The Ripandelli Family

It was a stunning day at the cove. The sky was filled with vibrant colors of orange and red, a sunset picture Laura had been wanting and…. a baby girl on the way. CONGRATS Laura, Al and Alfie!

I am very excited for you and your family. I know Alfie will be a wonderful brother, and Dad is going to do a lot of showing off at all the Padres game, will we get to see her on the big screen?

Here is a peek at my favorites!






Derrick Turner + Family

Remember the contest everyone participated in? I cannot thank everyone enough for helping me place first. Derrick was the winner of the family photo drawing.

Derrick, thank you for participating, I do hope you enjoyed the photo session and your photos. It was quite challenging to come up with poses for an all-male photo session but I enjoy a challenge. Your boys remind me of my son, and I can’t believe what a small world we live in, we are neighbors! It was very nice meeting you, Isaiah, and Derrick Jr.

I will post your photos this week, please pick out your choice of (5) digital negatives OR (5) 5×7 and (1) 8×10 print of choice PLUS (15) 3.5×5 of one of your favorite photo to share with your family and friends.






Angela + John {Engagement Session}

Not only as a photographer, do I get to fulfill my need to be creative, get a bit artsy or colorful with my couple but my favorite images are images not intended for the camera.  The moment they actually forget you are there.  When they get a bit silly with each other.  Or when he looks at her and falls in love with her all over again.

Here’s a clip of your video: Gosh I’m gushing for the both of you.
Angela & John. Spending the rest of my life with you.


Permission granted to copy and paste this to your online photo album, facebook, and/ blog to share with family and friends.  Thank you Angela and John for being so wonderful!  This is just a sneak peek at your E-session, the rest of your images will be posted on the website soon.  🙂
