I know it’s cliché, but 2017 just flew by! It was my first official year in business and I was blown away by how much I was able to accomplish, how many amazing people I met, and how many joyful moments I had the honor of capturing! I’m so incredibly thankful to all of you for trusting me with your memories! From weddings and engagements; to portraits, families, and fashion; here are some of my favorite moments from across the board!
(Divided into 3 categories: Weddings/Engagements, Portraits/Fashion/Products, and Families!)
Weddings + Engagements
I thought it appropriate to start with my most “liked” Instagram post of 2017 (above)! These two were the perfect example of modern and chic at their San Francisco City Hall wedding, and their goofy and joyful personalities made them so easy to photograph!
See more from their feature on Black Nuptials!
Other favorite city hall weddings included that of my good friends, Jasmine & Jakob (seen below)! Her vintage jumpsuit was the perfect choice and her sunflower bouquet (by Fresh 4 Us) added the perfect pop of color!

And now an intermission from city hall weddings to show you some favorites from other locations!
Some of these images (such as the ones above and below) were taken while second shooting for other photographers! (Photographers I worked with last year include Meg Russell, Meghan Marie, Jodee Debes, and Katie Rummel) I absolutely LOVE working with and for other photographers because I not only get to meet wonderful, kind, and creative souls, but it also allows me to take non-traditional photos and shoot from different angles like the photo above!

Oh their genuine smiles just make me so happy! 😀
Portraits, Fashion, & Products
I’m officially in love with details and color! Pops of color on a crisp white background are my absolute favorite! In 2017 I had the lovely pleasure of working with fashion bloggers Kallie Flexman, Sally from Sister Styled and Yvan! Check out their pages for style inspiration!
I’ve also loved taking headshots for local businesses this past year, like Marlene (above) from Marlene Design Co! She is the absolute sweetest! I also had the pleasure of photographing the entire Taylor Engineering team for their website! See their headshots here!

I met so many wonderful families this year! I also had my first “mini” fall family sessions, which were so fun and a great way for families to update those old photos in just 20 minutes! The photo above is one of my absolute favorites from those mini sessions! We combined 2 mini sessions for a pair of sisters and their families (along with their parents) to have a great photoshoot together! This photo is of the cousins and their grandmother!
Here are a few more favorites from their session!
The way they look at each other after all those years!! <3
More favorites from family sessions!
This location in Marin (above) is sooo good in the spring! Wildflowers right on the beach! See more from their sunrise family session here!
What’s a family photoshoot if you don’t have a little fun?! 🙂
These boys (above) were crazy fun! There were so many photos of them running around being themselves! 🙂
If you made it this far, I’m impressed!
