Baby M - Los Gatos Newborn Portrait Photography (Sneak Peek)

I had the privilege of photographing Baby M for her newborn portrait session. Los Gatos San Jose San Francisco Bay Area Newborn Portrait Photographer Newborn Baby Photography Hollister Portraiture

She was just the sleepiest sweetest little baby.  I'm pretty sure that Baby M poses for oil paintings when not posing for newborn portrait sessions.  That's my theory, anyway.

Happy Father's Day

Thinking of all my awesome dad clients today, who have dressed up, entertained older siblings, offered to help me move my equipment, or just patiently hung out while I focused on mommy and baby.

Megan and John - Southern California Maternity Portrait Photography (Sneak Peek)

I met John and Megan at the beach to celebrate the impending arrival of their baby boy. I randomly asked them to look "Vogue" and this is what they did.

Here is to one of the cutest and vogue-iest (it's a word, probably) couples I know.  Can't wait to meet Baby S!

I often wonder what babies think and dream about.

I bet Baby G was dreaming about his parents... or his cat siblings.  Baby G was and still is the smileyest baby I have ever met... it could be a word!

Photographing newborn babies brings me so much joy.   I love their tiny eyelashes and pouty lips.

Is there anything better?

Emily and Eric, thank you for allowing me to photograph your newborn baby boy!

Baby E - Los Gatos Newborn Portrait Photography Session

Baby E was in the studio for her newborn portrait session.  San Jose Los Gatos Willow Glen Newborn Baby Portrait Photography San Francisco Bay Area Baby Girl (1) She was such a beautiful newborn baby and was most content when held in her parents' arms.  Snug as a bug in a rug.

This image of Tom always makes my heart smile.  At Liz's maternity portrait session, Liz and Tom specifically indicated to me that they did not want any kissing pictures.  But, of course, Baby E was just too irresistible!

I absolutely love mother and daughter images.  There is nothing more beautiful.

I think Baby E has her mama's sweet smile.

Tom and Liz, thank you so much for allowing me to photograph your sweet baby girl!

Emily and Eric - Monterey Maternity Portrait Photography Session

I met Emily during our first year of law school.  In those 3 years, we went through a lot together (I was going to list some of those things, but I'm still slightly too traumatized to talk about it). Emily is good peeps.  She is perpetually happy and encouraging and beautiful, inside and out.  Seriously.  She's super smart... and she's gorgeous.  Like, just look at her.

But she has a goofy, geeky side too... which probably explains why we are friends.

We attended eachother's weddings and I am honored that she chose me to photograph her maternity portraits.

We met up on the gorgeous, sunny (was it windy?) beaches of Monterey.  The timing was perfect.  I found her and Eric, just strolling along the path as the sun set behind them.  How lucky is that?

Eric and Emily are the perfect match.  I am so happy to know both of them.

Emily and Eric, thank you for trusting me to photograph you during this exciting time in your lives.  But more importantly, thank you, Emily, for being such a good friend throughout all of these years!
