Meet Mamba! | Bay Area Pet Photographer

My sister-in-law and her fiance recently got a Great Dane puppy and named her Mamba. I got to meet her for the first time last weekend, while celebrating Christmas with my husband's family. I'm pretty sure she is going to be HUGE the next time I see her, so I wanted to capture a few puppy portraits while she is still smaller than me.

Rachael Bakes! | Bay Area Photographer

You may remember the engagement photos I shot in the rain a few months ago of Jessica & Alex. Well, Jessica's sister, Rachael, has her own dessert catering business and she contacted me to set up a shoot of her desserts and some head shots for her website (which is currently in development). I was very excited to have the opportunity to shoot "stuff that doesn't move" and to have the chance to capture Rachael's bubbly personality and unique style. We shot on location in my kitchen on the Saturday after Thanskgiving (thanks for giving me a great reason to clean my kitchen until it sparkled!). We shot over 10 different types of desserts and got a few really fun shots of Rachael for her site. I hope she is as happy with the photos as my husband Sean and I were with the desserts she left behind for us...they were AH-MA-ZING!  

Let me know if you're interested in hiring Rachael -- I can put you in touch!

Hungry, yet? :)

Meet the Faheys! | Bay Area Family Photographer

Kacey and I met our freshman year at Santa Clara University (10 years ago -- eek!). We lived on the same floor in the dorms, and have been friends ever since. We lived together in downtown Palo Alto after we graduated from SCU. After some time, Kacey moved out (to move in with Adam), they soon thereafter got engaged, got married, and this year were lucky enough welcome Kendal to their family! Kendal is 6 months old now, and changing all the time. She is ALL girl: dainty, petite, sweet, and so much fun! Kacey and Adam have adjusted to parenthood flawlessly! Fahey Family, thanks for allowing me to take your holiday family photos!

Baby Olivia | Bay Area Baby Photographer

The Sunday after Thanksgiving I was lucky enough to meet Lea, Mike, and their beautiful baby girl, Olivia. A few things about this awesome family: 

1. Lea and Mitzi (mother of 5 boys) are sisters (Did I mention that I love referrals?)
2. Lea & her husband Mike waited to find out if they were having a boy or girl (So cool - I hope to do the same someday. I mean, how many surprises do you really get in life? And, how many are as cool as that?)
3. Little Olivia was a long-time coming, you could call her a miracle baby. Lea told me that someone told her once (after Olivia was born) that in order to make a baby girl as cute as her, God must have had lots of parts on back-order!  (I couldn't agree more -- look at her!)

I enjoyed my time with this family very much (I'm pretty sure I offered to babysit)!
