Jackie & Greg’s sunset engagement

This is another one of those sessions where the photos just seem to get more magical as they go; the light was fantastic on that evening and we shot well into dusk. Even aside from the beautiful day, they’re such a sweet and fun (and needless to say adorable) couple and we had a blast.

Shelley & Stephen Engagement

SO excited to post this session. We had a rare treat of a warm sunny day, AND a great sunset in San Francisco at Sutro Baths. This is one of my favorite locations since it’s so beautiful and has so many sites in one area. Such a sweet and fun couple and I had a blast shooting their engagement photos. Can’t wait for their Santa Rosa wedding in May!

Proposal and engagement

So I will be the first to admit… I’m pretty behind on my blogs, but that just means I’ve been busy, right? 😉

Anyways… I was so touched (and lets be honest, insanely excited,) when Ed reached out to me to shoot his proposal. He told me all about his fiancé and his love for her and I was literally brought to tears during our initial conversation. He told me his plan to take her to one of his favorite childhood spots, and we coordinated it from there. I hid out in a crowd of tourists with a super long lens (feeling a little like a sniper.) It was tough to get great shots without a bunch of people in the way, but I was able to capture the entire moment of him coaxing her onto the sand in her heels to when he dropped to one knee and she said yes.

Naturally, their engagement session was one of the happiest I’ve ever done, even for myself. It was all so fresh and exciting and you can truly see it in their faces.

So, guys, take my advice here, kill two birds with one stone (yep I said it, one less photo session you have to be put through?) and have your proposal photographed AND engagement photos to follow. You’ll both obviously be in a great mood, you’ll already be ready, and you’ll have every single moment captured. What could be better than that? She’ll love you for it even more.

Mickey’s maternity

I realized I am a little behind in posting this blog when I had thought of the fact that this fabulous soon to be mama of two does now, in fact, have two! She gave birth to another darling little one just a couple weeks ago. Excited to meet him and photograph the sweet new addition!
Mickey is so sweet and full of life. We walked around the neighborhood getting different scenes, and even fully pregnant AND in heels she was happy, energetic, and graceful. So much fun, and the photos really capture that in her!

Stay tuned for a future post of her little one 🙂

Connie & Ashley

I had such a blast photographing this engagement shoot. When Connie told me about her ideas for locations around Los Angeles, ideas instantly started flowing through my head. We hit a couple spots in downtown LA, including the Disney Concert Hall and the LA dept of Water and power, and the beach and pier in Santa Monica.
Both LA-based lawyers, they have their professional sides, but definitely know how to have fun and enjoy themselves. It was a blast working with them, and I can’t wait to photograph their upcoming Santa Barbara wedding!

Tamra & Robbie

Such an adorable momma and son duo. Robbie is one of the smartest and most accomplished ten year olds I have ever met, with a personality to match. They are a blast to be around, and it is so awesome being able to witness the love between a mom and her son. ]

Little Ian’s First year

I was honored to photograph this lovely lady’s maternity shoot last year, and now her baby is already a precious one year old. I love seeing the progression of families; definitely one of my favorite parts of what I do! Ian had just began walking not too long before the shoot, so capturing his steps was also an awesome moment for me and for his parents as well.

The Rozenberg/Delgadillo Family

This is my second year doing their family portraits, and I can definitely say there is never a dull moment! They are such a beautiful family and a blast to work with. Merry Christmas!

Brandy & Braylin

Had a great time with these lovely ladies, who happen to be one of the cutest mommy/daughter duos I have ever met! We could not have picked a better day for the shoot either; it was a gorgeous, 80 degree fall day with perfect warm, fall sunlight.

Enjoy!

Marissa & Justin

I recently spent a weekend with one of my old friends from middle school and her husband in San Francisco, and we decided it was the perfect time to do a shoot. They are already married, and recently had an anniversary so it was a perfect opportunity. They are such an amazing couple, and are a blast to be around. Also, this was my first shoot I’ve done in my favorite city, so I’m really excited about that as well.
As always,
Enjoy!
