Cassandra, Zoe & Sabine

This vivacious and adventurous family has been with me for over 8 years now.  I first met them when the twins were wee little babies.  Our first shoot was complete pandemonium and I couldn't help but completely fall in love with Jolene and Peter's fantastic "survival tactics" approach to parenting what with a toddler and newborn twins underfoot.  They were true partners in crime and I was then, as I am now, in awe of their relationship - both with each other and with their kids.   Jolene really "gets" her girls and honors their unique and individual personalities.  I love that about her and it has allowed me to get to really know them over the years.  They are so open and true with me.  There's no layers of the onion to peel away anymore.  This is one of the many advantages of longevity with families over the past decade that I've been doing this and I'm eternally grateful for that honor and privilege.  It helps create that magic I talk about all the time. Jolene and I are committed to coming up with fun, exciting new locations every year.   I'm always up for the adventure with them and this year brought us to Lands End and the Sutro Baths in San Francisco.  We were blessed with a gorgeous - albeit CRAZY windy - day and even though little Sabine had a case of croup, she powered through it like a trooper!    My love for this family is hopefully completely apparent as you scroll through these images.  They hold a special place in my heart.   Jolene & Peter, here's to another successful year under our collective belts!  Can't wait for next year!! xoxo
