A quickie best friends shoot with Sarah and Stephanie on a perfectly cloudy day. These two have been best friends since the first grade! Watching them support each other through life is so sweet.
Ashley + Richard
Intimate Napa Wedding.
Ashley + Richard had a beautiful intimate ceremony with just their families at The Celadon in Napa, CA. The event was filled with such love and happiness. This sweet family with their 1 year old daughter were glowing all afternoon! It was such a joy to witness.
Sarah wanted some portraits and head shots that she could use for her LinkedIn profile and Social Media profiles, and since we had both wanted to check out Fort Point after watching Vertigo, we decided to head up and take care of both to-do's in one trip! We got some great head shots, and played around with the cool, shadow filled structure doing a few additional moody portraits.
Stephanie + Bump
This quick maternity session with Stephanie was supposed to be just 1 of 2. We had planned to shoot a bit more, later on in her pregnancy, but thought it would be fun to start here since she had her employers' house available to use. Stephanie loved the large abstract painting that hung in the living room and knew she wanted to use it as a backdrop. And so we did! The painting provided such a cool texture and interesting geometric lines that contrasted her new, growing, motherly figure.
I am so grateful we did this shoot early on. Since Stephanie's sweet daughter, Rhea, decided to come a couple weeks early, we never got to take a second round of photos. So, I think the fact that we got this shoot in when we did was some sort of kismet.
Family portrait shoot at Felton Covered Bridge park.

Madame De Pompadour
This series was for an assignment I did for an Art History class in college. the assignment was to make an artistic response to a piece of art that we learned about in the course. I chose Francois Boucher's Madame De Pompadour and had my sister pose as the Marquise. It was such a fun little project! I plan to work on more like it.
Just a small selection of images from my June 2016 trip to Cuba to highlight the rich culture and beautiful people! These photos highlight less of what I saw and more of the amazing people that I travelled with or met along the way and the experiences that we shared.
