Their warm, wonderful home served as such a source of comfort and happiness (and a whole lotta design inspiration!) during that time. I came to learn that each space was designed with ‘experiences’ in mind.  Every sweet corner, and hallway, and meandering garden space had such thought behind it. Niches that encouraged conversation and creativity… and where honestly, magic would unfold on the daily.
Our guest room was a haven of sorts.  A whitewashed space, with oversized french doors that opened to the sweetest rooftop patio.  We could sit there at night with our wine in hand, looking up at the stars and listening to the coyotes in the distance.  We could sit there in the morning with our coffee in hand, as we planned our day, listening to the birds and the trickling water fountain below.  Peeking over the railing, we would look down at the children playing in the warm sun as my friend tended to her glorious, overflowing cosmos garden and her wonderful husband worked on the beginning stages of the chicken coop that they had recently designed together.  It was beautiful … and peaceful … and grounding in so many ways.

We would come home those chilly nights to a wood-burning fire, oil-lit candles dotted throughout, jazz swirling about the nooks and crannies, and a cocktail (or two) awaiting. There was homemade bread, and homegrown vegetables, and beautiful dinners that my friend had so thoughtfully prepared … walks outside down the loose-gravel, greenery lined pathway to the most handsome seating area by the fire … cigars under a starlit sky as we chatted about life and love and happenings, all with a glass of Pinot in hand.

Right before we left, I asked if I might capture a few images of their family together.  I hoped to at least leave them with some tangible reminders of the incredible love they shared.  A family whose open arms I am so grateful for and whose kindness has left such an indelible mark on my heart.” Tara, PhotographerSanta Cruz, California Motherhood Session photographed by Kent Avenue and featured on The Fount Collective_0002 Santa Cruz, California Motherhood Session photographed by Kent Avenue and featured on The Fount Collective_0003 Santa Cruz, California Motherhood Session photographed by Kent Avenue and featured on The Fount Collective_0004 Santa Cruz, California Motherhood Session photographed by Kent Avenue and featured on The Fount Collective_0005 Santa Cruz, California Motherhood Session photographed by Kent Avenue and featured on The Fount Collective_0006 Santa Cruz, California Motherhood Session photographed by Kent Avenue and featured on The Fount Collective_0007 Santa Cruz, California Motherhood Session photographed by Kent Avenue and featured on The Fount Collective_0008 Santa Cruz, California Motherhood Session photographed by Kent Avenue and featured on The Fount Collective_0009 Santa Cruz, California Motherhood Session photographed by Kent Avenue and featured on The Fount Collective_0010 Santa Cruz, California Motherhood Session photographed by Kent Avenue and featured on The Fount Collective_0011 Santa Cruz, California Motherhood Session photographed by Kent Avenue and featured on The Fount Collective_0012
