This past Sunday I spent an hour with this handsome 14 month old. He is just so stinkin' cute, I can't stand it. Those eyes, those cheeks! I couldn't stop shooting. He was so happy to be put down in the middle of piles of enormous dry leaves and crawl and explore to his hearts desire. Makes for a pretty good shoot :)
His mom and Dad, Tina and Fredrik. Some of the most relaxed and kind people I've met. I genuinely really really liked them and wished we could spend more time talking, but I didn't want to miss a beat with Kasper. He was on the go and each moment cuter than the next. :) I look forward to shooting with them again someday.
I was so happy to meet this family a couple weeks ago up at Sanborn. Though is was freezing, there was some sun, and every one of them was smiling and happy to be there. Peter & Bria's children, Sadie & Dalia, are just so sweet and darling. Sadie was a so silly, but also a little concerned with my closeness and my camera. I loved that look on her face though. It embodies her experience and wonder. She's 2 and Dalia around 5 months. So smiley!! I had a great time with them.
Another shoot among these beautiful yellow flowers! I truly love kneeling in them to peek through at cuties like Ava, and watching her find her way through them and pick them. Adorable. Ava's mama, Anna, is expecting a boy, so we met here to capture her beauty as she's pregnant with him. She was glowing; so beautiful! Such a cute little family about to grow cuter :)
looking forward to meeting this lucky little baby boy. Congratulations!
I really love Lana. I met her when our babies were actually babies, and felt connected to her immediately. Things were calm at her house and she was inviting and warm, as was her sweet husband, Ed. I'm glad to know them.
It took us a while to pull this shoot together with all the rain this winter, but we finally made it happen at the Saratoga library orchards. (I can't get enough of those yellow flowers :) Ben was in good spirits. Such a good lookin' little guy, and sweet as can be!
Ben loves his mama
Lana & Ed are so natural together. They made it easy for me ;)
This sweet little pooch is getting old and struggling through some health difficulties. I recently had a great shoot with this beautiful family in honor of Yasmine's birthday. Since then, mom realized that they might lose their Pepe soon and have no pictures of the girls with him. Mom and Dad want their girls to remember him if not in their mind's eye, then in a photograph. So, we met up at a local park near their home and Nike (mom) even pulled her oldest out of school. Pepe was shivering and nervous, but warmed up. We got some nice shots to remember him someday. For today he's just getting a lot of love, which is mostly what keeps us all alive anyway.
I can't think of a better way to start off the new year than with this shoot! Erin & Steve Crain: a truly beautiful couple and expecting their first baby later this month. It's a BOY!! And doesn't she carry him well?! She looks stunning.
It was a pleasure to document this unique time in their lives. And special for me to get to know them better as a couple. Just so easy to hang out with. We warmed up after the shoot at the Los Gatos Roasting Company over a tall glass of hot chocolate and got lost in conversation about photography. It's such a gift to share what I know and learn from what others know. These two are entrepreneurs also. Check them out: Steve owns The Cutting Edge: custom cabinetry. Click here to check out his site. Erin is a fabulous interior designer. Click here for her contact info, or come by my house to see some of her work!! :)
I love having them in my life and I can't wait to meet their little guy!!
Oh! And keep checking back to meet thier little man! He'll be on the blog too!
