Fun family session at Lafayette Reservoir as the season is changing from summer to fall, such beautiful light and family!
Babies don't last long in front of the camera, but I've learned to go with the flow and the best images are them being themselves. I'm always practicing and trying new tricks. The best trick I've found so far is the clear all the stuff from a wall close to a window, open the blinds and let the baby wander and look outside. The clean wall gives that minimalist look and focuses the photo on the baby. Here is a quick 5 minute session with my nephew Connor!
Baby free weekend before baby #2 arrives in the trees and fog of Mendocino. Just love it there. Alex and I hiked, slept, ate, relaxed and tried to resolve the great baby name debate.
One of the reasons I became interested in photography was to have great photos of my family vacations. They are usually a time when we are relaxed and really living. We recently went to Hawaii just the three of is and it was amazing.
Baby Wyatt was so sweet and the perfect sleepy baby for our stress free and relaxed session. In the first few shots, I'm working on my posed newborn photography skills. My experience is with lifestyle family photography, meaning I aim to capture people in their environments and real-life situations. But I also love to challenge myself with poses of these cute little ones. To get the perfect shot is surprisingly very difficult!
My baby turned 1! It's been an exciting year and loved every moment of watching this little girl grow from teeny baby to a soon to be toddler or maybe she's already a toddler? (I can't keep the terms straight!) My camera has been by my side most times to document these milestones. Photo sessions for milestones rather than a specific age capture the exciting time in the babies life and turn out to be pretty exciting photos! Here my baby is slightly older than 12 months but wanted to capture her walking and exploring around:)
