this. I feel so lucky to say that this is one of my regular photo spots.
A great family session in Orange. I absolutely love seeing friends families grow through the years and being able to capture these moments for them. And seriously how adorable is little Sophia!?
Hard to believe how fast these kids grow up! From belly to tiny dancer!
Love how these turned out of one of my longtime friends and his awesome family. Hard to believe I have known Andrew since I was four years old and now we both have families of five!
I also had a great assistant for this shoot.
So happy to finally be able to share these. This was the first session of the holiday season and one of my absolute favorites. Not only are they some of the best people: they make my job so easy! Had an awesome time walking around Orange, and even though we got started late with the time change and early sunset: it was perfect!
At one point we were walking past a window with a neon sign and I had to make them stop for a photo. That’s when Abby said “just edit all of these to make it look like I’m in Bladerunner.” Can do.
Well it’s been a long time coming and wow am I bad at keeping up with this thing. My last post was almost a year ago! Things have been really busy in the photography world for me lately and I love it! Here’s just some random trips and photo sessions that I’ve had this year. Can’t wait to share more of the recent sessions after the holidays.
Me and my wife did a whirlwind weekend trip to Guatemala for a friends wedding. No sleep, crazy driving in the city and wonderful friends. It was a great and exhausting trip.
Well we mostly stayed in Bishop and did a ton of driving to and from the foothills of Yosemite. But it was a great and busy trip and family reunion.
Random photo sessions!
Here are a few randoms from some family sessions. And also a couple maternity photos of Alex. Baby boy #3 on the way!
Finally late enough in the year where I can start sharing photos from the Christmas sessions! I’ll share a separate post with a roundup, but sharing this session for now.
This one was a fun shoot down at San Clemente Pier with a coworker of mine, her husband and little Aveline. Aveline was so good for the first 15 minutes then hit the inevitable “I’m over this” wall. Which I secretly love just because those photos of parents pleading with their kids to smile and stay put for just one more photo show the reality of parenting. Also had the boys and Alex with me down there: of course Josh had to proceed to fall over in the waves and make mom run in with her shoes on to get him (hence the photo of a pantsless Josh). KIDS! But it was a great evening at the beach and a reminder of why I can never leave Southern California: photos at the beach in December!
Had a quick garage portrait shoot of my dudes for some mothers day prints recently. Set up some lights, a sheet hanging off a ladder and a cooler too sit on and we were ready for silly faces! I do think it may be time to invest in a real studio backdrop though.
