Saturday, May 21 2016

I love fulfilling photo gifts! G and D bought D’s mom a gift certificate for a family portrait session with me for Christmas. Grandma loved the photos of the kids from the previous fall and was pretty excited to take her own turn. The only trick was aligning the time, because Grandma L lives all the way in beautiful Santa Barbara! As D and G each had business trips to go to last month, Grandma L came up to help with the boys and it was perfect! With the sun setting later in the day, as summer approaches, we met on a Monday evening, after dinner. It was a quick shoot, super close to home. I was actually worried about[…]See more from “San Carlos Family Portrait: Photo Gifts”

San Carlos Child Photographer: A little surprise

Monday, January 11 2016

Over a year ago, a friend of G’s reached out to me with a secret surprise gift for G’s baby shower. I was 1) super excited for G’s new adventure, and 2) really impressed that her friend had been paying attention, and wanted to give her the super thoughtful gift of captured memories with a photographer she likes. G’s family welcomed a baby girl! This San Carlos child photographer has been photographing them since their younger guy was barely walking, and it’s great to see their brood grow. Life gets busy. Plus whenever you add a new person into the family it’s a readjustment for everyone. So even though it had been more than a year that we got this[…]See more from “San Carlos Child Photographer: A little surprise”

These guys were second in line day day of my San Carlos mini session event at North Crestview Park. After I bid good bye to my first family (of that evening), I turned around to see them; and I remember being so struck by how grown up E looked. This is the first time she’s looked like a full on girl. The past two years she still felt like a toddler to me, but this year was the first I felt in the presence of a young girl. Ack! How is this possible? I’m not ready to see them all growing up like this. Aaaand also not quite ready to admit I’m getting older too 🙂 I look back on[…]See more from “San Carlos Mini Session Photographer: So big now”

San Carlos Maternity & Family Photographer: Better late than never

Sunday, December 27 2015

When I photographed P, J and X, little miss E was still snuggled in her mom’s belly and had a full month of baking left on her schedule. Alas, as I’m still making my way through posting all the families I had the privilege of photographing this fall, P’s maternity shots now pale in comparison to the beautiful, angelic face she gets to look at snuggled in her arms. But you know… better late in posting than never 🙂 These guys were the last family in my mini session event at San Carlos’ North Crestview Park. They got lost!!! …. And a bit stuck in wine festival traffic. I feel badly, because for some of the locations I shoot at,[…]See more from “San Carlos Maternity & Family Photographer: Better late than never”

Amongst the midst of fall mini sessions I break for newborn baby photos. When R emailed me in the summer to let me know they were expecting, I was really excited for them. New babies just make me happy: so much love, and promise come with that little package. They’re light (remember I’m living with a five and a seven year old these days, and give piggy back rides more frequently than I care to admit, so a newborn in comparison is a feather-weight), and have tiny little squeaks of a cry. It’s cute! I know that too a newborn mom those cries feel piercing, but to me, being so far removed, they’re cute. Makes me nostalgic. Not so much[…]See more from “San Carlos Baby Photos: A baby break”
