I recently had the pleasure of photographing this young rising star.  Miss V is a super talented performer with aspirations of becoming the next Taylor Swift.  On top of her incredible talents as a stage actress and singer, she is one of the kindest, sweetest young ladies you could ever hope to meet.  Watch out world, this little lady is about to make a big loud noise!

Little Locke


This past summer, I got to photograph my cousin, Timmy, and his beautiful wife, Alexis, with their new baby boy, Locke. Locke is the sweetest, happiest little guy I have met in quite some time but his demeanor is not surprising to me as my cousin and his wife are incredibly genuine, down to earth people who know how to just go with the flow.  They make my job SUPER easy and I just loved getting to spend to some time with this little man!  Too stinkin’ cute! :)

Lake Tahoe

Lake Tahoe is incredible, especially in the summer months.  Any chance I have to visit and shoot there is such a treat for me and most recently, I had the pleasure of shooting close friends there along with their super cute boy/girl twins.  Check out all the action!  Have you booked your family session yet?  Don’t let these memories pass you by.  Start creating them today!

The Dogpatch


It’s crazy how fast time flies but I really do love getting to see how much families grow year after year.  I am looking forward to seeing this beautiful family again shortly.  Here are some shots from our last shoot in one of my favorite areas in all of San Francisco, The Dogpatch.  This neighborhood, with its textures, light, and backdrop, is hands down the best!

The Dunes Club

The end of summer/beginning of fall is a great time to take family portraits especially if you head back to the beaches which are practically empty at this point.  I met up with little Eddie and his family at the Dunes Club for his very first family photo shoot.  It’s so much fun to shoot new families and this family could not have been sweeter.  This little boy’s face makes my heart melt every time I look at his pictures and his parents were beyond lovely.  We had the most incredible afternoon of shooting.  Have you captured your families memories for 2014?  It’s not too late! Don’t let these moments escape you!

Fenway Beach


It’s always such a pleasure to photograph old friends.  This summer, I had the opportunity to re-connect with my friend Christine and meet her beautiful family.  Christine and I grew up spending our summers together in southern Rhode Island.  We met up on a warm summer evening at one of my favorite beaches to capture these portraits and we ended up shooting until the sun went down.  This is my favorite time of day to shoot where the light is absolute perfection.  I just love it!

Lands End

What do you do when the government shuts down your photo shoot??  That’s a scenario I recently encountered when I met up with one of my favorite twin families.  We had all planned to meet at China Beach to shoot this year’s portraits except, due to the government shut down at the time, the gates to the beach were closed, therefore, denying us access. Thankfully, in San Francisco, there is no shortage of exceptional places to shoot so we jumped up the street to Lands End and did our shoot there.  It’s so fun to see how much George and Charlotte have grown in just a year’s time.  I am so thankful to have the opportunity to capture another year of memories for this beautiful family.


Chloe has got to be one of the coolest little quirk burgers I have ever met.  She is funny, sassy, creative and has a super cool style all her own.  I met her, her parents, her grandma, and her dog Marley at one of my favorite all time shooting areas in SF, Heron’s Head Park.  The weather was just superb!  It’s days like these that make my heart ache for SF.  I am so thankful I get to come back out and meet super cool families like this one and capture these memories for them.  Check out all the action!

Finally Thawing Out

This winter was brutal.  Oh my goodness.  I’ll admit it, when the first snow fell, it was really beautiful and I was excited for the twins to experience their first snow storm.  But when we lost electricity for three days, I was over it.  So over it.  On top of that, everyone was getting sick and spring just couldn’t come fast enough.  Well, spring kind of got robbed a bit by this long winter but summer is right around the corner and I am so psyched for some warm beach weather.  Despite the long, dark, cold days we endured, we still managed to get out and enjoy ourselves quite a bit.  We went to the beach in star pants and moon boots, we fed the animals at the farm down the street, we played at the playground and visited the ducks at the park in town.  One of us even got his first haircut!  So long winter.  See ya next year!
