Open Studio 2015!
So…this is happening! In Nine Days. *THIS* is happening! And I can’t be more thrilled and nervous in my whole life. The concept is simple. I’ve never been a fan of Valentine’s Day. Although I do enjoy chocolate, flowers and all the thrills, love doesn’t have to be expressed with just that. And only once… Read More

Joanne + Frank | San Francisco City Hall Wedding
I never tire of shooting at San Francisco City Hall. I get lost in its ceilings, the delicious light and stately architecture. Add two people madly in love and it becomes a paean to marriage, loyalty and happily-ever-afters.
Ruby + Marcus | Beloved Engagement Session San Francisco
Sometimes life is not fair. Some people have it all: brains, looks, killer abs, style, a well-stamped passport, degrees from top-notch universities, meaningful jobs and perfect homes. Take Ruby and Marcus, for example. They got their act together! They are so frigging perfect separately, and together. And if they weren’t the nicest people in the world,… Read More
Photo Booth Pic of Dad + Us, 1980
I knew my dad for 7.5 years, but he lives on in my heart. Things I remember about him. 1. He loved his kids and wanted more. 2. He loved to laugh. And did so, loudly. 3. He would spontaneously grab my mom in the kitchen, dip her and plant a kiss on her. We’d watch… Read More
P Family | Joaquin Miller Park | Belong Family Mini-Session
What! November 16! The year is flying by so quickly. I wish I had a pensieve (hello Harry Potter fans!) so I could store my collective memories and access them as desired. Good thing we have photography and mini-sessions instead to capture these beautiful autumn days and images of family love. My 440 Fall Mini-sessions… Read More
S Family | Joaquin Miller Park | Belong Mini-Session
The S Family was so amazingly warm and kind to each other, it’s difficult not to get awesome photos of them. And it was a perfect November morning, it can’t get any better than this. Dylan and Bryce. Such handsome kids. Future heart-breakers, I’m sure.
I'm a Badge-toting Beloved Photographer!
I’m really stoked that I received my Beloved certification badges from the Beloved Collective. I’ve written about the training before, but getting the email from the organizers reminds me that I am part of an exclusive group of professional photographers who offer this unique, experimental technique. A lot of photographers claim to understand Beloved Photography… Read More
The Fall 440 Sessions Are Here!
Autumn is sneaking through the backdoor again! With so many warm days, it’s hard to believe that the months have slipped away. I don’t want to let go of my summer reveries. It’s no use denying the obvious, though: the kids are back in school, baseball is in post-season, and pumpkins are becoming ubiquitous. Time… Read More
