BFF’s

I want to thank Katie and her friends for allowing me to share in this special moment with them. Although they have all gone their separate ways since college they still make it a point to get together at least once a year and invest time into maintaining their relationship. Living in different states is a challenge but their friendship is important to them so they do what it takes. With how incredibly nuts life can get with work, family, kids and just pain old living, you gotta respect that.

It was so nice to be able to capture the spirit of their friendship, a bit quirky, funny, and sophisticated these five girls know what it means to preserves relationships, be a friend and enjoy the company of one another. They all represent different stages of life that we all go through. One was about to have her first baby, another just got married, some are in medical school, and others are looking for love, hopefully in all the right places. Photos can be a celebration of where you’ve been , where we are, and where we are going. I love to celebrate being alive.

For this shoot I was on a mission to find a location that was really special, a place I hadn’t shot before, a location that would help me capture their style. I kept driving past this antique shop and since I knew this shoot was coming up I popped in asked the owner if I could bring a few clients over for a photo shoot, he said “Sure, anytime.”I was stoked and I knew that with the combination of such great clients, and a perfect location, this shoot would for sure become one of my favorites. Being able to think outside of the box helps me get to the heart of these moments and create unique images that will honor everything these pictures mean.

I have to mention how special Katie has become to us, the special interest she has takenĀ  in our youngest son Jet. She has been his teacher for two years now, and this has been a profound blessing. She gets him, (which earns alot of points with us) and its helping him to thrive. To find a teacher willing to take the time to tune into the nuttiness of an 8 year old - Wow! we’ve fallen in love with her.

Im Family - Getty up

First of all I had SO MUCH FUN! I chased this little guy around so much, and he fell so many times I am surprised he didnt leave with a big knot on his head. But as you can see his jumping juice is at full strength and definitely comes through in these images and every one ended the shoot safe and sound. Good luck keeping up with him hes born to run. Love you guys!

Jill and Jeremy

Meet Jill and Jeremy this post is the first of two sets I’ll be showing you, these are from the second shoot we did. Our shoot started in the open fields in Redlands, then we rushed off to shoot at some of the vineyards in Temecula. We almost made it but on the way the sun was setting so fast, and I was afraid of loosing the light, so we decided to pull over in Perris and take advantage of some interesting locations I found there. You know its amazing how sometimes when your not even looking magical places materialize this was really the perfect backdrop for their portraits.
Afterward we went to diner and I learned a bit more about them. Jeremy is a forensic accountant (highly technical sounding profession and some what intimidating - I just keep thinking IRS). And Jill is a nurse. these guys just feel right, real chemistry and you could feel it. Our diner was great, Its so nice to mix my work with good times.
Oh, and Jeremy I gotta apologize for the Fringe spoiler - just forget what I said and enjoy the show. I look forward to your wedding in October.
Look out for the first part of our shoot coming soon!
