When Perrin reached out, I was so excited! Photographing her and Sal’s wedding a few years back was so amazing, and now they have brought little London into the world - a true show stealer! Everyone was going to be in the same country, which is a rare occasion, so what better way to celebrate and remember their bond together than with a photo session to make some beautiful artwork together. We had a great time, and as you can see, they are all a pleasure to be around!
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.
When Meghan reached out we were on our road trip on the west coast and I was SO excited to swing through Tacoma, WA on our way back north to photograph her amazing family! She and Ryan just added another beautiful baby boy to their tribe, and are truly a family to look up to. Their grace with one another, fun spirits, and family values are so special and unique. We had a bit of rain on our outdoor parade plans, and photographed some beautiful and fun moments showing how good life is in the Mandell house. They now have some beautiful collections of artwork on their walls to see every day!!
Carter, what an awesome little dude!! I have known the Mangold family for a long time, and was so happy to photograph their family again after they were reunited. Rob had to go away for work to Vietnam for an extended period of time, so you can imagine how elated they were to finally be home together again as a family. Carter is growing up like crazy and is the light in their eyes. I’m so happy they have these photos proudly displayed on their walls to remind them of how great their life is, every day!
