Tracy, CA wedding photographer

I love weddings!  I love shooting them, and it’s especially sweet when I know the couple.  It’s been fun to watch these two lovely people grow and develop their relationship over the short time that I’ve been in Tracy.  Best wishes and congratulations on the start of their life together!  Enjoy the sneak peek:)

I love being able to see the bride get ready…so much joy and anticipation, giggling and nervous all at the same time.  This bride was no different.  Simply lovely in every way, just beautiful!  Loved her dress so much!

The ceremony took place in the church they both attend.  It was a beautiful and touching ceremony where they had both her grandfather and father participate.  What a joy!

It was so nice that the rain gave us a quick break after the ceremony and allowed us to take some pictures out in the back of the church! So grateful that we were able to get some color!

All of their details were cleverly put together and well thought out.  So fun to take pictures of all of the little things that made up their important day!

And they danced the night away!

Are you getting married sometime this year or next year?  I would love to photograph your wedding!  Please contact me today for more information about how to hire me for your big day.  We can set up a time to meet and I can’t wait to hear about all you have planned!

Also, I do have some spots left for family shoots this fall.  I will be shooting all the way through November and December with guaranteed pictures by the holidays.  Please contact me today if you’d like to have a family session.  Family sessions, newborn sessions, baby sessions, etc. are all great ideas for gifts for other people as well.

Love this sweet family!  They just added baby sister number 4 to their bunch of kiddos, and it was so fun to be able to go spend the morning with them again.  The joy and love that they all share over this new bundle is infectious and wonderful.  Love seeing their bright eyes light up at the chance to touch or hold her…so much love!

And then the big kiddos were able to to to school and that left me with just little sister to focus on…what fun!  She was wide awake at first, but then fell asleep completely:)

Okay, I’m not gonna lie…sometimes when mamas message me about having a crocheted baby item, I cringe a little.  My style is pretty organic, simple, timeless, and sometimes crochet doesn’t fit into that mold.  But, we made this work, and it turned out to be one of the cutest shots!  Love it!

I got to meet the sweetest family last week, and can’t wait to share some of the images from their newborn session.  This gorgeous boy is about 3 weeks old, and adorable as anything!  He was sleepy and ready for his photo session, and slept soundly, and then woke up at the end for some fun expressions.  Love!

Love his sweet face and dark hair, such a joy!

These expressions!  Such an adorable baby!

Love his clear dark eyes so much!

Are you preparing for a new baby to enter your life?  I would love to capture the moments of the first days of life…those sleepy, curly moments that are so sweet…the moments you want to remember forever.  Little babies change so much in the first few days and weeks of life!  I like to get them photographed in their newborn sessions before they start having longer wake times.

I’m also available to capture how much they grow in the first year!  I have different mini sessions available to capture those milestones throughout the year.  After the newborn phase, around 4 months old your baby loves to lay on their back and grab their toes, lifts their head with lots of strength, etc, and it’s a great age to photograph.  Around 6-8 months your baby is sitting without assistance, maybe even crawling early, and are looking much older than their newborn session…another great phase to capture!  Lastly, that 1 year session near their birthday is a rite of passage of sorts…they are standing (maybe even walking), and love to smile.  Many parents love to do a cake smash for their 1st birthday session and it’s so fun to see how they react to it!

Lastly, I do have some spots left for fall sessions.  I know that many people like to do pictures for the holidays, so contact me today for a session.  Can’t wait to meet you!

San Francisco Bay Area Baby and Family Photographer

I have been busy lately!  Newborn babies, families, one month old babies…all ready for their photo sessions with me!  With so many shoots all around the San Francisco area it’s hard to keep up with all the blogging!  But, everyone has their images from me, and I would love to share some on the blog.  Even through the busy season, it’s rare that my families that I photograph have to wait more than a couple of days before they have access to their images.  They’re happy, I’m happy.  Works out great!

First up was this little cutie…wide awake for most of his session, but still simply adorable!

Then, this adorable family that had the best picture window…had to take family shots there!

Such a sweet little face!

Next up is tis adorable baby girl…one month old!

Love her bright blue eyes that she showed off once she was awake!!

Lastly, this awesome family is visiting all the way from Australia…loved seeing how much they loved each other, it was awesome to meet them and see their connection!

Love shooting at Baker Beach!

It was a beautiful sunny and clear day, somewhat unusual at the bridge!

Such handsome boys!!

I have some spots left and available for this fall.  Are you pregnant looking for a maternity or newborn photographer?  Did you just have a baby and are looking for newborn pictures?  Would you like to have some pictures taken of your family in the San Francisco Bay Area?  Please contact me for details and find out how I can meet your needs.  Photographing your family in a place that is special to you is a great way to capture wonderful memories for you.  They make wonderful gifts for family members and parents.  Contact me today for specials on Tracy sessions, all digital packages, and pre-paid discounts!

Tracy, CA newborn photographer | Central Valley Bay Area

This sweet family added one more!  It’s always fun to go back to families where I’ve photographed them for a few years and watch their families grow!  Big sister is almost 2, and they just added number 2…a boy!  What a joy.  When I got there, baby brother had a belly full of milk and was ready to sleep.  He kept his eyes open for a short period of time, and then fell asleep for the rest of his newborn photo session…as one might do with a full belly and a warm atmosphere.  Big sister had me laughing at all her new words and toddler attitude, including talking/babbling into her pretend phone.  I think she’s seen that somewhere before.  As usual though, I could not resist her bright eyes and brown curls in some of the pictures…too cute!  Baby brother just might have blonde hair though!  Compared to big sister and his parents, he has such light eyebrows and lashes…it will be interesting to see how he grows!  Enjoy the sneak peek!

Couldn’t resist posting one of big sister (who loved coming over and sitting on my beanbag:)) while little brother was getting fed again.

…and here she is giving brother some loves <3  She loved to kiss him!

This guy was seriously one of my most “smiliest” babies ever.  He just had a ton to smile about, I guess…and those dimples!!!  To die for!

This guy…8 pounds of chunky cuteness.

If you’re expecting the baby in the next month, spots are filling up fast!  I would love to add you into my schedule so please contact me today and reserve your due date on my calendar!  Once baby is born, then we will get a solid date on the calendar (since we don’t really know when they are actually going to arrive and come home (most of the time)).  I would love to meet you and your family!  Mini sessions for newborns are just for babies (if you’re just looking for a few cute shots of your newborn…maybe for announcements and a few pictures to share), and full sessions have much more variety and allow time for family shots and everything in between!  Hope to meet you soon!
