My Family’s Last Pilgrimage to Angel Stadium for 2009

This past weekend my family made our last trip of the season down to Anaheim’s Angel Stadium. We were at the games on Saturday and Sunday. This is one of my favorite images from Sunday, when our seats were out next to the bullpen. This was taken as the relief pitchers were heading to bullpen. Matt Palmer #32 is a former Fresno Grizzlies player. He has been in the Angels bullpen as a long reliever, but was taken out of the bullpen last night as the Angels starting pitcher. His last start was back in July, a game that the kids and I happened to be at. Last night against the Texas Rangers, he allowed only one hit, earning his 11th win of the season. Matt is now 11-2. Wish we could have been there!

Luciana and her Mom

null

I have had the privilege of having Luciana and her mom in my studio twice now. During her first visit, she was a bit fussy…so we scheduled a second appointment for her to come back with her mom another day at an earlier time. What a joy it is to have newborns in my studio! I love this shot of the two of them…..just look at those little toes!

Melissa, thank you for bringing your precious little girl into my studio and trusting me to capture the memories of this amazing time in your lives!

Stephanie and Austin

Saturday I had the privilege of photographing Stephanie and Austin’s wedding. Stephanie’s mom, Kelly, was my son’s fifth grade teacher. Before the ceremony she said to me. “OK, I took care of your little boy, now it’s time for you to take care of my little girl.” Kelly, thank you for entrusting me with your daughter’s wedding. It was a joy to be there and capture the memories as they were created. Everything about the day was beautiful. Here are a handful of images from Saturday. I’ll post some more tomorrow!

Happy 4th of July. Thanks to those that have made it possible!

What a way to start the 4th of July weekend. I had the privilege of photographing some of our Nation’s finest come home after spending months deployed protecting our freedom.

There’s nothing like being there for moments like this……
null

One of three squadrons that came home yesterday. They all fly over the hanger in formation and then come in to land.

null

The three squadrons each had their own welcome home table with gifts for the soldiers.

null

Other families had PAID photographers to come out and photograph the homecoming. I was there because of my involvement with Operation Love ReUnited. There’s no charge to the families for me to come out and photograph their homecomings.

null

The families had their share of cameras as well………

null

Lots of flags, signs, and anxious children waiting for daddy to come home.

null

null

Or waiting for their husbands, uncles, brothers, and sons……….

null

Just because I liked this shot…..

The third squadron of jets to come in were the Blue Diamonds. I stayed for their arrival after finishing with the family that had requested my services. I was introduced to a wife of one of the pilots coming in with the Blue Diamonds. They have four children, all who were there waiting for dad. The family camera had gotten left at home. I stayed to capture some memories for them as well.

This was taken just as the families start to run out to meet their loved ones.

null

The family I was photographing on their way to meet their soldier.

null

There were lots of little ones reunited with their dads yesterday. I can’t imagine being apart from my children for that long. Once again, to these men and women that serve away from home and family……..THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!!!!

null

Remember as you celebrate this weekend, that there are many families that have given ALL for you to be able to celebrate your freedom. Remember to thank a veteran, a family member of a military member, or a military member currently serving for all they’ve done.
