I shot these editorial photographs in Bodega Bay in the San Francisco Bay area of Sophia and I loved how moody the feel turned out. She also had fun getting playful and showing the free spirited side to her as she modeled different looks. Being a fashion and editorial photographer in San Francisco and Sonoma County I get to have the most incredible backdrops for fashion layouts.
Ellie wanted her senior portrait to have a fashion and editorial style so I photographed Ellie with all the cool backdrops in her hometown of Petaluma, CA and encouraged her to have fun while I snapped a way. I love this girl. She is free as a bird in her expression!

So wonderful to be a fashion and editorial photographer in the San Francisco Bay area when you have the lovely Tallulah behind your lens. She donned a couple of different wigs and got intuitively into character and we played pretend all day. What's more fun than that? This fashion editorial spread is the proof of how hard we played! xoxo
Loved photographing this fashion advertising campaign for J Crew's Fall Collection with these gorgeous wool and tweed coats.

Fun and darling to photograph this San Francisco Bay Area Fashion campaign in Petaluma CA. Love photographing in the mustard fields, an airstream camper and all around the country to get amazing colorful and vital children's fashion and lifestyle photos!
Love getting to photograph fashion and beauty campaigns in the San Francisco Bay Area! Such a whimsical and magical fashion photo shoot for a local fragrance company. Shot in an editorial fashion sequence as well.
I loved getting to photograph Sean Hayes and his family in his hometown of Petaluma, CA as that is the place where his heart and soul resides. It was typical Northern California day with fog and rain yet that didn't stop the singing. The boys played with umbrellas and we had a blast photographing the love in this family!
What's so exhilarating about shooting really great actors is that they are so uninhibited...Totally free. Not arrogant but comfortable in their own skin. Without a line of dialogue or one hint towards a character Joshua Henry just flowed at The De Young Museum. I got the freedom to look for light, composition, and backgrounds while he just did his "thing". And he did it with gracious ease. Hamilton Musical 💫✨

The Griffo Distillery is in my hometown of Petaluma, CA and I'm proud to say it's the best darn whiskey you will ever have. Michael and Jenny are just awesome and have this to say about their family owned business in Sonoma County. It's always fun to do an advertising campaign in your own backyard so to speak!
We founded Griffo Distillery in Petaluma, California, to create premium, small-batch spirits that showcase the beauty and bounty of Sonoma County.
We're a family-run operation with an emphasis on high quality, California-grown ingredients and meticulous craftsmanship. From formal analysis to custom still controls of our own design, we infuse every step of the spirit-making process with ingenuity and precision—merging craft and science to create spirits that are both beautiful and complex.
We make spirits just the way we like them. We think you'll like them too. ---Michael and Jenny Griffo
It's hard to find a beautiful laptop bag these days so when I saw these bags I was excited to do their photo campaign shoot.c I love being an editorial photographer as it trained me to be a story teller with a high fashion tone. I love this designer bag fashion campaign and scouting the best locations to highlight this laptop bag. Here's to strong women around the world so you still look gorgeous as you create your vision.
Zac Posen is a fashion icon and his bravado on Project Runway is one to behold. It was an honor to photograph him when he was in San Francisco for a runway show at Neiman Marcus. He was interviewed by Juliet Belkin for Jolie Gazette and you can read it here: https://www.joliegazette.com/the-talk-4/zacposen
He was as provocative, confident and charismatic as you would expect from someone with so much talent and success right out of the gate. Bravo!
I had the pleasure of photographing gorgeous Tomiko. She radiates love and compassion and not only talks the talk but walks the walk. Many blessings her way. xo
MIchael Des Barres is never at a shortage for words as his mind races at a speed most of us can't even fathom. He is very poignant and virtuous in his mindfulness and I love him dearly. Getting him taped up for this celebrity portrait shoot was fun because it was so hard for him NOT to talk. We found this NO WAR sign in Venice, CA which is such a reflection of Michael Des Barres personal values. If you ever get a chance to see him play don't walk...RUN!
