Lara turns 18

Saturday night Lara celebrated her 18th birthday at the Reef in Long Beach. Lara and her court of 9 couples performed her cotillion dance and continued the long Filipino tradition of the debut and I was privileged to follow her court and her family through the preparations and planning of this huge event. I supplied Lara with a personalized guestbook with pictures of her family and herself in it, a large 22×28 frame for her guests to sign, 2 wonderful slideshows, and personal shoots for all of her events, from rehearsals to portraits. It was a pleasure working with her family this last month and meeting all of her friends. Her court was wickedly cool and I had an incredible time getting to know them and dancing with them.

After the debut we all went back to her house and played Chester’s 3 word game, which if you ever find yourself chillin w/ me, should totally find out how to play. Got home at 5am got a great nights rest after a great days work. Happy Birthday Lara! I hope you love the pictures, here’s a few…

Musicians in Action

2010 came and I’ve been ittching to shoot. In 2009 I went ahead and made an email list of all the people I knew who wanted to be informed on a mailing list if I ever needed models. I got several replies for couples who wanted to just come with me to different scouting locations and I got a couple friends who I got behind a guitar to come shoot with me for fun. Khai and Robin came by and did an afternoon shoot with me with some props. Here’s some of the pics we took. Thanks to Gaby who did the make up on both Khai and Robin. It was really fun and a nice way to start my first official shoot of 2010.

Also if your interested in getting on my mailing list, please drop your email in the comments here and i’ll add you into it. I blind carbon copy all of the emails so noone will ever know who’s on it. And don’t worry, I only use it for business, so no spam emails :)
