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

Hendricks Family Welcomes Baby Klay

Guys it’s been such a loooooong while since I’ve done a photoshoot.  Chasing around my beautiful crazy toddler leaves little desire for anything but wine and naps.  But theres no better way to snap out of this funk than to photograph a crazy beautiful family.

Meet the Hendricks family: Mike, Krystle, Khloe, Keith and 2 week old baby Klay.  Hanging out with this family of 3 kids gave me fond memories of childhood as one of 3 sibling.  There was never a dull day growing up for me and I can imagine that there’s never a dull day in the Hendricks household.  From chatting with 4 year old Khloe about her Barbie collection, watching Mike and Keith play fight, and watching the tender moments between Krystle and baby Klay, it was easy to see that this family is full of joy and life.

Congratulations on beautiful Klay and best of luck as a clan of 5! Thanks for welcoming me in your home and letting me capture these sweet moments. And thanks for the cheesy nacho (nacho not nachos because I only took one but wish I took more! )

Julina and Lloyd Maternity at Home Session

Last Saturday I had so much fun photographing this cozy casual in home maternity session.   Meet Julina and Lloyd.  These highschool sweethearts fell in love 14 years ago and woke up one morning last year and decided to tie the knot that same day.  It’s been just the two of them for so long, but not for much longer.  In just a few weeks this awesome twosome is going to become a family with the addition of a cute Vietnapino/Flipnamese baby boy.  Check out the beautiful photos!
