anna and katherine – san francisco child photographer

you may remember these lovely sisters from about a year ago. mom wanted updated portraits, and i was happy to hang out with them again! i had so much fun with these two girls last time – they were giggly, fun, silly…and not to mention, gorgeous! i loved capturing the bond they had with each other – it made me a wee bit jealous, since i’m an only child and i had always wanted a sister growing up. ah, sisterly love. it makes me smile 🙂

we headed out to the presidio and spent some time just walking around the area. i still love this spot so much!

 

silly girls…love it!

i had a fabulous time you girls – thanks! 🙂 keep that sisterly bond strong for life!

 

 

 

maddy + family – san francisco first birthday photographer / san francisco lifestyle family photographer

what a cutie patootie maddy is. mom wanted fun and festive first birthday photos, complete with an adorable tutu and a party hat that lasted all of 2 minutes. we originally wanted to shoot somewhere with a carnival vibe, but we settled for the brazil room at tilden park in berkeley. the stone walls and greenery all around made for a pretty setting – in some of these shots with maddy in her tutu, the building looks almost like a fairy house!

anyhow. like i said earlier, you could not help but comment on how cute maddy is, especially with that birthday tutu of hers. mom also brought along a couple other adorable outfits, which made me super excited. i loved capturing her exploring her surroundings and just run around the area. so cute.

it was the perfect day weather-wise, and the light got lovely towards the end.

tons of faves here!

 

 

blowing kisses with mom…!

 

i looooove this headband!

 

 

what a gorgeous family!! thanks,  guys! 🙂

 

 

 

stefan – first birthday session – san francisco child photographer

remember adorable stefan? he’s now a year old, and as adorable as ever! since the last time i saw him, he’s started walking and it’s become a challenge keeping up with him, but i guess that keeps me young. haha! he’s also completely adorable when he’s running around, so it’s all good 🙂

we did his first birthday photos at home and he really came alive in his everyday surroundings. it was fun to watch him run around the backyard and chase the dog around.

i had too much trouble narrowing down favorites, so i just gave up. lol 🙂

mom had some awesome ideas for styling the shoot, and one of them was getting some leaves to put on the ground to give the photos a fall-like feel…i also asked her to get some pumpkins to add to that autumn flavor. me likey 🙂

 

being adorable with his mama (who, by the way, is gorgeous!)

 

this one made me laugh:

 

 

i LOOOOOOOOOOOOVE his shirt. isn’t it the cutest thing ever?!

 

we did a cake smash 🙂 the cake was so fun and mom had the idea of surrounding it with a bunch of brightly colored silly bandz. i created the banner to add another bit of fun to the look as well!

 

thanks stefan and danielle! you are completely adorable and it was fun to see how you’ve changed and grown in the last few months!!

 

the sheehan family – san francisco family portrait photographer

a sweet family + sunny day + cute little boy = the perfect recipe for great family photos!

i met up with the sheehan family at central park in fremont, which is really lovely. mom was a few weeks away from giving birth to a new addition to the family and wanted to get some photos in of her current family. these guys were super sweet and the little one was such a cutie!! it was a great day – gotta love how it gets warm in the bay area once summer is over. lol.

 

thanks, guys!!

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!

skye – san francisco child photographer – golden gate park

skye is a total cutie! she’ll be competing in a local pageant soon, and needed some photos taken for the event. the cool thing is that the show toddlers and tiaras will be filming the pageant, so you might catch glimpses of her on TV! super cool! skye was a total ham for the camera, and was like a mini supermodel. she knew how to work it – it was so cute!

we headed out to the koret children’s quarter in golden gate park, which is probably the coolest playground ever. we had some fun with lollipops, bubbles, and twirling a ribbon wand. here are some of my favorite shots of skye!

such cuties!

i’m finally getting a chance to sort through my own personal photos for printing, and eventually scrapbooking. i came across these from our family’s annual father’s day picnic from when i was in so-cal last month. the festivities include lots of yummy food, games (water balloon toss, anyone?), endless bingo, a raffle, and lots of quality time spent with family. these two cuties enjoyed hanging out with each other, and i was able to snap a couple shots of them.
