Nina and her Kids

I photographed this beautiful family at Oakland’s beautiful Lake Merritt. It was a rainy day, which meant that we pretty much had the lake to ourselves, but we were all quite pleased that we braved the weather.

Layla, Charlie & Sylvie

This was my second year photographing these three siblings. You can see the sweetness and love they have for each other in the photos, I think (I hope). It was definitely apparent at the shoot. To capture these images, we

These three young, aspiring models/actresses and I had a great time at Lake Merritt last month. Fun, sweet, full of energy, and tireless good sports, they made for an action-packed morning. At the end of the day, I was convinced

Halloween. New Orleans. The French Quarter. An amazing band in the middle of the street. A hundred or more costumed passers by. A great night!
