Graduation is just around the corner which means it's time for senior portraits! Yesterday I trekked out to Ramona to shoot Ted just in time to have pictures ready for his graduation announcements.
What I loved most about this shoot was the setting... his family has such a beautiful home.

With the number of amazing photographers out there, it's no secret or surprise that it's difficult to get your name out there. A few fellow photographers had suggested that I join RedBubble and Uber to increase my exposure. I wasn't too sure about RedBubble, but I loved the Uber layout and options.

I dug around RedBubble for a little while and finally opened my account on April 5.
I searched like crazy for Uber, but unfortunately it is no longer online. I couldn't just give up on #90, so I decided to open a Flickr account instead. I opened my account on April 14, which means that #90 is done!

The Jaeger Family

Last weekend I had the pleasure of photographing the Jaeger family at their home in Del Mar. I love it when families include pets, it makes things that much more fun and lively. This treehouse is by far the best I have ever seen. It even has power!

Cow Parade

A few weekends ago I took a trip with my Dad and sister Chele to see the La Jolla Cow Parade. We ran out of daylight before running out of cows, but we saw some very interesting art and had lots of fun walking around downtown. I don't remember all of the titles, but I'll fill in what I can."Psychedelic Cow" and "San Diego Night Life". I love the dress attire in the window."Digesting the News" and "It's a G Thang"Two views of "Designer Jeans". She looks like she could be in one of those Happy Cow commercials. After all, this is California.

Tail end of "Tribal Cow" and title unknown.

I have several more shots of cows that I photographed at night. I'll save those for another post.

Happy Easter!

I've been spending as much time in the studio as possible and recently needed a model last minute after the model I'd been planning to work had a scheduling conflict. Andy graciously agreed to pose for me and was a total trooper all evening. Now, I'm not saying these will be the last of the portraits. I'm certain I'll take several more in the future; but this does mean that #28 is done!

Carlsbad Flower Fields

My Dad and sister were down here last weekend for a short visit. Our series of adventures started with a trip to the Carlsbad Flower Fields to see those crazy Rannuculas in bloom. These flowers are so unique. I'd never seen anything like Rannuculas until moving to San Diego but I absolutely adore them. And of course I just had to share.

Prints to be on Etsy soon. Enjoy!

Chele & Charlotte

This weekend I had the chance to do a very fun shoot with my sister Chele and her car Charlotte... well, maybe Charlotte. The name isn't final, but we're going to go with it. Here we have Chele sliding off the car. I wish I had captured the look on her face when I first told her I wanted her to lay on the hood. It was hilarious.I did however catch the "princess wave".
Proofs are here!
