Grand Canyon trip 2011

February 17, 2011 | 2 Comments

A trip to the Grand Canyon is beginning to become a necessity for Matt, Albert and I who have gone at the beginning of the year for the past three years.  The year 2011 was no different, and we took off on a Friday afternoon towards that gigantic hole in the ground that never ceases to be amazing to behold, no matter how many times you see it.

A weekend filled with snow, elk, a few games of pool, boots, giant crows, and of course, the Grand Canyon.

Hope you all enjoy the photos from our trip (I certainly enjoyed taking them)!

Mark in Big Bear and the Sole Purpose.

As some of you may remember, during the Thanksgiving holiday I went up to the mountains of Big Bear with Matt and his family and spent the weekend in a cabin in the snow.  While we were up there, surrounded by snow, trees, and tons of nature-y beauty, we realized that it was an ideal spot for a little shoot.  So Mark (Matt’s dad) broke out his guitar and banjo, and we had a quick portrait session.

Mark also asked me recently to take some photos for his band, Sole Purpose.  I haven’t shot many band portraits before, so I figured it’d be a great opportunity to practice and perhaps pick up a few tricks for next time.

So here are the photos from both Mark’s portrait shoot in Big Bear, as well as Sole Purpose.  Hope you all enjoy :)

Last weekend, I decided to force my little sister Caitlin into accompanying me to a park I’ve shot at before for a quick, fun little photo shoot.  We hung out there for about 2 hours, because we ended up having so much fun.  She got to make all the silly faces she wanted (which, for Caitlin is A LOT), and I kept finding different spots to make her to pose for me in.  I’m excited to share the full post with you all today, now that I’ve finally finished editing everything  :)

So now, I present to you, a collection of photos of my lovely little sister in an equally lovely setting.

Bonus : A couple of Caitlin’s more.. interesting faces.
