  1. Big Sur 2018

    29 Nov 2018

    This summer (oh sorry, San Francisco summer - so, mid-October) I went on a quick weekend trip to Big Sir for the cute boys, fast bikes + breathtaking views… so sue me. I finally understand what all the fuss is about, Big Sur is dreamy as heck FACEBOOK | INSTAGRAM…


  2. Taylor Vick | Boy Scouts

    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…


  3. 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…


  4. 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…


  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. 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…


  7. 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…


  8. Wilbur Family | East Bay Family Session

    11 Nov 2016

    Cozy colors, fall foliage & running after little kiddos at golden hour is absolutely my favorite way to spend a Saturday! Getting to work with a fun family like the Wilbur clan made for a seamless family portrait session in Pleasanton at Alviso Adobe Community Park! A family who dabs…


  9. Baker Family Mini Session

    10 Nov 2016

    The last time I saw my dear pal Shannon and her clan, tiny Lola was swaddled up like a sleepy little burrito. Now she’s teaching me about spiders, giving the best hugs & makes me nearly cry with her exuberance, sweetness & sass Friendships caught on film are even better…


  10. Studio Visit with Tamara White

    22 Aug 2016

    There are few things more valuable than observing an artist at work and discovering intricacies of process first hand. I was fortunate enough to be warmly welcomed into the cozy Berkeley studio of mixed media visual artist, Tamara White for an inside scoop! Her work is just as lovely as…


  11. Pizza, my heart!

    19 Aug 2016

    Summertime calls for nights with friends, dinners made by hand & enjoying it all while the sun goes down on the city. Pizza, is clearly the soulmate of so many of us - it was time it had a little visual lovenote written to it before rapid consumption, right? Right…


  12. Cozy Family Session at Home | The Johnson’s

    20 Jul 2016

    New families always give me chills and giggles & my girl Hannah is building a beautiful one, starting off first with little miss Lena Violet.  It’s so bizarre to see the sweet friend you used to pull all nighters with bonding over photoshop and vending machine snacks in undergrad, to…


  13. McBeach House

    05 Jul 2016

    Being surrounded by as many of my McCord’s as possible is always my happiest place & I hustle to make it happen any chance I get! Continually thankful for these people who I get to call home, regardless of what our addresses might be. Turns out our an annual Oregon…


  14. Pinnacles National Park | 120mm Film

    01 Jun 2016

    Getting out of the city is high-priority since I memorized my street’s bus schedule purely by sound far too easily. Pinnacles National Park is a little woodland gem tucked away a few hours south of the city. On second thought, hand holding my Yashica film camera 3.5f, without a tripod, …


  15. Barista Faire | Blue Bottle Coffee

    09 May 2016

    My home Blue Bottle cafe, Sansome in the Financial District of San Francisco, hosted a Barista Faire for its Northern California Baristas! We had live music, prizes, access to various department heads within the company, learn about upcoming products, try a triangulation cupping and throw-down in a friendly latte art…


  16. San Luis Obispo | Weekend Away

    23 Apr 2016

    My sweet pal Hannah now has a sweet new baby as of this week (!) A few weeks ago I got to jet out to San Luis Obispo to stroll around, make breakfast, buy matching house plants, play Yahtzee & I guessss you could say take some maternity shots? Maternity…


  17. The light on Haight Street

    15 Mar 2016

    Sometimes you just have to strike when the golden hour light is hot, ya know?! My sweet pal MJ helped me hang my curtains in my new place today & then we got a little lost in them, naturally.  It feels good to make some new casual work in my…


  18. Beneath the Orange Tree

    03 Mar 2016

    Finding myself filled with so much gratitude to be able to try my hand in writing & directing this short film in stride with Nick Chavez, one of my best friends, a part of his ‘Be My Year’ film project. He’s spearheading a quest to make 12 short films this…


  19. Friendship & filmship

    09 Feb 2016

    Best friend isn’t a word I like to use loosely because I think I misuse it how some people misuse the word literally. I literally waited in traffic for 6hrs, that kid literally looks 12 (although he is probably 25), I could literally eat 10 more slices of pizza, you…


  20. Give the gift of visual art!

    31 Dec 2015

    Sometimes it takes all year to make work you’re thrilled about & this year I gifted mine to my sweet family. Keep an eye out for more of my dabbling with illustrated type and portraits! Cheers to many more creative years for you all, my friends Are you in the…


  21. A year in Portraits | 2015

    28 Dec 2015

    2015 has been full of many things - starting in Portland & ending in San Francisco with new jobs, friends, addresses & lots of steep learning curves. But as far as my work goes, it has been full of fantastic people willing to spend their time in front of my…


  22. My Nephew Max

    22 Oct 2015

    Goodness, you would think that after two nephews & a niece I would be more than used to the aunthood process, but I am floored by this fella. Already a heavyweight heartbreaker and a total bundle of delightful little wiggles & warmth. Ugh - man Max, you’re the best. Much…


  23. Mallorey | South Park, San Francisco Portraits

    21 Oct 2015

    Hunting for good light with a good friend makes for a pretty perfect afternoon. Mallorey is one of the best gals I know & to have a confidant like her in the city makes my life a whole lot sweeter. Can’t wait to see what you’ll tackle next, sisterfriend Get…


  24. Beach Baby-to-be | Oregon Coast Maternity Session

    24 Sep 2015

    A quick family weekend at the Oregon Coast was made complete with a maternity shoot of my gorgeous expecting sister! There’s nothing more fun that documenting my growing family – I’m over the moon for my sister, brother-in-law & tiny nephew on the way Need a maternity shoot of your…


  25. The Cook Boys | Brother Shoot

    18 Sep 2015

    Besides my own nephews, these are the only other tiny blondes to let me follow them around with my camera since they were just months old! Molly & Jeff have some pretty dashing men on their hands and it’s been a treat to document their family over the years. So…
