Santa Cruz Family Portrait Photography: home

Q: When you have an 8.5 month old and an almost 3 year old, where do you go to have your family portrait taken?













A: nowhere.

Dear Cayce, Jer, JH, & C,

Thank you for having me over. I loved every single minute of it. Especially the timeout in the guitar case, the cookies, and sharing my Holga with the budding photographer.  You guys are amazing. There is, indeed, no place like home.

With Much, Much LOVE,
