family photojournalism :: the debonis

for those who have the wisdom and presence to grasp it, every moment is a holy moment. and that's how life is at the deboni's home. from the moment i walked in the door, i could sense a joyful sacredness.

this family - jake, jess, and their three sweet children - savors life like the ripe raspberries and mulberries they picked and ate during our session. they grow their own food, they read rich books, they live simply, they shower one another with affection, and they are quick to laughter and forgiveness. also, they make a mean cup of cold brew. 

i could have happily stayed all day. 

and because words don't seem really adequate, i'll leave you with the pictures now. and there are many.
