Jamie & Nick in Playa Del Rey // a los angeles beach engagement session


Jamie and Nick. These two have the sweetest origin story (they grew up around the corner from each other!) and have such a warm, steady and super fun energy about them. They live right off the bike path in Playa Del Rey, and wanted to spend their engagement session doing one of their favorite things - riding down the beach and watching the sun set.

I rented a tandem bike in a valiant attempt to ride backwards and shoot them in action (bless my partner for entertaining this idea/volunteering to steer that disaster of a ship). We managed to get some great shots, and then hopped of the bikes to meander along the water's edge and dance along the san dunes. 

They ended the session nuzzled in the cool sand as the sky grew dark.


maternity [Karintha & Todd in Marin County]

Todd & Karintha live in the quiet, secluded paradise that is Lagunitas, California. I've known them for almost seven years now, and they have become two of my strongest and most supportive friends. They've cheered me on through countless changes and have opened their home to me more times than I'll ever be able to count. They helped me discover my love for Northern California and Fairfax Scoop, and for both things I am eternally grateful.

Their baby girl is due in just under a month. I can't wait to meet this lucky little chick.
