San Diego photo shoots

October 19, 2013

A recent trip back to my old ‘stomping grounds’ in San Diego to visit family and friends, swim in that warm water again, and meet with several families for photo shoots – yielded these images and more…


Not too long ago, on a very hot day in Portland, I decided to take the family to the Oregon coast to cool off a bit.  Seventy miles later, we found the coast socked in with a marine layer – no sun!  Drove a bit further south and found a sweet pocket of sun at Manzanita.  But, we had a price to pay for this sun – the wind was howling and we were being sandblasted, not to mention very chilly.  The beach day didn’t last long, but I did manage to get a few shots of the only ones having a good time in the wind…..a few kiteboarders.

Just another day ‘capturing’ moments, curls, and another supermodel-in-training…

A little madness in the Spring
Is wholesome even for the King,
But God be with the Clown —
Who ponders this tremendous scene —
This whole Experiment of Green —
As if it were his own!

San Diego shoot

January 16, 2012

I recently undertook a short visit to my old stomping grounds – San Diego.  It was nice to catch up with family and friends as well as soak in some of that good old California sunshine.  While down that way, I also set up photo shoots with several families.  Here are some shots from one of the shoots…….

New Year’s Day 2012

If the first day of this year is any indication of the year ahead, it’s gonna be great fun!  We took the kids, and us, on a sledding adventure up to Mt. Hood – we’ll be back soon…….
