Since becoming a Mom in the Spring, family photos have an entirely different meaning than they did before our little one arrived. Photographing the W family was such a treat, we had an early morning session at Alameda Crown Memorial State Beach. We had the entire beach to ourselves and Karl the Fog gave us such pretty light to work with. Baby W will be joining the world soon, and I really can’t wait to see this family of four become a family of five!

When the stars align, engagement sessions like this one come to life! Over Christmas we were planning to take a road trip to visit family in a few different states, the timing worked out perfectly and we were able to meet my little brother and his fiancé in Arches National Park for this engagement session! It was a chilly 20* out by the time we finished shooting, but it was totally worth every goose bump! I can’t wait for these two to continue their life together and was so lucky to have been able to photograph this time in their lives! And the last image was one in a collection of outtakes…highlights life with a little brother perfectly, even as adults 🙂Moab, Destination Photographer, Engagement Photographer, Southern Utah, National Park Engagement SessionMoab, Destination Photographer, Engagement Photographer, Southern Utah, National Park Engagement SessionMoab, Destination Photographer, Engagement Photographer, Southern Utah, National Park Engagement SessionMoab, Destination Photographer, Engagement Photographer, Southern Utah, National Park Engagement SessionMoab, Destination Photographer, Engagement Photographer, Southern Utah, National Park Engagement SessionMoab, Destination Photographer, Engagement Photographer, Southern Utah, National Park Engagement SessionMoab, Destination Photographer, Engagement Photographer, Southern Utah, National Park Engagement SessionMoab, Destination Photographer, Engagement Photographer, Southern Utah, National Park Engagement SessionMoab, Destination Photographer, Engagement Photographer, Southern Utah, National Park Engagement SessionMoab, Destination Photographer, Engagement Photographer, Southern Utah, National Park Engagement SessionMoab, Destination Photographer, Engagement Photographer, Southern Utah, National Park Engagement SessionMoab, Destination Photographer, Engagement Photographer, Southern Utah, National Park Engagement SessionMoab, Destination Photographer, Engagement Photographer, Southern Utah, National Park Engagement SessionMoab, Destination Photographer, Engagement Photographer, Southern Utah, National Park Engagement SessionMoab, Destination Photographer, Engagement Photographer, Southern Utah, National Park Engagement SessionMoab, Destination Photographer, Engagement Photographer, Southern Utah, National Park Engagement SessionMoab, Destination Photographer, Engagement Photographer, Southern Utah, National Park Engagement SessionMoab, Destination Photographer, Engagement Photographer, Southern Utah, National Park Engagement SessionMoab, Destination Photographer, Engagement Photographer, Southern Utah, National Park Engagement SessionMoab, Destination Photographer, Engagement Photographer, Southern Utah, National Park Engagement SessionMoab, Destination Photographer, Engagement Photographer, Southern Utah, National Park Engagement SessionMoab, Destination Photographer, Engagement Photographer, Southern Utah, National Park Engagement SessionMoab, Destination Photographer, Engagement Photographer, Southern Utah, National Park Engagement SessionMoab, Destination Photographer, Engagement Photographer, Southern Utah, National Park Engagement SessionMoab, Destination Photographer, Engagement Photographer, Southern Utah, National Park Engagement SessionMoab, Destination Photographer, Engagement Photographer, Southern Utah, National Park Engagement SessionMoab, Destination Photographer, Engagement Photographer, Southern Utah, National Park Engagement SessionMoab, Destination Photographer, Engagement Photographer, Southern Utah, National Park Engagement Session

One of the biggest lessons I was taught at the Foundation Workshop was to practice opening my heart and loving my subjects before I even photograph them, so in a way it kind of feels like cheating when I photograph people I already know, because the hard part has already been done! And when the hard part is over, the door opens for the most beautiful photos! And photography becomes incredibly fun, and I feel so much pride for the images that I create, and I want more! And it pushes me to work even harder to make the best images I can. So thank you, Molly and Mike for choosing me to be your photographer! And also for giving me the ultimate tour of Santa Cruz! We shot their Santa Cruz engagement session at Mitchell’s Cove Beach and Natural Bridges. And the most amazing thing happened, I love Charlie beagle more than any other dog in the world (and by default beagles in general), but I’m also now a HUGE fan of Dachshunds, especially when they’re named Frank and wear bowties. And I’m pretty sure Santa is bringing Charlie Beagle his first bowtie!

Oh San Francisco! You have the prettiest City Hall! After Kelly and Vince’s amazing Mt. Tam engagement session, I wasn’t sure even City Hall would measure up, but I should have known better! City Hall is as pretty as it gets! Kelly’s bouquet from Ampersand was one of my favorite bouquets this year!

Lindsey is one of the best Moms I know, she fiercely loves her daughter, and I couldn’t have been more excited to shoot their family photos this year! We met at Muir Beach, and O.M.G., it was sooo beautiful! I’ve lived in the Bay Area for almost 13 years and I couldn’t believe I hadn’t seen this little gem before, and I can’t wait to go back!

‘Tis the season for catching up on blogging, and this session couldn’t have at a better time! I met Lauren, Alex and their pup Frannie at Santa’s Tree Farm in Half Moon Bay. Initially, I’d been hoping for fog, being so close to Half Moon Bay, but the warm, glowing California sun made for a stunning background! Christmas is one of my favorite seasons, and I look forward to putting up my Christmas tree shortly after we take it down right after Christmas, so naturally, a Christmas Tree Farm session has been on my bucket list for ages…and we finally made it happen! Half Moon Bay, Christmas Tree Farm, Engagement SessionHalf Moon Bay, Christmas Tree Farm, Engagement SessionHalf Moon Bay, Christmas Tree Farm, Engagement SessionHalf Moon Bay, Christmas Tree Farm, Engagement SessionHalf Moon Bay, Christmas Tree Farm, Engagement SessionHalf Moon Bay, Christmas Tree Farm, Engagement SessionHalf Moon Bay, Christmas Tree Farm, Engagement SessionHalf Moon Bay, Christmas Tree Farm, Engagement SessionHalf Moon Bay, Christmas Tree Farm, Engagement SessionHalf Moon Bay, Christmas Tree Farm, Engagement SessionHalf Moon Bay, Christmas Tree Farm, Engagement SessionHalf Moon Bay, Christmas Tree Farm, Engagement SessionHalf Moon Bay, Christmas Tree Farm, Engagement SessionHalf Moon Bay, Christmas Tree Farm, Engagement SessionHalf Moon Bay, Christmas Tree Farm, Engagement SessionHalf Moon Bay, Christmas Tree Farm, Engagement Session

When Kelly and Vincent said they love to be outdoors, I knew they might be the perfect couple to help me with a session at the top of my bucket list! We headed up to the top of Mt. Tam, hoping for a gorgeous sunset session. We saw the fog coming but it still looked like we had a chance! But by the time we got up there, it was raining, super foggy, and the winds would have been nearly impossible to work with. So we headed back down the mountain and found a stunningly beautiful spot. While the Bay Area isn’t the Pacific North West, we sure do have some beautiful mountains, this Mt. Tam engagement session is at the top of my favorite list!

As 2016 is coming to an end, not only do I have a ton of blogging to catch up on, but it’s also time to reflect on the year as a whole. I’ve had the best clients this year, and Kristen and Paul were no exception! Their wedding was so full of laughter, hugs full of love. It was such an honor to be able to spend the day documenting the wedding of these two, who truly have found their soul mates in one another! They tied the not at HS Lorships in Berkeley.
