Juniper's First Dip in the Ocean

       Juniper got to wear her bathing suit for the first time for an ocean dip in Tomales Bay. We enjoyed the (surprisingly!) warm water and the company of our dear friend Jane and Snorkel Grandma. Hope you all had a lovely weekend!

San Francisco Family Photo Session at Baker Beach

       Max had never been to the beach before, and boy, he couldn't wait to plunge his fingers through the sun-warmed sand! We spent a miraculously radiant day on Baker Beach with this little guy, and his parent's, Sarah + Klaus, as they celebrated their last days in the Bay Area before leaving on a grand adventure to China. They wanted to get some family photos to remember the great times they've shared  here. While the iconic Golden Gate Bridge features prominently, what shines through as the focus of each image is a tremendous spirit of love. Although this family hails from all corners of the globe, they carry home and happiness with them wherever they go.

     Bon voyage sweet family! And best of luck on this new chapter in your lives :)

Alissa + Brent: Anniversary Photo Session at Stanford University in Palo Alto

       We met Alissa + Brent last year at Liz + Will's wedding, and these love birds made quite the impression: they were some of the most memorable guests on the dance floor! They had some totally amazing moves and we got some awesome photos of them in action.

       We were so happy to connect with them again when Alissa contacted us about setting up an anniversary photo session at Stanford University in Palo Alto. After having such a great time with them strolling through campus, sharing laughs, cooling off in the shade, and stretching out on the green lawn under the sun, it was clear that they are the perfect partners for each other, both on and off the dance floor. :)

       Hats off to you both! Congratulations on your anniversary!
