lavender + lemons: The Villa

Villa Amodei is a stunning estate in Somis, California. The theme of lemons and lavender comes from The Villa's lemon orchards and lavender that grow on the property. We had the tremendous good fortune of being the lucky photographers chosen to document a day at The Villa for their upcoming promo materials. Award winning Chef Gael prepares foods rich in this site's attributes and the ambiance is amazing. Thank you to Jenn & Ivan, Kristina for your coordination, Brittany and Anderson for being beautiful, everyone from hair, makeup, and styling and we cannot forget Cathryn VanBreene for her ideas and expertise.

jackson + nathan

Baby Jackson and big brother Nathan were amazing! Jackson is only 2 weeks old and his big brother is 4. Here are a few from Jackson's first photo shoot. Enjoy!

alex + mike

Alex & Mike...what can I say? Besides the crazy lady that hit me in the chest with a stack of papers & napkins while in the middle of this shoot, the images came out pretty amazing. I hope you love these photos!

so sue mi

My good friend Rich has an insane ring company called Suemi. Check his site at His company is about to blow up in Japan and I got the chance to shoot some killer images all throughout downtown LA for some promo images he needed. He and I had a blast. I love this stuff!
