I'm so glad you found me! I'm a San Francisco photographer, and this blog charts my journey in the ever-evolving world of photography. One of the things I love about photography is that it's a journey, not a destination. I'm constantly learning and meeting wonderful people. Please peruse the blog to your heart's content, then check out my website and feel free to contact me! (I love hearing from you.)

When I buy fruit, I tend to get a little out of control. Most people buy a basket of strawberries, I buy a flat. Most people buy a few peaches, I buy ten pounds of them.

The most delicious ten pounds EVER, I just have to say. Too good for baking, too good for jam, pies, cakes, you name it. Almost too good to pour yogurt over. Really, they are just meant to be eaten as they are, as nature intended. As we speak, only one lonely peach remains. The rest have been decimated.

Oh man. I love peaches.

The Bridge


I don't know about you, but I feel like I've been living off the fruits of the season this summer. First it was cherries, which I ate as many of as I could (Evan can attest to this, as he witnessed the carnage, and the mountains of pits and stems left over), and these days it seems to be strawberries that I can't get enough of.

This year they seem better than usual, sweeter and more complex. I eat them rinsed, just out of the carton, cut up into little pieces, in yogurt for breakfast and I even made this cake last week (highly recommended, but find lots of people to share it with or you might end up eating it for lunch the next day like I did).

What's your summer fruit? I can't decide if I want to go for peaches or plums next . . .

Ocean Beach

We walked out along the cliffs, towards Sutro Baths and then down to Ocean Beach. It was the perfect day.  The wind just barely kissed our faces and the water sparkled below, turquoise. I felt like I was somewhere more exotic than the prosaic and usually windswept San Francisco.

Just past the Cliff House we looked down over the beach at those out frolicking in the unusual heat. I took a photo, and we continued on. Strolling, it felt like we had all the time in the world.

Morgan, Alex and Aaron - Alameda Baby Photographer

Okay, get ready to die from cuteness overload.

So this is little Aaron. The sweetest, best behaved little munchkin. He was six weeks old when I took these, but he behaved like a pro, keeping eye contact with the camera through numerous outfit changes.

Except, you know, of course, when I was photographing his adorable little feet.

And don't be too shocked, but we might have taken one or two naked photos. Just for future blackmail use. You know, like when he's in high school and brings a girl home.

Look at that arm!

Mom and Dad were pretty photogenic too. :)

Outfit change.

They all live right near the beach in Alameda. I mean, how awesome is that? This is literally not even 500 feet from their doorstep.

We found a bench and some pretty light.

Thanks guys! I can't wait to watch him as he grows up!


Yesterday was cats, today we have some kittens from Animal Care and Control. Trust me, they're cuties.

But you don't have to take my word for it - see for yourself!

This is Mario and Andrea. A cuter pair you'll never meet. About 30 seconds after I managed to take this picture, Andrea jumped up on top of the white background, fell, freaked Mario out and he took off running. I had to fetch him out of a corner from behind a broom.

But once the loud noises were gone, they warmed up a lot.

They're so small!

And this little tyke is Choco. She was a playful one, couldn't get enough of the toy.

And she was quite a good jumper!

This gray and white fluffball was Mariah. She also loved to play.

And this is her brother, Buster, who had the cutest little crossed eyes.

This is Lizzy. She was on the quieter side, just wanted to be held and pet. And what great green eyes!

And this is her brother, Mouse! (What a great name!)

And this little orange fellow is Bam-Bam.

And this is his brother Robbie.

And the other brother, Piglet.

Go check them out and adopt one!
