Hi there. We're the folks behind the cameras: Carolyn is the one with long hair and Brian is the one with none. We've managed Soil + Sea together for the last 5 years. Our team is comprised of two primary photographers (ourselves), 3 associate second shooters, and one mascot (our lizard, named Davey Jones). We have one physical newborn/family studio located in Santa Cruz, but hold sessions primarily outdoors along the wild Pacific coast.


About us personally: we currently split our time between Santa Cruz, CA and Puerto Vallarta, MX. Most of the time, you can find us  tinkering away fixing up our home: a 1972 Cal Sailboat named Willow with our three scruffy little monsters... er kids. We live at anchor near the Santa Cruz Municipal Wharf and plan to spend our first winter in Mexico this year! Our dream is to sail Willow home for wedding season each year, and back down to Mexico though the cold months.
