I keep sitting on images because I want to write a beautiful detailed description of the day to accompany each feature. but alas, my words (and extra time) are few and far between these days so you'll have to let the images speak for themselves (which is kind of my job anyway, right?). full of handmade, intentional details, a picnic lunch and a walk through the forest with all their guests, Linda + Kagan had one of my favorites weddings of all time. a ceramicist and a woodworker, it only makes sense that these two would have a dreamy brunch wedding among the redwoods of sequoia national park. so much goodness, such delicious light, beauty everywhere.
In addition to my 2017 goal of stepping in front of the camera a bit more, I'm challenging myself to share more personal snapshots of our family on a monthly basis. This is mostly a plot to get myself to actually edit our personal images instead of just throwing them on a hard drive but so long as I think the internet is holding me accountable, I should become none the wiser.
2016 turned out to be one of our most-traveled years to date. Though we hardly left the state, we had opportunity to explore the vast topographies and climates of our dear california and we soaked up every minute of it. Some super sweet family time for the three of us before we welcome this fourth member any day now. For personal work I try to shoot mostly film as it adds to my being more present and aware - I'm not just firing away at every little moment but more choosy about what I document and less distracted by my camera. And then we get to relive the whole experience when the film comes back a few days later. I 100% recommend it. below are some favorites from our time in sequoia, big bear, twenty-nine palms and joshua tree.
