Every year I visit Rosecrans National Military Cemetery on the day after Memorial Day. I get there just after sunrise and wander around the cemetery shooting photos for about 2-3 hours.

On Friday the Boy Scouts come out and put a US flag at each and every one of the over 90,000 graves. It’s an amazing site, and since they don’t take them down until later on Tuesday morning, I literally have the whole place to myself for a couple of hours.

Here are a few of this year’s photos. If you’d like to see a slideshow of photos from 2007, you can click here.

Rosecrans National Military Cemetery Memorial Day 2008


May 25, 2008

While we are enjoying our families and our freedoms on this Memorial Day Weekend, let us not forgot the brave men and women who enabled us to have these freedoms. Thank you to everyone who has sacrificed their lives for this country, and to those who are currently spending time away from their families to protect our freedom.

Here is a slideshow of photos that we took at Rosecrans National Cemetery last year. We hope to get plenty more this year as well:

Tonight I had a senior photo shoot at the Hotel Del Coronado. We spent a good deal of time in the courtyard, then moved out to the stairs and then of course out to the beach.

Here are some sample photos from tonight’s photo shoot.

We started off with the letterman jacket and some sports shots.

Then over to the gazebo.

Next we change from casual photos to a beautiful yellow dress on the beach:

Last night I had the privilege of photographing this beautiful couple at the gorgeous Presidio Park in San Diego. The weather was perfect, and we had the whole place to ourselves. We got a ton of great photos, here are some samples from the photo shoot.

We started with some formal portraits down at Palm Canyon:

Then it was up to the top of the hill to the main area of Presidio Park:

And finally a quick change of clothes for some more casual photos:

Next a family with a young boy whose Daddy is in the Navy:

The men and women who protect this country – and their families – are all heroes to us! Thank you for coming in today!
