Testing out a new lens | Fremont Family Lifestyle Photographer

Jul 10, 2017

Every now and again, I add a new lens to my arsenal. I mainly shoot with prime lenses, which are fixed at one focal length (read: no zoom!). I was photographing a recital for Luna Dance Studio in Palo Alto, so I decided it was time to add a zoom to my growing collection. I’m […]

Palo Alto Family of Four | Bay Area Family Photographer

May 1, 2017

Soooo I was scheduling blog posts and realized I had never blogged this mini session from last fall which is a shame because this family was super nice! They had recently moved to Palo Alto from the midwest and were wanting to get family photos done for their holiday cards. We originally were going to […]

Family Storytelling Session In Home and Out | San Jose Family Photographer

Apr 3, 2017

After I came back from The Family Narrative I really thought about where my heart was in terms of family photography and the work I do. At the very heart of it, I found that what I felt calling me was really telling the stories of families. While I do love doing one hour sessions, […]

Sweet and Simple In Home Family Session | Menlo Park Maternity Photographer

Mar 27, 2017

I have a friend who’s a doula, Lauren Noble, that refers clients to me every once in a while. When she referred the W family and I spoke with Marjorie during our pre-session consult, I knew it was going to be a great session. The family is expecting a baby girl (right around now, actually!) […]

M + G | Palo Alto In-Home Family Lifestyle Session

Nov 10, 2016

Last month I posted a mini slideshow of an in-home session I did for a sweet family in Palo Alto. M & G’s parents wanted some great pictures of their girls that weren’t taken with an iPhone and really captured their personalities at this moment in their lives. I seriously love taking photos of children […]

Baby Ripley | Fremont Newborn Lifestyle Session

Oct 24, 2016

I met Shannon through a local Fremont moms Facebook group. Her son Ripley was diagnosed with a congenital heart defect and needed surgery and she wanted to have some photos taken before and after the surgery to document such a huge event. We agreed that an in-home family lifestyle session sounded like the right setting […]

Baby Abir | Campbell In-Home Family Lifestyle Session

Oct 5, 2016

The more in-home sessions I do, the more I fall in love with them. There’s just something so intimate about photographing a family in the place they spend most of their time together. A place few people are invited into. The Jain family contacted me about doing a session with their new son in their […]

The Smith Family at Melt Ice Cream | DFW//Bay Area Family Lifestyle Photographer

Apr 11, 2016

It’s kind of embarrassing how long it’s taken me to blog about this session. The truth is, this might be one of my absolutely favorite sessions ever. Because ice cream. And that yellow wall. I mean, amiright?! I’ve been photographing the Smith family for, oh, maybe 4 years now? Even though I’ve moved to the […]
