So much amazing news! And some BMX! LOL!

It’s been a while since I’ve posted, nearly three weeks! I’ve been swamped with travel and also my little sister’s wedding!!
But I have some other really amazing news to share with everyone – even though most of you know. My images from Eryn Holl’s wedding were featured on both CNN.com and AOL.com’s homepages! How incredible.

Eryn’s father Steve Holl’s fight with brain cancer and the experimental treatment that has helped prolong his life has made headlines and grabbed national attention. His story has been shared all over the U.S. and also has been broadcast during the Stand Up 2 Cancer telethon on national television. My photos from the wedding were shown on TV, and the image above has been used on tons of different websites.

It’s really incredible the reach that their story has had.

Also, before leaving town a few weeks ago for my sister’s wedding I met up with BMX stunt riders Sean Logan and Eric Hough.
Above is Sean getting some serious air at the jumps here in Burbank.

It was great to catch up with these guys again. I was shocked how long it had been since I last photographed them.

I don’t know the exact names of all the tricks Sean was throwin out, but he’s really impressive to watch in person.
We spent a lot of time BS’ing and talking. It was also incredibly hot that afternoon so Sean and Eric were takin it a bit easier than normal.

Unfortunately the jumps were overgrown with a lot of shrubs. So it made most all of the camera angles terrible. And it really detracts from just how high in the air Sean is. That bush, is about seven feet tall in front of me that I’m trying to shoot over.

Eric was throwing some pretty hard tricks, too.
And again, the bushes really take away from just how high he’s getting on these jumps.

Sean, left, and Eric, top, takin a break. It was still in the 80s when we were finishing shooting at 6pm.
Crazy weather that day, and these guys were probably burning up I would guess. Hell, I was sweatin’ a ton myself and I was just wearing some cargo shorts while standing there cooking in the sun.

About to call it a day and head out..

I have so many more shots I’d love to share with everyone from family shoots I did recently, too. I also have a bunch of photos from my little sister’s wedding a week ago. But, I’m going to have to save those and do a much longer blog about it┬áseparately. And expect another post soon about last week’s rooftop shoot that I did with eight models, two make up artists, and two hair stylists. I have a ton of great images from that.

Check back soon! I’ll be doing more frequent updates again since I’m back from traveling.
