My Baby Turns Two!

Our youngest turned two! I guess we need to officially stop referring to him as “the baby” now. I’m feeling a little emotional about it as it seems like the end of an era for us. It’s true what they say…babies don’t keep and it really does go by so fast.

He has always been my most challenging photography subject ever (starting at birth) and getting him to cooperate for birthday photos was no easy task. Thankfully, he was interested in his cake this year and even jumped for joy…I mean, who doesn’t get excited about cake, amirite? I wanted to keep it timeless with a simple vanilla naked cake garnished with fresh olive leaves (one of my favorite greenery options).

We’ve managed to recreate the photo of me holding him in the chair in our living room every single year and I hope to continue the tradition as long as he’ll let me.

Clothing is from Jamie Kay and Zara and available as part of the studio wardrobe.

Beautiful Light, Beautiful Love

While still in her first trimester, this expecting mother reached out and said, “I love your pictures. The soft colors, the scenery and the light. It’s exactly how I imagined our maternity pictures.” I love when people are able to connect to my work in this way and know they want me to be the one to photograph such a special time for them. There are so many maternity photographers in the Bay Area to choose from, so I am always honored when someone chooses me.

When it finally came time for their maternity session months later, we couldn’t have asked for a more perfect evening with the prettiest soft golden light. She selected two different dresses from my extensive studio collection and looked amazing in both options. Even though breathtaking scenery, gorgeous light and pretty dresses all make for beautiful photos, it’s the visible love and joy of new parents that truly makes all the difference and gives that beauty real meaning.

If you are expecting and interested in reserving an outdoor maternity photography session in the Bay Area, please contact me so we can start planning our session together.

The Sweetest New Sisters

Newborn sessions are usually reserved months in advance but every once in awhile my schedule shifts and I can accommodate someone last minute (so it never hurts to ask). I’m thankful I was able to squeeze this sweet baby girl and her beautiful family in as they were so incredibly nice. New Baby sister was gorgeous with her long lashes and full head of glossy dark hair and big sister was as proud as could be.

My Sweet Girl Turns Six!

Happy sixth birthday to my sweet and spirited sunshine girl. The world is a brighter place because of you.

We’ve taken “Mommy and Me” photos for every one of her birthdays now and I am so happy I have all these memories to look back upon. I love this girl so incredibly much and am truly blessed to have her as my daughter. Before I became a mother, I used to think I would be the one teaching my children but as it turns out, they are often the ones teaching me…and I still have much to learn. Her joyful spirit and enthusiasm are infectious, her confidence is inspiring and she is wise well beyond her years. She loves life and others with such a full heart and inspires me to be a better person.

The lace maxi dress is from For Love and Lemons and the little girl dress is from BHLDN. Both were borrowed from the studio wardrobe and are available to all clients.
