San Diego Weddings and Unique Portraits

Welcome to my archived blog space for Papaya Sky Photography. I ran Papaya Sky Photography part time in addition to my day job from the end of 2009 to 2012. After my son turned a few months old I decided to retire the business in order to focus more of my time on my two young kids and my day job.

For more information about what I'm doing now, please visit my current online portfolio website at

Portrait Session: Buffy Bailey, Oct 31

I've always thought of my friend Buffy as a just a small magical spell away from being a cat anyway, so when she showed up with bright-orange cat ears for her Halloween costume photoshoot on Oct 31 my first reaction was, "hey, why didn't you dress up?" But even though they look real in the photos those are actually NOT her real ears, folks! The tail is probably real though, right Buffy?

We cracked out some of the colored gels for my flash so I could turn her green and make this crazy art-style photo. Yay, creative lighting is so much fun! And also, friends that let you turn them green are the best kind of friends. :)
