It’s Been a While

My last post is less than 2 weeks shy of a year ago. Insane how fast time goes by. I spent 2015  traveling and doing a lot of soul searching. I continued to shoot and had an amazingly successful year considering how  often I was away. I’ll be busy posting over the next few weeks with photos from my travels/lessons learned as well as work. I’ll leave these photos of one of my recent little muses, Haley. 

More to come…


It’s been a while since I’ve had personal portraits to shoot. I had the pleasure of shooting two in the beginning of January. First was my girlfriend Trista’s.  We have been friends for 5 years now, most spent apart with all her travels! But we have remained close no matter how many miles separate us! She needed some new photos for her portfolio and I was more than happy to take them for her! It reminded me of how important it is to have some portraits done of yourself every now and then. One of my most favorite quotes is “Today is the oldest you have ever been, and the youngest you will ever be again.”  Why wait for a family portrait session or engagement session. Like young people are now having for their senior pictures,  people should have more ME sessions. Yes, I like this idea.TristaTrista01Trista02Trista03Trista06

..International Lovers..

Just over a year ago these two love birds met in San Diego. Ted is from Sweden and was visiting San Diego on holiday. But just before he left he met Cristy and their love story began. A year has gone by and many miles have been flown. On his most recent trip to visit Cristy, they arranged a little photo session of their own.

This shoot was special because it was Ted’s 3rd and final visit of the year. Next is Cristy’s turn to fly to Sweden, except her ticket has no return date. That’s right, this American girl is taking off on a fairytale adventure to see Europe with the man she loves.

It was wonderful shooting with these international little love birds. I can’t wait to go visit them in Sweden! 2013 is going to be an amazing year!
