Thailand 2015

The year 2015 marked the 10 year anniversary since we took an adventure of a lifetime to Chaing Mai, Thailand where we we married! It really was a life changing trip for both of us in many ways.

To Lassen and Back

To Lassen and Back

California is a pretty amazing state that I’m both lucky and proud to call home. When a long weekend (for our son) comes around, we jump on the chance to explore a bit and a few weeks back, we thought we’d get some late-season camping in at Lassen Volcanic National Park. Lassen is a mysterious place that had… + Read More

Goodbye Summer

Goodbye Summer

As a photographer, you have to take advantage whenever you can of great light opportunities.  The other morning, as summer continued its fruitless campaign at asserting itself as a season, clouds hung low over the valley to the east. I headed back out to a place I remembered on one of our house-hunting expeditions from the same… + Read More

From the Redwood Forest to the Olympic Peninsula

From the Redwood Forest to the Olympic Peninsula

As summer winds down and the we count the days before Alex returns to school as a third-grader on two hands, we jumped at the opportunity to hit the road.  This time, we were off to Washington and the town of Sequim on the Olympic peninsula.  Along the way, we visited two national parks and… + Read More

The Milk Carton Kids at Napa City Winery

The Milk Carton Kids are two guys – Kenneth Pattengale and Joey Ryan – and their respective guitars, a 1954 Martin 0-15 and a 1951 Gibson J45.  Their show at City Winery in Napa was utterly breathtaking and a complete immersion in timeless soulful folk music.  The pair emerged and greeted a solitary microphone and… + Read More

Our new fuzzy friends

Our new fuzzy friends

An alpaca (Vicugna pacos) is a domesticated species of South American camelid. It resembles a small llama in appearance but alpacas were not bred to be beasts of burden, rather they’ve been bred for their valuable fiber.  Part of what has always been a dream for us is to have just enough land to grow our own food and to have a few… + Read More

We still love Cotati!

We still love Cotati!

We’ve just passed the 6 month mark since moving into our new home in Cotati and we’re as certain today as we were when we first drove through this special place that we made the right choice.  Our decision to move here was based upon many factors but two major considerations were that we had a bit… + Read More

Cancer, whiskey and a razor

Cancer, whiskey and a razor

We all go through times in our lives where are just living day to day, getting things done, pushing forward. We forget to stop and smell the roses, to take time for ourselves and our family and we forget to enjoy this precious gift of life we have. Moving, for us, took a toll on… + Read More

Epic Surf Along the North Coast

Epic Surf Along the North Coast

I thought this would be a good post for today as much of the US is by now, thoroughly done with Winter and good news…Spring is just 3 weeks away!  On the same gorgeous day the Mavericks Invitational was set to be held down in Half Moon Bay, I ventured up the coast with my… + Read More

Time passes too quickly

Time passes too quickly

We’re nearing the finish line and our new website is slated to launch next week.  Whoohoo!  All the digging back through and revisiting previous work has been a really wonderful trip down memory lane and brought more than a few tears to our eyes.  As time goes on, lives change, families form, grow, and occasionally… + Read More
