The world can be so small. I grew up in a teeny tiny little town in Northern California. I became friends with a girl named Kirsty Skabelund in the next town over through church. I’m still good friends with her and her mom! But I never really knew her older brothers. They were a few […]

If you’ve been following along in my Instagram stories, you know that I’m making my own sourdough starter. It might be silly (or it might be that quarantine is getting to me…) but I get absolutely GIDDY at 3 PM every day when I get to feed it and see all the good bubbles! Food […]

When I was pregnant with Jack, I never had maternity photos taken. The best I have are bump photos taken on my phone! I still treasure them, but this spring I was really hoping to get in a maternity session. And then, you know. 2020 happened. Luckily I have a tripod and a husband who […]

When Courtney asked me to take their family portraits this spring, I was so excited! Though I haven’t known Courtney for a long time, she has always felt like a close friend. When she found out I was pregnant with #2, she immediately offered me all of her maternity clothes! All throughout my first trimester, […]

A few weekends ago we went to Ben’s parents’ house to celebrate Eloise’s 2nd birthday! (Eloise is Jack’s cousin – they’re only 4 months apart in age and looooove each other.) We had so much fun partying with our little social butterfly Moana lover! It makes me so happy that Jack has so many cousins […]

You may have seen my announcement on Instagram at the beginning of this month about heirloom albums. It’s exciting, right? I know this month has been tough on everyone. But more than anything this crisis has clarified what is most important in life. It’s not the things we work so hard to accumulate or our […]

This year we all know that Easter looked a little bit different. We didn’t wear our Easter outfits to church where we would have sung “He Is Risen” with so many of our friends. We didn’t have a traditional egg hunt with cousins. There was no ham, no deviled eggs (super sad face), and no […]

I love the Baker family! This was our second session together and it was so fun to see how little Leilani had grown. Hanako and Paul wanted to get photos taken as a family when their sweet daughter turned two. On the day of their portrait session, I was sad that it was raining because […]

After a few rolls of muddy successes…I moved on to different stocks. After shooting my first roll, my next assignment was to try out different brands and speeds of film. There are so many brands – Kodak, Fuji, Ilford, etc – and each speed corresponds to the ISO they should be shot at. The first […]

I have been a long-time admirer of film photography. The look is remarkable. I love how soft and dreamy the images can be. The color. The grain. The bokeh (blur in the background). It’s all just so good. I had just purchased my Canon A-1 on eBay at a really great price and was waiting […]
