  • Video: Old Sacramento

    Thursday Morning in Old Sacramento The Background My latest video project started out as a way to take advantage of an opportunity. Over the past few months I’ve had to travel to downtown Sacramento, CA every two weeks. Not knowing the city very well, I started arriving early to explore a bit, and found myself […]

  • Video: Flat Stanley’s Adventure

    Stanley Lambchop was smashed flat in the night by a bulletin board that fell on him while he slept. But the newly-minted Flat Stanley takes advantage of his new shape, and goes on to have many adventures. That’s the premise of the book Flat Stanley: His Original Adventure!, and the basis of countless second grade […]

  • Video: Backpacking From a Dog’s Point-of-View

    So there we were, slowly making our way up the switchbacks towards the ridge overlooking Silver Lake in the Sierra Nevada. All in a line: human, dog, dog, human. Tramp, tramp, tramp. Little puffs of dust with each step. Gee, I thought, the poor dogs are right there at foot-level, eating all the dust. I […]

  • Wedding Pictures in Foresthill, CA: Jackie and Mike

    Couples don’t come much nicer than Jackie and Mike. They seem to click when they’re together, intuitively knowing what the other person wants or needs. They “get” each other — you can see that they belong together. We were privileged to photograph this amazing couple’s wedding at the Forest House Lodge in Foresthill, CA, and the […]

  • Video: Camping in the Sierra Nevada with Jasper

    My latest video project is a quick montage of video clips and photos I shot while on a camping trip in the Sierra Nevada mountains with my good buddy Dakota and dog Jasper. As is often the case in the Sierra Nevada in late summer, we were hammered by a series of thunderstorms that kept us reading in our tents and playing chess in the truck. While I only had one clear sunset over the course of a few days, there was usually some time during the day we could get out and about, and we tried to make the most of it.

  • Photo Tip: Photograph Storm Light for Dramatic Photos

    While it’s easy to think about putting your camera away when a storm rolls in, that’s often the best time to capture dramatic light, and potentially make dramatic photos.

  • Engagement Photos in Lotus, CA: Jackie & Mike

    I had a great time photographing Jackie and Mike for their engagement photos in Lotus, California. They wanted the shoot to be outdoorsy and in nature, so we went down along the South Fork American River, and were able to catch the tail-end of the fall color. Looking forward to photographing their wedding in Foresthill […]

  • Baby Pictures in Apple Hill, CA: Drake

    Watching Drake grow in his first year has been a lot of fun, and I’ve been honored to be a part of it in some small way. We gathered at Larson Apple Barn in the Apple Hill area of Camino, CA to document both him and his cousin Jordan as they pass the one-year mark. […]

  • Baby Pictures at Sunset: Drake at 9 Months

    When it came time to do Drake’s nine-month-old portraits, Sydney said she wanted to do something a little different from some of our previous shoots, such as three and six months. After thinking a bit about what we had done before, and what others were doing, I realized I hadn’t seen many baby pictures done […]

  • Wedding Photos in Walnut Creek, CA: Celine & Willy

    Celine and Willy are not only an incredibly sweet couple, but amazingly relaxed and poised in the face of chaos. All weddings are, by nature, demonstrations in controlled chaos, but nothing seemed to rattle or stress these two (such as the bitter wind that kicked up during the rehearsal, or the dress arriving two hours late).
