Martinich Family, Santa Barbara Tea Fire victims

A while back, Tim and I offered a free portrait session to any family who lost their home and/or photos in the Santa Barbara Tea Fire. We really wanted to give back to people who lost everything and the best way we knew how was with our photography.

The Martinich’s were one of those families and although we can never replace the pictures they lost, we were stoked to get them some new ones to display. Here are my favorite images from their session.

By the way, our offer still stands… anyone who lost their home/pictures in the Tea Fire or the Jesusita Fire, we would be honored to take your family pictures for free.
