I had the pleasure of working with Crystal earlier this year on her maternity photos. And as I'm trying to finally share all of my shoots, it's time you get to meet Crystal! By the time we shot Crystal's photos, she was very very pregnant.Read More

Back in May I had the pleasure of photographing Deepika and her lovely family! When she brought up the location we would be shooting at my jaw dropped, straight to the floor! The venue was extravagant!....Read More
I recently had the pleasure of photographing Sneha and Heemesh Seth's amazing family. Our shoot started out with just Sneha, Heemesh, and their 2 young daughters. What made this shoot extra special is as we progressed, more family members were able to show up, and soon we had multiple generations of their family taking part. It was great to get to see the young girls interact with their grandparents, and them taking so much joy in the experience. Here are a few photos from the shoot. Enjoy!
I would also like to thank Sneha especially, because she has referred more friends to me than anyone I have ever photographed!
A while back I had the pleasure of working with the John's family! They were such a fun group to work with, and each of them had a unique and humorous personality that you remember!....Read More
When it comes to maternity photos I'm not the expert. I'll start off with saying that much. Maybe because I'm a guy and have never been pregnant...(not possible I know, unless you've seen that movie where Arnold Schwarzenegger becomes pregnant, which is very improbable. Maybe a side effect of steroids.) Ok lets start over. That was an awkward introduction to this post. I enjoy doing maternity shoots because there is a real connection between the mother to be and her unborn child, a connection so strong you can feel the emotion through a photograph. So, when Cherie contacted me about doing her maternity shoot and told me the location she wanted I knew I needed to do something different. Of course the Scottsdale Civic Center park is one of the hot spots for local photographers around town, it's so overdone that I needed to do something different here. Especially since the LOVE sculpture by Robert Indiana is the most over photographed thing in the park. Here's what I came up with.
Lucky for me that day the fountains were turned off due to maintenance allowing for a clean reflection in the foreground water!
When Cherie requested this location I knew she would also request a photo with the LOVE statue by Robert Indiana. The two go hand in hand. But, I wasn't just going to plop her right in front, I needed the focus to be on her, after all that's why we were there! So we walked around a little bit and I decided to put her on the opposite side of the fountains from me in hopes i could get a nice reflection of her and the statue in the water. The stars aligned and I came out with a totally unique photo from a non unique location!
Here are a few more photos from the session, by the time of me writing this Cherie will have had her baby. Best wishes to both of them!
I was fortunate enough to be hosting Benjamin Wong otherwise known as just Von Wong in the photography community during the week of my photo shoot with Mike Ryan and his lovely girlfriend and her daughter. Ben's an accomplished photographer already, but to keep his skill set growing he plans to move into video. So with a generous amount of gear lent from Sony he opted to follow me around on my shoot with Mike, and shoot some awesome behind the scenes footage. Here's the epic finished product of my first ever behind the scenes video! ***EXCITING!!!**
Luckily Triple Scoop Music has some amazing royalty free music I was able to use, which really added to the awesomeness of the video.
On top of the great video, I also came out of this shoot with some awesome stills. -->
