Just a couple of months ago this amazing little guy came into the world. What was life like before his sweet smile, wiggley toes and warm snuggles? I am pretty sure that these two beautiful parents have no idea!

A local client asked me today if I ever shoot bottle shots. Yes. quite often. It is not an area that I advertise nor talk about much, but I do enjoy some quiet studio time at times. I appreciate all of the art that goes into making an amazing bottle of wine and I try to convey the client’s story with my images. Here some of this last year’s work.
….. 11. go outside . breathe deeply
12.. run into the arms of someone you love
13. explore & discover the beauty around you
14. hold the hands & swing bravely high into the air
thank you little Noe for bringing us out into a crisp fall day; I enjoyed every moment!
These two adorable children are always such a joy! I was cracking up when little L was trying to out pose his big sister and when she boldly marched through tall grasses to be the first to the river. (Don’t let her sweet face fool you – she is one competent adventuresome little girl..that’s my kind of client!) We enjoyed an absolutely beautiful Napa Valley evening & explored to find some great locations. Our fantastic shoot was completed by dinner with both our families such a delight!
From our first phone call, I knew I was going to love this couple! Mindi shared the details of the day adding that they definitely valued photography and wanted me to sneak them away for a quick sunset photo shoot in the valley! Yes please! It was magical light & we were honored with a spontaneous visit from a vintage bike & beautiful horses.
Mindi’s comment at the end of the session summed it up for me, ” This is just perfect – exactly like I imagined it!” Thanks for sharing your day with me Mindi & Chris!!

It is always an honor to be contacted by another professional photographer to shoot their images so I was thrilled when Kendra let me know that she was traveling from the East Coast & would like to incorporate some photos into their family vacation. We spent a lovely evening (albeit a bit buggy) letting her son wander & discover. This little one cracked me up – he has a sense of humor that would put most adults to shame & he kept me smiling the entire shoot. It won’t be long until the next little one joins her big brother running through the vines. I will be sure to save some dirtballs for you little guy! xo

As is often the case, once again the line between friends & clients has become very fuzzy. When I see these images, I have joyful memories of the rope swing, frog pond, dancing grasses & family giggles. It’s only when I really focus do I remember that I was responsible for taking these images. It would be easy for me to forget and feel like I was simply a member of this pleasant summer evening.
i love this little ones curls & adorable expressions…here are just a few:
If you heard the rocking music & saw the hordes of people making their way to tasty food trucks & fantastic vino…you know all about this post. In case you missed it…here’s a peek at the Grand Opening of Velo Vino; ( The newest endeavor of Kit & Gary of Clif Bar) and the happening locale for Cycling, Espresso or Wine enthusiasts. Hi-lights included the Clif Band, Kara’s Cupcakes, & an awesome crowd. What a night!
You may remember this beautiful couple from their engagement session & wedding last summer in Hawaii. This last weekend I was fortunate enough to catch up with them & document yet another amazing time in their lives. With spring just around the corner, I can’t think of a better time to welcome a life into this world.
