Petaluma family Portrait Photographer. Petaluma children’s portrait session. Jax and Ellie.

The energy level of the two of these kids is beyond any scope you can imagine.  Especially Jax.  He is truly remarkable and so full of personality that if I could bottle it I would be a billionaire.  Cutest family ever…just love Annie to pieces.

 

Bat Mitzvah Photographer Congregation Kol Shofar Tiburon, CA. Marin Bar and Bat Mitzvah photographer. Lily.

Just look at the love between these two siblings.  Lily had her Bat Mitzvah rehearsal at Congregation Kol Shofar in Tiburon, CA and her big party is coming up soon!  She’s such a sweet girl and I am so excited to watch her have the time of her life with her family and friends. 

Wedgwood Wedding Photographer Oakland, CA wedding photographer. Sheneesha and Marc

Love how sweet Marc and Sheneesha were with each other.  This reception went off with the dancing and I couldn’t have had more fun with all the funk and blues.  Their reception and ceremony was held at The Wedgewood Wedding and Banquet Center in Oakland, CA and it couldn’t have been more perfect.  Wishing these two much love and babies in their future.

San Francisco Wedding Photographer. Petaluma Photographer. Chrissy Fields, San Francisco. Murali and Prista.

So sometimes the internet can work in mysterious ways and Murali and Prista found my work online from Singapore and wanted to do an engagement session while they were in San Francisco.  We had a blast together and I hope they are snuggled as two bugs in a rug back in Singapore.  xoxo

Marin Corporate Headshot Photographer. San Anselmo. Petaluma Photographer. Michelle.

Shot Michelle’s corporate headshots in San Anselmo and managed to find some nice light and weather in these dreary days.

Petaluma newborn portrait photographer. Sonoma newborn Photographer session. Leilani.

I’m pretty sure this might be the most alert infant I have ever encountered so I’m thinking that Miss Leilani might work for NASA in the next 16 years. I felt like she was staring into my soul through the lens.  And….I just couldn’t be happier for Stephanie and Will.  I’m lucky enough to call Stephanie a friend and I couldn’t be happier for them.  Here’s to lots of cuddle time for you all. xoxo

 

Petaluma Family and Children’s Portait Photographer. The Deering Family Portrait Session. Sonoma County.

Look at this gorgeous family and I just love them to pieces!  The Deerings show up at my house on a rainy afternoon and we start off inside as it pours down on us.  Then there is a lapse in the downpour and we run around in the field behind mi case.  Much fun ensues with their new puppy, Ember!  Outdoor photography on a rainy day in Petaluma, CA is just good ole country living!  

San Francisco Fashion and Editorial Photographer. Bay Area Commercial Fashion Photographer. Olori Luxury African Leather Handbags.

When you get a super crew like this one your bound to have a good time!  Everyone brought their A game a few days before Christmas for this shoot.  We tromped all over Hayes Valley in San Francisco and the results are in the pudding as they say.  Thank you Tomedai for trusting me with your handbag line!

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!
