The Edwards Family | Northern California Redwoods

One of my most favorite people on this earth is Erin Edwards. We’ve grown into a friendship together over the last 9 years, both of us learning and awkwardly changing, and now we are connected at the deepest of heart and soul levels. She understands me inside out and loves me just as I am, as I love her. I don’t think I’ve ever had such a wonderful friend in my life, other than my husband. I’m grateful beyond words to share the intimate parts of my mind and life with her. Everything I tell her is received with love and authentic understanding, no judgement, no competition, no false words of confidence just to be kind. There is also so much laughter between us, like immature teenagers divulging all the asinine craziness that goes on in our minds too. That laughter and ability to laugh at ourselves is so healing for me too. The best part of this session was the walk I got to take with Erin through the redwood grove, taking in our surroundings and breathing in that moist, fresh air before we drove away.

Photographing her family is so fun. Her children are full of personality, which I feel like we really captured in this session. They moved to Arizona over the past year, which was heart breaking for everyone, but thankfully, it didn’t effect the closeness we share. She came back to graduate from her masters program and asked me to capture her family again while she was here. I couldn’t be more honored. She requested film, so we shot film and digital (more film than digital). She’s been with me on this photography journey since it began and has left behind some very talented photographers to work with me. I know it’s not just because we are friends. She tells me always it’s because she truly loves my work and style. When anyone chooses me for that reason, then it’s always a good fit and a beautiful session, guaranteed.

Thank you for playing with me among the giant beauty of the Redwoods, Edwards Family. I love all of you and miss you already. xo

The Wong Family

It’s official, spring is here and I am so filled up & inspired! It’s like nature pressed the “refresh” button. All is so green, and the lighter evenings let us stay out and play in the glowing light. Everything is waking up again, including myself. My clients are calling and we’re setting up sessions to mark the time again. It really goes so fast. Gavin turned 2 on March 12th. He is one of the most beautiful boys I’ve met. He was reserved and shy with me this time, but I have a big heart and a lot of space for that. Daddy brought out that smile that he shared with us among the peach blossoms in Saratoga. Thank goodness for Daddies.

Happy Spring! Let’s get YOUR session booked too. It’s too beautiful out not too! xo
