Sweet Mia my grade school friend! I've been taking photos for her since little Kia was born. Photography has re-connected me with so many awesome people and taken me on so many adventures that my heart continually swells with love for the people in front of my lens. Mia has two boys and a girl...just like me! Kurtis, Coleridge (aka Buddha), and Kaia. Along for the shoot was her best friend in the whole wide world Parisienne. Together they make one sweet family. We spent this
It is so cool to take photos for this childhood friend. Heather and I went from Kindergarten through high school together. Thank you Facebook for connecting us! I text her yesterday to say how crazy/cool it is to look at these kids and think we knew each other at that age. She is now a teacher in Pasadena. I love visiting and hope to come back more, now that we are only a 5 hour drive from family and friends! These kids are so BEAUTIFUL I can't take it! Easton 8, Addie Grac
These gorgeous folks have been sweet and dear friends to me for over 10 years. I've photographed Sophia as a baby, Yadira's Quince, Liam in the NICU, and Ana's album release party to name a few. They aren't all Gonzalez's, however, for the sake of this post we'll leave it at that. Ana, Lukas, Joshua, Sophia, Adriana, Yadira and her sweet boy Liam! LOVE YOU GUYS!!!! So happy to see you all, you are all so beautiful!!!
This is another special family who's wedding I had the honor of shooting. Nina, Raul, Madelyn, and Sophia. Such awesome humans! We headed to Coyote Point Park in San Mateo at sunset to capture the snuggles and fun of these tensions little women. I can't get enough of their big brown eyes and long lashes! I also just love how Raul adores his girls, his affection for all three of them is so visible. XOXO Pena family!
Andrea, John, and Lucca! I can't believe this is my first blog with this gorgeous family! I think this was our 3rd or 4th shoot? Andrea is the sweetest, John is so patient, and Lucca is adorable! (Sorry for all the slammers, I get a little carried away) This San Mateo family met me at Laurelwood Canyon Park, a favorite spot of mine that few who live there even know about. I use to take my kids here to let them run for days. We had fun running through the weeds this beautiful
I had the honor of Photographing Sarah & Chris' wedding a few years ago. It is absolutely the coolest thing to be a part of documenting such special occasions in people's lives, including children getting older. Vivienne & Andrew are two energetic, beautiful, and fun kiddos that gave us all a bit of a work out as we ran around San Francisco's John McLaren Park. Love to keep see this amazing family grow!!! I'm keeping the blogs rolling out this week!
Farid Family of Four
Last post with this fam Myka was still cooking (you can see HERE)! Now she's 5 months old and all smiles!

I'm keeping these posts short and sweet.
