Younger Family

Those of you who follow me on Instagram may have seen the drool-worthy pics I shared about the stunning, historic home I was so thrilled to get to shoot at a couple weeks back. This is what I was prepping for. There’s much about my first family session of the season that hits me every year with the same tingles and butterflies that hooked me on photography to begin with, but when it’s set against a backdrop like this? And then when you go to greet your clients at the gate and they’re dressed in the richest jewel tones complimenting perfectly everything from the pomegranate trees to the wine they poured as dusk settled in? It was both a mic drop night for me and an eager ushering in of what’s to come between now and the end of the year. Thanks to my long-time clients, the Youngers, for lighting my fire and epitomizing Holiday in Santa Barbara.
