Aaaaaaaaahhhhhhh!  I am so fortunate with couples.  Maybe it’s the location:  the mountains, the lakes, the rivers… it just brings out the best- the laid back– in people getting married here in the valley.  Or maybe, people who get married out here just have the whole wedding thing in perspective!

Whatever the case, last weekend with Kendra and Nick proves the point!  They were fantastic.  So fun, so easy going…  and just up for anything… not to mention taking direction so very well!

Thanks you two!  I wish you the very best… and if you’re wedding is any indication of what’s to come, there’s no question you’ve a long, happy life together to look forward to!

Slideshow soon to follow!

Matt and Laura.  This looks like an engagement shoot doesn’t it?  They’re so young and pretty.

But, no.  In actuality these two have been married for, like, forever… OK, so perhaps not forever, but certainly long enough to have created two little boys of their own.  But without a doubt, there’s still a whole lotta love… as evidenced by their candor and generosity in these shots….. More from the wonderful Cavallo Point.

Families are a trip.  I love shooting families. Particularly with young kids.  I can always count on capturing something interesting… and active… and just downright crazy!

Again, a group of willing victims participants arrived… bright, shiny and beautiful…. Cavallo Point (where it would NOT stop raining) with Ralph, Lindsay, Santiago and young Miles….

Having grown up with only a younger sister, and now raising two boys of my own, brothers- regardless the age- never fail to amaze and fascinate me….

Parents, Ralph and Lindsay, enjoying some precious moments alone… ummmm… with me.

And back to boys… during a brief moment of repose….

A GREAT weekend was had by all… though I can’t say the same for the poor souls who enlisted for this modelling gig. So hats off to the wonderful Dave… a surfer and devoted father and husband… but as you can see none of that stopped me from having him stand in front of me half naked!!  He is a surfer after all…..  And so, without further ado… a place beautiful, dreamy and of tremendous hippified contemplation… Stinson Beach.

And, alas… I felt I should ask him to suit up….

Thank goodness for the flower section of the grocery store.  Save for the occasional, here today gone tomorrow crocus, spring blooms are still a fair ways off…. particularly given the next week of weather better suited to mid-March than mid-April.

So, while ol’ Ma Nature takes her sweet time bringing colour to the valley, I’ll take it upon myself….
