Our good friends are expecting their second child (another girl!) and came over to our home studio for a family maternity portrait session, along with their beautiful daughter. We can't wait to see their family grow yet again!

Business Headshot Portraits for Adaptive Curriculum

I recently completed a business headshot portrait session for Scottsdale-based Adaptive Curriculum, a company that provides interactive software with the goal of transforming math and science education.

The session was done on-location at their office, in a conference room. I brought in full studio lighting and a backdrop. We all had a great time creating some engaging images to capture the energy and personality of this company.

Ms. Carol's Gymkids Gymnastics in Mesa

We were invited to photograph Ms. Carol's Gymkids annual gymnastics rehearsal again this summer. 

Ms. Carol's is a non-competitive, family-friendly gym offering classes in gymnastics, cheer, dance, ballet, jazz, hip hop, and break dance. But don't let the non-competitive label fool you--the gym offers beginner, intermediate, and advanced level classes equivalent to the USAG program levels 1 - 6. Ms. Carol herself has been an AAFA-certified instructor for over 25 years. Best of all, she has a huge passion for what she does, and it shows in the enthusiastic participation of her students!

Orr Family Reunion, California

Part of our Orr family gathered for a mini "reunion" of sorts in southern California this August. It was great to have everyone together, including Amanda and I, brother Geoff and sister-in-law Mavis (and her brother Brian and sister Karen) who flew in from Washington, my parents Russ and Kristen from Nevada, and of course Grandma Orr, aunt Barbara and uncle Mark in California. The weather was also a good 20 - 30 degrees cooler than Phoenix, and the coast beautiful as always.

An iridescent green "June bug" that terrorized the other passengers aboard our San Diego Bay ferry to Coronado Island. He was actually quite friendly.

The seared Hawaiian tuna stack appetizer at C Level restaurant--amazing! It was topped with papaya-mango salsa, and garnished with banana and taro chips.
