Wedding photographer takes on kids pictures

I am 95% a wedding photographer.  I also will do anything for my clients. That said, on occasion, my past brides will sweet talk their way getting me to take photographs of their kids.  Don’t get me wrong, I love kids.  I have one of my own that I tend to have deep affection for. 

But… I am a wedding photographer. The only reason I fall into the trap of children’s photos is that my former brides trust me and allow me to do the photos as I see fit. I cannot take pictures like Sears/Penny’s/Wal-Mart (you get the picture). I cannot take them because I am just not good at that. My former brides understand this and just allow me to do what I feel will get the job done. For that I am thankful! 

Christmas photos, in my mind, bring back bad memories for me.  I just remember never smiling and somehow feeling betrayed by my parents, sitting there….in uncomfortable clothing.  

Once again, my clients trust me and just let me be. 


After the fact…

A few weeks after Carly and Riley’s wedding day I took Carly out for a carefree session.  Just a fun hour or two.  I enjoy the pressure of a wedding but I also like the stress free approach as well.  

Joshua Tree

During my recent visit to Southern California I was lucky enough to visit Joshua Tree.  I had been wanting to visit this area for many years.  The stars finally aligned (and my friend Paul was able to take me and also be my personal tour guide.) and I made it.  

I also got to meet and hang out with a totally rocking photographer on the trip as well.  Chris is a very talented Photographer as well as a cool cat. You can check him out here. 

Joshua Tree was everything I was hoping for and much much more.  I hope to get back there in the near future and take a few days to camp and explore this part of the desert even more.
