  1. Cook Family | Oregon Woods Session

    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…

  2. Sam | Lands End Portraits

    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…

  3. Rose Droll | SF Musician Portraits

    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…

  4. SEND IT | Stinson Beach

    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…

  5. Erica + baby Mateo | Napa Baby Shower

    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…

  6. Carolyn | Berkeley Home Session

    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…

  7. Taylor Vick SF Musician: Boy Scouts | Portrait Session

    11 Jan 2017
    Had to keep pinching myself during my shoot with San Francisco musician Taylor Vick of Boy Scouts because I’ve been waiting to get my lens on her for too many moons. As pure in her vocals as she is in the flesh, Taylor is truly the physical embodiment of calm…

  8. Moss Family | Lithia Park, Oregon

    07 Jan 2017
    Coming home for Christmas now includes my favorite Moss Family! The gift of memories in the form of family portraits is the one that keeps on giving. So thankful for the dear friends I have found in this crew + they keep bringing the heat year after year - newborns…

    I look forward to my annual Cook family shoots because those little blonde boys keep getting bigger and faster every year! Running around with new puppies + superhero capes in the rain is as adorable as it sounds, take a look!  Facebook | Instagram | Email | Book a Session

    22 Dec 2016
    Photographing a surprise birthday party is just as wild + fun as it sounds! The Mark Hopkins Intercontinental Hotel penthouse suite views, popping champagne, and a late night trolley car ride made for a perfect night in the city!  Check out the glamorous evening for yourself + get in touch…
