I had first met Wilmarose and Joe when I photographed their wedding day over 4 years ago, I didn't expect it to become such a great friendship (with Joe and myself anyway) and through the years we've had more shoots, worked together, hung out together and they are basically my family now. So when they asked me to do their anniversary/maternity (if you wonder why her skinny self is holding her belly all the time, yes, she is pregnant) I of course jumped at the chance. So enjoy the photos and to my dudes, sorry, as Joe will make you feel fat. Like he made me feel once he took his shirt off, haha.

I've never been a big beach person even though I was born in Hawaii and I lived in San Diego for so many years. I always tell people the only thing that takes me to the beach is when a couple wants to photograph there. But when I went to the sand with Kristin and Phil in Costa Mesa, I got to stare out into the ocean and it definitely brought back a feeling of nostalgia. Missing the fact that I lived so close to the ocean and never took advantage of it, I may rethink not hanging on the sand. Especially if I get to hang with some cool folks.
I headed up to Orange County to meet up with Jomie and Ricky. We ran around the OC, heading to The Camp and The Lab trying to catch the light. Then hit up the Lido Theater in Newport Beach for some good ole popcorn.
