When Taylor and Meghan asked me to do an in-home newborn session near Houlton, I was so excited. These moments are so intimate and precious that I honestly can’t imagine doing a newborn session any other way.

It helps that Taylor and Meghan are perfect models and have an AMAZING house. But the real show winner was Maizie. I don’t know what it is about sweet little faces that make me all teary and gushy, but Maize has it. Such a sweet little one, and already so overwhelmingly loved.

I loved how these newborn photos turned out. Hopefully I will have the chance to photograph near Houlton, Maine more often! I am so excited to watch this family grow and to hopefully capture a few more moments of it.

Thanks for including me in such a special time, you guys.

Sunstone villa flanked by olive trees--a wedding venue in Santa Ynez, Calfornia built with old-world, European charm

In the world of California venues, there are many that take your breath and offer a luxurious space to enjoy your day. Sunstone is one of the most iconic. Noted for it’s old-world charm and homey interior, this space feels less like you’re getting married at an estate and more like you’re getting married at home. Your very, very beautiful, Tuscan-inspired home.

Nestled just to the east of the Napa River, this beautiful resort is home to a variety of modern farmhouse-inspired suites and bungalows, intermixed through the grape vines. Guests enjoy the privacy of their own lodgings with the ease of a weekend together, making this spot an ideal home base for a weekend of festivities. Accessible from three airports, Oakland, San Francisco, and Sacramento, Stanly Ranch is ideal for relaxed destination weddings.

As a wedding photographer, I am asked over and over how much film I shot at weddings, etc. Short answer? I wasn’t. But now I think this is a small joy I’ll continue granting myself.
