Scouting with Stan - finding great photography locations in the East Bay

This is Stan. He's my amazing and oh-so-sweet 7 1/2 year old fella. His mom hails from Mexico, while his dad is a European mutt. He loves to travel to exotic far off lands, but mostly sticks to local cultural events. He helps me with some of my work, including location scouting for photography sessions - his fave! I'll be sharing our scouting work together in a series called "scouting with Stan." Stan's great at helping me find some hidden gems throughout the San Francisco area. This location in the Oakland/Berkeley hills has magical golden hour lighting and wildflowers to die for.

Hayward Maternity Photography Session - with some bohemian flair

I had so much fun with this beautiful couple, creating a touching and serene maternity session in the San Francisco bay area. Mom had an idea to go bohemian with the session and I ran with it. We put our minds together and the styling was just right, to boot.
