3rd Annual SF Yoga Event, San Francisco, CA – October 20, 2018
It isn’t often that I get to combine two of my passions, yoga and photography; when the opportunity presented itself in the form of photographing a charity event in San Francisco, I jumped at the chance! Danni Pomplun, a yoga teacher and friend, organized this event benefitting the One Love Movement, a nonprofit that supports homeless, at-risk youth. This year the event was held at Bespoke Events . Over 300 students gathered to practice with guest teachers Janet Stone, Susannah Freedman, Julianne Aiello and Stephanie Snyder , raising $13,000!
Bee, Napa, CA – June 2017
I have a slight obsession with bees. Snapped this one drinking from the lavender in our yard.
Ottolenghi, London, UK – January 2018
One of the loveliest meals I’ve ever had was in London last month, at the famed Ottolenghi. Despite not the best lighting in the world, I managed to snap these beauties (quickly, as I was STARVING after a long day of walking around Londontown!).

The Felsher Family, St Helena, CA – August 2017
A few weeks ago I met a lovely family for a photoshoot at the top of Spring Mountain, on their family’s property. I wished I could have spent more time with this close-knit group!
Riorden & Tim – May 2017
Riorden W.S. Dickson – May 2017
Our second boy was born on May 6th, 2017. Though instructed to rest, I managed to snag a few photos of our little bundle the next afternoon. He and his brother Marco were taken with each other immediately. 🙂
Women’s March, Napa, CA – January 21 2017
It was a real rush to take part in the Women’s March held in Downtown Napa. We had over 4,000 people marching! My husband and son also took part in the march, and it was wonderful to see other children getting a taste of resistance and standing up for what’s right. Of course, marching left very little room for photo taking but I did manage a few snaps.
Laura & David, Napa, CA – December 2016
Mid-December brought an engaged couple to me for a photo session: my good friend Laura and her fiance, David. I had been thrilled when she told me of their engagement, and was equally excited to share this part of the process with them! Though quite chilly that day, we made good use of the natural light surrounding the property they own up Dry Creek Road in Napa.

Hallie, Napa, CA – November 2016
Hallie is a friend and former co-worker who is launching her own business as a life coach – geared specifically to empower women! I am excited for her adventures ahead and was honored that she asked me to snap some headshots and photos for her new website.
Jenny & Adam, Hans Fahden Wine Cellars, Calistoga, CA – Oct 2016
Earlier this month I had the amazing opportunity to be the second photographer for a beautiful wedding held at Hans Fahden Wine Cellars in Calistoga. It’s an amazing property, and provided a lot of sweet spots for shots of the couple. Jenny and Adam were great sports and seemed to be having a fabulous time at their wedding – lots of laughs, tears, hugs, and dancing. So proud to have been able to be a part of it. Here’s a few of my favorites:
Arturo & Robert, Yountville, CA – July 2016
ChamYard, Oxbow Commons, Napa, CA – June 2016
Baby Almond, Santa Rosa, CA – March 2016
The moment that I found out my friends were having their fourth child, I knew I wanted to help them out with photos, and I was honored to be asked. It was absolute joy to spend time in the little baby world, newly arrived at home, and just beginning to get an idea of the world.
It’s another one of those times where I consider adding to my little family, just because I miss some of those parts – the tiny toes, the funny arm flail as they learn their limbs, skin to skin contact…
