Nancy and Adolfo came to the studio for a last minute maternity session in November. I loved hearing about how they first met and fell in love..
Speaking of love, Zoe, came into their lived just a few weeks after and filled their home with a love that was greater than they could have imagined. Nancy had some cute accessories already chosen for Zoe’s debut including a flower headband and a knit hat. I set up a studio in their home in Newark and started with some lovely cream colored fabric. Zoe did great! We got some super cute sleepy photographs along with some very awake expressions! I can’ t wait to see Zoe grow up!
We absolutely love the holidays here! Amidst the scrambling and anxiety, I love that families can take a moment to really enjoy each other during our shoots! Jennifer and her family came to me at the very last second in 2010 and had a great experience! We were able to schedule them a little earlier this season which made mom a little more at ease knowing that her cards would arrive on time. Scheduling a photo shoot in November in San Francisco can be tricky and potentially wet! Of course, it had rained most of the day but cleared up just as we arrived to the Legion of Honor. The legion is a great place for a family photo session. The columns offer fabulous graphic elements to the photographs and a sense of dimension. But what are we really talking about here? The CUTE boys!! Look at them in their complimentary sweaters and sweet, sweet smiles. These boys are incredibly well behaved and seriously sweet. Yes, there is the occasional crazy face and freak out which I love as well! We hope for more cooperative weather next year, but we sure made the best of our opportunity at the Legion of Honor!
Mom said, “We love the photos. You do excellent work and the boys and I love working with you!”
Little Jackson arrived to a joyful family in Berkeley with beautiful eyes and a calm demeanor (or at least that is what I saw!!). I was so lucky to get to meet Jackson just 7 days after he was born. I set up a studio inside their home to capture Jacksons little features and some cozy poses. We ended up using the very neat living room as a backdrop for our family portraits. Their first baby, the pup, was so well behaved and very interested in having his photo taken too! We captured some beautiful black and white images of the family enjoying some peace together. Grandma and Grandpa were on the set and were nearly in tears watching this tender moment.
A beautiful pregnant mom and dad came to the studio just a few weeks before their daughter was born. We had a fabulous time getting to know each other and of course taking some lovely maternity portraits! I was thrilled and honored to be on their call list when they arrived home from the hospital. I set up a mini studio in studio in their warm bedroom in some fabulous window light. We set up cozy blankets and textured fabrics for Bridgette to snuggle into. Mom had knit her daughter a very sweet hat and blanket that we used during our session too. We even used a cherished bamboo bowl! Bridgette was such a doll during the newborn session… She did exactly what we hoped! Check out her sweet expressions, even some smiles and sleepy poses….
