IS THERE ANYTHING CUTER THAN A NEWBORN

I absolutely love kids, and the more I’ve been photographing families, the more I’ve been falling in love with newborns. It’s such an honor to be able to photograph a couple that turns into a family of three. Their first child is life changing, as is any additional child, but it rocks your world in such a major way. I am so lucky to be able to capture their love all together. I can’t wait to continue photographing newborns in their cozy homes with their sweet parents and potentially silly siblings.

EXPLORING LANDS END ON ONE OF THE COLDEST DAYS OF THE YEAR

I love exploring Lands End with families. This was an especially foggy and extra chilly day, but they were so great braving the elements! No matter the weather, the most important thing for me is to have your family all snuggled up together so you can see how much you love each other in your photos. So if the weather isn’t great, don’t worry! The love will always come through!

MINIS ARE HERE

I can’t believe it’s almost October! Minis are in full swing, and I’m so excited to share some of my minis with you. I love my full sessions so much, but if you’ve got one kiddo, your schedule is so crazy, your sweet boy(s) or girl(s) love the camera and are ready to cheese it up for 20 minutes, these are for you! Minis aren’t for everyone because it is such a quick time slot, but even though they are quick they can still be pretty magical!

PLAY HAVEN SAN FRANCISCO

Play Haven is such a great place for a birthday party! When you can't be sure if it will be foggy or sunny, it's nice to know your party will be inside but that there's also an outdoor space which is so rare! The space is very large, especially when you're celebrating twins! It's perfect for running around, containing the smaller kids, and lots of activities so no one goes stir crazy. I highly recommend it, and the staff couldn't be more wonderful!

RUNNING AROUND IN SAN MATEO

When your family of three becomes a family of four, you have to celebrate with some photos! It was so great meeting this little love bug and seeing his older brother again. Three can be a tricky age because they want to explore and run around, but I promise if you let them run around for a bit and have them think they're in charge, they will come around. Kids just want to have fun (don't we all) so let them run around and get some energy out but most importantly don't stress! We have the time, and I've been told a time or two I have some patience!

BACKYARD FUN WITH LOTS OF CAKE

This backyard birthday party was so much fun! There were so many adorable kids running around (which can be rare for a San Francisco backyard party), and everyone was having such a great time. This party also had one of my favorite cake smashes! I always encourage cake smashes because whether they love it and dig right in or get overwhelmed, the photos will always be something to cherish!

SWEET FAMILY OF FOUR IN GOLDEN GATE PARK

This adorable family of four wanted some family photos before they left the Bay Area. As beautiful as San Francisco is, a lot of people I know don't stay in the Bay Area forever. It is such a special treat to be able to photograph families in San Francisco before they set out on their next adventure. If you're moving, let's get some family photos in! When my families move, it's also the best excuse to travel where they go so we can capture new memories.

FAMILY OF FOUR PLUS ONE MORE...DOG

I've been photographing this sweet family for years, and it's been so much fun to see how they all change over the years. I also can't believe that Lauren is taller than me! I also loved that they brought their adorable new pup along and also their grandma who was visiting. She was there to make everyone smile and watch the dog for some photos but of course I had to put her in the shot!
