Maire Family-lifestyle newborn session

This family is near and dear to my heart, because they are MY family! My sweet nephew was born a few weeks ago, and I'm so happy that I was able to meet him at just a day old, and that I'm now close enough to be able to easily visit and hang out with them!

I don't typically do many newborn photos, and when I do it's much more of a lifestyle shoot. Just the family hanging around, enjoying each other. I love capturing these sweet moments with new babies and families!

Alameda Fitness Photo session-Yoga & Dance

I must say, I'm pretty jealous of people that can dance. I've got 2 left feet and mom moves. Mary is an amazing dancer, and also teaches yoga and barre classes. She needed some portraits for social media and promos, so we headed out to Crown Beach in Alameda for a quick session. It was freezing, and really windy, but she was a trooper! The lighting out there right before sunset is amaaaaazing. So happy to call this place home.

Los Altos Hills Engagement Session

When I asked Eyla where her and Marcus wanted to do their engagement session, she new right off the bat that she wanted the photos done at her Nanna's house in Los Altos Hills. She'd spent a lot of time there as a child, and it had a lot of sentimental value, plus the outdoor and rustic feel that they wanted for photos. I had no idea what to expect when I pulled up, but when we went out on the patio, it was an amazing view of oak trees, tall grasses, and rolling hills. Exactly the type of place I love to shoot. Only this time it was the couple asking me to tromp through grass and dirt, so it was nice to have the tables turned for once! We had a lovely time wandering around finding different locations to shoot. Poor Marcus' allergies didn't do so well in the grass, and I ended up with a tick on my leg, but overall it was worth it (at least for me!).
Congrats Eyla and Marcus on your engagement and now wedding! They eloped a month later :)
