Baby Sarah

One thing that is just such a joy to photography is babies, so much wonder in their eyes and full of life. I always photograph littles ones that are under a year in their own home and like to really capture them in their natural setting. Images of them playing with their toys or getting loved on my mommy and daddy are perfect little moments that I try to capture. I got to photography baby Sarah a few weeks ago and what a cutie she was, just full of laughs and smiles. Here is a quick little highlight of some of the images.

Lifestyle Family Photos

I love photographing children in a natural environment when they can just have fun and be themselves. During a recent mini workshop I was able to capture some images of a great family we have been able to work with many times in the past. Melissas kids are just so adorable I absolutely love being able to create images of them. With out lifestyle family sessions we like to capture some moments that are natural and really show the personality of the kids, here we just were able to capture some natural images of them interacting with each other and some great moments. Here are a few quick images and a little highlight slideshow:




Lifestyle family photography

Since I have primarily focuses on weddings for the past 12 years I am known for my wedding photography but some people don’t know that I also love to do Lifestyle family photography. Capturing a point in time for a family can be a great experience and especially when you have kids in the mix I think its an essential thing to have portraits created to remember that point in your life. There is nothing like capturing the love of a family and interactions between each other. Here is a shot from a little while back that I just loved, the light was just at a perfect angle and created this really soft and beautiful shot!

Its a new year and a new look

It’s a brand new year and we are excited to roll out part of our new look for 2011! Our photography style has always encompassed a few things, Art and Passion. We are very passionate about what we do and I have always felt that what sets our work apart is the joy and love you see in the final images. Our logo was created 12 years ago by my wife in a little apartment in San Jose where I started my business. The first thing she drew right away when sitting down at my computer was a heart. It looked cool but I had her try many more variations and we kept going back to that first drawing which has stuck with us since then. It’s always been an important symbol for me since it shows what my photography is all about, Heart. When I photograph a session I put all of my heart into it and also connect with my couples. At a wedding I laugh, cry, jump for joy and am filled with all of the same emotions you are. With that love and joy I capture artistic images that capture the essence of your day and really tell a story about your unique day. This year we are starting to rebrand everything to really fit with our vision and show the fun, joy and more colorful side of who we are as artists. Although I did like our clean and classic old look of the blog and website it will all be refreshed with this new style that really captures the fun and joy that we are all about.

I wish you all the best in 2011, and remember we love to hear your comments so please drop us a line below.
