My big project is up for the world to see! This morning I spent hours completing a project that has been MONTHS in the making. I don’t even want to think about how many hours were spent in Photoshop working on these images, but the end result is worth it! If you live in San [...]
My last blog post had the front side of my family’s Christmas card. It was a riddle. … What do these three things have in common: Rory on a Razor Scooter, Matt’s Soccer Kicks, & 2010 Did you figure out the answer? Here’s the back side of the card: Get it?? (I’m pretty dorky, I [...]

I love getting Christmas & holiday cards in the mail, and this is my way of bribing you into sending me a card. If I was made of money, I’d buy an iPhone or an iPad, or a Canon camera to give away to you, but oh well… I still had a pretty fun shopping [...]
You know I love my camera bags, right!!?? If I’m going to give away my FAVORITE things in my Christmas card drawing, then one of those things had better be a Jill-e camera bag! I have not ONE, but TWO bags to give away! First is the small bone leather bag — so gorgeous! My [...]
Amazing! I have FOUR cool prizes to give away this year for my annual Christmas Card drawing! For this drawing every year, I always choose my favorite things on the planet, and this year I REALLY wanted to give away an iPad!

from a Balboa Park Mini Platinum session back in June There I was on Saturday, walking towards the Coronado sand with my clients, and the mom voiced the little chastisement that I’ve been imposing on myself all summer when she said, “I haven’t been seeing any blog posts from you lately!” I told her what [...]
Here are more images from that Little Italy session. What a fun morning that was! The little fountain we found was very cool:
This was quite the global session! We had a family of five Irish and their German photographer gallivanting around Little Italy. I’ll have many more to share tomorrow, including their slideshow, but for now, enjoy the family strolling along in front of Filippi’s Pizza (yummm!) I’m thinking I need to order Pizza for dinner tonight! [...]
Last weekend, I was hired by a new SoCal soccer website to capture some action shots at National Cup in Temecula. By the way, if you’re a soccerhead, stay tuned to SoccerNation.com! It’s set to launch this week, and it will have some pretty awesome pictures (wink wink). Of course, Mat came along with me [...]
Back before Christmas, I announced my yearly Christmas Card drawing. There were SO MANY great cards, and the random winner also happened to be my FAVORITE card of the bunch. The layout is adorable, the style is fresh & clean, and the quality is amazing! But, sorry Mpix, it wasn’t one of yours. The winner [...]
Every December I create a slideshow with images from throughout the year. This year, I got an email from Animoto with an ADORABLE Christmas greeting motif, and it was too enticing to pass up! I chose a piano arrangement of “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas” by Vicky Emerson. She is AWESOME and gave me [...]
A few days ago, I shared a sneak peek for Rusty’s family. I’ve taken pictures of many dogs and their families over the years, and Rusty is the sweetest, fluffiest, must gentle pooch ever! He’s a giant lovee teddy bear — really!

My pirate name is: Dread Pirate Rackham Like the famous Dread Pirate Roberts, you have a keen head for how to make a profit.

Sometimes at a session I’ll smile so much that my cheeks hurt. Sometimes I laugh so much that I feel a little twing in my abs. At this session, I was in downright PAIN from laughing and smiling so much!
Summer vacation is in full swing, and the kids are having a BLAST! My work hours are really cut short, but I don’t mind. Summer is all about playtime, not work time, RIGHT? (Hence no blog posts since Fathers Day — man, that’s some serious blog neglect!) I have to share these photos with you, [...]
I love this shot of Sam running & laughing from dad…
Mother’s Day afternoon brought GORGEOUS weather to San Diego, and I met some awesome families in Balboa Park to create some special pictures. A few months ago, I opened up a very small number of openings for Mini Platinum sessions on Mother’s Day. The results were some very special pictures. This cute little family has [...]

My photoshoots are usually in the morning for a few reasons, but the main reason is because during the afternoons M-F is when my “mom hat” is firmly planted on my head, not to be removed until the kids are in bed or off at school the next morning. So, weekday photoshoots are in the [...]
