Gideon a little over 5 months old

The past couple of weeks have been crazy with wedding season starting back up. This past Friday I finally had a chance to grab a few pictures of Gideon at 5 months. I shot a few images of him sitting up before Gideon and I headed out to lunch at Tito’s Tacos with my buddy Fred.  Gideon has no problem sitting up on his own now.  He can sit for a long time until eventually he leans too far one way and tips over.  Luckily he has a hard head like me. I plan to shoot some more pics this week and probably some video also.

He is such a cute little man! My husband and I almost used the name Gideon, which I LOVE, for our last child he ended up being Sheamus though!

Gideon is a beautiful grandchild, but your photography is true art. The moments you captured are wonderful. Thank you.

Mike Patti

Yesterday afternoon, I met up with my good friend Mike Patti to shoot some quick headshots before we headed out to see a movie. We spent about 30 minutes grabbing some shots around the outside of his house and then in his studio before heading off to see “I Love You, Man.” When I first met Mike last fall and found out he is a film composer I knew we would hit it off. I love film scores and have ever since the first time I heard John William’s score for Star Wars as a kid. Film scores make up the majority of my iTunes library. Many times after getting home from seeing a movie I will jump onto iTunes and buy a few selections from the movie I just watched.

Mike is extremely talented. I remember the first time Victoria and I went over to Mike’s house to have dinner with him and his wife Lynne. After dinner Mike took me into his studio and showed me some of the pieces he had composed for TV and movies. I was in awe. He even threw a piece together right in front of me as we watched a clip from a movie he was working on. Mike has a bright future in front of him. I hope he invites me along one day when he is conducting pieces for a film so I can grad some shots of him in action. Here are a few of my favorite shots from yesterday. Make sure you check out the video at the bottom of this post to see an example of Mike’s talent. You can see some more videos like this by going to Mike’s site.

Marina Del Rey Wedding Photography – Cesar & Kelsey – 03/21/09

Last weekend I photographed Cesar and Kelsey’s wedding day. Although I like to travel for weddings, it is nice to stay close to home at times. I don’t think Cesar and Kelsey could of picked any locations closer to my home. The ceremony took place at the beautiful St. Augustine Church in Culver City and the reception took place in Marina Del Rey on a FantaSea cruise around the marina. Here are some of my favorite images from their wedding day.

The day started off at Phazes Salon in Marina Del Rey with Kelsey getting her hair done.

After leaving the church we had a little time before the cruise boat left the dock so we did a quick photoshoot in Marina Del Rey. Thanks to my friend Claire Barrett for showing me some amazing locations in the Marina. I hope to shoot there again soon.

I just love when the guest help out with the lighting. Kelsey’s dad is capturing the other angle for this shot. I am so glad we clicked the shutter at the same time.
