It's no secret now that I love photographing people in water. There's something about it which is ethereal and raw at the same time - something primal and beautiful and unfettered. People move differently in water, and the water moves itself, and it moves the...

You know you've heard it from your friends who have gotten married, or maybe even thought it yourself as you look at wedding photography options: "I have a friend who takes pictures"  or "my uncle has a camera" or even "my bff is a photographer"....

Since my very own wedding 7 years ago, I've been wanting to see the Nestldown wedding venue. It wasn't in the cards for our own wedding, so at the time I couldn't bring myself to even go look at it because I knew I would...

Ellie is a fellow local photographer (I'm in San Jose and she's in Morgan Hill but it's close enough) and a good friend of mine, so once in a while when we want to explore a new spot or try something out, we'll photograph each...

If you live in the Bay Area, you know that weather in January, especially at the beach, is pretty unpredictable (you know, as far as California beaches go). It could be 90 degrees and sunny inland and 60 and overcast on the coast. Or vice...

One of my (many many, far too many) goals for this year is to write more. This means journaling and creative writing, as well as writing more on this blog. Sometimes there are so many photos to share that I get caught up in sharing...

Haaapppy New Year everyone! I have had such a full season that I am still just getting my head straight - I have so many things I want to share! But FIRST before anything else, I want to announce that I am now offering Studio...

Mallory and Mike's wedding day started as they often do - with them getting ready with their closest friends and family members. They each sent each other gifts, and it was hard not to get emotional as they opened them and read each other's notes....

Happy Wednesday everyone! Today I get to share Ana Maria and Lucas's adorable San Jose engagement shoot. After some back and forth and trying on different ideas, we decided to do their engagement shoot in two parts. First, we went down the Guadalupe river trail...

I first met Becca and Sam over a year ago when they were visiting from the East Coast. We talked a lot about their wedding plans - how they wanted to intertwine Jewish wedding traditions into their otherwise nontraditional world views - and I was...

I have been *loving* having my clients answer some questions about their shoots ( of course, it's extra nice when they are so sweet :D ). Here is what Alie thought about her milk bath portrait, in her own words (and of course images of...

Stephanie and I tossed a bunch of different ideas back and forth for her and Nate's engagement session, but many of them were tough to reach on a weekday evening after work. Enter Saratoga! I had never done an engagement session there before, so it...
