Candice and Craig are by far the most meticulous couple I have ever encountered. They are always on time and they do their research on every decision they make.  I mean they had their outfits picked out weeks in advance and they even had the photo shoot locations picked out before I even met them. But what we didn’t account for is the Made In America Concert Tour that was taking place right in the heart of downtown. We ran into road blocks, parking was a mess, and people were everywhere! But this didn’t stop us. Instead of complaining about the situation it challenged us to be more creative. We had to dodged security a few times but it was all worth it! Thank you both for giving me free reign for my off the wall ideas. :-)  Congratulations to you both!

I am usually good under pressure but shooting a mother who is 39 weeks pregnant is another level!

I am usually good under pressure but shooting a mother who is 39 weeks pregnant is another level! Although I am in full wedding season swing, Tracy and Corion were determined to make time around my schedule to make this photo session happen. We spent the afternoon on the campus of Chapman University. There are two things that are consistent witg a college campus in the summertime…Plenty of parking…and skateboarders. Don’t ask me how but two skateboarders ended up in a couple of our photos (Shoulder Shrug).

I have been blessed to shoot some of the most charismatic kids in America and MeKenna is no exception to that rule. She is arguably one of the most friendliest kids I have ever met. She literally talked to every stranger who walked by…including squirrels and pigeons. It is always a pleasure to work with the Lucas family and I can’t wait to meet little Ms. Milan Grey Lucas! Congratulations :-D

I’ve always believed that memories are way more valuable then possessions…

I’ve always believed that memories are way more valuable then possessions. I figured, what better gift to give someone then your time and a shared laugh right?! :-D Well this is especially true for the Morris family. A couple of weeks ago we spent our afternoon exploring Old Towne Pasadena. Darieshia and her sister Darxia decide to surprise their mother with a light-hearted photo shoot for her birthday. We laughed from beginning to end…so much so that my lips became chapped! :-D This birthday was especially meaningful to the Morris family… Not only were they celebrating another year of life but they are also celebrating mom being cancer free!!! :-) Such a bless! If the surprise photo shoot wasn’t enough Darieshia also set up a surprise party at The Melting Pot to celebrate both momentous occasions. I thought it was a awesome gesture. Being around the Morris family I felt a sense of strength and love that is rarely seen. I was fortune to experience this rarity and I thank you all for letting me be apart of this historic day! Rseephoto family pasadena love breast cancer awareness photography creative unique long beach black-8527 Rseephoto family pasadena love breast cancer awareness photography creative unique long beach black-8658 Rseephoto family pasadena love breast cancer awareness photography creative unique long beach black--2 Rseephoto family pasadena love breast cancer awareness photography creative unique long beach black-8685 Rseephoto family pasadena love breast cancer awareness photography creative unique long beach black-8556 Rseephoto family pasadena love breast cancer awareness photography creative unique long beach black-8644 Rseephoto family pasadena love breast cancer awareness photography creative unique long beach black--3 Rseephoto family pasadena love breast cancer awareness photography creative unique long beach black-8629 Rseephoto family pasadena love breast cancer awareness photography creative unique long beach black-8717 Rseephoto family pasadena love breast cancer awareness photography creative unique long beach black-8592 Rseephoto family pasadena love breast cancer awareness photography creative unique long beach black--4 Rseephoto family pasadena love breast cancer awareness photography creative unique long beach black-8562 Rseephoto family pasadena love breast cancer awareness photography creative unique long beach black-8731 Rseephoto family pasadena love breast cancer awareness photography creative unique long beach black-8613 Rseephoto family pasadena love breast cancer awareness photography creative unique long beach black-8610 Rseephoto family pasadena love breast cancer awareness photography creative unique long beach black--5 Rseephoto family pasadena love breast cancer awareness photography creative unique long beach black-8763 Rseephoto family pasadena love breast cancer awareness photography creative unique long beach black--6 Rseephoto family pasadena love breast cancer awareness photography creative unique long beach black-8774 Dual mom Daxdual DarDual Rseephoto family pasadena love breast cancer awareness photography creative unique long beach black-8759 Rseephoto family pasadena love breast cancer awareness photography creative unique long beach black-8831 Rseephoto family pasadena love breast cancer awareness photography creative unique long beach black-8837 Rseephoto family pasadena love breast cancer awareness photography creative unique long beach black-8861
