// I feel the hurt of our planet’s lungs in my spirit, and still I know I can only barely fathom. Darkness looms. Without dropping all of the personal internal positivity I have cultivated, I feel deep cause for mourning. The child in me stirs, wakes to a burning house. I stifle panic, push the fire under the goose down blanket puffed up around me lately. But there is so much smoke, and I am but an ant in this world. What to do. What to do.

This dress was such a stunner 😍 I’m sooooo close to finishing this gallery! Headed to Napa CA tomorrow for the weekend and I’ll definitely be airplane editing... maybe it’s just me but it’s way more fun editing on an airplane. Am I right? 🙋🏻♀️
I think i’m breaking one of the cardinal rules for Instagram by posting this so late at night. But I don’t care. Because I don’t think Instagram likes me anyhow. I never did anything to it, it just has a grudge.
Regardless of IG’s grudge against me, it can’t possibly hold anything against Sumner and her amazingly infectious smile. So there.
Such a fun day at the aquarium with this crew! Lots of humans to keep track of in the dark exhibits but aquariums are seriously the best! It’s so cool to see the life below the sea. Getting cheesy but it only reveals more and more how intricate God made every piece of this planet! It’s so delicate and crazy detailed and I just love it!
Huge shout out to these two for getting in the water after their shoot! I haven’t even finished their gallery yet and couldn’t help but share these. They were the sweetest couple and SO fun to work with. You better believe I’ll be posting more of them real soon!
Also today makes three months on Instagram which was when I officially decided to start my photography business. May not seem that important but I’m so happy with how far I’ve come in three short months and cannot thank everyone enough for the support!

traveled up to the bay to watch these two get married a couple weeks ago. @laurkenkendall got asked how she cultivates good relationships with her clients, to which she responded “...a constant flow of open communication and a relationship built on the understanding that what i do is symbiotic and so to know and love them strengthens my ability to photograph them honestly.” so so so important. the couples that allow me into their lives as more than just “a paid vendor” get so much more out of this relationship than those who don’t. i wasn’t shareen & tyler’s wedding photographer, i was a guest with a camera who got to eat a hot meal at a table with other guests, dance on the dance floor, take photos in the photo booth, and overall just be a normal fucking human being at a super fun party without feeling the pressure of judgement from my couple because they knew i had their back and i knew they trusted me completely. that shit hits different, ya’ll. i hope everyone gets to experience this level of love & trust from their clients. i am so lucky.

Hiking this trail at such an early hour was otherworldly to say the least. It was surreal to watch the surroundings slowly appear as the sun began to rise.

newborn sessions with older siblings under 5 can be unpredictable because there are SO many feelings going on and interest is lost quickly. a moment like this happens in a tiny fraction of a second (1/250th to be exact) and, lucky for you, i love the challenge of capturing it!
