Family Photographs from our Wisconsin Trip in February 2015

Ironically as it’s nearly 90º here in Southern California and my Mom, who has been visiting us for the past two weeks, prepares to head back to Wisconsin, I am catching up on some family portraits and moment photographs from our visit to Wisconsin in Feburary. Our kids have been pestering us to go back …

“Crazy Hair Day” | Orange County Portrait Photographer

Today was the annual “Crazy Hair Day” at Kate’s school so Nicki turned our little 8 1/2 year old into a little Who, with her very Seuss-like hair. Portraits made in the front of the house, with available light (and a silver reflector) and the bottom one made in the back of the house, with …

36 Frames – A Day in Kate’s Life

This project was made with one roll of Tri-X film and these are each of the images made throughout the day last Wednesday. Very fun to do this, also a challenge.  In the age of being able to make 100s of exposures with digital cameras, this exercise really hones the discipline. Processing and scanning by …

There is a special bond between these two. Yesterday Sparky was having a melt down (at 18 months he’s entering the terrible twos early, just like his big sis did.  The saving grace, is that he’ll be OUT of them sooner.  At least that is the hope) during breakfast. Nothing would pacify him (not even …

Rainy Day Side Patio Triptych

Just got this film back from the lab today. I wanted to try out a new Canon film camera that I just received with a roll of Kodak 200, an amateur film that I had for my point and shoot. It was clearly one of the rainy days last week but the light had a …

A few images from today and the 90th Birthday Party

Before the party started, the dogs up the street were going wild. The vervet monkeys that live in the trees around the house here were at it.  And the neighbor’s dogs made Rufus and Millie start to go mad, too. I couldn’t get any closer or it would scare them off — as it was …

Visit to Tala Private Game Reserve | Camperdown, KZ-N, South Africa

Yesterday we had a lovely visit to Tala, a private game reserve that is about 35 miles from Tony and Moira’s home. It has been a special place for us since Nicki and I first visited there in January 2001, before she came back to the States and a few months before we were married. …

Selection of Images from Kate’s 4th Birthday Party

Catching up on the blog post from this past weekend’s mega Princess and Heroes birthday party in honor of Kate’s 4th. We had the cupcakes and champagne and, of course, the bounce house, but more importantly, we were surrounded by friends and my sister Mary and her husband Scott (near the end of their visit). …
