CLAIRE + SETH ENGAGEMENT

These two: if you’re in San Diego, you may have heard Claire’s voice reporting for KPBS or read Seth’s words for the Voice of San Diego. Metaphorically speaking, they are the fancy cheeses in a world of Velveeta and Kraft Singles, which is why I can’t wait to shoot their wedding in a few weeks.

THIS IS WHAT WE CALL HEADSHOTS

I had the pleasure of shooting Trisha and Joe of Pigeon Hole Productions and you need to get to know these two. They are geniuses in their field and so so so (time infinity) so fun to be around. This was technically a headshot session, and what ensued was my dream headshot session . . . a smattering of JC Penny-shoulder-up-smile-into-the-camera shots, mixed with headstands and tromping through weeds and running toward graffiti walls. If you’re an ideal client of mine, you will tromp through weeds and get excited when I tell you to go into that shady alley and stand in front of graffiti.

CHICKENS AND HUSKIES AND YETIS, OH MY!

It’s always an adventure with these two, which makes for not only great photo shoots, but great friends. There’s so much talent and creativity and zest for life behind Jen and Kris, they inspire me to get out from behind Netflix and actually experience the world around me. In the years that I’ve known Jen, she has always pushed me to live the bigger life. Hopefully I was able to capture just a piece of this in our fun little photo shoot.

LITTLE ITALY ENGAGEMENT SESSION

This is much overdue engagement post. My favorite part about this session was that they wanted me to take pictures of them at Underbelly, just enjoying something they love: ramen. One of my favorite things to photograph is people simply living life and I knew I’d love this couple when part of her email included this little bit: “We’re pretty open to ideas and we’re firm believers in ” it’s who your with and not where you are” that makes things fun and memorable. So we’re game for anything you suggest.” She then went on to say that they’ve driven over an hour to get a bowl of noodle soup. Since they now live on the East Coast, I thought it would be fun to capture them having a great time over a good meal at one of my new favorite restaurants in San Diego.

Photographer’s. Dream. (well, at least mine.) Oh, and the last picture happened right before a bird pooped all over my head, my camera, and in my camera bag. Thanks, Pigeon!

HOLIDAY FAMILY PHOTO SESSIONS

This was the year of making it look like none of us live in San Diego: to the woods! Here are a few more of my favorites from some really fun family shoots done in the South Park neighborhood of San Diego recently.

HOLIDAY HIGHLIGHTS

These are a few of my favorites from some of the holiday mini-sessions I did recently. You might almost believe we’re not in San Diego by the sweet-baby-Jesus-autumnal backdrop Mission Trails provided.

FRANCESCA + SEAN at UCSD

A few weeks ago I received a magical email that told me this couple found me purely through a search of the Google. No referrals, just a “we want to hire you because we like your work”. After getting to know Francesca and Sean, I couldn’t be happier that the powers of the internet brought us together! We met early on a Sunday morning on the quiet campus of UCSD, celebrating their one year wedding anniversary with a photo shoot. A main goal of the morning was to recreate one of their wedding photos, which they will recreate every anniversary in the years to come. Such a great idea, I might steal it myself!

KIM + VISHAL WEDDING

Kim and Vishal. I keep just wanting to follow that with the sentiment, “these two”, in a sort of knowing tone that a friend with an inside secret would use. We had our first meetup over Skype, which was fitting after hearing their story. Kim and Vishal met over a music website in the same way that some of my most cherished friends and I met over a photography website. I don’t know that this sort of thing happens any more, which is why I love it. Like Match.com before dating websites existed. This wedding was so fun to shoot, and you have to make sure you’ve seen the craziness of their photobooth pictures here. Thanks again to my trusty sidekick, Colleen, for helping me capture the day AND get all the fun film images from Kim’s Holga at the end of this post!

PETERSON WEDDING

KRIS’ DIRTY THIRTY BIRTHDAY

LITTLE ITALY ENGAGEMENT SESSION

This sunset engagement session in Little Italy was 10,000 times more fun than Sir Winston (Annie and Luigi’s pug) is letting on in these pictures. I. LOVE. THIS. DOG. And let’s not forget the amazing people in front of the camera. I say it over and over again, but I am beyond lucky that I get to do this stuff for a living.

Second Shooter-ing: Condor’s Nest Ranch

I love second shooting for Colleen because it means I get to post animated GIFs of her steamy coffee glasses (seen below). And of course because I get to shoot lovely photos at the picturesque Condor’s Nest Ranch.

Family Photo Shoot: Normal Heights San Diego

I have traveled much life with these people, especially the pregnant one . . . all the way from junior high band, to college basketball teammates, to a 1,300 mile move to a “quaint” (small, yet charming) San Diego apartment together. A few years after our move, Erin needed to buy a couch and Andy happened to own a pickup truck . . . you know what comes after helping someone purchase and transport a couch. That’s right, babies. [also: dating, engagement, wedding, et al.] Of course the maternity shoot you see below turned into a toddler photo shoot, because, I mean, look at the adorable three-year-old-going-on-teenager. You may want to scroll down to the very last image if you want to have the best smile of your day.

WEDDING: KATIE + DAVE

I originally had the opportunity to photograph Katie and Dave about a year and a half ago here, when I made them drink milkshakes and take pictures in public showers. Luckily we had so much fun they invited me back for the wedding! This was a perfect way to kick off 2013 weddings: One of the best beach towns in SoCal (check). Laid back couple in love (check). Baby blue Lincoln Continental (check). Local coffee shop venue (check). Oh, and that one time where I made the bride hike down treacherous dirt paths in really high heels to see her groom for the first time (check)! I really have to pinch myself sometimes when I realize how lucky I am to work with such amazing people. Again, major gratitude for Colleen of Color Me Rad (seen below, light testing in the bamboo) for helping me capture the day!

Cristy + Jake Gender Reveal

The day Jake and Cristy were finding out the sex of their baby, she asked if I could meet up and take a few quick shots for a “gender reveal” she wanted to do. Rite Aid ice cream you say? I’ll be right there. Oh, and by the way, Cristy, who also happens to be the owner of Buds and Blooms, did the flowers for our wedding. I’d give her six stars out of five if I could. If you need floral arrangements for ANY occasion, go. to. her.

THE BASS-CHING FAMILY

Rebecca, who not only wears the hats of mother and wife (as seen in following pictures) is also the mastermind behind Potentia Family Therapy, an amazing group of people who provide a space for holistic living with therapy, yoga, massage, workshops, (and on an on) all under one roof. She’s a superhero, (as are the rest of her family members. See also: superhero dedicated high school teacher husband, Gavin) and it was a privilege to be behind the lens for this crew. So much life and fun crammed into just two hours.

HEFNERS: NUMBER BAGILLION

This crazy (said with the utmost respect) crew has been a staple in my repertoire of family photos for a bagillion years now. This year we added in a few extra generations, including great grandpa, whose namesake was passed to the newest member of the family, Henry.

[In case anyone was wondering, I now charge extra for couch moving during photo shoots. (winky face).]

KOPP FAMILY IN CORONADO

Three generations. An engagement. Charlie’s Angels. Grandparents. A baby in a suitcase. Lots of laughing. And a sunny beach on December 23rd. Awesomeness.
