Fun at the Fair

Pomona, California

Here’s some more shots from the LA County Fair. I love all the animals, especially this inquisitive sheep.

The animals are well-fed, some don’t even want to eat any more.

My sis makes a friend.

We also look at cows and calves…
pigs and piglets.

There’s lots of food at the fair, including chocolate-covered bacon.

This scarecrow is too cute to scare anyone away.
There are lots of other activities at the fair. There’s even a pirate section where one can get a pirate name. Mine is Blue Arm Willy.

What a fun day!

Introducing…. Polka Pin Ups

It all started with a bride asking me if I would take pin-up photos of her. Since then, I’ve photographed women from all walks of life. If you’re looking for a unique present for your groom or husband this is one he’ll never forget! Check out polkapinups.com for more information and a gallery.

In honor of breast cancer awareness month, if you book a pin up session in October, $25 will go to City of Hope.

Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Almost all of us know someone with breast cancer. Over 186 thousand women and 1,764 men were diagnosed with breast cancer in 2005, the most recent year numbers available from the CDC. Those numbers are scary.

In the month of October, Polka Photos will donate 20% of print sales to City of Hope, “an innovative biomedical research, treatment and educational institution dedicated to the prevention and cure of cancer and other life-threatening illness.” You can order prints through your Pictage online gallery. Get your holiday presents early AND help fight breast cancer!


Postcards from the Ledge

Los Angeles, California

I promised you a cliffhanger, well here it is…
The wedding day is always super busy. Some couples decide to have a Day After portrait session to capture some one-of-a-kind images. I wanted to capture a unique image for Tony and Claudia ON their wedding day. It took some planning. Michael and I scouted out this location before hand. I rented a 2X tele-extender which turned my 70-200mm lens into a 140-400mm. While I set up down below, Michael led the bride and groom to the edge of the cliff. It was more difficult then I thought to hold the lens steady but this shot was definitely worth the effort!
