One of the happiest serendipities we've experienced recently was when the stork decided to land at our good friends' home right after ours. Our babies are just a few weeks apart and are already BFFs (they wear matching grey Zutano booties, love holding hands at the kitchen table, and blow mouthfuls of bubbles). It has been such a gift to share the experience of parenthood with our friends, and we are doubly honored to be asked to do a family photo session for them.
We met up just before sunset at Baker Beach to photograph this 6 month old and her parents. It was November but felt like a cool summer evening. Thank you California! Never mind the temperature, these three didn't need any excuse to snuggle. The bond between them is seriously a special one, and we caught such touching photos of them just being themselves, and in the beautiful light of the sunset, they glowed with spirited joy. Watching this young family walk on the beach, so full of love, bowled us over with a deep appreciation for this life. Just beautiful. These were moments you didn't want to end. Not to mention, their little baby is so adorable, it was hard not to just yum her up right then and there.
Congratulations darling family on the new addition! We love you three mucho!
