Oh how time does seem to zip right past us. It has been about a year and a half since we last saw this beautiful family. Little Colin was only crawling at that time. Fast forward — and boy has he grown! He was just as sweet as the day we first met him, a little shy but he quickly emerged from his shell. And not only has he turned into a handsome young man, but there is a little “Miss C” on the way to join this lovely family.

Although the season of fall was upon us, the temperature was still quite warm and the trees still exuded their lush green boughs. We first gathered underneath the enormous Banyan tree that shaded a small meadow which harbored many a picnic at the park. Colin was a bit timid and was not entirely sure who we were or what Mom and Dad had signed him up for. A few swings in the air and a shoulder ride from Pops lightened the mood and put him in a decidedly cheerful frame of mind. He started talking and walking around, politely asking if he could play on the swing set…such a gentleman.

Big Brother! YES!

The family brought these oh-so-tiny embellishments that they planned to adorn little Chloe with. Her tiny shoes with the protective father and big brother in the background simply melts my heart.


My dearest little sister, whom I adore…
God blessed me with you, forevermore.

Side by side, we will always be…
Through tears and heartache, I will never leave.

Through life’s trials we will work them out together…
What I am trying to say is I will love you forever.

We simply love our dads! Dads are the ones we wrestle with, tumble with, play with, run around and fall with. They inspire us to grow big and strong and in rare quiet moments, they teach us about right and wrong.

Miss Katie, you are glowing; such a gorgeous mommy-to-be. The colors and the wind played their parts beautifully that day.

Thank you so much for allowing us to capture this special time in your lives. We love watching you go from a family of 3 to a family of 4. These sweet memories will stay close to our hearts, but we absolutely cannot wait to meet Miss Chloe. Countdown til summer 2014…!

It seems little girls tend to dominate our blog posts as of late, but today we are thrilled to share the play date we had with two handsome brothers, Jake & Luke.

It seems little girls tend to dominate our blog posts as of late, but today we are thrilled to share the play date we had with two handsome brothers, Jake & Luke. Boys interact with you much differently than girls! The need to constantly be moving and doing seems to be built into their genes. Mom and Dad were quite the amazing duo as they seemed to have a magical ability for entertaining the kids while focusing on the cameras.

We met in downtown Baldwin Park where we walked the neighborhood exploring different spots. Jake was running this way and that, asking questions and naming the color of cars as they went by. Luke happily sat on his mother’s hip watching his older brother scurry about.

What are little boys made of?
Frogs and snails and puppy-dogs’ tails,
That’s what little boys are made of.

These two didn’t even know what the other was doing, they both just thought their mom and dad needed to have a tiny hand exploring their face. So inquisitive these brothers!

Gorgeous Family Photograph!

This was such a fun moment to capture. Jake went into such a giggle fit as his dad held him upside down. His laughter captivated the entire family sending genuine smiles to each of their faces.

Towards the end of our session, tired babes met with frustration, and as we pushed to get a final location we were met with defeat. Although this image makes me laugh every time! Little Brother starts to cry, followed by Big Brother. Little brother looks in puzzlement to his Big brother wondering what he’s crying about. Click goes the camera.

Thank you so much Showalters! We cannot tell you how much we enjoyed spending time with you all and getting to know the boys. We sincerely look forward to working with you again. If you would like to see even more images, Like us on Facebook and breeze through the album.

“etude of the sun”

May 12th, 2010

I’ve recently become enamored by the light [or lack thereof] emitted during sunsets. Its illustrious shadows tiptoeing and sliding away like dancing apparitions upon every item they caress. And while these dark shapes are only half of what makes photographing sunsets intriguing, the whimsy thus materializes in their mirror image. The eruption of hues displayed […]

 


I’ve recently become enamored by the light [or lack thereof] emitted during sunsets. Its illustrious shadows tiptoeing and sliding away like dancing apparitions upon every item they caress. And while these dark shapes are only half of what makes photographing sunsets intriguing, the whimsy thus materializes in their mirror image. The eruption of hues displayed from the spectrum of colors are distinctive, a work of art so delicious you could imagine was finger painted with tubs of sorbet. Images come to life in light of day’s end.

It inevitably vanishes but I continue to wait for the hour when I can gather my gear and pursue this beautiful phenomenon. I’ve become entranced, my heart slows to a steady rhythmic tempo and my finger relaxes over the shutter as I share in the marvel of nature. It is captivating and exhilarating to witness the blazing glow of the sun as it lays itself to sleep below the horizon, while we here on Earth continue to rotate and life awaits a new dawn.

Pondering, stewing in thoughts of visual renderings time and again contemplating how best to capture the object of my attention under such circumstances, I’m affixed. The sinking sun will whisk away the occurrences of the day and in its grasp we release the ecstasy and melancholy to begin anew.

Suddenly darkness creeps in and around me, an all-encompassing veil with its promises of the magic that a new evening brings. Yet, those lovely ideas of rendering creativity through this intense composition allow me to rest soothingly. For the summer sun will continue to blaze and restore the sky with another piece of fine art for me to capture.

Adieu, soleil.

Wobbly Teeth Must Not Ever Never Fall Out.

“I have this little brother, Gavin. He is small and very funny.” – derived from Charlie and Lola.

If you are unfamiliar with the title of this entry you have not become acquainted with one of the sweetest television shows on Playhouse Disney, Charlie and Lola. My most charming little brother has always embodied the mindset of clever, quirky and energetic, little sister Lola. Just as imaginative and humorous, we two constantly laugh at the idea of just how much he and I are like the dynamic pair.

Similar to Lola, Gavin was not thrilled of reaching a milestone in his seven year lifespan, which included the loss of several baby teeth and the gain of a toothless smile. It proved difficult for everyone to discover ways in order to make him smirk as he ultimately knew the ulterior motive would be to showcase his new “big boy” status and front row vacancy.

Fortunately, my brother has grown accustomed to my passion of photography and has developed quite the adoration for it as well. Yearly, since he has made his debut into the world I have taken many shoots of my dimply boy, our tradition being a minimum of a session per birthday. Each of them unique, none of them reflecting any from prior years. This time before reaching eight years, it was my goal to capture his absolutely precious gummy grin, and abide by our “ritual”; thereby allowing Gavin to pick the location and the direction he wanted to shoot in.


You may believe this animated, inquisitive boy would not know how to recognize those elements which make a great photo shoot, but like any other client I chose to cater to his requests. Interestingly enough, Gavin wanted snapshots in the refuge of his bedroom, surrounded by his plush, appearing in his bedtime jammies.

Yet again, my ingenious little brother taught me that simple themes, while comfortable and casual, prove to be refreshing and may possibly exceed your expectations. Thus formulating the power to convey story, perhaps the very narrative of a sensitive boy confidently balancing between infancy and independence.
