A Christmas Surprise!

Taryn's mother is a very talented artist. She is marvelously skilled at transferring a photograph from print to canvas with India Ink or pastels. One of her favorite subjects is the horse. When we shot a wedding with horses last May, immediately she asked"Did you get any good photos of the horses?". With that in mind, we setup a secret shoot with Jessica, our totally awesome bride from May. We spent over two hours with Jessica and her beautiful equine companions crafting the perfect gift. The secret was pretty safe too, though Carson did spill the beans about riding and leading one of the horses!

Yesterday our mother opened a disk of high-resolution, extra-sharp horse photos. Over 200 of them. We hope you enjoy this selection of those, it was very hard to choose!

Our gracious hostess, Jessica & her horse Chico.

We were blessed with majestic skies for this shoot!


Angus looking very regal.

Nimitz & Crystal's Engagement

We recently spent a wonderful afternoon with Nimitz & Crystal. They are very fun, outgoing and great to be around! We cannot wait for their August wedding. It was a semi-challenging shoot. They had some super cool ideas for their session involving friends and bikes. Nimitz loves to ride his bike and one of the extra special shots has everything to do with that! In fact, that one is so special it's not even ready for release yet!

We started things off at their house in Mira Mesa for the bike photos then scooted over to La Jolla Shores for the sweet sunset photos you see below. After that we headed to one of their favorite places, Extraordinary Desserts. Yum, yum!

It is a beautiful thing to capture the love between two people, and these two are about as cute as you can get. We will blog more later, but until then please enjoy these pre-Christmas teasers!

Gotta have that bike in there!

Ellie & Tenley for Christmas!

Holiday sessions are so intimate when done in the home. Children are often more cooperative and parents a bit more relaxed. Having a killer tree to shoot in front of and a marvelous ceiling for flash bouncing and well, I love it! Here is a selection from our in-home shoot with this pair of charmers. Aren't they simply adorable?
