Fall comes to Southern California (today)!

As I write this, clouds cover the sky and golden leaves drift like giant snowflakes on two sides of my office! I'm hopeful that summer might be over (90 degrees at the beginning of the week)!
Halloween is tomorrow - very exciting stuff -- be sure to take lots of pictures of the excited children before they're too busy eating candy. The big new is that my website is redesigned and up at You'll now be able to see the galleries as they update with new photos. Here's one of the newest family shots of the best hairdresser in Pasadena, Carrie Sorensen of Faccia Bella (on Walnut) and her amazing family.
Last week we took some beautiful photos of a budding young actress -- I'll hold off on letting you know her name, but watch for her.

Time flies, eh?

Since we were last together, I've been to a photography seminar, done three photo shoots and have begun a design on a new website. Should be ready to 'go live' in a week or two! The goal is to get more of the current images up - it has been a little too difficult to update my old custom design. I'll put up a few of this weeks images in a day or two!

Just back from a little birthday safari! Happy Birthday Zoran and Lily!

We've just celebrated birthdays from Redondo Beach to Santa Rosa where I got a few portraits in. My niece's (most photographed family award) has a 6 month old - now sitting up -- a world of new possibilities. I got a few images of her with a lensbaby (interesting spring looking thing, you focus by pushing it up, down or around)! Here is a sample of what it does. The focus area is very small, which really brings all attention to her eyes - which was where I focused.

I also got some images of my lovely daughter Lily, who celebrated her 23rd and is helping J&J with the three kids this fall. Here is one of my favorites of her.
