My first family session...and I loved it!


I recently did my first ever family session! I didn't know what to expect and I was nervous to be working with a child that is sooo young but it all worked out and I got some amazing photos!

This family was incredible to work with! Marissa & Sean welcomed me into their beautiful home in Pacifica, CA to photograph them with their beautiful 1.5 year-old, Emery. Emery loved to pose for the camera! 

It was really fun to see the family interact with each other - they read some books, sang a song, looked at the gorgeous view of the ocean, and swung Emery around (one of my favorite shots, fyi)! It was so nice being able to give Marissa some photos with all three of them in it because, being a photographer herself, most of her photos are just of Sean and Emery. I was super happy with how this turned out and I cannot wait to book another family session! 

I am super lucky to have been able to add this session to my portfolio and galleries. It made me rethink what I offer to clients and I have decided I would rather do newborn/toddler photography than maternity sessions. This change is now visible on my investment packages! Learning something new every day guys!


Cat was a joy to work with. She is patient even with an active 1 year old. I am rarely in photos as I’m always behind the camera so it is really nice to have photos of our family. We will cherish these photos forever.
