Rockridge Day Spa

If you live in Oakland, you need to check out Rockridge Day Spa! I’ve been going here for years and this month I’ve begun updating their photography. We started with headshots of the whole staff and last week they threw a bridal event where I set up a table of pictures. Check out the eyelash comparison. It makes me want lash extensions every day. Enjoy!

Lover’s Lane and Baker Beach.

There are just too many fabulous pictures from Nicole and David’s engagement shoot for just 1 post, so I’m doing it in two. First stop, Lover’s Lane—have a look at these and let me know what you think! I have been going to this spot for a few years and have never seen it so green, so if you’re waiting on engagement pictures, now is the time!

The Martins

Meet the Martins. They found me on yelp before their baby was born and I got the opportunity to meet her when she was just a few weeks old. The way I see it, there are 2 different kinds of family portraits: the ones outside under a tree or at a set location with perfect light, or the ones in a home where anything can happen—the light could be harsh or non existent. But the best part about taking pictures in a home is that everyone is in their element.
