My dear friend Elizabeth put on the cutest party for her adorable son Quinn who was turning three. Sometimes my very favorite pictures from kids birthdays (or any photo sessions) are not always the smiley ones – I like the mix of introspective, intense feelings that young kids don’t yet edit away – the intense anticipation of the cake, the cake, the excitement of seeing friends, all of the little guys busy, busy, busy. The freedom of play. Childhood.
Went for a visit down to San Diego the other weekend to hang out with my sister. San Diego is really just a relatively quick drive down the 5. Only took the camera out once for a quick portrait session with my nephew and my son. I “should” have brought my camera to Point Loma – breathtaking landscape – amazing views and amazingly uncrowded. Kind of the antithesis of everywhere around Los Angeles. Next time. Next time.
Took pics of Archer’s cousins and family for thanksgiving. Archer was being SUCH a wild child – was running around like a maniac when I was trying to get him in the family portraits….sometimes being chased by mamarazzi is just too much for the little guy. But his cousins were great little models. I decided to try some new post processing techniques and am really pleased with the results.
