Family Portrait session with Kirsten and Kids

I recently had the opportunity to do a family portrait session with my friend Kirsten and her kids.  Her children came in 2 bunches with the older 2 being 20 and 15, and the younger 2 being 6 and 4.  Kirsten says that she hadn't had pictures taken of her children since her 15 year old was about 4, so it was cool that she asked me to photograph her family and update the family photos.  We lucked out on the weather and had one of the last fairly warm afternoons of the season to work with, and it wasn't even raining.  Kirsten has given me permission to share some of my favorites here, so I hope you also enjoy the images.  I'm going to take this opportunity to also plug my photographic services and say that I am currently running an environmental portrait session package for only $100.  If you're like Kirsten and need some updated images of yourself and/or your rugrats, drop me a message at

A Boy And His Colors, or How to Ruin A Pair Of Dolce & Gabbana Jeans in the Name of Creating Art

I had the opportunity to do another session with my friend Manuel this week and he has graciously given me permission to share the final images here on my blog.  This is the first time I have done a shoot with paint like this, and I have to say that I might have to do a nudes series in the same conceptual style. 

Manuel brought the basic concept for the shoot to me to execute as well as the paints and drop cloths.  I brought my camera and a willingness to risk painted footprints running between my attic and the bathroom.  Our friend Niki helped out with the shoot and seemed to really enjoy dripping the cold paint all over Manuel.  Of course, Manuel said that he might just have a new fetish after having the paint dripped all over him. 

At any rate, we did have a great time doing the shoot and managed to keep my house relatively paint-free while doing it. 

As always, I hope you enjoy the images!
