Princess dress Collection

I made a very very rare appearance in the studio (Thanks Errol for sharing your gorgeous space with me!) I wanted to capture a high-key grouping of portraits of Kate wearing each of her hand-made princess dresses made by her Granny Moira. Her favorite varies, but she’s still loving and wearing the pink Aurora (Sleeping …

Rachel’s Hair

This is one of my favorite photos from a kids session. I just love the feeling of it, and I love that even though it was a planned portrait session, something spontaneous like this was found. At every portrait session, I always try to find a photo that strikes me.  If my clients like it …

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 …

Last night Kate and Nicki were bathing and after a while she began to check herself in the big mirror and start to pose.  This was the first one in a long series of photos of her doing it and really captures her intense little nature.  I often find that it’s many times the first …

36 Frames

This week I asked students in my classes at betterphoto.com to try a little exercise this weekend.  I asked them if they went to a SuperBowl party that they only make 36 images.  And to use one camera and one lens, making things very simple. So we went to a little get-together as well and I …

B & W film back from the lab

After getting back from Poway, our lab in LA, Richard Photo Lab, gave us a bit of an early Christmas present with a shipment of processed film and scans.  It truly is like Christmas whenever these come back and I just can’t wait to see the images.  These faves were made earlier in the month …

Happy Fourth of July … catching up a little bit

It’s been a hectic time around here, though you’d never know it from the blog.  Kids sessions have been hectic, a couple of weddings and teaching a course up at Golden Gate School in San Francisco have kept me busy…trying to catch up a bit with blog posts, too.  With this entry I’m trying some …

Father’s Day Weekend 2008

Yesterday, Nicki, Kate and my Mom (in town for a few weeks, visiting from Wisconsin) took a little break and went to the Covenant Hills pool.  Nicki made these photos of us just cooling off in the toddler pool.
