Portrait Session with Summer

It feels good to be blogging again!!!  I've been neglecting it for a while but feel like I'm getting back in the swing of things.

Today I want to share some shots from a portrait session I did yesterday with Summer.  We had so much fun down at the beach with some gorgeous weather!!!  There's an awesome little cove spot down at La Jolla that I love to go to where it's secluded and we can relax and not worry about the crowds.  And now that it's daylight savings time it's perfect for sunset beach shoots!

Ohhh, and on an AWESOME note.... an earlier shot I did with her and her friend landed him an audition for Pirates of the Caribbean 3!!! How cool is that!?!?!?!!!

Anyway here are some shots :)

  12. THANKS FOR THE LOVE YALL! I am telling you.. I LOVED working with Reuben. I normally am pretty creeped out with some photgraphers, but he made me feel so awesome, and has actually become a good friend of mine. I would walk to the ends of the Earth to have EVERY model feel this way about a photographer. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND HIM FOR ANY AND EVERY OCCASSION!

  14. WOW, thanks so much for the kind words everyone! I feel so flattered. It's so much easier to get great shots when your subject is so beautiful and easy to work with! :)

    Leighann - I believe Summer has told you the special portrait rate I'm offering. Please let her or myself know when you'd like to schedule a shoot!
