Blackies Pasture in Tiburon, offers an array of settings, but only at the right time of day. You don't want to book a shoot at high noon, so the best times are early morning, and golden hour - just before sunset.Read More
I was happy to discover the secret garden behind Stolte Grove in Mill Valley - Thanks Tiffany! I was overjoyed to see this awesome family again - I think this was our 4th year together! I am so grateful for families likes these.Read More

On a rare occasion, I'll take a house-call for family photos, and this time I totally scored with Meghan and Carson's house, as it offered us multiple scenes, and the lighting was in a cooperative mood. Typically house-calls are only reserved for newborn shoots, as I do not know the layout and light of your house, and I like to scout and map my shoots beforehand. Thank you M & C - it was so awesome finally meeting baby! I first met Meghan in March, when she was pregnant with Ryan. Coincidentally, Ryan was born on my due-date, so it was cool seeing into the future of my family that Nick and I are creating.Read More
Sarah & Aaron have been my friends for YEARS - But for some reason, we've let YEARS go by without taking pics of their kids. This year was different! I feel so honored to capture this family and also document their NEW PUPPY! Nothing like a beautiful family and a Berner Puppy for CLICKBAIT! xoxoxo aniseRead More
I've been taking pictures of this fun family for 3 years now, and every year they manage to color coordinate with the location PERFECTLY. This year we chose the ridge the divides the San Rafael Sun Valley neighborhood, with the Terra Linda side of San Rafael. It has multiple names: Ridgewood Trail, Sleepy Hollow Terra Linda Divide, Sorich Ranch.... All of those names work! Thank you P Family for your continued support.Read More
Online Dating profile pics are a favorite of mine, because we get a few outfit changes, and its always fun trying to capture someone's true self. Here are some images from a recent shoot that took place at China Camp Village, in Marin County.Read More
I love it when a family is so perfectly color coordinated! They took a leap with the mustard yellow accent, and putting both men in plaid that compliments each other. I love mixtures of patterns and materials too. This shoot was scheduled for a mother who has recently changed her title to Grandmother, with 2 adorable new babies under 1 year old. An extended shoot is more of a bargain, and is perfect for when relatives are in town. Two of these families were not from the Bay Area. The Extended Family shoot package is $450, and can be divided amongst the family members, so everyone walks away with at least 20 images per family. This shoot produced a staggering 195 images in a little under 1 hour of shooting! Thank you Felicia for booking a shoot with me, and thank you ENTIRE FAMILY for helping make these babies smile from behind the lens. xoxoxo AniseRead More
The pictures are beautiful! You truly captured Josie's little (big) personality. Thank you so much for such a wonderful experience and turning these around so quickly. I am so happy that we now have these great shots for our memories of this special time with her.
Now the hardest part is going to be picking which photo for the card! Let me know where we should send it!Read More
Well China Camp sure is the hidden gem this year, isn't it?!? Here we have Chloe, a daughter from Sacramento. Her parents and I have our outfit changes down to a science, so we were able to fit a few looks into one mini-shoot. Thank you Chloe for being an absolute sweetheart.
Note from Chloe's Dad: Thank you Anise. These photos of Chloe are wonderful! Let us know if you are ever in the Sacramento area to take some photos.
Family of 4 from Anchorage Alaska, booked a photo shoot with me while they were in town visiting their daughter who attends college here in California. Thank you S family for choosing my work, and hope you have a wonderful holiday season!Read More
This year I met up with the B family over Thanksgiving break at their vacation rental in Marshall, California! What a treat it was - the kids all smiled for every pic, the lighting was GORGEOUS, and they indulged me in a couple of poses that weren't soo traditional. I am so blessed to have such a fun, carefree group of clients. Thank you B family, it was a treat!Read More
Point Bonita, in the Marin Headlands is a perfect place for a portrait session - even if the lighthouse isn't open (which is usually isn't). This location offers coastal, forests, graffiti covered bunkers and great silhouette options! This was a full hour of shooting - my standard shoot, listed under pricing.Read More
This little guy was in the best mood, and totally game for every picture pose we created. China Camp has been the dreamiest location this year, I love the light, and it has only been crowded once during the busy holiday card season.Read More
I swear partially cloudy days are the best for pics. This shoot took place at the Sleepy Hollow / Terra Linda Divide in San Rafael - this starts at the end of Ridgewood Drive in the Sun Valley Neighborhood. We had the hills to ourselves, and it was a group effort in terms of posing - half of these poses were Luke's (pictured here standing on the rock) idea!Read More
This shoot was one of those instances where the timing was just a little bit off - our youngest model here unexpectedly took a nap the afternoon before the shoot, so waking him up for pictures was definitely a challenge! With the collective effort of Mom, Dad and Big Brother, we ended up getting some smiles! Wardrobe note: I typically shy away from logos & neons, but in this instance, it worked!Read More
Every year, these sisters hire me to take pics for both of their families, and this year it was festive and entirely too much fun as the kids are filled with tons of jokes, smiles, hugs, & laughter. Thank you for your continued support C & S families!Read More
Old Mill Park in Mill Valley is the tried & true location for the Redwoods/Evergreen Holiday look, which is perfect for your Holiday Card, if that is what you are looking for.Read More
You are not going to believe this when I say it, but this here is Walter - one of Harolds best friends. We met this family when Harold was a puppy, and they were so in love with him, that they offered to puppysit. We took them up on the offer, and as one of our many thank you's I offered to take pics of the boys.Read More
When Linsey contacted me and wanted portraits of her family taken in downtown Tiburon, I jumped at the opportunity! What a fun shoot this was, with a totally delightful family. Thank you so much for choosing my work, in an area filled with talent!Read More
