While in Whistler, we had to move out of our rental for a little bit, so we decided to see a bit of the west coast! I’ve always wanted to do the drive from Baja to Whistler (or Alaska if I’m super ambitious). We managed to get to Jedediah Smith Redwoods State Park in California, and make our way back up to Whistler along the coast! We met and stayed with friends, awesome Air BnB’s, and truly connected with some family time. This is what life is all about for us!!
When we were in Whistler, we had a special arrangement that we had to move out of our place a couple times while we were there. So… our friends came up with an awesome idea - a road trip to Tofino!! We were lucky enough to rent an amazing place right by the beach. We enjoyed days exploring the beach and forests, nights of bonfires on the beach while reminiscing about the day, and watching all of our kids (and dog) play together like champions - soaking up life in this beautiful slice of paradise. Another spot on the earth that is truly magic.
With a bit of work out west during the winter, we decided we would go for an extended visit to one of our favorite spots, Whistler! It was so special for us to be there with friends who are like family, getting to reconnect and showing Layla what life is like in the magic mountains. There is nothing like it!
Last year was pretty huge for our family! We freshly moved to Brooklyn at the end of 2016 to a wonderful neighborhood called Fort Greene. My business now leans more heavily towards the portrait side of photography, and it has been the best thing ever! I've gotten more into cinematography as well, which is super exciting. The travel agenda had us everywhere! Mexico, Nevada (x3), Australia (x2), Cuba, California, Boston (x2), Maryland, South Carolina and Louisiana! All along the way, we've been able to soak up Layla's incredible development and feed her insatiable appetite to learn. It is truly awesome being her Dad! Here's a brief selection of a few favorite photos from last year.
The other day we were celebrating a friends birthday and I snapped a pretty funny sequence of a few friends doing the salmon into the pool (thanks to my brand spankin' new camera the Nikon D4). I posted one frame and it got some serious attention on the infamous facebook so I figured I would post the whole sequence here. 'Av a look!
and here's the funny frame on its own
