I met Emily during our first year of law school. In those 3 years, we went through a lot together (I was going to list some of those things, but I’m still slightly too traumatized to talk about it).
Emily is good peeps. She is perpetually happy and encouraging and beautiful, inside and out. Seriously. She’s super smart… and she’s gorgeous. Like, just look at her.
But she has a goofy, geeky side too… which probably explains why we are friends.
We attended eachother’s weddings and I am honored that she chose me to photograph her maternity portraits.
We met up on the gorgeous, sunny (was it windy?) beaches of Monterey. The timing was perfect. I found her and Eric, just strolling along the path as the sun set behind them. How lucky is that?
Eric and Emily are the perfect match. I am so happy to know both of them.
Emily and Eric, thank you for trusting me to photograph you during this exciting time in your lives. But more importantly, thank you, Emily, for being such a good friend throughout all of these years!
Not too long ago, I was privileged to photograph Baby N for her 1 year birthday. She is the daughter of real life heroes: a fire chief and a fire dispatcher.
Baby N is also a beauty, much like her mama and big sister.
Thinking of you guys!
I am so happy and honored to have met and photographed this gorgeous mama!
Baby P had a smash with his cake!
It was the perfect finish to Emily’s maternity portrait session.
I am so thankful to have met Stephanie. She is sweet and elegant and made a gorgeous mama-to-be. I can’t wait to see her again and meet her baby girl!
Baby G came into the studio for his newborn portrait session. He was the cutest, from his head to his little toes.
Wishing my dad, my husband, my clients, and all the incredible fathers a very happy Father’s Day this year!
Stephanie came into the studio this morning for her maternity portraits…
… and she was absolutely beautiful!

Liz and Tom were expecting a baby girl in about a month so they came into my studio for Liz’s maternity portrait session.
We started a bit early to have Liz’s make-up and hair done by Audrey, a wonderful local make-up artist and a new mom herself!
Liz was a dream to work with; she was organized, responsive to my wardrobe suggestions, and trusted me to try some new concepts I had been working on.
Oh, and she is simply beautiful!
I love this image of Tom because you can tell the love he has for his ladies.
Liz was so serene and lovely, awaiting her baby girl’s arrival. Pregnancy is such a finite and extraordinary time, which is why maternity portrait sessions hold a special place in my heart.
Liz and Tom, thank you so much for allowing me capture these moments for you and for your baby girl to look back on someday.
