Wildfires and Families - Moraga Family Photographer

I am always humbled by my clients who trust me with their family memories, especially when photographing other photographers who are super talented! Kayla and her family are absolutely stunning and I was honored to have them in front of my camera. California is up in flames right now and the majority of my outdoor photo sessions have been canceled because of the air quality. It was my pleasure to brave the conditions with this beautiful family and find the everlasting beauty of California. The light was hazy, everything turned all sorts of colors because of the smoke, but we got out there for this unique session and made memories. Enjoy!

A Baby and her Dog! Moraga Family Photographer

More and more mini sessions are hitting the blog! This gorgeous family was from Tuesday evening (less than 48 hours ago!) and they were a dream - so beautiful inside and out and how adorable is this little one? She would light up every time her dog came her way! Next mini session evening is next Thursday and in between I have 6 regular shoots…..bring it on!

Among the Redwoods - Moraga Family Photographer

How gorgeous is this family?! We had such a nice time Sunday morning capturing them in the beautiful California redwoods. I hold all redwood sessions in the morning (and just about every other location at sunset!) because it gets so dark under the beautiful canopies. Just a sample of the many photos delivered today in their gallery!

Mini Session Rush Continues! - Moraga Family Photographer

I finished up editing my first round of mini session from last week and I loved each and every one of the families who booked! So humbled and thankful to have these sell out so quickly. I have watched this family grow and these children develop and I just love being able to document them year after year. Peak into some of the gallery from their session - mini sessions are 20 minutes and I don’t think I gave a gallery less than 80 images to anyone so far - I clearly have a hard time narrowing it all down!

Happy Fall! - Moraga Family Photographer

I kicked off my mini sessions season last night with this gorgeous family! This year I offered 2 dates for mini sessions - 20 minute sessions that are ideal for updating your photos for family and getting a great holiday card shot! This year they sold out in less than an hour so if you are interested for next year please let me know and I will get you on my list!

Three Sisters! - Lafayette Family Photographer

I love sessions when baby is 2-3 months old. They are out of the newborn phase (dont get me wrong I love true newborn shoots also!) and they are able to make eye contact and it’s do fun to see a family after everyone has adjusted to welcoming a new baby. These sisters were the sweetest and I had the most pleasant morning with this family! Just a sampling of the fun below :)

Summer Fun - Orinda Family Photographer

I love when I have the luxury of being able to see families grow and children develop! I first photographed this awesome family years ago and each time it is always so fun to see their love for one another and also how big these kids are getting! Here are a few of the 300+ images I loved from their session, enjoy! 

Backyard Nights - Lafayette Family Photographer

I always love when I get the opportunity to photograph multiple families individually within the same extended family! Back in 2015 I was lucky enough to meet this family and just last week was able to photograph her sister and her family right in their home backyard! 3 boys under 3 years old kept me on my feet but they were so adorable and such a pleasure to meet! Here is a sampling of some of the session! 

Morning in the Redwoods - Moraga Family Photographer

I had the best time photographing Elizabeth Colhoun and her beautiful family! We choose to go to the Oakland Redwoods for this session because I rarely photograph in the morning, but when I do I like to be at locations with lots of trees that filter the light during the summer! We held this session on her wedding anniversary as well as he son's 5th birthday! So fun for me and this family is always willing to have fun! Here are just a sampling of some of the beautiful images that graced my camera :) 


First Birthday Celebration! - Orinda Family Photographer

I always stress with clients the importance of holding a photo session 2 hours before the sun sets. This time of year that means about 6:30 depending on the location we photograph at. It was such a pleasure to photograph this family last week and I just love the way they love each other - it shows in the photos. Thank you Quan family for being so put together and beautiful!  


Summer Nights - Moraga Family Photographer

I had over 200 images in this gallery and so this is a small sample of some of my favorite ones! We shot this session in the evening and started at 6:30 when the light was starting to fall low into the hills. I adore this family and these 2 little girls were just the most loving and cute sisters! Almost booked for the remainder of 2018 so please contact me if you are interested in a session - happy summer everyone!
