Asher is such a cute, handsome little boy!  I was honored to photograph his family portraits just a few weeks back.  Ever since I knew my wife was expecting our first child, photographing these little kids has made me even more excited.  Can’t wait for my own now!

It’s been almost 2 years since I first photographed my first ABC book for Landon. I’ve done a few more since then, and now, Landon’s little brother Cade makes his debut. He’s a very independent little guy and doesn’t sit still for long. But, for the most part, I think he likes being in front of the camera. Each day that I would return to create more photographs, he seemed excited about it. Which photo is your favorite?

It’s hard to convey how excited I was when I originally got the email from this family.  The dad works with a very good client of mine (for whom I also created an ABC book) and asked if I could create an ABC book for his daughter…in Brazil.  Since I lived in Brazil for 2 years (2003-2005) and have been dying for a reason to go back, it was a match made in heaven for me.  They live in Rio de Janeiro and we had an amazing 4 days together visiting lots of sites, and creating some memorable and personal images for their family.  Thank you again, this was the most fun I’ve had in a very long time and can’t wait to go back!

laura + david // family & maternity

I was pretty excited when I first met with Laura + David, and for a couple of reasons.  To be honest, I have never really been asked about maternity photos in the past because I don’t show any on my website or blog.  There is a certain style that generally has stayed with some of the past and current trends of maternity and infant portraits: bare bellies, half-naked mothers, elaborate and gimmicky props and a whole bunch of things that I have never cared for as a photographer.  I have always, from day one, always focused on realism: real people being themselves.  I do NOT want to prematurely ‘date’ my photographs by including hokey props and other things I find silly . . . mainly because I could never see myself doing those things if I were the subject!  Over the past years I have seen millions of photographs from all different genres and talents, and I can always tell when photographs are “fake’, in the sense that the subjects doing whatever they are doing in the photographs isn’t something that they ever do, and most certainly not on a regular basis.  This is all fine, but the fantasy style elaborate sets and themes has just never jelled with my style.  What excited me most about working with Laura + David was that they saw my vision and LOVED the ‘documentary’ type approach to portraits: real people doing real everyday things.

They described to me what their normal, everyday life is like on a typical average week.  They love each other, they love their totally awesome home, they love to cook, and they love their two dogs.  Although they still wanted some more directed portraits for the home, and to commemorate the maternity experience, they still loved the idea of capturing what life was like before the new baby, because maybe it would never be the same again :)  Laura + David are proud parents of a new baby girl, and having seen some of their own photographs from home, she looks absolutely ADORABLE . . . so there are a few more portrait sessions of this family already coming in the future, can’t wait.

Share a comment with them, everyone loves hearing how good they look :)

Kunz @ La Paloma | Family Portraits in Tucson Arizona

I finally had the chance to photograph a young family, who happen to be really good friends of mine, at a location not too distant from my home. La Paloma has a small “basin” before the entrance to the resort that is just a fun place, beautiful views and lush grass. The weather could not have been better! Wow, I wish it would stay like this the rest of the year, it was awesome!

Anyways . . . Brandon, Liz and Taevin are just one of the cutest families out there. Liz is expecting their 2nd son and they wanted to get their family portraits done sooner than later :D I had a blast working with them . . . I have to say, the final pic (the nice formal family pic) is buttah! That background is amazing!!!
