Mi Familia: A Family Portrait Session

Vince and Lisa (parents to yesterday’s adorable Luigi) came out to the studio for their first family portrait session with us.

Not only were they a really photogenic family, they wasted no time getting into character and making eyes at the camera.

They felt right at home with each other and we got to see some goofy shots.

And some very sweet ones.

And no one had to hold a gun to dad’s head for him to get silly.

Couples Photo Opp: Jason + Joe

Our dear friends Jason and Joe visited us over the weekend and mentioned they needed a photo of themselves for a family project. N jumped at the opportunity and brought along lighting since we were planning on shooting close to dusk and it had been cloudy most of the day. As we walked back to their B&B, it started to drizzle and we took cover on the front porch. Moments later, the clouds parted and rays of light splayed across the “set.” Foregoing the lighting, he was able to catch some great snapshots with natural light. Here are a few of our favorites of the handsome couple.

Beauty and the Beast: Behind-the-Scenes of Shooting Product

Photography is many things: meaningful, informative, brilliant. The path to reach the end result however, doesn’t always have to be.

A tipped light. A couple cardboard boxes for support. Some tissue used to help bounce light…

Presto! A glamorous rotor!

A Bear of a Time: On the Set with Filmmaker Gus Péwé

Our good friend, artist and sculptor Tim Péwé has a son who’s equally as talented in another medium – film. Gus is still a student (he’ll be attending California Institute of the Arts this Fall) but a budding filmmaker that’s already debuted his works in various places. This past week N shot a costume that came to be with the help of his parents and producer Robert Hoxie, with spiritual guidance from Tommy Colangelo. It’s a costume that will be used in his upcoming film, Same Ghost Every Night, which reached a successful Kickstarter campaign goal recently. The photos not only document how awesome the costume is but will be used for promoting the film.

There was a lot of horsing around in the studio.

Below, Gus, Tommy and Robert keep it real.

Value has Three Legs.

At the grocery store the cost of peanut butter has gone up and so has orange juice. Little Debbie’s Oatmeal Cream Pies haven’t gotten more expensive, but they’re smaller. What’s not only held its price but upped its value?

Tripods.

I give you snowy night time photography.

Latest Tribehaus Shoot : Three Lighting Set Ups, Three Looks

We’ve started shooting for Tribehaus on a regular basis and every week is an exciting chance to sharpen our creative processes. Last weekend we hit the nail on the head when we worked with model Maeve and collaborated again with make up artist Taryn Scalise of Tough Love MPD. Along with the “chief” of Tribehaus, Anna Bagozzi, the stars were in alignment because we had some of the most successful shots we’ve seen a long while. Don’t you agree?
