I have known Helen for a while….her daughter and mine have been in classes together throughout the years. So when she contacted me about a family portrait I was excited and honored to do it.
She mentioned that they would like the Bay Bridge in some of their shots so I immediately thought of Sandy Point Park. We had a great time traipsing around in the sand and we even had an audience of a family of deer who seemed interested in what we were doing.
I hope you enjoy your images Helen! It was a lot of fun!
What do you get when you combine a gorgeous day, some beautiful backdrops and a cutie patootie like this???
Some awesome images that I LOVED working on!!!
Little Miss R is just over a year old and she is the sweetest little girl! We had lots of fun frolicking all over her grandma and grandpa’s property, which was beautiful and I hope to shoot there again someday, hehe.
Thanks for having me capture your granddaughter Kelly! I hope you enjoy the images!
Sarah and I met at Kinderfarm Park to capture some portraits of her sweet little 18 month old. He is all boy and was loving the dirt and grass. I love this age because you just let them be and follow them and they will give you some pretty awesome chances for images.
This adorable little lady’s mom contacted me through a referral….
Ann and I met at Brookside Gardens and let little J lead us around the park. She has an infectious smile and we had so much fun!
Thanks Ann…I really hope you enjoy these!
Oh, and from now on I am going to have all Moms (and/or Dads) get in at least ONE picture with their kids….we NEVER seem to do that but our children will be so grateful they have the memories when they are older.
OK, so I’m one of those photographers that is CONSTANTLY looking for cool places to shoot. I must see 1 or 2 every time I venture out in the car to the store, to drop the kids somewhere, anywhere. I always wish I could pull over right then and there and shoot something there, lol.
This location I used for my minis was one of those places. I had discovered it almost 2 years ago but had never used it for anything. When I finally purchased the yellow chair I was obsessing about on Craigslist, I started looking for places to put it for some cool images. I remembered this spot. The flowers hadn’t been there when I had first seen it but when I drove by recently, it had blossomed all these gorgeous yellow wildflowers. I couldn’t WAIT to bring my chair over! (sounds crazy, I know)
So, of course, my poor daughter got swindled into going over there one nice afternoon and helped me carry the chair and so graciously, lol, not, modeled for me.
Anyhow, I think this is one of my favorite spots so far. The flowers have long since faded but the pretty grass is still there…
These are some images from my 2 mini sessions I shot there.
