For those of you doing family portrait mini sessions in Belmont with me this fall, and took a risk on an unknown location, take note — this spot is gorgeous!!! I LOVED the beautiful, golden light bouncing around this little gem of a spot. I’m super excited to share it with you guys. I arrived to my session early as usual to scope out where we should focus our time. Usually on these walks I don’t take my blankets with me, because it’s easier to move around. When I got back to my car and started pulling everything out, I did something I never have before — slammed the hatchback trunk door straight on my face. Yeah, NOT a smart[…]See more from “Belmont Family Portrait Photographer: Ow!”

The Bay Area is such a remarkable place. It is so incredibly versatile, and so incredibly beautiful. On my hikes around the Peninsula, I discover so many spots that would be great for photography sessions. But, the fact that they are, sometimes, a good mile from a parking spot makes me realize they’re not always practical for family pictures. Especially for families with younger kids. This is why I was so excited when D asked that we meet at the reservoir at Sawyer Camp Trail. The location for our photo-shoot D and S love Sawyer Camp Trail. They take little A on walks there, and it has a meaning to them. It’s always a win in my book when a[…]See more from “Millbrae Family Pictures: Worth the hike”

Beautiful S is going to have a baby in the next few weeks. Given how long it’s been taking me to post my previous family portrait sessions, I’m bumping her to the top of the queue of posts. Now you’ll get a chance to meet the Bump before we snuggle it in baby form. I photographed S’ first baby bump not all that long ago I’m so excited for these guys. I photographed S’ first baby bump not all that long ago. It’s pretty great to see they’re gearing up to meet this little one. Bringing help Their little dude, E is one serious customer. I mean literally serious. He had two modes. One, caring only for the passing cars.[…]See more from “San Mateo Maternity Photographer: A second baby bump”

While I spend most of my waking hours working in San Francisco, I don’t get a chance to photograph in the city often. When my husband and I lived there, we also stayed pretty faithful to our neighborhood, and thus stayed within a comfortable walking distance to SOMA. In summary, while I have a large catalog of locations to offer up on the Peninsula, my recommended spots for family portrait photography in San Francisco are…. let’s say, quite lacking. This is where friends come in. Seriously! I am beyond grateful to be part of a supportive and vibrant community of women photographers. When these guys asked for a spot in the Presidio, my friends obliged with a few recommendations including[…]See more from “San Francisco Family Photographer: At the Spire”

Pssst! There are squirrels around here! Really! And if you’re really, really quiet, and offer up a pine-cone, they might come out. Let’s see, as a child photographer I’ve sought out bears, bribed squirrels and have jumped around like a bunny (among probably many others), but this is probably the first time that my “pretend goal” actually realized. It turns out that Leo J Ryan Park, in Foster City, is not only a great spot for a family shoot, but also a great place to make friends with the little fur-tailed critters. Q and E had a blast trying to cojole them from trees with pine-cones. I also enjoyed getting Q to make silly faces for me showing me how[…]See more from “Foster City Child Photographer: There are squirrels!”
