I should have known when I was greeted at the door by two little boys who immediately introduced themselves (with their full names)…and then grabbed my hand to lead me on a tour of  their home…that Sunday morning was going to be great.  We played Memory, built a home inside the home with couch cushions, went deer-watching, dressed up for Halloween, and danced in a deluge (ok, they danced while I took pictures).  Even the pouring rain was just another play thing for these two beautiful kids.  Very special thanks to Jon and Dayna for inviting me into their home to capture some images of their boys.


Three-month-old Bridget recently traveled from San Francisco to New York for an extended visit with family (accompanied by mom and dad, of course).   It was the first time Bridget met her big cousin, Nicholas, and a great opportunity for some family pictures.  Nicholas had just started walking one week before and absolutely loves the camera…and not just posing for it.  Perfect weather and a beautiful beach provided a gorgeous setting.  Sarah and Eric, thanks for letting me be a part of your day.


As difficult as it feels sometimes, I’m learning that there is a lot of value in being seen, known, and understood…its the whole being open part that I find so challenging.  This image of the wife of a close friend (taken at a recent wedding) is a friendly reminder of that.  When Beatrice pays attention, she seems to look into you…and always with love.  True friends always care about how you’re doing…and somehow manage to never judge.

    That image gave me wonderful chills… beautiful picture and words… thank you, thank you, thank you… can’t wait to show Bea.

  • Thank you, Bridget. I am lucky enough to be surrounded constantly by great people.

  • Mary, thank you so much for the kind words. I’m really glad that you enjoy the images and definitely appreciate your feedback. Good luck settling down after what sounds like a fabulous trip to Asia.

  • Wow. I’ve been scrolling through all of your posts here and I find your pictures absolutely stunning.

    Looking at your pictures makes me want to pick up my camera right now. Thanks for the motivation!

    All the best, Mary

  • This picture makes it so easy to see that your words are true. She pays deep loving attention. Wow! She’s great. It must be really nice to be appreciated by you, too.

Last weekend, during a trip to Boston, we got a chance to drive out to Reading, MA to spend an afternoon with Caren and her family.  Caren is a good friend from business school, and I had never met her husband, Evan, or her children.   They were as fantastic as Caren, and I documented the good times with a few images.  Naturally.


Sarah and I met at SFO on the way to Europe.  In 2006.  And we haven’t seen one another since.  Small world coincidences worked their magic, and she asked me to take some photos of her this weekend, which I was more than happy to do!   The shoot basically amounted to our first (and only, I suppose) in-person catch-up session.  The weather was typically summery for San Francisco….blustery, 60’s, and foggy.  But we still had lots fun.  And who knows, we might hang out again before another 4 years passes.
