Honestly, David. Quit staring at me. You’ve got a game to play. Beckham couldn’t get this little San Diego SoccerNation photographer out of his mind. See how he’s staring at me?? I told him to focus as he was heading to the field with his LA Galaxy teammates, but he didn’t listen, and they ended [...]
I’ve got a VERY cool project coming up in the coming weeks, and if you’ve got a little club soccer player in your family, you may want to let me know! Soccer Fanatic is THE place to gear up in SoCal, and I’m going to be creating some COOL promotional displays for the retail stores [...]
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 [...]

As a wedding present, way back on December 11, 1993, Jason and I received a nativity scene that a family molded, fired, and glazed by hand, just for us. It is one of my most treasured possessions, and this year, for the first time ever, it is on display at a height less than 5ft! [...]
Yup, we’ve got sibling rivalry in our house. Mat has the weapons of age, athleticism, strength, and knowledge. He knows he can’t use all of them in his battles with Rory, but the threats are still sometimes just as effective. What weapons does sweet little (not so innocent) little Rory have? Art & creativity. And [...]
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 [...]
Those are some cool looking boys, huh!?! That’s the project I’ve been working on for the last month or so, and I’m SO HAPPY with these final results! I’ve been working with the launch crew for SOCCERNATION.COM to create some awesome material to promote their site launch. The folks in charge of the site got [...]
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 [...]
I have not posted anything on my blog in a very long time, but I’m not going to apologize for it. Do you know why? Because I’ve been doing what I hope you all have been able to do!
….this is a post I did last year just before Thanksgiving, and since I just finished my grocery store run for all of the ingredients, I thought I’d share it again for anyone who missed the instructions last year for making an awesome APPLE PIE … There are two foods I make really well: Steak [...]
If you’re in San Diego, HAVE YOU GOTTEN YOUR JASON MRAZ TICKETS YET??
Thursday is School Picture Day at Mat & Rory’s school! Last night I looked at the Picture Day order form, filled it out with the kids’ info, and left all of those purchasing lines empty. Sorry, School Portrait Person, I’m doing my own school pictures, and I’m going to order them through Mpix. You can [...]
Avast me hearties!! What’s your pirate name? September 19th is International Talk Like a Pirate Day! My pirate name is: Dread Pirate Rackham Like the famous Dread Pirate Roberts, you have a keen head for how to make a profit. You have the good fortune of having a good name, since Rackham (pronounced RACKem, not [...]
Summer vacation is officially over,and it officially went by faster than any summer vacation in recorded history. To give Mr. Summer one last kiss goodbye,we invited some kids over to splash in our little backyard pool.(not too many kids… "little" doesn’t quite cover how tiny our little pool actually is!) The kids don’t seem to [...]
WOW. August has been flying by! Sadly, I was trying so hard to keep up with my blog, but here we are, at the end of August, and I haven’t posted since August 7th! A lot has been going on, it’s just been mostly MOM stuff and not photography stuff. Plus, I’ve been trying to [...]
Last weekend wasn’t full of beach parties and BBQ’s for the Schumacher family. If you’re a parent in club soccer, you know that last weekend kicked off SUMMER TOURNAMENT SEASON! I’m SO PROUD of Mat’s team because they entered their first tournament under a HUGE umbrella of question marks, but they didn’t let that intimidate [...]
Yesterday I had another round of headshot sessions while Mat & Rory played in the park. Both had finished their homework, so Mat sat down to watch Calvary’s middle school soccer team play Calvary La Mesa. Rory decided to swing swing swing. Since my headshot sessions are so short, I had extra time to just [...]
Here at my desk, I’m sitting at the intersection of two smells, and it’s not very pleasant. Normally, I’d love the smell of Pilsburry Cinamon Rolls. I also enjoy the new smell of fresh paint. (especially if I’m not the one doing the painting!) But, take my word for it, the two mixed together aren’t [...]
How does Rory know that Mat loves her? Because Mat posed for this picture just for her: Now we’ve both had “That’s How You Know” from Enchanted in our heads all day!
I put together a movie of Mat’s first two days in the big city. Sunday we hit the Toys R Us in Times Square, saw Lion King, stumbled upon a flea market that took up 4 or 5 city blocks on 6th Ave, and had our nighttime photoshoot in Times Square. Today (Monday), we went [...]
