Holidays are right around the corner..

And so are holiday gifts and cards... So if you are on your way to Sears or JC Penny or (GASP!) Target to get your holiday photos taken... Please Please Please.  Put down the keys and call me :)

The last two days have been so much fun, I had the pleasure of hanging out with some lovely ladies and their youngins:  the CUTEST little babies on earth.  I know, all babies are the cutest.  But really, it was so much fun.

check it out...


All these were shot in my natural light studio... I am baby-proofing as we speak, so if you have any suggestions, I'd be glad to hear them!

Cortney and Stan!!!

Cortney and Stan were married in Los Altos (oops, I know I said Palo Alto...just kidding!!!) in September...
I met Cortney at the salon before heading over to The Chateau, I was so impressed with how cool she was!!!
Frank went to meet with Stan and his family as he was getting ready...

It was important to the couple that their wedding be personal and intimate, and they really accomplished that!

In the City!!!

Kirstin and Keith were married in September in San Francisco- rare to have a city wedding, and rare to have the pleasure of shooting the wedding of a dear friend!

We started the day at the Fairmont Hotel..

some wedding day jitters... totally normal ;)

Frank (who made a cameo appearance as a second shooter... many many thanks!!!) was over at the church with the gentlemen...

And despite the construction... It was still an absolutely beautiful ceremony at St Paul's in Noe Valley...

Combining the Jewish and Catholic traditions for the ceremony worked out famously with both a Rabbi and Catholic Priests running the show... I'm thinking this was the first "glass-breaking" at this church!

Then we headed over to the Olympic Club, Lakeside for the reception...

Weddings are always touching. I always end up feeling connected by the end of the day. It was, however, a bit different to watch so closely as my friend walked through her big day... I feel like I gained some perspective that I didn't even know I was missing... So you really do just keep on learning...

I have to thank Kirstin & Keith for giving me the honor of shooting their wedding!!! So thank you!! :)
