home sweet home

I just got back from spending the week with my family in Ann Arbor. It was so nice to be home! I also got the chance to catch up with old friends, including all of their kids! It was so nice to see everyone. The whole week was pretty great weather-wise (which is saying something for Michigan in April). The day we planned to do these photos ended up being a little chilly, but the kid were troopers and we still had fun at Gallup Park :)

on the move!

This little girl is on the move! Kennedy is walking all over the place in her cute little pink sneakers. And just in time for her new baby brother!!! Congratulations! And how gorgeous is mom? If only all of us could look so beautiful when we're pregnant... (I'm not jealous at all) ;)

valentine's day mini sessions

We had the most perfect weather for this VDay mini session! And even though we need rain desperately in the bay area (and all of California)....I'm so grateful the sun was shining that morning :)

sisters, friends forever

These sisters were the absolute cutest! They were so sweet and kind to one another. I felt really honored to witness such a beautiful relationship between those two.

emily and kevin

I had so much fun with these guys! Despite the solid week of rain....and subsequent soaked grounds of Lake Temescal, these guys had a blast. They came prepared with their cute little boots and splashed in every puddle we came across. They fed the ducks, raced around the park, and just had fun. And thanks to the rain, everything was lush and green and sparkling. It was lovely. My personal favorite part of the session was Emily and her adored stuffed cow, Moo Moo. She loves him & takes him everywhere. I'm so glad she brought him to our shoot :)

macie and elise

How gorgeous is this family? And the kids were so good!!! Sometimes during sessions it can be a bit of a challenge keeping both kids happy and interested simultaneously, but Macie was such an amazing big sister. She patiently waited and played while we caught a few pics of her baby sister, Elise. And then she lit up again for the camera at a moment's notice. And though I love how this family is dressed (soft creams and pink - perfect!), I can't help but especially love Macie's rainbow tutu and rain boots. It perfectly fit her friendly & bubbly personality :)
