Just because…

…it made me smile.

We were  checking out parks for my last session and I was doing some test shots.  Jillian had on this totally funky outfit…her choice…you can see big brothers in the background.  This picture just makes me smile. :)

Warning…

…there’s going to be a lot of cute pictures is the post…and I mean a lot! :)  I got the chance to meet Natalie a few days ago and her super sweet parents.  We met up at a park in Alameda, then went over to the beach for some awesome sunset lighting.
Natalie’s mom brought her little radio flyer bike for the shoot:

Fun Fall Leaves

My last session from last weekend was with the Davis family.  We had the perfect sunset lighting and their street is lined with trees that are turning colors right now…an amazing setting!

I had the kids by myself for a little while taking pictures and they were so cute together.  It was neat to see how the older brother really looks after his little sister.

Giannini Family

I had the pleasure of photographing the Giannini family last weekend.  This family is so sweet and giving…not to mention beautiful!  The kids were so cooperative, especially when it came to being photographed together.  I think they’re going to use this one for their Christmas card this year…it’s my personal favorite. :)

Here’s some individual shots of the kids…

I jumped in the car with the Gianninis on the way over to our second location and the kids fell asleep on our way back to their house.  I literally exhausted them!  :)

The Black Family

Cindy’s family is literally spread across the globe, so she wanted to have pictures done when all her children were together.  The Black family is so sweet…they made me miss my own family! 
We went to Greenridge park for pictures and it was so windy, but we made the best of it…getting into position, then waiting for the wind to die down!

Donna + Casey

Donna and Casey were the first for my weekend line-up!  They are getting married November 17 in Rescue, CA.  I’ve never been, but from what they told me about it…it sounds beautiful.  Donna is the sweet mom of my friend Mandy…if you can believe that!  Not only is she gorgeous, she also has amazing taste in shoes…hence this picture:

And do you recognize the chair?  It first appeared when Mandy had Henry. I asked if we could borrow the chair again and thankfully Casey had a big truck and was kind enough to lug it around for me!

These two are so in love…they made it fun to just take pictures of them interacting!

The Donut Shop

Every Saturday morning Brent takes the kids to donuts.  When we are down south there’s a particular donut shop they go to.  The thing I remember most about it is the wall of food posters that are so old and tinted by the sun, they are blue….providing a nice background for this picture. :)

Here are the kids…waiting, waiting, waiting for the donuts…

Finally…sweet reward:

And this series is too cute…I’m loving the tongue, stuck out in concentration.

That’s it for the family posts.  Tomorrow is my calm before the storm.  I have four sessions this weekend…so I’ll have lots to share next week.

Finger Hugs

Brent’s parents live minutes from the beach…
this beach.
Spweb1f_2

So, whenever we’re down, we try to go…like once a day!  I’m not a huge fan of getting dirty and sandy, but it sure it pretty to look at!  So, this time I brought my camera and had fun taking pictures of everyone ELSE getting dirty and sandy.

Nana tells the kids they can get "finger hugs" from the sea anemones…hence the pointed fingers!

Here’s a few of the fam:

Southern CA Sun

We spent last weekend in Southern CA with family.  It was nice relaxing and soaking up the sun…well, there wasn’t a lot of it, but when it came out it was nice!
There were trips to the duck pond, the aquarium and the donut shop…I’ll post more later.
For now, here are a few close ups…

At the end of the session, Mom and Dad let me take the kids to the playground.  I love these candid shots…they actually ended up being some of my favorites overall.
