seven letter word for family • the findleys • redondo beach, ca

I couldn’t possibly write all that I’d want about my wonderful friend Dana. She’s known me through thick, thin, & just plain crazy.

rain & shine • the byars family • palos verdes estates, ca

I had a late afternoon session scheduled with the Byars family, & was grumbling to myself about the forecasted rain that had gotten heavier & heavier that day.

loco.motive • the perrault family • lomita, ca

Sh*t, this family has style. Excuse my French, but I’m kind of in awe of them, because they really do make parenthood look hip & cool. Anjalé & Kevin’s handsome, soulful boys are almost exactly the same age as our girls; Keaton is two days older than Zoë, & Mason is ten days older than […]

Oh my gosh, how I adore the Hockensmiths! The first time I met them, I was doing pictures just for Haley, who was just around three years old. Mama Jacque was expecting Hannah at the time. And every year, once in the spring/summer & once in the fall, I’ve had the chance to chronicle the […]
