EUREKA PHOTO
alright camera, let's tell a story.

Katalin & Her Baby Bump

 

katalin-maternity-1

Have you ever met someone who you just instantly clicked with? Katalin was that woman for me! I loved her energy and her personality — after the session we sat and had coffees together at Starbucks and it really was like sitting with an old friend.

This mama-to-be can’t be more excited about her little man, who is expected to say hello to the world in March — just a couple short weeks away!

I have been feeling so thankful for photography and the connections that I have been able to make through my camera. Katalin just reinforced those feelings ten fold. I’m looking forward to staying in touch and organizing play dates for our little ones.

Steve & Amy

stamo-2016-5

Steve and Amy have been friends for a lonnnng time.

They’ve been a couple a long time too.

Then they became co-workers, and subsequently co-managers.

Next, you probably saw this coming… husband and wife.

But the story doesn’t end there, of course, marriage is just the beginning. And who would you rather start your new beginning with than your closest friend, your partner in crime, your team mate, your husband … your wife.

That’s exactly what Steve and Amy are doing.

These two are always taking it to the next level, in their relationship, in their personal adventures and their business endeavors. Definitely a couple to keep your eye on! I’m so happy for you both and can’t wait to see where the years take you.

Personal: December in Bishop, California

Fumie on Heavenly Path V1

I really can’t count how many times Phil and I have said, “We live in the best place in the world.” We say it a lot. Daily maybe.

Bishop, California has treated us well for just shy of 4 years, but we sincerely look forward to spending the rest of our days here, growing our family and raising our little John Henry here. And although this post isn’t about the Eastern Sierra Women’s March, we participated today along with some 580 other Eastern Sierra residents and couldn’t have felt more encouraged and positive about our town and our greater community as a whole.

But onto the bouldering and how beautiful Bishop is in December. We live is a town that has world-class rock climbing and mountain views that I believe are unriveled. A town that is generally sleepy and quite, very much our style. And this year Bishop has been getting some much needed snow that has only added to the beauty of the Owens Valley.

We are so thankful to live in a place that we love, of course! But to live in a place that our friends love too — a place where they are willing to travel hundreds of miles just to visit us (ok and climb) now that is  something to be even more thankful for.

Here is a compliation of pictures from December 2016. Lots of climbing with friends, outdoor adventures and caputing the many magnificent faces of my dear friend Fumie Hiromitsu.

Enjoy.

Jiselle & Brett

Jiselle & Brett came down from Mammoth Lakes to get some pictures in the wild iris fields before the flowers were done for the season — the photo session just happened to turn into an impromptu engagement session! Jiselle asked Brett to marry her just a day or two before and of course — he said yes! Congratulations Jiselle & Brett!

Emerson Amelia Celebrates 1 Year

highlight-emer-turns-1-16

This little one isn’t stranger to the wild lands of Bishop, California. Her mom & dad make sure this little jelly bean gets lots of play time and outside adventure. She surely is going to grow up to be the kind of kid who likes to play in mud, build forts and from time to time – skins a knee or two.

highlight-emer-turns-1-10

Emerson’s mom is an excellent graphic designer (which it doesn’t hurt to consider her a good friend!) She and I can exchange photography, baby & family portrait sessions for design. Cough cough – notice my EP logo? That’s thanks to Emerson’s lovely mom.

Well on this Friday afternoon we all snuck out to one of the many sunflower fields and photographed this little gem just as she was, Emerson.

The sunflower fields are just about gone but Bishop California has plenty to keep a photographer busy for a lifetime. Until the next photo session.

The Bassetts

It seems like there isn’t anything more great then the love we share together. Love as a couple, love as a family. It just seems like it can’t get much better.

What a joy it was to capture some of this beautiful family’s love & goodness.

Alicia & Michael

Married in front of just a few, close family members, Alicia & Michael exchanged marriage vows in one of the Eastern Sierra’s most beautiful canyons, Rock Creek.

Small, intimate & laid back — this enchanting wedding was a dream come true.

Getting to Know the Stuprichs

KaylaFam

Have you ever met someone and thought “Why don’t I already know you?!” That’s how I felt when I finally met Kayla. This lady and her amazing family seemed like old friends only after meeting them briefly. It was a pleasure to play in the flowers them and I look forward to photographing them again — especially as that little man grows — seriously adorable!
