Alamo Square, San Francisco Family Photographer

We happened upon another beautiful sunny day in San Francisco!  Love when we catch the city in such beauty rather than the fog!  It makes for happy days, happy attitudes, and happy photo sessions!  Love this sweet family.  They are repeat clients that I look forward to each year.  It’s so wonderful to see them ready for their session, kids a little older, reaching more milestones, and too cute!  Can’t express my gratitude enough to be able to photograph them.  This time, rather than a home session or a park in the east bay, we headed into the city.  Love the landmark of the Painted Ladies in Alamo Square, and though it was a CRAZY busy day in the city, we were able to make it look like we had the park to ourselves.  Hope you enjoy your sneak peek, sweet family!

Sweet girl is 1 and so excited about it!  She’s also daddy’s girl and the huge smile we can only attribute to his presence, haha!

Love those blue eyes!!  So expressive!

Love all their expressions here!

We had a little fun with a birthday hat and a tutu!

…meanwhile brother was running around.  True boy, loved it, had to capture it!

Love the warm light…

We were pretending to be dinosaurs here…

Love mommy snuggles and kisses!!

And lastly a walk through the row houses near the square.  Such history, such beauty!

8 month old baby boy | San Francisco Bay Area baby photographer

I headed out to Union City, Ca in the San Francisco East Bay Area this morning for this sweet guy’s 8 month old photo session!  He was so expressive!  Watching him react to our different actions (mostly trying for the BIG grin) was hilarious.  I can’t wait to show you his sneak peek!  Enjoy!

Love his huge wide eyes!  With that gorgeous baby skin…what a wonderful combination!  Everybody loves a little baby chub, so sweet!

He’s killing me, hilarious!  Love him!

Are you kidding me?  Surprised!  Love him!

…and finally the big grin.  Love that wide smile!  Thank you sweet boy!

Bay Area baby photographers | 8 week old twins

It was a gorgeous day outside this morning in Hayward, Ca.  This sweet family welcomed twins into their family just 8 weeks ago!  When babies are older, it definitely gets trickier to do newborn “posed” pictures, but these two twins, one boy, one girl, handled it like true champs.  They are both unique already, and it’s so fun to point out the differences between the two, and the similarities as well.  It’s pretty clear that the little boy looks so much like daddy, and the little girl like her mommy.  But both of them have this adorable chin with a dimple, and neither parent seems to have that trait!  It’s fun that they share it, and it is super adorable too:).  They were easy to love, and I hope they enjoy their sneak peek.  Thanks for having me out to photograph them, mom and dad!

They started out pretty awake, as most babies do…

Little girl first…love her sweet wide eyes and the expression here is just priceless!

…and together!  He was pretty sleepy, and just wanted to cuddle with sister:)

…and little guy by himself…love when babies smile in their sleep!

Then they both got pretty sleepy for awhile.  See what I mean about that chin??!!

And then he woke up and sister really wanted to just stay sleepy.  I suppose that’s a twin thing!

Seriously loving that concerned and curious look he keeps giving me!

And the two of them together!  Sweet as pie:)

Such cuties!!

Palm Event Center Photographers | Pleasanton, CA

Well, here is a switch from many baby blog posts to something quite different…a wedding!  This wonderful couple got married at the Palm Event Center in Pleasanton, CA at Ruby Hill.  What a gorgeous location for a wedding!  It’s such a gorgeous location for a couple to tie the knot.  They’ve been together through so much…military life, deployment, and despite hard times are truly meant for each other.  He is currently in the army (former marine!), and she’s planning to be a doctor.  Such ambition!  I’m so thankful for this groom’s commitment to serving our country, and it was an honor and a pleasure to be able to capture their special day.  It was warm, but a touch cloudy…beautiful lighting for images, and nice for guests to sit out of the sun through the ceremony.  There was a party atmosphere throughout the reception for sure, and fun people all around for them to share the night with.  Close friends, sweet family, and even the sweet bride’s dog was the ring bearer at the wedding.  He did is job perfectly!

Well, thank you for allowing me to be part of the day, lovely bride and groom.  Enjoy your life together, and cherish the memories always.  Enjoy your sneak peek!

Isn’t she stunning?

Gorgeous ceremony location!

Sabre arch to welcome her into their military family:)

Love!  Among the vineyard.

So in love!

She ended the evening in a gorgeous red dress with a silver dragon down the front.  She rocked it…stunning.

The Estate Room was filled with barrels…and empty.  We had to take advantage of it for some final shots!  Such a stunning location, place, couple and event!

…and there are MANY more images and video clips to be seen here on the fusion video!  It’s so fun to be able to put small videos together for wedding couples.  It’s something I’ve been doing for a few years now.  I like to supplement the pictures (the main event…why they hired me) with short video clips that help to emphasize the atmosphere, texture, and really, just to give movement to the pictures.  I just love how it turned out…enjoy!

San Francisco Bay Area Newborn Photographer

Another gorgeous day in San Francisco today!  Little guy was 11 days old and ready for his newborn session bright and early this morning!  He was the calmest, sweetest little guy, and it was great to be able to have so much fun posing him up!  He started out in a dreamy awake phase, and then drifted off!  Can’t wait to show you his sneak peek!

Love this little smirk he had!  He reminded me why I love to photograph these little people so much.  What a joy!

…and he fell asleep!

They had the prettiest light coming in a large window…it skimmed beautifully over his face accentuating his beautiful features.  Gorgeous!

Love all his pile of toes, back wrinkles, squishy cheeks…everything!

Simple and modern…love that!

He totally made me work for this next one…but it might even be my favorite!

Love when babies put their head on their hands…so sweet, relaxed and innocent looking!

Precious fingertips!

Well, I have just a few slots left for summer photography before the fall rush where everyone is looking for family sessions and family pictures for holiday cards and such…so if you are looking for a newborn photographer, don’t hesitate to contact me right away (even while you are still pregnant and waiting for baby to arrive) to be sure I leave room for you in my schedule.  I love photographing these little people so much, and enjoy meeting all their family that comes with it:)  I would love to be able to capture these memories for you or someone you love…timeless pictures that are perfect memories of your little bundle of joy…memories you can look back on in the years to come.  It’s only once in a lifetime that we can capture all the “newness” of a sweet baby, and I would love to be your photographer too!
