it’s the most wonderful time of the year…

In case you haven’t noticed, I have not had any updates to my blog for a while.  (I just added a bunch.) As any portrait photographer will tell you, the month or two before Christmas is absolutely crazy! Lots of portrait sessions, print orders, greeting cards, albums, etc. keep me frazzled right up until Christmas.

Anyway, I decided just to put some samples from a the many portrait sessions together in one post rather than having a separate post for all the portrait sessions.

abigail

Abigail is the daughter of some very good friends of ours. I have taken photos of her since she the day she was born at the hospital.

Well, now that she’s a little older, she isn’t scared of me anymore and  actually seems to like having her portraits taken.

We just walked around Balboa Park and founds lots of places to shoot.

My Family Portraits

Having been born and raised in Sacramento, CA, my aunts and uncles asked me to shoot their portraits during our trip up to Sacramento for Thanksgiving. It’s always fun shooting family portraits for my relatives. Needless to say, I have a big family, including my 97 year old grandmother!

We had 65 people at Thanksgiving dinner and that was just one side of my family and not everyone was there!

vanessa and michelle’s engagement portraits

Going to northern California for Thanksgiving “vacation” involved 4 portrait sessions over our 5 day trip.

Although Vanessa and Michelle live in San Francisco, they will be getting married in San Diego next year. they wanted their engagement portraits done in San Francisco and also wanted the Golden Gate Bridge as part of their San Francisco session.

They had actually gone to the same location the day before and the weather was so bad, you couldn’t even see the bridge! It was also rainy and cold. Fortunately the day we arrived, the weather was incredible. It was relatively warm and not a cloud in the sky.  With such great weather, great subjects, and great location, I could have shot there all day…

sydney’s bat mitzvah

I have to say, Sydney and her family sure know how to throw a party! I had the pleasure of hanging out with Sydney and her family for this three day event.

The party at the La Jolla Hyatt was simple unbelievable. The party started off in the pavilion while the crew from Pacific Events and Wayne Foster Entertainment had about 3 hours to transform the ballroom from a plain room to an incredible themed party. There was a corporate event in the ballroom which ended at 5pm and the room had to be ready for guests at 8pm! I was amazed at how quickly the transformation took place.

Needless to say, once the party started, the 170 kids and 200 adults sure had a great time!

There were so many activities for the kids there are too many to name here. Tatoos, jewely making, air brushed clothing, two photo booths, make your own dancing head videos, etc. I have never seen anything on this scale.

Congratulations Sydney!

gina + antonio

I had photographed Gina’s sister’s wedding earlier this year, but when Gina contact me to shoot her wedding, I was already booked for a Bat Mitzvah. So we had our associate photographer, Pamela, fly up to northern California to shoot their wedding at the Palm Event Center in Pleasanton, CA.

As you can see, Pam did a great job! I don’t know if I could have done any better myself…

autumn + michael

What a unique wedding at the La Valencia Hotel! It was clear that Autumn and Michael are not your average couple. It was especially obvious when they came out for their “first dance” and pantomimed a skit to the song “You Better Be Good to Me” by Tina Turner. They had choreography and everything!

Thanks to Emily Smiley, the coordinator, and Kathy Wright & Co. for the beautiful flowers and decor.
