As a Photojournalist for the East County Herald I get the opportunity to meet a lot of wonderful people in our community doing some very wonderful things, I particularly love shooting family and youth events. Each picture below has a story; a child's first fish, the big performance , the first game, meeting a real live pirate! To most it's just a picture, but for those who know the story, the image means a whole lot more, a frozen moment in their lives, an heirloom. I am so lucky that these people allow me to be a part of their story, and for that, photography will mean so much more to me than simply a press of the shutter. Everyone is so busy these days, pictures are a great way for us all to slow down and experience a frozen moment of our lives. Take a moment, go grab a coffee, kick up your feet, and enjoy these images and the wonderful stories behind them.
If you have an East County event that you would like covered, please contact me, I'll do my best to cover it.
