Atanque Family

Can’t believe I’ve known this guy for over 20 years!  He’s one of my elementary school buds and actually one of my very first photo shoot victims from the early 2000s.  Somewhere in my attic are black and white prints of this guy from when I was a total noob at photography.  I think the photo shoot went something like this: “Hey Hannibal can you climb into this tree and do a Calvin Klein pose.” Seriously I had no idea what I was doing back then–in photography and life (but I digress.)

Well fast forward to 2016 and things are coming full circle as I get a chance to photograph Hannibal once again.  This time he brought his beautiful wife Lily and their super sweet preschooler Clara. We had a blast roaming Ardenwood farms and making friend with the goats and sheep.  No CK posing this time. Just genuine smiles, hugs, and laughter as the Atanque family showed me how connected they are. I adored photographing their little family and seeing all the love.

Thanks Atanque Family for the fun Sunday at the farm.  Check out the photos below!

Baby Dresden

Just look at this deliciousness that is baby Dresden. He is 2 months old and is just as cuddly as he looks.  My goodness gracious that is a face you just want to kiss all day.

Lily at the Pumpkin Patch

A lovely day down at the farm with my little Snow White.

Family Maternity Session at Garin Park

It was supposed to be a peaceful maternity photoshoot in a serene park setting.

Nope.

I just happened to schedule the shoot during the same time as a youth running relay event.  300 unexpected guest at this photoshoot.   Kids running laps.  Dogs sniffing around.  Parents with coolers.  Lawnchairs everywhere.  Plus all the locations I wanted to shoot at were roped off for the relay race.  There was hardly a spot without an unwanted person in my way.

Things didn’t go as planned.  Luckily for me I was working with a very cool bunch of people.  Ivette, Alan and their three beautiful children had no problem with the crowd.   I guess when you have a big happy family, it feels quite natural to be surround by just a few hundred more.  So we made it work.

Thank you Ivette and family for hanging out with me and allowing me to capture your last moments as a family of 5. I wish you the best as a family of 6!

Ice Cream Date With My Mini Me

Sometimes I give the camera to my husband. And sometimes he manages to get a few photos in focus.  =)

Found the cutest polka dot Minnie Mouse toddler outfit for 2 dollars at a thrift store which matched perfectly with my favorite red polka dot dress.  And then I knew this photoshoot had to happen.
