Spider and Full Moon // Orange County

Just in time for Halloween…. Last Thursday, the night before the full moon made the perfect time to photograph this huge spider hanging out on a web in our side yard. I needed a six foot ladder, in order to get into the right position to line up the spider and web with the moon.  …

Dad’s Birthday

Today would have been my Dad’s 83rd birthday. He passed away in 2006 after he suffered a stroke in 1999.  After the stroke he required around-the-clock care (by my Mom) and he was never the same Dad that we knew growing up.

Orange County Kids Photography | Kate & Sparky in the studio

Orange County Kids Photographer | Fingers on the Keyboard | PAD

Kate has been working hard at learning the basics of piano (taught by Mom).  She seems to pick it up pretty well and once she gets practicing she usually is competitive enough to learn the song. I loved this detail photograph of her left hand learning how to chord this morning.

Orange County Event Photographer | The Boys of Fall | PAD

Last month, while back in Wisconsin for several portraits and a wedding in Chicago, I had the opportunity to photograph my nephew’s football game.  He’s the big kid wearing #70 and he’s heading off the field during a time out to confer with their offensive coordinator.  To say I’m proud of him would be a …

Orange County Kids Photographer | Marbella Montessori | PAD

Today’s photograph is from a visit this morning to Marbella Montessori, where I often photograph. This little girl has the most gorgeous hair and I loved how it was accented with a ribbon in it. Originally I had gone to the school to scout and plan for tomorrow and Friday’s student portraits, though ended up …
