I love photographing families at Baker Beach in San Francisco. The setting is both gorgeous and varied! For these sessions I always advise clients to be ready for any weather, it can be gorgeous and sunny or dramatic and foggy or simply overcast. All of these conditions lead to terrific photos! When shooting at Baker Beach I always start my shoots using some of the natural elements that are there. We then head to the beach for some great shots, both posed and candid. Its fun to catch the Golden Gate Bridge in the background. Be prepared to get you feet wet by the end of the photosession.
I love newborn sessions! It is always fun to see families as they are getting used to and learning about their newest family member. I know that having a newborn can be stressful so my aim is to create a photography session that is relaxed and follows your newborn’s rhythm. No need for you to leave your house, I bring my studio to YOUR home. All I need is a 10×12 ft space where I can set up. Generally a living room with a sofa pushed pack and a coffee table removed works great! I shoot with both a white and a black backdrop. I think that these classic backdrops help to create clean, classic newborn photos that you will enjoy for years (and maybe even generations!) to come.
This family had just welcomed their new baby boy home. Enjoy a few from their session!

I’ve been a supporter of the San Carlos Educational Foundation (SCEF) since I started my photography business 15 years ago. Sadly, California public schools are underfunded, especially compared to the rest of the country. We rely on support from parents and other donors to supplement and enrich the resources available to our community schools. Every year I photograph students and teachers in classrooms to create dynamic images that show how the contributions to the SCEF are having an impact in our schools. This week SCEF led an awareness event called “Stand Up for Schools” in which students, parents, teachers and other community members gathered to get the message out that our already underfunded schools are facing further cutbacks.
I grabbed my camera bags and multiple lenses to go to Burton Park in San Carlos where enthusiastic parents and kids were working hard on creating signs. I then headed to a spot along El Camino where a large crowd had gathered. They received lots of positive responses from cars driving by honking and waving to show support for our schools.
I had to do some fast camera lens swapping to alternate between capturing wide angle shots of the news interviews and zoomed shots of the group from across the street. Here are a few photos that I captured, some of which were published by the San Mateo Daily Journal:
Making posters in advance of the event.
ABC News provided live coverage on their newscast. The kids were very excited for the opportunity to not only be on TV but also to see how the news video and interviews are created.
It was great to be able to support our public schools and provide the local newspaper with some images for publication. For more information about the San Carlos Educational Foundation go to scefkids.org. I am happy to have the opportunity to volunteer my photography services to this terrific foundation.
I love photographing events, whether it is a Bat Mitzvah, birthday party, gala dinner or professional/corporate event. If you have any upcoming events that you would like captured call me at 650 631 8284.
Just before Christmas I had the opportunity to photograph this lovely family. They really wanted their session to include the golden California hills and grasses. I suggested that we shoot at Edgewood County Park in San Carlos. We met just before sunset to create some sun-kissed images for them. I feel so fortunate to be a photographer here in the San Francisco Bay Area where the weather is wonderful for outdoor on-location photography sessions year-round. Enjoy!
