Santa Cruz Family Portrait Session {The E Family}

I’m always so honored to photograph this family, who have become dear friends. I had been looking forward to this shoot for a long time.

We walked to their favorite spot and the light was amazing. I have a few classic ones of Finch, the family dog shaking things up a bit and climbing over everyone in search of snacks, but here is one of the more civilized shots.

Amazing Big Brother…

Sweet Little Brother…

the best dog ever…

a few that resonated with me…

a series that I love…

one of my favorites…

What can I say? Except thank you so much for a wonderful evening. You guys are amazing.

With much Love,
