Run to Feed the Hungry

Happy Thanksgiving! It is usually the Daffin family tradition to run (or I should say walk) in the annual Run to Feed the Hungry race on Thanksgiving morning. This year was the 14th annual and what a turn out. Unofficial numbers were around 22,ooo participants. Officials hope to raise $500,000 in this year's event. The race originated in 1994 and was started by Gaylord Walker in conjunction with the Sacramento Food Bank. The inaugrual event had 800 participants. The race is a great success and shows the generosity of those that are thankful for what they have and are willing to share with those less fortunate. If you live in the Sacramento area, you should plan on running (or walking) next year. Hope to see you in 2008!

Tammy and Rick

I photographed Tammy and Rick this past weekend during their engagement session. They said they were nervous but it didn't show. They were awesome! And a lot of fun. I told them they could do commercial print. Rick laughed and said that he would keep his day job. Take a look and let them know what you think.

Mild Trashing

This past Sunday I took photos of my daughter and a friend of her's who wanted to trash their high school prom dresses. What I found out later was that they really didn't want to ruin them, they just wanted to take some fun pictures in them. It's all a matter of perspective... I think these two are getting ready for something much bigger. I'm in touble....

Tyler and Bryce at the Pumpkin Patch

I brought my grandsons to the pumpkin patch this week to pick up a few pumpkins. There was a corn maze and hay pyramid and a zillion pumpkins. I think we got some good ones this year :-)

In addition to the Harvest Carnival (below) I also had a photo shoot with Lierra and Eli. We went to a park near their house and let them run and play while I chased and shot. It was a beautiful afternoon which made for some beautiful photos. Check 'em out.

The Fresques Girls

It's been a long time since my last post but I've been very busy. I had a photoshoot a couple of weeks ago with a friend of mine who wanted to suprise her husband with photos of their three daughters. What a fun shoot and the girls were awesome models. Check out some of the photos...

Trash the Dress in Linclon, CA

I had the opportunity to shoot a TTD session with a bride of 2 years. She said she saw a photographer shoot a session like this on the news and thought "Hey, that looks like fun". And it was. We started near a railroad tunnel. After a little gardening, she needed to cool off in the pool. Check it out!
