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!

Nicole and Christian's Engagement Shoot in Sunol

I love seeing couples in love.  I love the beauty of nature.  And I love combining the two into a whimsical engagement session!  Nicole knew that she wanted to take some photos in a creek, which I immediately thought was adorable!  But here in the Bay Area in the middle of a Californian drought, we were unsure of what spots still had water! Luckily we found the perfect nook for the shoot in Sunol Regional Wilderness.  It was just a small section off the Little Yosemite trail, but perfect for what we needed.  It was a refreshing start to the shoot.  A cool dip in the water before heading up the golden hills on one of the hottest days of the year! Christian and Nicole were awesome though.  We literally ran up the steep hills just to catch the last rays of the sun!  Hot and sweaty, yes, but totally worth the views! I can't wait for their wedding next May at Pageo Lavender Farm, a place that is near and dear to my heart since I too got married there!  Hence the lovely lavender sprigs that Nicole brought for the shoot ;-)  Clever!Engagement shoot in Sunol Regional Wilderness in Sunol, CA.
