There is something so special about a first time momma to be.  There is a tangible excitement and anticipation that just can’t be described in words, but I’m so inspired by it.  And I just plain love baby bellies.  Especially when they’re wrapped in lace.  Maternity sessions truly are one of my favorites to shoot!

Carolyn and her husband are expecting a little girl any minute now, so I wanted to be sure and share their sweet session before their new bundle makes her debut.  Thank you both for letting me come hang out in your home for a few hours.  I can’t wait to meet your baby girl!

I adore Sia.  Like, fully girl crush, want to be part of her family, like Sia.  She’s just plain rad.  (She’s also an uber talented photographer!) And spending an afternoon with her gorgeous family was pretty much the most fun I’ve had in a while.  Anyone who can calmly let her kids run through the dirt, throw pine needles in the air and just generally be kids during a photo session rocks my world. It’s an amazing freedom to photograph a family in the middle of their own unique and beautiful chaos.

Thank you Sia, for being you, and trusting my vision so completely.

It was an incredible honor to be able to capture Brooke and Jerry on their wedding day.  Brooke is an incredibly talented jewelry designer (She designed and created their wedding rings!), and I just knew that her wedding would be nothing short of spectacular.  It was.  Between Brooke’s amazing eye for details (Hello eclectic table tops and organic florals!), and Jerry’s overwhelmingly obvious joy at marrying his sweetheart, this wedding was truly a wonderful experience.

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

It’s that time of year again – Holiday photo time!

2014 Mini Sessions include:
-Up to 20 minutes of shooting time
-10 high resolution images for you to print and share
-An online gallery for friends and family to view

All for $295

WHEN
Saturday, November 1st
Sunday, November 2nd

I was incredibly honored earlier this month to have my work featured on the fabulous The Little Umbrella blog!  (It’s really one of my all time favorite baby, child, and family blogs!)  If you haven’t checked out the lovely work that graces their pages, please do yourself a favor and head on over to see newborn inspiration, nursery ideas and just generally lovely content.

It has been the season of babies for me lately and I couldn’t love it more.  There is something about the cuddles, the adorable skin folds and the fresh baby smell that just melts my heart.  Add in Baby James’s adorable nursery, and it makes for an ideal session!

Thank you Julie for inviting me into your lovely home and trusting me with your family.

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.
