Doug + Annika . Expecting . Singapore and San FranciscoFebruary 10, 2014

This is a story of two birthdays. Well, I guess three, really! I had the honor to document Doug and Annika’s pregnancy with a maternity session in their home of Singapore last February, days before their son was born and on Doug’s birthdays of all days. Five months later, two had become three, and we captured some family photos near their new home in the San Francisco Bay Area. This time, it was Annika’s birthday. Yes, a total coincidence, both times!

If you’re a photography blog junkie, you might recognize Doug and Annika from their epic Icelandic wedding as captured by the amazing guys at Nordica. I try not to over use the word “epic,” but this time it’s definitely fitting. They’re two of the best people I know, so my heart has grown for this special little boy, already a world traveler. Please enjoy the set and try not to lose it over the baby buns!

Brown Family . Expecting . Menlo Park, CAOctober 23, 2011

2011 is a year of big changes for the Brown family. It started with a transition from their life in New York City to settling in to their beautiful, cozy home in the San Francisco Bay Area. And very soon, the family of three will welcome a little brother or sister for nearly-2-year-old Annabel.

I spent a gorgeous fall Sunday morning at the Brown’s home in Menlo Park as they got the house ready and shared in joyful anticipation for the baby-to-come. While Dad assembled the crib, Annabel helped Mom organize the baby’s new toys, which sparked some sweet nostalgia as she met some of her early toys for the first time in a long while. Tom and Maria are warm, calm, loving parents to little Annabel and I know the new arrival will be completely cherished. Congratulations to the Brown family; I can’t wait to meet him or her!
