I had so much fun photographing the W Family again this year. I photographed Ellora when she was just 3 months old, and now she just turned one. She has grown so much! Her mom and dad celebrated with a family photo session followed by a cake smash. Ellora is such a wonderful young person. She loved being thrown in the air by her dad, finding acorns, exploring her surroundings, and of course, eating cake! ellora1 ellora2 ellora3 ellora4

What a way to celebrate the Fall season! The F Family was such a blast to photograph, and the park was starting to change colors, which is exciting to see here in the Bay Area. Getting to know so many different families is one of my favorite parts of this job, and it was such a joy to be around this family’s playful loving energy at our photo session. These kiddos love their mommy and each other to pieces! (I hope my future kids get along this well someday!) Usually, when there is a kid under the age of 5, we move fast to try to avoid burn out. And 4-year old little Scotty hung in there for the full 50 minute session thanks to his awesome siblings (and a few candy brides from mom)! Their photos keep making me smile!

I began doing Senior Portraits two years ago and I absolutely love it! As a high school teacher and photographer, Senior Portraits combine my two loves: teenagers and photography! I find that Senior Portraits are such an awesome opportunity for teens to showcase and celebrate their individuality and their sense of who they are. And Emma is such a beautiful soul. Her loving, artistic, and sophisticated spirit shines through her photos at Sutro Baths, one of my favorite places to shoot portraits. I love the way photographing seniors can bring out a confidence and character that is sometimes just below the surface.  emmasenior1 emmasenior2 emmasenior3

This was such a special maternity session! Maribel and Brian chose to revisit Stow Lake and Pioneer Cabin in Golden Gate Park where they had first taken their engagement photos. I thought this was such a lovely way to mark this new chapter in their lives and happily remember their engagement. It was a beautiful evening session and an even more beautiful couple to mark the coming of Fall and their baby girl. Congratulations Maribel and Brian!

Meet three week old Mary and her proud new parents! Mary was happiest cuddling up to her mom and dad, and I loved snapping photos of her many different ways of snuggling up. The most precious thing about lifestyle sessions with newborns is being able to capture photos that illustrate those authentic little moments and newborn personalities that change so quickly.
