Newborn photographs 02.27.07

Last night we had the pleasure of meeting Siena, a beautiful two week old baby girl. You wouldn't know it from these photos, but she wanted no part of being photographed.

But with patience and persistance, we finally wore her out and were able to get some beautiful, peaceful photographs (although I'll bet in her dreams she was still yelling at us, he he he).

Maternity photography 02.25.07

This afternoon we had the pleasure of photographing Megan, who is expecting a baby girl very soon.

Megan also brought along her sister and Mom, so that they could be in a few of the photos as well. First Grand baby, and Mom is a cryer, so hopefully she has a box of Kleenex handy as she's reading this (ha ha ha).

We captured a lot of great photographs using various poses and lighting techniques. We're looking forward to sitting down with you to view your photographs very soon. Thank you again for hiring us for your maternity and newborn photography!

Studio portraits 02.25.07

This morning we had the pleasure of photographing a young woman who is surprising her man with some beautiful photoraphs to celebrate their anniversary.

There was a very specific shot that she had in mind, taken from an old Levi's advertisement. We tried to capture that shot on two different backdrops, I think we did a pretty good job of duplicating and possibly even improving on the original

Then it was time for some fun, playful photos. Some taken in his very large sweatshirt:

And some in one of his tee shirts:

High School senior portraits 02.21.07

Today I had the privilege of photographing a young woman for her senior portraits. We did both a studio session and a beach session at the Hotel Del Coronado.

As usual, I shot way to many pictures, and will have a heck of a time whittling them all down to the final cut. Photographing a beautiful subject, and taking a lot of photographs makes for a lot of computer time.....soooo many good ones to choose from.

Several clothing changes, and several location changes at the Hotel Del Coronado also helped us get a great variety of images.

Senior portraits are one of my favorite types of photography, so I really enjoyed doing both a studio and a beach session. Thank you again for hiring us, I can't wait for you to see the photographs in person!

Pregnancy photography 02.17.07

Today we photographed a wonderful couple who are expecting their first baby, a boy, at the end of March. The name is a secret, so ssssssshhhhhhhh! I am very fearful of what they might do to me if I even so much as hinted at the name. he he he.

Mark and Marion were wonderful to work with, and we're looking forward to photographing little baby XYZ in a few short weeks.

Thank you again for choosing us to do your maternity portraits, we'll meet with you soon to review all of your photographs.

Hotel Del Coronado Beach Photos 02.12.07

This afternoon I had the privlege of photographing a young man at the Hotel Del Coronado. We do a lot of sessions at the Hotel Del, and love the location because there is such a variety of backdrops.

We started at the front of the hotel, with some photos in the greenery area, then moved to the beach for sunset and ocean photos.

It never ceases to amaze me how different this beach is every time I go there for a photo shoot. Always such a wonderful variety of shooting options.

Maternity Photos 02.10.07

Todays maternity session was with Mat and Pam, who are expecting their first child in late March. Pam found our ad in The Bump magazine, which she picked up at Babies R Us.

Mat and Pam are very excited to be parents, and can't wait for their daughter Elsie to arrive. It was very easy to get them to smile, just ask them for their daughter's name - ELLLLLSIEEEEE they said with a smile. ;)

We will also be doing Elsie's newborn photos shortly after she is born, we can't wait to meet her! Thank you again, Mat and Pam!


Maternity photography 02.08.07

This evening we had the privilege of shooting some maternity photography with Jamie. Jamie is happily awaiting her beautiful baby daughter, who will be here very soon.

We used the black and marbled tan backdrops, common for maternity photography. As usual, we tried several various lighting techniques, using from one to three studio lights, including two honeycomb "spotlight" filters (my new favorite toys).

Jamie also brought along a cool piece of jewelry which you will see here. It worked beautifully over the tummy.

These are just a few of my personal favorites. But I can tell you that Jamie is going to have a very difficult time choosing her favorites, when she sees all of the great photographs that we captured during her session. Thank you again Jamie, and we'll be seeing you and your baby girl very soon!
