Little Moments at Quail Hollow Ranch

Family portraits are about so much more than pictures. They are about glimpses into everyday life and the bonds that tie us to one another. Each family unit is unique, and so too are the moments that we, the photographers, are privileged enough to document. As their family grows and changes, Kyle, Maya, and Devin will be able to revisit the quiet (and the not so quiet) moments shared between them one beautiful spring morning at Quail Hollow Ranch.

I’m Ready For My Close-Up!

We had no idea what a treat we were in for when Claire contacted us looking to have some studio portraits taken for her portfolio. As soon as she got in front of the camera we knew she was a natural talent! Keep an eye out for this fresh face! She has a promising career ahead of her!

Here’s The Story…

of TWO lovely ladies, Diana and Megan! Sisters so alike you’d think they were twins! Their collective minds had the same stroke of genius when they decided to surprise their parents, Lyle and Marie, with a family photo shoot at beautiful Wilder Ranch in Santa Cruz. Diana’s husband, Noah, even came along for the fun! As you can probably tell from the photos, we had A LOT of fun!

The British are Coming! AKA: Richard and Taylor’s Wedding

Over the years we have been privileged enough to bear witness to the joining of two people whose love, respect, and friendship will bind them together in joyous matrimony. At Richard and Taylor’s wedding this August at the Pema Osel Ling Retreat Center, we were lucky enough to also celebrate the joining of two amazing families.

In one of life’s fortuitous events, Taylor, a quirky and fun loving California girl met Richard, a charming Brit, while working (not exactly together but) at the British Embassy in Washington DC. Simple geography would normally dictate that these two lovebirds would spend the rest of their lives jumping from one continent to another visiting with their respective relatives. However, it soon became very clear to us that these two families were going to spend many holidays, vacations and celebrations together in the years to come; over half of Richard and Taylor’s many wedding guests made the long trip across the pond to show their love and support! And despite the occasional good-natured jab in the ribs (“Just remember that we won Bunker Hill!”), the Yanks and the Brits embraced each other and celebrated the night away as if they had all been lifelong friends.

Happy Fourth of July!

The Fourth of July always evokes a deep nostalgia for the Sawyers. Pool parties, ice pops, barbeques, and of course fireworks, stir up memories of carefree childhood summers gone by. Fireworks in particular have an enduring ability to inspire youthful wonder and serve as reminders to us all to stop, even for a few moments, and enjoy the simple pleasures in life.
