Winter family portrait session

I hope everyone had a great holiday season. I know I did! I stayed busy shooting tons of families and events as well as enjoying time with my own family. I might even share a few images with you all if you are interested in seeing some of my own shenanigans.  But first I am sharing this winter family portrait session.

I was excited to meet up with Carrie & Rob and meet their kids who I have heard so much about over the years.  Carrie and I are old high school friends from Notre Dame High School, and through social media and happy hours we have stayed in touch.

We met up at Quicksilver park and hung out a bit to capture some awesome portraits all while making sure her boys had as much fun as they could hanging out with us “old” folks.  ;-)

So check out some of the images from the session and be sure to watch the video at the end!

Family Portraits in San Jose, CA

Hello everyone! It’s been a super fun season and we have had some amazing weather here in the San Francisco Bay Area. I’m so excited to share these family portraits. We had so much fun that if I just told you how much fun we had you would think I was making it up. And you know what they say, seeing is believing so be sure to check out the video at the end.

Meet the “funnest” family ever! (Yes I do know funnest isn’t a word- I totally made it up)

Mom & dad are so awesome with son J. Everyone laughed, made silly faces, snuck up on each other, ran, climbed trees, hugged and kissed!  The only thing missing was ….. hmm nothing IT was a perfect evening!
