Becky + Glenn: San Francisco Baby Bump Photo Session on Ocean Beach

       One of the best parts about being wedding photographers is that photographing our client's family history continues far past the night of their wedding. We've formed so many lifelong friendships and love watching families evolve and grow :)

       Becky + Glenn got married last summer in San Francisco, at a wedding that went down in history for the epic dance party that ensued -- it was awesome! We were so excited when we heard that these two love birds were expecting a little baby bird early next year and also loved the excuse to be able to hang out with them both again. We had the most gorgeous October sunset on Ocean Beach last week and got to celebrate their baby-on-the-way with these sweet baby bump photos.

       We are THRILLED for you two, B + G! You are going to be fantastic parents and we know that your little one is not only going to be adorable, but also a rock star on the dance floor! Congratulations!

Oakland Maternity Photography Session: Ayana + Damani

       We have done annual family photo sessions with Ayana for several years, but this year we got to document a very special new chapter in her life. She and her husband Damani are going to be having a baby (!!!!) so a maternity session was in order. We met with them on a chilly winter morning in Oakland, stopping at several lush locations to take photos. Ayana + Damani are thrilled about the baby and they are going to be truly wonderful parents! We can't wait to meet their baby boy later this year and take photos with their new tiny family member!

Albany Newborn Photography: Baby Cate

     A few months ago, we took maternity photos with Lex + Grant at the beach. And then around Thanksgiving, the most adorable baby girl was born, Catherine Leigh. We went to go visit the new family of three in their beautiful home in Albany and of course, took photos of their most precious baby girl! We held her in our arms, and could feel our hearts melting as our eyes connected. Welcome to the world, sweet baby Cate!
