is all GROWN UP.
How cute is her outfit?
Be Merry & Be Bright.
Definitely getting into the Christmas spirit.
Trees and lights all over the city.
Very Happy about this.


Hope everyone had a lovely Thanksgiving Weekend with Family & Friends.
It's hard to believe it's really time to get the Christmas gear out and up....is November really almost over??!?!
On that note...a few weeks ago I got together with the Hurst Family out at Cavallo Point.
Loved every second of this shoot and how all the pictures turned out!
Thank you Team H, it was so great to see you and meet your ADORABLE little lady...her blonde locks are phenomenal!!!  


Thankful for Thanksgiving...

And of course Family & Friends.
Enjoy your holiday with those special to you...
and try to have as much fun as this wonderful family had ...
Cheers and Happy Turkey!


Framing the Family.

Is so much Fun.
Thanks to the R Fam for hopping into this giant Frame, I think it was worth it, I love how they turned out!
A couple of weeks ago, I was brainstorming with my stylist friend Nicole and describing "the frame" that I envisioned as the creative prop for this shoot.  Low and behold, she had this beauty at her place already.  Meant to be! 

Miss C.

defines cuteness.
Look at how much she has grown over the last year...click HERE!
What a model Miss C was for her 1 year shoot...
These pics are only a snipet of the many smiles she showed us.
Special thanks to Mommy and Grandma for helping!


It's beginning to feel a lot like Christmas in the City...

The L Family. Fort Point. San Francisco.
I saw the L Family about 6 months ago when one of these little guys was a NEWBORN.
It's so cool to see the kiddos grow up!
Thanks for heading to the city!
We had a great shoot and I'm saving some of the L's Family other photos for their holiday card.
But, I did take some images from Fort Point to use as an example of a Christmas Card Collage.
The Collage Card is my personal favorite! 



loves San Francisco.
And who doesn't love this weather? 
Regardless, this little lady was all smiles.


Loving Letters!

The options are endless.
Happy Weekend.
SF weather is HOT(as I am knocking on wood).


Miss G.

is beautiful.
Look at her EYES!
I LOVE seeing Miss G and her mom and dad.
I started last year by taking baby bump pics and now this little lady is all grown up!
Our last session was in the Spring HERE and I still can't get over how pretty her eyes are!
We'll keep the rest of the pics under wraps, can't spoil any holiday card surprises! 


The K Family

Mr. B

I just love this little guy.
Had to post a little peak.
Guess I am having blog withdrawals in the midst of editing! aha!


The Latest.

November is here and Holiday Family Photos have been in full swing! 
I am going to be a photo shoot and editing machine for the next 3 weeks, so if I am not the best blogger, you'll know what I'm up to...but I am going to do my very best because I have a ton of great blogs posts on my list and whirling around in my head!  I also want to get everyone's photos finished up in time for ordering! 
On another note, wedding season 2010 has come to a close and I've been working on and finishing up all of the beautiful weddings that I was able to be a part of this year.
On the home stretch ... Kristin and Jake's wedding.
It was held on a private estate up in Grass Valley and it was let's say in the words of Brian Wilson from Jay Leno the other night..."too much awesome," so fun, colorful, happy, wonderful family and friends...loved.
Happy Weekend.


The L Family

I had so much fun meeting the L Family! 
We had their shoot at the beginning of October down by Chrissy Field...the fog was in full effect...but the base of the bridge did peak out in a few photos - classic San Francisco! 
Regardless, their little gal, Miss C, loved running around in the grass and checking out the dandelions.
How cute is her dress??? Love.
I may need to do a second post for the beach portion of our shoot because Miss C certainly wasn't afraid to play in the sand or water...and we did a little outfit change.
Stayed tuned....! 


A Special Day...

for a special someone...
with all of her family and friends.
This adorable little lady had her Baptism at the beginning of October and I spent some time with all of her close family and friends before her special event.
I LOVE how these turned out.
These gals had the best time playing on mommy and daddy's bed...lots of smiles...and of course lots of fun!  I'm keeping the family pictures under wraps because I know some of them may be used for Christmas & Holiday cards...I definitely don't want to spoil the surprise!


The Giants bring home the World Series.

and our city is ON FIRE.
Streets are blocked by fans screaming "RENTERIA" while MORE fans are popping champagne, throwing toilet paper rolls everywhere, and cheering on the tops of leaning Muni buses.
Delaney's seems to be the bar of choice...at least in the Marina area for those of you out to celebrate.
What a night to remember.
Congrats Giants!!!
