San Francisco In-Home Session {Inner Richmond}

It’s always so wonderful when a former client refers a new client and you feel like you made a new friend. My in-home lifestyle family sessions are scheduled for 2 hours to allow for breaks and time for baby to feed and change clothes etc. But I always end up chatting with my clients after the session as I am collecting my gear and I enjoy that part just as much as taking the photos. I just love getting to know people and it’s one of the reasons I love photographing families in their home, where they are most comfortable.

This session took place on a beautiful Saturday morning in the inner Richmond district of San Francisco. The couple’s apartment was so beautifully decorated and the whole space was super inviting. I could have taken so many more detail shots of the apartment but the baby stole the show and we documented all her cuteness to include her smiles, giggles, fingers, and toes. Her nursery was curated by her talented mama and deserves to be in a magazine.

I was so happy to hear that they had 2 cats and wants dot include them in the shoot. Animals always make a house a home and it was so fun to capture them hanging out in their space and on the cat scratchers (they were handmade by mama and they were just perfect!). It really was hard to narrow down the pictures to share because I had so many favorites. Keep all the in-home sessions coming my way…I’m hooked!

Lifestyle Business Branding Session {Novato, California}

I have been on a roll with photographing flower farmers and recently I got to capture a local floral designer in her studio. Marie of Laurel and Vine Floral Design is a talented designer specializing in weddings and special events. She recently redesigned her website and it’s so beautiful! She has such a fun and warm personality and I can see why her brides give her glowing reviews. We clicked right away and had a super fun business branding session. I love that her two kittens made an appearance in some of the shots. If you are a business owner and want to get some updated headshots or lifestyle portraits to use on your website or for social media give me a call. I can tailor your session to meet your needs and take photos that capture your personality.

Fall Family Session {Marin County Family Photographer}

When I first met Molly for coffee (we both actually ordered tea) we became friends instantly. We are both fairly new to Novato and discovered we have so much in common. She is an amazing photographer and also a Lularoe business owner. So when she asked me to photograph her family, I was a little nervous but also so excited. We met up in a beautiful open space in Novato and the session was magical. Molly was dressed in Lularoe and looked amazing and her hubby and boys were perfectly styled too. Her family is beyond adorable and we captured them snuggling, dancing under the oak trees, and exploring. I am so happy Molly trusted me to document her family and an thankful that a new friendship has blossomed. 

(Molly introduced me to the Lularoe brand and the clothes are so cute and comfortable. You can check out her page her if you want to get in touch with her and be notified of upcoming open houses:
