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!

I have a slight obsession with bees. Snapped this one drinking from the lavender in our yard.

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.

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…
Gelardi Family, Yountville, CA – December 2015
Peterson Family, Yountville, CA – December 2015

Napa Valley Film Festival, Festival Fitness Day 1, St Helena, CA – November 2015
The 4th annual Napa Valley Film Festival was held November 12th – 15th 2015 here in our lovely valley. This year the passholders were treated to yoga classes, available at two locations in Napa & St Helena. Jennifer Heminger of Integrative Healing, the mastermind of this piece of festival goodness, asked me to photograph the fun! Day one was an offering by Lisa Ackerman.
Lauryn & Pete, Carneros, CA – October 2015
Lauryn and Pete celebrated their two year wedding anniversary a few weeks ago, and to commemorate, a photoshoot took place in a lovely Carneros vineyard. It was an amazing experience, photographing the love that was shining in their eyes when they looked at each other – seriously, guys: they were so adorable I practically squee’d.
So grateful for the opportunity to share these beautiful moments.
Doyle Family, Napa, CA – October 2015
This red-haired cutie is Connor, who is turning 1 in a few weeks! Thank you to Rachael and Mike for the sweet morning photographing their adorable family.
Monterey, CA – August 2015
Last month I took Marco on a special weekend trip to Monterey before school started. We spent the evening walking around Cannery Row, eating ice cream at Ghirardelli Chocolate, and cuddling. The next day we adventured around the Monterey Bay Aquarium, where the jellyfish held our attention for most of the afternoon.
Marco & Stabler & Roux, Napa, CA – August 2015
A morning of my snuggling my babies led to a few dreamy little portraits.

I was invited to shoot the 2nd Vino & Vinyasa of the summer by Jennifer of Integrative Healing Napa , this time held at Sequoia Grove in Rutherford. The event was for the benefit of Girls Elevate ! It is so much fun to be a part of these events, which combine three of my favorite things: yoga, photography, and wine!
