I Paint My Dream | A Lifestyle Family Session {Sonoma County, Santa Rosa, Petaluma Family Photographer}

I dream my painting and I paint my dream. ~ Vincent Van Gogh

Working with these three was an absolute dream and I loved seeing their adoration for their daughter, Audrina. This sweet girl has a sparkle in her eyes and that beauty and innocence of childhood just shined in her. I loved our time together and we couldn’t have asked for a more perfect early winter afternoon. I can’t wait until the next time I get to capture this beautiful clan.

A Motherhood Story on the Farm {Sonoma County + Marin County Lifestyle Family Photographer}

Let us dance in the sun and wear wild flowers in our hair, let us huddle together as darkness takes over. ~ Susan Polis Schutz

Capturing this beautiful Motherhood Story on the farm completely stole my heart, moved me and reminded me how precious this fleeting time is. These sweet girls danced in the sun, explored and played, picking apples and eating pluots, until the sun set on this magical summer evening. Sessions like this where the magic and beauty of childhood are so poignant are pure food for my soul. These Motherhood Stories are quickly becoming my favorite thing to capture, they tell such a story of hope, love and beauty. Thanks for such a perfect memory Valorie, this one was so close to my heart.

A special thank you to ETC Designs for hosting us at her beautiful West County Sebastopol farm and for the lovely florals. Hair and Makeup by Yndia George at Daredevils + Queens Salon.

Little Boy, You Remind Me How, So Much Depends on Days of Now {Sonoma County + Marin County Family Photographer}

Little boy, you remind me how, so much depends on days of now….

This quote has always stood out to me, a constant reminder of how precious childhood truly is. This family was just a dream to capture…their love exudes their every interaction. And these three incredible, fiesty and fun boys portray the meaning of childhood and wonder. What a gift to see inside this beautiful family and document these days that seem so long, yet go by so fast.

Sweet, Sweet Motherhood | Carolyn + Her Loves {Sonoma County Family + Child Photographer}

When we walked in fields of gold……

Capturing the pure and true love between a Mother and her children always completely captivates me. This journey of Motherhood is such a complete gift, it has allowed my heart to feel in ways I never even knew existed and has given my life so much meaning and purpose. I cherish each and every image of me and my loves because I know this time is fleeting and this part of my story will always be my favorite chapter. Capturing this joy and these tender moments for other Mamas truly moves me. For I know that this love, right here, often feels like home. I would be completely honored to tell your beloved Motherhood story.

The Sweetest Friends at the Sonoma Coast | Callahan Quinn’s Fifth Birthday { Sonoma County/Bodega Bay Children’s Photographer}

Be with those who help your being…..

These beautiful five girlies have been friends since birth and every late summer we gather to photograph their joy. It has been an amazing way to document my daughter and create cherished keepsakes with her friends. And this year was no exception. It truly was a magical day out at the Sonoma Coast….the girls ran and played, endless twirls and laughter. And, their outfits from Lacey Lane were pretty much the icing on the cake.

I still cannot believe our daughter is five….five whole years we have been blessed with her. She is truly one of my most favorite people…carefree, kind, funny, joyous and that perfect mix of sugar and spice. Five whole years of being blessed to be her Mommy. How did I ever get so lucky?

And these friendships, they are pure gold.
