JENASI 1ST BIRTHDAY!

JENASI 1ST BIRTHDAY PARTY BLOG

Last weekend I had the pleasure of documenting Jenasi's first birthday! The family that hired me is quite possibly the most considerate and nicest people I have ever met. At one point I felt like I was going to faint because the heat was getting to me. The dad even brought me a cold towel!

Before you roll your eyes and tell me to toughen up, just know that the day was unseasonably hot; I am talking about mid 80's in February, people. I didn't get a chance to eat before I showed up, and half way through I had to sit down and eat something because the heat was getting to me! Who says a photographer's job is easy??

Anyways, the family planned an absolutely beautiful party! Completed with carriage rides, obligatory princess bounce house, a taco stand, and other games that the kids thoroughly enjoyed. It looks like neighbors from the entire block showed up to the party! I really had a lot of fun hanging out with everybody and photographing this event.

ASHLEY & JORDAN | CLAREMONT COLLEGES & DOWNTOWN

ASHLEY & JORDAN FINAL

I met up with this gorgeous couple last week, and we did the session around claremont colleges, and the old amtrack station in downtown Claremont. The whole shoot just screamed VINTAGE from start to finish. So I decided to veer off my usual "modern" look and go for a vintage edit this time. It took a lot longer than usual, so big thanks to Ashley and Jordan for their patience!

Ashley and Jordan brought two cool beach cruisers, we even had another fellow photog asking to take a picture of the bikes! Jordan is actually an aspiring photographer as well and he mainly does photography of motorcross sports for now. These two were just soooooo cute with each other and I had so much fun hanging out with them. They've been together for a while and it was clear their love for each other just kept on growing... Couples like this make me LOVE my job as a photographer. There is nothing else better than capturing two people in love on film. Anyways, enough for my sappy comments, haha. Now enjoy the pictures!

MEET COREY AND MADDY.....AGAIN!

Maddy & Corey Final1

I photographed Corey while he was about 1 month old, and look how big he's grown!! I was honored to be asked back for a second portrait session. He was definitely more playful than the last time so I was able to capture a better variety of shots. For this shoot, we even talked the grandparents into taking pictures with the kids!! The session was actually for Maddy's THIRD birthday but she was more interested in the cupcake than the photos, lol. I was still able to get some shots of Maddy before she left us.... ahhh, one of the challenges of photographing children!

HENRY CHEN PHOTOGRAPHY WORKSHOP

HENRY CHEN WORKSHOP FINAL-1

As a way of preparing for all of my portrait sessions, I always do a google search on the location I will be shooting. Regardless if I have been there before. I just want to get a good feel of the location before I show up to meet with my clients. It was one of those days when I just randomly typed in "claremont colleges engagement session" and I stumbled upon Henry Chen Photography's page. For the countless hours that I wonder (my wife would say "lost") on the information super highway, this find was definitely one of the best things that had ever happened to me in my young career as a photographer.

I was literally mesmerized by Henry's photos on his website/blog! I probably spent the next 3 hours or so going through the pages on the website. I then cold-emailed Henry and just said hello and said I really like his work. I thought nothing would come out of it since I am literally, one of his thousand friends on facebook. I then emailed Henry again, asking for some advice he could give me on an upcoming wedding, that's when he invited me to come take part in the workshop.

The workshop was jam packed with information that a new wedding photographer would need; marketing, gear, work flow, a mock shoot as directed by Henry, and even income taxes at one point...yes, I know, exciting stuff. But hey, if you want to run a successful business like Henry, you gotta do what you gotta do.

Without boring everybody to tears, it was a great, great, great, did I say great...workshop. I think one word that keeps coming to my mind would be "inspirational." Henry was such a down to earth guy, very personable, and just by hanging out with him a few hours, I understand how he can become successful in such a short amount of time. Hey Henry, if you are reading this, remember the deal we made!

I know I know, here are the pictures from the mock shoot!

BABY JAYCE PORTRAIT SESSION

JAYCE FINAL

Intorducing Baby Jayce!! You might remember from my previous post, I shot this gorgeous family a few months ago for a family/maternity session, and here's the little guy that was hiding in mommy's belly. He's absolutely perfect in everyway and I am so honored the family asked me back to take more pictures of the baby. We 'tried' to get big brother AJ in on a few shots, but you can see from below we were able to get ONE shot in for the two brothers. Enjoy the pictures.

Oh, I am also trying out a few different things with the picture formatting and logo...it's a work in progress and I welcome any comment. Thanks!

Big brother AJ hiding under the bed because he didn't want to take a picture! It turned out he had a valid excuse...he was running a high fever! I guess I'll just have to come by the third time, ha.

CRISTINA & ERNEST ENGAGEMENT SESSION

CC-BLOG-4

If you looked up the words "cute couple" in the dictionary, you will find a picture of these two right next to it. I don't think I have ever laughed as much or as hard during a shoot as I did with this couple. It was essentially a laughfest from start to finish! They are actually planning a destination wedding in Costa Rica (where Cristina's family is originally from), I am sooooo excited for them! I am not shooting the wedding, YET, but I wouldn't mind traveling to Costa Rica....I am just saying. For the shoot they even brought a picnic setup with hot noodles for breakfast. How 'cute' was that?? I honestly had soooo much fun with them, and I wish them nothing but the best life has to offer!

Ernest also has a company that sells specialized car parts. Check out his company Reset Motorsports, LLC for additional information.
