The Best Christmas Gift: Multi-Generation Family Photos!

This year we have several multi-generation sessions booked right after Christmas, and we’re SO excited! I also think this is such a great idea, and a great way to take advantage of family being in town for the holidays. Not to mention, a great gift idea!

We have a couple spots available still for Wednesday, December 28th at Rancho Las Lomas for morning sessions, and a morning session at San Juan Capistrano. Email us soon if you’d like to jump on the bandwagon!

Custom themed portraits available!

For the past few years I have been making these themed portraits for my kids’ birthday invites and it has been really fun to set up backdrops and lights and figure out how to make the photo look as cool as possible. With my wife nudging me and the response I have gotten I think I should probably open this concept up to others and see if anyone else would be interested in having them done as well. Here are the photos I’ve done and some of the original set photos to see what we start with.

This was the first time I did something like this for Josh’s third birthday. (music themed) Thankfully he was totally game for posing!
Spider Man! He was so obsessed with this costume he totally wore it out. Really glad we got to use it for this shot and I even printed it out as a poster and its still hanging in his room!
The set up shot. Pulled my closet door off and laid it in the front yard. Probably should have cleaned the mirror first but oh well!

The Jedi! He had a broken arm in a cast for this one hence the awkward saber hold. With an Obi-wan costume and moms sweater draped over his head I really love how this one turned out.
Older brother finally got his chance! With Covid and his choice to go to Lego Land instead of a party he missed out on photo edits for a few years. This one was tricky with his desire to be a very specific character from Star Wars. A character that has only been seen in cartoons and is usually wearing a helmet how was I gonna pull this off!? Well I figured the best I could do was photoshop his head onto an existing photo. Thankfully I found this perfect image that’s actually a 3D render of the character. Contacted the creator and he was kind enough to let me use the photo! Once again used a mom sweater for the neck and it worked perfectly!

Looking forward to the future years of making these and hopefully I can get to do some for people other than my own kids!

Taking the Plunge

Written by Alex

To say 2020 has been a year of change and demanding flexibility for almost everyone is an understatement. In our little home we’ve had to adjust to distance learning schedules and losing our primary caretaker for our three boys (among all the other COVID stuff). 

It was pretty clear from the outset that we wouldn’t be able to manage long term to both work full time and give our boys the time and attention they need. As a couple, we’ve often discussed the idea of Jeff working for himself, doing photography, carpentry, and art. Sitting in a cubicle every day has never been his goal, but it gave our family the stability we’ve needed for the last few years. 

Given our current need for someone to be home with our boys, we decided now was the time to take the leap. It’s been a stressful couple months (mostly for Jeff who has had to manage still working and kids full time) while we talked through our options and made sure we could do it without putting our family under a big financial strain. 

As scary as it is to leave something familiar and stable (Jeff was with his company for almost ten years!), we’re so excited for this adventure. We hope you’ll join our adventure by thinking of us for all your photography needs (or custom wood/art work!), referring us to your friends or family, or simply by liking/sharing/commenting on our social media posts. 

Looking forward to whatever the future holds!

COVID Mother’s Day

Oak Canyon Engagement Shoot

Sometimes you have all the time in the world to shoot and sometimes there’s a full wedding going on and you have to park a mile away and race against the dying light.  This photo shoot was the latter.

With the sun quickly setting on the valley, we had to keep running up the hill to catch the last bits of light.  Thankfully, it worked out! Glad I had a great couple that would let me put them in uncomfortable spots and risk getting poison oak (or who knows what else!) while trudging through the weeds…in sandals.  Can’t wait to shoot the wedding!

Price Family 2019

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.



Abby, Paul and Lando

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.


2019 Round Up

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!
