The Family of Shinn Photo in front of the camera | Reedley, CA

September 16th, 2010

Earlier this week I had the coolest opportunity to photograph Andrew & Lisa Shinn along with their hilariously lovely children. Most likely, if you’re from the Reedley and surrounding areas, you know the name of Andrew Shinn; him and his wife own Shinn Photography located in downtown Reedley.  Well, a few weeks ago they contacted […]

 

Earlier this week I had the coolest opportunity to photograph Andrew & Lisa Shinn along with their hilariously lovely children. Most likely, if you’re from the Reedley and surrounding areas, you know the name of Andrew Shinn; him and his wife own Shinn Photography located in downtown Reedley.  Well, a few weeks ago they contacted me and asked me to photograph them!  What?!  I was nervous right at that very second.  I’ve never photographed another photographer except when I was a student at Brooks Institute where I would use my peers as models.  But now being in the Photographic Industry, shooting another photographer, my knees were shaking to say the least.  Plus, for whatever reason, I had this brilliant idea and I threw it out there shocked to get a green light from Andrew & Lisa.  Well, the brilliant idea was to get up and do their family shoot at sunrise!  Hello, they have a 1 1/2 and 3 1/2 (or is Liam 4 now?  I forget) year old children.  Still, we did it.  I don’t know if I was more nervous photographing other photographers or if Andrew had me beat with his shaky nerves from being in front of the camera.  Either way, we both sucked it up, had some fun, enjoyed an AMAZING sunrise, played Red Light, Green Light, then ended the family shoot with some Doughnuts-To-Go.  Now that’s a good morning.  Let me just back track for a sec, when I say the sunrise was amazing I mean I’ve never seen the rays of light stretching out from the mountain top into the morning sky like that.  It was incredible.  Then the sun peeked up over the hills and the light was absolutely brilliant.

Anyhow, here is a little storyboard from the shoot.  Enjoy…

The Klassen Family Portraits | Pismo Beach, CA

January 19th, 2010

In Pismo Beach, CA this past weekend I got to shoot my long time friends, Jeff & Kelley Klassen and their two sons. Growing up Jeff and my families would go camping for a week during the summer every year. I have such amazing memories from those trips and it was so fun to meet […]

 

In Pismo Beach, CA this past weekend I got to shoot my long time friends, Jeff & Kelley Klassen and their two sons. Growing up Jeff and my families would go camping for a week during the summer every year. I have such amazing memories from those trips and it was so fun to meet their two boys. It’s pretty strange to see their oldest boy because he reminds me so much of Jeff. And their youngest is almost an exact replica of his Grandfather. I’m so thankful I got to see them and witness the extreme love they have for one another.
