  1. Jess | Ocean Beach Portrait Session

    25 Dec 2018

    My friend Jess gave herself the BEST birthday present (in my opinion) in the form of a shoot on the beach! This woman loves everyone around her so well and it was such an honor to make her portraits and reflect a bit of that love right back to her…


  2. Rose Droll | SF Musician

    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…


  3. Golden Gate Bridge | Baby Announcement

    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…


  4. 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…


  5. 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…


  6. 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. Andrea’s Surprise Birthday! | Mark Hopkins Intercontinental Hotel

    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…


  9. Angeles Portraits | Palace of Fine Arts

    22 Dec 2016

    It’s not a New Years Resolution if you make the choice to self-improve before the year ends, right?! Right.  Spruce up your portfolio, LinkedIn or social platforms to start the year off with a bang! Head shots don’t always have to be against a sad white wall under sad florescent…


  10. 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…


  11. 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…


  12. 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…


  13. 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…


  14. 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…

  19. Sutro Baths

    15 Jul 2015

    Sutro Baths, a serene wanderland (yes, wander not wonder). Wandering, climbing rocks, letting the expanse of the sea and the brevity of negative space shake your perspective if only for a moment is nothing short of calming. And then maybe you meet Francis Chan who’s making a video when walking…


  20. My Dear Brooke

    14 Jul 2015

    Digging through my hard drive always unearths little treasures I’ve tucked away and forgotten about I dusted off these quick shots of a darling girl I am thrilled to know & honored to call friend. It was a perfect Portland afternoon when we celebrated her birthday over coffee and pretty…


  21. Prints & pals

    02 Jul 2015

    Sorting through prints is great, but whiskey & jacuzzi time with your client/pal after you deliver said prints - is really great. Nothing like being a weekday warrior to make it through the lull of an intermittent week! Facebook | Instagram | Tumblr | Email 


  22. Father’s Day

    22 Jun 2015

    As far as father’s go, mine is a total winner Not only does he lead a life of boldness & humility with incredible flair, but he sparked my love for photography at an early age. He gave me my first camera, helped build me a darkroom in our garage in…


  23. My Darling Niece | Brystal

    22 Jun 2015

    The newest member of the McCord tribe is already such a heartbreaker. The first babygirl of ours is the sweetest addition to our growing family & I’m still pinching myself that I’m her aunt! It’s an incredible privilege to love such a tiny person so deeply. It was my honor…

    So pleased to have my first shoot in the city be with my dear friend & soon to be doctor, Elise! She trekked up hills, stood her ground through blustery winds and glittered through Karl the fog brilliantly! Would you believe this is her first time in front of a…
