Tea anyone?

I am so excited to head out to San Francisco this weekend to photograph some of my favorite Bay Area families.

I have been photographing some of these families for over 5 years!!  After photographing the same family

for 5 years for their holiday card, I need to get really creative… what are we going to do this year to out do last years card.

I got it!!! The BEST location, which happens to be my FAVORITE Tea Spot….

Crown and Crumpet!!!!

I am totally obsessed with this Tea Salon.  As you will see in the photos, this is not your grandmother’s kitchen

or a sterile hotel.  It is a photographer’s dream come true, thanks to the Oh, So Creative Amy Dean! (who i know from my advertising days

when she was the best prop stylist in the city)  And you can see that in all her details.

Anyway, come have some tea with your kiddos and a photoshoot to boot!  Please call me 415-505-6065 as to what times I have left, time slots are filling up FAST!

I took these photos the last time I was in San Francisco with my daughter.

Of course, I had to put my daughter in her Rachel Riley Tea outfit, which I’m also obsessed with.

We met up with my dear friend and amazing photographer, Lisa Lefkowitz and her daughter.

What a wonderful day, eating yummy treats, drinking tea and of course taking pictures of our little ones!

Lobster Boil

OK, I gotta say, and i’m not just saying this because it was our party, but this 4th of July was by far the BEST i’ve ever had!!!!

I lived in SF for over 13 years and never saw the fireworks.  2 nights ago in Boston we were ON TOP of the fireworks!! Have you ever been so close

that you have ash falling on you?  So it all started when I found out that James Hook Lobster is open on the 4th.

After ordering 20 yummy steamed lobsters from them, (yes that’s right they cook them for you.  No seafood smell inside my apartment!!

I jumped onto my go to website, Etsy.  Must have photo props of lobster masks, check.

Cute muslin bags to hold bibs, napkins, crackers and of course lobster lollypops, check.

The red and white striped and lobster place mats from Carrot and Stick, check.  Incredible fireworks, thanks to the city of Boston, CHECK!

Yes, my dream had come true, we were going to have a lobster boil on the 4th in our back garden and then watch the fireworks from the roof.

The barge was parked RIGHT in front of our building.  I mean it doesn’t get any better!  The party of the year right outside our home and we didn’t have to leave our place!!!

Surrounded by my fabulous family and great friends we took full advantage of the beautiful evening!!!

My daughter can’t wait until the 4th next year as every morning she has woken up since the 4th she asks, “where are the fireworks?”
