I can't think of things that are much sweeter than watching two new parents fall madly in love with their baby. It's one of the best feelings in the world and being able to witness it again and again is such a treat. I had the pleasure of taking Glory & Issac's maternity photos so I am always so happy when I get to meet the baby behind the bump!

The morning I woke up and read my email from Jen I thought I was still dreaming.

As for style for the shoot, I’m open to ideas and would love to hear how you best love to capture expecting mothers. The shoot would just be me (and if we an get our golden retriever puppy to cooperate for a few shots). I love the idea of elegance. Long white beautiful dress with amazing landscape in the background (symbolic looking trees, etc) and golden lighting.

Long white dress? Golden light? Sweeping landscapes? A PUPPY! Needless to say I was so excited to collaborate with Jen and produce the images she was hoping for. We decided we would venture up Mt. Diablo (she had never been!) and upon my ideas stop at various loactions along the way for pictures. We checked off all her boxes and this is one session I will absolutely treasure, plus getting to know Jen and her husband was a lot of fun too.

She's as nice as she is gorgeous and I hope you enjoy the art we captured! I even convinced her husband to sneak in at the very end ;)

It's no secret that Fresh 48 is my absolute favorite type of session to photograph. The newness, the joy of finally seeing the face you've been dreaming about. The flowers, congratulations cards and all over beaming with pride mom & dad. Being in that hospital room alongside of parents enjoying these moments is such an honor. When my good friends, Renee and Kyle (lovingly nicknamed Yogi) welcomed their third child, I was so happy to be apart of his birthday celebration. He joins two older sisters and has completed his family. Welcome to the world, William! We love you!

One of the best things about welcoming a second baby into your home is witnessing the bond with your first child. How they often (and sometimes not!) surpass your expectations when being around their newest sibling. These two little ladies were just about as sweet as can be and I imagine the bond will only grow stronger in time. Loved spending my morning with this sweet family!

Gabby and I have known each other since our San Diego State University days (Go Aztecs!) and I was so excited to reconnect with her and her beautiful family for some photos. I think this session is one I will cherish for a long time because Cillian is one of the happiest babies I have ever photographed. Each megawatt smile was followed closely by giggles and we all had the best time with him - grandparents included! I'll let the pictures be the proof!
