GIANTS’ BASEBALL THEMED NEWBORN SESSION IN DANVILLE, CALIFORNIA | SAWYER FAMILY

Steph and Jon are the type of people that exude friendliness. They’re positive, outgoing, and want to be your friend. I met Steph back in the early 2000’s when she was my bible study leader in high school and I’m so glad we stayed in touch. I was honored when they asked me to do both a maternity photoshoot and newborn / family photographs. If you can’t already tell, these two LOVE baseball. And not just any baseball, the San Francisco Giants. When I walked into cute little Finley’s room, I was greeted by energetic orange, a bat signed from a recent World Series championship game, and adorable baseball themed decor. Don’t forget the little one who rocked his Giants’ onesie.

INDUSTRIAL GOLDEN WEDDING INSPIRATION | CALLIGRAPHY DETAILS | FEATURED ON INSPIRED BY THIS

“When a wedding inspiration photoshoot goes really well, it sparks so many beautiful new ideas! This is one of those… Anna Perevertaylo teamed up with some pretty talented vendors to create this industrial golden wedding inspiration. And boy! is it magical. (Heart flutters type of magical). We see gold a lot – but we don’t see gold florals a lot. Here, in combination with soft pinks and creamy whites, they are seriously stunning. Try not to do a double take, we dare you!” – Inspired By This Wedding Blog

ANNIVERSARY SHOOT IN YOSEMITE VALLEY | VANESSA & LUKE

I had the pleasure of braving the cold of Yosemite Valley for an Anniversary Yosemite Photoshoot in the middle of winter with my dear friend Lauren of Lauren Alisse Photography. She is a total sweetheart and you need to check her out! It’s wonderful to have talented, creative friends who guide you as you both walk through this journey. Now, Vanessa and Luke were just too cute! They braved the cold in their stylish outfits (how cute is that glitter skirt from Rent the Runway?!) and celebrated two years of marriage. I wish them nothing but happiness in the coming years.
