Here Comes Baby Number 4 | Sonoma County Maternity Photographer

My friend Nicole, her adorable 3 kids and fun hubby and I decided to venture out to the beautiful St. Vincent's School for Boys for her maternity pictures. Being this is her fourth pregnancy I thought for sure she'd be, well, a whole lot bigger than she is! That baby must be tiny in there! But it was so fun to hang out with this awesome family and get some pictures at the same time!

Marissa and Clark {Wedding}

I am not exactly a wedding photographer...but I LOVE this couple and LOVED their wedding! They were married on May 28 at Fernando's Bed and Breakfast, which is close to Bodega Bay. We had no idea what the weather was going to be like, and of course it was the worst for photography but perfect for the actual ceremony-- bright sunshine-- followed by pouring rain! Bishop Nathan Tanner did a beautiful job on the ceremony and Marissa and Clark were a very gorgeous couple! A huge thank you to Nitny as my second shooter--I will post some of her pictures soon! Here are just a few...

The Bridal Session | Sonoma County Portrait Photographer

So here it is. I've been super excited to blog Marissa's amazing bridal session photos. We met at the amazing St. Vincent's in San Rafael and she was glowing, beautiful and RADIANT! Marissa is a natural model and we could've taken pictures for hours! She brought along her besties, and I brought Miss Nitny to meet Marissa as she was my second shooter for the Big Day, which was yesterday. Now...SOOO glad we did these bridals. It poured rain during the wedding and photos were cut short. So. Take a few minutes to enjoy these photos...there are a TON and I could've posted way more! Thank you so much Marissa for allowing me to be a part of such an amazing time in your life! 




Marissa and Clark {Engagements} | Sonoma County Portrait Photographer

Meet Marissa and Clark. I feel like we have spent so much time together in the past month with prior shoots and the wedding yesterday, not to mention all the communication in between, and I LOVE them! They are a super laid back and fun couple that have a very deep and amazing connection. They have been through a lot together which I think will strengthen them for all the many, many years ahead. Due to their super busy schedules we did the engagements two weeks prior to the wedding, and were lucky to have a brief break in rain to do so. We headed up to the Marin Headlands and found some really cool spots for their pictures!



8 weeks old...| Santa Rosa Children's Photographer

So, the Aunty of Little L of my last post contacted me when she saw her niece's pictures, and we squeezed her in before her little one could grow much bigger! We had to work to get this beautiful baby to sleep for some newborn-type shots, but it was worth it! She was SUCH a sweetie and I love the shots we got! Patience is so worth it!
