We shot our first cook book! For my first gig in the professional food photography world I took on a massive project – 100 recipes in 3 days. Thankfully, I had Alexis on board to style each plate. She was in the kitchen next to Chef Vera figuring out what was coming off the skillet …

Monster Face

For a number of years I owned a yoga and martial arts studio and I saw a lot of bodies. I’m the OCD neurotic type, I can’t even look at a baby if they have a runny nose I don’t care how cute. Which is why I spent a good portion of my yoga classes …

Newborn Baby Photography Alexis and I were talking kids and we were on the 3-5 year plan. I said 3 and she said 5. Then we had a minor scare and now we are on the 5-7 year plan. She says 5 and I say 7. There’s a lot of stuff they don’t prepare you …

Faces of Portland

I’ve been here 7 times and I never know how to photograph the place. It’s hard to get the essence of the city that you can only understand by visiting. But I did tell Alexis on this trip that I love how every building is a little different and very stylized. There must be a …

BIG SUR I’ve made a point to come here every year since I’ve been living in California. Having Alexis with me was special because she had never been here before. When you drive this coast for the first time you’re like a kid again, so, by proxy, I was transformed into an 8 year old. …

Michaela + Andre Get Married: San Diego Wedding Photography

Well, I’ve always said that I only photograph weddings for couples that actually love each other because the grind of wedding photography will wear you out if you’re not moved by the love of the couple.
