I was honored when Heather and Omar asked me to do their engagement photos.  We went out to La Jolla during one of our “June Gloom” days and while we couldn’t get any cool sunset photos, we still got some awesome shots.  Thanks for a fun evening Heather and Omar!!!

Every once in awhile I will put a photo up on the I Heart Faces website for fun.  The week their challenge focuses on boys, so who better to show off than my little prince!  I actually intended this one to be for my Etsy shop, but he loved this crown and cape so much that it’s now his.  There are times when we go out to the store and both my son and daughter want to wear their crowns and I love all the mixed looks we get.

Last time I did a Death Valley post it focused on the little mini shoot we did.  This time I’m focusing on some of the photos I did that don’t have people in them.  Since I have been there about a million times, I feel like I have photos of almost everything already, so this trip I didn’t take as many as I normally do.


On the way to Death Valley we drive through a little town called Trona and it always smells like rotten eggs.  It is one of those places you don’t really want to stop and get out of the car, but I needed a picture.

We went to Inyo mine and hiked around for awhile.  The kids had a great time but kept slipping on all the gravel so they decided it would be a better idea to play with their toys.  While they were doing that I was able to sneak off and snap a few frames.

One of the days we were there we went over to Rhyolite to explore.  This is one of those places that I have photographed countless times so this year I decided to shoot it with my lensbaby and a borrowed wide angle lens from a photographer friend who was with us.  It was fun redoing a lot of the photos I had taken in the years past and giving them slightly different looks.

On the last evening, My friend and I took the kiddos out to Badwater to explore the saltflats.  The kiddos didn’t really know what to think about it.  I thought it was great.

This year I took my kiddos to the annual Fairy Festival that is held at Summer’s Past Farm.  We had a ton of fun and I was even able to get a few photos of my little fairies.  I was also able to show of my new line of mad hats and crowns.  Jack didn’t want to wear his cape, but he still looked adorable.

Since there was only one nomination for the giveaway, we have a winner!  I personally know this family and they are truly amazing for what they have done for the Lockwood community.  They always go above and beyond to help out help the community grow.  Congratulations Patterson family!

I would like to submit Lester Patterson and his wife Dawn for consideration by Saflower Photography as a candidate for the free photo shoot.  Lester and Dawn give so much of themselves to the community of Lockwood.  They have been working for years and continue to work tirelessly to make the Naciatone Interpretive Center a reality.  They volunteer their Ranch property and time for a Hunter Education program.  They host various other events throughout the year, like the Dutch Oven Cook.  Both Lester and Dawn are always willing to give their time at a moments notice.

I will be announcing another giveaway in a few weeks, so stay tuned!

This morning I was lucky enough to spend the morning playing and photographing a couple of beautiful dogs.  I’m glad we got a break from the rain for this one.

I have decided to do a little bit of price restructuring.  Normally, I have a sitting fee, plus the price of prints or files.  Since everyone wants to order the DVD, I have decided to include one into the new price. I will still be offering prints, canvases, metal prints, acrylic prints, books, etc.  Keep your eyes out because I have 2 fun new products I will be introducing that I’m really excited about!

$250 – Family/Child Session:  A DVD with 15-20 fully edited digital negatives

$350 – Newborn Session:  A DVD with 15-20 fully edited digital negatives

I will be requiring a %25 deposit at the time of the booking and the balance will be due the day before the shoot.
