John Muir Medical Center Birth Story

 This birth was kind of a crazy one. A crazy one in that it felt like Mama just might be pregnant forever.;)Or at least 3 cm forever. As the photographer and thrice-time-birth-er, I know Mama is fully deserving of major eye rolling right about now since she was the one doing all the pregnant and laboring. And man, did she do it with grace and style. I joined her and dad in the early morning at John Muir Medical Center after walking around being said 3 cm for well over a week. Her water broke {hooray!} so it definitely meant baby girl would join us very very soon. Much to everyone’s happiness and extended anticipation. We attempted to sleep while she worked from 6cm to 10… like teenage girls attempt to sleep during a girl-fest sleepover. Well, us girls did that anyway. Dad was really truly trying to sleep. Sorry, dude!;)

And then after a laborious {yet super short for a first-timer} hour of pushing, sweet baby girl was born. And both Mama and Dad got that beautiful, awe-struck look in their eyes that makes capturing moments like these totally worth it.

Enjoy this birth story!

Baby Photographer Pleasanton


This sweet one came into the studio and I was smitten immediately! I am a sucker for a baby with hair. It’s pretty bad actually. Like, I don’t want to give those babies back. Nothing wrong with bald babies. Heck, all three of mine were. Perhaps that’s why fully-locked babes have such a hold on me– something I never had. Ha! Anyway, this sweet one had a fabulous session and we got lots of adorable props in. We also got some adorable awake images at Mama’s request. Favorite new headband also used.;)

Enjoy some of my favorites from our time together!

Maternity Photography Alamo Bay Area

This sweet couple and I are currently waiting for some labor and delivery action.;)It’s great with clients book a maternity add-on with their birth because we get to meet under conditions that make it a bit easier to get to chat than during birth. Ha! This sweet couple was so much fun to work with and were basically up for anything. My Mama wardrobe offerings were utilized once again, and one of my favorite maxi dresses looked fabulous on this Mama.

Enjoy some of my very favorites from our session together! And be on the look out for a birth video with this cute couple so very soon!
