Cardinal Family So sweet to see these two brothers together. Their age difference has no impact on their closeness and it was really neat to see their dynamic.

Posner Kid Photo Session, Mill Valley, CA This fun session in Mill Valley was a hit! It was windy and a little chilly, but the kids were such great sports. One my favorite aspects of being a family photographer is being able to see and capture the dynamic between family members, namely, in this shoot, siblings! You could tell that they really love each other and have a lot of fun together.

Pacifica holds a special place in my heart, as I used to live there before moving to Marin. I was so excited to be asked to come photograph little Josie for a sunny day beach session. Isn't she the cutest?

Sheppard Family-Mill Valley Family Photography

The Bay Area is filled with many homes and buildings that are incredibly rich in history. If walls could talk, they would tell many tales of shared bottles of wine, great conversations with friends over dinner, cries and coos of newborn babes, the giggles of children, the scoffing of teenagers and the silence of an empty nest, all too soon to be filled again with the sounds of grandchildren!

The history of homes in the Bay Area has always been interesting to me. I was especially excited to learn that this beautiful home in Mill Valley, now inhabited by Katy, James and Lucy had been in Katy's family for over 3 generations. She showed me a spread of beautiful images hanging on the wall that were taken in this home over the years; of her grandmother, her father, her and her sister when they were little. At the end of this framed photo spread, there were   two spaces where they were wanting to hang a couple from our session once shot, edited and printed.

I was so honored to be called to produce images of the latest generation in this home!


Here is a sneak peek from our session this weekend. With this cutie-pie, getting some great shots for those spaces on the wall was an easy feat. The hard part will be choosing which two! :)

One of my favorite things about my job (besides getting to work with cutie-pies like this) is getting to style a scene. I have so much fun going to local flea markets for old wooden crates, antique watering cans, old suitcases, (the list really does go on and I am running out of room to store them! :)

We really enjoyed incorporating fresh flowers into this spring themed mini session in Mill Valley. Isn't she the cutest thing you've ever seen?

Welcome Little Miss (Madelline) Maizey! Isn't she just as cute as a button? There is nothing better than a just days old little girl, all curled up and sleepy.

This little pumpkin did such a great job posing and looking cute this morning.  I can't wait to go through the rest of the images from our session!

Welcome Issac


I had the pleasure and honor of being invited to this family's cabin in beautiful Monte Rio (my absolute favorite spot on the Russian River). The occasion: to celebrate their adoption of a very cute baby boy named Issac.

I came to photograph Issac on the day he turned 1 month.  Even though too much time had passed since his birth for the the typical sleepy-all-curled-up newborn session, we still got some great shots!

VSSA Photo Booth


So, I tried my very first attempt at a photo booth setup at the VSSA Ball last night. I still have a lot to learn and figure out (to use a lighter colored backdrop and a different lighting position, just to name a few). It went well overall, though.
I had a blast photographing this guy. It goes to show that you are never too old to break it down and let loose!

Here Comes The Sun-The Williams Family 2013-07-142013-07-14

Living in sunny Mill Valley has been quite a big change from the summer fog in San Francisco and Pacifica. I could definitely get used to these warmer, sunnier days....our new office and home studio is surrounded by chirping birds and towering redwood trees.

Here is just a sample of one of the summer sessions that we did at our new location.We had to reschedule our first session with this sweet family,  originally scheduled for Baker Beach. We decided to do the re-shoot at our location in Mill Valley and I am so glad we did.

 Anyone living in the SF Bay area knows that June and July can be the coldest, foggiest months on the bay. These warmer, sunnier sessions are producing beautiful results; the lighting was great, everyone was comfortable and feeling free because it was warm. This little smiley guy was such a sweet dude to work with, just look at those big brown eyes and that full head of hair!

Sneak Peak! of the Roberts Family-Atherton, CA

I just love warm, sunny summer outdoor sessions. These kiddos, with their firey red hair and sweet smiles, paired with their mama's savvy wardrobe selections make this family session too cute not to share.

Resplendent Photography turns 5!


Wow. I can't believe it has been 5 years already since I started Resplendent Photography.


We certainly have come a long way.

Before I started photographing professionally, and part of the time while I was attending art school, I was a nanny (for over 7 years:) and practiced taking photos of the kids that I nannied for.  This is a sweet shot of the last two boys who I was a nanny for: Daly and his little brother Benjamin.


I want to thank each and every client who has believed in and supported my venture as a professional photographer. You are the reason Resplendent Photography is as successful as it is today.

To thank you even further, I am offering 20% off all print orders to all clients who place orders now through June 15th.
