JACOBSEN MOTHER/CHILD || Goleta, CA || I was introduced to Marge by my sister, Corey. Those two, both photographers, had connected over Instagram and planned to meet in person and take pictures one day while they both were visiting Santa Barbara. I was invited to their shoot, and Marge and I hit it off as well. Based out of Portland, Oregon but with roots here, she booked me for this session on a return visit months later. To use 'humbling' to describe shooting a photographer whose work you admire wouldn't just be an understatement, but inaccurate. Because it's that and so much more. This opportunity (as did this one) filled me with the perfect mix of excitement, anxiety and adrenaline I feel served to help me create some of my favorite work to date.
