From Russia with Love

Back in May, I had a young man call me about purchasing a gift certificate for his girlfriend’s Birthday in June. They had never had professional photographs taken as a couple. After asking me lots of questions and having me send more samples of my sunset photography, he finally decided to go with me. This past weekend, we did a sunset shoot at Little Corona. They’re both from Russia, Miska and Natalia. They were so sweet and very much in love. We had a lot of fun on the shoot; they really got in to the spirit of the experience. It was high tide, so we got wet! Their photographs look fabulous and this one is my favorite, the look on Natalia’s face is lovely and serene & I like having Miska in the background out of focus.

Caden's Baptism

I had the pleasure of doing a photo shoot of my baseball baby a.k.a. Caden at his Baptism... I photographed Caden’s Mommy’s maternity session, and now Caden is on my Baby Plan. It is a great experience to be there to capture his first year. When I saw these three crosses in front of the Lutheran Church of the Cross, I thought they were remarkable. This was my first time to the church and such a coincidence I will be back there in October to photograph a wedding. Caden was surrounded by his loving parents, godmothers, aunts, cousins and his favorite photographer as we witnessed his baptism on one of the hottest days in June!!!

My Brother and Victoria Beach

My brother, Tobin, was visiting from Oregon. He decided to spend a week by himself with me (normally my sister-in-law and my nieces are with him). I took time off to hang out with my little brother. We went hiking, saw a movie, went shopping @ South Coast Plaza, and he cooked for me!! This is a treat for me since I don’t cook!!!

Yesterday, I took Tobin to Victoria Beach to take photographs of him at sunset. Tobin was a good sport as I practiced shooting silhouettes of him. I got some amazing shots!!! Here is my favorite from the shoot.

I dropped Tobin off at the airport today, and my home feels so empty here without him.
