  1. Rose Droll | SF Musician

    Date 17 Aug 2018
    On a rooftop with Rose Droll is really the only place worth being. When it comes to San Francisco’s self-made music scene, I’ve been privileged enough to bump elbows with the most down to earth, scrappy and overwhelmingly talented folks in town. Rose is no exception. With her sophomore record…

  2. Golden Gate Bridge | Baby Announcement

    Date 09 Apr 2018
    My nearest + dearest set of blondes have a bun in the oven! I was pleased as punch to celebrate with Quinn + Zach at their Golden Gate Bridge baby announcement shoot, during which there was dancing (duh) and giggles galore.  I cannot wait to meet their little lady, as she is just…

  3. Leaden Ceramics x Rachel McCord Creative

    Date 11 Mar 2018
    Towards the end of last year I collaborated with one of my very favorite makers, Sam Leaden to document her minimalistic & bold series of vessels You’ve gotta have Sam walk you through her process, as I’ll butcher it’s intricacies, but these grids are all formed by hand and continue to blow my

  4. Taylor Vick | Boy Scouts

    Date 06 Mar 2018
    My musically transcendent pal, Taylor Vick of San Francisco’s own Boy Scouts, is back at it again folks. She’s talented, there’s really no getting around it. Investigate her tunes thoroughly, you will find nothing but peace in your wee soul. I adore you, TayV - thanks for letting me make your portraits, always a…

  5. Cook Family | Oregon Woods Session

    Date 21 Oct 2017
    Kicking off Fall with my longest standing customers (who keep getting cuter) in Southern Oregon was a treat! Harmonicas, bare feet + explore-hungry boys makes for an ideal woodsy afternoon. Toss in a vintage Mustang and a couple’a pups - you’ve got yourself a dreamscape. Take a peek at my afternoon with the…

  6. Sam | Lands End Portraits

    Date 07 Sep 2017
    Everyone needs a Sam in their lives. My particular Sam, is the first to suggest celebratory drinks, host an elaborately themed party, get her clay-wielding hands dirty, and better yet - lend one of those hands to someone who needs it. She loves marking seasons changed as much as I do,…

  7. Rose Droll | SF Musician Portraits

    Date 16 Aug 2017
    I first met San Francisco musician Rose over the phone, accidentally giving her all the wrong directions and then continued to crack jokes the whole shoot to win her over. Turns out, she needed no winning over because she is just as genuine and gracious as she is bad ass. Give her a listen…

  8. SEND IT | Stinson Beach

    Date 05 Aug 2017
    A few months back I had the pleasure to tagging along with a bunch of wild-hearted souls to document a surf + paddle boarding weekend in Stinson Beach with Send It Foundation. The mission of the Send It Foundation is to inspire positivity, courage and gratitude in young adult cancer fighters through…

  9. Erica + baby Mateo | Napa Baby Shower

    Date 22 May 2017
    This floral-adorned pregnancy goddess, Erica, and I  go way back. To the days of teeny skirts + too much hairspray in the land of highschool cheerleading. We were easily the two punks running the most punishment laps for giggling too much (+ too loudly). So to say that I am overjoyed to cheer…

  10. Carolyn | Berkeley Home Session

    Date 21 Feb 2017
    I find people most enthralling when listening to their stories. Carolyn is full of stories (both spicy + sweet) and getting to know her through conversation & film, revealed she is equal parts powerhouse and warmth. We shot in her deliciously lived-in Berkeley home with a rich history and breathtaking light. The best kinds of…
