When S came to get me at her condo’s entryway she gave me a big hug; and I just knew the next few hours we’d spend together would be great. Her biggest little guy was just as friendly. I’m working on my Spanish here, and as I was giving him some suggestions to go hug his grammie and auntie he was running over to give me hugs. How can you not love these guys? You may remember them from a few months back. I thoroughly enjoyed photographing S’ maternity session, and now meeting their littlest little guy was just as awesome. Congrats to you all!
It’s pretty awesome watching little guys grow up. I met S last year, on a very wet and rainy day. Despite the rain, he was your typical happy, energetic 2-year old. He continues to be a happy, energetic 3-year old ;p One thing that is striking about him, is how incredibly polite he is. Really! I was very impressed with his care and attention toward his mama.You’ve got one special little guy there, R&J!
Before setting up a session with any new client, I like to have a conversation over the phone. It’s a great way for me to hear what’s important to them, and how they hope to capture this moment in time. S and A are friends, and we share a love for jumping out of planes, but despite that it was great to have that conversation, because amongst everything else they told me, one word stood out: Fun!

From the lush trees, to the awesome wall colors: and there are places I[…]See more from “Santa Clara Maternity Photographer: Fun”
This is the time of year when the majority of my sessions are about family portraits intended for those year-end greetings. And occasionally, a gift for the matriarch (or patriarchs) of the family. This type of gift was just what A was thinking, so a group of 3 siblings and their associated brood showed up to pose for grand-ma. I won’t lie, working with large groups can be hard. Actually I think I’m most challenged when working with groups larger than, say 5ish. But these guys were awesome. We took care of their most important photo in a matter of minutes, and the kids were off to the races. Speaking of kids, all 6 of these guys were awesome. Now…[…]See more from “Santa Clara, CA Family Photographer: Gifts”
I gotta tell you, there’s something pretty amazing about the determination of an early walker. Big feet, trippy shoes, uneven pavement and grass are no match for a toddler. Observing these little people’s drive to get to where they’re going is pretty remarkable, inspirational… and stinkin’ cute. Happy 1st Birtday, Little N! I loved spending my afternoon with you.
