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.
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
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
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
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.

A lot of photographers claim to understand Beloved Photography… Read More
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
A couple of years back, the buzzword in the photography scene was “Photo Fusion.” Since all the new DSLR cameras were coming out with video functions, photographers had been trying to jump on this bandwagon of merging photography and video. It was being called Photo Fusion, I suppose out of the desire to market it… Read More
I was excited to shoot Lucile and Dustin’s wedding last September 1. We had a great engagement session, and I just knew they would bring the same energy and quirkiness to their big day. Lucille and Dustin are an awesome couple with a casual yin-yang dynamic. While Lucille’s a huggable little bundle of energy, Dustin… Read More
The wedding industry’s top vendors took pause from the busy wedding season to attend a networking party at the Infusion Lounge last August 8. Put together by the Jutta Lammerts of A Day Like No Other, the party was a tribute to art icon Andy Warhol whose birthday was celebrated on August 6. So out… Read More
