Santa Rosa In-Home Family Lifestyle Session // The Pugh Family

I haven’t had a family in-home session in nearly a year, so when Caroline asked me to come photograph her and her family I was OVER THE MOON. She and her husband and daughter, Emma, and I hung out, played in the bath, read stories, and made waffles. I absolutely LOVE when families invite me […]

Oakland Family Lifestyle Session // The Vanamans

I’ve been photographing the Vanaman family for 3 years now. 3 YEARS! I can’t believe how much Logan and Lucy have grown in the time I’ve known them…a marker even on how much my Oliver has grown as well. Their mommies are truly 2 of the kindest people I know and I absolutely LOVE that […]

Family Adventure Session in Bodega Bay // Tsai Family

One of my favorite families returned to the bay area this fall and requested a Labor Day family adventure session IN A TREE HOUSE. No big deal. I’m not sure if you’ll remember this family from last year, but the Tsais met me in Bodega at sunrise to photograph them with their 8 month old […]

Oliver Atle // 2nd Birthday Lifestyle Session, Santa Rosa Photographer

This is my kid. His name is Oliver and he just turned 2 years old. Sometimes I can’t believe I get to be his mama, but life blessed me with an awesome husband, who in turn helped me bring this incredible little human into our lives. Oliver is a curious, warm, wild, heart-filled little boy […]

Dionice + Geoff // Guerneville Maternity Session, Sonoma County Photographer

I hung out with Geoff, Dionice (juh-neese), and their 14 year old Dachsund Louie a couple weekends ago (while it was POURING) at the awesome Autocamp out in Guerneville to photograph their maternity session. We had so much fun playing in the rain and eating pie and ice cream at The Bank Club in downtown Guerneville! […]

The Buxbaums // Santa Rosa Family Session, Sonoma County Photographer

Annie contacted me about a mini family session after she had won a session I had donated to an auction. I’ve actually donated several sessions to fundraisers and this is the only one that has ever been redeemed. I’m not sure if this should make me feel sad or not, but I was SO HAPPY […]

The Vanamans // Oakland Family Session, Oakland Photographer

These guys. Oh man, I love these 4 so much. This was my 2nd time working with Danielle and Cari and it didn’t disappoint. Lucy and Logan were both a year older and so much fun to capture in the hills of Oakland. I can’t wait to photograph these 4 again! Featured

The Hagers // Santa Rosa Family Session, Sonoma County Photographer

‘Tis the season for family photos – basically my favorite and least favorite time of the year. Favorite time because the season is changing from Summer to Fall and everything feels…cozy. The leaves are changing, the weather is getting cooler, and people are excited to capture their families in our beautiful Sonoma County. Why is […]

The Chens // Bodega Bay Family Session, Sonoma County Photographer

When Shinru contacted me about a family session on the Bodega Bay coast, I was ecstatic. She and her husband, Kevin, were heading out with their baby girl, Parker, for a quick trip together. Parker is 8 months old and growing into quite a beautiful little girl. Shinru and Kevin are adventurous, kind people and […]

The Lins // Sutro Baths Family Session, San Francisco Photographer

The Lin family at the Sutro Baths. These guys were troopers. We decided on a sunrise session and this is the place they picked! I love the baths, especially when it’s foggy and there are ZERO people around! It was a beautiful morning. Crisp, breezy, and all around perfect. Could the be any cuter? Featured
