Childrens Photos at Balboa Park

This morning I had the pleasure of photographing Joey and his Mom at Balboa Park. Joey will be four soon, and he did a great job of posing and saying things like "cheeeeeese", "ice creeeeeeam" and "piiiiiiiza". Great job Joey!

Here are a few pictures from the photo shoot:

Arizona Hummingbirds

Spent a few days in Tucson Arizona this week and had an opportunity to go visit my little friends at the hummingbird aviary. Didn't have a whole lot of time but did manage to get several great shots.

Family beach photos at the Hotel Del Coronado

This afternoon I met with the Perez family for their portraits at the Hotel Del Coronado and beach. We started at the courtyard for some photos around the gazebo - individual shots of the kids and then a group photo.

Then it was out to the beach!

Newborn Baby Photos in Studio 03.22.08

This morning we had the pleasure of meeting Makenna - a beautiful one month old baby girl. She fussed a bit and needed the usual snack breaks, but she was a real trooper and fought her way through it.

Here are some of our favorite photos from the photo shoot:

San Diego High School Senior Photos at the Beach

Yesterday I had the privlege of photographing this gorgeous, fun young girl who is in town visiting from Texas. We did the photo shoot at the Hotel Del Coronado, both at the hotel and out on the beach.

She was super easy to work with, and getting a beautiful natural smile out of her was as easy as "beeep beeeep beeeeep beeeeeep" (inside joke).

Here are a few photos from the session. First a few quick photos in the courtyard.

Then out to the front of the hotel for some pictures on the stairs and deck.

A close up photo.

Beautiful sunset (it looks much warmer than it was). You photo buffs would want to know that this exposure is SOOC, no adjusting.

And finally a one second shutter speed for some silky water.

Our Son at Coronado Beach

Ok, I lied....I said it was time to get back to business, and stop posting photos of our Son. Well, sue me. Today was his first ever trip to the beach, and what was I supposed to do, leave the camera at home????

Beach portrait photos at Windansea Beach

Well tonight was a first - a beach session at Windansea Beach. It was great to get out of the usual Coronado / La Jolla Shores beaches and try somewhere new. Great location, and I counted three other Portrait Photographers on the same small beach.

Lots of rocks that were great for posing. This great young couple was a lot of fun to work with, and even willing to get wet (I got the impression that the water wasn't too warm?)

Here are a few photos from the session:

Newborn baby photos

Ok, enough photos of our Son for now, it's time to get back to business. This evening I photographed beautiful little Ann Marie, a newborn baby girl just two weeks old. A little fussy at first like many babies, but settled into the modeling gig very nicely.

Here are a few sneak peeks from our photo shoot:

Sick of him yet???

Another beautiful warm day in San Diego. What better time to shoot even more photos of our Son. This afternoon we went to the local park, where he can watch the big boys play baseball and basketball.

Here are a few photos.....then it's back to your regularly scheduled program.

Our Son at the San Diego Zoo

We do so many "business" photo shoots that from time to time we forget to take photos of our own child. This morning we went to the San Diego Zoo for a couple of hours (love having that yearly pass). While in the petting zoo I got some great photos of the Little Man (he's starting to look like a man, darnit!)

For you photo buffs, these were shot with a Canon 30D, and the 28-135 IS lens. Camera in Manual mode, 580EX flash in ETTL mode, FEC set to -1 or -2/3. He's either in full shade, or has the sun at his back in all of these.

Newborn baby photos, studio portraits 03.01.08

This afternoon we had the privlege to meet and photograph this beautiful little nine day old baby boy. He was a bit fussy at first, but a couple of snack breaks later and it was "milk coma" time. He slept through most of the session, but we did get a few photos with his eyes open.

Here are a few samples from this newborn photo shoot:
