Liam, Angie and Tom, maternity and baby portraits

I’ve photographed this sweet couple from engagement, through marriage and now their growing family!  Baby Liam is almost not a baby any longer, but as his “Big Brother” t-shirt illustrates, there will be a new baby in the family soon.

Jennifer and Jon, Kunde Winery and St. Francis Winery, ...

New in 2015: less is more, so in an attempt to share the soooooooo many photo shoots I’ve yet to blog, I’m going to cut out the thinky words I usually try to post, and just let the pictures speak for themselves.

Jennifer and Jon, a small Sonoma Valley destination wedding for these New Yorkers, with their closest friends and family at Kunde Winery ceremony, with St. Francis Winery reception.

Colorful rainy day girls

In the midst of wrapping up my wedding season’s editing and album designing, I really appreciate the chance to do a tiny photo shoot just for fun!  Symphony and our neighbor friend, Gracie, could be twins, except for the hair.  One curly, one straight.

We are expecting lots more rain here in Northern California this week – lovely, wonderful rain! – after a crazy long drought.  It’s a little bittersweet, because we will still need SO much more rain to dig out of the drought, and because flooding is not great, either.  But it’s easy to just feel thrilled with the stormy weather, especially with such joyful California girls who finally get to use their boots, raincoats and umbrellas!


Katie and Sam Engagements, San Francisco Botanical Gard...

I love photographing couples in the San Francisco Botanical Garden!  It’s spread out but you can’t get lost too easily (which is a good thing for me – since I have no sense of direction and love to wander), and there’s such a beautiful diversity of plant life on the grounds, that there is guaranteed to be some gorgeous light somewhere (if not everywhere).  Katie and Sam are charming, happy, smart people who love each other truly.  What could make for a sweeter shoot?!

Oh, San Francisco, how I love you!
