This photo session was filled with much of my own personal joy of having been a witness to the evolution of this family. I met these two lovely people, the parents featured here, when I was touring with Ragtime. He played Houdini and she was Evelyn Nesbit. I watched their relationship begin, grow, and then witnessed their marriage to one another. Now they have 3 fantastic children and I was elated to capture a day with them all at the Santa Monica Pier.
