Holiday Mini Sessions // Chico Family Photographer

This year’s mini sessions were A-mazing – full of the sweetest families and cutest kids. I don’t do a whole lot of family sessions during the year (because I’m busy busy with weddings), but I’m always reminded of how fun it is working with families. Also, I LOVE receiving Christmas cards with the photos from the holiday sessions. Just another reminder of how much I adore these clients/friends.          ...

Monique and Daniel in Oakland // Bay Area Engagement Photographer

Monique and Daniel grew up in the same town and have been together for several years. They’ll be getting married in their hometown next year, but they wanted their engagement photos in another special place- the city where they currently live and work. Monique moved to Oakland to attend graduate school at Mills College and later Daniel moved down to be with her. Now, they are both teachers (Monique for college level and Daniel is an elementary school teacher) in the Bay. Before the shoot, Dave and I had a short time to check out a little bit of Oakland and I can’t wait to go back. The shops, the style, and the coffee were spot on and it might be my current favorite place in the Bay area. Monique and Daniel.  These two are incredible stylish and photogenic. They were fun to hang out with and I loved the places that they chose for their photos- Mills College and Jack London Square, which were meaningful and iconic. Their wedding is going to be so much...
