max and jake’s big race

Our good friends, Paula and Steve Cook, had their 2nd annual charity run and walk at Mission Trails Park yesterday. Their story is amazing and the work they have done for Rady’s Children’s Hostpital is admirable. You can read all about their event at Max and Jake’s Big Race. I can’t believe how much work they put into organizing their charity.

I’m not much of a morning person, but for such a great cause and a great opportunity to get me and my whole family out for a trail walk, I was willing to get out of bed a little earlier. Our kids had a great time including Jackie who I carried on my back the whole time while trying to shoot photos and video.

taylor turns 5

I don’t just shoot weddings. Sure, I’ll even photograph a kids party. What’s not to like about a bunch of kids running around eating cake?

To further enhance my video skills, I photographed and video taped our friend’s daughter’s birthday party.

The party was held at a children’s art studio in North Park, the Rare Hare Studio. What a great place for a party! The kids had a blast doing all sorts of customized art projects for Taylor’s butterfly themed party. For those of you that don’t know, my sister-in-law, runs an art studio which offers art classes for kids with an emphasis on using recycled materials. You should deinitely check out her website and see all the cool projects kids have done there.

So, if you’re having a party for your child, but already have enough on your plate without having to worry about taking photos or video, give me a call.

My first blog post of 2009!? It’s been too long.

I shot Angela and Tim’s wedding a while ago and now they have a baby boy!

When I tell people about newborn portraits in the hospital, most people just don’t see the point. They think a hospital room is not the most attractive place for photos. Of course both mom and dad are not usually looking their best having just been through a LONG day or night or both.

But when they see the photos, there’s just nothing like it. Certainly light years better than all the phone-camera photos sent out! Plus, a newborn really only looks like that for a few days so you really only have one chance to capture a brand new baby.

So I am basically “on-call” until the baby is born. Then I go to the hospital, take the portraits, and then rush home and get them processed and posted within a day. This way the parents have some great photos to share with their friends and family instead of the low quality photos most people send out.

Another new feature for 2009 is full high definition video mixed in with the still photos. As you will see, the video really adds a whole new dimension to the slideshows. You get the best of both worlds!

See the high def version of the video/slideshow here. (it’s much better than the size below.)
(The password is the mother’s first name, all lower case. Not too hard to figure out from this blog post!)


Congratulations to Angela and Tim!
