Sweet little Evelyn was the prettiest little cake smasher!  She calmly dug into that cake, ate some frosting, and then requested some milk to wash it down.  LOL!  Can't believe she's a year already, feels like yesterday I was taking her newborn photos!

The Ruggles

I've been photographing the Ruggles for a while now and this is the first time I was able to have all three boys available for the shoot-- so happy it worked out!

The Wiemers

This might just be one of my most favorite sessions ever!  Beautiful family, tons of personality, awesome location, and just a cool vibe for the shoot!  Love this family-- I've been photographing them since Hadley was a baby, and I've known Melissa for like a decade now (and she is a ton of fun to go wine tasting/antiquing with!  Speaking of which... which need to plan a date soon Melissa!

The Durkee & Linares Families

I love getting to see families again and again and again.  It's amazing how fast babies and little kids grow and change!  I've photographed 3 of the 4 of these babes as newborns.  Thank you Chanel and Leanne for allowing me to capture your beautiful families every year!

The Claxtons {AWAITING BABY}

I had such a fun time with Baisha and Kenny for their mini maternity session!  Such sweet people and obviously super photogenic too!  I loved that Baisha was down for walking through the creek-- these are definitely some of my favorite maternity photos.  Isn't she lovely?!  Can't wait to meet baby girl in a few weeks!


Meredith and Matt were the sweetest, most patient couple.  It was like 100 degrees the day of our shoot, and I made them walk all over the place.  LOL!  And to really throw me off... the area of the lake we were shooting at looked completely different from when I was there not even a week earlier... I'm talking there was all of a sudden no water anymore!  Crazy.  But we obviously made it work!  Can't wait to meet their little one!  Not too much longer!


I asked my friend Melissa to let me photograph her in the water and luckily she said yes!  And even more lucky was that we photographed in this little corner of the lake that was absolutely beautiful-- because when I went back to the same location 6 days later it was totally gone!  The water had receded so far that this whole area was gone!  Like twilight zone or something.  So sad.  But super happy we were there when we were because these are some of my all time favorite maternity photos!  Thank you Melissa and Tim for being good sports and hanging out in the water with me!  

The Ross Family

When my friends asked me to come up to Tahoe to photograph their family at their vacation home I couldn't resist!  Who can say "no" to Lake Tahoe?!  Thanks again for having me come up!  And thanks again to my friend Christina for going up there with me!  It was a nice break from reality!  :)

The Rubens Family

The Rubens family met me out at the lake to get some photos done before their oldest goes off to school/the military.  I don't photograph families with "big kids" too often, but I should definitely do it more-- it was far easier than chasing tiny children around!  LOL!

The Clarks

The Clarks are such a sweet family!  And little Anthony was such a ham-- he asked if he could make some very specific faces for his pictures and of course I said yes!  :)


Sweet little Aaron came all the way from the Bay Area to have his newborn session with me, which was such a compliment!  Loved working with this family-- such good people.  Aside from getting to cuddle tiny babies, meeting so many amazing people is my favorite part of this "job".  :)

Veena & Sashi {WAITING FOR BABY}

For those who don't know... I love ALL things baby... pregnancy, birth, newborns, nursing... ALL of it.  I love shooting maternity sessions, and then waiting for mom to contact me telling baby is here and ready for their newborn session.  I had such a fun time with Veena and Sashi during our session together-- hoping I get to meet their little one when they arrive!
