Hooray for these adorable "kids" who've been together since high school--my most favorite couple to photograph! :)

another amazing sunset...

"Clouds come floating into my life, no longer to carry rain or usher storm, but to add color to my sunset sky."

senior picture time

I've known this handsome guy since he was born--which clearly makes me really old! But it's been fun watching him, along with his two older brothers, grow up to become amazing young men.

weather alert

Lightning is almost as hard to photograph as a rambunctious toddler. We had quite a light show tonight, not something that happens around here very often and certainly not in June, so I was pretty excited to capture a small bolt before the thunderstorm was over.

graduation is coming

Isn't she beautiful? And check out those stunning eyes! It's that time of year again--spring is a great time to get some last-minute senior portraits. It's amazing how much kids change from the beginning of the school year to the end so it's a good time to capture them just the way they are when they graduate.

Meet "Walter", an 800-year-old old-growth Coast Redwood tree at Alliance Redwoods Camp. He's a beauty, isn't he?

3rd grade art project

This is a fun project I'm working on as the art docent for Spencer's 3rd grade class. Today we did figure drawing of bodies in motion (each of the kids in the class took a turn modeling), so now I'll take all of the pictures and turn them into a digital "flip book". Here's a quick preview of Spencer's drawings of his classmates. The final video will have 16 pictures drawn by 16 different kids. Cool!

sixth picture in the sixth folder

I saw this on a friend's blog: find the sixth picture in the sixth folder of your "My Pictures" file and put it on your blog. This is my youngest on the carousel at Disneyland, taken a couple of years ago. Don't worry, the motion blur is on purpose--I shot this for an assignment for a photography class I was taking. Here are a few more from that same trip, it's pretty easy to find lots of motion at Disneyland...

It's about time I got back to editing some pictures. Fortunately, these are the most wonderful friends who are very patient!
