I had the pleasure of holding Xuyen’s maternity photo shoot at Baker Beach and now, I finally meet the little guy! Zachary is all smiles for Mom and Dad and is such a happy baby. What a special first Christmas for sweet Zachary.
I know I say I’m in love with my little peanuts and snuggle bugs but it’s true and Grace is no exception. She was an absolute doll and such a little sweetheart during our photo shoot. Those precious little fingers and toes. We want to remember how little they once were before they start crawling and running all over the place. Congrats, Mom and Dad! You are blessed with a little sweet pea!
Hayden aka Hattie Bear, is all of nine weeks old but oh my goodness, he has the neck strength of a three month old baby! I don’t know where to start- his awesome hair, those cherub lips or his adorable chubby arms and legs. Hayden was such a pleasure to photograph and he has so much personality already. I can’t wait to watch him grow over the next year. Congrats, Mom and Dad on your handsome baby boy!
Look at this sweet snuggle bug! He loved to be bundled up and cozy during our shoot and I love his sweet little features. We even ventured outside for a few quick portraits. Mom and Dad are so thrilled and they have many milestones to enjoy over the coming months.
It was such a pleasure to meet Rocket, Cruz and their parents. Although it was a chilly morning, we ventured out to Aquatic Park and their rooftop deck for a few quick pics in between our adorable newborn portraits. Cruz was an absolute doll and let me photograph him as much as I like. It was such a fun morning! I can’t wait to watch how Rocket and Cruz grow up together and build that brotherly bond.
It is not often I meet San Francisco natives! Erica and Jaime have family two blocks away and boy, will that come in handy in the coming weeks. Baby Leo is such a good-natured little dude and I found myself cuddling him while we tried to get him back to sleep in between poses. He’s going to be a fantastic Lil’ Giants fan and one day, he will grow into that hat Mom and Dad bought him. Precious!!!
I cannot stop smiling when looking at sweet Maya. She smiled about a dozen times during our photo shoot and she’s only two weeks old! Her parents are in for a big treat with this happy little one. And I don’t know about you but I’m ready for some holiday cheer and so is Maya. As my grandma would say, she is as cute as a bug’s ear. (I think she’s even cuter than that!)
It is a beautiful Labor Day weekend and I had the pleasure of photographing precious newborn, Kiyomi and her family. Big brother, Kenzo greeted me at the door and immediately took me in to show me his trucks and toys. Then, we explored his garden where he showered us with smiles and smothered Kiyomi with kisses. To top off a lovely morning, we captured heart-warming portraits of Kiyomi all snuggled up and cozy. And just look at that adorable smile on her face! Awww…melts my heart!
Sweet baby Zach and big brother, Alex were such a joy to photograph. Alex showed me around his local playground which even has a real wall to rock-climb! He is such an adorable little guy and he really started to open up the more we explored the park. Then, we headed home to let Zach snuggle up in a basket for a quick snooze-fest. I’ve got to say, I just love that I get to meet great families like this one and capture a few precious moments of such a special time in their lives.
Twin toddlers and a newborn- I would say Mom and Dad have their hands full! Toddlers Teddy and Bea were great during our photo shoot, playing outside and even taking a few more family photos inside. But when we started on Gus’ newborn portraits, Dad took them to play in the playroom and we captured a hilarious photo of them crying through the glass door. Apparently, they wanted to be a part of Gus’ photo shoot too, haha! I felt like such a mean Mommmy capturing that photo but it was too adorable. Baby Gus is such a rockstar. He slept through most of our session, let us change his outfits and barely made a peep. And look at his gorgeous blue eyes! Such a sweet family and a joy to capture a few precious moments in those beginning weeks!
