With cameras on smartphones improving every day, it’s easier than ever to capture beautiful moments of friends, family, pets, and milestones. Not only can they be of amazing quality, but they can also be convenient. So with this easy access to great cameras, why hire a professional photographer? What is the value?

Professional photographers have state-of-the-art equipment, know the best staging techniques, can edit your images, and most importantly, help make sure everyone is in the photo! Here are some moments in life when we might think a smartphone camera would do, but perhaps we should think again.

 

Selling Your Home

The right photos hold the key to a home that sells for the right priceand at the right time. Many home buyers are doing more of their house-hunting online these days, which means professionally taken photos and 360 tours could make all the difference. If you want to really turn heads, hire eyeCatchLight Photography to photograph your home and create a virtual tour.

 

         Every home has a unique story and eyeCatchLight tells each of them through high end visual marketing. We understand luxury real estate in the San Francisco Bay Area and beyond.<br/> <br/> One of the vSanta Cruz Real Estate PhotographyEvery home has a unique story and eyeCatchLight tells each of them through high end visual marketing. We understand luxury real estate in the San Francisco Bay Area and beyond.

One of the vital pieces to the groundbreaking marketing strategy of realtors is our 360 Real Estate Virtual Tours. Most real estate clients don’t have the luxury of touring a home in person if they are moving from out of state, so it’s important to provide an interactive experience for the potential buyer that made them feel as if they were actually touring the house in person; something above and beyond Real Estate Photography.

We offer the 360 Virtual Tours for their homes in Mountain View, Los Altos, San Francisco, Palo Alto, Santa Cruz, San Jose, Menlo Park, Redwood City, San Bruno, San Carlos, Saratoga, Monte Sereno, Scotts Valley, Monterey, Pescadero, Sunnyvale, Santa Clara, Half Moon Bay, Pacifica, Los Gatos, South San Francisco, Campbell , Woodside, Capitola, Aptos, Soquel, and more.

The realtor even has the ability to record a guided video tour using the 360 Tour and can use the tool to virtually meet over video with interested parties.


 

Wedding
Your wedding day will fly by in a flash—many couples say they don’t even get time to eat. Having a professional there to document the moments, big and small, will help you experience your day in more depth. Things you missed, exchanges between friends, and a time when you looked your absolute best—these are all things you can remember for the rest of your life in high-quality detail thanks to a professional wedding photographer.

Before and After

Professionally-taken before and after photos can more adequately convey a major transformation, like surgery, weight loss, or a home remodel. Hiring a professional to track your health progress can be a big motivator for many people, which is why a medical photographer can be a good call—they really bring to light even the smallest details. When it comes to showcasing home improvements, professional real estate photos can engage sellers more deeply when you are ready to put your home on the market.

 

Professional Headshot

Whether you are a CEO or just starting out in your career, a professional headshot for LinkedIn, your personal website, and other online platforms is a very beneficial career boost. Putting your best, professional face forward is the first impression potential employers and clients get from you. This is especially helpful for people who want to advance in leadership roles or start consulting on their own. 

Our Headshot & Professional Branding Sessions can be created on location!

We have 10 years of experience in the field and give clients care and attention in our headshot experience to achieve their desired personal branding look with available make up and hair services, digital make up, posing, and more.

These are great for individual professionals and their unique rising entrepreneur marketing goals - be it book covers, press releases, or branding brochures!

As an artistic business, we also love to portray artists, writers, and musicians for their book covers, album covers, websites, and more! We love to see you thrive in the creative professions!

Professional headshots and group portraits for larger corporate projects where a clean, uniform look is desired over a larger team membership are one of our signature skills. Seeing your website, billboard, advertisements, magazine editorials, and more, with these icons of your successful business truly makes us happy!

 

Pregnancy and New Baby

Documenting one of the most unique times in your life—your pregnancy and the birth of a new baby—can help you relive some of the precious, once-in-a-lifetime memories. Choosing a professional to take these photos will give you confidence that the images will be done right. In several years’ time, your children will appreciate how high-quality professional images last so much longer. They can share this special moment with their children and even grandchildren.

 

        
 

 

Family

There will be many reasons to celebrate your family over the years and plenty of opportunities to document special times and moments. That’s why family photos of everyday life can also be really special, too. Professional images of you and your family going about your daily routine— who you are together in those everyday moments— show a side of familial love that can get eclipsed during boisterous and chaotic holidays. 

While there are times when a smartphone camera will do, as you can see there are plenty of good reasons to go with a pro. When the moments matter, make it count by hiring a professional to make memories last. You might even be surprised at how beautiful and authentic images can be when taken by an objective observer.

We created it at Harley Farms in Pescadero, where he had a great time playing with his new friends the goats! This wooden wall art piece is part of this year's new collection and comes with an invisible mount in the back equipped with a built in level for easy mounting. All of my wall art comes with a certificate of authenticity! I'm so happy Trevor will have heirloom memories to look back on when he grows up - these are made to last and hopefully create joy for the family for years to come.

1. For a slimmer look, form fitting is definitely best! Look for figure-hugging clothes. Avoid blousy or boxy tops as they will make you look bigger on camera.

2. Think textures. Textures like lace, ruffles, and ruching add visual interest without overwhelming. Look for textured tops in solid colors. Avoid patterns as they may detract from your face.

3. Bring a variety of colors-- something light (ivory, white, pastel), something dark (black, charcoal gray, navy), something with a pop of color (something that brings out your eyes is best.)

