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!

San Francisco Bay Area Family Photographer

It’s been a busy fall so far!  I love seeing families year after year as well as meeting new families.  Here is just a taste of what I’ve been up to in the past few weeks!

Are you still wanting pictures of your family this fall?  I do have openings for your family!  Send me a message today and we can get you on the schedule.  If you are not looking for a full session, instead only a few pictures for holiday cards and such, I can offer great discounts for those sessions taking place in Tracy.  If you would like me to travel to you (anywhere around the bay area), I would be happy to do that as well.

I would love to photograph your baby as well!  If you are expecting or just had a newborn I would love to capture those first few days of life in a newborn photo session.  Babies are my specialty, and I love being able to soothe and pose them in a natural, comfortable, and adorable way.  Babies change so much the first year…it’s great to be able to capture those changes every few months, ending with the one year old session complete with a cake smash!  Contact me today for session information.

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.

Livermore CA newborn photographers | 5 day old baby girl

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!
