Family Portrait Session in Golden Gate Park: The Roby's

The only thing better than a tiny adorable toddler is a tiny adorable toddler in a dinasour costume. Ask anyone, cause it's true. And here is proof:

I love that I get to see this kid every 3 months! We're planning a 1 year portrait session in the snow, and I'm ridiculously excited.

Petaluma Engagement Session: Megan & David

These two kids are kind of adorable. They throw leaves at each other, they jump in puddles, they laugh a lot. They were down to shoot these photos when it looked like a monsoon outside. It was pouring and crazy windy that morning, and I even called and suggested we push it back a week, but they said they'd like to just give it a go! I'm so glad we did, because even though I was slightly disappointed that I didn't get to test out all of the pouring rain portrait scenarios I thought of in the car (while I was terrified for my life, seriously, it was a really scary drive), the rain completely cleared up and it was a gorgeous evening!

Now, Megan and David are one of those awesome couples that you can just tell they enjoy each others company. As I was editing the photos, I noticed that not only did they start to smile or laugh at the exact same moment, but they often blinked, licked their lips, or looked away at the exact same moment. Kind of crazy, right!?

This shoot takes place in Petaluma, Ca, and the winery is Kastania Vineyards who were kind enough to let us shoot there! Also, thanks to Vanessa at Beauty Mark Ink for doing Megan's hair and makup!

Megan and David are getting married next year at Silver Creek Valley Country Club! I can't wait!

Stockton Wedding: Sara & Joey

Sara & Joey have the most amazing friends and family. Throughout the day everyone kept thanking me for being there, and when I left her little sister gave me a huge hug and yelled "no you can't leave!!".  Their whole family are truly the nicest and sweetest people I've met, and it was such an honor to photograph their wedding!

The funny thing about Sara and Joey is how modest they are about everything. They casually said "oh we're just going to have our wedding in a family friend's backyard, it will be pretty simple".  I mentally prepared myself to retouch out BBQ's and yard knomes. When I pulled up to the house I couldn't believe my eyes. It was honestly the most gorgeous house I've ever seen. Just look at the backyard where they got married:

Did I mention that there is a vineyard 10 feet away, and the house is a gorgous mix of rustic and modern, with huge windows and stone flooring. Sighh... it was nice.

Back to Sara & Joey gorgeous do they look!
