Amanda & Dan's Fall Mini Session in Los Gatos

In another addition from my fall mini sessions this year, I'm showing off the adorable Amanda and Dan!  I think most people hear fall sessions (be it mini or full shoots) and might immediately think it's only for families.  Not true!  I actually had a few shoots this year with couples and it was awesome.  It's the perfect chance to get some updated pictures of you and your sweetheart for multiple reasons... new prints for your home, fresh profile pictures, feature photos for those holiday cards, or just because!  Even with just 20 minutes, I think we got some really sweet photos from our quick session.  Dan and Amanda seemed like naturals in front of the camera.  Genuine smiles, stolen kisses and loving embraces were just a few of the things I caught in our shoot! So next time I hold mini sessions, don't hesitate to get in touch even if it's just you and your love!

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 ;-)

Fall Mini Session in San Jose

I just love fall.  The colors, the brisk air, the excuse to wear boots and scarves!  Now I have a new favorite thing to add to my list... fall mini sessions!  This was my second year offering them to clients and it turned out to be a hit!  It was such a great way to meet so many new families and their adorable little kids. Hopefully I'll be able to photograph these families for years to come!  First in this week's series of mini sessions, I'm featuring Kate, Mike and Greyson: A fun-loving couple with their sweet little 2 year-old boy.  Greyson was a bit of a tough shell to crack at first, but he sure did love when his daddy threw him up in the air!  We got the timing down just right...throw him a couple times, laugh and giggle and then click! It's always funny how when I put my camera down, the real smiles always come out.  Sometimes I get lucky when we call it a wrap, but then I keep taking shots on the way back to the car. I have my tricks ;-)   Big thanks to Kate for setting up this shoot with me.  Hope to do more with you guys in the new year!

Cooper Family Mini Session

What a TREAT it was to shoot with this lovely family!  For starters, they are adorable!  The little boys, one just under 2 years old and the other 5, were very well behaved and very photogenic.  Their smiles are just precious!  Nate and Diane were nothing but kind and friendly parents, just yearning for a full family photo. I'm glad I could help them out ;-)   I had a great time with them all and could've kept on shooting till the sun went down!  The spot was perfect for a fall shoot.  No real name, just a trail off of Penitencia Creek Road just outside of Alum Rock Park in San Jose.  A hidden gem, if you will.  Enjoy the smiles below and stay tuned for another blog post soon.  Next up: Fall Engagement Shoot at Vasona Lake Park!
