Family is Everything

Late summer and early fall is one of my favorite times of the year for outdoor family photos here in the Bay Area. The natural grasses are the prettiest soft golden shade and that beautiful California light is simply perfect this time of year. I met this wonderful family in the fall of 2019 when I photographed their daughter’s one year session. They reached out again when they found out they were expecting another baby to reserve a newborn session. Unfortunately this little one missed out on his newborn photos due to the 2020 Shelter in Place order, but we were able to reschedule for an outdoor family session in September instead. Little brother had me smitten with his beautiful blue eyes…such an adorable age to photograph. 2020 was a crazy year but it made us realize even more that family is everything.♡

Mama’s dress and all children clothing was provided by the Studio Wardrobe that is available to all clients to borrow from.

If you are interested in learning more about reserving a family session, please contact me so we can start planning our session together. I would love the opportunity to document your family’s love and connection.

A Look Back at 2020

2020 was a challenging year for all of us. It was especially difficult for small business owners and I am incredibly grateful to everyone who supported my business that I have poured my heart and soul into for the past eight years. To my clients, thank you for your patience and understanding as we navigated this unprecedented situation and had to reschedule many of your sessions multiple times as businesses were forced to close. Despite the difficulties, this year had some unexpected blessings as well which I am incredibly grateful for. It forced us all to slow down and be more intentional with our time…it taught us the value of family and the importance of focusing on what really matters. I believe photographs are a vital part in documenting your family’s love and legacy so thank you for trusting me to capture so many beautiful moments for you this past year.

Here are some of my favorite images of your babies, bellies and families in 2020. Wishing you a Happy New Year filled with health, joy and love!

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.
