Aletta and Family | Sonoma County Family Photographer

 Posted on October 31, 2016
I joined this playful party of six in Sonoma County for this fun and festive family photography session. Mom, Aletta, connected me with the Sonoma County Mom’s Blog {#sonomacountymomsblog}. It was such a joy to take these for their blog! These guys came relaxed and ready to play! I snapped away while they ran around, and laughed together. We got so many fun and natural poses of her beautiful kids and family. There was no shortage of smiles {or energy!} to photograph with all of these sweet faces. Real life moments like these are my favorites. And the Supergirl dress was just perfect. It was appropriate because Aletta is definitely a super mom! I was so impressed at how easy she makes mothering look. I was so honored when she said,  “Oh my gosh! I love so many of them. You are amazing!” It was my pleasure! I am so happy that you have updated family photographs. Portraits like these are important because as mom’s, we are often the ones taking the pictures. Behind the camera {smart phone} but never in the pictures! Scheduling family photographs ensures that your children will always have treasured mommy and me memories to look back on. Long after the kids grow up and move out, images like these allow you to take a trip back in time to their precious little years. Such a treasure! Contact me today to schedule portraits for your family!

Cameron | San Francisco Newborn Photographer

 Posted on July 6, 2016
Welcome new little cutie Cameron! Mom Karen came to my Portrero Hill studio in San Francisco with this stunning little guy and her daughter who I also had the pleasure of photographing as a newborn back in 2013. What a treat to see her so grown up now and loving her new promotion to “big sister”! She was so sweet and affectionate covering Cameron in kisses. And Cameron was the perfect little newborn model. Which is not an easy thing being so new to the world! He slept and then was so calm while he was awake. I am still in awe of the eye contact and serious connection this little one formed with the camera. It reminded me of that quote, “A new baby is like the beginning of all things – wonder, hope, a dream of possibilities.” I can’t help but wonder sometimes as a San Francisco newborn photographer about all of the amazing things these precious babies will grow up to accomplish in their lives. It is such a pleasure to capture these little souls within the first few days of life. Mom said, “I love how they came out! Thank you again!”

Tommy, Beautiful Newborn Boy | San Francisco Newborn Photographer

 Posted on June 29, 2016
I met this beautiful family at their lovely San Francisco home for their newborn photography session. They just welcomed their adorable newborn son, Tommy and I was so excited to capture all of his precious newborn features. He was just the sweetest little guy and I couldn’t get enough of his chubby cheeks and handsome head of hair. These three actually live right next door to Grandma and Grandpa! {What a lucky little boy.. and grandparents!} In addition to all of Tommy’s wonderful family members, I was greeted by two very curious kitties. I love capturing my clients fur babies during sessions as well, and this one turned out to be extra meaningful as sadly, one of their cats passed away the very next day. That was so hard but the family was grateful to have had some photos with Tommy and the kitties. You never know how priceless a photograph is until someone you love is no longer with you. I am honored to have captured these precious moments for this special family. Mom said, “My goodness. Pictures are gorgeous. Thank you so much!!” You are so welcome, and I hope you enjoy them for many years to come!

Newborn Valentina | San Francisco Newborn Photographer

 Posted on June 21, 2016

It’s a girl! Welcome to the world little Valentina. It’s always so exciting when my clients have their second babies! I first met Elizabeth and Daejin when they were expecting their little boy almost 4 years ago. Flash forward, and now Remy {who can’t wait to turn 4!} is the best big bro. These guys came to the studio to celebrate our 10 year anniversary {see photos here} while Elizabeth was still pregnant and when baby arrived just 2 days later, I joined them at home in San Francisco for this precious newborn session. The first few days at home are filled with so much love. My in home newborn sessions are always so magical. I never tire of capturing all of those precious newborn details. Tiny toes and fingers, sweet squishy faces, and button noses. As a San Francisco newborn photographer, I feel like I constantly have a case of baby fever! I still feel warm and fuzzy from all of the love these guys had for their new little girl. Here are a few of my favorite images from our time together. Enjoy!
