Devlin Family | Bay Area Family Photographer

My second (of 6) sessions over Thanksgiving weekend was with the Devlin Family. A few weeks ago, Mitzi sent me an email, letting me know that she and her husband have 5 boys under age 10 and wanted to get some family photos taken before the holidays. I was super excited to work with such a large family (the biggest family I've photographed so far). From the moment I entered their home on Saturday morning, I was welcomed by Annie (the family dog) and five smart, energetic, and incredibly polite boys. They were happy to show me around the yard, and enjoyed getting to pick their own special spots to have their individual shots taken. I shot a few hundred photos, and got a bunch of great family shots (with all 7 Devlins looking at the camera...which is harder than it looks) and some fun ones of the boys individually. 

Big thanks to my friend Becky, for connecting me with this great family! I love referrals! :)

Giammona Family | Bay Area Family Photographer

As some of you know, my cousin Jasmine is hair stylist and make-up artist at Dustin David Salon in Los Gatos. Over the years, I've referred many of my friends and co-workers to her with confidence, as her work speaks for itself. As I begin my journey of starting my own business, Jasmine (and her husband, Navid) have been incredibly helpful and have already sent me a few referrals. I can only hope that my work speaks for itself someday, like Jasmine's does. 

I share this story because Heidi got my contact information from Jasmine (she gets her hair done by Jasmine, too)! Last Friday, I was lucky enough to meet Heidi and her sweet family at The Sainte Claire Hotel in Downtown San Jose. We got some great family photos. I hope I did a good job documenting this family of 3, as they prepare to become a family of 4 in January! 

The best part...Jasmine and Navid got married at The Sainte Claire 2 months ago, and Heidi and her husband had their wedding reception there few years ago! How cool is that?

Beeman Family | Bay Area Family Photographer

Alaina and Mark welcomed little Walker into this world back in August. I was lucky enough to take some photos of them together in their home, just in time for the holidays. Walker is an adorable baby boy with big bright eyes and squeezable cheeks. Here are a few shots from our session this morning.

McMahon Family | Bay Area Family Photographer

I'm back from India, and excited to have more families to photograph! On Saturday, I met with Sabrina & Brian (and their adorable little girls). The weather was against us (it rained all day), so we shot inside. The girls had fun showing me all of their stuffed animals while running around the living room. I tried my best to catch every smile they threw my way. Here are a few shots from afternoon session.

Emily & Jon: Maternity Shoot

When my good friend, Claire, asked if I would be interested in taking maternity portraits for her sister Emily, I jumped at the chance! I've never taken maternity photos before, so I was eager to gain the experience. I have Emily & Jon to thank for being so easy to work with, and (as always) so fun to be around!  I think we got some really great shots...successfully documenting this very exciting time in their lives. Baby Boy is due in December...I can't wait to meet him.
