Photo Booth Goes Mobile

I took the booth on the road this weekend and set it up at one of the season’s best tasting Christmas events – Dinner at Sam and Mari’s. They were kind enough to let me tack a red backdrop to the wall, and well, the rest is Christmas history. Click for more whacky photos! Read More

The Parinos

It’s hard not to get a good shot when your subject is as cute as Sophie, but there’s something else I like about this shot, and that is that is was not a posed shot. I saw her sitting there and took two quick shots in the (indoor) available light. Snap, snap! It took three Read More

Along with temperatures in the 50’s came the famous fog, which obliterated any hope of seeing any fireworks. Oh well… We did get to Read More

2010 St. Mary’s College High School Junior Prom

I was lucky enough to be asked to take a photos of a few kids on prom day. They chose Oakland’s serene Morcom Rose Garden as the venue. We spent some time spent looking for the “perfect spot for pictures”, which turned out to be a waste of time, because as you can see, I Read More