4. Look for layers. Add a form-fitting jacket or slim fit knit cardigan to cover and slim arms.

5. Consider longer sleeves. 3/4 length and long sleeves are universally flattering and slimming. Sleeveless is great on toned arms or pair with layers (see above) to slim arms. Avoid cap sleeves.

6. Bring coordinating bottoms. Bring pants or skirts that match your favorite tops; that way if your knee or hip is in the frame, you'll be stylishly covered. 

7. Look for flattering necklines. Scoop, cowl neck, or v-neck are great options. Avoid high neck tops as they may make your neck look cut off in pictures.

8. Select jewelry that speaks to your style. Subtle? or bold? You choose.

9. Come with clean, manicured nails. Hands come into the frame a lot with portraits. Neutral colors, simple buff, or French manicure are recommended.

10. Bring appropriate undergarments. For example, strapless bras so your straps don't show, seamless panties and shapewear in appropriate colors.

1. For a slimmer look, opt for slim-fit shirts and jackets.

2. Keep patterns to a minimum. Print ties and pin stripes are ok.

3. Look for layers. Add a form-fitting jacket or V-neck sweater to vary your look.

4. Bring a variety of colors. Something light. Something dark. A pop of color to bring out your eyes.

5. Long sleeves are always preferred over short sleeves for a clean, polished look. Prefer casual? Rolled sleeves do the trick!

6. A collared shirt and suit is a must for stylish professionals.

7. Bring coordinating bottoms. Many shots are 3/4 in length.

8. Bring coordinating shoes and socks. Footwear may come into frame with seated poses.

9. Prepare your favorite accessories. Watches, cufflinks, glasses, and pocket squares should be clean and presentable.

10. Come with clean, manicured nails. Hands come into frame a lot, so make sure yours are camera ready.

Want more than the stiff studio headshot? | Santa Cruz & Bay Area Branding Photography https://www.eyecatchlight.com/blog/2020/12/want-more-than-the-stiff-studio-headshot-santa-cruz-bay-area-branding-photography You wouldn't believe how many calls I get that start with a request for "not the typical daunting, intimidating, yet dreary formal headshot". Clients usually continue on with something like "we should probably do one of those though, you know, so I have it for when I need it". 

What if I told you that you can have a stunning headshot that is not of the lackluster, yet terrifying kind? I am doing my very best to create a different, fun-filled, and personalized experience for you. Here are some of the ingredients along with Riya's story, who came for her branding portraits. She is starting a new Zumba business and a new marriage officiating venture, all in the same year! Congrats Riya!!

Fresh branding images for your small business in the Monterey Bay - Aptos Headshot PhotographerFresh branding images for your small business in the Monterey Bay - Aptos Headshot PhotographerA couple of weeks ago Riya @riyasuising got in touch because she's working on her brand new Zumba venture! I've been to one of her online classes, she's amazing! She had planned out an entire class of cool songs with choreography, and I'm pretty certain she didn't make any mistakes! Unlike me! This class definitely brightened my day!! I hope you can try one out at riya.zumba.com! . Riya then asked if we could create some branding portraits for her. We did the session in Riya's backyard, it's so beautiful there! We had @michaela_juutstylist over for her hair and makeup, it was so great! This is one of the images Riya chose. There are several more - I hope to show them soon! Doesn't she look cool? ‍♀️

Complementary hair and makeup services

This year I have introduced the amazing work of Michele Falk to our studio. She has been a really successful hair artist at the Juut salon in Downtown Palo Alto for about 20 years or so!! She has been my own hair stylist for about 8 of those years. She brings makeup, but also lets you bring your own, and really emphasizes a natural look so you feel at your best instead of unnaturally styled.

Moreover, I have invested in a very cool environmentally friendly power station that can run Michele's hair dryer! This means that you can get your hair done right on a cliff. Sound good anyone? Yes? Yes!!!

In Riya's case we had Michele do a beautiful blow dry followed by some slight waves. It looked fantastic, let me tell you! Riya had Michele use mostly her personal makeup and looked stunning!

Wardrobe and styling consultation

When we begin our journey together, we will meet for a consultation. This is when I show you all the art that you can choose from, but more importantly, it is also when I can help you decide what will look best in your photos. Hint: solid colors are usually a good choice. If you have more than one person in your session, similar tones such as blue tones work well together. Plaid patterns, stripes, and similar look very nice in a nature setting, and depending on the particular garment also in the studio. I'd probably advise against busy prints, in particular flower prints, as they tend to compete with the background. With any of these recommendations the most important thing though is that you feel comfortable in your clothes. This will really influence how you feel and look in your photos!

In Riya's case we settled on a formal black top combined with a black skirt for her formal officiant photo. We also chose her Zumba outfits and settled on a teal-black top with black tights! She looked so cool!!

A relaxed atmosphere to calm potential discomfort

Several of my clients have told me recently that they were super worried about having their photo taken. Jennifer, an awesome real estate interior designer who had a lot of camera anxiety, was so relieved that she had her branding photos taken for the first time in so many years that she sent her mom a piece of wall art and her boyfriend an entire album, even though this was a branding session! Ali came for a simple headshot and told me that she was relieved and how it felt a lot easier than she had imagined. Andrea decided to take me on a hike to help with the anxiety. Fret not, the trails are my specialty as an ultrarunner - we formed such a beautiful relationship on that hike. 

