Thailand 2015

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. It was the first time either have us had ever gone to South East Asia, where everything from the… + 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

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

Digging through the vaults

Digging through the vaults

When you wake up on New Year’s day, no matter how impervious to may feel to nostalgia…you probably fall victim, even if only for a few thoughts on days gone by.  Last year was a very busy year for us and we are just now re-establishing our bearings.  We made one of the most difficult… + Read More

Time to take a breath

Time to take a breath

Late last week – after months of house-hunting as a full time job – we finally moved into our new home in lovely Cotati, CA (neighbors with Petaluma for those unfamiliar with Cotati).  I’m always taking photos…of something or another.  I’m often told I need to meditate more – to help clear and re-center my… + Read More

The Viera Family

The Viera Family

I have been waiting to release these, but I am feeling a lot of love for my family today so I had to put them up! We have only had a family portrait done a handful of times (if that). Mostly because we both feel much more comfortable behind the camera than in front of… + Read More

Stop and smell the roses

Stop and smell the roses

A week doesn’t have to be easy for it to leave a lasting impression.  It sometimes takes a difficult week to force you to stop and smell the roses, re-define what’s really important, and count your blessings. Jaime’s father was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease early last year and has decided to undergo brain surgery  to… + Read More

Happy Anniversary to My Best Friend

Happy Anniversary to My Best Friend

On this day in 2005, on the outskirts of Chiang Mai, Thailand, Jaime and I made our love for each other official.  8 years on and…what an amazing journey it has been. Shortly after we made our commitment to each other, we bought a lovely home in Dunedin, New Zealand and began Viera Photographics.  Not… + Read More

Bad Boy Buckley

Bad Boy Buckley

Our Buckley has a hard time with self-control when it comes to anything resembling a chew-toy and the victim this time, Piglet the Cat.  Piglet was knitted for us by a dear friend as a gift for our son just after he was born.  So as I’m sure you can imagine, it was traumatic to… + Read More
