When Kim initially reached out to me asking for portraits of her daughter and son, she said they might bring their puppy too for the shoot. Don't get me wrong, I LOVE dogs, especially puppies, but on a photo shoot they are often unpredictable and you never know if they're going to listen when you call them or give them a command. This wasn't the case with sweet little Cooper. He was the cutest pup! Seriously, looked like a teddy bear and felt even softer than one! He even looked at the camera when you called him; it was perfect! Having only had him for a week, Karly was definitely in love and couldn't resist his snuggles. Who could blame her? I wanted to cuddle with him too! We grabbed a few photos of just Karly and her brother Chad too, but ended the shoot with the whole family...Cooper included. Enjoy the cuteness below!

In the final set of images from my mini shoots this year, I've got another darling family of three with SUCH a cute little one year old girl! Emily was so stinkin' adorable, I could have photographed her all evening! She was a mover and shaker and loved my dinosaur friend from Shutter Huggers. She mostly wanted grab it off my lens and play with it though, haha! I had a wonderful time with the Smolen family and just kept shooting till we lost our last bit of sun behind the horizon. I met so many friendly, fun and loving families this year and I'm so grateful to have made new connections with them all. I'm definitely looking forward to next year's round of mini shoots! Follow my blog to be the first to find out when they'll be!
Here's my second session of the week that I shot at Holbrook Palmer Park! Such a cute family with the sweetest little girls. I can tell Addy is a great big sister already to her 6 month-old sister Emily. It was darling watching her try to get her to smile for the photos, even though baby Emily seemed a little camera shy. I love big sisters, since I have two amazing ones of my own! Both of them had such beautiful blue eyes and blonde, blonde hair. Darling girls and I hope I get to photograph them more over the years as they grow up. It was another quick session, but full of giggles and big smiles. Glad I had the opportunity to meet another wonderful family during the holiday season. Big thanks to the Hughes family for connecting us!
I love this family and always have a fun time shooting with the kiddos. This year, with their new addition, we were able to snap the first family portrait...and we even got one with everyone looking! Not gonna lie, getting all three kids to smile and look was a task. Nevertheless, I think these pictures capture their true personality of kids just being kids! Enjoy the photos from our shoot at Spring Valley Pond in Milpitas!