In summary, I'll do anything to make you feel at ease. This could simply be to take photos outside when we sense discomfort, or some reassurance that everything will look great. Or it could be a whole personalized session like in Andrea's case, where we take the time to go out of our ways to create that relaxed environment.

In Riya's case, the to her most comfortable spot was her backyard! It was stunning too! I loved it there. I think we got some nicely relaxed images of her.

Last but not least: a creative, colorful, and INCLUSIVE photographer

I think my work has a style that is known for different things: for one, I like to create colorful, interesting branding photos. I also like to incorporate the majestic power of nature wherever I can. I hate to be fenced in as a person, so I love seeking out fun and new ideas that are outside the box. If you're a professional who likes to stand out among the crowd, having a "different" and appealing image set to use can be a game changer. Imagine your cool looking, adventurous headshot on your book cover! Or a billboard! The newspaper! People will see you and notice you without even needing to add a word of text. This is what I am here for.

As a lady that has emerged from a rubble of abuse and bullying, I also strive very much to be inclusive. The LGBTQ community is particularly important to me, and I want you to know that you are safe in my studio.

In Riya's case I enjoyed incorporating some of the beautiful landscaping in her backyard. We also photographed her in her colorful Zumba outfit. Below are also the photos of Andrea on our hike, and of Jennifer in her element on a tree, with flowers in her hands.

Creative Headshots and branding images for your small business - Soquel Branding PhotographerCreative Headshots and branding images for your small business - Soquel Branding PhotographerThere comes a time in the life of a photographer that feels like a whole new world is opening up to give way to a new way of capturing who people truly are. . This special session with Jennifer a little over a week ago was a true inspiration for me. It meant so much. Like myself, Jennifer has gone through a lot in life. For her it meant among other things that she has had a very hard time having her portraits taken. Of the 500 images her last photographer sent her, she only liked three. . I really wanted her to see her beautiful self and put my best effort forward to make this as special as possible for her. We got @michaela_juutstylist to help with hair and makeup, exactly the way that felt natural to Jennifer, and conquered difficult moments in front of the camera with grace and flow and, above all, a lot of nature. . Today Jennifer returned to view and select her portraits. She warned me that she'd only like a handful of photos if any. That she'd have a super hard time. . Instead, while we looked through them, Jennifer chose "yes" more and more often, which then turned into "super yes" for 26 photos. Of all the photos she chose ~80%, and even ordered an album and a nice piece of wooden wall art. . This meant the world to me. First, I share many of the struggles Jennifer went through, and it feels powerful to part ways with a similar past. . But more importantly, I did not realize that I might not fully believe in myself either. I didn't think that I could create art that truly makes someone happy. When photographer colleagues talk about creating that connection that results in images that come from the soul, I think to myself, deep inside, that I'm not the type that can create that sort of emotion in another. . And yet, in some way just that happened. All you have to do is be yourself, and others will peacefully start to find themselves. It's really pretty simple: open your heart to others, and most things will fall into place.

We also designed a beautiful album and a metal wall art gallery for both of them with these beautiful portraits. Thank you for letting me portray your big day! ❤️

The cute Christmas "love train" was very appropriate for their story - shown in the page below that we created for their elopement album!!

After these intimate sunrise portraits we went to Sutro Heights for their unique ceremony with an amazing view of Ocean Beach and the vast horizon full of the magic the future was holding for both of them.

 💝 

Chikara is known in our community as an amazing athlete! Many people wonder about his dietary approach to performing so well. His secret? Donuts! Diann is an amazing culinary artist and loves to bake all kinds of wonderful treats for her clients! What would be better for them than to exchange donut rings instead of their jewelry counterparts. This made for a really joyful and funny ceremony - truly something I had never photographed before!! The wedding album page below shows some of the fun and memories!!

After the ceremony we took some more time to create beautiful wedding portraits of the two in Sutro park, most importantly, incorporating their personal touch to the day: running shoes, donuts, and a lot of love.

Are you uncomfortable with photography? | Santa Cruz Newborn, Family, Branding Photographer https://www.eyecatchlight.com/blog/2020/11/are-you-uncomfortable-with-photography-santa-cruz-newborn-family-branding-photographer There comes a time in the life of a photographer that feels like a whole new world is opening up to give way to a new way of capturing who people truly are.

Jennifer's feedback on Google and Yelp:

I recently decided it was time to rebrand my business, and with that meant new photos. I typically can't handle family photos, or even casual pictures with my friends. My anxiety was at an all time high with my recent BDD relapse and stresses in life. But, I thought to myself, if I was working with a counselor, what would they suggest I do? They would challenge me to take steps towards facing my fears. I decided it was time to schedule a photo session with my new friend Simone at Eye Catch Light Photography. I warned her about my extreme photo anxiety (I left out the real details until photo day). I typically see myself as extremely deformed and overweight. As I opened up to her about what was really causing my anxiety, she did not judge me. She did not squirm or get uncomfortable. She provided a safe space for me to take these small steps towards tackling this debilitating monster that lives inside of my head. Simone talked me through the tough moments, held space as I cried, and patiently waited while I had to take (many) breaks to calm down. Her kind beautiful soul, and 11 years of photography experience (trust me- she had to pull out all of her knowledge to get me through this) created a therapeutic photography session for me. This is just one of many steps I have vowed to take for myself, and I am grateful that such a wonderful person was there to hold a safe space as I begin to work through it. I can not express enough gratitude for Simone being there for me.

