Orange County | Magazine Style | Family Portrait News
April and May are nothing short of crazy, stupid, busy for the studio. We are creating magazine style kids, newborn, maternity and family portraits for allot of Orange County families between now and the end 2012.
A Tidal Wave of Love
April closed with a hot, tidal wave of l0ve when we photographed Adrian and Dionne’s crazy in love wedding among the citrus groves in Riverside. It was only 99 degrees for their outdoor wedding and they turned up the heat another 10 degrees with their passion. What’s with the weather anyway. Dang, 99 degrees that day. Wasn’t uncomfortable though. It was a dry 99, but still it isn’t even June yet! I’ll definitely be posting some images from their amazing River side wedding day. These two are so crazy in love. It was a true honor to be in their presence. Never have I witnessed family participation on this level to make their wedding day come together. 5 days after their wedding they headed off to Japan, where Adrian is stationed as a Navy photojournalist. His a Nikon shooter but I still like him anyway.
Jacob’s Rock’n Bar Mitzvah
This past Saturday, Connie and I got up at the crack of dawn. Okay maybe a bit before that. I hit the shower at 5:30 am to start preparing for Jacob’s Bar Mitzvah. Actually I prepared the night before, double checking all the gear, getting the lighting gear all set and visualizing a successful day. Incredible young man, who can whale on the electric guitar. Wonderful, close, loving and supportive family. Super fun reception. Showed up at the temple at 8am for family portraits. Service started at 9:30 and then more family photographs at 4:30. Everyone partied like a rock star from 6pm until……close to midnight. Can’t wait to post some vignettes of Jacob’s big day. I’m working on the images right now. And will post in the coming weeks.
Moving Our Studio
To top it off, we’ll be moving our studio from old town Tustin to a brand spanking new space in Sky Park Circle in Irvine. The new space will be a bit larger. About 1200 sq/ft. up from 1k. Adding a dressing room and 2 more shooting areas instead of the one shooting area that we have in studio now. We’ll be able to accomodate larger family groupings and have a few tricks up our sleeves for the new space. I’m very excited about our new location. Its a bit nearer the costal communities of Newport Beach, and Laguna Beach and much cooler temperature wise than Tustin. It’ll be located on the corner of Main and Red Hill, adjacent to John Wayne Airport. We start design and construction work this week!
Due to the insane portrait schedule of the next month, coupled with getting the new studio space ready, there may not be that much time for blogging. But when I have some spare time, I’ll try to share a few images with you.
