Favorite Lens | Glendale and Long Beach Newborn Baby Portrait Photographer

Before I started photography, I would have thought choosing a favorite lens would be pretty difficult.  Turns out it’s not difficult at all.  Without question, my favorite lens is the Canon 50mm f/1.2.  This baby stays on my camera 95% of the time during portrait sessions.  Maybe more.  I love that it allows me to […]

Peggy - It’s a big lens but the photos are awesome. Who knew when I bought my Nikon?July 25, 2010 – 8:27 pm

Evan - I like this lens, too. Too bad I have to give priority to the primary photographer. Otherwise, I’d use it for myself!July 20, 2010 – 10:26 am

Evan - I really like the pattern on the proof boxes. It’s simple but still attractive. It does not try to show up the beauty of your photos.July 15, 2010 – 2:22 pm

Arcadia and Pasadena Child and Baby Portrait Photographer | Fine Art Canvases

Fine art canvases are an awesome and modern way of displaying your photos in your home.  What are they, exactly?  They’re photos printed directly on canvas, coated for protection, and stretched on a frame.  The best thing about them is that they come ready to hang!  No need to worry about matting or framing. We […]

Darren - A work of art! What a great way to preserve a memory and decorate the house.July 25, 2010 – 8:37 pm

Marci - That is a GREAT idea!!! Yet another budding idea blossoming from a great mind. :>)

Instead of having to sit for a portrait painting session…here’s a perfect alternative and so attractive!July 6, 2010 – 1:55 pm

Evan - Awesome canvas. The border you chose matches the image very nicely. It’s more interesting than a frame.July 6, 2010 – 11:23 am

Chi - Phillip is endlessly cute, and you are skilled at bringing that out in him. He could be in the middle of an elementary school brawl and you’d still make him look cute.June 22, 2010 – 12:39 pm

The day started out with an Easter egg hunt, perfect for three- and four-year-old kids.  I don’t know about you, but […]

Evan - You have to admit that the Easter egg hunt is harder in black & white. Both the stones and the eggs are gray! As always, your images are adorable. These are the kinds of photos that parents will look at one, two, or more decades from now.June 15, 2010 – 7:41 am

Turning the Lens Around | Pasadena and Los Angeles Children’s and Baby Portrait Photographer

It’s been a long time since I’ve had professional portraits taken of myself, not since getting married last year.  (Stay tuned for our wedding photos on the blog in several weeks!)  I needed photos of myself for this website, and I realized I needed new portraits when I looked through my files, and the only […]
