A baby in natural sleeping state is still with a sense of quiet awareness. He’s not worried about the dried up tears or flakes of skin on it’s body. He no longer has to look to anything to give him a sense of fulfillment or satisfaction, because he is already there outside of mother and into the world. Real baby portraits because nothing in life is as perfect as imperfection. We should embrace our natural state.

Welcome to the world, baby Donovan.

Beautiful roads often lead to beautiful destinations.

portrait | lucas + cooper

It’s been a quick three years since we’ve seen this handsome little dude! The last time we saw him was when he was still in his mum’s belly. It was like no time had past and I had known him all through these years. This kid is already a natural in front of the camera! Low and behold, the many faces of Lucas 😛

Love is all around this year at the beautiful San Francisco City Hall!

“I think that I see something deeper, more infinite, more eternal than the ocean in the expression of the eyes of a little baby when it wakes in the morning and coos or laughs because it sees the sun shining on its cradle”

Sarah + Aaron

Aaron contacted us because he was planning to propose to Sarah on her birthday and wanted us to be there to capture the moment. After the proposal, we went around and had ourselves a fun little pre-engagement portrait session. They were having so much fun, they almost missed their dinner reservation.

Congratulations again to the newly engaged Sarah and Aaron!

engagement | diane + tom

Diane and her man met the old fashioned way in San Francisco. As they move onto the next chapter of their lives together, they will have to leave their hearts in San Francisco for the east coast. For Diane and Tom’s session, they decided they wanted to visit places that hold sentimental value in their relationship and places where memories have made them closer.