Today Jennifer returned to view and select her portraits. She warned me that she'd only like a handful of photos if any. That she'd have a super hard time.

Instead, while we looked through them, Jennifer chose "yes" more and more often, which then turned into "super yes" for 26 photos. Of all the photos she chose ~80%, and even ordered an album and a nice piece of wooden wall art.

This meant the world to me. First, I share many of the struggles Jennifer went through, and it feels powerful to part ways with a similar past.

But more importantly, I did not realize that I might not fully believe in myself either. I didn't think that I could create art that truly makes someone happy. When photographer colleagues talk about creating that connection that results in images that come from the soul, I think to myself, deep inside, that I'm not the type that can create that sort of emotion in another.

And yet, in some way just that happened. All you have to do is be yourself, and others will peacefully start to find themselves. It's really pretty simple: open your heart to others, and most things will fall into place. Jennifer went on to purchase a beautiful album for her partner (see video above), as well as a piece of metal wall art for her mom. She hadn't given either any photos of herself in decades.

How to prepare for a newborn portrait session | Santa Cruz Newborn and Maternity Photography https://www.eyecatchlight.com/blog/2020/8/how-to-prepare-for-a-newborn-portrait-session Today I'd like to tell you what you need to do in order to get the gorgeous photos of your newborn baby and its wonderful story at exploring life that you see online and that you've dreamed of! Newborn photography sessions happen between 5 and 14 days after birth, because that is when your baby sleeps the most! This happy slumber is what we need to create the cute poses in buckets, baskets, wooden log beds, and other places. I can't wait to have you in my studio!

This preparation guide will help your session go more smoothly. If you’re unable to follow any of the guidelines, please don’t worry! I’ll do whatever it takes to ensure that I’m able to capture those timeless images you’re envisioning. If that means patiently rocking your little one for 30 minutes or taking several feeding or cuddling breaks, that’s ok!

Envision Your Newborn Photography On Your Walls - Santa Cruz Newborn PhotographerEnvision Your Newborn Photography On Your Walls - Santa Cruz Newborn PhotographerWe have unique software that allows us to demonstrate how the images from your portrait session will look on your very own walls. We can scale the designs to an accurate size, create collages, add framing, and more! We can truly create the perfect fit for your home so that you can feel confident in your selections. There’s just one easy thing you have to do: Photograph your walls and send us the images prior to your ordering appointment.Mountain View, Los Altos, San Francisco, Palo Alto, Santa Cruz, San Jose, Menlo Park, Redwood City, San Bruno, San Carlos, Saratoga, Monte Sereno, Scotts Valley, Monterey, Pescadero, Sunnyvale, Santa Clara, Half Moon Bay, Pacifica, Los Gatos, South San Francisco, Campbell Headshot Photographer.

Before the session

  • Please give your baby a bath the day prior to the session.
  • If you are breast-feeding, try to avoid eating anything spicy or gas inducing (i.e. pizza, spicy sauces, garlic, broccoli, thai/indian food, high fat etc.) that might upset baby’s tummy for 24 hours preceding your scheduled session. It’s best to stick to a relatively bland diet the 24 hours before your session.
  • ***DO NOT CIRCUMCISE your baby boy right before your session. I might be wrapping him tightly and moving him between different poses which can be painful with a raw circumcision. 

Newborn Baby Girl In Flower Basket - Mountain View Newborn PhotographerNewborn Baby Girl In Flower Basket - Mountain View Newborn PhotographerTonight I got to meet little Harley Rose again! She has grown so much since we took her portraits! Her mum Desiree and grandparents Heather and Dean decided on an album for her and a beautiful acrylic wall art piece of the portrait below! I can't wait to deliver their custom art for them to enjoy for many years to come! Harley Rose also received her little pink onesie rewarding her for having crushed her newborn session - but more on that later!

Day of the session

  • Please do your best to keep your baby AWAKE for 2 hours before your session. This is VERY important. I know this is hard, so all I ask is that you try your best. Some tricks to keep your baby awake are giving the baby a bath, getting baby naked, tickling baby’s feet, and lightly wetting baby’s feet. We will get amazing images if your baby sleeps through the session.
  • If possible, please have a bottle of formula or breast milk ready for the session, along with a pacifier should we need it. This is especially important with twins and maintaining the flow of the session. I understand that many mothers are trying to avoid a pacifier during this critical time of learning to breastfeed. But I hope you’ll consider that pacifiers are so useful in soothing fussy babies back to sleep during the 3 hours we’re together. If you are not comfortable with the use of a pacifier, please let me know. We are absolutely on board with whatever you choose!
  • You will be feeding your baby a FULL feeding 15-30 minutes before our session, so please schedule your baby’s day accordingly.
  • Dress baby in loose fitting clothes to avoid any lines on skin. A onesie that opens in the front is best, as this avoids having to lift anything tight over baby’s head.

Envision Your Portraits On Your Very Own WallsEnvision Your Portraits On Your Very Own WallsWe have unique software that allows us to demonstrate how the images from your portrait session will look on your very own walls. We can scale the designs to an accurate size, create collages, add framing, and more! We can truly create the perfect fit for your home so that you can feel confident in your selections. There’s just one easy thing you have to do: Photograph your walls and send us the images prior to your ordering appointment.Mountain View, Los Altos, San Francisco, Palo Alto, Santa Cruz, San Jose, Menlo Park, Redwood City, San Bruno, San Carlos, Saratoga, Monte Sereno, Scotts Valley, Monterey, Pescadero, Sunnyvale, Santa Clara, Half Moon Bay, Pacifica, Los Gatos, South San Francisco, Campbell Headshot Photographer.

