Miss M. Senior Portraits

Miss M. was photographed in and around the Visalia Downtown area, on what was one of the hottest September days on record, due to the heat the locations had to be quickly accessed and photographs needed to be quickly taken so that none of us would melt. Images from the shoot turned out great and I wanted to post a link here for those who wish to view a current sample of my portrait work.

Several weeks ago now, I had the opportunity to take a quick trip from Visalia out to Hanford and take photographs of my sister and her boyfriend in Hanford’s historic downtown. The shoot was a quick one, both in planning and execution due to the fact that he is a Navy pilot and isn’t always certain about the times that he is going to have off.

Don’t let the extreme heat of the central valley summers keep you from having good photographs. This shoot took only 30 minutes due to the extreme heat of the day, over 100 degrees on any day anywhere is simply hot. Remember fall is right around the corner and the tree’s will make a wonderful backdrop for portraits.

Salem, Oregons’ Capitol, Evening Tour


Restless from the days event’s and not feeling well my wife Katherine and I decided to hit the pavement and have a look around Salem, starting with dinner at best little road house, we walked around Salem until it the last light from the sun had gone from the sky.


First we stopped by the police station and county seat to have a look around the park after finding some amazing planters full of tulips and then progressed on toward the state capitol building wandering through park after park. Taking photographs along the way of course.

Our evening tour ended in the old opera house looking through the windows at the bars of Slab Soap planning the following day to return to get some soap to take home.
