G Aronow Photography Blog bio picture
  • Welcome to my blog!

    Hi there and welcome to my blog! Thanks for stopping by! Here you will find recent photos of my fabulous clients, and probably some of my kids too. Ok, well I try to keep the kids to a minimum, but sometimes I can't resist.
    I love photographing people, whether it is an important event like a wedding, or just everyday family life. I like to think of my camera as a little magic box with which I can capture memories so you can hold onto them for always.
    Hope you will stay awhile, relax, and enjoy!

Meet Toby and Tina – July Pet Contest Winners

In July we had our first ever Pet Photography Contest on Facebook.  The winners were these two lovely felines Toby and Tina.  I love furry animals, dogs and cats alike.  I miss my big dog Jake, a happy go lucky Samoyed.  But we do have four kitties, Lutu, Lester, Lulu Bell, and Leo.  At least one of them wakes me up every night… I know, I know, I should close my door, but then I miss them:) I have taken many photographs of them over the years.  But I think it is different photographing someone else’s pets, just like it is photographing someone else’s children.  So, hence the Pet Contest. Photographing pets definitely presents challenges, such as, how do you get them to stay in one place long enough for you to take the perfect shot?  Or more specifically, how do you get them to stay in the spot that has the perfect lighting long enough for you to get the shot?  Hmmm….  well I can only imagine, like anything, it comes with practice.  These two kitties were curious, so that is one thing that I had going in my favor.  At least they didn’t go hide under a bed, or the like!  They were super sweet and I love these pictures!  Congrats on winning Samantha and Andres, hope you like the pictures as much as I do!

Baby Henry + Family | Nevada City, CA

The cutie pie was born the first week in July and these portraits were taken of Henry and his family at about 2 weeks of age.  I am amazed at the intensity of his gaze every time I look at the first picture below.  Does it grab you like it does me?  Babies, they are so little, but no less of presence!!!  I am sure any parent would agree with me there…

He was welcomed by his parents, Beth and Barry, and two big sisters, Lucy and Katie.  I am sure he will be getting lots of attention and Beth will be getting lots of help (whether she wants it or not) with two big sisters around.:) I am also super excited because I am going to get to photograph Henry a few more times during his first year as part of my new Bebé Collection.  So you all will be seeing this cutie again!!!


Many thanks to Francine of Lulu B Custom Knits for her fabulous diaper covers!

Lisa + Jeremy | Harmony Ridge Lodge Nevada City,CA

These two wonderful people are so clearly filled with love for one another.  It was an awesome wedding under the big redwood and cedar trees at the Harmony Ridge Lodge just outside of Nevada City.  A clear celebration of this love.  Lisa looked absolutely gorgeous in her cream satin gown.  And Jeremy, albeit a little nervous, looked quite handsome in his tux.  Of course, those nerves went away as soon as he saw his beautiful bride walking down the isle.  After that it was a piece of cake…and oh the cupcakes did look so yummy!

Lisa and Jeremy, I am so happy for you two!  May you have years and years of love, laughter and happiness!!!

    My favorite, by far, is the scrabble shot.ReplyCancel

Kendra + Rob Wedding | Grass Valley, CA

I am so excited to share some of the photographs of Kendra and Rob’s wedding.  This was a second marriage for both Kendra and Rob and in some ways I think it made it all the more significant.  It was clear they were getting married for all the right reasons.  That they are deeply in love with each other and want to spend their life together.  Simple.  Profound.  Awesome.  I was so honored to be a part of it.

It was a garden wedding at their home just outside Grass Valley.  It made me reminisce of Provence with all the lavender, sunshine, and delicious food (although the ribs definitely gave it that American flare!).  Kendra looked stunning in her lace gown.  Kendra and Rob, I hope you had a fabulous honeymoon!  You deserved it!
