Salina Yoon Children’s Books | San Elijo Hills Photography

This gorgeous lady has written around 200 children’s books!  I was super honored to create her new headshot which will be featured on her websites and booksleeves!  In a way, I’m going to be published too! Woot!  Please visit her  website here to see her most recent release “Kaleidoscope” and all the fabulous books she has available.  I was able to get my hands on one of the Kaleidoscope books and it brought all kinds of nostalgic memories to me when I was a kid looking through a tubular kaeidoscope!  Salina told me to enjoy looking through my new lens :)  The book is so lovely and creative, and it’s such an honor to work with such fabulously cool chick!

During her session I was surprised to see how much we had in common.  For starters, we both stepped out of our Priuses at the same time to introduce ourselves. (would that make them Priuii?)   Since the session, we were able to share another common love while chatting away - wine!  Thanks for such a fun session, Salina!

(Her web designer is fast! You can also see her headshot here on her about page )



Sing Star Kyra {headshots San Diego}

I photographed this little miss a couple of years ago with her brother and I remember that they were a rambunctious pair, full of energy and laughter!  I designed one of my  most unique storyboards that captured that lovely laughter and energy (and I still use that storyboard as one of my main samples today!).  I was so excited to get to capture that energy once again with Kyra in the spotlight for some headshots.

Kyra is getting into acting and singing, and she has already been asked to sing with a jazz band in San Diego!  I can’t wait to hear her shine on that big stage!

She is still that lovely little girl full of energy, but she also showed a more mature side in her session.  She took direction like she was already a little pro :).  Good luck, Kyra!  Please remember us when you are famous!

Royal Ruckus Fall/Winter Catalog published!

Here is one of the many projects I’ve been working on during the first quarter.  I always have a great time with the Royal Ruckus models!  Tamara Rochholz, the owner and designer of Royal Ruckus, has outdone herself with these latest styles.  She will be appearing at Childish Couture on March 13th if you would like to meet her, see her Spring/Summer line, and see a sneak peek of the new Fall/Winter designs in person!
