Featured in the Knot Northern California

Check out the Fall/ Winter 2010 issue of the Knot Northern California! There is a lovely interview with my fabulous planner friend Jess Flood in their "special wine country section", and several of my images illustrate her thoughts nicely. Fun!

Symphony and Harper "outtakes"

Behind the scenes from cousin Harper's 1 week old photo shoot, Symphony was a little bully!

You can see she started out very cute and innocent looking with Auntie C:

And then instead of sharing nicely, gave Harper a knuckle sandwich:

Little troublemaker!

Or maybe she was sharing her favorite things (her fingers)?

Either way, it tired her out:

I can't wait until these little girls can run around playing together and, even better, we can embarrass them with these photos!

Sunset Magazine's Celebration Weekend

I had the best time shooting Sunset Magazine's Wine Club VIP lounge at their Celebration Weekend back in June. My good friends at Jess Flood Events coordinated the lounge and it looked fabulous. Plus, it was cool photographing a part of Sunset's offices that most people don't get to see, even during the Celebration Weekends. The magazine is so beautifully designed, and this building had me imagining working there in the fabulous 1960s and photographing some of those 50s and 60s amazing retro trends in architecture and design (many of which are coming back through fashion).

Here is some of the dirt (there's probably a fancier wine name for it - part of the terroir?) from one of the wineries, I loved that they brought it.


I thought the succulents were a lovely element in the adobe-chic kind of feel of Sunset's buildings. Very Western yet very beautiful.

Jessie pretend drinking wine for me:

It was about 10 million degrees outside but everyone had a great time exploring the Sunset grounds anyway. Great food, tons of very cool displays and samples and demonstrations. I can't wait for next year!

Here I am geeking out, admiring the big mirrors in the ladies' bathroom, and the 60's style tapestry.

And no blog post would be complete without a photo of my adorable assistants:

You can see more on Jess's blog. Thanks to Jess Flood and her team and everyone at Sunset for making us so welcome, even with the baby in tow!

Symphony is 3 months old

And she is adorable!
(I know I'm biased, but, c'mon)

I have a ton of photos to edit from the past few months' fabulous weddings, so poor Symphony will have to wait to have her portraits edited and shared. I fear that we will always been at least a month behind with photos of her, our lovely girl is growing so fast!

Here she is, "talking" up a storm:

And snuggling with her favorite kitty:

Oh, wow... I am so excited for the final, printed version of the Gluten Free Desserts cookbook I photographed for the Gluten Free Lab! It's coming soon, and it's going to make me drool all over again. Big thanks to my girls of the GF Lab and notion:creative for including me!
