What a crazy year it has been. But despite what is happening outside our doors we should still celebrate special moments in our lives, even if for a few minutes. Just a quick 5-10 minute photos of Xavier.
We all know that the photo shoot is ran by the kids. They let us know how long we can take the photos and when they are absolutely ready. Sometimes a photographer has the extra time and some keep true to the time scheduled. But when it is twin newborns.... we can try our best when it is just one baby but with 2, it feels like we are out numbered even though there are more of us...
I love these, my favorite is the more candid shots with the parents and the last one with their dog, a complete family. 💗
I love when you can visit the same place over and over but end up with backgrounds that you have never captured before. These trees have seen so many family's having moments captured by many photographers in the East Bay area, but not every session is the same. I try to let the family and the area inspire me which leads towards most locations never being shot exactly the same.
Baby Henry is sooo happy and loved. Instead of parents looking at the camera with the smile, Henry decided to run the show with capturing us.
Love these! The trees here are just fantastic and Marybel, Alex, and Xavier just complement their surrounds. While I wanted to share some of my favorites from that day, the family sitting with the trees in the background. The image of Xavier crying I just love because it truly reflects what happens during sessions. It isn't all sunshine, perfect outfits, and smiling faces. It is hard to be a baby model. 😉💖
Emily and her entourage in tow 😉 were such troopers as we spent a good amount of time in Calaveras Big Trees then ended our session in Murphys, CA. It is so hard to truly capture the size of the sequoia trees, but I think we were able to capture a little this and that. Even a photo inside of a fallen tree! Emily even shared the small waterfall that is located behind the Murphys Historic Hotel, who would have known. I have been in the downtown many times but never take the time to walk "behind the scenes". While there are many I have loaded believe me when I say, this is just a small amount from what was captured. Congrats Emily!
