The Vaughn Family

A couple weeks back I had the pleasure of photographing Katherine & Jordan and their adorable son, Will. We were originally planning on shooting at the Botanical Gardens, but last minute Katherine suggested we shoot at Samford University. For all the years that Lance has worked at Samford University, I've never shot on campus; I'm so glad I finally got to for Katherine, Jordan, and Will's shoot. It couldn't have been more perfect; Samford was covered in fall colors, the flowers were in full bloom, and the light was gorgeous. 

I had so much fun photographing the Vaughn family. Will was simply the most adorable little guy. He'd give the sweetest little expressions, including a why-is-strange-lady-pointing-a-camera-at-me face. I love seeing how families interact with each other, like the way Will's face lights up when Jordan talks to him or the way Will gives Katherine kisses. It's just sweet all around.

San Francisco Maternity Session | Denise & Ryan

It must be baby season. I don't know if it's a coincidence or what but the beginning of this year was full of babies and pregnant ladies.  And strangely enough, I don't have any baby/maternity clients during wedding season.  I really love pregnant ladies and babies, so I was happy to photograph Denise and Ryan for their maternity session a couple months back.  Ryan, a man after my own heart, is an architect.  He chose all these wonderful spots that any architect would truly love.  We started at Bernal Heights Park, with it's magnificent view of the city, then headed to Lands Ends where we took a peace stroll along the side of the coast.

It was such a beautiful day, and I loved seeing them again!
