Napa Fairview Wedding Love for Three

Oh the beauty of a Napa wedding with a couple with so much beauty and heart.  The grounds of the Meritage is where I was able to capture the beautiful bride and her first look with her dad.  Although the vines were barren, the poppy flowers were in full bloom and couldn’t be better for a spring wedding in the Wine Country.

The venue, Fairview Napa Golf Course,  was off the charts perfect.  It was a perfect backdrop that allowed all the beauty to sprinkle in and so close to the party that was off the charts.  But the true jewel was Lauren and Ernie’s little girl.  She really stole the show!

Thank you for letting me be the one to capture this!

 

Fall Portrait Photography / Pumpkin Patch Portraits / Half Moon Bay

We may not have all the tree’s that turn color like the East Coast, but it is that time of year where the fall colors are glowing. And in Half Moon Bay in particular the pumpkins bring this magical warmth that is so perfect for a backdrop for your next family portrait.

There is nothing like the open country, add that with a splash of orange, aka pumpkins, and you have your perfect fall portrait session. My favorite pumpkin patch to capture this at is Bob’s Pumpkin Patch which is just slightly south of Half Moon Bay. If this is something you would love to capture, act fast as they are only hear for the month of October.

First Impression: Senior Portraits Stowe Lake

Sometimes I meet a family I get to capture and just know we are going to be instant friends, sometimes, life has it in store for it to be a brief encounter, leaving me hoping that I have left an impression in their hearts and memories.

Samantha was one of those instances. I had the pleasure of capturing her and her two older sisters 4 years ago. I loved every shot of that session and loved playing with that family, but of course, they lived over the mountain and had different lives than mine, so our paths never connected again, until now… Sam is graduating high school, and I was so honored that they called me to capture her senior portraits. Nothing better than a family that comes back to you, its then I know my first impression was a good one.
