San Francisco San Francisco Bay Area Photographer

So when I decided to jump on board for the first half of the #passporttothepacific adventure, I admittedly didn’t really know where we were even going or what we were going to be doing.  Natalie sent me her flight itinerary and I booked my flights!  You should also understand that prior to this trip I really had no geographical awareness of the state of California.  I knew LA was somewhere in the middle and besides that I knew really nothing.  When I heard that we were flying out of Oakland, I had literally no idea that it was next to the place that I had been dying to go to… San Francisco!

I don’t really know where my attachment to this city came from… probably from years of watching Full House, but either way, I have been completely enamored by it for some time now.  I can’t even describe to you my reaction the first time I saw the Golden gate bridge!  I was so excited that I almost cried… and people that know me know that I never cry!  I’d probably been spending too much time with Natalie!  Even though our trek through this city was way too brief for my liking, I hope you’ll enjoy a peek at my favorite images from there.

Wife, mama, wielder of light & joy, and capturer of moments.  I thrive off of conversation and genuine connection.  In between wrangling our kiddos, and hanging my husband, you'll find me dreaming up my next idea or creative endeavour.  It's these things that culminate to give my imagery a warmth and joy to them - the greatest compliment I could receive.

Lauren grew up spending her summers at the shore, and when she and Nick got together, she couldn't help but introduce him, too!  Their session in New Jersey was filled with gorgeous light, sweet smiles, and so much love & laughter.

Connor and Alli's wedding celebration was full of lush florals, gorgeous details, and a whole lot of joy.  Their first look was one of the most sacred moments I've witness on a wedding day... filled with so much delight and love!

One of my greatest inspirations comes from exploring and the California coast fulfills that wanderlust like nothing else.  Anytime I have rolling hills and oceanside views, I'm in heaven.

She's the ultimate hypewoman. I was pretty nervous about being photographed and Lauren made everything fun and flexible. Honestly, I can't imagine the day without her and her team. They were wonderful and hearing from Lauren was always a genuine delight.
