This family was so lovely! So kind and easy-going. We had so much fun at the cutest little ranch in Cupertino on a beautiful fall afternoon back in October. Take a look:
Each Fall I photograph a ridiculous amount of mini sessions. I adore all of the families I’ve had the honor of photographing so this is my way of trying to make sure I don’t have to turn away as many of those people away since Fall is so busy. It’s exhausting but so worth it. I feel so blessed and lucky each and every year.
This last year I photographed over 70 mini sessions! That’s not even including the regular sessions I shot. Because I photograph so many AMAZING families I leave Fall with a full heart and a hard drive jam-packed with beautiful images. Come the new year I feel so overwhelmed at what to share that I often freeze up and don’t share anything. Well I’m trying my best to break the seal and share some of my favorite mini sessions (that I have permission to share). Here are some from my favorite garden, which was one of the 5 locations I shot at this fall =).
One of my favorite sessions this fall. The mom really knocked it out of the park withe the colors and styling. They make me oh so happy! This family makes me oh so happy too. These girls are just so much fun. Oh and ridiculously adorable!
My doctor’s office is across the street from the most amazing record store, On The Corner Music. All through my pregnancy one of us would take Zack across the street to peruse and pick out a record while we waited for my appointment. Every time I went in there I would dream of doing a photoshoot there but each time I was too chicken to ask the owner. When I was asked by Halcyon Kids to contribute an editorial for one of their issues I knew this would be the perfect kick in the butt to finally ask. The owner could not have been nicer about it and I was able to make it happen. I was thankfully able to get three of my favorite models to join in the fun: Sally and Violet (MDT Agency and Zuri Talent) and Grace (JE Model).
This shoot was so much fun to style! I also enjoyed getting to do a little bit different of an edit than I typically do. Here are some of my personal favorites:
Do you ever write a long message and then realize later that you totally forgot to hit send? I will typically be texting someone back and then one of the kids does something to pull me away. I will think I’ve sent it because I remember writing it but then realize later on that wasn’t the case. Please tell me I’m not the only one! Well, I just realized that this blog post has been sitting in my drafts for months and I totally thought I had posted it. It’s a total crime because it’s one of my favorite sessions ever. I just adore this sweet family!!!
