Santa Cruz Documentary Family Session | The Hansen Family

The Hansen Family year four. I’ve been so lucky over the years to photograph the Hansen Family, since Ellery’s newborn days to her preschool days, plus a new little sister now and a move back to Santa Cruz, this wonderful crew really gets the importance of documenting these precious ordinary moments in life. Katie and I have been friends since middle school, when we’d ride our cruiser bikes just about everywhere, making documenting a day in their life that much more special. These days they are a family of four, with the arrival of sweet Clover, and I absolutely love being able to tell a bit of their story each year, while seeing them grow and transform, they are an amazing family. Katie and Daniel are wonderful parents to their stunning and wild little girls, I am constantly in awe of their calm nature no matter the storm around them coupled with their extraordinarily thoughtful approach to parenting, I learn something new every time I photograph them. Thank you to this beautiful family for entrusting me to document these precious moments in life, I love y’all!
