Newborn sessions are a rarity for me! It’s not because I don’t love them, but because our newborn sessions are focused on natural, candid moments and intimate family connection. While I love those snuggly wrapped babes, it is not something we offer. When a couple is excited about those organic, lifestyle moments, however, I am overjoyed. This was no exception for Marc & Julia’s newest.

Never have I seen a brighter, more curated nursery than in Marc & Julia’s home airy home for their sweet new baby girl. These three—and their charming nursery—deserve to be in a magazine. I’m so honored to have had the chance to capture this short moment for them.

Here’s to more baby snuggles and bright nurseries.



















Lifestyle newborn and family sessions are booked on a first come, first served basis with limited openings. As our wedding photography calendar continues to fill up, we are sad to miss out on more moments with our amazing clients.

To best serve our Blossom & Pine couples, we are reserving time in our calendar for specific contents. If you’d like to secure a date, please let us know as soon as possible!

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.
