Little girls in tulle dresses . . .

(c) eLLe PHOTOGRAPHY(c) eLLe PHOTOGRAPHY (c) eLLe PHOTOGRAPHY (c) eLLe PHOTOGRAPHYI will forever be a total girly girl & I will always love a dress with tulle and ruffles.  Accordingly, I loved doing this photo shoot with a couple of kids that reminded me of me and my sister a very long time ago.

Family Shoot – Shoreline Park

(c) eLLe PHOTOGRAPHY (c) eLLe PHOTOGRAPHY (c) eLLe PHOTOGRAPHY (c) eLLe PHOTOGRAPHYIt’s always such an honor and a privilege when a family I shoot asks me to come back and take their photos again.  I first met these folks when their oldest was a little over a year, and we took photos at Shoreline Park.  They’ve now got a second little guy who’s the same age his brother was when we did that shoot, and we met up again.  It’s so cool getting to watch the kids grow up.  (It’s also kind of fun seeing how my style has changed a bit – I still favor real moments, but these days I’m liking film-esque colors for processing.)

It is holiday card season . . .

(c) eLLe PHOTOGRAPHY (c) eLLe PHOTOGRAPHY (c) eLLe PHOTOGRAPHY (c) eLLe PHOTOGRAPHY (c) eLLe PHOTOGRAPHY (c) eLLe PHOTOGRAPHYHi kids – sorry it’s been a while since I’ve posted.  It is the time of year that is my favorite time and the busy time – holiday card season.  I know it sounds early to be thinking about this & I put even posting about it up there with the stores putting out Halloween candy in August, but it’s the truth.  Here’s the start of a few shoots from this year – this is my sister & her sweet family.  I can’t help but to show off a few of my favorites.

San Francisco City Hall Elopement on Classic Bride Today!

http://classicbrideblog.com/(c) eLLe PHOTOGRAPHYHead on over to Classic Bride today to revisit one of my favorite San Francisco City Hall elopements & you might want to linger for a bit – Sarah’s revamped the blog a bit & it’s easier to navigate through all the pretty images she features.  It’s always such an honor to be featured on one of my most favorite blogs & even more so when someone who sees thousands of weddings a day remembers and re-features one that we did!

I’m back with TV doctors

(c) eLLe PHOTOGRAPHY (c) eLLe PHOTOGRAPHY (c) eLLe PHOTOGRAPHYThey’re not really TV doctors, actually, but don’t they look like it?  These are a few stock photos I recently shot for Golden Gate Urgent Care.  If you are in San Francisco and you find yourself in need of an ER, I cannot say enough nice things about these doctors.  I was lucky enough to meet them when I wasn’t sick (although my instagram feed featuring these folks confused a few people, including my Mom, who all thought I was actually in the ER and taking pictures – I assure you all, as much as I love photography, that’s the last thing I’d do in that situation) and I couldn’t get over how genuinely nice and caring they were.  I also think they look pretty great in their new photos too.

I hope you all are doing well.  I’m finally returning to this little blog and the editing room after a little time off.

Taking a little vacation

(c) eLLe PHOTOGRAPHYHi everyone – I’m taking a little vacation this week (I’ll be around but stepping away from the blog for a few days).  In the meantime, here’s a few photos from a family reunion I did recently – I just love and adore this family (do you recognize Baby Stella??).

In Memory of Wal-Tah, the Cat

(c) eLLe PHOTOGRAPHYThe internet tells me it’s international cat day, and articles showcasing the mysterious lives of cats are making their way around my web feeds.  They all make me think of Walter (correctly pronounced Wal-Tah, when referring to Walter the cat), who was the sweetest cat who ever walked this planet.  Walter didn’t belong to me, he was my friend’s cat, but I adored him.  When she’d go on vacation, I’d babysit him, and we’d spend quality time together.  He liked to watch crummy television with me (he was really partial to the Real Housewives of Orange County), and he was also a gem about posing for photos from time to time.  In this one, he’s really got the “smize” down (he also liked Top Model a lot).  Sadly, Walter died a few years ago from heart problems, and I still miss the little guy.  He loved people, and he loved to curl up on your shoulder and keep you company.  I hope he’s off playing on a big farm somewhere.
