Here are a few pictures taken just before Halloween. Whether a superhero or a villain, I just love seeing little kids in their costumes. I’m also really surprised how quickly kids figure out trick or treating. Last year my youngest, just turning two, wasn’t too sure about knocking on a stranger’s door. This year, at age three, he was was up in the front of the pack yelling “trick or treat!!”

Though having two boys with lots of crazy energy, their mega candy stash scares me. So as I did last year, I offered them $5 (maybe $10 last year, but no one remembers, so it’s $5 this year) for their loot. They picked out five pieces of candy they wanted to keep and handed over the rest. Then I take them on a shopping spree ($5 can buy 5 hot wheels you know). They can combine their candy money or buy separately, but they are really happy to do this. Now what to do with their loot? Well after picking through my favorites and giving myself some extra energy for editing, I send it their school. They have a cool buy back program. A dentist in the area pays by the pound for the candy and donates the money to the school. So we get rid of our candy and the school gets some extra cash, a win-win!

And finally my freaked out pilot. He must have left water boiling on the stove.

It’s officially October! Just a few weeks until Halloween. And what better way to get ready for Halloween than some photos with pumpkins?

But beware the holidays are just around the corner….82 days until Christmas. If you are thinking of getting some family portraits done at the beach, natural area, or other setting contact me now. October is booked and November only has two sessions left!

Recently I photographed Beauty on the Rocks, a new salon in North Park. They needed some photos for their website and facebook page. Esther, the owner is super cool and you can tell she had a vision when she designed it. The brick, vibrant colors, graffiti wall, and decor come together so well. For more info, check out their website: www.beautyontherocks.net.

Leanne and Chase scheduled a session with me during their San Diego vacation. They day they arrived, we headed to beach for some pictures. They were so fun and easy going. They rolled around in the sand, took a dip in the water, and did a lot of hugging and kissing while I captured it. I hope you two have fun while you are in San Diego! And a little peek of the happy couple!

Last weekend I had the opportunity to second shoot with David Hoffman up in LA. I had so much fun! It was so amazing seeing all the excitement, anticipation, and emotion of the day. Here are some photos of the reception. I’ll share some of the ceremony and formals in another post.
