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!

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 💫✨

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
