“Come and knock on our door, we’ve been waiting for you.” 🎼 Play houses and swings are two things that will guarantee a happy smile from a child, no doubt! Oh and ice cream, oh to be a toddler!

When I first started shooting newborns, I couldn’t help but anticipate the day I would bring my baby home and take pictures of them all day everyday. Psshh, I’m so glad that I am able to document this special time for my clients because that time is such a crazy whirlwind that you honestly forget to take pictures. Sleep, is pretty much all that you can think about oh and how many kisses is considered too much for a baby.

TGIF!! I often get asked what’s a piece of advice for new moms, before anything else, find a tribe and love them hard! They’ll be the ones you’ll call to celebrate the milestones and hold your hand through the frustrating moments. Parenting is tough and it helps to be going through the same thing at the same time with friends. .

Can’t believe this squish turns four this week! Time is unstoppable which means pictures are your only tool to revisit the past and keep those memories alive. Don’t let these moments pass you by.

As a kid I was never able to master the monkey bars, had a blast capturing Maddie swinging back and forth and my favorite part is big brother Blake cheering her on. Go Maddie!! .

I had the pleasure of shooting a 50th wedding anniversary party last weekend, I had a blast following around the grandkids as they played red light, green light, practiced for an impromptu dance show and a sign language performance to what a wonderful world. That was my moms favorite song, as the kids performed I had to hide my tears behind my camera. Not awkward at all to be the only one crying at a job right? Kids are such a gentle reminder to live and enjoy that moment. .

I found an amazing location for photos so naturally I had to host a day of #minisessions Reserve a spot, Aug 5, perfect for a portrait of your little, some fun shots of the whole family, an expecting mom, a gender reveal, your pup needs a new headshot 😉 Sessions are 15 minutes and you will receive all the edited images on an online viewing gallery that you can download at your convenience. Link in bio to save your spot! .

Summer is made for sun hats and cute bathing suits. I photographed a sweet 95th birthday this weekend in healdsburg, the one day it was record high temps, 104 to be exact. Since then the east bay has had overcast and chilly mornings, what’s the deal?!

I think the initial reaction with twins is “double everything!!!” While that is crazy overwhelming and I want to hug and high five every parent of multiples I meet, I also think about how rewarding it must be. You think your heart expands with one? Imagine two! Double the kisses, the hugs, the milestones to celebrate. Double the fun!! .
