Mid-Century Modern Maternity and Newborn Session in Oakland
FLEETING MOMENTS | PRECIOUS MEMORIES

As soon as I walked through the door of Kelsey and Jason's beautiful Oakland Hills home I was certain that our maternity and newborn session will turn out gorgeous. The home itself is decorated throughout with mid century modern style which is my favorite. Beautiful windows and abundance of character adorned this beautifully decorated interior. Jason and Kelsey are such a beautiful couple who welcomed me into their home with open arms.  They wanted low key photos which show their true personalities.  As a lifestyle photographer, that is exactly what I love to hear.  It fueled my creativity even more. 

Jason and Kelsey shared such a cute story with me about how they realized once they started dating that they actually attended the same preschool in San Jose.  It is one of those stories that you read about in feel-good articles online.  Jason recognized an expression Kelsey used that was very specific to the preschool he attended as a child and soon after they realized that they were there together playing with legos and learning ABC's.  They even showed me the photos to prove it. How cute is that?! 

About the Newborn Session

A few weeks following our session, I got the call that baby Falcon arrived. I was so excited to meet him finally.  He arrived little later then everyone expected.  He is such a handsome and beautiful baby boy. I loved being a witness to these such special moments of being first time parents for Jason and Kelsey. To say that they are smitten with Falcon would be an understatement.  The session was a breeze and Falcon was a joy to photograph.

Location

Prior to the maternity session we brainstormed ideas on where to photograph. Oakland has so many great locations but in the end we picked a perfect location, their beautiful home in Oakland Hills. The home is set on hill in such a cute neighborhood.  Both, interior of the home and exterior (the backyard) were perfect for taking photos.  I definitely wanted to explore both areas and take advantage of beautiful mid century decor throughout.

At Home Newborn Session in Hillsborough. San Francisco Bay Area Photographer
FLEETING MOMENTS | PRECIOUS MEMORIES

Even though I am based in Walnut Creek, I drive all over the Bay Area regularly to photograph my clients. For this newborn session I drove to Hillsborough, a beautiful town on the Peninsula. This sweet family welcomed their second child eleven days prior to my visit. His big sister Bella was so excited and kind of stole the show (until her nap time that is).  It was a fun session which was over in a blink of an eye.  

About the Session

This brand new baby boy didn't want to miss his very first photo shoot so he stayed awake for most of it.   He has such beautiful big eyes that I could have kept just clicking forever as he soaked in his surroundings.  As a lifestyle newborn photographer I like capturing awake shots just as much as sleepy ones.

Lifestyle Newborn Session in Berkeley
FLEETING MOMENTS | PRECIOUS MEMORIES

This lifestyle newborn session at my client's home in Berkeley was a photographers dream.  The sweetest family who just became a party of three welcomed me into their home with open arms. Their beautiful baby Poppy did everything I could ever want and then some. She even smiled at only eight days new and I am not talking about those sleepy smiles but a full on awake smile just for the camera.  

About the Session

 My client's home was stunning with windows all around and a beautiful decor to match. Natural light was in abundance even though it was a cloudy day. I worked slowly and followed along what baby Poppy wanted to do. The beauty of lifestyle sessions is that nothing is altered. It's natural and organic. When Poppy was hungry, we took a brake. Other than that, you could only hear click of my shutter and Poppy's parents loving words of amazement while looking at their daughter.

When I photograph I often focus on changing expressions and try to capture all the little movements, yawns and stretches.  Even at only eight days, newborns have their own very distinct personality. All it takes is to zoom in and pay attention.
