Some of my favorite moments from 2014. Top row left: Taja emulating Carrie Bradshaw in an ode to Sex in the City, Eliana’s Pink horse, Green Bench outside Bluebird, Kings Road London, Debra at 9 months, Dave on the piano at Sonic Fuel Studios, Carolina headshot taken on rooftop, London Eye Capsules, Night shot of […]
Has there been an explosion of babies on the earth? Or at least in Southern California? I dunno but seems like everywhere I go, everywhere I look or every person I talk to either has a baby, or is going to have a baby or is thinking of having a baby. Eep. Anyhow, […]
I’ve been experimenting with lighting. Natural light photography is great and beautiful and I love it but I wanted to see if I could control the situation. Also, I want to try a continuous lighting setup. No flash for me! With the advent of LED and CFL lighting why would anyone want to mess with […]
Marissa is making a big jump in her life. She’s going to live in London! She’s going to grad school! This is BIG. When we met to do one of our regular photo shoots she was positively glowing. So happy for her and can’t wait to shoot her in London!
Marissa is like Malibu Barbie only different. We’ve done a number of photo shoots. All for fun. But now we get to catch up a little. I used to work with Marissa but she left a couple of years ago to pursue other interests. She is my muse. We met at the Malibu Country Mart […]
Kristina had her baby. Ivy. She’s totally adorable and looks like a cross between Mom and Dad. Which is always nice. Janet and I went over and took some photos of her. Double team. It was way more fun and productive to do it together. Janet really knows how to […]
Wow she’s huge. But she looks great! Actually the baby is big not Kristina. She actually looks totally like herself with the exception of the giant b-ball in her stomach. Starting my name sending campaign. Fingers crossed for a Thanksgiving birth!
I got to shoot Kat again. This time she asked if I could shoot her raw and edgy. So we met down in Venice. My original idea was to go to the Venice Art Walls. They’re awesome. Originally they were just leftover walls from the Venice Pavillion from the 60’s. Graffiti just appeared on these […]
I might have mentioned this before, but there’s been a baby explosion in my office the past few years. In a mere four years there’s been 9 babies born and there’s one more on the way. 10 kids! So I took photos of Elaine’s little one Elle here. She’s a cutie and was only 10 […]
Elaine has been one of my muses for a while. She’s beautiful and poised and fun. I took photos of her and Chris as an engagement session down in Santa Monica in 2010. Actually the day my father died. Not when we were shooting but late that night. So I will always remember that. They […]
This will be Marley’s first Christmas! I took some snaps of Marley in utero (he he) and then when she was a newborn. She is so adorable and is just now pulling herself up to stand! Kat says she was a little fussy today. I guess she was napping and hadn’t really woken up yet […]
This keeps happening at work. Two people show up with the exact same outfit on. We’re now keeping a record of it. We used the Diane Arbus photo of the identical twins as inspiration. More to come?
Becky asked me if I’d like to take some headshots of her son Chris. He’s an actor and attends a performing arts high school. I’ve met Chris before but hadn’t seen him for years. I think he was like 9 years old when I saw him last. Well he turned 15 on Sunday, so it’s […]
Abdias is Haydee’s cousin. He and Yadira are getting married in June. I’m going to be their wedding photographer! They are both very sweet and very much in love. The day they got engaged Abdias had developed a whole scheme with photos and clues taking Yadira through where they met (church), her favorite food (ice cream) […]
Kat is a singer/songwriter. A really talented one. I saw her perform a few months ago and met her then. Very sweet young lady who is having a baby. Her baby will be Marley Jolie. Sweet! We met at a park in the OC on Super Bowl Sunday. She is also super photogenic and gorgeous. […]
Janet and Haydee asked if I could do a family holiday shoot for each of them. They are both married and have kids. Really cute kids. So we met at Johnny Carson Park in Burbank where there were about 4 OTHER photo shoots going on at the same time! It’s a small park but there […]
She said she found a cool polka dot wall nearby. So I asked her if she wanted to get some pictures taken there. “OK”, she said. So we got a couple of peeps together went out and ate at Carmines then headed over to the wall. After a few shots wherein Carolina looked just like […]
