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!
The main reason I can no longer do mini shoots. How am I supposed to stop taking photos when I have such a great location and subjects!? It’s always a gamble with beach photos and sunsets. A lot of times it can be overcast and cold. Well Southern California cold. But there are times when the lighting and everything just seems to come together. I absolutely love those moments when I’m shooting and I am immediately excited to see the final product when I get home. Got to shoot a wonderful family with two little boys who were awesomely adventurous and smiley (thanks to ice cream bribes). It’s evenings like these that make me realize why it costs so damn much to live where we live.
Got to do some photos for a good friend and her wonderful little family for a special occasion: her son Phineas’ first birthday smash cake. Mom made the crown (and cake!) and I was seriously dying of cuteness. Not to mention there is something just so tragically funny about a kid crying his heart out while at the same time shoving cake in his mouth.
Got to try something a little new recently: a walk around Mission San Juan, which is always nice, and a photo shoot for little Isabel’s First Holy Communion. Unfortunately it was a busy Saturday so it took a bit of photoshopping to remove some background tourists, but the isolation with her in the white dress and the huge old archway was just too perfect to have random people in the final shot. Although I have been to the mission many times it was the first time I had actually gone into the chapel, and I’m so thankful I did! Could have shot in there for hours! It had some really amazing architecture and lighting. Looking forward to revisiting the mission for some personal shooting. Maybe on a weekday 😉
