Today we raced the clouds and impending rain to do our first real family photo shoot with a professional photographer since The Button made us a family of four almost three years ago. Our friend Patrick Ang (a.k.a. The Other Asian SAHD in Bakersfield) met us downtown, not far from where we live, for an urban shoot in the alleys and side streets of the nascent arts district, just down the street from my old place of employment.
It was a lot of fun, though I don’t know much fun the processing part is for Patrick since he took a hell of a lot of photos to go through because The Button, shall we say, prefers to be in motion. Dude works fast though—a couple hours later, and he already had a preview set up for us to look at, including the gorgeous shot above.
A nice way to start the weekend. Next, Rad Dad rocks LA at our old neighborhood bookstore, Los Feliz’ awesome indie Skylight Books, with me, editor Tomás Moniz, and special guests children’s author Lisa Yee and kindie musician Mista Cookie Jar. Starts at five p.m. on Saturday, November 12, and is totally family-friendly. See you there!
