I visited baby Ava for her in home newborn session at her adorable apartment in San Francisco. The apartment had all of the regal and decor straight from the 30’s when it was built. Mom and dad decorated the apartment in a modern, efficient and super cool way, I loved it. Newborn Ava did amazing at her session. She was over 9lbs when she was born which made her features even more full and adorable!
My favorite photo of Ava is her all wrapped up in the pink gauze fabric ready for her close up. I can’t wait to see her grow!
I had the greatest pleasure of meeting newborns Matteo and Luca in their home in San Francisco. They were unbelievable. Both boys smiled throughout the session, how lucky! They were both still very tiny despite coming at almost 40 weeks. (Go mama!) Both parents were thrilled that they did not have to leave the house for the session. The thought of packing both boys, and their belongings and feeling settled was overwhelming. I get that. I did not want to leave my house after my babies were born and I only had one at a time! Love these little boys.
Sweet little newborn Mihir. I love his long eyelashes (from his daddy!) and his sweet expressions. Mom and dad wanted to incorporate more bold colors than I typically work with and I was thrilled with the result. Mom was gifted some beautiful Sari’s from her in-laws and we were able to wrap Mihir in them. Check out all of the deep bold colors in this session!
I went to their home in Oakland, CA and set up a few scenes near the window. The weather was cool and rainy but perfectly toasty, warm inside so little Mihir slept and slept. He was perfect.
I was so honored to photograph tiny newborn baby E at his house in San Rafael. I have been friends with mom and dad for many years. I even went to Germany to photograph their wedding in 2009. That was a lifetime ago!
This little guy graced their family as a tiny 6lb bundle of joy. Big sis was THRILLED to have a little brother to love and dote on. She kept telling her dad, “Dad, you need to shush him differently, you are doing it wrong!” I thought that was hilarious! 7 year old big sisters know how it is done, apparently!
Baby E was just 5 days when I met him. It took him a while to settle but once he did, he was amazing and gave us a big smile too! I am so honored to get to see my friends and their babies at the most tender and special time.
