my cousin luca is a high school graduate! a few weeks ago we drove to sacramento to attend his graduation party at his grandma's house. i'd never been to emma & hersh's home but they have a beautiful backyard perfect for a graduation party!

alec wasn't too happy about going to sacramento because of the heat but we lucked out... it was one of those awesome warm summer nights. it was nice to see everyone and hang out.

luca and his friends are off for a european trip before heading to college in the fall. he & stasi are going to SFSU, my alma mater. see you crazy kids in san francisco.

congratulations luca!

Juliet is One

last weekend i went to juliet's first birthday party in san francisco. the morning started off a little foggy but by the time the party got started it was sunny!

i have more photos to come in the next week... another wedding, 4th of july and my cousin's graduation party.

here's the birthday girl with her family & friends.


i love the look on her face. she's looking at a polaroid i took of her minutes before.


the pixie fairy was there to entertain the kids and do some face painting. the boys opted for arm painting instead. a snake and a train on their arms.

this dad was having fun

the yummy butterfly cupcakes made by juliet's mom

Jennifer + Jason

i worked with pat mazzera second shooting jennifer & jason's wedding in the presidio a couple sundays ago. they picked a beautiful day & location to be married. as you may know summer in san francisco doesn't necessarily mean it'll be a clear sunny day especially in the presidio. the couple had one ceremony in the chapel and another korean tea ceremony at the golden gate club. i'd never shot a korean ceremony so i was in for a treat. the tea ceremony was touching with all the family coming up to give their well wishes & advice for the couple. after the ceremonies they celebrated in the large reception room at the golden gate club into the night.

jennifer's dad gave a great speech which had everyone laughing!
