we’re juuuust coming to a close on a bathroom reno – we still have minor things to finish, a sink faucet to switch out, some wall art to locate – but fern doesn’t judge. and I’m just here sitting on the floor admiring the white on white, and wondering why I was dead against it for so long.

Relaxed family shoots are my favorite and this one definitely fits the bill. We took full advantage of a calm and quiet morning on Pasadena Beach, spending the hour chasing Gracie around as she sang and danced and splashed – because of course, she ran the show. Thanks for having me, Barker family! You guys and your little Cindy Lou Who are the sweetest. <3

I’ve been super lucky to have grown up at a cabin.

Berry picking, swimming, water skiing, boating, skidooing, crafting, eating, nightly fires… Whatever we could get into, we did. Best of all though was spending time with an aunt who would make brownies with you at any hour, and an uncle who would torment you to kingdom come with a twinkle in his blue eyes. And now I get to head back down as an adult, spend time with them for 60th birthdays, and photograph their beautiful grandchildren (my cousins) who get the same charmed childhood and who don’t even know it yet.

All of this being said, I’d love to shoot more alternative family sessions if anyone’s interested. Have a cabin nearby? A favorite family swim spot? A grandparents getaway down the bay?

Let’s make some memories where you’ll remember them.
