Most of the time I photograph young kids, but every so often I get requests to photograph families with grown children- it’s so fun! The B family spent a few weeks in San Francisco visiting their son who is here attending college. They wanted to take advantage of the fact that the whole family was in one place, and decided to document it! We had fun at the Palace of Fine Arts- I really enjoyed getting to know them!


I mean, come on. How cute is Zoey?! She was a little shy when I first met her, but it only took her a few minutes to warm up to me and show me those adorable dimples. We shot at my favorite location, Cavallo Point in Sausalito. I loved getting to know this family and I look forward to seeing them again in the future!


Three boys! Sarah, you are supermom! Not only was Sarah super lovely and nice, she was so patient and amazing with her boys. I loved getting to know them and I’m so lucky the chose me as to document this special time in their lives. Oh, and did I mention Miles was 11 pounds at birth?! Again, Sarah, you are supermom :) Congratulations you guys!


I love when clients have fun ideas for their photography sessions! Chris and April picked Tilden Park in Berkeley as the backdrop and they brought lettuce and celery to feed the animals at the petting zoo. So cute! We ended at a beautiful overlook with minutes to spare before the sun disappeared. I can’t wait to photograph their little baby soon!


I met the wonderful M family at a beautiful park in Walnut Creek for their holiday family photos. It was right before sunset so the lighting was gorgeous. I know Marisa left the session feeling like we didn’t get any good shots, so her email to me after viewing the gallery put a huge smile on my face. I always tell people to trust me!

“Katie!!! I’m obsessed !!!!! Thank you SO much. I could not be happier. The best part about you is that I always walk away wondering how could any of those come out good with how hectic the kids are … and then you deliver magic :) We really haven’t taken any family photos since Luke was born so I treasure these.”


Happy birthday, Tanner and Austin! What a fun year this has been documenting your trip around the sun. I am so lucky to have such amazing clients- it never feels like work with these guys. I can’t wait to see you again as the boys get bigger!


Such a happy little guy! He is going to be a big brother in the new year, so his parents wanted to document their special time as a family of three. We shot at my favorite location, Cavallo Point in Sausalito. It has so many wonderful backdrops and it’s never crowded. I used to shoot at Crissy Field a lot when I first started out because everyone wanted photos with the bridge, but now I also encourage people to head over the bridge to this side of the water because it’s so much better (in my opinion)!


Hudson was about 1 month at the time of his newborn photography session and what a little bundle of joy he was! His parents live in San Jose, so I rented a Breather space in SOMA for the session. It worked out perfectly! Not only was the space inside super cute, there was also a nice courtyard with wonderful ivy walls out front. I’m so glad they decided to do the session. Congratulations you guys!


My husband and I took photos with our daughter when she was about this age, and they are such a treasured gift for us now. It’s hard to imagine how much your child will grow and change, but now that she’s 5, we look back on the photos with such love and nostalgia. I’m so glad that my clients see the value in documenting these fleeing moments- I promise you it’s something you will never regret!


I can’t believe this session completes my second First Year session with this wonderful family. I remember when I first met Sara and Patrick for their maternity session, and now they are a busy family of four. Joaquin Miller Park served as a great backdrop for the photos. I want to go back there soon!
