Ive worked in the coffee industry for the past 7 years. Coffee has taught me so many great things, but the one that is most beneficial is probably how to interact with strangers and make people feel comfortable and welcomed. I met Brendon, Justine, and baby Lenox through one of my coffee shop jobs here in San Diego. Brendon & baby Lenox would come through Friday mornings for a father-daughter coffee date. I tried so hard to get Lenox to smile every Friday, but only got those fierce, beautiful eyes staring back at me. When the Breen's asked if I would take some family photos for them, right before Lenox's 1st birthday, it was a no-brainer. This family is so sweet, and so laid back-- and BEAUTIFUL! Plus, their mid-century home that they've passionately been remodeling the past few years was a perfect start to the shoot. I guess it helps that these guys do interior design for a living! Thanks guys for inviting me into your home! You were a gift to photograph!
