I used to work with Stacey years ago before I became a teacher and photographer. We would talk about our random high school connections we had no idea about until we met in San Francisco and how our cross country days actually carried into our adult running passion as we both ran for our company team for this crazy 200-mile relay that spanned from Napa down to Monterey. I'm not sure what I was thinking when she talked me into it, but she has a way of convincing people they can handle such pain.
And then we both went on to have families, and luckily for me, she asked me to capture her beautiful family in one of the prettiest cities I know - San Francisco. These folks are lucky to call it their home. Her son reminds me so much of my own with his love for his dump truck and boundless energy and curiosity - oh, and of course his love for his Thomas the Train boots. I was smitten with their baby daughter! Despite how cold it was she managed to be chill (get it??) the whole session and even gave me some smiles. The best!
Oh, hi there, cutie!
Boys and their dump trucks - nothing makes them happier.
