lets feed the ducks

Isn't this little girl gorgeous?! She takes after her mama ;) Though she started off a teensy bit shy, you should have seen her light up when the ducks came over for some treats. From that moment on, it was clear sailing. She was all smiles and giggles after that :)

gorgeous spring day!

The weather couldn't have been better for our evening session in Oakland. And I got to hang out with THE nicest family! Having recently moved from Canada, they are just now getting settled in California. I'm so flattered they squeezed a session in with me during such a busy time! And did I mention what gorgeous weather we had!?! Everyone was out BBQing, playing frisbee or soccer, & you could hear kids laughing all over the park.

first time camping for our nephews!

Over 4th of July weekend, we took our two super cute nephews to Lassen National Park to try out camping for the first time. They had a blast! We made s'mores, explored caves, skipped stones in the dark.....and got really really dirty ;)

picking flowers

I was so worried when we showed up for our session and it was cold, windy and foggy. But this little one didn't let it bother her at all! She ran all over the gardens picking flowers and sharing them with her parents and me. She was such a sweetheart :)

special visit

I was so flattered when this gorgeous, amazing family carved out some time during their visit back to San Francisco to have a family session with me. And the girls! Ugh! Look how cute they are together. I swear it was non-stop laughing and giggling the entire time. I'm sure I made them late to their dinner because I just couldn't stop taking pictures of them!

sarah and charlie

I first met Charlie when he was just starting to talk. His favorite thing to say used to be "oh wow!" Everywhere we went with him, he seemed fascinated with everything around him. "Oh wow!" Ugh! He was just so cute! And as you can see, he's only gotten cuter. Curious, smart, and so much fun to be around - we had a blast letting him run us through the park ;)
