Bridgeport | Valencia Portrait Photographer

There’s a storm brew­ing here in town regard­ing the Bridge­port devel­op­ment and their place with­in the greater Valen­cia mas­ter­plan. In a nut­shell yes­ter­day signs went up stat­ing Bridge­port was pri­vate prop­er­ty for res­i­dents only and pho­tog­ra­phy was specif­i­cal­ly pro­hib­it­ed. Accord­ing to the city of San­ta Clari­ta the areas sur­round­ing the lake at Bridge­port were always zoned and intend­ed to have pub­lic access and those areas are con­sid­ered part of the Valen­cia paseo net­work and there­for the signs are ille­gal and must be removed. Tonight the signs remain threat­en­ing pros­e­cu­tion if you enter Bridge­port or God for­bid take a pic­ture. I was asked to write an arti­cle on the sub­ject for SCVtalk.com. With­in 20 min­utes of my arti­cle being post­ed the Sig­nal News­pa­per called and asked me for an inter­view. Clear­ly peo­ple pay atten­tion to SCVtalk.com and the infor­ma­tion and opin­ions shared there. Please go read the arti­cle, learn the details and leave some com­ments with your opin­ions on the sit­u­a­tion. Here’s some pic­tures I’ve tak­en at Bridge­port over the years, it would be a darn shame if that area were no longer avail­able to SCV res­i­dents even though the devel­op­ment was approved for con­struc­tion based upon it being open the the pub­lic and part of the paseo net­work. Imag­ine what our beau­ti­ful com­mu­ni­ty would be like if each neigh­bor­hood in Valen­cia declared their sec­tion of the paseos pri­vate prop­er­ty and blocked access. It cer­tain­ly would no longer be the com­mu­ni­ty we’ve all come to love and call home.

North Carolina Workshop | Santa Clarita Portrait Photographer

This past week­end I had the plea­sure of trav­el­ing to North Car­oli­na with 21 oth­er amaz­ing pho­tog­ra­phers and friends for a work­shop. We worked with a vari­ety of mod­els and had the oppor­tu­ni­ty to learn as well as teach our spe­cial­ties. We pho­tographed high school seniors, new­born babies, tween kids, fam­i­lies, mater­ni­ty, hot mar­ried cou­ples, sib­lings, all coor­di­nat­ed by our amaz­ing host­ess Dana Jack­son of Car­oli­na Beach. It was tru­ly a priv­i­lege to watch such fan­tas­tic pho­tog­ra­phers do their thing, I real­ly learned so much. I got to lead and instruct nat­ur­al light new­born as well as tween kids and hope I shared some valu­able infor­ma­tion with my peers. Life long friend­ships were forged and we all came away rein­vig­o­rat­ed and inspired. Here’s just a lit­tle bit of what I shot:

2009- the year in review | Santa Clarita Portrait Photographer

2009 has been such an amaz­ing year, so many new clients have been added to my pho­tog­ra­phy fam­i­ly! While more and more peo­ple are find­ing me online, the bread and but­ter of my busi­ness is your word of mouth refer­rals. I am pro­found­ly hum­bled and grate­ful for the aston­ish­ing way my friends, fam­i­ly and for­mer clients talk me up. To all of you- a HUGE thank you! So here you are my 2009! So many favorites from this year it was impos­si­ble to choose. This is just one from each shoot of the year but if I were choos­ing my favorites there could be so many more. Sor­ry Valen­cia High Dance, there were just too many of you to include every­one so there are just a few of you, but love you all :)

Of course when my chil­dren saw this they said “well where are we???” Well babies, you aren’t exact­ly cus­tomers, but just for you here is the year in our fam­i­ly!

Thank you, thank you, thank you for mak­ing 2009 mag­i­cal!
