San Francisco Bay Area Photographer - Leah + Victor {Maternity}

I was so excited when Leah contacted me to take her maternity pictures!!  Victor and Leah are expecting their first child this June and I couldn't be happier for them!  We originally had to re-schedule our first session due to the rain, and of course because the weather is so unpredictable in San Francisco I was worried that we would be rained out again...but nope, it turned out to be just a little windy (well, a lot windy :)

Leah and Victor, thank you for having me document such a wonderful and exciting time in your life!! 

Here are a few of my favorites, and as always, don't forget to view the slideshow (with lots more pictures :)

Wedding Wednesday {Things I love} B H L D N

I love everything Anthropologie. Really, everything in that store is just so beautiful. Even the little pouch that their gift cards come in are adorable! I get so excited when their catalog comes. I gain inspiration just from each photograph. It was about a week before my wedding when I started seeing the buzz on Facebook that Anthropologie was coming out with their very own wedding line! What!! I was a little sad that with only a few days left before my big day, I would be browsing their website at all the amazing shoes, dresses, and jewelry, knowing that I would never be able to incorporate any of it into my own wedding. But…it totally makes me so happy to see that all these beautiful details are available for all you brides out there! If you haven’t checked them out yet, you have to! You won't want to miss out on all the gorgeousness that is B H L D N.

For you brides out there (or anyone else who just wants to check it out) there is a quiz titled “What kind of bride are you” (it took me back to the days of quizzes in Teen Magazine :) You answer five questions and that’s it, you will find out what your wedding style is. I found out that I am a ”nostalgic romantic:” Then it takes you to an assortment of gowns, and jewelry that fit into this category. It’s cute; you have to check it out!!

Here are a few pieces from the "nostalgic romantic" collection :)

XO :)

Bay Area {Maternity} Photographer : Melanie + Jack {Santa Monica}

I am SO excited to share this special session!  As I mentioned in the *sneak peek* Mel and Jack had not told anyone if they are having a boy or when Mel emailed me about doing her maternity pictures, she told me that they were going to use these pictures to announce to everyone what they are having!  What a cool idea!  She started telling me all the details that she was going to be using, and from that we came up with the perfect location...and you will just have to scroll down to see it all!!  There is even a slideshow at the end with more :)

Mel and Jack, thank you for allowing me to document such a special time in your lives!!  Congratulations again, and I can't wait for the arrival of your little one :) 

These are the oh-so-delicious Sprinkles cupcakes!
