Bump To Baby Photoshoots in Walnut Creek and San Francisco

Something some of you know, but most of you may not, is that I moved to this country as a refugee. I was born in Croatia and as a child I survived the ugliness of a war that ravaged the area formerly known as Yugoslavia. This war ultimately led me to the United States, and resulted in me settling in the San Francisco Bay Area, so I am hesitant to complain. Even though I am completely assimilated as an American some twenty years after arriving in this country, I still occasionally get a tinge of nostalgia. To cure the nostalgia, I travel to Croatia almost yearly, and I also often rock out to the 90s Yugo pop music (especially when editing photos while home alone). I especially love to meet people from my neck of the woods who share similar experiences as mine. So, when I got the email from Vesna I was super excited to photograph both the maternity and newborn sessions for her and her husband Matt.

About the Maternity Session

Vesna’s husband Matt was born and raised in Walnut Creek, so for the maternity session we chose to stay close to where he grew up. We decided on the beautiful Shell Ridge open space and Borges Ranch as our photo destination. The open space looks so gorgeous as the sun falls behind the rolling hills and the Ranch gave us a lot of variety to play with, and even a few goats to include in the photos for fun.

About the Lifestyle Newborn Session

Vesna and Matt have a beautiful condo in San Francisco which they completely remodeled and which Vesna decorated herself. I was thrilled when I saw large windows and fantastic natural light throughout the space. Their baby boy was so adorable and so easy to photograph. He cooperated during the entire three hour session.

Needless to say, this Bump to Baby journey was a joy to photograph! Enjoy.

Lifestyle Newborn Session with Twin Babies and Toddler | San Francisco Photographer

Guys, how cute is this lifestyle session with twin babies and their toddler “big” sister? Even with ten years of experience photographing babies in the San Francisco Bay Area, it is not too often that I get to photograph twin newborns and especially not twins with a three year old older sibling. Actually, I am pretty sure this was my first such combination. I loved every moment of this lifestyle session including shooting and editing. Finally now I get to pick my favorite images to show off. Choosing favorites was not an easy task at all because the gallery ended up being huge, with 150 different captures, and you can imagine how narrowing it down can be slightly difficult.

About the Newborn Session

I was excited, to say the least, when I first entered this family’s beautiful home in the Orinda hills. It is always the unexpected that gets my creative juices flowing so I usually welcome a touch of uncertainty but this particular day was slightly worrisome to me as a natural light photographer. It was so dark and gloomy and it rained all day long with no break in sight. As I was driving the curvy mountain road up to the house I was hoping that there would be enough light and I would not have to postpone the session. As I entered, I saw the beautiful living space with huge windows and I breathed a sigh of relief. I knew immediately that it would work, erasing any doubts I had.

My favorite part during the whole session was the twins’ older sister who was so sweet and loving. She was giving her new sister and brother lot’s of kisses and hugs.

This session is an excellent example of why I love newborn photography. The precious memories of those very first moments when this sweet family became a party of five is captured by me and these images will now last forever. Enjoy!

Twin Lifestyle Newborn Session | San Francisco Photographer

Whoa, it has been so long since my last post. I have been so busy and now I am finally coming up for air. Between my son being out of school, the holidays and bunch of photoshoots I am slowly coming back to normal. I can not wait to blog about the sessions that I did but for now I have a teaser shot from a lifestyle newborn session with twin babies and their three year old big sister. I don’t get to photograph twins all that often so I was super excited and ready for the challenge. I will be posting a more complete blog post very soon from this session. It’s definitely one of my recent favorites in the newborn category.

With little to no prompting this little three year old girl was cuddling and giving her brother kisses during the entire photoshoot. It was unbelievable. Her parents told me that she is in awe of them and that she thinks they are just the cutest. I happen to that too.
