Newport Beach Family Session - The Metcalf's Do Newport Beach

The Metcalf family came all the way down from San Francisco to do a mini-vacay in Orange County.  They've never had family photos taken before, so they contacted us to photograph them for the first time.  We were honored to be their first family photographers ;-)

We suggested Newport Beach, as it's a great place to walk around and find things to do with the family. This was their first time here, so they really didn't know what to expect. We were pretty much their tour guide as we showed them around the Balboa Pier and the Balboa Pavilion. Spending a good part of the day showing them around all while getting to know them was so much fun. It became real easy to sneak in photos while we explored the area. We love spending time here with our own family, so seeing them experience Newport just made us smile the entire time.

Komodo Venice - Food Photography For The Menu

Aside from photographing weddings and families, we've been doing food photography as well.  We were unsure if food photography was a good fit for our blog, but figured what the heck, everyone loves food right?  We photographed the grand opening of Komodo Venice last year (you can see those pictures here), and they asked us to come back to take new pictures of their menu items.  We were ecstatic because 1. we love the people at Komodo, and 2. they said we could eat the food after we photographed it! ;-)  No we couldn't finish all this food, but we definitely had a chance to taste everything and share it with the staff.  It was DELICIOUS!  Our favorite is definitely the Brutus Salad (basically an anti-salad and is made of tater tots and their crazy jalapeno aioli *drool*).  If you haven't been there yet, it is definitely a must if you are in the LA area.
