10 on 10: February

It’s the month of love, and although I had hoped to create a love-themed post, I am instead posting 10 photos I have taken in the past month.

Starting with my great love, Bella.  She turned 15 months on Feb 8th, which was a good reason to take her photo.   Her look changes so much depending on the position of her ears.  In these with her ears back, she looks like a fawn to me.  :)

Bella, 15 months


And the ears up pose…



At least twice a year, Ana hires me to take her photos.   I am still editing most of them, but this was a quick candid snapped as we were wrapping up.


I have been aching to be in the snow, but with so much work at home, I haven’t been able to get away.  I discovered Jessica Drossin textures,  and created this magical snow image with one of the photos I had taken of Ana.


Here is the original…

Another fun shoot I did in the past couple of weeks, was for Russell.  He wanted some shots for his fitness website and some portraits too.   These are the few I have edited so far.


My assistant actually came up with this idea once I suggested to Russell that we should emphasize some of his strength and muscles for his fitness website.  He searched long and hard for a tree log and was patient enough to hold it up until I felt I had the shot.





I hope you all have a love-filled Valentine’s Day!   Please follow around our 10 on 10 circle, starting with the lovely Laura Bastien right here.

See you next month!

    Bella is so cute! What a love. And the photos of Ana are terrific. Love you the snow effect created through the textures. Snow in San Diego! And your assistances muscles…wow. Great photos!

    Aww, Bella is so adorable. And of course your portraits are stunning and so well captured. I am sure your client is very happy with the photos for his fitness website.
