Today is our five year anniversary.  What a different one from all the others…booking baby-sitters, arranging bottles, the list goes on.  But seriously, of all Will and I have done and seen and experienced in the past five years, giving birth to, and raising Lauren, has most definitely been the highlight.  So since it’s been a week of babies and parents on my Facebook and Instagram feeds, I thought I’d share a few of Lauren from way back in January when she finally started putting on weight like a boss, giving us previews of the sweetest little giggle, and leaving the newborn stage behind…a little sad, but so much fun.

We love our spritely little cherub to bits and know one of the best gifts we can give her are parents who are committed to loving one another selflessly and steadily across the years.  Happy Anniversary to my most remarkable husband who coached me through the birth of our little girl in every way that I needed and was the very first to hold her as she came whooshing into this world!  Those moments holding her together in our bedroom after her birth will always be some of the most tender, precious memories for me and I will treasure them always.

Happy Weekending!

I’m so excited for this truly sweet couple who just gave birth to their first baby boy.  I had the pleasure of photographing Alex, Kim and their adorable baby boy this past weekend, but wanted to share with you the photo shoot that came just prior to his birth. We chose the Palace of Fine Arts in San Francisco as a rain location since the weather had been looking pretty grim, but just as we arrived, the sun broke through and shone for the hour or so we were shooting.  How glorious!  Stay tuned for photos of Alex + Kim’s sweet little baby boy!

Lovely right?  Wait until you see the rest!  And I’m not trying toot my own horn here, I am just in awe of how radiant this couple is, how soft and pure the light was shining, and how perfect a setting we picked for our eastern Mediterranean-inspired photo shoot.  The vibrant punch of colour set amidst pastel earth tones…I could swoon.  And this is right here in my own backyard of Livermore!

I had the pleasure of working with so many amazing people in order to pull this shoot off.  Connecting with the family who own and operate Livermore’s historic olive oil production, hanging out with Brandon and Jamie over the course of the weekend, hauling and styling flowers, cake, wine, and decor with two AMAZING Bay-area planners, Erin Russo and Reba Anderson, brainstorming with stylist Jess Gould for two unique looks…the list goes on.  You all were incredible and I’m so grateful for the opportunity we had to work together!

While Brandon and Jamie were true newlyweds at the time of the shoot, we did wind up styling the session as an elopement so viewers could see what an intimate wedding in Livermore might look like.  The shoot was featured on one of my favourite wedding blogs, Magnolia Rouge, this past April, but I wanted to share more with my loyal viewers!  Here you go and happy weekending!
