Make a Wish – Batman comes to town

What does a boy do when his hero shows up in real life? I can’t even begin to tell you how honored I was to be able to take part in capturing the wish of such a sweet child.  You would have to be living on another planet to not know what the MAKE A WISH FOUNDATION is and does… so in case you are on said planet… MAKE A WISH a non profit foundation that grants “Wishes” to children who are undergoing difficult medical conditions or have a terminal illness.  To be able to grant a wish to child is not only a privilege and honor, but also a moving experience for all involved. Caleb’s wish ended up delighting more then just him as his hero Batman came to his school in person!

With friends and classmates gathered around, Batman arrived in style, even bringing the Bat-Mobile out of the Bat-Cave. With high fives and cheers from the crowd, everyone was overjoyed to see Gotham City’s #1 hero live and in person…No one was more surprised then Caleb to find out that of all people, Batman was here specifically to see him!
With whispers in ear and words of encouragement Caleb got to meet his hero.

It wasn’t long before trouble followed as the evil Bane showed up to fight The Dark Knight, and for a minute there it looked as if evil was going to win.

Alas, Batman regained his strength to overcome Bane, but just as Batman was handing him over the the Vacaville Police Department…

Joker came and stole the surprise that was for meant for Caleb.  Looks like Joker wanted to go to Disney world! Boo Joker! That Wish is NOT for You!

Vacaville’s very own Chief John Carli reached out to Caleb for help.  Together, Chief Carli and Caleb chased The Joker through the streets. They eventually caught him and Caleb locked him in jail! Good Job Caleb!

But notice who is taunting in the back ground?  How is it that the Joker always gets away?

Fiercely Innocent

“Treat the earth well: we do not inherit the Earth from our ancestors, we borrow it from our children.”
– Ancient Indian Proverb

Lately I have been wanting to something a little different with my photoshoots. I had a vision of a girl coming into her own. She dreams of the days she can be fierce and yet remains soft an innocent within herself. I was so thrilled to find that Emily wanted to do this shoot. She has a natural beauty that radiates purity. Her pensive look makes you wonder what she is thinking, but watch out, when you get to know her, the playful side comes out. In this earthy photoshoot, Emily’s resolve rose up as we asked her to pose with (Diamond) a horse she just met. Great Job Emily and a big THANK YOU to everyone who made this happen.
