My mom is Producing another play at Dinuba First Baptist Church.  This year I volunteered to go over and take pictures of the characters for her.  The women are playing high school aged students and are having a lot of fun with the production!  We had a great time taking their pictures and I got to photoshop to my hearts delight!

“once a bride” wedding photo project with Jennifer Eileen

 

A few weeks ago Robyn volunteered to pull out her wedding dress, slip it on, and model for my project.  She was willing to do pretty much anything and we had a great time!  Robyn, you’re awesome!

The Carey family portraits | Hume Lake, CA

August 24th, 2009

Such a lovely family.  They met at Hume and would never have thought that one day, what was it, 9 or 10 years down the line, that they would end up falling in love!  Now here they are with two little ones and loving everyday that the Lord blesses them with.  There really is so […]

 

Such a lovely family.  They met at Hume and would never have thought that one day, what was it, 9 or 10 years down the line, that they would end up falling in love!  Now here they are with two little ones and loving everyday that the Lord blesses them with.  There really is so much joy in this family.  I was so pleased to be able to take their family pictures and capture some candids of their babes.

The Geer family portraits | Hume Lake, CA

August 24th, 2009

Years ago Derek and Amy met at Hume Lake Christian Camps.  Over the years they’ve both worked at Hume, left Hume, and returned to Hume.  If memory serves me correctly, they got married in the Fall of 2003.  Their son came along just two years ago and he’s been a ball of energy since day […]

 

Years ago Derek and Amy met at Hume Lake Christian Camps.  Over the years they’ve both worked at Hume, left Hume, and returned to Hume.  If memory serves me correctly, they got married in the Fall of 2003.  Their son came along just two years ago and he’s been a ball of energy since day one.  They are absolutely wonderful and I was so happy to be able to take their pictures for them.

A nice woman came over to help us get some pictures with Hudson looking at the camera and smiling.  I didn’t see this, but she put her Chihuahua over my head and made it dance.  Glad I didn’t look up!  But, we got some great pictures and the dancing dog worked!  Hudson sat still and all three of them laughed and enjoyed the show for a minute.

Derek and Amy are pretty wonderful… so is Hudson.  Enjoy…

Annie the Schnauzer Dog portraits | Reedley, CA

August 23rd, 2009

As some of you may not, and others of you might not, I just don’t like dogs.  In fact, the idea of ever owning a dog is completely foreign to me.  I’m not sure where my dislike for dogs came from.  My mom loves dogs, we had dogs growing up, I even loved my dog […]

 

As some of you may not, and others of you might not, I just don’t like dogs.  In fact, the idea of ever owning a dog is completely foreign to me.  I’m not sure where my dislike for dogs came from.  My mom loves dogs, we had dogs growing up, I even loved my dog who I named Friskie… but at some point along the way (maybe it was when I was five and my grandparents German Shepherd bit the skin of Marisol’s forehead off) I stopped thinking they were cute.
I don’t like their smell, the wet nose, the licking, the shedding, the hair, when they shake after they got wet… oh the list can go on and on!

BUT, I got to shoot my friends dog for them on Saturday.  And surprise, surprise.  I liked the dog.  She didn’t lick me, she didn’t nudge me with her nose, she didn’t smell, she didn’t shed because she had hair, and she didn’t bark or lick herself inappropriately.  She was rather cute and I even pet her.  So maybe it was a breakthrough but the next dog can send me back to my normal self.

Anyhow, meet Annie.  She’s cute.

once a bride ~ deborah in san jose, ca

Yesterday I had the opportunity to shoot my friend Deborah up in Campbell, CA.  She was amazing!  I thought it was hilarious really.  She put on her dress and off we went to the Farmers Market!  It was truly incredible.  More pictures will come but here are a few from the coffee shop we visited.

August 15th, 2009

Alright… here’s a few shots from the first shoot… I am rushing to head out the door so maybe I’ll pull them up later and do a bit more to them.  But so far, a nice start I’d say. Thanks Monica!  You’re lovely, encouraging, and absolutely wonderful.

Tomorrow I get to start my new project of having fun with bridal pictures.  I twitted about how all I’m doing now-a-days is that I look at wedding blogs and I’m itching to start taking more pictures.  So I asked if any of my friends wanted to get their wedding dresses out for a photo shoot and I was shocked at the quick response!

So fun.

Heading up to Clovis, I’m going to shoot a really good friend of mine in her gown.  Sadly, she doesn’t look back at her wedding pictures with gushing joy and enthusiasm.  Although the pictures are beautiful, they’re just not her style.  Too traditional.  I hope to capture her being herself in her dress!  I want her to have images that she can cherish and look at with love and fondness.  Selfishly, I also want to push myself and not only take beautiful pictures but I want to start shooting a little more raw, more dirty… but not dirty dirty, but rugged dirty… grungy perhaps explains it better.  Make sense?   Maybe only to myself.

Anyhow, shoot one of Once a Bride begins tomorrow.

Stay tuned…

Justin & Sarah Maternity Shoot | Morgan Hill, CA

August 3rd, 2009

This little family is adorable.  Okay, so Gracie isn’t born just yet but the shoot was about her anyway.  She’s one blessed babe to have parents like hers.  They’re home is full of love and laughter… a perfect enviornment for any child.
