Random picture pull

I love working with the Gabaldon family. I'm so glad they have the most adorable 3 boys with lots of birthdays to come! It is always a pleasure to take their Pictures. Even Mom + Dad Gabaldon work the camera well. Here is a fave of mine from their holiday shoot last year

Awesome Rascal Flatts Concert With My Mom!

On April 11th my mother and I made traveled north towards San Jose CA for to visit the best Country Music Band at one of the best venues in the state! The HP pavilion in San Jose served us the Boys of Rascal Flatts on a silver platter, front row leaning on the stage grabbing at jeans and boots. But this was a few years back. 2008 however proved to be a bit more sheltered and restricted. We were in row 13 seats 13-14 and sad because the not so nice (language super watered down here) wouldn't let me take my camera in. Well, my real camera that is. They claimed that any camera with a detachable lens is considered professional!!! What are they thinking? Professional photographers don't bring their cameras to concerts.. It's totally just a hobby of mine.. right... anyway after fighting the rules for 30 minutes (and not wanting to miss out on the cutest opening act ever) I gave in a checked my "hobby" camera at the security desk. So, i did have a back up, my Canon SD800 / IXUS 850. I had fun getting all the settings to work with the crazy hot white light they use as spotlights now.. and hey a little bitt o' grain is good for your heath! So, I got the right idea and got a few beautiful images to enjoy and love forever. So thank-you to my wonderful mother for taking me along again. Her 13th time (seat 13) and my 14th (seat 14) ! Oh and the awesome opening act, the adorable Miss Taylor Swift.
I have way too many pictures to post, so many I'll make a slideshow in the future.......But for now I will start by over-posting images of my fave member of the band, Joe Don Rooney

Me and Mom having the best time!

engagement : Nick & Trisha

First off I have to tell you of the love/hate e-mail I have received over the past 2 weeks begging for new blog content! It is great to know I'm being watched and I love all the hate mail.. really I do. So here is as promised the last engagement session I had the pleasure to work on and a promise to all you blog stalkers out there that I will be blogging everyday for a month starting today, April 20th. Please don't hesitate to send any love-mail inspired from future posts:)

Trisha and Nick met me in the beautiful city of Rancho Cucamonga for their engagement session. The skies were evenly covered with clouds and kindly keeping us hydrated with light mists --- even though we didn't ask for the moisture! I have to say what great spirits these two are! They were fine with the moody California weather and had a lot of fun keeping each other warm.
I had such a blast photographing Trisha and Nick. They both have these crazy beautiful intense eyes and the overcast sky was totally helping me out in capturing them! I am really looking forward to the wedding in June! check out the slide-show here

my runner up for best shot is below.. I usually don't settle on the PDA shots, but I love everything about the one below:
below is my fave shot of the day I just love the happiness they hold between them:
