This shoot was full of happy-sad moments. Some of our best friends, Marina + Jon are moving up north to Oxnard California, where Jon accepted a firefighting job. A few years ago, when we were first married, we were neighbors on the Balboa Penninsula. We lived in the front beach house, and they lived in the tiniest (but most charming) studio in the back. They asked us to come photograph their abode before the first of boxes was packed. They wanted to remember their life in Newport - what it was like to have morning coffee on their front porch and what a simple stroll on the beach felt like. We were so happy to be able to capture those memories for them.. At times, they felt like this...

Jon + Marina, we couldn't feel more honored to have called you friends and neighbors. We know the road ahead is scary & unknown, but as you embark on this new season in life, we hope you remember how truly loved you are.  May life in Oxnard bring you closer to God and each other...you will be missed!!
