Newborn Baby Photography Session


What a beautiful creation Mike and Elena have been blessed with! Elena entrusted me with capturing Finley's newborn photographs, and what a pleasure it was. Its indescribable how precious she is. What a calm peaceful feeling I had just from watching her sleep, which she did for the majority of the photoshoot. This is my second newborn photography session, and I hope to do more of them in the future!

Elena and Mike are already great parents. In fact, little Finley was delivered at the same hospital my wife will be at. So it was fun to hear about the experince and gather some info. Thanks for the tips Elena and Mike!

For this newborn photography session I used 100% natural light. Not only is this the easiest on the baby's developing eyes, but its also a very mobile setup! By utilizing prime lenses such as the Sigma 30mm f/1.4, Sigma 50mm f/1.4 and Canon 100mm f/2.8 L IS Macro I am able to maintain a fast shutter speed, low iso, and narrow depth of field.

Newborns grow very fast, in the first year they usually triple their weight. So if you want photographs of your newborn it is critical to schedule the session within the first two weeks of life. Depending on what types of pictures you are looking for the session can range for 2-4 hours. Of course, this includes diaper time, feedings, and lots of baby sleep! If your, expecting or know someone who is in San Diego or Temecula, please contact me to get the due date penciled in.

Family Photography Session | Encinitas, Ca

Its July but there is still June Gloom in San Diego? I'm not complaining though because the clouds are like giant soft boxes providing perfect light for portraits! Susan’s family session at the beach in Encinitas was no exception. There were clouds and it was great light for portraits. In fact this family photography session in san diego was in the evening, and the marine layer still hadnt burned off.

Susan had warned me that it was practically going to be a family reunion. Family were down from all over the country. The kids were excited for Disneyland and had a great time at the beach. I had a great time getting to meet everyone and play with the little kids. Capturing photographs of little kids is probably one of my favorite things to do. Its challenging because the photos are usually spontaneous. You've got to be interacting and almost playing with them while at the same time getting ready for that moment you need to press the shutter! My wife and I have a lil guy on the way so I'm sure you'll be seeing a lot more photos of kids on the blog!

Amanda+Julian = Married | Wedding Photography in Temecula

I feel so blessed when great couples like Amanda and Julian trust me to capture their wedding photographs. I love getting to witness so many special moments. From Amanda’s mom helping her get ready to Julian’s dad giving a great speech on how happy they are for Julian finding Amanda. As a Wedding Photographer in Temecula, this is what it is all about… capturing true love!

Amanda and Julian are very smart and decided to plan their own wedding. The venue was a beautiful estate in Temecula. The natural landscaping and age of the property gave it a very warm and earthy feel. Julian also added his own touch with a Kegerator he built and filled with home-made brew. And as you can see in the wedding pictures, their wedding vendors all did an amazing job and I highly recommend them…
