When we first met the Canios, there was only two… mama and papa.
Fast forward to now and six years later, and we’ve got two little pretty little gems in the mix.

“The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity, and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness, and a deep loving concern. Beautiful people do not just happen.”
― Elisabeth Kübler-Ross

Another precious button in the world. Our swaddling skills are really exceptional by now 😉

It’s always a joy seeing these two boys for their annual portraits. Big brother, Aidan, is a natural model. Check out some of the poses he’s been throwing down each year!

maui | yvette + don

Of all places, we’re in luscious Maui this week for this sweet couple’s wedding today 🙂
We had some time with the couple the other day to explore some of this beautiful island with them and capture some snaps.

Suspenders and king crowns are the things that delight today.

travel | joshua trees

There’s something liberating about being on the road. Maybe it’s the thrill of discovering a new dystopia. And so we travel south, where we discover the strange branching formations of the Joshua Tree, with it’s twists and turns. Each tree is like an expression of individuality within the soul. A soul always in the process of coming to be, trying to achieve a new orientation. We are fascinated.

engagement | chenlu + don

A room is not a room without natural light, and in this case, there is room with a natural light of love for ChenLu and Don. These two share a love for architecture and actually met at work in their architecture firm. To make their session extra special, they wanted to revisit the firm they used to work at to recreate some of the scenes of their everyday interactions at work that eventually led them to fall in love.

portrait | antoinette + brian

There never seems like there’s never enough time and that’s probably because it flies by so quickly. Antoinette and Brian reached out to us recently to do their five year anniversary portraits and it’s crazy because we feel like we just shot their wedding a few months ago.
