I had such a fun time with this local family! We scheduled a family session that included the boys' grandfather, who was visiting from Australia. I felt so welcomed and honored to be invited into their home. Some children are shy at first, especially in front of the camera. But the boys were wonderful hosts, and immediately pulled me outside to meet their dog, see their garden and tell me about all of the veggies they were growing. This session was the fantastic end to a lovely Bay Area spring weekend. :)
I was so excited to do a session for this family, especially because we got to include the grandparents! We've had an incredibly stormy and rainy winter here in the Bay Area (so long, California drought!), and the date for our shoot came right in the middle of a wave of storms. We crossed our fingers, hoped for the best, and luckily... got a fantastic morning!
I was so happy to photograph Jeff and Lesley and their sweet boys again at the end of last year. They were one of my first ever clients four years ago (not to mention being awesome friends)! It has been such a joy to photograph their growing family over the years. This year, we luckily got a break in the Northern California rain, so we headed out for a fun late afternoon shoot.
It's so much fun to shoot photographer friends! I had a great time doing a family shoot for my friend (and fellow photographer!) Deborah and her sweet family. We spent a lovely evening just before sunset at Cuesta Park in Mountain View. It was a great excuse to let the kids stay up a little bit late, and inspired us to get our families together for a dinner picnic.
Side note - Deborah is an awesome photographer. She shot my son's birthday party over the summer, and gave us some of my favorite photos ever of my own family.

My love of family photography began with my own family. They will always be my favorite subjects to shoot. Living in the Bay Area, we're lucky to live just a quick drive away from the beach. We make trips to our favorite Santa Cruz beach often. My kids are total water babies, and will happily spend all day in the freezing cold Pacific Ocean.
I got behind on blogging this summer, but I wanted to share Rea and Richie's maternity session from earlier this summer. We had so much fun spending time together during the shoot. Rea was gorgeous and positively glowing. Their sweet baby girl was born a few weeks ago (that's how behind I am on the blog...)!
Photographing a new baby is always special, but Chloe's shoot was extra special, as her mom has been a dear friend of mine for over fifteen years. Not only was I so excited to meet this sweet girl, but I was so honored that her parents trusted me to take her newborn photos. You're an absolute gem, Chloe - and I can't wait to watch you grow!
I had an awesome time shooting James for his third birthday, along with his parents Laura and Joe. Toddlers and preschoolers are my absolute favorite to capture. They are hilarious and adventurous and fun... little whirling balls of energy. Happy 3rd birthday, James - you're one cool little guy!
