Pritchett Family // Oakland, California

I met Ariana serendipitously earlier this year, and I sensed right away that we were kindred spirits. She is an amazing and loving mother to her kids, but she refuses to let go of her own needs and desires. She allows herself to be present in the deeper parts of her soul. She pushes through feelings of guilt that come with the need to indulge in passions and be selfish – to retain a sense of self, to nurture the self – after having kids. 

Her company Flight Design did my branding last summer, and it was one of the best investments I’ve made since starting out. Now we get together to talk about important things in life… ocean waves, dark matter, tattoos, moon phases, etc. It was such an honor to spend time with her family, documenting some of their beautiful life together.
