Bonds of Time // A family beach session in Pacific City Oregon

I cannot put into words what it means to me when other photographers ask that I document their important story for all time.  As photographers we know how important it is to choose the right person to document the images that will be handed down through the generations.  When a photographer places such a responsibility and trust in me I... again, no words. This session was no different but truly an honor as I got to know Genn by phone and immediately we 'clicked' {get it... heeehee}.   

She and her hubby are both photographers of love and you can tell they are still in love themselves!
She is a wife, a mom, a believer and a girl with a passion for all that she has on her chosen plate.  We instantly connected as our hearts beat for the same things.  
What a joy it was to get to hear their story of love, of faithfulness and passion for leaving a legacy for their children not just by words but by their actions.  
Shortly before this trip to the coast, Mike has been on a mission trip.  Upon his return the family had a few big events so this time on the coast was really of special importance.  It was a time to stop and connect with each other and their children- who, I must say, showcase what a tremendous job Mike and Genn are doing of raising them.  
They all were so polite and fun to be with.  Josh and I took our time with each child separately giving them our full attention and showering them with corny jokes.... hey- whatever works! ;)
My only wish for this session would have been that the winds would die down.  But being the Oregon Coast we never know what is in store.  I was thankful that Mike and Genn were just relaxed and enjoyed their time together- wind and all!  And the kiddos.... What troopers!!!  
Mike, Genn and kiddos, thank you SO MUCH, from the bottom of my heart for relaxing, having fun and goofing off with Josh and I.  We had such a great time with each of you and hope that next time you are back you would let us know so that we all can build a sandcastle together!! 
xoxo Xiomara


  1. Oh Xiomara ... there are no words for this incredible gift you have given us. My heart is exploding! Thank you thank you thank you!!

  2. It's amazing! Beach is awesome. Weather is perfect. Great pictures Great memories!

  3. Genn, thank YOU for trusting me with these important memories. So blessed to bless you!!!

  4. I feel comparing black and white photography with it's movie counterpart is similar to assessing apples with grapefruits. They only usually are not exactly the same thing in look and feel. besocial I mentioned this at length partly 1 of this collection. When speaking to photographer Hellen Truck Meene she explain motion picture as experiencing "secret". Now I'm unclear precisely what the techical expression for magic is but creatively I realize just what Hellen means.

  8. Hi there! I know this is kinda off topic nevertheless I’d figured I’d ask. Would you be interested in trading links or maybe guest writing a blog article or vice-versa? My website discusses a lot of the same subjects as yours and I believe we could greatly benefit from each other. If you might be interested feel free to send me an e-mail. I look forward to hearing from you! Superb blog by the way!