During the session

  • Please keep your space warm during the session so that your baby remains comfortable. It is even better to have a small space heater to keep your little one warm. Please dress in layers so that you can remain comfortable during the session.
  • Newborn sessions generally take 2-3 hours. If a toddler is involved, a session may take up to 4 hours.
  • I recommend having no more than yourself, your spouse/partner, children and one guest if necessary. Too many extra people in the room make for somewhat challenging creative conditions and can be distracting both for the baby and the portrait flow.

Extended family portraits in Emeryville | San Francisco Bay Area Family Photographer https://www.eyecatchlight.com/blog/2020/7/extended-family-portraits-in-emeryville-san-francisco-bay-area-family-photographer Verena's extended family portrait session will always have a special place in my heart. It was the first session I did after photography was allowed again with the coronavirus. Verena is originally Austrian (like me!!) and her parents had been in town for months since the birth of little Sandor, unable to return. Because of the coronavirus they were unable to take newborn portraits, but we worked on a family and baby session instead!

They weren't sure if they'd ever be able to come again and unite as a family, so we created these very meaningful memories out in Emeryville. These included two albums for both Verena and her parents, as well as three pieces of acrylic wall art. This meant so much to me. ❤️ Today Verena received her products! Right now I mail products with UPS, and viewing/ordering appointments are held over Zoom to make everything as safe as possible for everyone involved.

This listing was a beautiful chic farmhouse style property, and I had so much fun creating these photos as I loved the decor so much. Believe it or not, there were even goats on the property! The owners are moving to Placerville, where their animals have more space!

The MLS property listing is already online thanks to the wonderful work of my business partner, Judy Litteer at Better Homes and Gardens Realtors.

I had the honor to create both the still photographs and the 360 virtual tour, along with an additional walkthrough virtual video tour!

Here are some of the photos - click here for the full gallery of this beautiful real estate sale.

The virtual tour can be seen below. I love making these! As an engineer the technical aspect and processing of these panoramas really speaks to me!

 



Every home has a unique story and eyeCatchLight tells each of them through high end visual marketing. We understand luxury real estate in the San Francisco Bay Area and beyond.

One of the vital pieces to the groundbreaking marketing strategy of realtors is our 360 Real Estate Virtual Tours. Most real estate clients don't have the luxury of touring a home in person if they are moving from out of state, so it's important to provide an interactive experience for the potential buyer that made them feel as if they were actually touring the house in person; something above and beyond Real Estate Photography. .
We offer the 360 Virtual Tours for their homes in Mountain View, San Jose, Los Altos, Los Altos Hills, Palo Alto, Menlo Park, San Francisco, Santa Cruz, Half Moon Bay, Woodside, Capitola, Aptos, Soquel, and more.


The realtor even has the ability to record a guided video tour using the 360 Tour and can use the tool to virtually meet over video with interested parties.

Big City Moms Baby Shower | eyeCatchLight Bay Area Maternity and Newborn Photographer https://www.eyecatchlight.com/blog/2018/3/big-city-moms-baby-shower-eyecatchlight-bay-area-maternity-and-newborn-photographer It's been a little quiet on the blog - my sincere apologies!

 

But don't fret - behind the scenes a lot has been going on. For one, last month I was a Bronze Sponsor for the Big City Moms Baby Shower San Francisco! I also served as an event photographer besides manning our booth at the event, so that was definitely a fun-filled day!

 

My biggest thanks goes to Verity from Boss Bikkie cookies who was a sponsor and amazing booth-president while I was around portraying the event! Thank you Verity!

 

We reached out to many amazing mums-to-be and extended a $200 credit coupon for use with a maternity or newborn session (or both)! We prepared little gift and goodie bags with cookies, coupons, cards, and more!

 

We're so overwhelmed by the positive response - I am still calling many of the attendees to activate their offer, and it's been great to get such beautiful feedback from the community on my photography.

 

Thank you so much Big City Moms and all the attendees - YOU - for making this event possible! See a few photos below!

Little Alexia Flower Girl | Palo Alto Baby Photographer https://www.eyecatchlight.com/blog/2017/6/little-alexia-flower-girl-palo-alto-baby-photographer It's been a little while that little Alexia posed in front of my camera for her very first professionally created portraits! And what a natural she was at just that - smiles all the way!

§

Her parents had chosen the incredible Elizabeth F Gamble Garden in Palo Alto for the portraits of their beautiful daughter. And so we went, a team of caring parents and the photographer, carefully placing little Alexia on a dreamy little cushion in midst a sea of flowers. 

Redwood City Baby Child PhotographyRedwood City Baby Child PhotographyLittle Alexia in a bed of flowers at her six month baby photography session at the Elizabeth F Gamble Garden in Palo Alto.

Together we created a story of life and love and beauty for Alexia's new family. And what an experience - six month old Alexia wasn't like any other - she couldn't stop laughing! I think she's a true lover of life, happily giggling to the "vaca loca" cartoon her beautiful mommy put on to entertain her! It made me realize so many things that we as adults often forget - being in the moment! To us adults, what stood out was that the day was overcast and that we missed the presence of the sun. Not to Alexia - she loved the flowers and laughed and smiled and wiggled her little hands, no matter the day or weather or other perceived obstacles toward happiness!

