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! 🙂

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!
san francisco child photographer san francisco children's photographer san francisco baby photographer san francisco child photography san francisco first birthday photographer san francisco birthday party photographer san francisco birthday party photographer

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!

stefan – 9-month session – UC berkeley

is there anything cuter than a giggly, smiley baby?! i think not! well, stefan was one of those and he just made me melt. he made me melt once again and go “awwww” at every single photo as i was going through and editing these images. is he not completely ADORABLE?! seriously. at this stage in his life, stefan is highly amused by peek-a-boo and his mom’s blackberry.

here are some favorites from his session at UC berkeley.

thanks, stefan! you are suuuuuuuper adorable! 🙂

new york, i love you – personal

recently, i was flown out to jersey by my friend breanne to photograph her adorable one-year-old’s birthday celebration 🙂 those photos are too cute for words, and will be included in another post in the very near future, but in between all the photo-taking and birthday festivities, i was able to spend a day in new york city.

before discovering a passion for photography and design, my life goal was to work in magazine publishing and live in NYC. in fact, my friend elaine and i used to joke that we would move to NYC together, and while she was bringing in the big bucks as a hotshot lawyer, she would have to cover my portion of our outrageous NYC rent in exchange for me bringing her some clothes from the fashion closet at my under-paying magazine job. this was my first time in the city, and i have to say that i LOVED it. i still wouldn’t mind living there, although i love san francisco and wouldn’t complain if i lived here the rest of my life.

we spent about 10 hours in the city, and we crammed a LOT in. there was still not enough time to fit everything i wanted to do in, but we sure got a ton in…we should deserve some sort of award for that 🙂

NYC was like sensory overload for me – lots to see everywhere i went! it made my camera VERY happy, and i wanted to share some of those shots here…

i wanted to get a cabs in a row shot. this wasn’t quite what i was going for,  but i like it.

i thought these onesies were super cute 🙂

glimpse of the empire state building. we didn’t actually go there, but it’s definitely on the list for next time. among lots of other things.

madison square garden clocktower.

springtime in NYC = lovely 🙂

we went on the staten island ferry. not that i actually wanted to see staten island…

…but i wanted to see the statue of liberty without actually going there, and this awesome view of the manhattan skyline doesn’t hut 🙂

we spent a lot of time on the subways! san franisco may have good public transportation, but it’s got NOTHING on the NY subway system. the one thing that SF does have on NYC though, is that it’s more accessible…climbing up and down stairs to get in and out of subway stations with a stroller = not fun.

the upper east side…brought out the gossip girl nerd in me, lol.

central park! i was curious to see how it compares to golden gate park out here…it’s a lot more lush. golden gate park has a woodsier feel. both are beautiful, though 🙂

everything was in bloom and just PRETTY. it was a perfect day, and spring is just a fabulous time to be in NYC…

i saw candice stringham take a bunch of awesome photos out by these arches, and was curious about them, but had no idea where they were. luckily, the one place we chose to go to in the park was were they were at. hooray! it’s right near betheseda fountain.

rockefeller center – radio city music hall and 30 rock!

times square.

i took this photo, and hailed a cab at the exact same time. i’m awesome 🙂 this ended up being one of my favorite shots of the day, too!

we got a lot done with baby in tow –

see, she’s super adorable. you will see lots of cuuuuute photos coming up on this blog very soon! 🙂 stay tuned.

we got lots done in one day, but i still didn’t get around to stuff i had on my list. there were also a bunch of things i wanted to see but knew i wouldn’t have time for, like the met. i hope to take a longer trip into NYC sometime soon! i can’t wait to be back!

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 🙂

i love that they brought props – including some eastery balloons, which were my fave 🙂

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.

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!
