Little brothers

Another set of beautiful children that I have been lucky enough to have seen from the times they were born. Jonas is almost 4 and his brother Christian is almost 2.

Kids are tough - but little boys are even more challenging to photograph as sitting still is not a concept they yet grasp! I had to chase them all over the beach and the playground - making it a game - but in the end it was lots of fun and worth it!

Family of Friends

Ahhh my little Raguse babies are growing up so fast! I love shooting my friends families - watching them grow and change. Mom and I were remembering when Jackson was born and now he just turned 4! In addition now he has his beautiful sister Ryan to play with!

Family portraits are a tricky thing because you are at the mercy of children and their ever changing temperaments. We had a few moments of light before the clouds completely blotted out the sun and the cold wind picked up - making it un-ideal for our youngest subject - but we did capture a few.

Jackson is such a sweet older brother to his baby sister Ryan. We got to play for a few hours which was so wonderful! Then we got some of these wonderful family moments.

I felt a little sad during this shoot. We plan to do another in the next few weks - but knowing I am moving away from LA and will no longer see them on a regular basis - to watch and photograph them as they grow saddens me. I guess I will just have to come back and visit as much as possible!

Black Board Eats

So I have a friend who started this AMAZING website / newsletter with incredible deals from restaurants all around town called BlackBoardEats. If you sign up for their newsletter you get weekly offers of specials from outstanding restaurants to try around Los Angles - and this recession-ista couldn't be more thrilled.

In an effort to help out a friend with a vision as well as an excuse to further practice my craft I have taken photos for some of the weekly restaurants offering specials. This one was my favorite because they ordered up this incredible grilled calamari for me to photograph.

The best part? They gave it to me to take home and it is DELISH!!!!

Check out BlackBoardEats for a special deal next week being offered by this very yummy Italian eatery on West 3rd.

Now pardon me while I go pour myself a glass of wine and enjoy the fruits of my labor!

Maybe there is something to this food photography thing?
