“I’m not quite sure where the key is…”

 

Less than 10 minutes after meeting Leo, he had my hands handcuffed behind my back, only to explain he couldn’t remember where he had put the keys. There is nothing I love more than a mischievous kid hiding behind a cute smile.

 

In 2005, the Navy moved my family up to Bremerton, Washington from San Diego, California. One of the first things we searched for every time we moved was a piano teacher. Without a doubt, Chris Rogers was one of the best piano teachers in my 10 years of playing!

 

After 16 months, the Navy moved us once again. This time to Camp Lejeune in North Carolina, meaning we would miss Chris and Ruth’s wedding by just a few months. Seven years and two children later, I had the absolute pleasure of photographing their stunning family at Manchester State Park in Port Orchard, Washington.

 

…and the handcuffs came off just in time to pick fresh blueberries and raspberries from their garden!

“Let’s go to Dunkin Donuts!”

 

I was sitting at my computer, as I had been for the past 48 hours it seemed, when Drew and Clay came running through the door. “Let’s go to Dunkin Donuts!” “Want to take pictures at the beach?” “Let’s do something!” Each time my answer was the same, “I can’t, I have to get work done.”

 

The next day, we went through the same thing. “Let’s go to the beach!” Again my answer was that I couldn’t. There was too much work to do.

 

Last night, Drew came through my office door at midnight and said, “Come on, let’s go to Dunkin Donuts! Let’s make summer memories. You’re always working and you’re the one that says we should do these things.” Then he left the room. Thinking about what he said, I realized work was coming first all too often. Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE my job – but I love it so much that, all too often, family and friends were getting pushed aside.

 

Finishing up the current project I was working on, I grabbed a hat and threw on a pair of zorries. At 1am, we found ourselves eating the freshest donuts we’ve ever had outside the Cape Carteret Dunkin Donuts.

 

Of course, the camera came along so we could document our summer memories. Just like good brothers do, they had me laughing the entire time,

 

“You’re still working.” “You should have told us we were going to have a photo shoot.” “Thumbs up for a good time!”

22 things I learned in 22 years and The struggle, acceptance, and looking to the future | GUAM

Hero by Enrique Iglesias is playing as I organize Garrett + Makayla’s Montage Restort session in Laguna Beach, California. For a moment, I got carried away… jumping out of the computer chair, I started singing along as if I were in love myself.

 

Garrett and Makayla grew up next door to each other. Towards the end of high school, they were inseparable and he asked her to be his girlfriend. In August, they’ll be coming up on their 3rd year anniversary together. The way he makes her laugh, it’s as if they stepped right out of a Nicholas Sparks novel.

 

I said it while visiting San Diego back in 2012 and I’ll say it again, California is a dreamy place to fall in love.

Jackie and Sarah have been best friends since they were little girls. When the military moved Sarah’s family to Guam – where I met her in 2011 – they proved that nothing, not even thousands of miles, could break the bond of friendship.

the point on emerald isle | WAKEFIELD FAMILY and The Sentence That Took Two Hours To Write

 

The winding road to Mt. Woodson Golf Course in Ramona, California felt like driving through a salted pretzel or a salted carmel cake pop. The rolling hills were covered in white rocks, so naturally my imagination went wild as I drove around curves and up the mountain.

 

When my family moved to San Diego back in 2004, the Dollicks were one of the first families we met. At that time, there was just the parents and six kids. Within the past 10 years three of them have gotten married and half of the family has moved up to Alaska – remember Andrew + Jamie’s Alaska engagement session? They live in one of the most amazing destinations anyone could live!

 

While in San Diego the beginning of July, I had the absolute privilege of photographing the entire Dollick family at Mt. Woodson Golf Course. Once again, I was reminded just how much fun it is to grow up with lots of siblings. The laughter, having so many people in every direction, and the love that only family can provide.

 

Check out this stunning family full of gorgeous blonde locks.
