Worth its Weight in Gold

A photographer tries extremely hard to capture beautiful and fleeting moments in time so that their clients may enjoy for years and generations to come. As a result of this, on top of our earnings we are lucky to be recognized with small thank you notes, cards, emails and gifts.

I've been extremely blessed in my profession to be the recepient of gifts and praise from clients.

The other day, I was the recepient of the most unique thank you that I have ever received. One so unique that it felt like God's finger was touching my heart directly. It was extremely touching and made me somewhat emotional. I took a moment to realize what my work on Earth was all about. I know, I know, sappy. This will be the last sappy post for the year. Maybe.

The note was from Marisa, my 8 year old First Holy Communion portrait client from this past Spring. For an 8 year old to take time from her busy day and hand write a note to me was so, so touching! On top of that, she created a pieced of art expressing her view of the day!

Thanks so much for making my day Marisa!...

Graduation Portrait

My congratulations to Johnathan for completing a humongous feat in graduating from Cal State Fullerton.

Johnathan has always been the perfect photographer's subject as he is always willing to try anything! He greatly contributed concepts and ideas for a graduation portrait. Johnathan helped make this a really unique graduation portrait session!

Like two members of the Montagues and Capulets, this couple was destined to fall in love. Dan a graduate from USC and Nancy from UCLA. Both wished to convey their pride and allegiance in their Engagement session.

We managed to get through the session in peace and developed some magic together!
