Summer is slipping away and school is creeping closer and closer, so the kids and I took off to Half Moon Bay for a little fun before life gets serious again. We have plenty of beaches that are closer than Half Moon Bay, but I just love that beach. It’s so chill and never crowded.

Miles has this imaginary world where he’s always zooming around with his hands working as an imaginary video game. (I think…it’s a little hard to interpret.)

    Sherry Smith - love these pictures… I too love the ocean.. As much as I miss the King family, I have to admit California has been a great time for them.. hugs love and joy.. mom

We just celebrated our sweet Jocelyn’s fifth birthday in the brightest, most Hello Kitty-ish and sweetest way we could, with a tea party, crafts and games. Jocelyn has many friends, but we kept this celebration small, inviting two families that we love.


The day after her party Jocelyn still had some presents to open and the celebration continued with play ice cream and a tiny Calico Critter ice cream truck.


We love you so much Jocelyn! You are such a hilarious and precious light in our life!

It was a gorgeous night to celebrate the 2015 graduating class of Los Gatos Highschool. Sam’s friends and family are so precious, it was so much fun capturing their celebration. Congratulations and best of luck to Sam and all of her friends!

    Sherry Smith - looks like you rocked the house with great pictures.. so proud of you.

I photographed Sam and her friends gathering together before they headed off to prom. There were so many stunning girls, beautiful dresses and handsome guys! Oh and the hair…so much gorgeous hair!


















Time to head off to prom and PARTY!



The music from the stretch limo, hummer and party bus was so loud, we all joined in with dancing, including mom and little sis.


Hope you all had an amazing night! Have a fabulous rest of your senior year!

It’s almost time for Sam to graduate! I’m so excited for all the wonderful things in store for this bright and beautiful young woman. Her session was filled with laughter and smiles, I can’t but be in a good mood just looking at these!
