This church is in between two of the major districts of Oak Park, has beautiful spring flowers and was an awfully pretty backdrop for their family and maternity photos!

On the second day of Liam’s graduation weekend we were lucky enough to have the clouds part for a gloriously sunny day. I gather that that sort of thing is pretty rare on the northern California coast. At Liam’s request we went to check out Fern Canyon, which is a gorgeous watershed very close to […]

In mid-May family members from across the west coast made the journey up to Humboldt State University in Arcata, CA to celebrate, and I got to take the graduation photos! Congratulations for graduating, and for all your hard work! So, short, ridiculous story time: unusual late-season rain was predicted for this weekend. I knew this. […]
