I’m always saying how much I love being part of my clients stories, how much it moves to walk into their home and see pictures I’ve taken on their walls, to know that I play a part in capturing moments, emotions, expressions and freezing time even if only for a few seconds.  Jessica and her adorable children are a perfect example,  we did a family session about two years ago and the other day her son Josh was looking at the pictures on their wall and said “Mom we need new pictures, it’s time for an update.”  Smart kid, or should I say man as he is now 16 and has facial hair and is starting to plan for college (time flies!!!).

So last Saturday I met them at their new place near Jack London square and we had a blast shooting in their new hood.  Can’t wait until next time!


Here’s a little sneak peak from our shoot at the Farmer’s market two years ago…
