The longer days of Spring brings out some beautiful natural light settings here in the East Bay of San Francisco. Chatting away with graceful lady made the time just slip away. She's starting a new chapter in her life by starting a new business. Did you know women start more small businesses than men? Go ladies! I have too many favorites to share them all here but here's just a few.
I don't know about you but I LOVE to look at old photos, and no they are not on my computer or on my phone. I have albums and photos all throughout my home. The memories I have as a child with my grandparents are priceless. I still miss them every day.
Create a lasting memory for yourself, your children, your grandchildren and join us on April 28th for your own heirloom photo that can be passed on through the generations.

Often, families inquire about hiring a photographer for the actual day of the Communion at the Church and capture portraits of the child and the family. However, I have to suggest that if you are truly interested in portraits, that we should schedule the portrait session before Communion Day.
- Communion Day can be stressful, but your session shouldn’t be! Scheduling a day-of session means we will be working with limited time. And if you are running late, then your session will be even shorter.
- If scheduling immediately after the ceremony, there will be many other families also taking photos of their children inside and outside the church. This can make it difficult to get the ideal location and lighting needed.
- Additionally, many families schedule a party on the same day as the Communion, and your brain will likely be filled with thoughts of preparations, arriving on time to your party, etc.
If you schedule your session on a different day, you won’t have any time constraints and you will be more relaxed when you arrive for your session. Without all these other logistics to worry about, you will be able to focus on simply having fun with your children, and your photographs will be beautiful.
I get asked this all the time. When is the best time to have portraits done? As a photographer I will tell you anytime! As a person - I will tell you - don't put off tomorrow what you can do today. Life can be unexpectedly short. We have no control of what happens tomorrow.
When I first met this beautiful woman at a local Lean-In Group I was instantly connected to her. She's a passionate financial planner who works not just from her vast experience, but from the heart. She truly cares about you and your family. When she told me her oldest daughter would be visiting from Paris for the holidays I said - we need to do this! Add her Dad who has not been well to the group as well. Because, again, life is precious.
We had a wonderful time together the day before Christmas Eve and captured some very special moments together.
