Jem Tripper is a native Californian currently living in beautiful Northern California. She works from home as a probate paralegal with her husband Ross and her two children: five-year-old son Phoenix and one-year-old Soleil.

Cleo and Daniel Lebron are a husband/wife photography team residing in Puerto Rico.
