Time sure is flying by this year! Seems like I just had a newborn session with Shay and here he is already hitting the 4 month mark! The last time Shay was in front of my camera, he slept the session away. I think that’s what he wanted to do this time around, but I had other plans in store for him (or maybe it was vice versa). Getting Shay’s attention proved to be quite the challenge, but in those short instances, he had the cutest expressions – some of them gave me a pretty good chuckle during the editing process. In the end though, I think it was baby Shay who had the last laugh and a big fat nap for all his hard work! Have a look at the many (adorable) faces of Shay:

Now here’s a post that I just couldn’t wait to get up on the blog. I had the most incredible day hanging with Cyndie & Jason in the Arts District in Downtown Los Angeles. Jason is my uber stylish hair stylist and we’ve been trying to schedule a shoot for him and his wife Cyndie for the longest time. It finally went down last Sunday.
This hot duo wanted the location of their shoot to be special, so we headed back to their old L.A. stomping grounds BC (that’s “Before Children” to those of you not familiar with the acronym :-p ). From the moment we arrived, I knew it was going to be a bomb ass session (oops, there goes the G-rating, but yes, it was that good!). Actually, from the moment they stepped out of their ride, it was clear that I had once again struck photographer’s gold. A sexy couple, a plethora of ultra cool urban backdrops…bring in the guns (yes, I said “guns”) and you’ve got one smokin’ hot session. Check it out for yourself.
We stopped at Cafe Metropol , the cafe they went to daily:
A final shot from our last stop on the L.A. tour – Olvera Street:
P.S. If you have an affinity for anything German, then head on over to Old World Restaurant in Huntington Beach. Cyndie and her family have owned and operated the Old World German Restaurant & Oktoberfest for over 30 years and they will hook you up – jå, jå !

Last Monday I had the opportunity to photograph a civil wedding ceremony at the Old Orange County Courthouse. Patty & Ray are tying the knot in Cabo San Lucas this weekend, but they needed to do the official/legal ceremony at the justice of the peace before jetting off to Mexico. Their awesome friends and recently married clients of mine, Ellen & Stuart, wanted to give them something special as a wedding gift. They gave me a call and asked me to shoot the civil ceremony for Patty & Ray because they thought an event that special should also be documented, even if it was only the legal schmeegle part – I couldn’t agree more!
We only had about an hour to shoot, but they were a very relaxed couple to work with -once the ceremony was over :-p It was so cute to see how nervous Ray was right before the ceremony. These two are such a loving couple and it shows in their photos. Patty & Ray, I wish you a wonderful life together! Congratulations on your wedding!
