madelyn – 1 year session

you might remember that i was flown out to jersey by my friend breanne this spring to photograph madelyn’sfirst birthday festivities. well, i hadn’t had a chance to start sharing the (many) photos from the weekend, but yesterday was breanne’s birthday so this is like a belated birthday present to her 🙂

plenty of photos were taken over that weekend. this is the first of them. i flew into jersey on a red-eye friday morning (great in theory, not so much in reality – i didn’t sleep AT ALL the entire flight. grrr), so after a looooong nap we grabbed some balloons and headed out to the jersey shore. i’d seen another local photog do a shoot out on the boardwalk (an engagement shoot, i believe) and i was dying to do one myself. we don’t get boardwalks like this out in the bay area.  there were plenty of colorful, fun photo opportunities and i had a total blast taking these photos! madelyn is just about the cutest baby EVER. seriously. LOOK AT HER!!! in fact, every other person who passed by us commented on how cute she was. and look at those gorgeous eyes! no photoshopping done whatsoever here – those are all natural, baby!

oh, and to your photog geeks. breanne had a borrowed 50mm 1.2 lens for her camera, so i ended up shooting a few of these on my nikon, and the majority on her canon since that lens is super GODLY. seriously. i have lens envy…and it *almost* makes me want to go canon! that bokeh you get from the 1.2? mmmmmm….it’s BUTTAH! </end photog geek talk>

so anyways. here are the photos!

when i saw this balloon dart game, i knew it would make a PERFECT background for photos. luckily, the girl at the booth was kind enough to let madelyn sit on the counter.

and one of me being a dork because i’m on the jersey shore and it was my first time seeing the atlantic ocean!

speaking of jersey shore…while on a vegas trip last winter, my friends and i kept mocking the show and joked about it. so when i found out i was going not only to jersey, but also the jersey shore, i decided that i was going to find myself a real-life guido/guidette. unfortunately, i didn’t see anyone from the show or anyone resembling any of the characters from it. LOL. boo hiss. the closest i came was a spanish-speaking tourist on the subway in the city who just happened to have that look. oh well.

anyways. thanks madelyn and breanne for a fun afternoon and weekend! stay turned for part 2 (the actual birthday party – breanne did SUCH a fantastic job decorating for it!) and part 3 (day-after shoot). plenty more photos of this cutie to come!

a springy easter session – family portraits – san francisco: golden gate park

spring is finally in the air, so i was so happy to be able to take some cute, springy easter pics for this super adorable family! we headed out to the western end of golden gate park on the most perfect spring day – the weather was warm and perfect, and all the flowers were out blooming. we spent a bit of time over at the queen wilhelmina gardens/windmill, and all the tulips, poppies, and daffodils were out! super pretty!

anyways. i mentioned earlier that this family was super adorable. i had trouble narrowing down my favorites. i think you’ll agree with me 🙂

damien – 9 month session

remember adorable damien? he’s now 9 months! he is still definitely super cute and super chubby. he now crawls everywhere, babbles, and makes sort of a growling sound at everyone. he’s still into yo gabba gabba, and spent half the session glued to the TV, just like last time 🙂 seriously, this kid’s concentration is something to be admired! we had planned on doing the session outdoors, however, the weather was iffy again so we headed to grandma’s house for his sessions, just like last time.

here are some photos showcasing his adorableness.

it was funny because every time i would get in his way, or get too close, he would just move his head so he could continue watching without interruption. LOL!

baby damien – 6 month session

nothing is cuter than a chubby little baby. baby damien was just about the cutest thing EVER!!! those cheeks look so pincheable – too adorable!. aira, his grandma, contacted me to get his 6 month photos done. we did the shoot at grandma’s house on his actual 6 month birthday.

here are my favorites. they make me melt, and i’m sure they’ll make you go “awwwww.”



that dribble of drool – sooooooo cute.

he’s teething, to mom gave him a lolly to chew on…

baby multi-tasking….heee.


look at those eyes!

he’ll be crawling pretty soon!

they dressed damien in a santa suit…he makes a pretty darn cute santa, if i may say so myself.

i just happened to capture this, and it totally cracks me up. so cute! 🙂

this one is my favorite!

thanks aira for letting me capture this stage in damien’s life! looking forward to seeing him at 9 months!
