Want a perfect place to photograph a family in SAN FRANCISCO?

 Posted on February 8, 2017

What makes a location amazing for taking family photographs?
For me, there are 4 key elements: Lighting, Background, Variety and sometimes Iconography.

When I am working with a family with 2 small children, I love having a large space for the children to run and play. It is even more perfect when that space has consistent lighting.

I love to have a background with leading lines but also one that is not distracting. After all, the stars of the show are your family members and we want them to shine.

Within one location, I love to get a variety of looks so it is important to be able to work around the location. Using different angles and points of view help create the variety I want to offer in each family portrait session.

In San Francisco, iconography is a big part of many of the sessions I photograph. I mean, BIG, like Golden Gate Bridge big! So, often, we need a location that can showcase the GGB AND have the other 3 key elements as well.
For this sweet family of four, we chose the Legion of Honor in San Francisco. It is one of my favorite locations for family sessions.

Check out all of the fun place for the kids to run and hide. We played chase, peek-a-boo and hide-and-seek. It was so much fun!  Mom and dad are in love with the photos! Mom said, “The photos are amazing! Thank you so much for doing such a great job… I am so happy we waited the location and the weather was perfect :)”


Cutest Baby Ever: Sebastian | San Francisco Newborn Photographer

 Posted on January 23, 2017
And baby makes four! Meet Sebastian. I hung out with him and his big sis at their home in San Francisco for this newborn photography session. I had the pleasure of photographing miss Penelope just 20 months ago when we did her newborn photo session. I just love how Sebastian seems to round out their loving family of four. One of the greatest joys of my work is getting to watch a client’s family grow and change. Sebastian was picture perfect and did so well sleeping for much of the session. This shoot had great balance, because just like your typical toddler, Penelope was full of energy and loved to play with her dad, color, read, build with Legos and do so many things while we were photographing. My favorite images are the family having fun on the bed during “playtime”. Congratulations on your new addition to the family guys!

Baby Sebastian | San Francisco Baby Photographer

Meet Sebastian! This adorable little guy was a joy to photograph. At just 6 months old he is already sitting like a big boy! Mom, dad, and little S joined me at Golden Gate Park in San Francisco for this baby photography session. It’s one of my favorite locations for sessions. I love how the little white flowers that pop up there delicately framed these portraits. And his handsome little outfits were the icing on the cake. I loved capturing all of his chubby baby details. He had the most beautiful eyes and such a happy personality. He is so lucky to have the greatest mom and dad and I can’t wait to photograph his next milestone. Babies change so much from month to month. Professional baby photographs allow you to take a quick trip back to a moment otherwise gone forever from your kiddo’s childhood. Contact me today to schedule your session. Until next time Sebastian!

Newborn August | San Francisco Newborn Photographer

 Posted on January 9, 2017
Welcome to the world baby August. I drove over to my clients’ home in San Francisco for this sweet newborn photography session. They have such a beautiful family and I was excited to capture August for them. This session was dripping with gorgeous natural light and I adore how it just streamed in plentifully through their bedroom window! Big sister definitely had her priorities and taking these photographs was not one of them! I am grateful, however, that you would NEVER know that from these photos. We got her laughing and having a great time with mom and dad + baby August and ended up with some beautiful moments. I think it’s special when small details, like taking portraits in mom and dad’s room serve to personalize the images and add meaning. I couldn’t decide if I liked the b + w or color images most, so here are some favorites of both!
