I really love photographing babies, especially sleepy babies:) This cute little babe was so sleepy the whole time which made my job so easy! We were able to get so many adorable shots of her with her big sister and mom and dad! Lifestyle newborn photography is something I have so much love for! There is something so intimate about photographing a family at their own home, with their new, sweet baby. I do a mix of both candid and posed and really strive to bring out the authenticity of the moment. So many adorable shots from this session. Did you happen to catch the sweet moment between their fur… Keep Reading
This family is so dear to me! I have been photographing them since their sweet little daughter turned one and it is an absolute privilege and joy to be able to be apart of documenting their big moments in life. And now they are welcoming a little boy into their family very soon. Cris wanted to photos in their home first and then head out doors. I LOVE indoor lifestyle sessions for so many reasons but mostly because it’s the piece of each person’s life where so many memories are made. Soon they’ll be bringing home a little boy to this home and it will be another memory added to… Keep Reading
It goes without saying that I LOVE shooting in grassy fields! And when I stumbled upon this field of wild flowers, I just HAD to find get some photos in it! For Hailey’s session, we did a mix of both the wild flowers and a few urban shots. We utilized a small brick wall in a commercial complex across the street for some head shots of her which really brought out her gorgeous, blue eyes. I love the outfits that Hailey chose to wear. She wore simple, basic colors and patterns that were textured and fit her in all the right places. We stayed until the sun set because of… Keep Reading
I have a thing for urban shoots. Something about them just brings out so much creativity in me. When Emma asked to shoot her Senior Session downtown Walnut Creek, I was just giddy inside. I love when my clients want to step out and do something different. And this session was just that! Emma’s session was all about movement and simplicity. We walked, laughed, then turned around and walked more. She played with her hair and let it blow in the wind. It was all just magical. I know I am not the only one that has hair envy over here! Isn’t she just stunning!? And I have to mention… Keep Reading
Summer maternity sessions are some of my favorites! The lush greens and golden yellows always make anyone pop and look stunning! This mama-to-be was no exception. Pregnancy looks good on her! We spent the evening at a quaint park near their home, which is special to them because one day they will be bringing their little girl here too. Check out their beautiful photos!
Have I mentioned how much I LOVE Lifestyle Newborn Sessions? Snuggling newborns is one of the many perks of my job. Not only do I get to love on these babies, but meeting their parents is always a joy too. You know those people you just instantly click with? Like you walk in the door and immediately feel at home? This family was just that! Warm, friendly and the best part, SO hilarious and laid back. We all had quite a few laughs which I truly feel played into baby Andrew being relaxed and sleepy. When Kimberly contacted me for newborn photos in Walnut Creek, she mentioned her baby was… Keep Reading
First birthdays are always so special for so many reasons. Usually the sleepless nights and endless diaper changes are becoming less and less, and your sweet, squishy newborn is now growing into an adorable toddler. That first year zooms by so I just love when parents want to close out the first year with a cake smash! Check out cute little Jacob! He rocked his cake smash!
Oh Colette! Full of spunk, sweetness and the most adorable smile! She has so much personality and you can tell where she gets it from: MOM + DAD! You know those families that are just naturals in front of the camera? They almost forget you exist and just do their own thing. This family is just that! I followed them all around this cute little park in San Mateo while they explored, pet puppies and had a little snack. It was the PERFECT 1st birthday session. Happy 1st Birthday Colette! You are adored and loved beyond measure! Be sure to scroll to the last photo… which is my fav!
As I pulled up to Gia + Nate’s modern home, I was instantly greeted by their sweet little two year old, before I could even step out of my car! Talk about a warm welcome! Walking into their home, I immediately felt so comfortable and at ease. Nate served me some fresh, hot coffee and then we embarked on a tour of their gorgeous house. My favorite room – the master suite. Full of natural light and large windows had me giddy inside and SO excited to get started shooting! We spent about an hour inside and then headed to an open field near their home just as the sun was… Keep Reading
Lifestyle newborn photography is a wonderful way to forever preserve the memories of a new baby’s earliest days at home. I love this style so much because the focus is on the everyday life of welcoming the new child into the family. When I chatted with Jelena, she specifically mentioned she wanted a more casual approach to their session. She also mentioned she wanted me to focus mostly on photos of dad + baby. AND she wanted to include her father-in-law as he was in town visiting. Their home in Oakland was full of warm, natural light and so we moved from room to room capturing all the details: baby’s… Keep Reading
