Sneak peek for M Family {Menlo Park Family Photographer}




Little miss S has grown up. I took her holiday portraits last season and she wasn’t walking yet.  I remember trying to keep up with her crawling all over the wet grass though! One thing that has stayed the same? Her smile! Love that she is still so smiley. And those eyes! Yes, I can go on and on about her. Beautiful.

Thank you C family for being flexible and changing locations last minute when we couldn’t go to the original spot (like 10 minutes before our session!).  I always look forward to photographing the C sisters – they are always relaxed and ready to be in front of the camera. The camera loves them! Mom let them choose their own outfits – didn’t they do a fantastic job? I asked the girls where they bought their clothes and they said, “on the computer.”:)So cute!

This future musician (yes, he chose the guitar!) celebrated his first birthday with balloons and bubbles and lots of love from his family and friends. He even made a small speech in front of all the guests! Happy birthday little E!

Sneak Peek for C Family {Fremont Family Photographer}

3 posts in one day? That means only one thing – it’s Holiday season! I have done photo shoots at this park for the last 5 years and this was the first year where there were tons of other photographers with their clients all around the red barn. I found my little 10 ft of space and claimed it!:) November is the busiest month for portrait photographers. I really can’t complain. I get to meet so many families each year and even when shooting in locations where I’ve shot before, every photo session ends up being unique and special for different reasons. The C family was so nice to work with and the boys made everything so easy for me!  Grandparents came along too for some portraits with the grandsons – loved the pop of color with the red sweater and red shoes!

Happy 4th birthday

Happy Veterans Day and Happy 4th birthday to my little E! She has been waiting for this day for a long time. 2 of her cousins plus her grandma’s birthdays are all on the same week as hers and as we celebrated each one she kept saying, “Now is it MY birthday??” Today is finally her special day. She woke up extra early and came into my room and showed me how she was going to blow out her candles. She has been practicing! Love my little E who still loves pink and Hello Kitty.
