i was overwhelmed with excitement when kumiko booked me for her senior portrait. this was no ordinary senior session. it was also going to be her first publicity images. see kumiko is a singer/song writer, and when she sent me some of her stuff, i was just just blown away by how incredibly talented she is.

shooting her session was one of the most enjoyable sessions i’ve ever had. the weather was sunny with a light breezy. you know, one of those perfect weather. on top of that, she played her songs for us while we shot away. i can’t think of anything that can top live music during a photo shoot. i feel spoiled…

to hear some of her beautiful songs, visit her myspace page at:

congratulations on graduating! don’t forget me when you’re world famous!

ok, ok, i’ll apologize for the corny title, but that was my first impression of maribeth + michael. with that in mind, i approached their shoot with the same mind set: a little attitude and a whole lot of hotness! i also finally had some fun with off camera flash, which is something that i’ve been dying to play with. i am definitely pleased with the result…. fine, i guess i’ll give maribeth + michael some credit for being so ridiculously good looking.

the graffiti in the background creates the perfect explosion to michael’s crazy-high jump
