Four week old baby Scarlett and her parents Jordan and Brad were one of the most delightful families I've met and photographed. As you can see, everyone in this family is beautiful, including the Bengal cats. I love this first photo of Scarlett sleeping on Dad's shoulder. Welcome to the world, Scarlett!
Scarlett has this cool birthmark on her hand. They named her Scarlett before she was born, so they didn't know she would have it. Just a really interesting coincidence.
John and Jackie came over to pick up their 30"x 45" framed photo, and brought me cupcakes! There were four chocolate cupcakes that John made himself. They were so yummy I ate them all before I had a chance to photograph them. Here's what's left.
And here is the photo they got as a 30" x 45" for their Emeryville loft. Sweet!
I recently had the honor of photographing the families of two local photographer friends. The first is the one and only Doug Adesko who shoots commercial work for Microsoft, Yahoo, Bank of America, and many more (yes, he's busy). Here is Doug's daughter Isabel with mom and dad and dog Daisy. There's also one more photo of Isabel with Daisy on my dog photo blog, Slobberspace.
The next is Audrey Vernick's familiy. I've known Audrey ever since we were both shooting for the East Bay Express newspaper back in the mid 90s. Since then, she's published a very successful book called Unveiled: Images and Intimations of Marriage. It makes a great wedding gift, and it's full of her wedding photos along with interviews with couples about their weddings and their marriages. Click this link to check it out :
And here is Audrey's beautiful family. Her boys Sammy and Bennet were so nice and I really liked the way the whole family interacted with each other. They are all very snuggly.
My niece Vivian sent me this trippy, fascinating link. Take a look at this thing and tell me which way you see the dancer spinning, clockwise or counterclockwise? When I stare at it long enough I can make it switch.
