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 ;-)

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!

Mini Cooper Shoot in the SF Bay Area

The next installment of fall mini sessions is here!  I got the pleasure of photographing this adorable family last fall and now a year later, I get to see these little boys grow into...taller little boys!  :P  I love their spunk and energy and those cute little faces melt me!  So maybe it was hard for them to sit still, but I just used it as an opportunity for them to run free and play.  Grabbed my telephoto lens and snapped a few quick shots!  I love working with this family.  Nate and Diane are such sweet people and great parents and I can't wait to do more shoots in the coming years with them!Mini family portrait session at Spring Valley Pond in Milpitas, CA.

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!
