Magical Family Photo Session – Wood Line, San Francisco

The most rewarding part about what I do is the connection I make with each family I meet. If I ever won the lottery, I would photograph and film families free of charge—all while living my best goat-herding life. Totally realistic, right? Until then, I’ll be happily goofing around with my families. Here are some […]

Three Days Young

Oh gosh, it feels like ages since I’ve held a baby as itty bitty as three days old. The little fingers & toes, tufts of hair, soft whimpers, those early days of getting to know one another. It’s a privilege to be in this sacred space, and these sessions are such treasures for me as […]

Patiently Waiting

I’ve been channeling some positive juju to this family as they patiently wait to welcome their newest addition. I remember playing all these wild scenarios while waiting for my daughter to come along. Will it be like the movies? Will my water break and gush in the most public of places? Will I be able […]

Mini Sessions at the Morcom Rose Garden

Mini Sessions. They’re not for me … unless it’s for charity. For this session, 100% of proceeds were evenly split between two non-profits, CARE India and Palestine Children’s Relief Fund. It sold out in a record-breaking time of two days after I announced it. I’m so grateful for the compassionate hearts of my client-families. We […]

Dunham Lampoon’s Christmas – COVID Edition

You know it’s desperate times when a group of introverts break into comedy to spread joy. In lieu of gifts for my birthday this year, I asked my family if we could work on a project together. Because much of the holidays are spent with our loved ones in Michigan (who we’re missing terribly), it […]

Celebrating the Here and Now with Video

My heart’s been weighed down by the gravity of this year and I’ve been trying to find ways to show up for humanity and give some kind of solace to families as we navigate these tough times. Creating ways to respectfully capture these times have been tough, yet necessary because I believe that we’re making […]

Back in the Saddle-Family Photo Session in San Francisco

Ahhhhhhh…it feels so good to be out in the world, arts-ing and farts-ing (yes, I’m making up words) again. It looks a little different than it did before—I’m wearing a mask, keeping my distance, and gesturing grander than ever (think wacky wavy inflatable person). And this family is one that I’m very happy to be […]
