Mount Tamalpais State Park Engagements | Eunice & CY

Mount Tamalpais State Park Engagement

My first time photographing around Mount Tamalpais State Park was amazing. I can’t thank Eunice and CY enough for inviting me out to experience more gems around the bay area. Being secluded on a mountaintop surrounded by vast hillside and damp mossy woods while still spotting downtown San Francisco and ocean views was an experience.

What makes these engagements truly beautiful though are Eunice and CY and the energy they brought with them. Going into the session they had a good idea of what they wanted which we communicated beforehand so we could simply show up, experience our environment, and create. We spotted deer, embraced a few silly moments here and there, and photographed well into sunset when fog rose and rain fell. They allowed themselves to feel vulnerable and interact with little guidance, while also taking my direction for any and all ideas. I can’t thank them enough for the energy and trust they brought to these engagements.

Special thanks to Eunice and CY for having me out! San Francisco is one of my favorite cities to visit and I love every opportunity to visit. Check out my travel dates and reach out if you’re in the bay area.

The Baker family in their Oakland, California homefamily

Over the course of a year my dear friends experienced marriage along with the arrival of their little one. They’ve had me out to their home in Oakland to document every step of the way and honestly it’s been such an amazing experience of growth for me. Being around their family has influenced me to try living in the moment, loving unconditionally and to cherish every single moment with my loved ones more than I have. Their love was wildly strong when they were married a year ago and I honestly didn’t think it could get any better before Olivia arrived. They are completely rocking this crazy life together and are the luckiest parents in the world. So here’s a little glimpse of how they are together on a daily basis. We started in their home like last time and eventually wandered into San Francisco where we found some steep streets and lush gardens.
