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.
Mom and dad contacted me 4 months before little newborn Margot arrived. I love making that connection and commitment to a family even before they have welcomed their little one. We were able to have conversations about what to expect and solidify the style of the session. I was blown away when I walked into their stunning San Francisco home. Huge vintage windows, tons of light, amazing decor. Mom and dad have incredible style. I am so lucky to be welcomed to their home. Margot was just about 2 weeks old when I met her yet she was still so tiny and adorable! Mom and dad had a few days to get settled and were so calm and peaceful with her. Of course, we could not complete the session without a portrait of their sweet and loving pup!
I was honored to meet little Margot and I cannot wait to see her grow.
When mom saw the photos, she wrote me right away, “We love them!!! Thank you so much for your patience and the beautiful shots.”
