I had the photographer's dream come true recently when I photographed these parents to be. Bailey and Jaleel found this SWEET spot in the Santa Cruz mountains, close to where they live. They both knew instantly they wanted it to be the backdrop for their maternity session. When I arrived and met them in person I could tell that their warm and genuine personalities would not only make for a really fun session, but also really great images (oh yeah, and great future parents as well). I am so grateful to have played a part in remembering this precious time in their lives.
The Ocean Riders of Marin is a sustainably run, community based, horse boarding facility based on the Southern Marin coast. I have had the pleasure of sponsoring Flame (an older and VERY sweet mannered Arabian horse). On Saturday, September 10th, 2016 they will host their Fall Fundraiser with hopes of building a covered arena as well as helping to expand their community outreach programs. If you have the date free: click here to buy tickets (before it sells out!). I offered my photography services to them this last Wednesday to help promote their fundraiser on social media. My hope was to document even a small fraction of the love and community of this place. To learn more about this organization: click here!
