This get up is a treasure that I found in a local antique shop called Granny's Attic here in Temecula. I love hunting for crazy outfits reminding us of yesteryear. This most unlikely model for this was a really good sport. Thanks Kristin.
This group called WineBrew was a group of fantastic young musicians. This was just a shot of them hamming it up and playing to each other and mesmerizing the crowd that had gathered. They played a huge assortment of styles from blues to classic rock and on to more modern stuff. Not only great music but accomplished showmanship. Best of luck WineBrew.
This is a display set up by my daughter for our studio shoot for class. I thought it was such a beautiful set and took a photo of it. We had such a great and productive shoot with a lot accomplished and we had a lot of fun. It is great to share the passion of photography with my talented little girl.
My Niece and her son came and helped us out on a day we have to work in the studio for class. We were desperate and I know how she hates to have her photo taken but she said yes and I am so happy with what I got. They were both great models. Nattie is very shy but once she warmed up and we all started to have some fun the cameras were clicking away. At this point the little guy had been stomping around in the heels but when we wanted his photo in them that was a different story. Super fun day with super great models.
This is a nice sunny day in California. They have just redone the road here and the sky was so blue and the clouds so white. What a beautiful day!
This is what I got from bringing home the little caterpillars that I found at a restaurant in Menifee near the campus. This is the only guy to survive. I took him out and released him on my grapevines. I know he will eat a lot of leaves very quickly, but it is Autumn and they will all turn brown and fall very shortly anyway. Bon appetit!!!
I have always loved rain, but now that I am a farmer I ADORE rain! My trees need it desperately and we have such restrictions on water use here in CA. Everything gets washed that we are not allowed to hose off any more. It is more important than ever. Sorry for the flood victims but thankful for our rain.
Oh my, I think I may finally have it! I at least half way understand my flash. All these years I just refused to use it unless I had absolutely no other choice and then I just said, "I hate artificial, I love natural light." It is amazing when you can actually get what you want WITH your flash! Thanks Teach Hanz.
Sarah came to help us out with our fashion shoots and she was fantastic! She started out a little timid and shy but when she changed into this outfit the shy little Sarah disappeared. What a little hottie. Thanks for the great job Sarah.
What fun! Dress up for a fashion shoot. Many hats, scarves, gloves, jewels and other accessories. Great energy from the models. The only problem was having enough time to do all that we imaged. So many clothes, so many ideas, so little time.
We had a great fun shoot with the Pierce family. This little doll was very interested in everything around her and really kept us hopping. Great imagination and fun to explore the waterfall. The good news, nobody fell in. She took me into the jungle looking for Lions, Tigers, and Bears, Oh My!!!
Wiped out in seconds while watching Over the Hedge with Poppa. That was quick!
