Amazing 6 Year Anniversary "Candy" Gift Idea: Hayes Valley Mommy & Me Photo Session

I had to share this adorable mommy & me session. In a stroke of genius, Lauren came up with an idea to give her husband a photo book themed "candy" for their traditional 6 year anniversary gift. Together, we came up with visiting a candy store, and the best one I know of is Miette in Hayes Valley. Not only is everything delicious, but the shop is as cute as can be, and it's in one of the most colorful and vibrant neighborhoods in San Francisco. 

I have limited mini sessions coming up on 11/4 in this same neighborhood and have 1 or 2 slots left. Email me if you're interested! Here's a preview!

Happy anniversary, Matt & Lauren! 

Kristin & Jared's San Francisco Headshots

This gorgeous couple came to visit San Francisco from the South Bay to enjoy the sunset over some new headshots, and we ended just in time for them to explore the amazing Hayes Valley for dinner. There are some new art installations on display on Octavia Street, and we took advantage of the amazing colors that came out dusk. Great to catch up with you, Kristin and Jared! Here are some of my favorite shots:

Life(Style Portraits) Begins After Coffee!

All my life, I've been a night person. I stay up late enjoying all parts of life (including editing photos, haha), but in turn, I've never been a morning person. With our crazy schedules, Gina and I decided to meet at 7:30AM in San Francisco's Hayes Valley. The sun was low in the sky, no one was on the streets, and the businesses were closed... except Artís Coffee! We grabbed a couple of perfectly caffeinated lattes and let the fun began!

We visited our favorite spots in the area, including the Painted Ladies by Alamo Park, Golden Gate Park's Redwood Grove and Conservatory of Flowers, and of course the beautiful Golden Gate Bridge. Check out my favorite shots from our session below.

Gina, you're gonna make a morning person out of me. =)
