I loved photographing this family in their amazing home in San Francisco. I met mom and dad just a few weeks earlier for a maternity shoot and fell in love with them! Mom is chill and fun and dad makes her laugh! They are so cute to watch. How special to see them with their growing family when Amara was just a few days old. They had a few special blankets that were made for baby Amara that mom wanted to incorporate into the session. I love using special items like this because it makes each session unique. I often do newborn sessions in the home to keep everyone comfortable. I can create a studio feel even in the home. This gives a unique feel for the family photos and a more studio look for the photos of just the baby. This is my favorite combination. Amara was a perfect newborn sleeping through all of my poses and clothing changes! Mom had little leg warmers that I just had to use. So cute! Look at her tiny little feet and hands. I just love her all snuggled up!
I was so lucky to meet little DJ when he was just 8 days old. Mom and dad loved the photos so much they decided to upgrade to the Full Year Package (see info here)
I am so thrilled because I get to watch this adorable cherub blossom. Look at his sweet, plump cheeks. Mom and I were working hard to get DJ to smile but we knew as soon as dad walked in the door, he would light up. Sure enough, dad brought out all of the smiles. I love when families with babies come to the studio so I can do a variety of scenes and outfit changes all within a comfortable setting. Mom saw the photos and said, “Thank you thank you thank you!! I love the pictures so much! I can’t believe how many amazing pics you were able to get of DJ even though he was being cranky most of the day :)”
Levi’s mom called me a few months before her due date to take about her newborn portrait ideas. We chatted over the phone and I got a great sense of what she was after! When baby Levi arrived, I was so honored to go to their home when he was just a few days old. The nursery was so cool! Amazing decor all put together cleverly. It was a HOT day in San Francisco, a rare scorching and humid day. You know who loved it? Levi! Mom, not so much.
I did a mixture of lifestyle and newborn portraits for them to make sure I capture the essence of their space as well. It turned out that Levi’s dad grew up in my hometown and was best friends with a friend of mine from high school. It is a small world! I can’t wait to see Levi grow!
I have been blessed to have photographed this beautiful family since their twin 9-year-old boys were just newborns. They were tiny little bundles of adorableness. Look at them now with their little brother in the mix. Let’s not forget this year’s newest addition, Roger! Roger is so cute and fluffy, he reminds me of a muppet! Roger was definitely trying to hog the attention of the camera. The boys are so funny, I could hear them whispering in each other’s ears teasing each other but then they would all look at the camera and smile! They are rough and tough but love snuggling with their stuffed animals. I love visiting their home in San Francisco to capture the family in their own amazing environment. Their house is filled with light and sweet decor.
Love this family who has given me the honor of photographing them for 9 years!
