Andrew + Erin ~ Baker Beach, California


  Andrew and Erin got married this year back home in Kansas City.  Usually couples don’t have a session a few months after their wedding, but they wanted some photos from where they live.  The newlyweds choose the most iconic place in San Francisco to take their photos, Baker beach.  This was my first time […]

Alvin + Cassie + Olivia ~ Alameda, California

Little Natan is just a ball of sweet energy!  He’s so much […]
