This winter, I braved the foggy California cold to photograph a season of football for the 49ers in the All Out Flag Football league in Bakersfield, CA. (Sorry east coast folks, foggy is as brutal as our winters tend to get.) This is a partnership with the NFL Play 60 initiative and it encourages boys & girls to play flag football. I have to say that this was a wonderful experience and all of the kids seemed to have so much fun getting out there. I witnessed so much good sportsmanship that it brought back a little hope for the future of our world.
All of these children had such great attitudes and a real love for football. I really love to catch the subtle moments of children whenever they forget that people are watching them. Sometimes you capture sweet moments, at others you find complete comedy. I'm looking forward to documenting the next season! If you have a young one who wants to play football, I highly suggest that you check this league out.
I'm such a fan of (semi) candid photography where I can capture the true essence of the subjects. This weekend, we made time to do some family portraits & I believe the results were worth all the effort!
Even photographers can become overwhelmed & neglect to take photos. The most beautiful thing, however, is taking thirty minutes to get stunning results like this. It seems like only yesterday I was taking my eldest minion home from hospital and yet here we are, thirteen years later! (Please note her boss status as evident in this photo.)
This man is my absolute rock & encouraging partner. Without him, I'm not certain I would've started taking photos professionally. Clients: You can thank him!

"I hope you will have a wonderful year, that you'll dream dangerously and outrageously, that you'll make something that didn't exist before you made it, that you will be loved and that you will be liked, and that you will have people to love and to like in return. And, most importantly (because I think there should be more kindness and more wisdom in the world right now), that you will, when you need to be, be wise, and that you will always be kind." - Neil Gaiman
If you ever get the chance to meet me, you'll often hear me say that life is all about making memories & we have to capture them into something tangible. Then life gets in the way...
Yes, it's true that life doesn't stop until we are gone. I recently lost a friend that went to high school with me at the unbelievably young age of 32. You read that right, thirty-two years on this planet. While Death & me are old friends, it doesn't make me want to acknowledge its presence on such a frequent basis. What did his passing teach me?
Stay kind and grab onto those little moments. We strive to record those for you so that you can actually ENJOY them. We not only photograph weddings, shows, & kids; We also document wakes, celebrations (anniversaries, parties, etc.), pets, & products.
I've always been an outside of the box kind of person & enjoy doing different shoots. Let us be a part of your world, even for the not-so-great ones.
Trust me, you can make a little time for photos to treasure your lifetime and beyond.
