I adore this family. From their engagement to wedding to maternity and newborn, and now family photos with their big one year old boy! I can’t wait to see what life has in store for them 🙂 Thank you for being awesome!

I met Holly through a long time photography friend, Cristin. She was planning a small wedding ceremony here in California to be married in the same church as RL’s parents. They were officially married in England (Holly’s home) and it was so special to them to celebrate with local friends at the Burlingame Country Club, where RL’s family has been members for many years, after their intimate ceremony. The group was delightful and it was so nice to meet Holly’s family from overseas and RL’s family from the USA. I only spent a few hours with them on the evening of their wedding, however I really felt the joy and happiness they exude. Holly’s mother couldn’t be at their ceremony here and RL’s father recently passed away, so while the day was very happy it was also bittersweet. They made sure to include both of them in their toasts and I know they were both there in spirit. Holly and RL are very generous, kind, and gracious hosts and it was a pleasure photographing their day. Congratulations to Holly and RL! I wish you both a lifetime of happiness together.

Church Venue: St. Matthews Episcopal Church, San Mateo

A while back I wrote about my experience teaching at a photography conference in Seattle for Clickin Moms. As part of the conference I taught two classes on capturing people outdoors, showing joy in couple’s photography, and indoors capturing sessions in low light using the light you’ve got! I had the extreme pleasure of seeing some old friends again…a bride and groom from years ago! Seth and Marcela agreed to meet with me and brought along their little one year old son, who I haven’t seen since his newborn session last year. I was so honored they took time out of their busy schedules to model for my class and hang out while I talked and talked about light and shadows. Thank you so much for helping me out!!

Here are some of the images I took while sitting on the hotel conference room floor with this fun family. You never need a beautiful backdrop or fancy home to get meaningful and emotive imagery, it is all about connection and light.

One behind the scenes, towards the end of the class little E fell asleep 🙂 the ladies in my class went crazy for this sweet boy and couldn’t help getting some shots of him in his mama’s arms!
