Palo Alto, CA maternity photographer

I met this couple last night in the beautiful Gamble Gardens in Palo Alto, CA.  I love the spring there…everything is in bloom, all of the flowers are so colorful and gorgeous!  This adorable couple is expecting their first baby any day now!  It was so fun to capture their excitement and be able to see how much they already love their little one.  It was a gorgeous evening with warm weather, so it was wonderful to be out and photographing.

Enjoy a few pictures from their session!

Love those…so hard to pick a favorite!  I love shooting bellies and babies…are you expecting?  Please contact me today in order to get on the calendar.  I have had a crazy busy spring which prevents constant blogging…so please find me over on Instagram (AngelaChandlerPhotography) and Facebook.  I post more often over there and it’s easier to post just a few shots here and there…new babies, families, maternity sessions and all different kinds of portraits.

Los Altos, CA newborn baby photographer | 2 weeks old

It’s been 3 years since I’ve seen this family…almost to the day!  It was great to help them welcome in a new baby to the family!  Big sister was pleased as punch to be able to hold him, squeeze him, and kiss him!  It was so adorable…new baby brother, all dressed up and ready for his portraits, was so cute in some of the expressions he gave me too.  It had me believing that he was simply tolerating all the “love” that was being sent his way.  Too cute!  Enjoy!

He he he!  That last expression is so cute, kills me!

Are you looking for a newborn baby photographer in the greater bay area?  I would love to be able to send you some information.  Please contact me today through the contact button, and I will get back to you very quickly with portrait pricing, session agreement, and tips on what to wear.  I’m now booking for spring sessions as well.  Do you need a good Mother’s Day gift?  Please consider giving mom or mom-to-be a photo session.  She would love it, I promise 🙂

Newborn sessions and family sessions are my favorite to shoot.  I come to your home, or location of your choosing, and we capture all the pictures in a safe, warm environment.  Babies and older siblings generally are more comfortable in their own home.  There is no stress on mommy or daddy to have to gather up everything that one might need away from home, get ready, try and feed the baby before driving, etc.  I have all the props, blankets, hats, and headbands that one might need for a session, and I bring a nice selected variety with me.  Have you seen something on my site that you would like me to bring?  Simply mention it to me and I would be happy to bring it along.  Hope to see you soon!

Isleton, CA Delta Diamond Farm Wedding Photographer

It’s spring and we are getting into wedding season, yay!  It’s so exciting to be able to capture the wonderful weather, flowers, and gorgeous landscape!  This Sunday was no different.  Beautiful couple, so in love, so ready to get married…and capturing wonderful memories for them is such a joy.  It was my first time to this venue, and I have to say it’s a pleasure to shoot there.  Great helpful staff, and very attentive to everyone’s needs.

This sweet bride has always had such a cheery disposition.  I had the pleasure of knowing her as a young girl, high school girl, and now ready to go and get married.  She chose to marry this tall, handsome fellow, and they just fit together so well.  Their ceremony and reception were full of tons of special little details and things that they had thought of to make the day their own.  The bride had everything planned well planned out, exactly how it should go, yet gave flexibility where she needed, and ended up with some fun memories of her special day.  She was the epitome of the perfect bride, and it was so much fun to be there with them, taking pictures of their big day!

Please enjoy these wonderful wedding pictures of their big day…congratulations you two!  If you’re looking for a photographer for your special day, I would love to be considered for it!  My wedding website is www.weddings.angelachandlerphotography.com so just shoot me a message and I will get back to you as soon as possible!  I can also be reached on Facebook and Instagram under “Angela Chandler Photography.”  I hope to capture your big day as well!…or family…or new baby…whatever things may come your way in the future!  Contact me for any of these sessions today <3  Thanks, and enjoy!

Berkeley, CA newborn photographer |5 day old baby

I love getting to meet new little people!  This sweet baby with perfect skin and a perfectly round head is 5 days new.  She is welcomed into the world by two adoring parents and two adorable older siblings.  It’s great when the older siblings are interested in the new baby and are willing to hold and touch the baby.  It does make for sweet pictures and a lovely session in general!  I started out with sibling and family pictures first so that they could be excused to go play, and then we just focused on baby girl, so sweet!

I think sometimes the simplest pictures are my favorites…that and baby back rolls.  Always.

When they look up at you like this in the middle of a session I’m not always sure what’s going to happen, but after a little milk she went right back out 🙂

The day ended in smiles, it turns out…that’s always a good sign!

Are you pregnant and hoping to get on my schedule for a maternity or newborn shoot?  Please contact me today!  I do have some March and April availability.  I’m also booking for spring outdoor sessions!  Are your children over the age of 1?  I love to be able to capture older children off of backdrops out in the open.  Photo sessions are much more natural feeling and less stressful when we aren’t trying to wrangle a toddler on a backdrop that is so tiny.  Contact me today to take advantage of some of the beautiful weather we are having and the blooms that are starting to crop up all over the bay!  I keep a close eye on different locations to make sure we hit them at just the right time of year!  The almond blossoms are falling, but I probably have one more weekend left if you’d like to try and get on my schedule.  Contact me today!

Tracy, CA almond blossom session

These lovely blossoms come around once a year.  I haven’t blogged in a few months, but I knew that I had to blog these images since they were taken among the most gorgeous of trees.  These blossoms last for a couple of weeks only, and are around in late February of each year.  There is still one more weekend with these blossoms, so please let me know right away if you’re interested in a photo session, I will try my best to fit you in!

Being able to photograph this sweet family is truly a joy…it’s been fun to watch them go from high schoolers, to getting married, to growing their family.  It’s a beautiful thing to be able to capture this great love.  Little guy gave us a fun session with lots of running around and variety.  Oh, the joys of toddlerhood and motherhood!  But I wouldn’t have it any other way…love seeing their little personalities come out.  When parents change expectations and sit back and try to enjoy the session, we end up with great results!

Gorgeous mama to be is pregnant with number 2!  We wanted to both document the belly, and also capture her family before it grows!

Love these big boy smiles!

Belly kisses from big brother are the sweetest!

Big smiles among the almond blossoms!

Sometimes you just need kisses from mommy!  I can’t wait to meet the sweet baby that is due to arrive soon.

Are you expecting?  Would you like to document your growing family in a timeless and classy way?  Please contact me today for a maternity session, birth session, newborn session, or family session.  I would love to meet you and capture the moments that mean the most to you.  Memories that will last a lifetime are worth documenting.  I love to capture all phases of babyhood and childhood!
