Running on the beach

Encinitas Portrait Photographer

Run Free

There’s something about watching my little girl run down the beach barefoot and carefree. Capturing it in the camera is another story. I think I broke a sweat.

January Sunset

Tonights sunset was incredible. When I saw the firey display I was in awe. I hope you enjoy the view from my side of the camera…

Isn’t life beautiful?

My Angel

Posing and saying "Cheese"

More "Cheese" please...

Someone got a new lens…any guesses?  I love my new 50mm 1.8 lens and have already noticed a big difference in my photos. Right off the bat its shallow depth of field is awesome. It’s my first prime lens but not my last.

It’s beginning to look a lot like Autumn, in San Diego…

Autumn Leaf in San Diego

Today it was cool and breezy, an unusual day in early October in San Diego. It actually rained for a few minutes too!   I had to wear my North Face fleece with my shorts and sandals today, it was that cold! This leaf blew into my yard so I thought I would get my camera and take the photo. BRRRRR!!

1/500, f/6.3, ISO 200, focal length 33 mm and exposure comp -2/3 and I shoot RAW.

Wavecrest Woodie Meet 2010

Wavecrest Woodie Meet is the largest of its kind in the country. Held each September at Moonlight Beach in Encinitas, CA. It draws up to 300 wooden-bodied cars for a weekend of car and surf-related activities. This year marks the 31st anniversary of Wavecrest!

I didn’t want to just take photos of cars so I went for creativity. I hope you enjoyed my trip to the Woodie show. These are beautiful cars to photograph with a lot of history to tell.

Dandelions and little girls

What is it about dandelions that are so intriguing to the little ones? Every weed we pass on our walk she finds beauty and must tear then hold and then watch as the tiny seeds are whisked away effortlessly by the breeze. The concentration in her eyes is precious. The fact she finds beauty in weeds is fascinating.
