I’m a bi-coastal photographer, from CA to PA, and fan of unposed, giddy-in-love, melt-my-lenses-editorial-style moments … oh, and a t-shirts and jeans.
A trend I’m seeing a lot in the past few years is families booking extended family sessions. Many times, the last portrait you have of your entire family is from a wedding. This family shared that same story and they decided to change that while enjoying a beautiful day together in Tahoe. Including extended family […]
The winter “off season” means a slowed pace and more time for exploring. This place, Lake Tahoe, is one of the most photographed locations on the planet for a reason. That’s a made up claim – I’m simply going by the amount of people pulled over taking pictures any time I’m driving. There are a lot! […]
If this session doesn’t make you smile, you need to go do some soul searching. When I arrive to a newborn shoot, there are a few loose plans but really, I like to let things just happen. This was a slam dunk example of how letting big sister do her thing and jump in when […]
Nesting at home during those early days with a newborn is a precious and fleeting period of time. The freshly made nursery, awaiting baby’s arrival. The sweet decor that, let’s be honest, is really for us mom’s to have as a sanctuary of baby love. The Hoffman’s brought baby #2 home and this is […]
Heaven gained another angel and it’s with a heavy heart that I post this. A single mom to two wonderful girls, Sarah Herndon remained positive and such a bright light of hope in her four year battle with cancer. Sarah’s girls need our help now, as they push forward in their new normal, […]
If you’ve browsed my website, you’ll recognize these two! It’s always exciting to get word that a past bride and groom are expecting. Especially when Sarah is a member of a family I’ve been photographing for years. I realize my ultimate role is to take pictures, but these are such intimate and historic moments in […]
It’s pretty awesome what is possible in 15 minutes. For me, it’s a great exercise in efficiency. For families, it’s a fast-paced way to get an easy update. When the kiddos are this sweet and happy, it’s surely a win-win! Every fall I offer 10-15 minute mini-sessions for the upcoming holiday season. Feel free […]
The Rahe Family has been in my world since 2009, when we met about their wedding and we quickly found we had way more in common than we had thought! Cindy, an uber- creative baker extraordinaire, is also the talent behind www.hungrygirlporvida.com, a blog with many drool-worthy recipes and imagery to match! She was an […]
The Burtons wanted one last session in the Sierra Mountains before they made their big move north to Oregon. I’ve been along for many new chapters in their life, from Bridget and Scott’s engagement in 2008 to the family portraits as their posse grew. Each time produces images so genuine to who they are and […]
Follow along for more shoots, education,
and--naturally--some very awesome people.
