corso kids

I had a great time photographing these two kids at their home.  Sometimes a photo session at home is the best way to help little ones feel comfortable and at ease!
So cute!

family photos

we had our family photos taken a few weeks ago.  to be honest, i have a hard time being on the other side of the camera! i suppose it is a good experience to be the photographed instead of the photographer.
i am heading out to new orleans to visit my sister this weekend.  dana is a 2nd year medical student at tulane and i am so excited to see the city through her eyes.  this is also a treat for myself after the marathon from last weekend.

here is a recent photo of ryan.  i can't say that she is 'my baby' anymore...she insists that i call her 'a little girl'.  they grow up so fast!

i did it!
i made it to the finish line after 26.2 miles around san francisco and although i am a bit sore today, i feel absolutely fantastic.  the nike women's marathon was quite an event.  everything was so well organized and team in training had such a huge presence that there was a sea of purple shirts all along the course.
i joined team in training a year ago and signed up to do a half marathon because my brother had just been diagnosed with hodgkin's lymphoma.  a year later, he is finished with treatment and i am proud to say that i have finished both a full and a half marathon with team in training.  the leukemia and lymphoma society does so much for cancer patients as well as funding grants for doctors who are searching for a cure.  i am so proud to be a part of the organization and a huge thank you to my friends and family who made a donation to the cause and helped me reach (and go beyond) my fundraising goal.
go team!

Jessica and Terry married at Allied Arts in Menlo Park and the day was absolutely lovely.

They surrounded themselves with their dearest friends and family and it was quite obvious that everyone was absolutely thrilled to see the two of them tie the knot.  What a beautiful day!

I absolutely loved shooting this wedding. Congratulations to Jessica and Terry!
Here are a few of my favorite images. Enjoy!

sijing & pedro - sand rock farm

sijing and pedro got married at the historic sand rock farm inn in aptos.  the couple shared the day with their closest family and friends and it was a perfect venue for this sweet and lovely wedding.  the ceremony took place in the redwood grove and then guests moved to the open air cellar for dinner and dancing.

i left this wedding feeling so lucky to have been a part of this day.  sijing and pedro are so genuine and kind.   they are so good together!
congratulations to the two of you and thank you so much for the gift from spain! i hope you had a wonderful honeymoon.
