Ben + Angel + Rose


Even though the wind was blowing and the news was calling for “freezing temperatures” around the Bay Area, this family came out to the beach with their sweet 5 month old and rocked it out.  Don’t worry, we took several breaks to bundle and warm up Rose and even though it was windy and cold […]

Sebastian’s 4th birthday


I always really enjoy planning my kids birthday parties.  I usually plan for months.  I barely got this party put together in time but thankfully my parents were in town to help with all the details! 4 years ago (on the 9th) we were in the hospital with a newborn and the winter olympics had […]

Sebastian is 4


I have a four year old.  Those words are pretty hard to believe.  3 still feels like a baby.  4 feels old.  He’s tall and skinny.  His shorter hair cut and that light weight hoodie I bought him the other day just makes him look so grown up. I’m not going to lie.  This past […]

Sawyer’s 1st Birthday Party


Another successful Allex boy birthday party is in the books.   This time we were celebrating Sawyer’s 1st birthday. Here’s a look back to Sebastian’s 1st party.  I’m so glad a couple weeks ago (after talking myself out of it), I decided to go ahead and throw my special boy a big bash because you only turn […]

Sawyer 11 months


Disclaimer: Like the past several months I’m pretty late getting this post up…I had all the words written on time but finally got around to taking the picture today. Also this is the biggest smile I’ve gotten out of him in 11 months of these pictures.  Guess I should have had big brother helping all […]

Halloween 2017


So Thanksgiving is next week and I’m just now finally getting around to posting Halloween pictures.  This stay at home mom to two under 4 and working photographer (in the busy season) is no joke!  I’m getting clients their pictures back within a week of taking them, but that’s about all I’ve been able to […]

Life Lately


So much has been going on lately I figured I should do a little update post!   Photography- My business has really picked up and I’ve been basically booked solid all fall.  I have absolutely loved meeting so many new families, and taking so many great photos.  I’m so lucky to live in such a […]

Marc + Alissa + Laelle + Tovah + Boden


I love living in a ‘big’ city and Alameda is such a little gem.  (I put big in quotations because not everyone around here considers Alameda a big city…especially when we have San Francisco across the bay).  It’s the perfect place for families to live.  There are plenty of parks, the beach and cute little […]

Sawyer 10 months


It’s a good thing that Sawyer is almost one because I’m getting later and later with getting his monthly picture taken (and it’s getting harder and harder)!  I had this post written on time but I am about 3 weeks late with the picture. Just two more months until Sawyer is 1.  I better start […]
