one decision can change everything.

•••

It was just one decision. One simple little change is all it took. That one decision led Mario to Katie, who we all knew had been patiently and faithfully waiting for the right man to come along. And Mario came in at just the right time.

Like many of us modern daters, these two sweethearts met…

Lauren & Brad // Watsonville Beach Couples Session

Lauren and I had been talking about this shoot for ages. At my last job, I didn’t go into the office on Fridays, and that meant that most Friday mornings were spent at this lovely lady’s home with her then only child, Evynn. Those closest to Evynn have the privilege of calling her Evy, and I am one lucky lady because not only do I get to call her by her favorite nickname, but she calls me by…

Jenny + Brian // Aptos Seacliff Beach Portrait Session

The ocean has always been my most cherished happy place. I love to sit by the sea and listen to the waves crash over and over again. There's a certain majesty about it that causes me to cease all thought and listen to the earth that God created for me to enjoy. A whole world is beneath the surface—creatures so small, I wouldn't…

San Francisco + Us // 6-Monthaversary

I've never been a city girl. One way streets, crazy drivers, and super narrow lanes give me all kinds of anxiety. Poor Michael experienced that when he was navigating us through Lombard Street and the Pier 39 parking garage. I had my hands up to my face and my eyes glued to the floor of the car the entire way. It wasn't until we put the car in park and I got out that I could finally breathe again.

And boy did he pick a good spot for a deep breath.

From the top of the parking garage, I had a 360 degree view of…
