Toddler Twins! | Family Portrait Photography | Napa Portrait Photographer

How sweet are these two?!!

When I begin planning for a session with a toddler, I know I’ll need to be on my toes just to keep up with their explorations! So for my session with the H Family and their gorgeous twins, I was mentally prepared to get blissfully exhausted! In truth, it wasn’t work at all. I had so much fun getting to know this beautiful family. I loved how they all played together: so much love!!! And Andrew & Sarah just melted my heart!

Stanford Engagement Session | Victoria + Drew | Oceano Wedding Photographer

Each time I head to Stanford University for a session, I’m awed by how beautiful it is and how many different but gorgeous little spots there are to photograph. Victoria grew up right next to Stanford, and they both attended graduate school there. And they introduced me to yet even more lovely locations! I had such a great time getting to know Victoria & Drew better, and I am SO excited for their wedding next summer at the Oceano Hotel in Half Moon Bay!

Here are just a few favorites from their session, or to see more, watch their slideshow!

Portola Valley Engagement Session | Caitlin + Timm | Villa Montalvo Wedding Photographer

How sweet are these two?!!

For Caitlin & Timm’s engagement session, we met at the home where she grew up in Portola Valley, and where they both still spend time with her family. It’s clear that there is a lot of love in this home, and it’s a beautiful, peaceful space. A perfect place for their session. These two are so at ease together, and I so enjoyed spending time getting to know them a bit better. I’m really looking forward to their wedding at Villa Montalvo next summer! Here are just a few favorites from their session, or view their slideshow here!
