Kassebaum-Beggan Family

Major. pillow. cheeks.

All I wanted to do as soon I saw baby Etta was squish her her little face. I completely swooned and I couldn’t help it.  From her dreamy blue eyes to her oh so soft wispy hair, she is such a beautiful little creature from head to toe.

But don’t let her gorgeous looks fool you, she is first and foremost a little comedian.  She let me know this with her silly smiles, funny wiggles, and strategically time burps. She’s only 6 months old, but she is destined to be a goofball just like her goofball parents.

Kyle and Hannah were such easy going parents to hang out with. I loved their total commitment to making baby laugh.  From my short time hanging out with them it was easy to see that their home life must be filled with nonstop crazy happy moments.

Aren’t silly people the best people?  Thank you Kassebaum-Beggan Family for letting capture these lovely moments for you.

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 Gordon

This Photoshoot was on a rainy Sunday afternoon, but there was nothing dreary about hanging out with Mama Michelle and Baby Gordon.  Nothing like playing with a cuddly happy little butterball to warm you up on the inside.  Enjoy these lovely moments of motherhood from Michelle and Gordon.

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!

Hello Baby Andre

Dear Baby Andre,

Welcome to the world little man.  Right now all these bright sights and loud sounds are mighty overwhelming–nothing at all like the cozy womb you just left.  But trust me you’re gonna like it here.  How do I know? Well you’ve got some pretty awesome parents to help you along the way. They’ve travelled the world as a pair, now it’s time to do it as a trio. Get ready for a lifetime of gloriously good times and exciting destinations. Adventure is your calling Andre.

Love,

Young
