Family Fun Time!

Chris & Heeyoung have two of the cutest, fun-loving kids in the world! We had so much fun with Grant & Bryant at the park yesterday.

Before I roll out the images, a little brief history. Chris is the anesthesiologist who recruited Drew to come out to Chandler & work w/ his group. So depending on how you look at it, you can either thank him or be mad at him. :) J/k! I am really happy to be here & have been loving it, heat & all! The people I've met (including a few photographers) have been super friendly & I'm looking forward to getting to know everyone.

Ok, and with that...we have the Lee family with Grant up at bat!

Awesome swing there!

Here comes Grandma pushing Bryant along.

Sometimes things don't go according to plan. But that's what makes it memorable. :)

This was Grant's attempt at doing the formal family portrait. So funny!
Photobucket

Ok, he did MUCH better here.

Bryant loves being twirled around. And being thrown up in the air. And a lot of other action-packed fun. I can tell this kid's going to be a thrill-seeker.

We snuck mom & dad away from the kids for a brief moment. I love these.

Announcing...Angel Eyes!

Since I've moved over to Chandler -a suburb of Phoenix- I thought I'd expand my photography to also include cute little munchkins, aka, kids. A long time ago, in a land far, far, away, I used to teach elementary school. And I soooo miss the kids from those days.

Now, I'm looking forward to meeting new sweet little faces and being able to document their personalities, growth, and changes throughout the years so that their parents can indulge in how adorable their kids are when they look at the albums and prints created.

Check out the site's newest gallery: Angel Eyes!

Mother Daughter Time

These images are a few months old, but I just went through some of my old files and happily discovered them. It's of Daisy and her daughter Sophia sharing some quality mother/daughter time at this amazing eucalyptus grove at UCSD.

Sophie is just toooo cute!!!

Announcing...Boudoir Sessions!!!

I am so excited to post one of my favorite shoots! While back in San Diego, I did a boudoir session with a client & it was awesome!!! I absolutely LOVE doing boudoir sessions because there's so much artistic freedom that comes with them. And being able to make other women feel hot, liberated & desirable ain't so bad either. :D

Thank you to my beautiful client for being cool with me posting these. Of course, we took a gajillion more with her face showing, but to maintain her privacy, only non-facial shots are posted. If anyone is interested in setting up a session though, she has given me permission to share more images in private. You'll love them! :)

A Little Bit O' Heaven

When people told me the sunsets here were spectacular, they really meant it.

Straight outta the camera, no photoshop - I swear!
Photobucket

Yes, that's my pool, next to a pond (or as people here like to call it, a lake!)

Tabitha & Mike, 07.05.08

Tabitha & Mike's wedding was the one I shot in Del Mar with Kristen Peelle where I happened upon the hot air ballooners as I was driving home. The nuptials took place at the Rancho Valencia Resort -a very oooh aaaah site with lots of spots for photo ops.

Photobucket

These two aren't your traditional wedding couple. They both got ready in the same room with family members around.

This isn't for her.
Photobucket

It's for him!
Photobucket

It's always a good idea to tone down the shiny heads for photos, especially on a sunny day! :)

In case you haven't noticed from their rockin' bods, Tabitha & Mike are both fitness trainers. Yeah!

The wedding was extremely intimate with only 13 guests - all family members.

Mike's brother's speech got quite a few laughs.

While Tabitha's sister's speech drew tears at the end.

Gorgeous details.

Congratulations Tabitha & Mike and thanks Kristen for asking me to shoot with you! :)
