Vesper: a baby shoot like no other

I swear I've got the coolest and most giving clients. I met Shanti and Aaron at Jeremy and Erin's rock star wedding. When I found out that Erin had given the gift of photography to Vesper (Aaron and Shanti's 3 month old), I was so excited. I knew I wanted to include Mom and Dad in the pictures as I typically would, but this time it was different because I knew that Mom and Dad had some really killer tattoos that I wanted to incorporate. A huge thank you to Shanti and Aaron for trusting me and giving me free reign in the studio. I love how these pictures turned out and I hope they'll provide you with the beginnings of a lifetime of memories of your little Vesper.

Pete & Jessica: Just because

What better reason than that to come in and have some portraits done. Actually, Jessica works for me and is an absolute necessity to the LBV Photo team. Thank you Jessica! I couldn't do it without you. When she mentioned that she and Pete (her fiancee) wanted some updated photos of themselves, I was happy to oblige. We even got to include their little "family". Here's some of my favorites.

Engaged: Steve & Robin

It seems like sooooo long ago that I took these pictures. Well, actually. . . .it was. Steve and Robin, you've been so patient in waiting for these. These were taken right before I got crazy busy with the holidays. Although Robin and I had a bit of a tough time convincing Steve that taking pictures by the old grape trays and trash bin on Steve's ranch was cool, once I showed him the back of the camera he was on my side and we had a blast from there (the little wine they drank didn't hurt either). Hee Hee. We got to have a picnic in the vineyard, play at a softball field, and dine at one of their favorite restaurants, La Rocca's. For now, enjoy some of my favorites from your engagement session and stay tuned for more, along with a guest book design in the near future. I look forward to your wedding in June.
