    The Banman Clan

    What are Sundays like for Jeff, Morgan, and Jeff’s girls Kate & Alex? Well, I got to find out recently. We planned one of my Family Photojournalism photography session to get a slice of life and document their life together. It started at Jeff and Morgan’s beautiful little home in Linda Vista with Morgan getting…

    Morgan Kellie Environmental Portraits | Otay Lake

    Last year I promised I would take photos of Morgan Kellie, a firecracker of a cowgirl, for her birthday. A year later, we finally got to do that. We headed out to Otay Lake to take care of the incredible tall grass, and great views of the surrounding mountains. Behold the beauty of Morgan Kellie!

  • LeeAn in Imperial Beach

    LeeAn in Imperial Beach

    I was excited to hear that my friend LeeAn was going to be in SoCal visiting her mom. I asked her if she would come down and hang out in San Diego for a day or so since I hadn’t seen her in about 9 years. She said she would if I did some headshots…

    Tamara’s Fine Art Portraits

    In our last portrait session at Torrey Pines, Tamara and I had planned on shooting film also for some close up nude and semi-nude fine art portrait photography. We ended up having to reschedule for another day unfortunately. We did the reshoot in La Jolla where I know of a little cove that provides some…

    Gloria and Her Music Box

    While I was photographing Tamara in the Windansea area of La Jolla (photos to come), we stopped at a house with a beautiful old door and lovely clay tube brick archways for a photo op. Gloria, the owner of the house came out to speak to us, and we were promptly invited into her house…

    Tamara’s Beach Portrait Session at Torrey Pines

    I was very fortunate to have recently photographed one of the most altruistic and enthusiastic people in the world. Tamarra Orras is a combination of Mother Theresa and Holly Golightly. Her current project is with Gonna Go To Ghana, providing a computer lab for the village of Tongo. Truly a good heart. And I think…

  • A Very Special Award of Merit

    What a special night! I received an Award of Merit at last night’s Professional Photographer’s of San Diego County. To top it off the subject was my little sister! This is from a session I did with her when she was visiting over Christmas time. I couldn’t be prouder of my lil sis, or the…

  • My Lil’ Sister Bonnie

    My Lil’ Sister Bonnie

    Since I left San Diego for Thailand back at the beginning of 2005, I’ve only seen my little sister Bonnie once. But me and my Mom got a special treat this Christmas. Bonnie made her way all the way down from her place in Olympia to hang out for a few days. It was so…

  • Self-Portrait, Windansea

    Self-Portrait, Windansea

    I love winter time in San Diego. The sun gets low enough in the sky for the full day, and I can photograph almost all day long if I want to. The above photo was taken at about three o’clock in the afternoon at Windansea Beach. The rich surfing history has always made it one…

    Stewart Family | Destination Family Photography | Austin, TX

    I was in Texas a few weeks back for a wedding in Houston, which worked out well for a number of photoshoots I had planned in Austin, as well as a nice “last minute” request from an old friend Jenn Stewart (who I knew in Austin, but also in San Diego from years back when…
