rainy day {blues}

Whether you are a small dog or trying to fly out of a large metropolitan airport (read JFK), rainy days can make you blue.  I was supposed to fly to Los Angeles today, but because of the very rainy weather, my flight kept getting delayed further and further into the evening.   So instead of spending […]

Nanci - A beautiful slide show! Like the background music and use of color & black/white photos. John & Jen look like they enjoyed the photo shoot. They look like they truly treasure & enjoy each others company. This is a great job to capture the essence & spirit of a beautiful couple.

Kelly and Bill eloped! So what would have originally been an engagement portrait session, became tagged as post-elopement portraits. These two are so cute. They are so clearly in love (both with each other, as well as with their sweet dogs Violet and Vita). We had a great time photographing at their house, with their […]

despereaux rescued

My first few days back in Los Angeles, were spent rescuing a little dog found roaming down San Vicente (a very busy street). We called him Despereaux, after the movie mouse, because of his enormous ears! Sadly, he had no tags and no microchip, so we could not find the dog’s original owners. Luckily Jay, […]

Elaine - Beautifully done. Absolutely gorgeous–both people and animals.

Alice - Sarah just reminded me that we actually had a few names for this cutie. It started with Vincent, because we found him on San Vicente. Then it was Freddie Mac, in case he was a foreclosure doggie. Finally, we ended with Despereaux… adorable, brave, and more adorable!

sarah knowlton - freddie mac!
hope you’re happy little guy: sorry ishmael kept trying to eat you while you were visiting.

Cheri Carbaugh - Love it, love it, love it!
I had seen some of your photos at John & Beth’s and liked them. But I’ve only seen a little of your website so far and I’m falling in love already! Awesome eye, awesome composition, awesome technical stuff. I like the first one of just Derek in the grass the best. But in all your shots, I love what you capture.
Kudos!
Smiles and blessings,
~ Cheri (John’s big sister)
