Chloe: Modeling Swimsuits at Pacific Beach

Chloe: Modeling Swimsuits at Pacific Beach

  Here are a few photos I took this past Sunday of Chloe modeling swimsuits at Pacific Beach, San Diego. Chloe, visiting California for a few months, contacted me to get some lifestyle photos of her in the beach. She was not planning to stay here long so she only...
Washington Family Outing

Washington Family Outing

  It seems that no matter what one does for a living, there is never enough time. I left a corporate analyst job years ago because it was taking my precious photography time. Well eight years of running my photography business and I still find myself short on...
Stephany & Gustavo’s Engagement Shoot in Manhattan Beach

Stephany & Gustavo’s Engagement Shoot in Manhattan Beach

Stephany and Gustavo are Fresno natives looking to get married here in beautiful Southern California and apparently they love their beaches because the engagement shoot is in Manhattan Beach and they are getting married at The Hyatt Regency Huntington Beach Resort and...
Albert & Michelle

Albert & Michelle

When Michelle booked me for her wedding we never actually met because she lives in San Jose and originally she did not plan on having an engagement session.  This meant we would not meet until her actual wedding day, so I was thrilled when she recently emailed me...
Jo Ann & Angelo

Jo Ann & Angelo

I was supposed to photograph Jo Ann and Angelo last week, but because the weather forecast was for strong showers we postponed it for this weekend.  The day could not have been better, the storm clouds were looming overhead but they did not rain.   I wish I could have...
Shayna & Matt

Shayna & Matt

Today I had the pleasure to finally meet Shayna & Matt.  We spent the afternoon in old town Claremont and later visited their alma mater, Claremont College.  Matt works at the university and invited me to try the “best” rice crispy treats in the world.  I thought...
Katherine

Katherine

Recently, Katherine contacted me because she needed new pictures for her agency.  Since I am always looking for new spots to shoot, I asked Katherine and her mom to find me a nice spot in Escondido, and I would do it.  They did just that, as we went to trail near...
Ashley

Ashley

Ashley contacted me a few weeks ago wanting to do a nighttime shoot.  I have done a few shoots after dark, but that is usually from wedding that are running late, never on purpose.  They came out well, however; next time I am asked to do a nighttime shoot I will have...
Tracy & Walter

Tracy & Walter

Walter and Tracy wanted to shoot their engagement photos somewhere a bit different from Long Beach.  We tried our luck in downtown LA, starting at Union Station where I tried my luck shooting some long exposures without tripod.  Not too shabby....
Taylor in the Old School House

Taylor in the Old School House

Taylor had approached me before to do a shoot, but I have been very busy.  Recently I had a small break, and I posted a casting call.  I was very fortunate that Taylor was available.  Because Taylor’s portfolio is filled with dramatic studio sets, I decided to...
Cathy at the Beach

Cathy at the Beach

I want to thank Cathy for being such a great sport.  Due to some miscommunication, Cathy showed up to the beach wearing some very nice high heel shots and some great dresses.  It would have been perfect for a street shoot, not so perfect for walking around the beach....

Tawny Studio Series

I was really looking forward to Tawny’s shoot because I was going to use a Mamiya 645Pro that I recently ordered on eBay.  Turns out the seller still has not shipped the camera and I ended up shooting digital only.  I was a bit down because I wanted to try some...
