This was such a sweet session. I shot Victoria’s senior pictures over 5 years ago, so getting to see her again and have her back in front of my camera was an honor. She trusted me when I was a newbie with photography and still is trusting me now as my style of my art […]

I wanted to try something different. Shooting half a session with flash and shooting half a session at a burger place that is typically busy. I like to challenge myself to find the best light and spots to shoot even when there are many challenges that could arise. For the Gott’s shoot I spotted a […]

Kjell & Eleanor adventured with us to the redwoods, tennis courts, a YMCA and a local in-n-out. These two spent the past 8 months on the road seeing new places and trying new things (like salsa dancing!). I lived through them for a little bit last night as I heard some memorable stories from places […]

We adventured to the coast for a photoshoot and little did she know Jacob was about ready to proposal to her mid way through the shoot. It was a rare and beautiful night in Bodega Bay with minimal wind and no fog. It was a perfect night for a proposal and celebration!

This is the first year in 6.5 years of owning my own business, that I am combining two senior classes for this years senior rep shoot. Last years senior rep shoot got postponed due to the pandemic, so we are now doing it this year. I also wanted to add the class of 2022 to […]

First of all, I have never walked onto the Golden Gate Bridge before and now I have with some of my best friends all while eating paella. It was a dream come true to shoot these guys and to shoot for Paella Guy too! Stacy and Miguel you guys have such an inspiring love story […]

I met Hayley via social media when I was reaching out to her for a fun creative shoot a while back. I had no idea at that point we would become friends and I would shoot their wedding someday. It was truly an honor and I still have to pinch myself that I got to […]

This bridal session was for my branding video shoot coming later this year. I shot Jennea & Andreas wedding 3 years ago so it was so fun to have them model as newlyweds once again on camera. We climbed rocks, braved the cold winds and ate some chicken & waffles. I cannot thank you all […]

We met through mutual friends on Instagram. Seriously these two were down to drive to the desert mid-week and make some magic in some intense wind/cold conditions. They brought Ho-Ho’s to eat and Logan even was a champ through not only sitting once on a cactus, but twice on accident. Joshua Tree never fails me […]

I met Sandra through my close friend Chelsea, a couple years back. I was searching for a couple to do a shoot on a rooftop in San Fransisco and they said yes! Since then Sandra and I have become friends. They modeled for me again last year in Mendocino and it was by far one […]
