Violet's Peapods:


I'd like to introduce you to a wonderful addition to the baby sleep sack market. Violet’s Peapod was officially launched in February of 2008, created by an East Bay mom who was on a personal quest for unique & breathable baby sleep sacks for my unborn baby, Violet. Unhappy with the lack of quality and choice available in the marketplace, she decided to take matters into my own hands and designed what she considered to be the ideal baby sleep sack. She liked the results so much that she decided to have her San Francisco Bay Area-made, simply adorable baby sleep sacks available to everyone. Visit www.violetspeapod.com for more information.

Hold'em Photography:


My love of photography began as a child when my Grandfather converted a small closet at home into a dark room where we hand developed images by hand. My interest and involvement in the photographic arts continued to grow through the years and after the birth of my third child I decided to turn my lifelong passion into my main career. It has been one of the best decisions I have ever made. I get to connect with people at pivotal points in their lives. It may be a birth, a wedding, a milestone birthday or just because they too realize how fleeting our time here is and want to capture just a little bit of it...
Moments in time that tell one amazing story of someone's life. I am honored and awestruck every time I get a chance to be a part of the creative process by using my photo journalistic style to document these moments. I would be honored to help tell your story as well...