§

More importantly though, she didn't just smile for herself - she passed her joy on to all of us and made us spend a morning of sunshine and laughter when actually there was no sun in the sky. See for yourself in the cute little video below how much happiness she created for all of us!

I believe this is what makes life so special - not the smiles you create for yourself. Happiness and gratification does not come from enjoying and savoring beauty and joy alone - it comes from sharing it with others. Little Alexia is aware of this beautiful foundation of life so early on in life. When we adults sometimes forget these things, we can look at our little ones and newcomers for wisdom and skills of love and life - as it is all right there, within the depths of a tiny little heart but a vast and beautiful soul of a beautiful child. <3

The vast bonds of nature and humanity... | San Francisco Bay Area Wedding Photography https://www.eyecatchlight.com/blog/2017/4/beach-bridal-wedding On of my recent projects involved a very special wedding project. We took beautiful portraits of Brittany, our lovely bride, on majestic Ocean Beach in San Francisco. This was a special place - a place where the wild waves mingled with her hair, and where the wind blew her dreams all the way to her from out on the horizon. And while we thought we were only the team of stylists and photographers, our dreams were drawn and blown across the sky along with hers, in an amazingly stunning red tinted scene of Californian sunset.

§

What speaks to me most about photography is the theme of love - in the form of a vast and powerful connection with our surroundings. This connection either appears in a bond with other people or with the vast extent of nature to which my subjects are linked in invisible, yet strongly visual ways. Inevitably, each time I am also connected and drawn in - and this is precisely why my passion for this amazing form of art will never die.

§

The theme of love appeared in this astoundingly special session through the simple fact that Brittany was a bride and connected to her future and current family in such beautiful ways! But much more importantly, I felt a very powerful bond throughout our large team of stylists, make-up artists, photographers, videographers, florists, and more, a connection that slowly but steadily grew as the afternoon went on towards its grand finale of a majestic sunset. We, on that day on the beach, worked together as a community and with love and personal passion - to make Brittany look fantastic, and to capture her special moments in the very best way! See for yourself what a beautiful setting our stylists were able to create!

§

Once the sun started to set we were ready to catch Brittany's beauty and the hard work of her make-up artist and stylist on camera. She was beautifully styled in her wedding dress and with vintage flowers in her hair. The breeze blew strongly and reminded me of a beautiful wind of change and future direction that Brittany was embarking on. I particularly fell in love with her majestic large bouquet of flowers. As the sun set, Brittany seemed to gaze far, far away, into a land of dreams whose focus lay in the depths of the horizon of the vast ocean. Not without taking us along with her on her mindful journey into a future of love.

The second theme that really spoke to me in this project was the one of nature. I believe this theme can't be emphasized more strongly than in majestic locations like wide open Ocean Beach. As the sun set and the breeze cooled our faces, we were completely immersed in the scene, and Brittany slowly moved from being the main subject in our photos to be a part of the incredible landscape. This is one of my passionate elements in photography - the marriage of nature with humanity, as it was possible in the portraits below.

§

Even after such a long time, as a photographer I still learn new things about life from each session. This particular one taught me about the vast immersion of all of us as a community in nature. It seemed to me that we all had our own world of dreams that came true that day on the beach. As time went on, we connected more and more with each other and with the vast beach and the sunset. Each of us for one another and nature for each of us made a dream come true - the realization that life was a wonderful sequence of moments and of connection within a community and within a planet of beauty.

Life is a journey - a lesson taught by little Maeve... | Mountain View Newborn Photography https://www.eyecatchlight.com/blog/2017/3/maeve-life-is-a-journey In one of my recent photography sessions I witnessed a very unique arrival of new life! Little Maeve wasn't like any other - she was in a hurry to soak up the beauty of life and decided to arrive in our world a little earlier than many of her other newborn friends. She just couldn't wait!! A lover of life, and impatient in nature myself, I was already incredibly excited to meet her and to create a lasting portrayal of her arrival when I chatted with her mom before our session. But little did I know what was to come next...

§

When I finally met little Maeve in person, a surprise awaited me! So young still, but already equipped with so much wit, Maeve presented herself as a uniquely smart young girl! Believe it or not - to protect herself from her strenuous expedited journey, Maeve had decided to pack herself up in a tiny little suitcase so she'd be able to join our ranks unharmed and full of joyful smiles!

 

 

That day during our photoshoot, Maeve allowed me to photograph her in her little traveling vessel while she continued her happy journey through life. What an honour! To me, the wisdom of the scene I was capturing was unprecedented. Maeve taught me once again, and in a single instant, and with so much clarity, wrapped up peacefully in her little suitcase, that life is a journey. A vast variety of things happen to us every single day, yet, life never stops, and we never stop traveling. We travel from one day to the next, and no moment is the same as the one before. Sometimes we laugh, and sometimes we cry, sometimes we think we have everything figured out and feel full of bliss, and other times it seems like life falls through our fingers like grains of sand that we can't hold onto. But throughout all of these different times one thing always remains the same: life is a journey, a succession of little spans in time strung together in a beautiful series.

Menlo Park newborn photographer - little Maeve wrapped up wearing her favourite hat!Campbell newborn photographer - little Maeve wrapped up wearing her favourite hat!Redwood City newborn photographer - little Maeve wrapped up wearing her favourite hat!

