When these two contacted me to schedule a maternity and family session, they told me they wanted epic. Not the traditional shots, but something more magical that would capture their family with both grand views and sweet in-between moments. Since they couldn't do their traditional trip to Hawaii to take annual photos, we picked this epic location in San Francisco that was the perfect backdrop for exactly what they wanted.

It's finally fall, which is the perfect time to pull out all the cozy sweaters and boots! This sweet family adventured with me to the redwoods, the perfect place to capture moments with their little one. He loved playing in the woods and even find a secret little tree tunnel! Check out the rest of their Bay Area redwood family session below.
Having just moved to San Jose, S + D wanted to capture their engagement session in the Bay Area to document their new home. The redwood trees perfectly fit their vibe, so I recommended to them one of my favorite local gems. And how cool are their all-black outfits?! Check out their redwood engagement and family session below!
The redwoods have always been a favorite place of mine, and I loved getting to show this sweet family of 3 one of my favorite hidden gems in the Bay Area! With a few boardwalks to explore (and plenty of distractions to keep their little one amused), it was the perfect spot to capture candid moments of them just playing and spending time together. Check out the rest of their family session below!
S + N were back for round two to capture their sweet family of 5! With all of the girls a year older, their energy could barely be contained as they ran around, chasing each other down the path and climbing into the trees. We even caught sight of two deer as we hiked down the path. Check out the rest of their family session below!
For two adventurous souls who hiked through Patagonia just a few months prior, there was no doubt in their mind that capturing such a special time in their lives had to be adventurous as well. Having shared some of their favorite memories by the ocean - including getting married on the Sonoma County coast - we knew that the Marin coast was the perfect place to start their maternity session, followed by their favorite trail on Mt. Tamalpais. When the sun set a bit sooner than we expected, they didn't hesitate for a moment to run along the ridge until we caught the last glimpse of the sunset. And it was absolutely worth it! Check out the rest of their dreamy coastal and mountain maternity session below!
We found the most beautiful redwoods spot in the South Bay to capture this family's session! Beacon their fur baby had the best time exploring (maybe a bit too much fun - we spent quite a bit of time calling him back!) while we walked along the boardwalk and captured sweet moments with this family of 3. Check out the rest of their session below!
J proposed to M here last year, so it only made sense to capture their engagement session here. When they were met with a beautiful surprise the same time they had originally planned to get married at SF City Hall, they turned their engagement to a maternity session. Congratulations M + J!!
After weeks of rain, the skies finally parted for these two to capture H's maternity session. They celebrated the upcoming birth of their first child amongst the iconic California redwoods in the Bay Area, and then a few months later I got to meet their sweet baby in their beautiful home! Check out the rest of H + G's maternity and newborn sessions below!
This sweet family of five adventured with me to the hills of San Jose for a sunset family session to capture all the silly little things that make S + N love their girls so much. It wasn't easy wrangling them all for a family photo, but the girls were absolutely adorable as they ran around mom and dad and big sister kept the little ones in check.
