My client work from 2017

 

2017 was a year where I focused on my family’s health needs so I was really surprised to see how much work I had actually created for clients. I don’t feel like I ‘worked’ one day the whole year. It feels like the older my kids get, the more they need support from me and the more I really appreciate and enjoy my career and the people I get to work with. Maybe it’s supposed to be that way…

cub scout campout

Over the weekend we had a fantastic time camping at Palomar Mountain State Park with Merrik’s Cub Scout Pack 705. The location was amazing. It only took us a couple of hours to get to the site and we were completely immersed in the mountain ecosystem at 5500′ elevation. Our site was shaded by oak, incense cedar and Ponderosa pine. We arrived just as it was getting dark and we set up camp by lantern. When we awoke the next morning…

photography with a purpose

For many years I’ve written about doing photography with purpose. The idea that you can choose what you photograph and consider how you add images to the glut of the photographic collective is a curious perspective. More often than not, I have had a hard time making personal work that basically was the same thing that everyone else has already done like the dramatic B&W landscape with a figure off in the distance, the portrait of an acquiescent girl with pouty lips and flowing white dress…

nature and history

So when we looked at the surf forecast and it said 0-1′ poor to fair, I decided it would be fun to satisfy our minds instead this past weekend. We headed for San Diego on Saturday and spent the afternoon at the pool and the evening at the ballpark. We took the Coronado Ferry to 5th Avenue landing and then walked across the street to Petco Park where we watched the Padres play well until the 7th inning stretch.

prelude to a kiss | artistic wedding photography

This is part three in a series of photographic stories of Jasmine and her twin sister Tyeler and younger sister Lisan. I have been documenting their lives since they were little girls playing in the mountains and streams around Hayfork. Part I: Growing Up In Clover is when they are about 4 and 6 years old at their rural home and at their favorite play areas and Part II: Leaving Home is when the twins are leaving Hayfork for…

a tale of two families

While I was photographing Joe and Ami Marie, she picked his pocket!

I so loved the idea of photographing these two families together. Joe and Chris were best friends even before Joe met Ami Marie (who Chris introduced to each other). Now the kids and Ami Marie and Cara are friends too. It’s like one big happy family. They thought it would be an awesome idea to all meet at Ami Marie’s family’s beach house in Pacific Beach and go…

[photography is] a long weekend

I was surprised to find out that Jim had an extra day off after the Fourth of July weekend. We were able to take the time to go to Balboa Park and Sea World. I swear the kids appreciate their time with him so much more than me because I am just always there, but, I do love how they behave after they’ve had some quality time with Dad so I am definitely not complaining! It’s such a treat…
