It’s been a long time since I’ve visited Gamble Gardens! As a matter of fact, my last photography session there was just about exactly two years ago. In going back, it was interesting to see how Gamble Gardens has changed. Throughout the year, the blooming flowers, of course, change. I love the diversity the grounds offer in the span of a few months. Yet, time of year aside, as I did my regular walk around the location, I noticed that the willow trees at the back of the property had also gone away. It excites me to see Gamble evolve, but also a little nostalgic for all the families, scenes and memories we’ve captured in that space.

Oh boy did I not prepare for rain this week. Usually I’m all over the weather like a hawk, but having been out of state on a family vacation, I came back only days before last week-end to see rain all through Saturday and Sunday. I lined up my rain chance spots, reached out to everyone and hoped for the best. And it worked! The weather held out for us, and while we didn’t have a “dry all over” kind of day, the rain drops stayed clear and all my families came out. This last session wrapped up at Gamble Gardens too. I’m still blown away how only two weeks time give this place an entirely different feel. Two weeks[…]See more from “Palo Alto, CA Bay Area Photographer: 2012 Mini Sessions, Part V”

I love Gamble Gardens. I do – it’s pretty, it’s quiet and so versatile. It changes season to season by the flowers alone, and in the fall, even gives you a peak into autumn foliage. Well… as much as living in California will afford you 🙂 This event was really special to me, because almost all the families I saw today, were ones I’ve worked with in the past two years. I was there to capture M and H while still hanging in their mommy’s bellies. M on his was to 3, and H turned 1 this summer. Also C and N have gotten bigger. It’s just awesome to see how time has changed us all. My only regret with[…]See more from “Palo Alto, CA Bay Area Photographer: 2012 Mini Sessions, Part IV”

Little I knows how to start a car all by himself. Much to his parents’ shock. Scary AND impressive, all wrapped up in a small 2yr old package… along with silly, and gentle, and mischievous. You know, all the things you’d expect of a 2 year old 🙂 Palo Alto, CA Bay Area child & family photography by Zemya Photography Copyright:Zemya Photography Palo Alto, CA Bay Area child & family photography by Zemya Photography Copyright:Zemya Photography Palo Alto, CA Bay Area child & family photography by Zemya Photography Copyright:Zemya Photography Palo Alto, CA Bay Area child & family photography by Zemya Photography Copyright:Zemya Photography Palo Alto, CA Bay Area child & family photography by Zemya Photography Copyright:Zemya Photography Palo Alto,[…]See more from “Palo Alto, CA Child & Family Photographer: Beep beep!”

Little R is great friends with N, and the last time I saw R was at N’s going away party. I’m still warmed by the bond these two little girls have with each other, living thousands of miles apart, and the effort their mommys make to travel and see each other. That’s true friendship right there, and the picture of R and N hugging by the back-porch is still so prominent in my mind. I was thrilled when R’s mom called me to schedule a time for their family portraits. She said they don’t do this often, and came prepared with a family of helpers. Honestly, if she had never mentioned it, I wouldn’t have guessed because the girls did[…]See more from “Palo Alto Child & Family Photographer: A family portrait”
