Family Mini Session in Los Gatos

What a lovely day for fall mini sessions!  It was definitely a hot day, but once I found a patch of shade beneath the beautiful oak trees out at Testarossa Winery, I was set!  I started the day pretty early to fit in as many sessions as possible.  Admittedly, at first I was a tiny bit worried it would be too bright since I'm a sucker for golden hour shots, but once things got going, I was more than happy with the lighting.  Some shade does wonders! Wendy and Kevin came all the way down from South San Francisco with their adorable baby girl for their first set of family photos!  I was super flattered they made the trip down and was pleasantly surprised Hailey was calm as can be.  She looked straight at the camera right off the bat and I knew this session was going to be a breeze!  For only 3 months old, Hailey did fantastic.  It was the perfect amount of time for baby girl and I think the shoot was a success!  Stay tuned for some more photos from other mini sessions that day ;-) 

Packer Family Mini Shoot at Holbrook Palmer Park

When Erin and Aaron first reached out to me looking for photographer for family photos, I was honored!  I mean, I'm ALWAYS flattered when any client asks me to photograph them, but this was even more special to me because they had just moved from Arizona and were in the market for a new photographer.  And if anyone knows, there are SO many photographers in this area and lots with great talent!  They could have contacted any one of them, but I'm so happy they reached out to me! Such a sweet couple and a darling one-year-old baby boy!  And if you're curious like I was, red hair runs in the extended part of the family :-)  I wish I could have spent more time with them, but being that it was a mini session series I had to cut it off and meet the next family (which will be featured tomorrow)!  I think we got some great shots of the happy family of three, although I do hope for many more sessions with them in the future!

Backyard Family Photo Shoot in San Jose

If you know me at all, you know I love kids. Enough to have worked as a tutor for all ages of elementary school, as a preschool aide, and as a nanny for a family of three! I find my experience with young children has been more than helpful when it comes to photo shoots with little ones! I'm no guru, that's for sure, but I know how to let my guard down, have fun and downright be silly in order to get genuine smiles during my shoots. It's not always easy, especially if the kiddos are fussy or really have no desire to take pictures whatsoever, but it's fulfilling when I finally get those true moments when they crack a smile and open up to the camera for me. The best moments are the giggles, the kisses for mommy or daddy and when they are truly just having a good time! Family portrait session at home/backyard in San Jose, CA.

Newborn Baby Blackshire

I have been lucky enough to travel to many countries around the world and see beautiful monuments & artwork, breathtaking landscapes, vibrant oceans and gorgeous sunsets. But even after seeing all these wonderful things, the most amazing thing I've witnessed in my life has to be the birth of my nephew.  The way God designed us mere human beings to create, grow and birth another human life is beyond fascinating to me and is a beautiful reminder of how incredible He is.  I've never seen the birth of a child before in any capacity and I felt truly honored to be by sister's side when she gave birth to her very first baby, Jackson.  She was so strong throughout the labor and pushed like a pro!  I was very proud of her that day and of course still am!  I could go on and on about how amazing it is to see her as a new mom and how much I look up to her, but I'll keep it short and sweet.  :-) The newest member of my family is a ball of joy and is absolutely adorable!  I took a ton of photos of him, naturally, and was so sad to leave him only a week after he was born.  I am so in love with this little guy and I can't wait to visit them again and just stare at his precious face.  I snapped the first photo in the delivery room and the rest of the series is Jackson at just six days old.

Newborn Reese Photo Shoot

Darling baby Reese was only 14 days old and already had an agenda of her own!  She wasn't a big fan of getting her picture taken, being naked or falling asleep, but she was still precious as can be!  Nevertheless, with the help of her parents, we got some adorable shots of her intermittently snoozing away!  With careful balance and gentle touch, we swapped props in and out and changed up the set a bit to add variety.  Between the cute baby beanies and the snuggly stuffed animals, we got some peaceful shots of little Reese at her best. Enjoy the photos! Newborn photo shoot in San Jose, CA.  Photos by Briana Calderon Photography based in the San Francisco Bay Area.

Sip N See Tea Party

I just love my clients!  I had the awesome opportunity to photograph Kalynn's wedding back in July 2012.  Shortly after she got married, she and her new husband got pregnant and almost exactly a year after their wedding, baby Everly was born!  Being away from most her friends and family though, Kalynn didn't get the chance to have her traditional baby shower before she gave birth.  But a party is better late than never!  So with the help of Kalynn's amazing mother, aunt's, and friends, they pulled together this AMAZING tea party in just two weeks!  It was complete with antique china, DIY decor, and vintage items all from family members' homes.  Lovely party, lovely people, and an adorable baby to meet.  Enjoy the pictures!

Noah's Newborn Photos

If anyone has been following my blog, you may remember the maternity shoot I posted a couple months ago with Amanda.  Well, with every successful pregnancy, a healthy baby comes at the end!  Amanda and her husband Julio are now the lucky parents of a beautiful baby boy, Noah.  As I had mentioned before, I've known Amanda my whole life so we're basically sisters, which means I'm practically a new auntie!  Noah is a darling baby and I had so much fun on this shoot, admiring his tiny toes and mini fingers :-) They both are very blessed and I'm so excited for them and what they have in store for their blossoming family.

Little Lianna's Newborn Photos

What a treat it was to photograph newborn baby Lianna. At less than two weeks old, she was a surprisingly easy subject!  She slept nearly the whole shoot, which allowed us to dress her up and play with props!  Her two older brothers got to join us too with loving kisses and helpful hands.  I'm hoping this leads to more newborn photo shoots...spread the word!

Play time!

Part of my life is spent as a photographer and part of my life is spent taking care of three wonderful and beautiful kids.  Last Friday I decided to combine both worlds and have some fun!  Here are the results of some quality playtime out in the backyard with my favorite kiddies. They weren't the least bit camera shy!
