Guess what I want for my birthday?

Ok so it could really be a lot of things one namely the Canon 5D mark ii. You have no idea how many times a day I dream about going full frame and have the ISO options to die for. I think my friends even know the specs by now by just listening to me talk about it. In addition to the 5d I also dream about owning a classic car or truck. A few weekends back I went to a classic car show along Route 66 and this is some of what I saw.

So if there are any high rollers out there some of these were for sale, hint hint.

I love roosters too mommy!

I think the heading says it all. Ha ha!

Searching for your little sticky models

On Monday October 13th I am looking for a few models between the ages of birth to 12 years old. In exchange for their time the family will receive one free 8x10 and 25% off my already super low print prices. If you think your little one has what it takes to be a model, email me a picture.

These sessions will be primarily done in a urban setting (Newport Beach area) but might break out the studio lighting if I get enough requests.

Art in SF

One of my friends Nacco loves to take pictures of graffiti. So while I was in SF walking through the streets I came across some graffiti that caught my eye. So this is for you Nacco. I hope you like.

How do you swing?

Yesterday I went to my nieces 4th birthday party. The moment I got there she asked me to take some pictures of her swinging on the swing. I have have seen a lot of kids in my day swing but I have never seen anything like this before. I would like to say that she has my creative side to her. Happy Birthday Miss M! After the party was over we asked her if she had a fun time and she said yes, but added that turning five next year will be even better. I think it has something to do with going to school and leaving the boys behind.

This was her princess outfit for her princess party, yes no shoes. I don't think the girl even knows what shoes are. She might have been born in Utah but she is California through and through.

PS. I have been tracking the stats for this blog and it has been really neat to see all the places you guys live, but don't know who you are. Feel feel to give a shout out in the comments section when you see something you like.

Climbing to the sky

A few weeks back a few friends and I went rock climbing in Malibu. The last time I did this was several years ago. This climb also made me realize that a few extra pounds really catch up to you when you are climbing up the side of a rock. Thanks K for the motivation to climb to the top.
This was fun guys we should do it again.


Yep that little speck on the side of the rock holding on for dear life is me!

Shiny metal!

View from the top.

Another view from the top.

K climbing to the top! Hurray!

The Pro Nat! Just another day in the park for her.

Windy streets of SF

This weekend I took a short trip to SF. Whenever I visit this city it reminds me a bit of home, the weather, streets, and people.

Down by the River

While in Washington I did a session for kids of an old friend. After being kicked off private property we opted to try the last location on public property. :) It was great getting to know you guys!

littlest Sis

On my last trip to seattle I attended my littlest sis wedding reception. Isn't she just beautiful. Oh Lowie you have grownup to be just a lovely woman. I remember playing school with you and teaching you how to read and do math at the age of 3 and 4 and how much fun we had carrying you around like our baby doll.

Hiking back in time

Over Labor day weekend I went camping with some of my girlfriends, yes I do camp but for very limited amounts of time, and then headed to Roberts Camp and hiked back in time. Not knowing anything about the hike I was constantly amazed as we hiked through the forest. Growing up in the pacific northwest I have been in many thick forests but nothing as cool as this. As you walked through the forest you stumble upon cabins that date back to the early 1900's each with their own character. Below are a few of the 80 cabins that are still standing that were part of the original 310 that started as Roberts Camp. For more information on Roberts Camp and the unique world that it is apart of see the below link.


Did I mention that after being very brave and getting in the waterfall that I was greeted by a water snake. EEK!
