This Marin newborn session was very special for me because Baby Enzo is the first child of my childhood friend, Steven. He and his lovely wife, Elizabeth, are thrilled to pieces with this bundle of joy. It’s so exciting to witness such close friends become parents. Their town of San Rafael also looks like the perfect town to raise a baby. Congratulations!
Jennifer and I met in college, many years ago, in the photojournalism department of San Francisco State University. We immediately bonded over our love of documentary photography and the emotional impact of the craft. She went on to land a position as staff photographer at the Times-Picayune in New Orleans. Her impact there was powerful, leaving insightful photo essays of this storied town.
Later, she branched out and started her own successful boutique photography business, Twirl, in New Orleans. If you travel to the Big Easy, you MUST book a session with her, she’s amazing. She’s truly incorporated her documentary and artistic eye in to her portraits and weddings to create timeless images for her clients. I was lucky enough to visit her last month and do a fun family maternity session ,as they are expecting their second child, soon. Her beautiful daughter, Magnolia, was a dream subject, her fabulous dresses against the colorful walls and varied textures of New Orleans was inspiring. Mark is a great guy and is obviously in love with his beautiful women. What a great city to photograph in and I am so excited for this family’s new arrival!

Newborn portraits are always so delicious to make. Why do I always use adjectives that describe food when thinking of babies? Becuase they are so yummy and edible! Ok, back to the point. I met Baby Noah at his home and got to document some very precious moments between he and his wonderful parents. I always photograph in my clients home. It’s much easier for them and I love photographing moments that really take place in the day of a family. Do people have to clean-up before I arrive? Heavens no! You just had a baby. Wrinkled sheets and dogs on the bed are my idea of great pictures. I want the baby one day to grow-up and see where he/she was raised, what the home looked like, all the wonderful details of a couple living with a new baby. As you can see, Noah is adorable. I love newborn quizzacle expressions. Thank you again to Noah’s parents!

Camille and Ryan have been wonderful clients of mine since they were first engaged. Now we get to add on Baby Myles to the sessions! Myles has added so much joy to this family. We’ve done his newborn and 6-month session and now see him through his first birthday. We chose to do this family portrait session in Palo Alto, with its beautiful weather and striking architecture. It’s such a privilege for me to document all this love!

Stacey is a personal friend and fabulous Bay Area event and wedding planner, owner of Stacey and Company.Just by looking at how she coordinated her family’s wardrobe and style for the photo shoot, you can see her attention to detail. I had the privilege of photographing her with her handsome husband and two vivacious daughters in Berkeley. It was also the perfect occasion for her to announce that she is expecting her THIRD child! Congratulations! Can’t wait for next year’s session, with a precious new addition to the family.