§

I believe Maeve taught me that day with much intensity what it sometimes takes in life. Some situations are beyond our control, and all we can do is pack ourselves up warmly, brace ourselves, and head out into the world. Sometimes we have to head out even if we don't want to - knowing that life is out there and will bring joy and happiness after the strain and effort of the journey ahead. Maeve did just this - on her own, her very first journey, and after much growing and effort and fighting through it all, she found happiness and joy and sunshine waiting at her doorstep. She mastered her first exam in life, traveling to us, with flying colours and came to us unharmed, beautifully protected in her suitcase cocoon, even though she had to go through so much.

§

Some other times in life though, we need to sit back and let life unfold, like Maeve's parents did. When I met them, they were full of such wonder and love - a kind that is hard to put into words. Maeve's parents couldn't stop smiling and being grateful that Maeve was with them. They were not like any others. Throughout each of their interactions with Maeve their love shone through so very strongly, and even more so the fact that they did not take Maeve for granted and lovingly cared for her in every possible way. Being invited as the photographer to capture these emotions and bonds was the most rewarding experience for me in a long, long time. I am so thankful that life offered me this moment.

§

This is what happens to me every time I have the honour of capturing a story of humanity through my lens. I witness love and gratitude and care. I not only experience these qualities in people but get the unique opportunity to capture them and transform them into lasting memories. Nothing compares to a beautiful photography session with beautiful souls. Like little Maeve I can't wait to soak up the beauty of life in every moment! Thank you Maeve and thank you to your mom and dad for offering me such a beautiful experience. <3

Happy traveling!

The wisdom of our elders... | San Francisco Bay Area Newborn Photography https://www.eyecatchlight.com/blog/2017/2/the-wisdom-of-our-elders I am often asked what draws me towards the art of photography. My answer is very simple - it's the people. One such example is my photoshoot with little newborn Melody a few days ago.

§

Unexpectedly, upon arrival at Melody's house, not her mom or dad, but instead her grandmother opened the door and welcomed me into their very clean, beautiful, bright, warm, and spacious place. I immediately felt comfortable - although unsure why I felt such an emotion - but I would find out later why!

 

 

Throughout our photoshoot, Melody's grandmother was full of incredible wisdom and always knew just how to make her little granddaughter comfortable and peaceful. She knew when to step back and when to help.  She cuddled with little Melody, wrapped her tightly, and always had the right soothing technique at hand. She knew how to calm her and heated her little room up to very warm temperatures - and little Melody absolutely loved it and slept right through our session! A photographer's dream come true!

§

Many newborn photographers will tell the parents to sit away from their baby while they handle the dressing and posing almost entirely by themselves. I feel very differently - to me a newborn is intimately connected to its elders by beautiful strings of love. More than any grown person, a newborn is still so close to her mom's body and the care of other family members in so many ways. As the photographer I strive to capture these ties of love and need - even in those photos that only show the newborn. It does show! In the photoshoots, in which the mum or dad wish to be part of the photo, these ties emerge even more intimately and prominently.

§

The reason for me to focus on the loving bonds in my work is that I believe what we really seek out with photography and the related memories is not a specific pose or headband our little one was wearing a few days after birth - more often than not instead we would like to remember what emotions we felt back then, and what emotions our little newborn felt. We long to remember the love and tales of new life - and capturing them often resonates so very strongly with us through visual storytelling.

§

In almost every photo session, it is inevitable to feel my own emotions - I love working with people and that with all my heart! First of all, the awe of seeing new life grow and thrive is a unique experience for me each time I work with a newborn. But beyond the feeling of witnessing a wonderful moment this particular session had me fully immersed in yet another story of life - the one of an incredibly caring and wise grandmother. Even though I was the photographer, obviously one of the key persons in the photo session, I couldn't help but halt and watch the love and wisdom that Melody's grandmother brought into the moment and into the photo session - and to life in general! 

§

My own childhood was one that was strongly shaped by my grandmother's love. I spent a majority of my time with her, and she was an example for me in ways that I couldn't grasp until I grew old enough to start being an example to younger individuals myself. The love of my grandmother was the one of a fierce and strong woman who did not accept when something or someone was trying to bring her down. She had overcome incredible obstacles in life, yet she had never even once given up. As a true Austrian mountain die-hard, she'd say things like "The bad weeds never die, just like me!" - and without realizing it early on, she was the reason why I was never afraid to succeed as a woman - or a human, in general. Because she did succeed, always, without the blink of an eye. But more importantly, at the right moments, my grandmother knew how to complement the strong and fierce work and life ethic with her capacity to send love and comfort to me and the world around her. She knew how to cook my favourite foods, she dried my shoes on the heater in the basement when I had played in the snow for hours, and she knew how to hold me when the tears were rolling after I had done one of my little acts of mischief again, like running in circles around our house guests who were trying to relax in the sun. She knew how to be fiercely loving.

§

Melody's grandmother reminded me of that female strength and wisdom - the intuitive knowledge of when to be strong and when to send out love and warmth, and how to integrate these complementing qualities into a personality of integrity. She was calm and peaceful but exuded an incredible amount of longstanding wisdom and experience likely coming from many things lived throughout life.

§

I feel immense respect for people who are older and wiser than us, and I hope we can connect in an abundance of ways that channels their wisdom towards us and younger generations to come after us. One day I would like to be able to offer just that to the world - all the experiences I have collected throughout life, to those who sometimes struggle and don't always know yet that time passes and flows through our souls like a river to heal and reshape our wounds, stories, and more. That day, Melody's grandmother taught me a lesson of wisdom - and I hope to teach it myself one day.

