Eileen & Patricio

The siblings enjoyed a lovely Christmas in San Francisco and took in a ton of local attractions- riding across the Golden Gate Bridge, taking a ferry to Alcatraz, ice skating in Union Square- they’ve done more in two weeks than I have in my entire decade in San Francisco! (Note to self: venture outside my usual fav spots) They really hammed it up during our sibling shoot and it was such a blast.

Welcome, Zachary!

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.

Henry, Sam and Betsy ~ San Francisco

One toddler, newborn twin babies, and a doggie. That’s the epitome of chaos, yet Mom and Dad manage everything like it’s no big deal. Feed one, change one, play with big brother Henry. Why did I ever think having one newborn was challenging?

Henry and I had a blast playing with his toys, rolling around on my fur throw and snapping a few pics here and there. Sam and Betsy had no idea they were a part of family photo shoot and slept right through it. Perfect!

Danielle ~ Palace of Fine Arts

It was another chilly morning in San Francisco but a beautiful morning for a family photo shoot at the Palace of Fine Arts. Danielle is such a sweet little toddler and loved exploring all the nooks and crannies at the POFA. I just love her gorgeous curls and precious smile and she just makes me smile.

Elise & Jack ~ Palace of Fine Arts

Since Jack’s newborn photo shoot, he’s grown just a tad. 🙂 Elise was an outgoing chatty two-year-old so nothing has changed much there. And these kiddos are gorgeous not to mention their parents! I love photographing this family (and auntie) for their holiday card fun (note the overalls).

Aidan & Gavin ~ Palace of Fine Arts

Picture this- 40 degrees, strong bitter cold winds and no sun. This was the coldest weather we’ve had in San Francisco yet and the boys were such troopers. They have such a genuine happiness and joy that you can feel when you are around them. Big brother, Aidan’s smile is infectious and he just melts my heart.

Nico, Lucas & Mario ~ Presidio

What a handsome trio of boys and even more important, they are such polite kiddos. Nico and Lucas are so loving with their little brother, Mario and it’s endearing to watch them together. Here’s to a wonderful holiday season and new year for a wonderful family!

Brooks, Teddy & George ~ Baker Beach

What started out as an annual family photo session with a lovely family turned into a National Geographic’s special. We had a pod of dolphins swimming by right off the shore and we ended our shoot with a gorgeous crab which, Baby George wanted to hold and did not understand why we wouldn’t let him. 🙂

I can’t get over how much these boys have grown in a year but also, how much their little personalities have come out and how loving they are to each other. Teddy and Brooks walking down to the water together, wrestling, and just having fun. It’s a blast to see them play and just have fun.

Myles & Brady ~ Palace of Fine Arts

I can’t believe how much little Brady has grown since our newborn photo shoot! Now, he’s trying to keep up with big brother, Myles and they are too cute together. They’re such a joy to be around.

Marcus & Ava ~ Palace of Fine Arts

I have known Marcus and his family since he and my daughter were a mere five weeks old and I think of these kiddos as my own. It was such a pleasure to photograph this beautiful family and in a mere 20-minute-shoot given the blustery winds and 40-degree weather. I look forward to watching them grow up…but not too fast!
