3 months. It’s been 3 months since my last session and well, I was nervous. More like nervous-excited.

If Kat and David’s engagement session had an epic blockbuster movie title, it would be entitled “Kat + David: The Last Engagement Session.” Kat and David’s Woodside Redwoods engagement was one for the books to say the least. A quick rewind. It was about a week before the engagement session, when I had checked the […]

It was a warm day in February when I made my way down to Gilroy to meet Katianna for an at-home maternity in San Jose. With a forecast of 75 degrees, it felt more like early spring (minus the allergies, thank God). As I made my way towards the beautiful white mid-century styled home, I […]
