hello handsome! {baby photoshoot: brady}

look at this darling little face! can you stand it?

this was such a fun photoshoot - brady's dad, dan, decided to surprise his wife taylor with some photos for mother's day. the planning was kind of hilarious {how can he "borrow the baby" without her getting suspicious?}. we decided to wander around the marina in san francisco and visit all the places that were special when taylor and dan first met, fell in love, and moved in together. we did everything from crissy field to the palace of fine arts {as shown above} and even their old apartment building. it was such a special, personal shoot, and i'm so glad that taylor loved it too. these are just a handful of my favorites, and that brady is a charmer!

baby you're a firework

you guys - i'm blogging! sorry for my multi-week absence. it has been sort of a crazyland around here with a hectic work schedule {...and some fun activities, who are we kidding, i'm not a total monster}. as i sort through tons of fun photos from hikes, adventures in marin, adorable baby photoshoots, and so on, i just had to share this amazing video from saturday's celebration of the golden gate bridge. it was the 75th anniversary of its opening {aka, its "birthday"}, so everyone gathered on their roofs and crissy field to watch the most absurd fireworks show i have EVER seen. it truly puts the 4th of july to shame. enjoy!

derby day!

i hosted a little derby party on saturday, and my main reaction is: who knew mint juleps were SO GOOD?! we had a fun lunch of pasta salad, potato salad, veggies, chips, and of course...PIES! and in addition to the mint juleps, sweet tea vodka + lemonade made for a refreshing treat.
we made our way over to a local bar right before the main race to get our bets in {cody won $50 - woo}, and then the day pretty much turned into cinco de mayo. not planning to share those mustachio'd photos. ;)

hope you're having a wonderful week!
