Artistry & Inspiration

During our wedding, I got to walk down the aisle to the song, “Thousand Years”. You know the one…from Twilight. Say what you will, but seeing Lindsay and walking toward our future to those sweet words was one of the most powerful moments in my life. I enjoyed the movies, loved the books, and adored […]

This wedding was flawless. The couple, the family & friends, the venue, the details, all were incredible. The last few photo jobs we’ve had have been so good, it’s made me stop and think about how lucky we are. After the gratitude settles in and I get to enjoy it for a bit, I start […]

When Brittany and Alina told us they were getting married at a Lavender Farm, we couldn’t wait! I didn’t even know we had one close. Turns out Lavender Ridge is located just a few miles outside downtown Reno, NV. And it’s lovely. Photographing mid-day in the sun was something I never wanted to do before […]

Lindsay was gone visiting family in Oregon and I was invited by Mackenzie to tour Casino Mine Ranch. We became friends working with Mackenzie on a number of occasions where she’s done event styling. I didn’t know she also represented a gorgeous winery in Amador County. I’m not nervous to go places by myself, but […]

Some of my favorite quotes are by Coco Chanel. One I can’t help but think about as I remember Madison and Chris’ wedding day is, “A girl should be two things, classy and fabulous.” Madison is clearly both. Each of her choices from where to get ready (The Sawyer Hotel) to her dress, to her […]

I got an email yesterday inviting me to a friend and client’s memorial service. Charlot was married to Gregory and together they had an incredible life with two teenage boys. She was 48 (you can read more about her life here). It was a terrible shock and I wanted to do something, anything for her husband.

Lindsay and I have been trying to make babies for a few years now. We’ve been able to get pregnant a few times, but staying pregnant has been more trying. One of the most difficult challenges of my life has been to be happy for friends and family who have successful pregnancies. I want to be happy, I really do, but instead, I battle being heartbroken and sad and jealous.

Look at these two! You’d think they hang out like this all the time, but no (they do hang out all the time, but usually, Minnow is half-way down Jones’ throat). Lindsay placed Minnow there probably 5 times before I felt confident enough to take the shot.

I signed up for Instagram and stumbled upon Aleksandra Zee. Not only is she outrageously talented, and has stellar taste, but she is B E A U T I F U L. We met yesterday at Four Barrel Coffee in the Mission (her suggestion) and I found out…

We saw this gorgeous two year old and his pregnant parents at Chocolate Fish one day, and told them how much we’d like to photograph them. We got a call a couple months later after little sister was born and got to take these photos today. Are we the luckiest or what?!!
