This morning I was texting with a photographer friend who mentioned something about "talk about what you mentioned in your Rangefinder article." In typical me fashion, my response was "huh?" And then "oh yeah I did an interview with them" but I had yet to actually see an article nor could I remember when it would be published. But apparently it is in print in the current issue and so I immediately had to go find the article so that I could read about myself...mostly to make sure that I didn't say anything stupid or otherwise publicly humiliate myself. And I was very glad that there seem to be no immediate or obvious reasons for embarrassment. And therefore I am happy to share it here. Click here to go to the article if you want to actually read the words. :) RANDOM STORY ALERT: Just in case anyone questions why my

2012 has definitely been the year of photographing the families of my past wedding clients. I'm not sure how many this year but there were a lot and I will try to blog all of them...and then I will count them. One of the greatest things about photographing both weddings and portraits is that I get to watch all of these amazing people whom I truly adore join their lives together and then watch their families grow and change over the years. I photographed Amy & John's wedding way back in 2004 in Easton, Maryland and I was so excited when they got in touch about shooting some portraits of the whole family while they vacationed together in Sonoma over the summer. Here is one of my faves of the whole group.

Photographing little ones is always a challenge, but a fun one. You never know what they are going to do, what sort of mood they are going to be in and whether or not they feel like having a camera pointed at them on that particular day. Eloise & Myer are the most darling little people and have such distinct personalities. It's so much fun to watch them grow up and change so much every time I get to see them. You've got to love the toddler fashion statement (backwards bike helmet) and the "loving" sibling relationship in these.
A couple of weeks ago I packed up my gear and headed over to the west side to meet up with Jonathan & Lacey LaCour and their darling daughter Colette. Having known Jonathan for years through the photography industry, meeting their daughter was like staring at a tiny blonde version of Jonathan. It actually took me by surprise just a little bit. But what an old soul this child is. Even at 16 months she seemed entirely her own person and not really much of a baby at all anymore. After a few pictures around their place, Lacey, Colette and I decided to go and visit nearby Venice Beach. And boy did Colette have a great time, frolicking in the waves, the sand, chasing birds, chasing tourists, you name it. She was entirely fearless and it was fun to watch.
Introducing the lovely Darden/ Ferrari family session starring a very beautiful and spirited little girl named Phoenix. This was one of my first sessions in the new studio and I found it to be a great place to shoot toddlers...simply because they are on the move so much. One of the benefits of having a natural light studio being that we are not confined to just the spot that happens to be lit. And when shooting toddlers, it is important to be able to chase them around and to keep them moving because, well...you really don't have a lot of choice in the matter. Unless you want to hear a lot of wailing. :)
