We are having a real snow storm today! It’s the first one Darla, my pomeranian puppy, has experienced. Franny loves to play in the snow, and it seems that Darla is right in there with her. Even Lulu, the pug, joined in a little game of chase today!
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 dogs, and finally at a great breakfast cafe. When we finished with the photos, we had a delicious brunch! Thanks for the great meal!
Congratulations Angel and Rick!
These two had a wonderful wedding, attended by a lovely and lively group of family and friends!
While helping us with this image, Angel’s mom joked that this kiss is “Mother-in-Law Approved.”
Jeanie Lee Toon did an amazing job with the flowers. It was really cool how they made different color bouquets for the bridesmaids. The vivid colors really pop on this white grand piano.
I love the red flowers in Angel’s hair, as well as her adorable bright red shoes!
Charming is the best word to describe The Victorian, where Angel and Rick got married! The food is amazing, the staff is very nice, and everything ran like clockwork. Not to mention, it makes for a great backdrop to this romantic photo of Mr. and Mrs. Newly Married.
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, a great guy, took one look at Despereaux, and fell in love. Jay is giving this lucky pup a new forever home with his two other dogs, a chihuahua and lab-mix that were also rescued. Look at those sweet eyes!
A big thanks to Giovanni, Sarah, Joy and all of the chihuahua rescue organizations that reached out to help. You are a mighty village!
My sister’s family makes a very scary Halloween house! They have witches that brew curses with ingredients like bat wings and vampire blood. They have a haunted pumpkin patch, and creepy monsters (like Dracula) that will come out and grab you! Here is just a glimpse of their amazing work!
At my house, we keep things pretty simple… dogs, pumpkins, and candy. I can’t remember the last time I carved a pumpkin; but I didn’t let that stop me from my dream of carving a wolf howling at the moon. And I must say it was a big success… so many sweet trick or treaters took the time to tell me how much they liked my pumpkin.
Since Miller has two very fun, loving, and sometimes goofy parents, it is clear he has a great start in life. In fact, at just ten months old, Miller is the happiest baby you could ever meet.
Times do change. I was still shooting with film, when I photographed Kristin and Matt’s wedding several years ago. Now, I primarily use my digital cameras.
Kristin called me to photograph their beautiful daughter Lucy, who recently turned one. This little bundle of cuteness sure does love to run! Look how a little game of chase has her bubbling with joy.
With all that big and magnificent one year old energy, I think everyone in the family has a real appreciation for nap time!
One of the lovely perks of being a wedding photographer is I’m often called back to photograph the new generations… aka the babies. While in San Francisco last week, I was lucky to have three such jobs!
I photographed Brook and David’s amazing wedding in Idaho. They now have two beautiful children, Grace and Xavier. Here is a peek:
Wow! I had such a great time photographing Monica and London’s wedding, at the gorgeous Westin Hotel, in San Francisco. There are so many great shots, but here is a quick peek at some photos that caught my eye. A big thank you to my dear friend and associate photographer Michelle Montalbano for shooting with me!
