Vada & Jess

The intimacy, coziness and love in this shoot makes me so darn happy. I met Vada at Barre class quite some time ago and quickly learned that she is an amazing makeup artist who I referred several of my clients to for photo shoots.

Vada now lives in sunny California, but prior to her move, I photographed her and her girlfriend Jess in their home. I asked them not over think what they wore and to be in more loungewear type outfits — I wanted to capture them as if they were having a cozy afternoon in. My hope was to show a new type of session which was based more on connection and love at home, rather than traveling to a remote mountain (which as you know, I would shoot any day of the week!) As an artist, I loved the idea of trying something new and this felt so aligned with my hopeless romantic, homebody self! (Not to mention, how cute are they??)

This session is so beautiful and simple. Master Oakland Enchanted is the adorable kitty who joined in on the fun and I'm so excited to share more of this awesome session with you all. I would love to photograph more couples in their homes as an anniversary session, just-because session or as an engagement session. Be ready to give your sweetie lots of love and I'll have my camera ready!

Thank you so much for letting me spend an afternoon capturing your warm and comforting love, Vada & Jess! It will always be one of my favorites.
