Eleventh Anniversary in Yosemite










We have had the pleasure of not only documenting Daisy and Matt’s wedding eleven years ago, but of also, photographing each of their anniversaries. To say that Larry and I look forward to this event is a major understatement. Each year, Daisy and Matt plan a wonderfully fun and photogenic experience for us to shoot. Past high-lights have included horse back riding on a Santa Barbara beach at sunset and a fabulous trip to Hawaii!

This year was particularly fun because we got to spend the entire weekend with this adorable couple and their beautiful son Jazz, in one of our all time favorite places, Yosemite National Park.

As you can see from these photos, there were lots of sweet, romantic moments punctuated by Jazz’s playful antics.

Daisy and Matt are so much fun to photograph because they are literally up for anything. Climb up on a giant fallen tree? Can do! Get over your fear of snakes and spiders and sit in this tall grass? You got it! They did this and more while looking fabulous and keeping a close eye on a very active toddler.

Daisy and Matt, I asked you two what your secret is for a successful happy marriage and in typical fashion your answers were totally in synch. I wish I could remember your exact, eloquent words but the gist was that; when you disagree on something, do so with the intent of finding a common solution. If you fight to win, you might as well be alone.

We love you and cherish your friendship and wisdom so much! Happy anniversary.

Three generations, Disney Concert Hall


Larry and I recently photographed a really special family session. It was special because not only were 3 generations present, but also because a few years ago, we photographed YaPing and Simon’s pre-wedding photos at this location. Since that day, there have been many wonderful changes in their lives; namely the birth of their two children, Miles and Riley.



Miles is such a charming little boy. The last time we saw him, was at his first birthday celebration. Even then, he was the life of the party!


Riley is so adorable! She is the sweetest baby.


The whole clan was looking picture perfect.


Riley clearly adores her daddy. She looks just like him too!


I just had to take a few moments to photograph YaPing and her beautiful mother together. I love this photo.


Something tells me, these two get into all kinds of mischief together.


It was Miles’ idea to throw his hat for this photo. It’s my favorite image of the day. Good job Miles!


It’s good to have a fun uncle around. A little horseplay helps keep things loose.


I hope when Riley grows up, she will cherish this photograph.


There was no shortage of laughs and cuddles on this day.


Every photo session should have bubbles…


Especially when they illicit expressions like this!


Is this not the cutest grin ever?


Miles knew all the tricks to get his baby sister to smile. We look forward to many more family sessions and watching them grow.
