Three generations of family ~ outdoor session in the garden {San Ramon portrait photographer}

It was such a delight photographing this loving family. I was so excited to meet little Adeleine, just 6 months old, and welcome her to the family. It was a special time because Grandma and Grandpa were visiting from New York. The boys are so caring with their younger sister, and you can just feel the affection between the whole family. It was a gorgeous day at Crow Canyon Gardens, the perfect setting for a family photo shoot

Styled Game of Thrones shoot {SF Bay Area Senior Photography}

I believe in life-long learning, and I was so inspired by my time at Conference 12 in Denver, Colorado this past week! With 12 speakers and only 50 attendees, this was an incredible opportunity to focus on my senior portrait business with like-minded people. These photos were taken at Red Rock Park, Colorado.  The amazing True Moua of True Creative Portraits  planned and styled this Game of Thrones inspired session. The models are high school seniors, and they did an incredible job encompassing the theme.

charismatic graduate ~ downtown photo session {San Francisco Bay Area senior portraits}

This senior model was so much fun to work with! She is truly a natural in front of the camera, and I see a future on the catwalk for this charismatic girl. Our photo session took place in the afternoon peering into the windows of our downtown location. I am a big fan of reflections, and the store windows were the perfect compliment to this infectious senior's smile!

Adventurous high school senior ~ outdoor Fall session {SF East Bay portraits}

This 2018 graduate was a delight to work with. On a gray Fall afternoon, we explored the hills for our senior photo session. There were clouds in the sky and the rain threatened, but this girl was so good natured, she managed to stay positive and show her true smile throughout! And what a gorgeous dress for an outdoor shoot in the foothills.

family of three in the gardens ~ Lake Merritt {Oakland portrait photographer}

After moving to Oakland, I've been on the lookout for fun locations for photo sessions. I've been amazed at how quiet and peaceful Lake Merritt Gardens have been...even on a weekend! With a variety of plant life, colors and textures year-round, it is an ideal spot. This family of three was excited to explore the gardens together on a sunny summer day. Their daughter is just full of life and personality, making our photo session a blast!

confident high school girl ~ outdoor portraits {SF East Bay senior photography}

This confident high school senior was a delight to photograph. She was at ease in front of the camera and excited about posing in different locations as we explored our outdoor site. Tulips were in full bloom on this gorgeous spring day. Couldn't have asked for a more scenic location for an outdoor senior photo session!  Read her mom's senior portrait session review on the Raves page.

Stylish Athenian Graduate ~ Senior Session in Spring {Danville High School Photography}

This high school senior is amazing! With self confidence and a great fashion sense, she arrived ready for our outdoor photo shoot on The Athenian School's multiple acre campus. We started with her adorable fluffy companion and concluded our session as the sun was setting behind the mountains and Oak trees. As a former Athenian art teacher, it is always so much fun to return to this gorgeous school campus to create beautiful senior portraits.  This graduate was a joy to work: excited to experiment with different backgrounds, a great sense of humor and an incredibly quick outfit changer! I just adore her sense of style. She is headed off to do incredible things at college next year and beyond.
