Petaluma Marriage Proposal, engagement and wedding photographer. Sonoma County Proposal. Matthew and Jackie.

Such a fantastic morning as I was lucky enough to hide and be a “spy”  my other secret favorite profession.  Matthew called to say he was going to propose to his longterm (that’s 9 years) , Jackie, at Gravity Hill above Petaluma in Penngrove.  So he sent me a pin and I met him on the top of the hill and there is literally nowhere to hide.  So I get out of the car which my camera and my huge 200 mm lens and ask, “Do you know what valley that is?  I was hired by a real estate company to take a photo of a certain valley.”  Then, I introduced myself to make sure indeed, This was Matthew and Jackie.  It most certainly was.  So….I sauntered up the hill and pretended to take photos of the landscapes when Matthew bent down on one knee and popped the question.  Of course she said yes….Look at those in love, happy faces.  Congratulations Matthew and Jackie!

Family and Childrens Portrait photographer in Petaluma, Dillion Beach. Lifestyle and documentary. Sonoma, Sebastopol, Marin, Healdsburg.The Reusers

Family portraits for the holidays shot in Dillon Beach, Sonoma County with the awesome Reuser Family.  They were up for anything!  I loved how they all got barefoot and took their family portraits in the ocean.  They also wanted to include their family dog in their holiday photographs so he got in them as well!  We took family photos at sunset where their reflections were so definitive in these family portraits.  I love Sonoma Country for it’s sunsets and Dillion Beach is a great location to have them.  They even allow dogs!

Senior Portrait Photographer. Petaluma, Sonoma County.

Katie’s senior portraits were shot in the countryside of Petaluma and in Valley Ford. Taking senior portraits are really fun to be artistic using natural light. It’s a senior’s chance to be a model for the day so we have fun making the senior portrait images look editorial and fashion forward as well.  Senior portraiture is something you have a lifetime to reflect on as it’s a big landmark in your life!  Invest in your senior portraits as these become family heirlooms!
