Announcing a new goPro workshop! San Diego, California

Tyler and I love teaching these things. Especially in the middle of winter in a nice beachy location :) 

If you've been sitting on the fence about coming to one of our goPro workshops-  sit on the fence no longer. Because sitting on fences is horribly uncomfortable. Info below!


February 6-7th 2015!

What is a goPro workshop?  

It's a TWO day, intense workshop for budding photographers and already-in-the-biz photogs who need a lift. Portfolio building, photoshop talk, lighting discussions, the secrets of the biz, etc.

We're arranging multiple shoots, lots of helpful info- it will make your head explode. In a good way. Plus, throughout the years of teaching this we've realized that a definite perk of our goPro workshop is the community you join; we have a Facebook group of lots of wonderful past workshoppers who are still in touch and helping each other out every day.



Day 1

Finding confidence to go pro

Interacting with clients and keeping them happy

Seeing the light and using it to your advantage

Finding inspiration and how to stay creative and fresh

Business matters- taking it up a notch and pricing structures

Editing: finding your own style and running with it

Day 2

Workflow (Bridge, Camera Raw and Lightroom)

Blogging and Social Networking

two practice shoots (families, children, wedding couple)


To reserve your spot, email  This workshop is $898 for the two days, and you can choose to stay in the party house with us for $50 a night starting Thursday, February 5th.  

We cannot express how much we love teaching these goPro workshops!  See you there! 

Did you hear? Winter is coming! I could not be happier about this, as I deem myself a snow bunny since I daydream about snowboarding daily.  Tyler showed me this awesome, AWESOME video and I wanted to share it with you. Just in case you are equally obsessed with winter.

Overheard at a coffee shop:

"Hello, what can I get you?"

"I'll take a strawberry-banana smoothie please. Without the strawberries."

Don't worry, the kids had spotters :)

Happy 8th Birthday, Isabelle

Isabelle turned eight in April, and believe it or not, we did her birthday shoot early!  But now we are posting it three months late so... meh.

Isabelle chose to be a flamenco dancer for this shoot- I think she was influenced by all the flamenco dresses we saw in shops while in Spain. She was able to go shopping for this dress and- in what is really quite a sad story- found several dresses she liked waaaaay better than this very very inexpensive (I think it was about $7) dress.  Except those dresses were beautiful, handmade, $300 dresses. So we didn't go that route and she was a bit disappointed. For about two seconds. Then, in typical fabulous Izzy fashion, she was over it and on to the next thing to see.

We really enjoyed the Spain trip with Isabelle. Everything was exciting, she was pointing everywhere and fascinated by both Spanish cities and countryside alike. She is such a spunky, energetic little ball of fire that it's hard not to be happy around her. 

Isabelle brings life into our family and we wouldn't be the same without her. She celebrated for a solid week- it's true what they say. Eight is great!

Happy belated birthday to you, sweet Izzy.
