Next to my own daughter, Adelynn is probably my favorite little girl. This cutie pie is always smiling and her blue eyes are always SO bright! We met up on a windy June morning to get some 9 month photos. The wind worked for us, though - it blew her cute whispy hair around like a little blonde halo and it made it so we didn't roast in the summer heat. She was starting to stand at our shoot and now she's already toddling around - that will make her one year photos a bit more difficult in a couple months!

My poor California clients have been neglected for awhile - it feels like forever since I've been out there to see you and work with my Bay Area fans! But there is a light at the end of the tunnel, the dates are set, and the calendar is open - I'm coming back! 



I will be in the Bay Area and booking sessions from Saturday, October 4th thru Sunday, October 12th! There are two blocks of mini sessions and I will be booking full sessions every day in those 9 days. And I sure would love it if someone requested a beach session... I've been stuck in the desert for far too long now :)


Full sessions can be booked for any day and time, and the sun timing works out that we can still enjoy evening weeknight sessions as late as 5p. I now have two packages to chose from - check out the investment tab above to see all the details! All sessions are 1 hour and include at least 25 edited images on CD. 

Mini sessions are booked back to back at one location - this year, both blocks will be held at McClellan Ranch in Cupertino. Afternoon minis will be held on Sunday, October 5th, while morning minis will be on Saturday, October 11th. The PM minis are almost full, so contact me today if that date/time interests you. Minis are 20 minute sessions with 15-20 images on CD for $100. 


Dates are already filling up fast, so contact me today to book your spot!

For my final session of the spring season before maternity leave, I got to work with these awesome twins, Careena & Ryan, who are seniors this year! I worked with their parents last fall and was excited to meet more of their wonderful family. We had a great downtown shoot with lots of laughter and joking. Their younger sister snuck in for a couple shots and helped me pick some awesome spots to work. That and Careena has a major love of shoes - she brought along a whole backpack filled with shoes for a shot she had in mind... DEFINITELY my kind of girl! I would gladly have taken every pair she pulled out of that bag.



















I don't need to say "meet" for this family - the Teel Family has been featured here lots! Last time we checked in with them, the little lady was a newborn - now she's 6 months old, sitting, and getting mobile! Man, time flies! These guys are always such great models - we even got some of just mom & dad since they just celebrated their 10 year anniversary! 











Meet Tru! He just turned one and his grandma wanted photos to commemorate the big birthday! He was SO smiley and such a stud - especially when I used my powers of persuasion to keep his hat on. Hey, I've got two little boys of my own, I know some tricks :)






Meet the Hansen kids! When I first met this fun bunch, the little one was only 6 months old - now look at how big she is! They joined me for a mini session so that grandma could have some new photos - aren't they a cute bunch? I know grandma is pretty proud of her brood! 







Meet Kayla - she came out to our spring mini sessions so that she could get some photos in her cheerleading uniform. Isn't she gorgeous? I'm totally jealous of her flexibility - I can't do that even when I'm not 8 months pregnant! And matching Chucks, to boot.
