Happy Birthday America!

There is nothing like watching fireworks on the 4th of July. Celebrating America's birthday is one of my favorite holidays.

I hope you have fun with your family and friends celebrating America's Birthday!

Kids/Family Photography Class

I just got back from my annual class at Golden Gate School of Professional Photography (GGS). GGS holds classes every June for professional photographers and people just starting  a photography business. They have classes to help us in every aspect of our business. It's also a great way to network.

This year I took a class from the award winning kids and family photographer Jennifer Wilson. I learned a lot and made some great new friends. I look forward to putting everything I learned into place.

I thought I would share a few of my favorite images from some recent portrait sessions.

It's not always easy making children laugh and smile when you put a camera in front of them. They need to be in the right mood. They need to feel comfortable with the people around them.

The beads didn't make this beautiful one year old smile or laugh, but it kept her in one place. Which is another issue. Once they can move they move, and fast.

All three of these children were a joy to photograph. I look forward to watching them grow and photographing them in the future.
