A Beautiful Girl in the City

This lovely lady was born with some seriously cool parents.  They did a joint maternity with me at my studio and then at Baker Beach before she was born, and when they arrived with her they were super chill and way more put together than I had been as a new parent.  At press time they had already taken her on her first trip to New Zealand, and Germany (where Mom is from) is likely not far behind.  She's going to be a world traveler for sure! Enjoy this beautiful family and their fabulous girl! Ready to book your session?  Click here and let's chat!   

A Dream Finally Come True

This little lady was dreamed about for a long time.  Mom and Dad are an amazing, long-term couple who decided it was time to expand their family together.  Mom was calm, cool and collected and Dad was head over heels for both of his girls.  It was so fun to see them all together - lots of love, laughter, and joy at the studio. Having a daughter myself I know the fun that little girls bring.  I am so excited for this family to get to experience it too!  Enjoy here - she's perfection! Ready to book your session?  Click here and let's chat! 

Sweet Sisters

I met this gorgeous family when I did a shoot for a beautiful children's line a few years back. That morphed into a fun Halloween shoot (big sister was the best Marilyn Monroe!) and then family portraits last year. Little did I know when we did the family portraits they were expecting a new little girl and that I would get to meet her. Most of my clients end up deciding to come to the studio for portraits, but since this family had relocated to Woodside, I happily came to them at their beautiful house in the countryside to capture those first images of their new baby girl. Big sister was immensely proud and she was so helpful with soothing, picking outfits and snuggling. Both of these girls look like little china dolls so the whole shoot was amazing! Ready to book your session? Click here and let's chat! 

A Little Princess

I met this little sweetheart's Mom awhile back when she purchased a gift certificate for her best friend to get newborn photos done for her own daughter. Fast forward a year later and she was expecting her own little princess and wanted me to do the same for her. Yay! This baby girl was so calm and sweet, and even though big brother wasn't totally interested in having his picture taken, we did get to capture him showing his baby sister some love! :) This is such a fleeting time in your life. They will be big kids before you know it! Ready to book your session? Click here and let's chat! 

A baby plan member grows up!

This is Riley! I was lucky enough to not only do hew newborn photos (you can check out that post here), but also a super fun maternity shoot with her super cool parents AND her fur big sister Natty. Ms Riley turned 6 months old and started sitting up by herself, and since she's a baby plan member, to celebrate this momentous milestone we had a photoshoot! Yay! One thing you will notice immediately about Riley is she is probably the very best dressed grill in the Marina, if not the entirerty of San Francisco! I loved her greys and pinks, and that sweet smile is enough to brighten any room she's in. She was a little unsure at first when she got there, but once Daddy started making silly sounds and faces for her, she was good to go. NOTHING gives me more happiness than getting to see my newborns grow up to be big kids. I can't wait to see this little lady for her 1 year! Go RILEY! Ready to book your session? Click here and let's chat! 

Baby Girl in her Mother's Veil

This beautiful baby girl was originally scheduled to be an on location session. Mama had a really hard labor and birth and they weren't sure she had it in her to make the trip from Alameda to Cow Hollow. The day we had scheduled, there happened to be a HUGE accident and back up on the Bay Bridge, and they were nice enough to call me and not only postpone so I didn't get caught up in it, but decided to come to me at the studio the next day. There were so many amazing parts of this session. For one, parents were super cool. You'd never know they were first timers! Two, she was just one of the most classically beautiful babies I think I have ever seen. Her little lips, nose, eyes, etc! Too much cute! And lastly, her Mom had a few super cute ideas to do in time together. She was an October baby so they bought her the cutest little candy corn hat which I bought some orange stretch fabric to go with at my local fabric store. Orange isn't in my normal pallet, but it was so cute in this setup. She also brought her bridal veil and we used that in tandem with my ivory flokati rug for some beautiful, light filled "glamour" shots. I loved the images so much I ran out and bought myself some ivory lace to use in upcoming sessions as well. The results were feminine and dainty, but also filled with meaning and tradition. Doesn't get much better than that! I am so looking forward to ...

Meet my current cover girl!

If you have been on my website lately, then you have likely seen this girl as the main photo on my cover page. Not only was she just a gorgeous baby, she was SO good throughout our December shoot and let us get through so many different setups with her. Her hair was glorious and I just fell in love with her pouty little lips too. I loved her gallery so much that not only is she featured on the website, but you can also see her and her sweet parents on canvas in my studio too! I have a special place in my heart for baby girls (having one myself I know how awesome they are) but this girl made my job SO easy. I will always look back on her session and smile. Ready to book your session? Click here and let's chat! :) 

Riley + her fur sister Natty!

This post was LONG overdue! I actually just shot this sweethearts 6-month photos a month ago! But when I went to blog her 6-month session (she's a baby plan member!) I realized that I had never blogged her newborn session which I absolutely loved! So here she is! Ms. Riley in all her cuteness. When her parents reached out to me, they mentioned that their first born Nattie was getting on in years and had cancer. :( They really wanted to include her in the session so that Riley would be able to have something to remember her first friend by. I am a total dog lover (seriously...if we could have them in our apartment I would have 10 pups) so a day where I can snuggle babies AND hang out with a pup is the best day ever. Natty wasn't quite as sure about the photography part but she was a good sport. And she got lots of love and scratches for her efforts. I just adore this family and I'm so excited to watch Riley grow and thrive over the years! Keep your eyes out for her 6-month session later but until then, enjoy a peek at baby Riley! Ready to book your session? Click here and let's chat! 

Sweet little lady and a bounty of blankies!

I am SO behind on blogging. During the busy season of the fall I totally dropped the ball on doing it and January through March was surprisingly busy too with a photography retreat + lot's of beautiful babies. Prepare yourself for lot's of awesome as I try my best to get caught up sharing some of them with you over the next few weeks. :) Speaking of awesome - this family certainly qualifies. Talk about a loved baby! This little lady had 4 beautiful blankets knitted for her that we incorporated in to her session. Mom and Dad were super cool, and really had this whole parenting thing down already. I especially loved Mom in her cream, neutral top and a splash of color with her cool scarf, and the look on Dad's face when he held his baby girl made me swoon! There is nothing more precious than those first few weeks with your new baby, and all those sweet little details change so quickly. I loved being able to document them for this beautiful family! Ready to schedule your own session? Contact me now and let's chat! 

Smiley 6 months old + big brother

I so love sitters! That magical time where babies can sit up by themselves but aren't crawling yet and are generally super smiley. Even better is when they have handsome big brothers that are pros at having their picture taken too!
