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!

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!

Nine month baby portraits

Hello friends! It’s the moment you have all been waiting for.. this adorable little girl’s nine month portraits!!  OK just kidding maybe you ALL haven’t been waiting but I know lots of her fans (aka her family) have been.

I know for sure I love love love looking and looking at these pictures. And the video at the end… OH MY GOD!  I will forever cherish it. You see this is my little niece!!!  So of course I can go on and on about this session… but I won’t well not for too much.

I loved shooting this portrait session not just because of the obvious  niece thing, but also because I love walking around the Lake Merritt Oakland, CA area.  Oh and there was also a Yummy yummy milkshake and burgers break we took mid session.. but never mind that. On with the photos…

Family Portraits

A million years ago I met up with this family for portraits.  I love love love shooting their portraits each year and watching this little guy grow.  The first time I took their family portraits he was so little (see him here)  and as the years have gone by .. he’s grown and grown. (and see him here too)

My time with this family is always so much fun, we laugh together, jump, skip and then after our session we have started a tradition of going to dinner together. I’m not sure what’s the best part of the day laughing with them or eating with them!
