17 Hours : A Photo Story From Panama to California

7am Pick Up – Casco Viejo, Panama


Nobody’s Turning Back Now


Wave goodbye to El Arco Chato, Joaquin


Passing Folks and Blurry Colors


Central America, Car Seat Not Always Required


Waiting for Take Off


Empty Middle Seat : Happy Baby, Happy Parents


Layover Snacks


I see California


Clear Skies and A Clear Coast


Bay Bridge View of The City


Smell That Air Joaquin? That’s Summer In Napa


It’s 8pm and The Sun Is Still Kissing the Vines


So Many Ladies, One Lucky Baby


Sweet Lola, Watching All the Fuss


Break Out the Blocks, We’re Home


Sparkling Rose, Wild Horse Valley


Yes, This Is Precisely What I’m Always Talking About


Wearing Sweaters Only Because We Can
