Kaylin [Granville Island Portrait Photography]

It’s hard to believe that last month, my adorable niece started HIGHSCHOOL. Kaylin’s fabulous sense of humour, warmth, friendliness and sharp mind never cease to make me proud. Truly, at 13 years old, she is more beautiful than ever (both inside & out).

As anyone who has had the privilege of watching a young person grow up will say, it’s all happened much too quickly. Before your eyes they morph into these incredibly grown up looking human beings, and you’re left wondering both how old that it makes YOU, and where you were when it all happened because it seemed like just yesterday that they were small.

Just yesterday when they needed help cutting up their pancakes. Needed help finding the television channel with ‘Dora the Explorer’. Needed help brushing their teeth and tying their shoes. And today they are walking into a highschool– independent and confident– like they belong there and it’s the most natural thing in the world. Today they’re showing off their bellybuttons in Photoshoots with their aunts, and ROCKING it in a way that you never imagined they could.

These kids, man… They sure do grow up.

The ‘H’ Family

The ‘H’ Family came to see me to celebration several occasions– each one of their children have a birthday coming up in the next few weeks. Can you imagine being a parent and celebrating 3 birthdays within such a small window of time?! My hat goes off to Mr & Mrs. H! I had such a fun time with this family. The kids were each SO sweet, charismatic and wonderful to work with. Plus! It was interesting for me to shoot older children– it seems rare that I get kids over the age of 3 in my studio! Thanks guys!

Class of 2010

I had the pleasure of shooting these lovely ladies as they graduated from The University of San Francisco! We had such a blast exploring the U of San Francisco campus and snagging photo-ops as they arose. It was such a fun, laidback shoot and these 5 gorgeous women made getting beautiful photos as easy as can be.  Here are my favorites.

Thanks ladies, and Congratulations again!

a beautiful day in san francisco

It’s almost December, yet the sun is still shining warmly in San Francisco! It was nearly 70 gorgeous degrees today and Justin & I decided to get out and enjoy the weather a bit… So, we drove over to the Golden Gate Bridge.

Initially the intention was to walk across it (something I still have not done), however once on the bridge Justin discovered that, low-and-behold, his fear of heights is much more debilitating that once thought. We got about 1/5th of the distance across, before having to turn (rather hurriedly!) back to the safety of firm ground. Poor Justin! It all worked out though. Instead of crossing it, we spent some time just exploring the view-point of the bridge. Which turned out to be just as stunning without the gut-wrenching treachery.

I really am so lucky to be able to live in this gorgeous city!

 

Much to my discomfort and objections, Justin made me get infront of the camera.
