Growing & Glowing

Growing - I finally was able to meet and visit with some local photographers here in San Diego. Donna and I have been wanting to do this for awhile now but she's bumming that she wasn't able to make it this time. As for me, I so wish it hadn't taken so long. The people I meet were generous with their ideas and tips. Not to mention inspirational.

Glowing - I can't imagine meeting a better group of photographers to bounce thoughts and ideas off of. A special thanks to Masen for pulling this together. I'm glowing because I feel I've meet the cream of the crop. Please check out there work and share it with everyone.

Sweet Savannah

Savannah's mother, Brenda, must have surgery next week. There are some problems with Brenda's kidneys that she's been dealing with for some time and it's certain she will have one removed. The outcome of the second is undetermined for now. It's a stressful time for the family and we are all hopeful that everything turns out really well for them all. Please keep them in your prayers. We love you Brenda!

Angela & Doug

September 1st, Donna and I had the pleasure of photographing Angela and Doug's wedding. A really sweet couple. And Doug... he's a crack up. It was a hot one that day, but the two of them still managed to look great. It must have been all that love for each other. Honestly, the heat ended up looking like a "glow" effect. Don't you love this image and Donna's pick of actions for it? I do! That's why I had to put this one on MY blog.

Why I LOVE Working with Donna!

When I get to work with Donna, it just all comes together. While one of us (usually me) is getting the straight on shot, the other (usually Donna) may be capturing the same image from another angle. The multiple angles can tell the same story in different ways, making the end result of the wedding portraits a perfect "marriage" of traditional photography and photo expressionism.

The Goodale Boys

I know that technically speaking, this one misses the mark, but it sure tugs on my heart strings. I couldn't resist sharing what is now one of my all time favorite personal pictures! I love these guys more than words can say.
