Pippy, the Black Lab

Pippy the black lab is definitely a shiny star in this family. She is so well loved by all of her people (and perhaps especially by dad Rick). Meet Courtenay and her three fellas, hubby Rick, and boys Mitchell and Will. We can't get over how tall Will is for a 14 year old! Cute session, thanks for coming in.


Viva Mexico

This February Francisco and I took of an adventure to Mexico. Having travelled to a number of beautiful locations in Mexico we were up for a new destination. Having heard about Huatulco, Oaxaca for years from family they decided to make it the destination. 

This mellow area offers a number of fun travel opportunities and a whopping 9 bays to explore, surf, swim or just enjoy a cold beer under a palapa at. Huatulco is the definition of unspoiled natural wonder with over 18 miles of coastline and 36 beaches. From sleepy protective coves, crashing waves surf spots to a nude beach (Zipolite), it really offers a little something for everyone, including the National Turtle Center

We found an amazing home perched at the edge of a cliff that opened directly onto panoramic views of the ocean. View this perfect adult retreat on Airbnb. This is not suitable for young children for safety reasons. But there are a number of great, on-the-beach, spots for families.

Huatulco turned out be a magical destination to relax. We were able to bracket our trip with a stop in Mexico City at each end to visit family. A visit to the top of the Monumento a la Revolución with Francisco's family led to lots of laughter as we climbed up and up to the very top. 360 degrees views were our reward. Mexico City is a city rich in culture, history, art and cuisine and an unforgettable travel desination itself.

Four Peas in a Pod

Shawn and Matt's lovely family visited us last weekend. Their kiddos Maggie and Bubba were so much fun to photograph.  Maggie dances for OBT, so she loved performing in front of the camera and Bubba just oozes charisma. Cute family, thanks for the fun!



This little cutie is six months old now and certainly the most charming and charismatic fella we've seen in a while. Everett was all smiles at his photo session... we're not sure if we are just exceptionally funny or if this little guy is just the happiest boy in town.  Either way, we love the shots.
