San Francisco Baby Photographer

Well, even though I have been shooting, it’s been hard to keep up with the blog this summer!  So, I decided to share a sampling of some of my latest photo sessions.  Two of them took place in San Francisco, and one in Pleasanton, CA…the east San Francisco Bay Area.  Since I moved to the Central Valley, the summers are quite warm.  It’s been a treat to be able to pop over to San Francisco and catch some of the cooler summer weather.  It makes for gorgeous backdrops for photo sessions…green and pretty.

This first family met me at Alviso Adobe Park in Pleasanton, CA for their annual family photo session.  It was great to see them, take their portraits, and see how fun their family dynamics have changed by adding one more baby into the mix!  He is almost a year old, and loving life!

Love big sister’s smiles…she loves to play!

The second portrait session I will share is a sweet family in San Francisco, CA.  Their baby girl (who I just photographed last year!) is turning one!  She had her birthday party that day…and even though I don’t advertise birthday parties, I am available to come and take pictures of your fun day.  This family had me come a touch early and we photographed baby girl around her home.  It was so great to see her up, standing and walking!

And lastly…this sweet family took advantage of my outdoor mini sessions!  Baby only for 30 minutes, 10 digital images to download.  But, I ended up with way more than 10 because she was such a cutie!  That’s ok, mommy has the chance to upgrade and buy all of them if she would like!  We met at the Palace of Fine Arts…one of my favorite backgrounds and location for images.  Beautiful day for a beautiful baby!

Central CA Wedding Photographer| Pageo Lavender Farm Wedding

I have known this sweet couple for a looong time.  It’s been wonderful to watch this beautiful girl grow into an amazing woman.  Their sweet spirits are truly beautiful.  She found her match in a handsome guy, and watching their relationship go from brand new to years old, and finally to walk down the aisle starting their marriage is special.  Incredibly special.  They had a beautiful wedding on Pageo Lavender Farm in Turlock, CA.  It turned out to be a cloudy, but mild day…great light for an outdoor, rustic wedding.  Every detail was thought out…even the rough edged material on her gown mimicked the venue.  I arrived to the guy’s room a little early, and they were ready to go…sunglasses, white shirts, gray suits.  Stunning.  The ladies were getting ready at the farm…pink satin robes, makeup and hair.  It was fun to see them at their very best…familiar faces from long ago, hugs and tears…a perfect wedding.  Thank you all for having myself and Chris a part of it…thank you for the years of babysitting before it, and all the laughs in PH youth group.  I truly hope the best of wishes to you both, and an amazing future ahead of you!

Enjoy your sneak peek!

Getting ready!

A double line of sparklers sent them on their way…enjoy the Jamaica honeymoon!

San Francisco Bay Area newborn photographer | Tracy, CA twins

After moving to the central valley, it’s been interesting learning the new territory…commuting to the Bay Area (my primary place of work), and making new photography friends out here in Tracy, CA.  Meeting Mariann of Stolte Photography has been so fun!  We live a street over from one another, and it’s really been a great way to connect with each other, and occasionally help each other out!  I had the pleasure of photographing twins with her the other day.  Twins are always a challenge, and it’s always nice to have another set of hands when dealing with newborn twins especially!  Learning a routine, give and take, and making the most of a twin session is a challenge in and of itself, and I was pretty excited about how these sweet little guys did, and how well they handled their first photo shoot.  What great fun!

Something about the smirks always get me!  These two were sleepy and adorable.  Thanks for letting me capture a few of the images that I posed!

If you are located in the San Francisco Bay Area or the Central Valley, California, I would love to capture special memories of your loved ones.  Please contact me today if you are pregnant, had a baby, had twins or multiples, and are interested in pictures of them!  Let’s take the time to capture all of the tiny parts before time flies and they are grown.  I will travel to you, bring everything necessary for a fun, timeless session, and we will spend the morning capturing the beauty of your family.  New babies have tiny details that I love capturing…sweet sleeping faces, expressions, tiny hands, fingers and toes…eyelashes, cheek fuzz, and anything else we can see!  They have their entire lives to take awake, smiling pictures…and only a short time to capture “newborn.”  Contact me today!

Bay Area Newborn Photographer| 9 day old baby

This morning I got to meet a special, tiny, new buddy.  He was perfect in every way.  Adorable, sweet, and everything in between.  I got to do his mommy’s maternity session last month, and spent the better part of this morning with them in Fremont, CA, doing his newborn photo session.  I love being able to capture all his tiny features, and can’t wait to be able to show him off.  Such a peanut!  His mommy and daddy are incredibly special people…I’ve been able to watch them grow into a couple, date, get married, and now start a family.  What a joy…so lucky!

blue box baby ACP

Love the soft tones!  Mommy put it perfectly when she dubbed him “hipster baby.”  Love the slouch hat!

San Francisco Newborn Photographer

Welcome to the world, little guy!  He is 8 days old and already loved so much by his mommy, daddy, and big brother (who I photographed 2 years ago–time flies!).  It was a pleasure to spend the morning with them in their San Francisco home, and welcome baby brother into the world with his first photo session.  I love capturing baby portraits…they have such a sweet way about them.  There are so many wonderful things to remember about newborns…how tiny they are, all their little details, and how they curl up, like they are still in the womb.  Sigh.  Enjoy!

Alert at first…waiting for some big brother love!

Family love, and peek-a-boo with big brother!

All asleep, and ready for pictures;)
