Max's Senior Pictures

Being a server, I meet so many interesting kind of people.  One day I got talking with a woman and her 8 year old son about the restaurant that I work at.  She asked me what I do in my free time and I explained I am pursuing a career in photography.  She got extremely excited saying her family just recently moved here from Texas and she was in need of a senior pictures for her son.

It's so funny how small of a world it is, and what kind of people are sitting right in front of you.  Here are Max's Senior Pictures.  He graduated from Huntington Beach High School and is on his way to college.  Thanks for the opportunity guys!

Unite Hair's Headshots

I had the wonderful opportunity to photograph headshots for Unite Hair's Academy down in San Diego.  They had so much energy and put a lot of life and personality to their headshots, which as a photographer is very appreciated!  Thanks for being beautiful guys, and making my job so easy! XO

Crowell, Weedon & Co's Brochure is Here

There is nothing better than seeing my work used and put to good use!  I had the opportunity of shooting head shots/professional portraits of Steve Jackson, Steve Jackson Jr, and their associate Bo for their annual Christmas card and their new brochure that is sent to all their clients.  Thanks for trusting me guys!

Andrea Schroder & her new fragrances!

Recently I have had the opportunity to photograph at the Schroder's home in Malibu for Andrea's new fragrances for her candle line!  Her holiday line literally captures the essence of this time of year, so we obviously had to bring that into our photos!  

It's safe to say, I don't know how I didn't have her candles before now.  I am absolutely in love with them!  They also make the perfect gift!!

And a big thanks to our beautiful candle model, Faith Schroder!

Fit with Cambrie @ StyleCon!

Had the amazing opportunity to shoot the Fit with Cambrie girls at StyleCon at the OC Fairgrounds over the weekend, who recently just got sponsored by ADIDAS!!  It was rad to watch their high energy and motivation, which included more then just promoting dance.

You can check out Cambrie's inspiration behind Fit with Cambrie and what she's all about on her website and instagram. (and you can also see some of my work! hehe)

Lori & Aric Tie the Knot!

It was such a privilege to photograph Lori & Aric's love last week in Fontana as they prepared for their wedding day.  After searching for a few months for a destination with a hint of Spanish architecture, we finally found the perfect location for their wedding photos.
These two are so in love; it was ultimately refreshing!  Thank you for trusting me and giving me the opportunity to capture this special moment in your lives!

Crystal, Nick & Baby Opal

After shooting their pregnancy photos, I finally got to meet baby Opal & take their first portraits as a family!  We had a great time in Back Bay, even though Opal isn't an afternoon kind of girl.  Thanks for the opportunity guys!

Gettin Creative with Nick Bamford

Nick Bamford invited me into another one of his mind blowing galleries.  Full of treehouses, detailed sculptures, and intense charcoal sketches, you'll never be bored getting lost in his exhibits.  This being one of his last shows at CSULB, he is soon to enter graduate school for ceramics and sculpture.  Thanks for the rad opportunity BamBam!

Check out more of his work on his Facebook!

Scott & Kiera are almost parents!

My cousin Scott & his wife Kiera are expecting their first baby any day now.  At 40 weeks pregnant Kiera was a trooper for these pictures.  I love you both very much & am SO excited for the joy that is about to enter your lives!  Congrats guys!

The Pardon's take Palm Springs

One of my favorite families, the Pardon's, ventured out to Palm Springs with me & Jake for a little afternoon photo session.  We drove all around looking for amazing spots to shoot at (I must add, in 115 degree weather).  
Twyla & Jacob are the definition of a rad family.
Thanks for the amazing time guys, even though I almost passed out 20 minutes into shooting and we had to go sit in the air conditioning for a while!

Tattify with Meghan Rienks

Finally sharing my amazing time shooting Meghan Rienks for Tattify!
Her new collection of temporary tattoos range from geometric to nature to quotes.
Not only is this girl extremely funny, but she's taking off as an actress & social media superstar.

Check her out @meghanrienks

Better Late than NEVER, Melissa's Headshots!

Been off the grid a little lately working, shooting, and brainstorming.  I have finally found the time between setting up my business and starting a new full-time job to post some headshots I had the pleasure of shooting with the beautiful Melissa.  

Crystal Cove gave us stunning light that day, and ultimately a great time!
Thanks for the opportunity Melissa! (:
