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!

and here’s ashley!

although it drizzled a couple of times during our shoot, i must say, it was the perfect weather. cloudy sky for soft light, check. natural breeze for sexy hair, check. cute models, check and check.

i guess i can say i sort of shot a celebrity…

lauren’s dad: “i had no idea our back yard was so photogenic! 🙂 nice job.”

unlike most people, lauren wanted to shoot her senior portrait in the comfort of her own home. i loved the idea. it’s always fun to have a change of scenery.




sorry for the short post. i’m still in a food coma from my birthday yesterday. yes, it was my birthday. shooting all these high school seniors is really making me feel the old…

i was super excited when lily contacted me for her senior portrait. it’s not everyday you get to take your senior portrait at the qwest field! not only did i get the chance to shoot some beautiful photos, i also got the grand tour of the whole stadium. i’m not usually a football fan, but i might just have to check out the next game…





the lighting on the field was so perfect!



pretty, pretty flare
