I am loving the fact that my calendar has been so full of wonderful baby sessions lately.  I adore capturing newborns.  And if you add a dog into the mix?  I’m likely to to squeal with joy.  Angela and Victor’s session not only had both of those wonderful things, it was simply a dream to shoot.  It’s such a humbling experience to be invited into a new parents home, to experience their complete and total adoration over their new addition, and be allowed to capture those emotions so freely.

Thank you, Victor and Angela, for trusting me with your family.  And be sure to call me if Baxter needs a babysitter.

It is always a pleasure to have Kim and her family in front of my lens.  Kim and I have been friends for over 10 years now, and still, every time I see her, I’m blown away by her generous spirit, her gift of true friendship and her incredibly large heart.  I don’t know what good deed I did to be blessed with such a wonderful friend, but I’m forever thankful.

Kim’s eternally green thumb and love of all things nature brought us to the Ruth Bancroft Garden in Walnut Creek.  If you haven’t checked out this space before, please do!  It’s truly one of the most impressive dry gardens I’ve ever seen.

Thank you, Kim, for your unconditional friendship.  And for trusting my vision to capture your family as I see them.

Sometimes, I meet a client for the first the time, and I just know that the session is going to be amazing.  I can tell that we’re both on the same creative page and I have the flexibility to just shoot from the heart.  Little Ryan’s session was just like that.  It was relaxed, baby-centric and incredibly humbling to have a client just trust me and my photographic style.

Thank you Kate for spending the morning with me.  I’ll forever be envious of your perfect guest bedroom light!

Spending the day with Mona and her ridiculously adorable family was pretty much the most fun I’ve had at a session in ages.  First, Mona and I went to high school together a million years ago!  Second, she let me drag her kids onto the dirty, sandy beach for pictures and never once complained that they were getting filty. (Ahem, sorry about that, Mona!)  And third, she’s just plain fun to be around.

We spent the afternoon at one of my all time favorite East Bay destinations, Temescal Beach and I just love how the images turned out.

Mona, thank you again for being such a good sport!  Your kids are the cutest, and I’m coming to take a Bar Method class soon.

I’m so excited to finally share with you a styled shoot that just blew me away! Last month I teamed up with the fabulously talented ladies of Milk Glass Vintage Rentals and The Petal Company to create a Maleficent themed wedding day complete with the evil Maleficent, Aurora, and the impeccable Prince Charming. I’m honored to have it among the gorgeous events gracing the pages of Green Wedding Shoes today! If you’re currently planning a wedding, and HAVEN’T been over to check out the loveliness that Jen at Green Wedding Shoes shares…. Go, go go!

Having Stephanie in front of my lens is always a wonderful experience.  (You might remember her gorgeous family from one of their earlier family sessions with me.)  She’s just a truly wonderful person, and it shows in her images.  Since this is her third and final pregnancy, we decided it was the perfect opportunity to celebrate her, and this final stage before her family is complete.

Stephanie, thank you for trusting me with your family memories.  It’s always such a joy to be around you, and I’m honored to have captured so many of your memories.

I know that I’ve said this before, but I really do just love seeing my wedding couples come back for photos with their growing families.  It’s wonderful and humbling to be there when two people start their married lives together, and then to be able to see the children that bring into the world.  I’m telling you, it might make me a sap, and I don’t care. (For the record, I cry during hallmark commercials and any Sarah McLaclan dog charity ad.)

Ted and Teresa, you make a stunning family and I just love that I was able to spend a few hours with you on such a busy day!
