So you know how parents of young children keep a book on their first year of life? Each month, they note the things that baby is loving and/or hating and/or learning that month.

As it turns out, if you lack discipline, it’s hard to be a good blogger but regardless, I’ve always enjoyed writing (even college papers! I do not lie. Actually really truly loved it.), so my plan is to include a small writing snippet before each photo blog post. I’ll try to keep it to relevant thoughts.
let’s go to the dunes /// chelsea + nico
SAND DUNES. That’s almost all I have to say. If you’re looking for a unique location for your photos – family photos, wedding photos, engagement photos, maternity photos, whatever! – the sand dunes in Pismo are THE PLACE to go.
Ellie waited so patiently during the six weeks between Mina’s birthday and April 1 for her turn to be IT. Quarantine notwithstanding, we did not disappoint her. I had grand dreams of making the cutest ice cream stand, and it executed good enough for the party, but really, the girls most enjoyed playing with pvc […]
I told my husband this year it’s a good thing he married me quick, or the next generation would have beat him to this next stage! Stephanie is my husband’s oldest (and first!) niece, and I met Stephanie through church (as her youth group leader) before I ever knew Daniel existed. She suggested I date […]
Thank you for 2016. This was the year I took the leap from working for someone to working for myself. The year photography took the spotlight instead of “side job” title. The year I first shot film – and bought a film camera! The year I got to have my first mentoring session – and with […]
Last week we had a big shop party for Daniel’s 30th birthday. I like to be totally prepared, so after three days of cleaning, baking, decorating and general prep-ment, I was running between the shop and the house (picture the headless chicken), praying I’d actually have time to do my hair before everyone showed up. (Can […]
It’s 12:30am and I’m up and working on photos – which is normal. I think any photographer will tell you that. But tonight’s different because 1) Daniel is up with me and 2) WE CAN’T STOP WATCHING THE BLACKLIST (I mean Netflix keeps autoplaying the next episode. What are we supposed to do?). This show […]
Putting together a good outfit is getting harder with age. At least that’s what’s happening to me. I was fairly confident in my sense of style in high school – because clearly, choosing weather to wear a white or blue monogrammed polo with my grey or plaid pleated skirt was more of a science than art. […]
When I was in high school, I was quite sure I wasn’t going to get married or have kids. Getting married was something people did because they felt like they should as a natural “next step” in life – plus I was fairly convinced they were just bored being single. And kids? Again – the […]
After a pretty solid 10 days of fog and moisture and cold toes, I feel that 1, I need a trip to the beach and the sun and 2, this is perfect weather to post this wintery session. So 1, we booked a trip to Thailand for March (SUN BEACH SUN!) and 2, meet Angela […]
I hate taking down the tree. Don’t get me wrong – about this time of January, I start feeling like the tree is making my house Not Clean or something but taking it down seems to signify the end of something great, and the start of the dreary wait until summer. I really shouldn’t complain because I […]
Fun fact: This family’s Christmas cards were one of my top 5 favorite this year. For sure. I may be part of a big family since our March wedding, but that doesn’t mean I still don’t view crowd management and coordination for big family Christmas photos as a feat to be respected. Blonde hair, klompen…and […]
