Fuji 400H has been my go-to film of choice for many years now, so when I saw Fuji’s announcement about it being discontinued I definitely was overcome with many different emotions. First I was in denial, then I became sad and frustrated because it is such a big tool I use to create the “look” […]

Whenever I get to shoot at the Mission San Juan Capistrano, I am one happy photographer!  There are so many beautiful backdrops to use.  Sarah & Blaine were such a joy to photograph!  The day started out pretty cloudy but at the end of our session, the sun decided to peek out and we ended […]