§

And this is an example of how photography goes for me almost every time I work with clients. The business of taking a client's portrait very quickly develops away from a work assignment into telling the story of people, of their life, their immemorable moments, their connections. It quickly reminds me of my own experiences and connects me in vast ways to our large community of humanity. It reminds me why we are alive, why we need love, and that we all are the same underneath a multitude of circumstantial layers - we are all created and alive by means of love and emotion.

§

Happy Wednesday! <3

Life... and how to learn the art of living... | Los Altos Newborn Photography https://www.eyecatchlight.com/blog/2017/2/life-and-how-to-be-good-at-it Last Friday I had the honour of photographing little Olivia. I was incredibly excited beforehand and knew that this was going to be a very special occasion - but little did I know just how strongly she would influence me. 

§

I think meeting Olivia this past week left me forever changed and transformed - intensely, yet peacefully. And all that by a little girl only nine days of age...

Olivia showed up in her brand new stroller together with her friend the much-larger-than-her elephant. She also had two adult humans with her, two people who had lovingly decided to create new life. Two humans that were just as mesmerized as I was when they and I realized that the creation of life is much, much more than just a life decision - so very much more than just an addition to our own existence.

§

Instead I think we all realized that it is nothing short of a true miracle.

§

The moment I met the eyes of this beautiful new little stranger, I realized that I wasn't just experiencing a moment like any other. It was an instant, in which I witnessed a new, so very tiny little heart that was beating its first few beats, with billions more to come. She had only been here for nine days, yet she knew so much about life already. And she knew even more about love.

§

For one, when I first met her, she was so very peacefully resting. She didn't mind that all the attention was on her, she was peacefully centered within herself and focusing on just one task - to grow, and, to LIVE.

§

Later, the sun was shining on her and she cued and made little sounds to communicate her pleasure with us. She was happy, enjoying her very special moment in the park in the sun! She didn't know that a minute later we'd try to take away her blanket for a cute photo, making her a tad bit uncomfortable. Not knowing that anything uncomfortable might come up, she didn't fear it and just happily babbled away and wiggled her little hands and toes at us.

§

Olivia, in that moment in the sun, didn't know either, that life might bring her difficult moments, that maybe one day she'd be sad or have her heart broken, or that she'd be rejected in some form while she'd be building her career. Instead, she investigated the pretty yellow flowers that we had arranged next to her for the photo. Likewise, after helping her out of her uncomfortable moment by lovingly wrapping her up in warming coziness, she quickly forgot about the painful experience and reverted to smiling and wondering. Instead of worrying about the future, Olivia seemed to have the most passionate interest in what was happening in the now, in that very moment, and what these amazingly interesting flowers were made of!

§

But that is not where my amazement ended. The way Olivia requested and processed love and happiness exuded an unimaginable amount of respect in me. She had all the confidence it took to ask for her much needed and deserved love and care - and love she was given. She marveled at the flowers and was honoured for doing so. She requested warmth and was given just that. She was just Olivia, and she didn't need to be anything other than she wanted to be or already was. She was loved, and she knew she deserved to be. She was loved, and that's all she needed.

§

We as grown-ups can learn so much from this. We worry. We regret. We fear. Sometimes we feel unworthy of love or surround ourselves with the wrong people.

§

But Olivia? She didn't worry. Instead, she wondered. Instead, she soaked up life and love in each moment. She directed sadness at moments when she was truly uncomfortable and then quickly returned to wonder about the world, and all the beautiful flowers in it that she had just discovered. She quickly returned to love, and without a doubt she instinctively knew how to give and receive it. 

§

I believe that Olivia is a true example for the art of living in, as well as loving the moment. She has only lived through very few heartbeats, yet she's already a true master at life and love. I believe Olivia taught me that day that we already know how to live - everything we need to succeed at the simplicity yet vast complexity of life is already within us from day one of our existence. 

§

I believe we can be more like her. Today we don't know that tomorrow we might get injured or lose our job or our partner. And it's not necessary to know. Or to fear, or to worry. Because today we know that we have the beauty of the world and its flowers. Today we know we have love, within us, and from others.

§

I believe we can be more like Olivia. More at peace, in the moment, wondering about the beauty of life and beginning to love every piece of it. We can - because we did, effortlessly - in those first few days of our lives.

§

If you would like to learn how to live, meet a newborn, and you will remember with a force that will shake you up and open your eyes in very powerful yet peaceful waves like those of the vast and wide ocean.

§

Life is lived by instinct. Just dive deeply within your own personal world and you will find an invaluable treasure full of love and wonder. One that is uniquely yours, and the only one that can truly guide you at this marvelous gift called life. You already are everything you'll ever need to be. :-)

§

Happy living and wondering!

Little Felix! https://www.eyecatchlight.com/blog/2017/1/little-felix It is always incredibly special when I receive my clients' cards with the photos I took for them. ❤️ Little Felix's smile made my heart melt and earned a prime spot on our refrigerator - held up by the magnet made at his first birthday party!

These things remind me of why I love photography so much - the ability to build a personal relationship and the trust to capture someone's personality so closely! Thank you Felix! ❤️

Hi, I'm Simone,
I'm your new photographer!

I capture moments of raw life and beauty in a new form of storytelling!

I believe what sets me apart as a photographer is a passion to transform a bare photoshoot into a relaxed moment full of happiness and memories - the opportunity to spend personal quality time that is captured visually by an artistic professional! You deserve this unique treat!

Let's write your story together!
