Meet Andrea. She’s six and she’s a future superstar. She loves to act, sing and dance! She’s quite the personality. We talked about music and Justin Bieber and how certain dresses age her (her words,not mine lol). This little girl is hilarious! She needed head shots so I came to her rescue. Check out the images from her session.
It has been almost 3 weeks since the tsunami hit Japan. Have you done anything to help them? If not, help me, help Japan. Everyone can do their part, and I am trying to do mine.

I met Carlos & Nora 3 weeks before their wedding! They were sent my way by a past bride and I was so happy to be their wedding photographer. Their wedding happened to be the same day as my birthday (and they were the first wedding of the season!), so I was happy to spend that special day with them! Here are a few moments from their day. Enjoy!
Their ceremony was in Spanish, and while I can understand it more than I can speak it, I did pick up a few pieces here and there.
These two were smiling because the pastor was reminding Carlos that he had to put Nora first and make her feel important.
I love when couples plan to have some extra time between their ceremony and reception. It gives them a chance to soak up the fact that they are MARRIED! And also get some great pictures too!
At the time as a baby/toddler I didn’t realize how important it was when my mom or grandpa would watch me from afar and snap a few frames here and there. After getting their film (yes, film!) developed they’d show me prints of myself. Fast forward years later I love going through the old boxes of 4x6 prints and watching how I have grown.
People now are so interested in getting digital negatives on DVDs I wonder what they do with the images once they leave my office. Do they actually print out their images? Do they create an album? Scrapbook with their images? Or do they just upload images online for others to see?
I highly suggest all my clients do something beside uploading their images online. Take the time to print out a few of your favorite images from your session. 4x6, 8x10 or larger make for great conversation pieces on the wall and just think of how much fun it’ll be to go back in a few years and dig out the box of prints documenting your lives most prescious moments.
What am I getting at? From now on, all of my sessions (portraits and weddings) will include prints (two 5x7 prints for portrait sessions and 1 8x10 print for weddings). Also if any of my past clients haven’t gotten around to printing actual prints from that DVD now is the time!

What is family? Everyone has their own definition, but for me family is any group of individuals that come together to live,love and uplift each other. Here is Wendy and her family. It was a super nice day and I spent some time getting to know Wendy, her girlfriend and their daughters.
You might remember Shari from her maternity session a few post ago. Savannah is finally here, and two weeks early! She was the cutest and let us know who was boss during the shoot. In between feedings she gave us some great shots! Here are a few from her session!
