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


I met the sweetest little family last weekend for a beach shoot.  I momentarily left the chaos that comes with mothering my two crazy (and awesome) boys to this calm, cute family.  I couldn’t get enough of how stinking cute Olivia is!  Just look at her gorgeous eyes and jet black hair…and those cheeks! Can […]

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

Mike + Lillian + Jonathan + Aviva ~ Alameda, California

I was definitely taking notes on their lego organization skills seeing as […]

Paul and Sarah Maternity


We had a pretty epic week last week.  We stayed in a big house on a lake with my in-laws in the middle of Missouri.  We witnessed the amazing total solar eclipse.  I watched Sebastian and his uncles play for hours in the lake.  We spent quality time as a family.  I also got to […]
