Danville Family Portraits: mini session: Y-C Family




This was my 3rd time photographing the Y-C Family for their Holiday portraits and big A really tapped into his inner modeling skills this time!:)Most young kids aren’t too excited about taking pictures for 30 minutes (um, especially when they walk by a cool playground that they’re dying to play on!) so what’s a photographer to do? I get them moving, including the parents. We do a lot of running, jumping, spinning, and I know the parents get a good arm workout too!  I mean, what kid wants to stay still and say cheese? See 2012 amd 2011 sessions.

Pumpkin Patch 2014

Going to Moore’s pumpkin patch is one of our favorite family traditions. We love coming back to the same place every year and seeing how much the kids have grown (they have a growth chart we take a picture with every year) and what they have outgrown as well. My baby E looked forward to the train ride every year since she was 1, but this year she told me, “I think the train ride is too babyish.” What???!! Sigh…I have to accept that she is growing up. I mean, look at that leg pose! She’s got that Angelina Jolie leg pose down perfect! A and K usually complain that I take too many pictures but this year they were ok with it and actually seemed to have some fun with it! Or maybe that’s just wishful thinking.:)

Los Gatos Family Portraits: F Family



Happy Feet came along for the portrait session! We were looking for fish for him to eat but the creek was all dried up so we resorted to feeding him rocks instead.  :)I love the yearly portrait sessions with the F Family. The kids have been doing this for many years and I was pleasantly surprised when K started directing me with the poses she wanted to do (take a picture of me pointing to the creek!). She is growing into such a beautiful little lady. I remember when she was a baby and now she’s so big!! Ok…now I feel really old.  Little T got just as dressed up as his big sis. Who says little boys can’t be comfortable wearing a tie? He rocked that faux necktie like no one else!
