James and Melony Family Portraits

I met James and Melony at Valle Vista Park in Chino Hills to take photos of their family for them. They are such a neat family and I thoroughly enjoyed getting to know them a little from behind the lens. The girls chased rabbits around the park and played with roly-polies, and they actually sat still for some photos too. Here are a few of the images I captured that day.

Oceanside Pier

  I stopped by the city of Oceanside on my way home from San Diego yesterday just as the sun was setting.  With just a few minutes on the sand before the light disappeared, I grabbed this shot of the waves washing kelp across the sand in front of the pier.  I intentionally slowed down the shutter speed to let the motion of the waves blur in the foreground to give a sense of the movement that I saw before […]

Steve and Christina Family Portraits

A couple of years ago I had the pleasure of photographing this family to celebrate their daughter’s first birthday. Last week I got to spend an afternoon in the park with them again as we did the same for their second daughter’s first birthday. These little ones are precious, and it was a delight to capture their smiling faces.

Mark and Shelley Family Portrait

I have to say that we do not get down the beach nearly as often as we ought to given how close we live to the ocean.  But last month we got to spend an afternoon on the sand with my sister and her husband and daughter.  Since we were all there together I snagged a quick portrait of their family, and now I share it with you.    

Portraits of Debbie

Debbie is a friend from church.  She needed some headshots for a performance she was involved in, so we met in Creek Park in La Mirada to take the shots.  Here are my favorites from the set.      

Jorge and Ashley Engagement Photos

I met Ashley at the office I work in.  Her Grandmother has been the secretary in the office for many years, and Ashley also took a turn helping out around the office.  She will  be getting married in June to a great guy named Jorge.  I had a chance to meet him and spend a little time with the happy couple at the circle in Orange to capture some engagement photos.  Here are a few of the shots from the […]

Ben and Aimee

Ben and Aimee had a great little backyard wedding in Orange.  I have known Aimee’s parents for some time, and it was a real privilege to be able to shoot her wedding.  Ben is a great guy and a whole lot of fun.  They make a great couple, don’t they?
