The Farmer Family has officially been blogged!

Hey Treysen, you're on the internet. Hee hee.
Whoa! This was a fun one. I'm normally chasing kids through the studio but Steve and Natalie wanted something different for their family photos. So, we all got to run around in the field and also live a little dangerously by playing on the train tracks. That's a reeeaaal train in the background too. No photoshop. :P The next shot is of them running. Really. LOL! Enjoy some of my favs below. Oh, and they're blogging too. Check it out!

Engaged: Tim & Liz

This session started off with a BUZZZZZ. . .literally. Tim and Liz walked through the door with a number of different outfit changes in one hand and a bottle of bubbly in the other. Apparently they were nervous about the engagement session. LOL! Well, it not only led to great pictures but uncontrollable outbreaks of laughter and total giddiness. We were all a little goofy really, except when I had Tim sit in a pile of red ants. Woops, sorry about that Tim. :P Some of the places we got to play were around old wooden bins, a "paint can lid" fence (my latest find), an old shed, near train tracks where we almost got ran over, and one of their favorite restaurants where they danced in the parking lot. Good times guys, good times! I'm looking forward to your wedding in just a handful of weeks. Oh, and for all of you brides out their that need a killer wedding cake, be sure to hit up Liz. She owns creme de la cake and does some swweeeeet work. Now go check out some of my favorite clicks below.

08 Senior: Samantha

Jen and I go way back with Samantha and her family so I was excited to find out that I'd be shooting her and her twin brother's Senior pictures. Samantha's a pretty easy goin' girl so we kept the shoot reeeeeaaaaal simple and got some beee-youtiful images. Have a peek at some of my faves.

Donovan turns 4!

We got to spend the rainy afternoon at Pump It Up, the inflatable party zone, for Donovan's (my sister in laws grandson) 4th birthday party. Lots of color, bounce houses, inflatable slides, air hockey, and great cupcakes. My kids are still on a sugar high. Here's a few pics from the party.

Engaged: Jeremy & Christy

I get all giddy with fun and sweet couples that are crazy in love! Jeremy and Christy were a perfect example. We started the engagement session at Christy's Mom's property in Reedley, made a quick stop at their Church, and then made our way back into town. We finished off the night at the Elbow Room for a few last shots and dinner where I swear they have the best prime rib. Not to mention Jeremy splurged and we all shared a bottle of Nickel & Nickel Cabernet. You guys are over the top! I look forward to your wedding in May.

'08 Senior: Andrea

I was so excited to try out some new locations with Andrea that I could just pee my pants. And I almost did too. I get so into my work sometimes that I don't hear Mother Natures call even though she's yelling at me. In any case, we got to play around some graffiti walls and a dilapidated home in only the best parts of town. :P I also got to experience the likeness of Colbie Caillat and Missy Higgins when Andrea belted out some of her vocals. Whewwwwww! This girl can sing. Enjoy some of my favorites and remember to help me think of a name for the last pic.

'08 Senior: Paige

I'm on a blog roll here and I'm looking forward to posting lots of Seniors. With Paige's session we kept it really simple and didn't leave my property. I love the challenge of manipulating the light and creating new looks without loading into the car and driving to a location. I'm stoked about the images we got. Take a look at what I know will be some of Paige's favorites.

'08 Senior: Ashley

Senior season is officially here and it is going strong. Ashley was my first 2008 female of the year for me to photograph and we didn't hold back. I mean how can you go wrong when you start off the shoot with Dad's bright yellow Viper? I also got to try out a concept (see the last pic) for a new product I'm offering this year. Now if I can only come up with a name for it. Lemme know if you've got one. Thanks Ashley for a fun session. If you're any indication of the year to come it's going to be fantastic.
