…Goofy

goofy |ˈgo͞ofē| adj.  informal chiefly N. Amer. foolish; harmlessly eccentric.

Goofy might be an understatement with these two siblings! I have the great pleasure of working with Kristal everyday and this morning I had the honor of meeting her younger bro, Omar. It was drizzling when we set off to our destination, but as we Daly City folk know, all you have to do is leave DC and better weather appears! It was a short drive, so as per usual I made fun of Kristal to help set the mood! In a weeks time Omar is headed off to Air Force basic training. 7 1/2 weeks of pure physical training…yikes! As a present for their Mom, Kristal and Omar wanted some photos taken. Kristal was in rare form, my favorite! Arms swaying, quirky facial expressions, and lots of prancing took place. At first Omar was a little shell shocked, even though I’m sure he’s seen her act this way before. Before long, I knew Omar was holding out on me. A few views of some pretty embarrassing videos, he had willingly posted of himself, gave me just what I needed to pull out his true self. Needless to say a lot of dancing, jumping, laughing, and singing ensued. This was a fun one! Enjoy!

sea noun the expanse of salt water that covers most of the earth’s surface and surrounds its landmasses. Why are we so mesmerized by ginormous fish tanks?

…Ease

ease |ēz| noun absence of difficulty or effort I’d love to say that each session I do starts out immediately with an absence of difficulty or effort, but that would be a lie. It always, as it should, takes a few setups to ease into picture taking. It’s unnatural for most people. So, as the photographer it is my […]
