I bring you a break in Fall family photos to show you some gorgeousness of my dear friend and colleague Michelle with her sweet baby boy. Michelle is gorgeous in this Reclamation Design Co. dress and her son is wearing a super soft and muted romper. Michelle was kind enough to pose for me for a test shoot at the indoor location I am planning to use to host my first photography 1/2 day retreat experience in July 2020 where I will be coaching and taking on 6 other photographers as I mentor them through my shooting process start to finish both with 1 indoor motherhood session similar to this and also with 1 sunset family session. All images are edited with my own presets (not for sale yet, but coming!) and no artificial lighting was used. Aren’t they gorgeous guys? Ok, next blog post will be back to regular scheduled programming of tons and tons of amazing East Bay family photos!
Fall family photos are in full swing here in the East Bay! I was lucky enough to photograph this gorgeous family in the East Bay hills just as the sun was setting and the moon was rising - my favorite time of day for photos! I have been receiving inquiries daily from amazing potential clients asking for availability and since my booking process was full months in advance this year I am going to be adding e-mail addresses to my list and for 2020 I will e-mail out available dates for Fall sessions in July 2020 and this way their will be a a set window for booking. So please reach out if you would like to be included in that e-mail next year! As always, I am grateful for this career, business and opportunity to capture your family memories during this season of life. More session to come, but first check out this gorgeous family! We had so much fun!
Some of my dearest friends are about to show up below! We had to make a last minute location change morning of because of a super unexpected bright sunrise (happens sometimes with sunrise sessions!) but we were easily able to meet at an awesome morning session location and take advantage of the beautiful rising sun. So thankful for friends who trust me with their family memories :) Get ready some some serious color and fun!
Had so many shots from this session I had to narrow it down for the blog - a good problem to have! I adore seeing these 3 boys in Lafayette, CA each year and documenting how they grow - the sweetest brothers! Fall sessions are in full swing around here and things are busy! I am humble and grateful for all the families who trust me year after year with their memories - thank you!
The holiday rush is here! I have been taking on more work this year which is amazing but also super busy! Check out this gorgeous family nestled in the redwoods of Northern California!
I was honored to be able to photograph this couple for their wedding celebration session right here in the East Bay! I don’t shoot large weddings, but I do take on a limited number of elopements and styled wedding sessions every year. Enjoy!
Just a mom and her boys - lots of them! So honored to photograph this beautiful mom and her family - they were stunning!
I had the pleasure of recently attending the Soul Seekers Retreat hosted by Jodi Lynn Photography and Paisley Ann Photography right here in San Francisco! We shot 5 styled sessions together in 24 hours (Wow!!!) and being able to shoot along side these amazing ladies and artists was so fulfilling! I can not wait to keep the momentum going and dive into Fall sessions here in the East Bay! Take a look at some of my favorite shots from the 24 hour whirlwind below!
I take on a small number of extended family sessions every year and they are always so much fun! I love having lots of people, lots of love and lots of movement and motion! I had to pick and choose a handful out for the blog from this session because if I used them all it would take pages and pages - thats how fun this session was! Enjoy!
Photographed in the beautiful East Bay hills of Moraga, this family is set to welcome their second sweet baby in July and I had the pleasure of photographing them! Here are some favorites! Enjoy!
Some motherhood time in an industrial studio is always so fun and relaxed! Here are some of my favorites from this sweet session.
All these recent motherhood sessions give me all the feels! This one consisted of a seriously gorgeous mom, adorable baby boy and a rainy March morning with small pockets of light. I love capturing motherhood as much as families you guys - it’s so powerful and gorgeous. Enjoy!
