Any couple that brings wine and chocolate to their session with me basically wins a spot in my heart for life.  Just saying!

When Sarah and John told me that they wanted an engagement session that highlighted their love of both the outdoors and wine, I knew just the spot.  The California Redwoods in Oakland are just majestic enough to highlight this gorgeous couple. (I have a serious love affair with shooting here!)  And with plenty of cozy spots to throw down a blanket and (Fully stocked!), picnic basket with their favorite bottle of wine, it truly was perfect.  Don’t you think?

It was such an amazing pleasure to spend an afternoon with two people who make each other so obviously happy.  I can’t wait until their wedding day!  Sarah’s impeccable style and attention to detail basically blew me away, so I can only imagine what fun awaits me on their big day.

Sarah and John, thank you for making my job so much fun. And thank you, again for the amazing chocolates!

I am incredibly thrilled and honored to see my images of the incredibly lovely Jessica Dixon grace the pages of the March/April edition of Click Magazine! If you have an interest in photography (Either as a trade or hobby!), I strongly encourage you to grab a copy of this lovely magazine.  The pages are chalk full of ideas, inspiration, and education.  I’m flattered to be included!

Spending the day shooting the fabulous face behind The Petal Company was just plain fun.  I “met” Jessica on Instagram, and just knew that we had to meet in person!  Her energy and spirit are infectious! And her flower crowns?  Unbelievable!  (You can see one of her crowns in this maternity shoot!)  If only I was getting married again.  Thank you Jessica for letting me hang out around the studio for a day.  I wish I had your touch with flowers!

I have such a love for newborn sessions, and I’m so grateful that I’ve had the ability to capture so many recently!  There is so much about newborn lifestyle photography that really moves me.  This glimpse into a time of life that is so fleeting is precious.  These are memories that that might slip right through our grasp if they aren’t documented.

I love being able to capture the cute squishy baby you are just getting to know, but also the joy and love that new parents exude in those early days.  I just love being a part of it.  And any chance to squeeze those adorable nuggets is fine by me.

Amy and Andrew, thank you for allowing me to spend the morning with you.

A few months ago, I had the pleasure of photographing Jennifer and her sweet family.  The session took place right at the brink of sunset  in the hills East of San Francisco, and the girls ran wild through the tall grass and trees.  I’m sure to Jennifer, a photographer herself, this particular session seemed like an exercise in chaos.  And to be completely honest, it was.  I’m so grateful to Jennifer for trusting my vision and letting her twins be as true to themselves as possible.  This study in chaos is her reality, and there is nothing more meaningful than capturing the truth. This session is everything I love about lifestyle and documentary photography.

Thank you Jennifer for trusting me so completely.

It was such a pleasure getting to know Colleen and Matt before their wedding day.  They were so joyful and truly wanted to get to know me.  Not just as their wedding photographer, but as a person.  And while that may seem like a simple thing, it was an incredibly flattering gesture, and something I still think about… even 3 months after their wedding!  I’m convinced that Colleen’s day is filled with similar small gestures that she has for those around her that make up the wonderful person that she is!

Thank you both for trusting me to capture your elegant wedding day.  I’m honored and wish you nothing but the best.

Rhea’s maternity session was simply a wonderful.  I feel so lucky to have the opportunity to work with incredibly talented and artistic women!  (Plus, since Rhea works in fashion, her closet was the stuff of dreams!)  Isn’t she cute?

I’ve mentioned before how much I love pregnant women and they’re gorgeous bellies, but add in an adorable Boston Terrier and a stroll on Baker Beach, and I’m smitten.  Thank you Rhea, for welcoming me into your amazing home. I can’t wait to meet your sweet little baby!

I feel like I owe all of my wonderful families and clients a heartfelt thank you for making my 2014 year a smashing success.  Today is dedicated you.  It’s simply impossible to narrow down all of my favorite images from the year, so these are just a sampling of what inspired me.

I hope you’ve enjoyed this series as much as I have. I truly can’t wait to see what 2015 has in store!
