Portraits in Palo Alto


Karen and Ron are so much fun! We had a fun time playing around in the park, and at their place, and then they made me dinner! Yum. Thanks guys!

Faye and her puppets

Faye is an amazing artist. She is a puppeteer like nothing I had ever imagined when I heard the word puppeteer. She conceptualizes, writes, builds, and performs theatrical shows which include puppets ranging from four inches tall to 12 feet tall (see photo of giant feet)! Absolutely amazing.

The G-R Family Photos at the Beach



I’m looking forward to shooting the oldest daughter’s Bat Mitzvah very soon. It’s going to be great!


The Jarboe Family


Kathy, Eric, and Gabe – Sennot Park Central Square to 1369 Coffeehouse – A Roving Family Photo Session!


I got a great workout doing this family portrait session. This is a very active family. We started out at their home, then jumped on wheels (skateboard and bike) and took off for Washington Park, in Cambridge. Fun. Then off for a coffee at 1369 Coffeehouse in Inman Square. I got in a bit of a jog. Good deal. Fun time.

Stephanie and Ryan are getting married!




I really wanted to take these engagement photos of Stephanie and Ryan. I love engagement shoots. I get to know the couple better, they get used to the camera, and we have some laughs together. I hope these photos will not only be fun now, but provide good memories fifty years from now, and a look into their world back when they were engaged.

I am really excited to be shooting Stephanie and Ryan’s wedding. They are both very creative and warm people, and their wedding plans sound so fun and personal. I love that.

P.S. I’d love to know which photos people think are their faves : )

What a lovely afternoon we had at Adan’s house. We went from being cozy by the stove, to flying airplanes, to being magpies. The magpies had an extraordinary amount of energy. And apparently these birds are quite loud…
Much fun was had.

Tracey runs Agassiz Cooperative Preschool–a really creative and engaging place. I have gotten to know many extraordinary families there. Only much later did I learn that they were olympians, rock stars, famous photographers, and earth savers. Modest folk. Love it.

She has two styles–modern/funky, and traditional. She has been trained by some of the biggest names in book binding. Check out her work here.
