Stylish Rock n Roll Lifestyle Family Session in San Diego

Shannon, Sean, and little Arrow.

Shannon got a tattoo of an arrow a few months before he was conceived and ten months later Arrow arrived earthside. The story behind the name.

I photographed their wedding in Temecula in 2016 at the beautiful Wolf Feather Honey Farm and was overjoyed when Shannon reached out about a lifestyle family session. We hung out at their house and chatted about pregnancy and babies and she recalled her birth story with Arrow. I was pregnant with Vivienne at the time so I held on to every word asking for detail after detail. As time went on I caught them going about their usual routine capturing that moment in time, no interruptions or posing. Just them being them.

Bohemian Family Lifestyle Session in Big Sur

Kelsey reached out to me a few months ago and described her desire for capturing the untamed beauty of love. She said they were looking for romantic and rugged, amongst the backdrop of ragged cliffs, waxed jackets and the ocean. They live in Carmel by the Sea surrounded by their horses and wildlings and thought the beaches there would be a good location but I had something better in mind. I just so happened to be in Northern California photographing in San Francisco and gave her a ring to discuss options. I told her I had the most perfect location in mind, a place that is relatively a secret, a location that has no name on the map but is a mix of magic and romance. Big Sur. I asked her to trust me and simply gave her the time and coordinates to meet me for there is no cell service nor is the location on a map.
