Nicole and David

It was an absolute privilege to shoot the wedding of Nicole and David recently. A large, extended family arrived and were in good spirits and celebrated the joy of these two young people who are obviously in love and ready to embark on their lives together!

I absolutely loved the colors of her dressing room and the light pouring through the windows!

Deliberately blurred ... I kindof like it...

Rhiannon, Cupcakes and Smiles

I got to know Rhiannon a year ago. Somewhat reserved and quiet, her personality is actually much the opposite. Unbeknown to me at the time, the girl has some mad skills as an artist .... her drawings are incredible, full of detail and beauty. She's also an aspiring pastry chef, with goals for the months following high school to enroll in a culinary school and get some practical training in the craft of creating edible artwork!

It made perfect sense to start our shoot at Casey's Cupcake Shoppe at Riverside's Mission Inn. Rhiannon ordered a delicacy while I shot away, then we had some fun with the balloons on the patio and exploring the surrounding pedistrian mall. A very fun and unique shoot, for a fun and unique person!

Taylor and Ariel: Seniors and Sisters

Ariel and Taylor are on their way up and out! Successful seniors and sisters, the two showed off a confidence that I love about seniors ... so ready for the next step, the next chapter in life, prepared and ready to get it going.

Ariel is actually in midstep toward her goals of becoming a nurse, she's working part time in the industry even in this her senior year of high school, so it was a cool and appropriate choice of clothing to shoot some of the images in her scrubs! She's excited to pursue it full time.

Thanks ladies for the great shoot, the laughter and easy-going nature of your personalities. My very best to you as you head out of the door of high school and into the exciting world of your lives!

A sweet image with Dad...
