I’ve known this adorable lady for many years. Her mom has hired me several times to photograph their (amazing) adult family. When she emailed to let me know there was a baby on the way I couldn’t WAIT to do this session. Because, I mean, look at her. Full of personality and comfortable in your own skin? NOTHING BETTER.

We started in their little apartment, where the good light was found in the bedroom, bathroom, and balcony. Then we headed down to the grass near the beach to read and people watch, some of their favorite activities. As we were driving home, I saw the pink garage next to the red/blue burger joint and asked them to stop. It just happened to be the alley for the apartment she used to live in as a single girl. I love connections like that. Great little special nuggets for a special time.

2013 session review

I know that I was very quiet online in 2013, but I was still plugging away in my quiet little way. Plugging away at my business and myself/my life. After so much quiet time, I have a better idea of what I want to continue sharing here, and to start me off, I chose one image from each of my sessions last year. I just quickly went through each of my client folders and grabbed one image that stood out.

What surprised me seeing one year together like this, is that you can really see what is inspiring and meaningful to me: sunshine, shadow, faces, laughter, water, air, physical closeness, exploration, color, balance, calmness, strength, fun, delight.
