A few years back we had the pleasure of photographing Victor and Angie’s wedding. They’ve now had a beautiful baby girl names Isla. The ‘l’ is silent, (I-la) kinda sounds like you’re about to say ‘I love you’, such a sweet name. Isla is 4 months old and we photographed this session at our new expanded studio in Murrieta. It was great getting to break in our new props/set with this growing family.
We had the opportunity to create something special for Jeremy’s professional dance headshots. He has been traveling to out of state auditions and needed some new headshots. Visualizing the perfect location and lighting with an edge, we set out to bring the best out in the talented dancer for this shoot. He’s got some moves, this was a fun shoot!
To his surprise, he wasn’t as naturally gifted in dance as he was in baseball and soccer.
“I took my first ballet class and hated it,” he recalls. “I was so sore afterwards. I didn’t know a plié from a tendu.”
Dance became a hobby, then a passion and finally a career goal for Zapanta. He auditioned for professional ballet companies after graduating from high school and performed in regional productions of The Nutcracker.
Maternity Session Photography – Thanks Nicole for having us capture another special memory for you and your growing family. The dress she wore was such a nice complement to the outdoorsy scene we chose for the shoot. Here are a few images from the nature setting, sweet shop and studio. Part of the fun is brainstorming location and theme with our mommies to be, and helping plan a shoot that will bring out her personal style. Nicole had great ideas for us to go off of and allowed us to get creative with her photos – love the way this session evolved, she is beautiful.
We had the pleasure of photographing 3 month old baby Scarlett – she is so precious! Deshun and I capture a lot of weddings, but it’s really tough to say what we love photographing better, our beautiful wedding couples or sweet little babies?! One thing for sure is that we’re totally in love with what we do and we are honored to get to photograph all the different moments and memories that life brings! xoxo ~ Yas + D
