    ME . . . Photography is my chosen career and lifelong fascination. I see beauty in everyone and am inspired by people, light, and nature. I have owned and operated my photo studio since 2000 specializing in maternity, newborns, babies, children, families, headshots, and events such as Bar and Bat Mitzvahs. I adore children of all ages and enjoy capturing their whimsical nature and many expressions. My award-winning photography has been featured nationally and internationally, and I have received annual awards for my client-centered service. I hold a degree in Photojournalism and used to work as a professional photojournalist as well as a wedding photographer.

What an a joy it was to photograph 6-days-young Kelsey and her beautiful family! She slept through her entire session while giving us several grins and smiles. She was so cooperative by letting us move her in and out of props, wraps, hats, and handing her back and forth between parents as they loved on her, all without rousing. As you can see from her adorable smiles she is a very content and happy newborn!

This little angel is blessed with some great genes — yummy cheeks, a darling smile, wavy tresses, and she will no doubt be of tall stature from her parents. Lucky girl! Kelsey’s adoring parents purchased a Grow With Me package which means that I will get to photograph her twice more to capture her milestone of turning six months-old when she’s able to sit unassisted, and again when she reaches her milestone of turning one year-old and/or walking.

    Miss Kelsey is God’s gift of a little angel, not to mention that she’s my 3rd cousin. Beautiful pictures. Can’t wait for 6th-month edition.

What a blast it was to photograph this beautiful family of six outdoors on such a gorgeous day in the Bay Area. This is their fifth photo session with me which means that I’ve had the honor of capturing them 1-2 times a year. You can check out their very first session with me HERE to see how much the children have grown.

The children are a sweet and lively bunch with lots of giggles and big smiles, and not to mention a sibling chemistry that was delightful to photograph. Their mom told me that the girls really look forward to their annual photo sessions. I do too! And didn’t she do an awesome job at coordinating the outfits, pairing solids with patterns, and lighter hues with darker ones? The parents are a darling couple together — I’m so glad that we carved out a little time while their children were snacking to take a beautiful portrait of them together showing their closeness.

I loved photographing this beautiful family recently! They were so full of energy and laughter — the ages of the children are 10, 8, 2, and 6 months-old who were game for whatever I suggested. As long as we kept their active two year-old engaged, she consistently gave us big genuine smiles.

It was fun to capture this moment in time for them that shows their many joyful expressions and how close knit they are. We met at the park for a morning session where we were met with some splendid Bay Area weather. I really enjoyed seeing how nurturing the big sister and brother are with their little brother and sister, and also how natural they were in front of my camera.

I feel so honored to have been chosen for this live TV interview that was aired this morning, and so very excited to share it with you! My family photography was featured while I shared tips and tricks on what makes a good photo, how to best prepare, and suggestions on how to dress for a portrait session.
