the karas family | camden turns one!

I’ve never met a cuter toe-head than little Camden. To celebrate his very first birthday, we trekked to the beach for some family photos with his lovely parents and grandparents, and it was, obviously, pretty dang fun.

sweet baby wyatt.

Remember Carrie and Jud, a.k.a. the most adorable parents-to-be of all time? Welp, a few months ago (and quite a bit earlier than expected!), they welcomed sweet Wyatt Joseph. As fate would have it, their need for some of their first family portraits perfectly coincided with my latest trip home, so they gave me the unique privilege of meeting the little guy and capturing the three of them at this incredibly special time.

I’ve always loved children and babies, and meeting Wyatt reaffirmed this ten times over. He is cutest, his parents are the cutest, and his brother, Parker the Pooch, is the cutest, too. This shoot was one of my most fulfilling to date!

peace out open house: seidl family christmas party.

my mom does THE BEST job at christmas.  she brings out her famous pink tree and all of its children (scroll down to see what i mean), and our house becomes a sparkly, festive winter wonderland.

this year, my parents went all out and threw a party for some of our family friends on the island.  here are some of the highlights of the first ever “peace out open house.”
