Greetings and welcome to my hand-spun blog+site. My photography journey has been incredible! It began with fun, then grew into passion, then I discovered profound love for it and there was no looking back. Please look around, the pictures here are the reflections of how I see the world. Enjoy exploring it.

Lili’s first birthday

It’s crazy how time flies! It was only little over a year ago when I met Katarina, Joe and Nicolas on a dusty shoe walk for our new home. A couple months later we moved into the brand new neighborhood in town. Nine days later Joe, Kat and Nicolas moved in as our immediate neighbor. We got to know the family better and became really good friends. During that time Katarina was expecting her second child. She asked if I would shoot her maternity session. So, I did! And that was just the beginning!

Her beautiful baby girl was born a month later. They named her Lili Ana. We went to see her at the hospital, I was thrilled to hold her in my arms for the first time! Four days later, I went to visit her again, this time I took my camera for fun and took a couple shots of the newborn. That picture is now hanging as a beautiful canvas art on their wall. Then came Christmas, followed by Lili’s Baptism. I had the honor to document both the events for her. Two weeks ago little Lili turned ONE. And guess who was their to capture her celebration? You got it! They had a party over the weekend, but I was out to SF shooting another session. But I was there on her real birthday to make sure that her cake-eating-experience didn”t go undocumented.

I really can’t believe that Lili is a year a old already! I just saw her yesterday and she was walking all over the place. I don’t know how she can get any cuter, but she is becoming even more adorable day by day. I mentioned it earlier and I have to mention it again, I love this little girl! It’s been amazing to capture the big moments for her first year, I’m blessed to have her around.

Off to the real deal now, enjoy a few images from Lili’s first birthday.

She got a gift, but it seemed like she was more into the gift receipt

She wears a tutu and walks side by side with mommy…
