During our most recent trip to Malta, we were able to spend quite a bit of quality time with our good friends Beatrix and Marcus, and their little daughter Nevada. They are currently expecting their second child, and so they asked if I would capture this season of their life before having their second child. We had an impromptu photo shoot in a local park near their house in Gzira, and below are some of my favorite shots. It took quite a bit of clowning around to get Nevada to sit still, pose, and smile, but one wouldn’t expect anything less from a bubbly two year old.  All that matters is that we got her to smile!

Tasmin and Chris’s Wedding | Anaheim Hills, CA

Earlier this year, I had the honor to shoot Tasmin and Chris’ wedding in Anaheim Hills, California. I worked with Tasmin for a year at Peet’s Coffee and Tea while in college and was truly honored when she and Chris asked me to shoot their wedding. It was a beautiful day, and a great wedding to be a part of.

Below are some of my favorite shots of the day. Enjoy!

We Family Photo Shoot | Irvine, CA

A few weeks ago, I had the opportunity of doing a photo shoot for some good friends and co-workers Mitch and Woo, and their adorable sons Micah and Josiah. They wanted some photos of their family to send out as Christmas cards and it sure was fun to do the shoot with them! Here are some of my favorites, taken at Turtle Rock Park in Irvine.

The whole family

Micah, the oldest, loved both being in front of the camera.

Josiah, on the other hand, was a little bit more suspicious of the whole situation.

Discovering Gozo | Malta Travel Photographer

Boat in Gozo

The Maltese Islands are made up of three major islands: Malta, Comino, and Gozo.  Malta, the main island, is where the majority of a population of around 400,000 people live. Comino is a tiny island between Malta and Gozo, and is known for its world-class salt water lagoon. Gozo, the smaller of the two inhabited islands, has some of the best sights that the Maltese Islands have to offer. On my last trip to Malta, we spent a day on Gozo, exploring and discovering the best that this small island has to offer.  Today, I share some of my favorite shots from our day in Gozo.

A photo of Comino, the island between Gozo and Malta, as seen on our ferry ride in the morning:

Our first stop on the island was the Azure Window, which is a large naturally-formed window in the sea:

Our second stop was the costal town of Xlendi, a town I definitely plan on returning to:

Our final stop was the old city of Victoria, the capital of Gozo:

And for the final shot, leaving on the ferry headed back to Malta – my first but definitely not last visit to Gozo!
