FLEETING MOMENTS | PRECIOUS MEMORIES
About the Family
What a wonderful photo session it was with a beautiful baby Maeve and her parents Natalie and Matt. A few years ago I was one of the photographers who had a pleasure of photographing Natalie and Matt's gorgeous wedding at the Kunde Winery in Sonoma. The ongoing joke was that Matt had spent more time with me than anyone else during the wedding (other then his bride) because we were on top of a hill in an olive orchard waiting on Natalie to arrive for the first look. There was some sort of delay so we spent at least 30 minutes chatting away. I was so excited to hear that they had a baby girl and I was even more excited when they contacted me to photograph this family session for them.
Throughout the entire length of about two hours baby Maeve was smiling and playing. She was in excellent spirits which her parents assured me she is in all the time. How lucky!!! I was glad to partake in play and to interact with her. Maeve was such a joy to photograph. Towards the end, it was close to her nap and all she did was lean her head on her mommy's shoulder, which we can see from the very last photo. It was time to wrap up our shoot. I went home happy knowing that I had captured some beautiful memories.
About the Location
Natalie and Matt live in the Oakland area and because of it's proximity I suggested to do a session at the Berkeley Rose Garden. I've only just discovered this gem of a location a few weeks prior to our shoot and was anxious to visit it again. The rose garden itself is set on a fairly steep hill but just to the left is such a beautiful redwood grove setting. It has tall redwood trees, two or three wood bridges, green ground cover made up of vines and beautiful steps.
