Changes Have Occurred! We have been working hard to bring you a more concise, easy to navigate website experience at Second Wind Photos.  Many ideas have been bantered about, but ultimately we chose to preserve your valuable time and showcase our photos in a more compelling way. 

We have re-designed our homepage with a clean, fresh look.  We've consolidated the number of galleries, concentrating on what we love to do...weddings, portraits, and events.  Drilling down to the galleries not only have we personalized each gallery page, we've eliminated the static rows of photos where you have to click through.  We found it...well, quite frankly...boring!  So we livened things up a bit by creating videos through our friends at Animoto.  Now the photos flow and have a life of their own!

Please take a few minutes and check out the new site...I think you will enjoy it! sure to leave comments.  We want to hear how your experience was.

Back in the swing of things I was recently in Las Vegas and caught this great shot of James.  You can't tell in this picture, but he was running around without a diaper...and feeling quite free!

Redwood Regional Park - Oakland Hills We took a advantage of a break in scheduled portrait shoots and had a great time this past Sunday exploring the Redwood Regional Park.  The weather was perfect and the scenery was gorgeous.  It's funny though...we spent more time in a meadow photographing the tiny things that when put with all the other tiny things, creates the beauty that is nature.

I managed to capture a couple of photos of Larry doing what he does best...getting those unique perspectives to get that one of a kind photo.

Check out some of our photos on facebook.  See you there!

Another great weekend! Had a wonderful time at the Rowell Ranch Rodeo this weekend!  The weather was just right plus we managed to get seats in the corner, top level, and in the shade.  Had plenty of room to capture the fun moments - and scary moments.  Please check out the new gallery I just posted.  I've made it possible to purchase any photo(s) you desire.

Bridal Fair Success! We had a great time at the bridal fair yesterday at the Fairmont Hotel in San Jose!  There were hundreds of brides and grooms that attended and I think we we met most of them.  We gave out hundreds of bath salts with a lemongrass fragrance.  The wonderful lemon smell lured many to our booth!

We were lucky to be the first booth in the main ballroom.  We even had visitors during the hour long fashion show.   The winner of our drawing won a  prize of a scented candle, lotions and soaps...a $100 value.  

The Great Bridal Expo people were wonderful to work with with Wendy and Shelly taking care of us like VIP's.  We hope to work with them again.

My feet were so sore from standing all day, but I was so busy, I didn't notice til I stopped!  Today, I feel just fine and can't wait until the next fair!

Lovin' the new studio! We did our first shoot in our new studio this past weekend!  It was great fun with time flying by quickly.  Gotta love a place next to a coffee and deli sandwich shop! 

After the shoot, Larry and I did a little tour of the Montclair Village area.  Lots of great shops there!  The surrounding area is so beautiful with lots of tress of all different shapes, sizes, and colors.  I bet fall foliage will be gorgeous later this year. 

We noticed that residents love dogs - big dogs, little dogs, and everything in between.  We saw lots of people walking their dogs ... walking them!

We'd love to photograph you and yours...just give us a call.  510-363-9577
