Mia Class of 2017 High School Senior Session with Guitar

In Mia’s second shoot, we focus on her guitar. She has been taking guitar lessons at school during her senior year. Practices daily and has gotten so good.
DSC_7463 copyDuring the shoot, we had three locations for a 90 minutes session. I had this planned out before hand so it could be really quick. DSC_7347DSC_7421DSC_7428I found this building that was so colorful and perfect for the guitar images. DSC_7371DSC_7383 croppedDSC_7435DSC_7442After taking guitar images, I switched  Mia over to a dress that she wore for homecoming party during her junior year.

One Year Lived – Portraits of Adam Shepard

I had an opportunity to photograph author, Adam Shepard. He wrote One Year Lived. He had $25 in his pocket and dropped in a random city and had to survive on his wits. His goal was to get a job, find a place to live and at the end of year have $2500 in cash. I love the premise and getting to know Adam. After meeting with Adam, I decided that an urban location would be perfect and picked downtown Los Angeles. Here are some of my favorites.001002The above image was photographed at the new museum, The Broad. Great backdrop. 004Walt Disney Concert Hall is another great place to photograph with backdrops of the city.

Chloe – Orange Children Photography

I have been photographing Chloe since she was five years old. That is what I love about my job is seeing children blossom before my very eyes. I enjoy working with Chloe’s Mom as she has such great taste in planning out Chloe’s wardrobe. Now that Chloe is 10 years old she has a say on what to wear for her photo shoots. She picked out the plaid shirt, jeans and boots. 007 LogodWe photographed at the Los Rios District in historical San Juan Capistrano. It is one of the oldest areas in California dating back to late 1700’s and early 1800’s. 034 Logo
