In early October I went to the Albers dairy to photograph their family portrait session. They have around 5,000 cows on the farm. It was very interesting to see how it all worked. The boys, Dylan and Tyler sure have a lot of fun playing around. View the slideshow **here**.

I did a portrait session for Spencer Kurowski to commemorate his second birthday at the Davis Arboretum. Spencer is sure becoming quite a little character. At our last session he was very interested in dandelions and this time it was sticks. We brought along a couple different things to keep him occupied, like a baseball, which he loved. He also had a great time chasing all the ducks. You can watch Spencer's slideshow **here**.

Ana, Ramiro, and I went to Old Sacramento yesterday for their engagement session. Although I got stuck in traffic and hit by another car on the freeway on the way there (minor scrapes to my truck - that's why I drive a BIG Dodge), the session went terrific. It was hard to pick just one image to show on here. To see all the cool stuff we captured, check out the slideshow **here**.

One of my prior brides, Carrie, brought her niece, Laura, in for a session as a surprise for her sister, Laura's mom. We went to the park at the Ulatis Community Center in Vacaville. Laura was so much fun and she brought her friend "Johnny" (imaginary) with her. She had to keep grabbing him to have his photo taken with her. Laura wasn't too sure about me in the beginning but once we started talking about ice cream she warmed up. View Laura's slideshow **here**.

I photographed the wedding of Tom and Jennifer in Saratoga, NY on September 30. We did their engagement session the day before the ceremony. I don't have the wedding edited yet, but view the engagement slideshow **here**. I absolutely loved the locations we used. The first part of the session was at the Saratoga Spa state park, where we were staying. We then went to a park in the center of Saratoga. The park was great with lots of greenery, water, and architecture.
I photographed a commercial session for Web By Design of California for the website of a restaurant in Vacaville called Reggie's Island Grill. In addition to photographing the location, they had prepared about a dozen of their menu specialities to be photographed as well. The best part of the shoot was tasting all the great food when we were done with it. I can highly recommend the fried bananas, YUMMMY!! You should definitely have dinner there. The restaurant is located at I80 and Leisure Town Road.
This is a group portrait for a law firm in Vacaville, Hodson & Mullin. We scouted locations ahead of time and actually decided on the front of the new police station in Vacaville. The whole group was a riot to work with, they were all so funny. I couldn't believe how they could ever get any work done in their office.
This was my third session with Glenda, who likes to have her portrait updated every other year. I bet you will never guess how old she is as she is incredibly youthful both in appearance and personality. Here are a few of my favorite images from Glenda's session which we did at the Davis Arboretum.
I wanted to say "Thanks" to everyone who reads this blog regularly and also apologize for getting a little behind in my posting. Many of you may know that one of the reasons I am a little behind right now is because I recently purchased a new MacBook Pro (my very first Mac) and have been working hard to switch over to the new system. The system itself has been a breeze to work with and I'm really excited to start working on some of the new products I'll be offering that I'll be able to creat on the Mac. The second reason I'm a little behind is because I flew to Saratoga, NY to photograph a wedding on September 30 - posts from there will be coming soon....so please check back! Thanks again everyone and I appreciate your patience while I play catchup.
