I've been eagerly awaiting the time when I could show you guys these pictures. The first thing I'll say about this photo shoot is, I loved it. All the guys in the band were fantastic and I am truly grateful to them for giving me this opportunity . I want to thank Matt, who started the band, for trusting me and being cool with all the rain outs we had. One of the guys is a pro photographer who does a lot of music related work, and he gave me great bits of advice throughout the shoot. Big ups to you Daley. Austen, I appreciate your chill demeanor and willingness to go along with any wacky ideas I had.

I would highly recommend these guys. You can check out their music on iTunes, head over to their website or hit up their Facebook fanpage.

Ma' Boys

I posted a picture of my baby girl last week and she rocked it. So in the interest of staying fair and balanced, I figured I should put up pictures of my boys. Bam.

The crazy one.

Valley Performing Arts Center

I've been watching the construction of the Valley Performing Arts Center for the past few years. It was just completed a month ago and I've been itchin' to take some pictures. In between rain showers I made my way over there yesterday and, lucky me, I had the place to myself! Californians are allergic to rain. Or the thought of rain. They even look warily at misters during the summer. It was nice to be out shooting and I'm looking forward to going back now that I know what didn't work. ;)

Beauty held

I've been experimenting with some studio lights lately and I thought I'd put the most beautiful little girl I know in front of 'em.

Blue Hair for Health


So I've been thinking (go ahead have your laugh), I need to do something about the inequalities in the world. I know this sounds like big thinking, but hear me out. I want to help out in some way that could have the greatest impact. What's the most basic thing we all need? Water. Clean water. An organization called charity:water is doing exactly that. I first became aware of them when TV star Alyssa Milano started a campaign to build several wells in Ethiopia. It costs $5,000 to build a well, and she raised over $90,000. Amazing.

Many of your were so generous with my Haitian Relief fund raiser and we sent $350 to support the Red Cross' efforts down there. Thank you all again. My goal is a bit higher this time, but things are already off to a good start. $20 will provide clean water for 1 person for 20 years. My goal is to raise $2,011 which will provide 100 people with clean water for 20 years. The money goes directly to them, and 100% of it goes towards building wells to provide clean water. While I could not specify which country I wanted the money to go to, most of their efforts are still focused on Ethiopia. And having adopted our daughter from Ethiopia, that country is very near to our hearts.

Oh, I almost forgot the most fun part! The pictures at the top of the post might seem a bit odd, but I will explain. As an incentive to reach the goal, I have decided to lay my hair on the line. At least the color of it. If we reach the goal of $2,011, I will color my hair blue. Not a light blue or just a little bit of hair. All of it. Electric blue. Boo boo boogaloo.

I have created a page where you can learn more about what charity:water does and make a donation. Click here to check it out. Now let's help some people out who are in need AND get my hair all blued up!

The Rain Fell Gently

Sorry for the infrequent posting. Ironically, it's photography that's been taking up my time!

Good morning, I hope everyone had a great weekend. I'd tell you how the weather was here but you'd probably hate me, so let's just pretend that it was more awesome where you were. ;) Here's a blast of red to get your week started.
