Carrie is a local Lularoe retailer and she wanted to do a session with her daughter Cadence and her daughter’s best friend, Audrey. Despite a grey day here on the central coast, we […]

Photographing babies is seriously the best. It is challenging and rewarding and so full of expressions. They are curious little creatures and I just love watching how they learn. Everything is new and beautiful. We had to contend with icy winds, lack of a good nap and a wild thing big brother but that just […]
