San Diego Family Beach Photography at the Hotel Del

Sunday evening I had a great time photographing the Bazinet family at the beach in Coronado. We had a chilly and somewhat windy evening but made the best of it.

Here are some of the photos from last night's family beach photo shoot:

San Diego Family Beach Photography at the Hotel Del Coronado

Friday evening I had a blast working with the Ruben family from Colorado. They picked a great time for a vacation in San Diego - they'd just gotten two feet of snow back home. It was in the mid-70's at the beach.

Here are some favorites from this photo shoot....these guys were willing to get a little wetter than most!

San Diego Maternity Photography

Today I met with the Murdocks for a very fun maternity session. These guys were a blast to work with, and we got some really fun photos. They are expecting their first child in a couple of weeks, and they are having a surprise! Boy, girl, nobody knows....but for now, baby is referred to as "Circus". I didn't ask.

Their dog Lucky came along and joined in the fun. Poor, poor Lucky just has no idea how his life is about to be turned upside down. Poor Lucky.

Here are a few favorite maternity photos from today's photo shoot:

The Stanley Hotel in Estes Park Colorado

This week I had to do some work in Boulder, Colorado. In my typical fashion I flew into Denver on Tuesday without having booked a hotel (I'm a crazy Pisces, we do things like this). That afternoon I'm on my laptop trying to figure out where to stay. I had tentatively set up appointments with a couple of local "aspiring models" but as they often do, both flaked.

So without any particular place that I had to be outside of Boulder, I started broadening my search. I had been to Estes Park before, a small town up in the mountains (7500' approx) and only a one hour drive from Boulder. I started fishing around hotels in Estes Park, and thought "what the heck, I'll see what rooms at the Stanley Hotel are going for". To my delight, just $89! Heck, the Holiday Inn Boulder wanted $125!

Without a seconds hesitation, I booked my room.

The Stanley Hotel in Estes Park was the inspiration behind Stephen King's book The Shining. Many think that the movie was filmed there - it was not. But it did give him the idea to start the book, and in 1996 there was a TV mini series made after the book and movie, and it was in fact filmed at The Stanley Hotel.

I spent a good deal of time shooting around the hotel, here are some of my favorite photos.

Parts of the hotel are said to be haunted. Here is a "ghost" checking in at the front desk:

The Stanley Hotel opened in 1909 (yep, 100 years old this year). It was so popular that they immediately built The Manor House - a smaller scale version of the original, built right next to it. I stayed in room 1208 at The Manor House.

San Diego Newborn and Children's Photography

Today we photographed the Petersen family at our studio to celebrate the birth of their latest child Kyle, just one week old. Kyle also brought along his parents and older sister Kaylee.

This was a great photo shoot because we got to use a lot of our newly acquired props - some really cool newborn hats and a beautiful antique sofa.

Here are some favorites from this newborn photo shoot:
