The Fowles family has been living in California for the past few years. They had a beautiful life here, but a tragic event left these 6 gorgeous and kind kids without a dad last year. The woman you see in these pictures is just about the best example of resilience and courage, I have witnessed in my life as a photographer. She took on life for these kids, and with the help of a wonderful community around her, she kept her family strong. I personally have the greatest admiration for her, and wish I would have gotten to known her better.
After this past difficult year, she decided it was best for her and her kids to be close to her family in Utah; so they announced they are trading California for new beginnings in Utah.
As we talked about where to have their Farewell Session, Andrea told me that what her kids loved the most, was to go to beach; and that’s probably one of the things they would miss the most about California. So to Santa Cruz we went!! We started our session in the beautiful Natural Bridges Beach, and ended up at the Santa Cruz Boardwalk.
This session brought for them happiness, and a break from the craziness that moving to another state with six kids entitles. I know in my heart, these photographs will have an immeasurable value as these six kids and their mother grow and establish their lives in a new state. Thanks Fowles family for considering me for this amazing job!!! I enjoyed every minute of my time with all of you. Bye Bye A, P, L, H, M, E & L, Almaden Valley is going to miss you, oh so much. XOXO
