BABY MIKA - 18 days
Last weekend I took a trip to sunny Los Angeles where I was born and raised to photograph a few newborns. I met with Veronica and her husband Saturday morning to photograph their newborn son Mika in their apartment. The natural lighting in their bedroom was just beautiful! Here are a few of the photos from the shoot!
"The advice I like to give young artists, or really anybody who’ll listen to me, is not to wait around for inspiration. Inspiration is for amateurs; the rest of us just show up and get to work. If you wait around for the clouds to part and a bolt of lightning to strike you in the brain, you are not going to make an awful lot of work. All the best ideas come out of the process; they come out of the work itself. Things occur to you. If you’re sitting around trying to dream up a great art idea, you can sit there a long time before anything happens. But if you just get to work, something will occur to you and something else will occur to you and something else that you reject will push you in another direction. Inspiration is absolutely unnecessary and somehow deceptive. You feel like you need this great idea before you can get down to work, and I find that’s almost never the case."

Welcome to my Tumblr page!
I thought it was about time to start a new Tumblr. I started out with my photography really focusing on live music, but now that I’m geared more towards portraits I figured it was time to let the other one go. So welcome to my new blog! Follow for photos, updates and more!
I really bothers me when someone’s automatic response to a beautiful photo is “What camera was used?” or “What time of day was this taken?”
It just doesn’t matter.
Life is so much more beautiful, and simple, when we don’t focus on the “how” of art.
It just is.
