Every once in a while I put myself in my clients’ shoes and spend some time on the other side of the camera.  This time I made a conscious effort to really do what I ask of all my families: Truly enjoy that time with my children  and  trust the photographer to capture us as we are.  It turned out that this session with no make up, wet hair and no special clothes gave me some of my favorite images with my kids.  What makes these images so meaningful to us is that they are only a little bit about how we look, a A LOT about how we feel.

So for all of my clients out there, here’s proof that I know how you feel in front of the camera 🙂   And as a family photographer, I’m not in the business of making you look like a model. I’m in the business of documenting what you already are: a super model to those who matter.

Thank you Noel Besuzzi of Bosh Images for these “super model” images of me and my babies 🙂

(Noel is using these to promote her mother’s day fundraiser for the Pacific Marine Mammal Center. Please visit their website to understand how our local marine life needs our support now more than ever.)


I was recently in Las Vegas for WWPI, the largest Wedding and Portrait Photography conference.  Although Vegas is not the city I would choose to visit for fun, I had an amazing time seeing my friends, getting new ideas, finding new products, and even won an award on the print competition.  But without a doubt, my favorite part of the trip was shooting these portraits.  I don’t usually shoot in the desert, and a stormy desert was definitely an extra treat.  I think Kristin is just too beautiful to be true!

Being a beach person myself, summer family photos are always my favorite! Pair that with clients who really know how to have fun, and the day can’t get any better.  Here’s their recent shoot and the one from 2 years ago is here if you want to check it out 🙂 family-photo-4
