Some details from a beautiful backyard baby shower I had the pleasure of photographing recently!  Guests lunched poolside & were invited to design a bib or t-shirt for Baby Lockhart!

I’m finally getting around to posting part 2 of my Paris trip!  If you missed part 1, you can see it here.

Paris is seriously such a beautiful city!  I loved the way all the buildings looked with their cute little balconies & potted plants and ornate doors!  And I LOVED their public transit!  It was so easy to get around the city by metro and by Velib (their bike share system).  And now with so many smart phone apps that have offline maps with location services (meaning you’re not using any data but your phone can still detect where you are), you never have to worry about getting lost!  My favorite apps for getting around in Paris were Ulmon and Paris Metro.  The TripAdvisor app is also a good one.

Also, I have to mention that Michelle & I were very impressed with what people were able to transport via their bikes.  We saw a lady with a special little hook on the back of her bike that allowed her to pull her rolling suitcase behind her.  So clever!  Oh, we also saw a TON of people on roller blades…including some police officers at the Louvre!  I love that Paris is so multi-modal.

Enjoy these little snippets of Paris!

A few weeks ago I headed up to Santa Cruz to photograph a maternity session for Stephanie and Bruce.  I loved being able to photograph them in their home – it was the perfect setting for this sweet and intimate shoot!  And isn’t their baby room the cutest?!  Loved all the cute travel-inspired decor!

Last week Steph & Bruce welcomed a baby boy into the world!  Congrats!!
