NINA MOLAYEM NATTIV // MATERNITY // SAN FRANCISCO

Couple of weeks ago, Nina and Roy asked me to document their life at home for their maternity session. It was a thrill to shoot this awesome couple while they cooked and hung out. They’re expecting twins! This has got to be one of the sweetest sessions I have ever shot.

Congratulations Nina and Roy. Best wishes to you and your soon to be new bundles of joy!

PRISCILLA + WEI-JIE // ENGAGED // SOUTH PASADENA

laughs and giggles define this session. Priscilla and Wei-Jie came all the way from singapore to hang out for an evening with me. we shot all around south pasadena and at arroyo seco park. Wei-Jie actually biked across the US a few years back and i love how they incorporated a vintage bike into their engagement session. as i got to know these two, i found out Priscilla went to middle school with a good friend of mine. the phrase “this is a small world” really is true. i’m super excited for these two to get married in bali next year.

congratulations guys!
