I had the wonderful opportunity of photographing Teresa and Mat’s newborn baby girl, Baby L.
Baby L is a very special baby for so many reasons. For one, she could not wait to meet her parents so she came a little early. In fact, today would have been her birthday! Happy Would-Have-Been-Your-Birthday, Baby L!
Considering how amazing her parents are, it’s no wonder Baby L wanted to see them as soon as she could. This is Mat and Teresa on their wedding day over 2 years ago.
Coming early clearly has its advantages.
More time together.
More time to have your toes tickled and smooched.
More time to be held and loved and cuddled.
Baby L is one smart cookie.
Those first few newborn days are so full of love, excitement, amazement, exhaustion, emotion, craziness… but worth remembering every single moment.
Teresa and Mat, thank you for allowing me to photograph Baby L! She is so beautiful and I am so happy for you both.
A while back, I met Annie and Bryson through some mutual friends.
Fast-forward a couple of years and Annie, our mutual friend, Andrea, and I found ourselves all pregnant… and then, fast-forward a few months, we were all new mommies!
We would meet up at one of our houses, nurse our little babies, change multiple diapers, and just talk to eachother. When I think back on those first few months of motherhood, I think about Annie and Andrea… because they were kind of my touchstones.
Annie and Bryson are really cool parents. Annie is totally artistic and crafty. Bryson surfs and skateboards. Seriously… they are like the hip parents I take notes from.
So, being the cool cats they are, I was so excited and honored when they asked me to take newborn photographs of their newest addition, Baby W!
Baby W was the dreamiest baby… like, literally. He slept the entire time and probably kept his parents up all night (sorry guys!) But… look at his little face!
Big brother Nico was enamored with him as well.
I can already see these two being best buds and getting into all kinds of high jinks together.
Annie, Bryson, Nico, and Baby W… thank you for allowing me to take these photographs of you!
Agnes and I have known each other since our college days at UCLA. If I remember correctly, she was one of those students who had everything together. I, on the other hand…
Anyway, we both ended up here in the Bay Area and recently reconnected!
A few weeks ago, I had the pleasure of meeting Agnes’ husband, Michael, and their little guy, Baby T.
It was Baby T’s 100th day and, like most babies 100 days old, he celebrated with some milk… and a photo session of course!
Baby T has amazing hair. It looks like fire.
I love photographing babies and families.
But photographing a friend I knew before she was a wife and mother…. with her husband and her baby boy… there’s something very magical about it.
We may have tired out Baby T and his adorable cheeks.
Agnes, it was so wonderful to see you after all these years! Thank you for allowing me to capture these moments of your lovely family.
I was so excited when my sister-in-law contacted me about taking her family photographs for Christmas!
Here are a couple of my favorites…
Amy, thank you so much for allowing me this opportunity to photograph your lovely family!
I was delighted to photograph this little sweetheart today!
More to come…
