San Diego family beach portraits

Last night concluded a crazy week of nonstop sunset beach sessions. The week between Christmas and New Years is always very busy for us, and this year was no exception.

This was also our last photo shoot of 2007.....phew! Now it's time to start alllll over again!

Here are a few photos from last night's beach session.

Family beach photography at the Hotel Del Coronado

Last night I had a great time photographing the Kies family from Arizona and Wisconsin. A group of 14 - Grandparents and three families. Our photo shoot was at the beach at the Hotel Del Coronado here in San Diego.

We had a phenominal sunset, probably one of the 3-4 best I've photographed in 2007. A lot of high clouds and beautiful color just after the sun went down.

Here are a few photos from the session:

50 years and still going strong....

This evening I had the distinct pleasure of photographing Hugh and Jo, who are celebrating 50 years of marriage. What a wonderful couple! We had a perfectly overcast evening, which unfortunately means no colorful sunset - but wonderful lighting!

Here are a few samples from the session, thank you again and congratulations!


Carol and Matilda - a studio session

This afternoon we had a studio session with Carol and her bird Matilda. Matilda has been Carol's companion for 20 years, and was recently diagnosed with cancer. You'd never know it, because Matilda was a perfect model for us, and really hammed it up for the camera.

Our pets truly are family members, and we really appreciate Carol asking us to capture these photos for her. The photographs that we shot this afternoon will be with us forever.

Here are a few samples from our session:

And finally the star of the show:

A Merry Christmas from Caught on Film Photography

2007 has been a wonderful year for us, we've met so many great people, had so many wonderful customers, and captured many beautiful photographs for many families.

For us, the week before Christmas is always the calm before the storm. The week between Christmas and New Years is always one of our busiest, as it is again this week. Many families from out of town and even out of state come to San Diego to vacation during this week, and many of them contact us to do their family portraits while they are here.

This year we have nearly every single day booked, the only exception is Thursday December 27th. So if you know of anyone looking to have photos done next week, that's the only date that we have available (at least for beach sunset photos that is).

We'd like to take this time to wish all of our friends, family and customers a VERY Merry Christmas and a safe holiday season! Here's to the great year that was 2007 and an even better year in 2008.

Newborn baby photos

A few quick samples from yesterdays newborn photo session at our studio:

Company Christmas party 2007

This was the second year in a row that we were hired by Inovio to shoot portraits at their company Christmas party. This year I decided to mix things up a bit and not only shoot some more traditional portraits, but also did some down angled closeups as well. I also used the red backdrop this year instead of the tan one from last year.

Here are a few samples.
