Maternity Session at a Horse Ranch in Danville | Bay Area Photographer

I just wanted to quickly post a teaser shot of the recent maternity session that I photographed at a private horse ranch in Danville. The couple had this beautiful classic Jeep Wagoneer and suggested to use it for our session. It was such a great idea. I will be posting more from this session once I finish editing. Until then, enjoy!

From Bump to Baby with Molly and Manju | East Bay Newborn Photographer

When I was first contacted by Molly about the maternity session, it was such a short notice. Their scheduled photographer didn’t show up the day of the session and they needed someone quick to fill in. Luckily, I was able to move things around to fit them in because only two days after our maternity session Molly went into labor. I am also super glad that we were able to make it work because I got to meet the sweetest couple ever and we didn’t miss out on capturing these very precious memories.

About the Maternity Session

Molly and Manju picked the Lafayette Reservoir as their location for the maternity photoshoot. Normally the Lafayette Reservoir is not my first choice but in this case, it was the only right choice for the couple. They got married there a year prior and for them the Lafayette Reservoir is a special place. During the entire session these two acted like they are still on their honeymoon. It was so obvious to me how much love is between them. Also, during this session, I’ve grown to love this location and now it will definitely be on my list of favorite spots. I especially loved going close to the water’s edge and getting those beautiful sunset shots. The session was so easy for me and I really enjoyed Molly and Manju’s company and once it was all over, I was so excited to meet their baby girl.

About the Newborn Session

Thankfully, I didn’t have to wait that long until their baby was born. Exactly two days after our maternity session, Molly delivered a very healthy and beautiful baby girl. Newborn photo session was scheduled soon after and it was photographed at their beautiful home in the Orinda hills.

Side Note

I’ve been hearing lately terrible stories about professional photographers not being so professional. For example, I have friends who did the session but never got their photos afterwards or in this case where photographer never even showed up to the session. Imagine being all dressed up with make-up and ready to go and then your photographer is a no show. To make sure this doesn’t happen to you, please please please do your homework. Research the photographer and read his/her reviews. Also, it’s a good idea to put down the deposit and sign a contract. There is a lot of us out there which makes the right choice that much more difficult. Family mementos such as images documenting special events in one’s lives have to be important to photographer as much as they are to you.

Berkeley Rose Garden maternity and family photo session

This Berkeley Rose Garden maternity and family photo session was so much fun. Little Lucia showed off her really fun personality and I was so glad to be there to experience it. At one point during the session Lucia, on her own accord, picked up two leaves off the ground and started dancing as if she was a cheerleader. It was such a spontaneous moment and it made me and her parents smile from ear to ear.

This family is expecting a little boy really soon so this was in a way the last professional photoshoot for them before they become party of four. The special moments between Lucia and her parents and her excitement of soon becoming a big sister are such sweet memories. Down the road, this family will be looking at these images with nostalgia and talk about them for years to come.

My job as a photographer is much more then delivering a beautiful gallery of images. I consider myself to be a documentarian. With the clicks of my shutter, I am freezing time and telling a story of my client’s life.

About the Location

Berkeley Rose Garden is a beautiful place located in a residential area of the Berkeley Hills. It is a city owned park which is nestled in a small canyon. I particularly like the forest grove like setting with beautiful steps and wooden bridges.

Lands End and Sutro Baths Maternity Photography | San Francisco Photographer

Fleeting Moments | Precious Memories

It was a lovely but slightly chilly Wednesday afternoon when I met my clients Kayla and Darius for their maternity photoshoot. Lands End and Sutro Baths are two of my favorite locations in San Francisco for maternity photography so I was super excited to shoot another session there.

About the Couple

The session started with the warmest hugs which set the tone up for one of the best photoshoots I ever had. Instantly, I felt like we were best of friends. Kayla and Darius are both ER doctors who made San Francisco their permanent home. With such busy schedules it was slightly challenging to find a couple of hours of free time but I am so glad we did. They are expecting their first child and if you look at these images you can feel the love and excitement for what is to come radiating through.

About the Location

As I mentioned before Sutro Baths and Lands End are two of my favorite locations in the San Francisco Bay Area for maternity photography and they happen to be adjacent to each other. We started of in the Land End area by walking through cypress trees towards the coast then we walked through the Sutro Baths ruins down towards the beach. It’s a great location but it can be chilly and very windy. In this case, Kayla was super brave in her beautiful dress and she didn’t even mind having to tie her hair back when needed. Also, it is not the easiest of terrains but both Kayla and Darius were ready for the adventure.

