Family photography at the Rose Garden in San Jose, whether it’s a full or a mini family session, always yields stunning results. Brick and mortar, iron-wrought gates, and of course roses exploding with colors provide a beautiful backdrop for capturing families and children anytime of the year but especially in the fall.

A few months ago, I collaborated with a French fashion designer on vacation in California, as she and her family explored the wine country in Sonoma, Napa, and even Cupertino. In fact, they discovered their favorite winery in the western foothills of Cupertino, where they found the very best wine that California has to offer at Picchetti Winery. Not far from Picchetti, we met at McClellan Ranch, a rural backwater of Cupertino, and played with different poses and outdoor photography styles, ranging from headshots to environmental portraits, from color to black and white. It also gave me an opportunity to explore different editing techniques and styles. Our outing was a great reminder that collaboration is one of the most effective methods for breaking out of a creative rut and trying something new. Thank you, Hélène Marquet!

Two aspects of photography are incredibly gratifying: photographing a former colleague I’ve always admired AND seeing your work show up beautifully in editorial. Happy, happy, indeed. Thank you Edith Bendermacher for our collaboration. I especially enjoyed the amazing new office space at NetApp and chasing fantastic light on Santana Row!

Fresh out of grad school, I landed my first job at an advertising and marketing agency in Palo Alto. It’s one of the best experiences I’ve ever had.
Agency life leaves a mark. It changes the way you think, the way you plan and execute, and the way you interact with people.
A few weeks ago, I photographed team members at Traction, an SF-based marketing agency and consultancy. It was like going home again. I loved every aspect of it: the vitality, the banter, and the ideas born of minds in flight. It just felt so familiar.
Nostalgia aside, below are some black and white headshots we captured. I hope you like them.
When you have a second, visit Traction at www.tractionco.com. You may experience a homecoming, too.

Outdoor family photography in the Bay Area never ceases to amaze me. The combination of natural elements is endless: mountains, creeks, oaks, bays, needle grass, goldenrod, and mottled light. It’s a family photographer’s paradise. Please click to view full size images. I hope you enjoy.
