Phoebe + Sean {Golden Gate + Lover's Lane} San Francisco Maternity Photographer

I am so excited that I get to follow and get to know Phoebe + Sean over the next year of their little one's life! The due date will be here before we know it (just after Valentine's Day!) and I can't wait to photograph their new son. For maternity photos, we wanted to capture something "San Francisco" with a beach and also something that was more private. We headed over to the Golden Gate Bridge on the Marina Green/Crissy Field area to get some beach shots, then went to my fave (Lover's Lane) for our more private/let loose photos!

Sean was a natural in front of the camera, but let's be honest - it's the WOMAN who has the pressure to shine-shine-shine! Phoebe rocked it and you'd think she had paparazzi around all the time. Sean did a great job of making her laugh so we could get her natural, beautiful smile. This baby boy is going to be very lucky to have two incredible parents awaiting him!!

The Talented Jolene {Headshots | Palace of Fine Arts} San Francisco Headshot Photographer

Ready for another fabulous woman of many talents? Meet Jolene Lindner of JL Interior Designs AND her totally awesome Etsy shop. Interior designer...painter...mother...wife...and overall super-sweet person. I first met Jolene while photographing her family (I'm including a few photos from that session too because Ava is so darn adorable). She then realized she wanted to invest in proper headshots for her websites and we got to meet again! We did the family photos at Crissy Field (loooove the grove of trees by the Crissy Field Center with the Golden Gate Bridge in the background) and then we took her headshots at the Palace of Fine Arts. San Francisco has so many fantastic places to take photos!!!

Thank you, Jolene (and Tony and Ava!) for being such fantastic clients.

Ali + Mike {Lover's Lane, Presidio} San Francisco Engagement Photographer

"So two gals walked into a bar one night...." Yes, Ali + Mike's story actually does go something like that. Ali has been a dear friend of ours for the last 4+ years we've lived in San Francisco and we gladly adopted Mike into our circle when they met at the wine bar District a few years ago!! They are getting married in Las Vegas this fall and I was honored that they allowed me to take engagement photos to celebrate the upcoming nuptials!!! We headed first to Lover's Lane in the Presidio and then to Crissy Field and the Marina Green where we had a stunning view of the Golden Gate Bridge as our backdrop.

As you can see in the photos, I had a VERY hard time getting them to warm up to the camera (okay, so they made my job very easy but don't tell anyone I said that!!). Congratulations, Ali + Mike!
