I’m laughing at myself as I compile these photos. Laughing because it took 18 months for me to share photos from Meegan’s time in CA, and laughing because it took 8 months for me to share these photos of my time with Meegan in CO. Progress, I guess?Read More
Last year I shared some film scans from a disposable camera that I'd used to capture random scenes over the course of a year (plus a couple months).
I had so much fun with that first camera and decided to do the same thing last year! The scans just came in this week and, once again, it was a real treat to see photos I'd forgotten about.Read More

Sometimes it's a good idea to take a different exit and see different sites.Read More
We had New Years' Eve brunch down by the water with my friend Micah after church.Read More
A couple of Sundays ago the Yerzy's met up with me in the city for church and in the afternoon we squeezed in a post-picnic photo session. The park provided a perfect setting to capture Oliver's expressions of pure joy. He was having the time of his life on the big metal slide.Read More
Any excuse to hang out with Jared and Keri and Anora is welcome. But when I also get to bring out my camera and capture some of the cuteness? It's almost too much.
We squeezed in this photo shoot just in time for Christmas card season :) First we met up at the cafe, then went for a little walk downtown, and ended at the Johnson ranch for some orchard photos. Here are some favorite scenes!Read More
Here's an idea for 2017: go to Target. Buy a disposable camera (for $11.99). Take pictures on it all year. When December rolls around, get it developed!
I bought a camera in October 2015 and took photos with it through December 2016. The best part about stretching it out for so long is the added fun of not remembering which pictures you took, in addition to the suspense of not knowing how the pictures will turn out. That anticipation is lost with digital.
Of course, this is not about making high-quality photos. They're grainy. The lighting is funky. But heck, it's a whole lot of fun to do something so opposite iPhones and Instagram (which I still love, btw).
Here are some of my favorites from the last camera.Read More
To state the obvious, Becki and Steven are so cool. A few weekends ago, we met up in downtown Turlock to take some photos... their first photo session since they got married 4 years ago. They're naturals, right?Read More
When I first started at my job, I met my next-office-door neighbor, John. I spent a month or so trying to figure him out... I kind of thought he hated me or something. Fast forward to present day I'm so glad he's my office neighbor. He's hilarious, knows a wealth of random trivia, and is a major movie buff.
The most common occurrence is for John to walk into my office and ask, "Have you ever seen [insert movie title]?" If I have, we converse about it. If I haven't (much more likely), he either turns and walks away in silence or tells me I "am wrong" (direct quote).
He also happens to enjoy cooking as much as I do, so we have great conversations about that topic and often send recipe links back and forth on IM.
A couple of months ago on their annual vacation to Florida, John proposed to his lovely girlfriend, Annette, and I had the honor of being asked to take their engagement photos. We drove up to a winery in Lodi for a lovely afternoon of wine slushies and pictures.Read More
Sunday was chill.
Pastries and coffee at Thorough Bread.
Lunch at Beachside.
A relaxing chat with friends in their living room.
A walk to Andytown (for an afternoon pick-me-up, you know?).
A trip up to the top of the observation tower at de Young.
And a very lively drive home thanks to the "Songs to Sing in the Car" playlist on Spotify.
Such fun.Read More
We're housesitting this week, and it feels like vacation.
The evening light through these windows has provided a bright ending to some rather dull days, and tonight I was happy to pick up my camera and capture it in a celebration of sunshine and Friday night.
Next week will be better. And even if it isn't, we'll still have the sun.Read More
Beau proposed in Yosemite the very day these photos were taken, and everything was perfect. Also, fun fact: this day, February 13, was their one year anniversary of dating!
It's been my pleasure to know both of these folks for a very very very long time, and it's been my pleasure to have had the opportunity to spend an exceptional amount of time with them over the last 8 months or so (they make the best SF buddies)… (see here, here, and here).
On top of getting to take their engagement photos, do I even have to say how incredibly excited I am to have the privilege of being in their wedding in August?!Read More
What fun it was to hang out with these lovely folks a few Saturday mornings ago in downtown Modesto! Judah is quite possibly the cutest little human on the planet, and Jeff and Cheyenne could be models if they wanted to be. Besides that, they're just the sweetest and it was a pleasure to photograph them :)Read More
In June I bought a Dave Brubeck album in Santa Cruz. I didn't have a record player, but I bought it anyway. $5 for 2 records? How could I not?
Over Christmas weekend, I finally took the time to dust off a big Sony console that has been sitting in a corner since I moved in here. It had ten years of dust inside (no exaggeration), but after a good cleaning it worked splendidly. I enjoyed the jazz while editing photos, and I kind of love how these particular photos turned out.Read More
