Morning routines with the Hoards - Espresso anyone?

Abbey and Steve are two of the coolest people I know.  Two artists/architects who support each other around every turn.  I love their point of view - how they see and explain things.  From where I stand it seems their commitment to creating a life that exemplifies beauty always starts from this point of graciousness.  Kind of like a solution to something must be elegant and kind - or benefit the most people.  Ha - words are failing me.  But to spend time with this family is to be inspired and always makes me want to make the world more beautiful.  I loved photographing their morning routine.  Otto is such a good big brother and Louie made espresso and told me jokes.  And finally I got to meet little their newest love.  What a day.

The whole family at grandma's house : Coronado family portrait

Alexis has a giant heart.  For her family portrait this year we went to grandmas house and Finley played with her cousins.  I photographed Alexis's brothers wedding years ago so I felt pretty warm inside to get to share in Christmas 2017 with baby Finley and the whole gang.  I also want to give a shout out to some rad ensembles.  It's always hard to figure out what to wear and how to be in the same "season" in San Diego and she nailed it.
