Impromptu Rooftop Shoot with Vince

My wonderful husband.   He wears t-shirts and jeans 99% of the time, so as soon as I saw him in a suit I knew I had to capture it on camera.  Cleans up nicely huh?  Thanks honey for the improptu photo shoot!

Julina and Lloyd Maternity at Home Session

Last Saturday I had so much fun photographing this cozy casual in home maternity session.   Meet Julina and Lloyd.  These highschool sweethearts fell in love 14 years ago and woke up one morning last year and decided to tie the knot that same day.  It’s been just the two of them for so long, but not for much longer.  In just a few weeks this awesome twosome is going to become a family with the addition of a cute Vietnapino/Flipnamese baby boy.  Check out the beautiful photos!

30 self portraits in 30 days

Hey guys, it’s been a while huh? I’ve been busy with a very special life project. Not ready to announce it yet so I’m keeping mum for now =)

For now, I wanted to share some work that been hiding deep in the abyss of my hard drive. It’s about time these pics saw the light of day!

Last August I gave myself a photo challenge to take 30 self portraits in 30 days.  Everyday I set up my camera, tripod, and remote in order to take my picture of myself in a different way. I had a blast creating new lighting set ups and exploring my town for different shots. Most are SLR pics, but a few are iPhone shots. For anybody thinking about doing it… just do it!  It was crazy crash course in lighting and photography.

You bet by the end the month I was so sick of taking my selfe.  There’s only so many ways to picture my face.  Man I definetely have an appreciation for all those selfie artists out there.

Hope you enjoy!
