Leavin' On a Jet Plane

We leave today for NYC. We have an INCREDIBLE engagement shoot tomorrow in Manhattan and I just can't wait. I'll try to have images up Sunday or Monday at the latest. Cyndie and I are celebrating our 8th anniversary in a couple of weeks so we decided to kill two birds with one stone and stay a few extra days to celebrate. So after the shoot we have 4 days of bumming around the city which will be just amazing. The next Saturday I'm shooting the New York couple's wedding so be looking for that soon too!

Well I gotta go find a coat to take. Its supposed to snow this week!

I was putting one of Makenzie's Christmas presents in the garage and when I opened it up this was what I was greeted by! I hate spiders especially black widows.


Date Night

I took Makenzie out a few nights ago for coffee. She's so much fun. This picture shows a few things: #1. my beautiful daughter and #2. Starbucks brought out the Holiday Cups! Sad as it seems, here in southern California where we have no seasons, the holiday cups are one of the things that make it feel like Christmas time... atleast for me. After the holiday I promise to get back to regular posting (weddings, engagements... etc.) Also next week Cyndie and I leave for New York again for a spectacular "Christmas in New York" engagement session. Look for that soon!

Cyndie, Makenzie and I are having our first solo holiday tomorrow... just the three of us. I'm actually really excited. We don't really care that much for traditional Thanksgiving fare so we're gonna start our own tradition and make some really great steaks. A good filet beats turkey any day.

Hope you guys have a wonderful Thanksgiving.

Travel Prints

Last month I took a trip up the coast to unwind as wedding season was coming to a close. Now that its officially over (I've got a couple weddings in December but that's it for the year) in addition to the mountain of albums we're working on I'll be getting all of the images from the trip finished up and I'll be creating a gallery online to look through and order prints.

I'm still working out the details but the prints will most likely be "Giclee Prints", a printing technique that offers stunning reproductions on fine art paper. These are not your typical photographic prints. I'm super excited about this. Keep checking back. I hope to have everything taken care of and ready to go in the next month or so.

Back Home

Well I'm home. I have a shoot in L.A. tonight so Cyndie, Makenzie and I went out to get some Chinese for lunch before I take off. Like I've said here before we love Chinese but we've had a rough time finding a restaurant that compares to our old favorite back in Texas. So we keep searching. While Cyndie and I have yet to be thrilled Makenzie just loves every place we go. All she cares about is whether they have steamed rice. Here she is polishing off the rest of the bowl. I wish I could show you the mess she made eating that whole thing (you can see some of it in front of her plate there) but the busboy just cleaned the table. Haha.

I took this weekend off and drove out to Lake Havasu to hang out with my brother. We just went and saw "American Gangster" (great film by the way) and now we're grabbing a late dinner at the only place still open... Denny's. Mmmmmmm.

Last night I had a shoot in Beverly Hills (that's where I wanna be). My friend Zack came along to help me and after the event we headed out to grab some sushi. After an awesome meal I got a call from my good friend Nick so we went out, grabbed a drink, talked shop and hung out for a while. If you're a photographer and want some inspiration or even if you're not a photographer and just wanna see some pretty pictures, go check out Nick's stuff. He's amazing.

Here are a few pictures of Makenzie from Halloween and the pumpkins we carved (its kind of hard taking pictures of jack-o-lanterns). She had so much fun and doesn't care too much about candy which is nice.
