a bit of nostalgia

I found these photos today and they made me miss how unexpected life was in the Philippines. It was simple, and difficult, and happy, like here at home. Just different.

jenn's family

isn't this the most wonderfully obscure location? i've fallen in love with the strange blue hoses, cement walkways, and fake roof. hearing the words "we dont want traditional pictures" from this sweet family was just what i needed to hear. these photos are what i have been feeling lately, a lot of blur, a lot of white tones, not so structuredness. i cant get enough of the one where this little guy is sharing his sucker with mom.

something about web posting alters the coloring of these photos, but i promise in real life the colors are better, a tad brighter, more real.

more familee

These first two pictures were for me, because I love blurry and I love light.

familee, well one of them

oh how i love the lee's. abe, amberly, katelyn, and baby are just four of this grand family. my second favorite thing to photograph is people as they are. and this is them, just being them.

making magic is my favorite thing to do as a photographer. light equals magic, and i love light. the biggest compliment anyone has given me was that the light in my photo looked like a fairytale. life truly is a fairytale through my eyes. you may blame that on reading too many books, watching lord of the rings so many times, or daydreaming. regardless life is magic through my eyes and i like to capture that.

i let abe give the lensbaby a try, and though all of the photos above were edited by me abe took one of them. can you guess which it is...? his photo turned out to be one of my favorites from the evening, which doesn't surprise me because all of the lee children have talent coming out their ears. plus a few have already proved their skill with a camera.

Devan loves dance parties, as you see in a few of the photos above. She also has a contagious laughter and one of the most beautiful purple flower prints that could be put on a dress. I couldn't help but smirk when she exclaimed during our photo shoot "I just love muscles!" You see, she's planning on going into rehabilitation physical therapy.

lovely lake tahoe

I have found heaven on earth and it is called Lake Tahoe. It is quite easily the most beautiful place I have ever visited. Most of last week was spent in California on a much enjoyed vacation. Here you see my travel buddies and thus by default models.

As you can see I've been exploring the realm of not so focussedness and clearly cannot take credit for these last two, seeing as that is me in them. It was fun, in a strange way, to hand the camera over to someone else for a moment and get a few pictures of my own self. Kerissa, the dark haired cutie above, took these. I think they turned out quite nice considering she had no idea what she was doing.
