The world just got a little sweeter now that baby Ryan is here. I was lucky enough to spend some time with her and her family at my Portrero Hill studio in San Francisco for this peaceful newborn photography session. A new life is very much like a new year. Full of potential and opportunity. It’s always special for me to capture those first few memories and in this case, their first photographs as a party of five. The family traveled down to the studio from Mill Valley. Even though she had already slept in the car, wee Ryan slept the entire time and did so well for her first session. Big sister was just beaming with pride. It was fun to watch her cuddle with her new sibling through my camera lens. Big brother was just as joyful to have another little sister to love. Oh the adventures these three will have! I hope these photographs will be special to them down the road whenever they look back at their first few days together. I look forward to watching Ryan grow.
