In January we were privileged to once again provide the photography for The Dance Company. Their staff really outdid themselves this year with Morgan coming up with some really creative group posing and Patricia keeping everything running smooth. Our Christmas Ornaments once again were the hit of the day.  We decided to provide something a little extra for them and produced the composite below highlighting their Lead dancers and individual dancers of the day.  Thanks again!

"STARS/Ballerina Recital"

STARS/Ballerina Recital Group Composite

We recently had the privilege of photographing at The Dance Co. in Long Beach CA. They are a wonderful dance studio with a dedicated staff and committed dancers. Their upcoming STARS/Thumbelina Ballet Recital is this coming Saturday, February 5th.  Visit their website to get the details.  Thank you Morgan and Donna for inviting us back and a big Thanks to Morgan for acting as our dance stylist. Also we couldn’t have pulled off such a smooth day without Patricia’s great organization skills!  Thanks Patricia. Here are just a few images from the day.

Every year our church hosts a wonderful alternative to Halloween.  We call it:  Light the Night

The specific intent of having the event on October 31st each year is to provide a safe alternative to Trick or Treating and other Halloween activities.  Light the Night is also a bridge building event designed to open the campus to the community. It’s free to the public except for Food sales which is very nominal. They offer a number of age specific activities including cupcake walks and games for our Little Light the Night visitors, game booths and face painting for older kids and a band for teenagers!  Each year they give away over two tons of candy, 500 cakes, 300 cupcakes with over 5,000 people attending.

We were privileged to photograph families in The Pumpkin Patch.  It was a hoot.  Hope you see you there next year!

    “L” is so adorable. It would be fun to put a caption behind each expression. I wonder what she was thinking about when these photos were taken…

    THE NUTCRACKER — It’s a nice way to start a beautiful tradition- see the Nutcracker to watch Huntington Beach’s youth perform this wonderful holiday show.

“L” is now a two year old.  It was bound to happen but where did the last two years go?  She is a delight and full of life!  She has one speed and that is FAST! Did I mention this girl has new cowgirl boots?
