Bentley Family // At Home in Berkeley, California

It rained all morning. The house smelled like eggs and bacon cooking on the stove. Sounds of laughter and conversation mixed with rain hitting the windows. Occasional cries and consoling of bumped heads, followed by quiet cuddles. I adore this family and loved spending time with them, talking life and seeing the way they love each other. Emily is the creative genius behind Shotgun Floral Studio and I’ve long admired her work, so when she asked me to photograph her family, I was beyond excited. When I got there, laundry was hanging in the kitchen, train tracks covered the floor, and it was the most imperfectly perfect dream of a sunday morning.
