I get nervous for some shoots more than others. I was especially nervous for the Diederichs shoot because they are good friends with The Youngrens down in San Diego, two photographers I have looked up to for a long time. But once we started shooting and they forgave me for dumping their newborn over in his basket, I relaxed a bit. Plus their three-year-old was awesome and reminded me of Maddie.

As I mentioned, they were recently blessed with a baby boy and needed to get some photos for his announcement. We had a great time together.

“How will I take over the world?”

Congratulations, guys!
