levi & ayla | brother & sister

Sunday, May 1st, 2011

Levi and Ayla are so amazing! I first met them both on the way to a Robot Battle-bot competition, hence the orange robot shirt Levi has on. The robot show included everything from battle competitions, robot hockey, to robot dance competitions. No robot show is complete without a guest appearance of R2-D2 of which Levi was very excited to see. Even after hours walking around, Levi had enough energy to play baseball and jump on a trampoline. He is truly full of energy and that energy is definitely captured in these photos.

Ayla on the other hand was so calm and collective, observing everything around her. She didn’t seem to mind her big brother’s high energy activities or the camera. In fact, I think she rather enjoined being in front of the camera. Judging from the photos, I think she may have a modeling career in her future. ;)

Both Levi and Ayla are great kids and are truly loved by their parents. One day when I have children of my own, I hope that they would be as fantastic as these two. Thank you Levi and Ayla for an awesome weekend!

Tuesday, June 1st, 2010

Two months ago I had the opportunity to rent some studio equipment for a corporate photoshoot. Luckily the rental was for one week, so I setup my garage as an impromptu studio to test the equipment. Who better to test out my setup but the neighborhood children.

Peyton, Genevieve, & Isabella are our neighborhoods adorable girl squad. They ride around on their bikes and razor scooters nearly every day. We’ve gotten to know the girls very well over the two years we have lived here and this is because all three of them absolutely love visiting with our pugs. Unfortunately for them their father is highly allergic to dogs, so our pugs serve as their surrogate pets.

Equipemnt used: AlienBees Ringlight ABR800 into an umbrella, and two Canon Speedlights