I can’t wait to meet their little one really soon.

Baby on the Way! Maternity Photographer | Tilden Park, San Francisco Bay Area

FLEETING MOMENTS | PRECIOUS MEMORIES

Baby is on the way and the pregnancy glow is a real thing. Those are the two real facts about this maternity session that I photographed a few weeks back at the Tilden Park. It was a perfect evening with the sweetest couple. They are about to become first time parents and they could not be more excited.  I also loved meeting their new dog Rusty who they adopted just a few weeks prior. 

About the Location

The time is almost here for Jamie and Matt to enter the joy's of parenthood and for this maternity photoshoot they picked one of their most favorite locations in Bay Area (Lake Anza, Tilden Park).  As the sun was going down we weaved carefully around the lake discovering together it's beautiful pockets that made a stunning backdrop for our images. 

Choosing my favorites was not an easy task.  Enjoy!!!

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.

Borges Ranch Maternity Session in Walnut Creek

FLEETING MOMENTS | PRECIOUS MEMORIES

I met this gorgeous mama and her family a few years ago through a mutual friend of ours. Life tends to always get in the way and our mutual friend moved away to the East Coast so we really havent's seen each other in a while. I was super excited to hear that Amanda's second baby is on the way and that she wanted me to capture these special moments.  My sessions allow me to reconnect and spend extra time with friends who I don't get to see that often. Plus, I get to meet a little baby boy very soon.  Basically, my job is awesome.

About the Family

Amanda and Alex are some of the sweetest people I ever had a chance to photograph.  They were both natural in front of the camera and were playful and even goofy at times. Also, their little girl Olivia was such a ham during the entire session. Capturing her personality was super easy. At one point, I completely switched to just photographing her. Our maternity session got taken over by this adorable mini model and we went along with it.  She was doing her poses and it was so cute and fun. One thing is for sure, there was not one dull moment during the two hours we spent together.  

Did I mention, Amanda looked stunning! The entire time, I was literally in awe of her pregnancy glow and beauty and could not contain my constant compliments. 

About the Location

For this maternity session we've decided that Borges Ranch in Walnut Creek is a perfect location. Borges Ranch has been around since the late 19th century and it's actually a historic site that is open to visitors. It's one of the favorite locations for photographers here in Walnut Creek and rightfully so.  Amanda wanted a natural yet rustic feel to her maternity photos and Borges Ranch delivers on both those fronts.  Surrounding hills and trails were covered in green which just added even more beauty. We even spotted some deer during our session.

In-Home Maternity Photo Session in Oakland

FLEETING MOMENTS | PRECIOUS MEMORIES

The sunlight from the window pouring in and creating shadows in all the right places makes this shot extra special.  This maternity session I photographed yesterday at my client's beautiful home in Oakland was a visual delight. I can not wait to discover more gems such as this one during the editing process.  More from this session will be coming soon.

Also, I can't wait to meet their little one very soon.

Sutro Baths and Lands End | Maternity Session for Lauren and Matt

FLEETING MOMENTS | PRECIOUS MEMORIES

About The Parents-To-Be

I am in love with Lauren and Matt's beautiful maternity session! Lauren and Matt are expecting their first child and they can not be more excited about the next chapter in their lives. Lauren looked simply stunning and the dress she chose to wear was a perfect compliment to her gorgeous baby bump. I am so honored to have been chosen by them to capture these memories with my camera.

About The Session

This maternity session was photographed at the Lands End and Sutro Baths in San Francisco. This location is one of my favorite Bay Area locations to photograph. We're so lucky to be in this gorgeous area! One of the main reasons for my love of the Lands End and Sutro Baths is because you get so much variety, all within walking distance. We started off in the forest area. This is above the Sutro Baths and then, we made our way through the ruins, then down to the beach.  

Because of its beauty, it is no surprise that on any given day there are large groups of photographers working with their clients. Whether it's a wedding, engagement, maternity or a family photo session- the expectation for this area is that it's going to be super busy. I was slightly worried going into it on a beautiful Saturday afternoon like this, but it all worked out. Lauren and Matt had a beautiful maternity session, regardless of how busy it was.  It was a breath of fresh air to discover a sliver of deserted beach and that is where we finished off our session at the perfect time- as the sun went down. The hardest part about Lauren and Matt's maternity session was choosing these photos for this blog post. I could not narrow it down anymore so I am sharing a lot of them with you. Enjoy!
