Every summer I take the boys to Oregon to spend time at my folks. I love and need this time with them. They get to run around in fields, drive  go – carts, swim and listen to bullfrogs. My mom is an excellent frog catcher. My youngest has a quick eye to spot them. Oh […]

These two got married! I am not a wedding photographer, but when they told me the venue – how could I say no? City Hall in San Francisco is just gorgeous. The perfect backdrop for this beautiful bride and her groom. Thank you so much B+M for asking me to be a part of such […]

When two adorable sisters hop out of the car to say hello, and the oldest carries over a bag letting you know that it is holding their accessories. From one girl to another, I knew we were going to hit it off. Thank goodness big sister had no problems letting me know what shots we […]

Putting this post together was a little harder than I anticipated. Maybe that’s why the images have been sitting on my camera for the past two months. I lost my dad in April, my boys – they lost their grandpa.  I think about him everyday, and we all miss him more than I thought even […]

I might have done a happy dance as this gorgeous family got out of their car. I mean, sparkly twirly dresses and lots of pink. Mom was worried she may have over done it on the outfits, but really- is there such a thing? The girls were a little shy to begin with, but by […]

I love when meeting a family for the first time you think to yourself, “we would totally be friends!” That’s how I felt within 5 minutes with this beautiful and fun family of 3. LOVED how they were styled, it was a perfect afternoon walking around and picking wild flowers.

Before getting back into the routine of school and work, a visit to the beach was a must. I love to pack up the car, load the boys in and just head over the hills towards the ocean. We are lucky to live so close. A day spent in the sun surrounded by the ocean […]

A resolution of mine for the new year would be a better blogger! I get to meet and photograph some seriously beautiful families. Spend time with them and capture moments like what it looks like when their husbands look at them. Or how their child’s eyes light up when you tell them a funny story […]

Little girls in holiday dresses. This just gets me every time! I loved how mom styled her family, pretty little dresses and boots – perfect! Both girls were fun, sweet and sassy and the youngest quite possibly ate her weight in raisins throughout our time together -ha! It’s always such a treat to get the […]

I had big plans to take an image each day for something I am thankful for. An image was not taken everyday, but the thought was certainly there. November was an insanely busy month, but each time I was out photographing families I was reminded by how much beauty surrounds us everyday. Something as simple […]
