I believe we’re most likely to seek out travel when we are in search of something. Sometimes it’s something obvious, like a change in scenery or routine. Other times, it’s not always so clear. Some unknown force draws us to another place and we’re fully aware of the urge to get-up-and-go but we’re not always […]

I thought 20 months would be too young for him to really enjoy Disneyland. Boy, was I wrong! Turns out, you’re never too young for the Happiest Place on Earth (especially when you get in for free!). This kid was fully enamored with all things Disney and still, two months later, asks about Mickey Mouse, […]

Funny story:  Mr. F confessed he was surprised by how much he loved the photos because at the end of the session, he was convinced it was a train wreck! Sure, the little guys had their own idea of what was going down during our time together. And sure, their idea might not have been […]

This session almost didn’t happen thanks to Karl the Fog. We first thought about changing the location, then delayed it a bit, and finally the fog lifted just enough for the gorgeous morning sun to shine through.

It was a sunny afternoon in September. The sun was shining, the birds were chirping, and love was in the air. Or something like that. This isn’t the cheesy schmaltzy kind of love. This is the real deal. The “I got your back through thick and thin, for forever and a day” kind of love. […]

One of the things I love most about San Francisco is the vibrancy and uniqueness of each neighborhood. They all have their own history, their own character and charm. Before I moved to the city, the Husband (who was just the Boyfriend at the time) lived in Russian Hill, just a short walk from Chinatown. […]

Happy first official week of Spring, everyone! Today happens to be gray, cold, and rainy here in SF but we’ve had quite a few sunshine-y days this week and that, combined with the extra hour of sunlight, seems to have put a new spring in my step (pardon the pun 😉 ). I’m totally an […]

Agh! I just sent off this gallery last night so, naturally, I had to share a sneak peek from Rachel & Erik’s engagement session with you, too.  It was my first visit to Pigeon Point Lighthouse and, man, was it worth the drive. Fun fact about the lighthouse – it’s also a hostel! Well, not […]
