I’m knee-deep in holiday season photo sessions galore, but am taking a break to share this sweet set. Two adorable girls + one extremely camera-aware dog + two relaxed parents + a light-drenched home filled with comforting colors and fabrics = dream session. Thanks for an enjoyable morning, Huang-Shih Family!

I meet this fun family each Fall and have watched their kids grow from infant and toddler to 1st and 2nd grader. I’ve said this before but it bears repeating – this, the witnessing of a family evolve and grow – this is one of the most interesting and rewarding parts of what I do. Thank you, Corey Family, for trusting me to document you. I love doing it.

I’ve been photographing this family since their first kiddo, Asher, was a little baby. Now he’s a little kid with a baby sister, Nessa, and they’ve traded in San Francisco for peninsula living. I’m glad we were able to spend the morning together and forever memorialize their breezy and affection-filled Sunday morning routine.

We met back in 2013 when their first son, Charlie, was a cuddly baby. Now they’re a family of FIVE with a super silly second son, Ryan, and a joy-bomb of a baby girl, Ellie. It was so nice to spend a morning with you, Nielsen Family. You all are beautiful!

This sweet trio has made a lovely sanctuary amidst the high energy beat of the Mission. Their home is calming and colorful – a perfect place for a 6 month-old baby to learn about things and people-watch from his window perch. Little TJ has already learned to sleep through the city noise that travels his way. He has also learned to love the camera, apparently, and was all about gazing right into my lens as I clicked away. It was so nice to spend the morning with you three. You’ve got a serious charmer on your hands.

This baby girl, born a few days after Christmas, is just about the best gift a family 23-month little boy could receive. He could hardly keep his hands off his baby sister during our shoot. I can’t say I blame him. Welcome to the world, Heidi. Congrats on your baby, Owen. 😉

This fantastic family is a study in grace. Mama and Papa are rockstar creatives with exploding careers and while their jobs and kiddos – Nash (6 yr) and Noa (4 yr) – are more than enough for most mere mortals to handle, they just added a new baby to the mix. Little Elijah was a month old when we met for our shoot and he was one chill dude. It helps that he’s painfully cute. It helps that his siblings are super sweet and gentle with him. It also helps that this family has an abundance of love to spread around and around and around. Thanks for inviting me to document a morning with you, Shankman Family. Proud to call you all friends – love you guys and gals!!
