Sarah is a friend of mine that came to me recently for business headshots. She is putting together her own Home Organization business (and who doesn’t need that!) and wanted to start off right with some headshots.

Whether you are a blogger, small business owner, or even sell through Mary Kay, Thirty-One, or other direct sales…contact me! There is a custom package just for you! Need a few or a lot? Doesn’t matter. I can help:)



I had the great joy of photographing this little one soon after I did her momma’s maternity pictures! I didn’t get to blog her in time so I figured I would put them all together.

We had a blast at William Land Park with her maternity photos and did a variety of images she really wanted. I am totally open to requests so of course I had fun with it as well.

Her sweet family coordinated their clothing really well – and they loved on momma the whole time.

Flip the coin a couple months of anticipation later, Elia was born! She is all girl and I had a great time with posing her! She was asleep for when I wanted her to be and awake at the end. I find that summer babies are sleepier because of the lovely warm weather we get. It makes it easy for me:)I have had so many sleepy babies this summer!

Enjoy the images and congrats to Melissa and your family!





I met Ryan and Lauren together in a Starbucks in Cupertino after she inquired about my services. I was excited to meet them and talk to them about their big day! When they chose me I was thrilled!

After their engagement photos at a park in Cupertino, the countdown began for the big day! Even though I moved away to Sacramento, it didn’t matter since I do weddings all over California:)

Before the wedding, she had set out to get in shape for the wedding. Usually this means, go to the gym a few times, get tone, etc, etc. But Lauren dedicated herself – and lost an amazing 70 pounds!! She looks amazing but not only that, she has more energy and her health is imporoved! I was so proud of her and it was such an awesome sight for family and friends that haven’t seen her in a while! That was a grand reveal for sure!

Ryan and Lauren are truly meant for each other. They balance each other out so well and they realize this – Ryan is the gentle soul and she is the social go-getter. I always believe that opposites do attract because two opposites make a complete whole and it just works together. In marriage, you need strengths to fill the other’s weaknesses…and vise versa. Once you realize this, you can have compassion on each others weakness and fall in love even more.

It’s just like a company needing different employees with different strengths. If all employees were the same robot of a person, there would be something missing.

I loved their details and how they arranged everything at Los Gatos Lodge. The food was great and the staff were very kind and accomodating.

I just adored the candids I captured from this wedding. So sweet. Their family is so tight knit.

Enjoy these images and huge thanks to the vendors a part of this wedding!

Stop it with this! This little man was so amazing during our shoot I could just squeal! I think I even did, too!

His daddy is a duck hunter that wanted to incorporate some props into the shoot. How awesome and unique is that?? I love it when the parents want to do this because it adds such character and uniqueness to their photos!

We did some more “lifestyle” photos for their mommy and daddy shots. If you don’t prefer the black background, we can always have some fun with these natural shots on your bed. It’s almost like real life. I remember many hours just laying in bed staring at my sleeping newborns…I miss those days!

I brought all the props for this shoot and he moved with such ease and was comfortable the whole time. He was actually born with his legs at his head so those little legs are not uncomfortable at all!
