Nicole contacted me via email to try to schedule a last minute shoot. They were having an annual family vacation with her partner’s family, from all over the country. Nicole, her partner Ryan & their son, Audon (I have no clue if I’m spelling that right–sorry!) are from San Francisco, Ryan’s parents (Mark & Nancy) were out from Chicago, his brother Joel his family (wife Melissa & daughter Ren) were here from DC, and his Aunt (Mom’s sister Jeannie) & her partner were here from St. Louis. Nicole & Ryan’s son was about to celebrate his 1st birthday, and it was almost Nancy’s birthday too–so they decided to put the shoot together as a last minute gift to her, and to commemorate the occasion.
The first photo is the gorgeous house they rented in Sebastopol. Seriously y’all, this is like my dream home. Wrap-around porch, totally re-done kitchen, pond, property, long driveway, pool & hot tub…seriously. It looks like something plucked straight out of the south or mid-west, and I just love it. We had so many options as far as spots to use on the property, and mixed it up a little here and there.
I’m so glad to have met you all! Thanks for getting in touch, I’m happy we were able to squeeze you guys in. Here are some of the shots we got!
