Some people were leaving back to their cars just as we were arriving.

We had enough time to have the beach nearly to ourselves for an hour before the area was cleared, then set off running for shelter as we waited for the thunderstorm to pass.  The lake was beautiful, cool and refreshing.  Sofia and I swam together as Erick quietly observed from a distance, we wandered far enough into the water to float and watched as airplanes passed overhead.  I hope someday we build our home near the water, I don't think my heart could take it if I were very far away.

This week leaves me limited time for personal photos as I am working very hard on finishing up a few client shoots and preparing for another wedding over the weekend.  I'll be happy when the long nights are over and my files are happily packaged and on their way.

    Love, Jazmyn

  2. such lovely photos. the colouring in the top one in particular is so soft and beautiful. we live by the coast. i could never be far away either. i find it keeps me balanced. it's a great lifestyle.

  3. I love what was captured here though, storm and all, the raw beauty of your photos I will never get tired of that is for sure. I like the feather by your feet too!

  4. You can fly me to the states when ever you want!

Easter Weekend

Hello! Happy mid-week to you. This is the roll of photos we shot over our Easter weekend, and oh what a wonderful weekend it was. It was so nice to have family here to visit - even if the weather was cooler than we anticipated! We visited the redwoods in Felton, ate vegetarian burritos, went to the epic shoreside in Montara, and the brewing company in Half Moon Bay. Our hearts are full and our home is feeling quite empty now ;)

As a side note, I've found a renewed love with film. This is a post for another time, but it bears mentioning here! There has been much on my mind re: photography, and hopefully this will be the space I can share that.

For the curious, all the above were shot on a Nikon FM10 with Fuji Superia 400 speed film.

The Long And Short Of It

Hi, friends. How was your weekend? After having non-stop rain for nearly a month, we finally received a short break in the El Niño weather to head to the coast. Even though it's not in our backyard, I still feel like twenty miles to the beach is a good compromise. It really is lovely here and it makes me happy to see the girls so at home in the sea.

This week we are gearing up for Easter and some very special visitors -- my Mama and my sister! It will be the first time Mom has seen our new home or visited the Bay Area, so to say we are excited would be an understatement. We cannot wait. I've even kept it as a surprise from the girls, so I'm sure the look on their faces alone when they see Grammie and their Auntie will be the highlight of the whole trip.

What about you? Any special Easter plans or crafting?

We made some hot crossed buns for the first time last year, and I'm hoping I can bake a little something special this year too. We're going to try this recipe a…

Hi friends. I wanted to take a minute to catch up together and fill you in on a few new things! To anyone new to our space, thank you for visiting and I'm glad you're here. You may have noticed the look around the blog has been much simpler and clean. It's something I'm trying to do not only in just the blog, but with my life itself... a bit of a spring-cleaning, if you will. My Facebook feed filled with "friends" I haven't talked to in ages, a twitter name that no one could pronounce or understand, blog columns and categories I couldn't keep up with, even pressure to post when I know I should just be enjoying my time with my family. The list is seeming never-ending for a lot of us out there, and I just wanted to be honest and say that I too have gotten "stuck" one time or another, and here's a few things I did to streamline my way out of it:

• Keep as many things cons…
