Somebody is earning his keep. Fletch spends most of his day shaking the Earth with his barking magic. However, this is the first time I’ve been able to catch it with the camera. It’s like the Holy Grail of Fletch photos. I love how ridiculous he looks…..like he’s singing a tune, and going for the high note. I’m going to teach him “Loving You” by Minnie Riperton.

I recently had a fantastic shoot with a sweet and beautiful gal named Bernadette. I had taken acting headshots a while back for her lovely cousin, Samin. Bernadette’s family was in town visiting, and they wanted to work in a portrait shoot for her. Yay! She said that she wanted some moody and mysterious images. Awesome. She’s such a fun young lady, so I had to work in a few smiley, happy ones too.
Bernadette asked me if she could jump. My answer to this question is always “YES!”. Disclaimer (my answer may not be “yes” if you are posing under a ceiling fan, if you are more than 8 months pregnant, or if our shoot is on the edge of a cliff). : )
Of course, we had to get a photo with her wonderful mom.
Bernadette, it was super meeting you. Thanks for such a cool and collaborative shoot!
Sometimes, you just need to slide your feet into some sand, float in warm water, and let the sun bring your freckles out of hibernation. Yep. I can’t believe I was able to limit myself to only a few photos, but here they are. Even though Saint George is the Patron Saint of Soldiers, I’d like to think that St. George Island is the Patron Saint of Pale Skin.
Mary, Mary….why ya buggin?
After eating my almonds, I thought the plastic bag they were in made a cool, creepy filter. Beach trickery!
Mary might kill me for this one, but it makes me so daggum happy!
Hey Atlanta, how have you been? I still love you.
Today, it’s particularly nice to be me. I hope sometime this weekend, you have an experience that makes you feel this great.
Tonie’s shoot was almost too easy. She is able to change her look and expression in an instant, and she possesses an enviable confidence in front of the camera. Also, she makes me feel really lazy. It sounds like she books a ton of work, AND she’s cutting her second album. She mentioned maybe wanting some shots for the album cover, so we got to collaborate and play around a bit during her last set-up. I love when a shoot turns a little more edgy and artsy. Thanks Tonie for being so daggum cool to photograph!
I’m sure this will sound remarkably dorky (especially to a teenager), but girls like Jackie give me hope for the future. She’s fun and animated, but also very smart, grounded, and kind. I can only hope her example rubs off on all the other guys and gals her age.
I had a blast working on a recent project with her lovely mom, Elisa. It was really cool to see her again and get to meet her daughter. Jackie was wonderfully effortless in front of the camera. Seriously, how do I get so lucky? Jackie, thanks for being such a joy to photograph!
This is too lovely to not be shared. If you’re lucky to have some alone time today, enjoy it!
