I feel really fortunate to get a chance to meet with this little dude every few months and see how he’s changed. He’s holding himself so much sturdier, and he is F.A.S.T! He really had me working my focus button, that’s for sure!Over our last few sessions, I’ve gotten to meet some extended family too, which has been great. In our last session, little Q was joined by his cousin E, who’s visiting from the U.K. Poor little E got a cold on her flight out, but she was a trooper and really hung in there for a few portraits with her big cousin. Happy Holidays to you guys! I’m excited about what the next year will bring, and all[…]See more from “Palo Alto, CA Bay Area Photographer: Big cousin Q”

So… I think I found a good way to get a toddler in the same shot as his parents. Have them kiss. Worked like a charm for R. Whenever his parents got the smooches on, he would run over for an inspection. Man, if this worked for all my shoots, I will have to instigate a full on kissing policy. I last saw R a few months ago, and was so surprised to see how much he’d grown. He’s taller (no duh), but also is now so much more a little boy than a toddler. What is going on here? How did that happen? Zemya Photography is a natural light photographer, based on the Bay Area Peninsula, and specializes in[…]See more from “No Kissing!!!: Palo Alto Children’s Photographer”

When I was little I longed for an older brother. Being the eldest, this was obviously a tall order. Alas, I was not born in a soap opera family, so no long lost older brothers came to call, and I got quite used to my younger sister.However, it was days like today that made me remember why the idea of older brothers seemed like so much fun. C got lucky. She has not one, but 2 of them. Yeah, yeah, I’m sure it made for some interesting taunts as a kid, but look at them now! They’re so much fun around each other and it’s contagious. Look at those smiles! I didn’t even have to bribe them with jelly-beans to[…]See more from “Smiles: Palo Alto Family Photographer”
