I love having two beautiful nephews, and I LOVE cousins! Look at this cutie grow:
These were all shot on film. And I’m sharing the best shot I got of Symphony holding her baby cousin, just to prove that I, too, cannot get my kid to look at the camera and smile most of the time!
Catherine and Nic were married at the Holly Farm in Carmel Valley, which is a wonderful, beautiful, accommodating venue. These two love each other so fiercely, and their whole community adores them too!

Sweet, beautiful, joyful Rosie was in the area from the E.U. (with her parents) to visit family earlier this summer, and I had the pleasure of photographing them all. Her parents requested that I not use their photos on my blog, but agreed that baby Rose was too cute not to share! I think this age, in terms of infancy, is just about the BEST. Learning to sit up on her own, getting more curious and observant, able to laugh and grin and grab – but not yet dashing through the house at top speed to get into trouble. Months 5 through 8 or so are pretty darn perfect, and Rosie was one of the sweetest babies I’ve ever met.
Alison and Colin were married on the hottest day of the summer in Calistoga, the land of hot, dry weather and even the natural hot mineral springs. People came from all over the country to help these two celebrate their marriage, and everyone had a joyful time despite the oven-like setting. The bride and groom both cried, and their love radiated more than the sun’s summer rays – seriously, these two are SO IN LOVE. It was thrilling to witness!
