Greg + Tessa – San Diego Engagement Photographer

A cute couple frolicking in the wilderness followed around by a guy with a camera could either be creepy or normal.  This time it was normal.  I had such a great time hanging out with Greg & Tessa this past weekend and can’t wait for their fall wedding at Estancia in La Jolla!   Makeup… Read more »

Conor: Poway Senior Portrait Photographer

Like most high school guys…Conor didn’t really care about his senior pictures. Thankfully, mom has power. We met up in Pacific Beach. Lighting was less than ideal but I trumped it with my flash skills. Congrats to Conor, Poway Class of 2011! I actually shot Conor’s sisters wedding back in November. Such a rad family!

Super awesome & talented friends + baby shower

To make things more stressful, we found a place to move to so we’ll try move and get settled in before our little girl comes. (fingers crossed she waits until after the move). Aside from… Read more »

Military MakeOver

Our military families sacrifice so much. I have so much respect for those that serve and and risk their lives to protect our country. I can’t imagine going through what they do! So it’s only fitting that the two winners from the makeover contest Lotus Den Hair Studio put on were two military wives. They… Read more »

Way behind…Lotus Den Hair Studio

So I’ve fallen behind in blogging. My bad. It’s nothing personal. To make up for it I will cram a condensed version of many blog posts into one… Here’s a couple of pix I took of our friends over at the Lotus Den Hair Studio in Oceanside. If you ever look in the mirror and… Read more »

Ode to my doggie…

I LOVE dogs. I REALLY love our dog Roxy. I love how regardless of circumstances, as soon as she heard us come home she was as excited as can be. So this week was a sad week. Our dog Roxy went from fine to gone in just a few days. We thought she had a… Read more »

Last Sunday we got the opportunity to shoot some senior portraits for Krista. Krista is a senior at Orange Glen. Krista freakin’ rocks in front of the camera.

The family with a cool last name…

A couple of weeks ago we shot the Hawkes family. My last name isn’t really that cool. Hawkes…now that is much cooler. So we have been trying to get this shoot done for months…but with all the different schedules we just finally got around to it. Years ago they had done family pictures where they… Read more »
