kristin + ruben

I got to spend the afternoon in the east oakland home of the talented kristin arzt & ruben diaz. I have been wanting to do more in home sessions and I am pretty excited how they are coming together. I love how comfortable people are in their own homes and the realness of feeling and emotion that comes out in the images with that comfort. these two are crazy talented! ruben is a kind hearted very talented musician who also is as crafty as his sweet lady kristin who makes the most beautiful quilts!  check them out -- (  after spending time in their home chatting and drinking shots of mezcal (that brought back from their recent trip to mexico) we walked over to a little carnival that was going on down the street and somehow they talked me into riding a few rides, haha. thanks guys for welcoming me into your home!
