. . . and the next week they packed up everything they own and left the beach for a year’s adventure in a landlocked state. Will little Ollie remember the ocean when they come back? The plan is to return, but, life … so … will they? I love that Matt and Stephanie had the foresight to do these photos. Could what we made in these 30 minutes go down forever as the only tangible footprint of their life together wne home meant Santa Barbara? Family photography as preservation of time and place at its most poignant; always stopping me in my tracks.
