Life is like a Conga dance. It is rhythmic. It moves in a direction — can be right or wrong, and sometimes moves erratically. You’re part of a larger group, made up of family and friends. Even when you’re not in the mood for it, it always turns out alright. Jennifer and Jonathan and their J-kids are first-time clients, and they arrived with THE best attitude: willing to try anything! This is what I sounded like throughout their shoot: “Ooh ooh, I have an idea!” And som
Jeff and Louisa’s shoot this weekend with their 6-year old talkative charmer and 3-year old living doll (heehee) had all the feels.

For their shoot this year, we brainstormed all week and ended up at a location that was pretty much in their backyard! What a little gem, and at gol
Roberta and Alex wanted to have their shoot in Arizona where they’d be around cacti and the warm sun. Except we didn’t go to Arizona, and it wasn’t very warm. 🙂 We did, however, find cacti, and it was SO COOL. It looked like we walked into a page of a Dr. Seuss book.
