Yesterday I went over to Studio City to see Wendy & Sketch and their darling little boy, E.J. or Eugene John who I also like to call "my boyfriend". I met the 3 of them at a fundraiser party a while ago and they ended up bidding on and winning the portrait session I had donated. I was so thrilled because I was just dying to photograph E.J. anyway. He's about 7 months old and couldn't possibly be more adorable if he tried...and so incredibly good natured too. Here he is waiting for me to arrive. :) We decided to strip him down for a few on the favorite fur throw. Good boy didn't pee on it or anything.

They are a fabulous couple who are getting married on this year's most popular date, 7/7/07. This particular date has created something of a phenomenon in the wedding industry...literally everyone is booked, it's like there aren't enough vendors around to take care of all of the brides who want to get married on this date. Luckily though Nikki and I managed to find eachother and I'm really looking forward to their wedding. Here are a few images from our session. This turned out to be a terrific "D.C." location since you can see all of the monuments from up on the hill as well as Arlington Cemetary...all from the same location. Can you spot the Washington Monument and Lincoln Memorial in the background? These were lit by the
