This little baby surprised mom and dad a bit earlier than expected. He was so tiny and absolutely perfect. I was honored to be invited to their apartment in San Francisco to photograph newborn Sabeer. He was so sweet and calm. He slept almost the whole time with breaks just to eat. Look closely at those adorable eyelashes. I was so impressed (and a little jealous) of those long and beautiful lashes! I love capturing the tiny parts with my macro lens so mom and dad can remember just how little he was. Mom and dad both had a lot of ideas for his newborn session and we were able to create so many options for them inside their apartment!
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!
