New Head Shots

I am one of those photographers that is not fond of being in front of the lens. When a camera is pointed my direction I automatically pull out the silly faces. So when Jennifer Low and I got together to take new head shots she had quite the challenge before her! Out of all the awkward looks I gave her I found two that I liked. One is here below. I know two doesn't sound like a very successful session, but it was! I have had sessions where I just didn't like anything. I have a lot of goofy micro expressions which can be very entertaining for clients, but they don't record well.

I will post a few of Jennifer's head shots next.

Kids Portraits in Surprise Arizona

I went to Arizona in December for a brief trip to visit family. I hate that they live so far away, but now that the kids have iPods it makes Skype calls super easy. Here are the latest images of my sister's fabulous five!
Above, in orange, is my nephew that has autism - he is always a challenge to shoot. I would say these are some of the best images he has ever taken! +Andrea Roberts

Family Photo Session in Mountain View, CA

A few years ago, ok four years ago - time flies, I photographed Masako's maternity session and their newborn session when their first baby arrived. Their oldest is now four and a big sister. I recently photographed the family again when their latest addition arrived. Here are a few of my favorites. The second image makes me laugh every time I look at it.

The New Travel Blog

Bryon and I are embarking on a winter road trip! It will be a short one this time, but we have started a travel blog if anyone wants to follow. darnertrips.wordpress.com
The travel blog isn't as pretty yet because I am just starting to use Word Press, but we will be adding images and such as we travel.

New Photo Product - iPhone Case

Yesterday I received an email from my preferred lab - Bay Photo. They are now printing on iPhone cases! How cool is that? I cant wait to get one ordered!

They offer it in rubber or plastic for the iPhone 5 and rubber for the iPhone 4 and 4S. There are several color options and the images are vibrant and durable metal prints infused on aluminum.

The print is scratch-resistant and easy to clean using commercial glass cleaner.

These are not yet offered on my galleries but you can contact me for details.

Image above is from the Bay Photo website and was not taken by me. Great shot though!
