Flying High

Toddlers are terrible creatures. When they decide they are finished, there’s not much you can do except throw them as high in the sky as you can. Just don’t forget to catch them when they come down.

Standing Tall

Watchful Mommy

The other day we spent the afternoon at Seaport Village to just get out and about for a while. It was a much needed break from the daily grind, and gave Kaleb a chance to roll around in the grass. What would such an excursion be without a camera slung over my shoulder? Ummm, an opportunity missed.

While Kaleb was doing his best to make a break for a nearby busy walkway, I chased him around, shoving my lens in his face, and blinding him with my flash every chance I could. At one point, he decided to practice his balancing skills, struggling to hoist himself upright, and standing on his own two feet. After several wobbly attempts which essentially toppled him head over heels, his persistent efforts were successful. Before his legs inevitably gave way, I captured this proud moment as he gleefully clapped his hands and giggled. Now all he needs to do is take a step or two without the hilarious face plant that usually follows.

Here are a few shots of the little one playing around in the grass…

Never Too Early

Photographer In Training

Every time I pick up the camera to fire off a few shots of Kaleb, at some point he always reaches out to touch the lens, so I figured I’d let him get his hands dirty by handing him a camera to play with. It certainly stopped him in his tracks, and gave me a few seconds to shoot him while he sat still.
I even had time to set up my flash on a stand while he fiddled with the various buttons, knobs, and dials. While the concept of looking through the viewfinder or pointing the lens at something is still beyond his grasp, I figure it’s never too early to let him explore. I hope that he and I will be able to make images together, and with a little luck, his talents and skills will far surpass my own. At least he will be comfortable both in front of, and behind the camera.

I’ve been building a collocation of kid portraits lately, so I figured I would show off some of their bright smiling faces.

Eric + Laurisa’s Engagement Shoot

Eric + Laurisa Engagement Session

Eric and Laurisa were on vacation when I met them. They were a long way from their comfortable home in Canada, staying in a hostel in the Gaslamp District when not out exploring San Diego. What’s more, they had just gotten engaged a couple days prior, and were eager to get some engagement shots. After chatting with them for a spell, we decided Ocean Beach would be the perfect place for a shoot.

Their time schedule was rather tight, and wanted to have their images within a couple of days before they flew off to Los Angeles; their next stop . I was only too happy to oblige; while we nibbled on an appetizer platter I sorted through their images, giving them a hand full of images to show off to their friends back home, and brag about their tans in the process.

Congratulations Eric and Laurisa, I wish you the best, and a lifetime of happy adventures together.

A Different View Of The San Diego County Fair

How Kaleb Saw The San Diego County Fair

While walking around the fair last week, I noticed Kaleb was kicking it in style with a foot propped up and the bottle at the ready; taking in the sites and sounds at the fair. He gave me a dirty look when I shoved the camera in the stroller next to his head, as if I was invading his space.
