Finally I have finished the images from this glorious photoshoot.  We had such a fun day out in the backyard and running around the house changing outfits and playing with bubbles and fire.  All of the images looked so great and the ladies were so beautiful, I had a hard time picking out my favorites.  We shot in Costa Mesa and the wind started to pick up a little towards the end of the shoot, but we managed. Just some hair touch ups and everything was smooth again.  
I loved the martini theme.  It was so much fun and added a playfulness to the images.  The pictures I had originally envisioned turned out better than I could have ever imagined and they girls helped me improvise and come up with some different scenarios. 
This was the first time taking photos with Marissa, she was such a natural.  It must be all of that performing she has done that makes the camera smile for her.
This was my second time working with Aja, and she has got to be one of the most comfortable people in front of the camera I know.  
I can't wait to get the rest of the pictures taken for the other months for the calendar I want to put together this year.  It should be all put together this August and ready for sale in the fall.  Just in time for Christmas Gifts!
I plan on using the images also for my portfolio and hopefully in some other printed materials like greeting cards, and on the jewelry I would like to make.  If I ever get around to actually making it that is.  I have been too lazy this year and have not accomplished all of the goals I have set for myself, but every shoot I do inspires me for the next one and the next one. 
I LOVE taking pictures.  I want to share my visions of beauty with the world!    
Please enjoy these images and give me any hints or share ideas you may have for future shoots.  
I am not great at location scouting, so if you know of any great places, please share your knowledge.
Follow Your Passion!!
