We returned on Friday evening from a very nice vacation with my brother and his family in Oregon. We started out by visiting the Jelly Belly factory in Fairfield, CA on the way up, then took in the incredible sights of Crater Lake. The water really is as blue as it looks in the image posted here. We eventually made it to the cabin we rented on the Deschutes River in Sunriver, OR. What a great place for a vacation! The cabin was custom built and was roomy & comfortable. We did some canoeing and local sightseeing and just really enjoyed being with family for a few days before heading home.

I first met April when my sons and her little brothers played sports together, and I was hired to take some modeling images for her portfolio. Fast forward a couple of years, and she's now a college student with an opportunity to compete for a cheerleading catalog assignment. Our photo session a few days ago resulted in some really nice images for her to submit, including this one.

I had the pleasure of meeting and photographing a very nice and talented organist named Ruth at her home studio. She is sitting in front of an incredible pipe organ in a custom cabinet, and Ruth not only played this instrument for me, but also a keyboard and piano. It's not often that I'm entertained by my portrait subjects!

My ongoing project for a landscape design company's book led me to Bakersfield last week. In addition to photographs of the company's office there and the usual work-in-progress images, it was fun to capture some lifestyle shots at one of the completed projects - a local retirement community.
