Learning to Fly

A flight of fancy on a windswept field Standing alone my sense is real, A fatal attraction holding me fast, how Can I escape this irresistible grasp? This shot was taken today at my daughter’s 1st birthday party.  Our friends oldest child Luke was taking great pleasure in leaping off the stone wall near where […]

Happy Birthday To Me!

Hello?  It’s me, Elizabeth.  Guess what?  It’s my birthday!  I’m one year old today! It’s hard to believe my little one is a year already – amazing how it flies by.  In a year she’s already become a little person with a full personality that walks around and has opinions on things.  She also knows […]

Ready for the Runway

Here’s another shot of my favorite little girl Elizabeth.  She’s just as pleased as can be that she can stand and you can see it on her face.  She also thought the flashes were pretty funny – as well as the noises that Daddy the Photographer was making. Vital Stats: Canon 5D Mark II w/Canon […]


This is my friend Heidi.  We had just finished shooting family pictures and I wanted to try a new lightset for shooting headshots.   I love how it turned out – very dramatic.  It doesn’t hurt that you can’t take a bad picture of Heidi either! Vital Stats: Canon 5D Mark II w/Canon 70-200 f/4L @ […]

Check Out My Pink Dress!

The last time I tried shooting my kids in the studio, it was Christmas.  With my daughter’s upcoming first birthday, it was high time to try again.  Elizabeth had just woken up from her nap, but was in a pretty good mood.  All that changed when we put her in the rocking chair that my […]

Getting Tuned

This is a shot of a San Diego musician getting ready to play at my sister’s wedding.  It was an outrageously difficult place to shoot – heavy shade with bright sunbeams coming through and a light background.  It took a lot of playing with the flash to get the exposure balanced a little better! Vital […]

Mr. Pinfootie

I’ve been doing a number of gameroom shoots over the past year for members of my pinball cult.  They are fun to shoot – lots of color, lots of neat environmental lighting.  This was from a shoot at one of the foremost restorers in the pinball hobby – Mr. Bryan Kelly.  I wanted a nice […]

A Veiled Threat

This shot was taken about 15 minutes before Jacqie’s wedding started.  We were waiting in a small courtyard and taking some pictures since it was a nice location.  We had to move Jacqie to the shade to avoid the hard, harsh mid-day San Diego sun.  The veil acts as a natural skin softener – you […]

Pretty in Pink

This is baby Olivia – the daughter of Beth and Raul.  She’s about 3 months old in this picture and just a sweetheart of a little girl.  When I was in Seattle in February on my way home from Whistler, I had the opportunity to take a few pictures of Olivia for her mommy.  She’s […]
