Family Session in Alamo Square

Family

“The face of a child can say it all, especially the mouth part of the face.” -Jack Handey

I met up with little 2 year old Alessandro and his parents last week for some fun pictures in Alamo Square. Alessandro was fabulous – he was playful, friendly, and even shared his homemade ice cream with me. Check out some of the pictures from our session!

Alessandro and Mom shared some very tender moments reading in a big comfy chair by the window. He played with his hair and helped mom turn the pages. I absolutely love little kid features, especially when they’re right next to those of a parent. He had adorable little toes and cute little fingers that laid on mom’s hand when she read. He loves to read and it was hard to pull him away from his books to go outside. Not such a bad problem for a parent to have!

He was definitely a fun little guy!

We took a trip out to Alamo Square to play on the grass and the playground there. I had brought some bubbles along which took a little while to get used to. The first attempt wound up going in the wrong direction right back into little Alessandro’s face. The wind eventually cooperated and helped out to get the bubbles going the right way.

Boy did we have fun on the playground! There were slides and swings and sand. Things to climb and things to turn. The fun didn’t stop with Alessandro – Mom and Dad went down the slides too, almost giggling as much as Alessandro. He made ice cream for mom and dad (watermelon, I think) out of sand and generously offered some to me too. I assure you that it was a very intense process.

The pictures were for mom so I have to highlight some of the absolute cutest moments between the two of them. They chased each other around the bright yellow flowers. In the background you can see some of the famous Painted Ladies of San Francisco (the pretty Victorian houses you’ve seen from Full House). They were so sweet together, just running around and having a blast. There no doubt that he definitely loves his momma.

It was a very full evening. We did so much that there’s no wonder he passed out on Mommy’s shoulder. It was a very fun time and Alessandro was just a great kid. I have a feeling that mom and dad passed out when they got home, too! Thanks for a fun day, guys!

Philadelphia Maternity Photographer | Chestnut Hill | Moira + Brett
Once upon a time I photographed a beautiful couple.  They married in a magical place called Holly Hedge Estate with beautiful flowers and a crowd that danced all night long.  They live in Chestnut Hill with a cranky cat named Piper and I had the fortune of being brought into their lives again.  This time for a bump. Moira and Brett are due sometime this month so I met up with them at their Philly home for some maternity pictures. They don’t know the sex and aren’t telling names (it would help if they chose some!) but most are pretty certain that Moira has a boy in there and has been going by RJB for RickyJimBob. This sw ...

Philadelphia Newborn Photographer | Jack
It is always pretty great spending a few hours with a newborn.  The parents are seeing stars, both from the overwhelming “whoa” of now having this little creature that is all theirs and the mind-numbing lack of sleep. Jeff and Vanessa brought me little Jack.  At just 8 days old, he was completely attentive to his mommy.  He even cracked a smile or two for us. With time, we got ourselves a sweet, sleepy baby who just curled up for us. His teeny baby details were beyond adorable. Tell me this swirl of hair isn’t swoon-worthy. Vanessa and Jeff will eventually leave the Northeast for homebase back in Texas.  Until ...

Family Session on Ballena Isle, Alameda
Ack, so much to do, so little time. Isn't that always the case for the holidays? I have quite a few posts to catch up on – including an envy-inducing one from my travels in Cancun this month.But first, I want to share with you a family shoot from last week. This was such a fun family. I mean it. They were up for most anything. I offered them my list of fun San Francisco spots but they realized that there's no place that feels better for them than their own back yard – Ballena Isle in Alameda. They are self proclaimed avid sailors and live right on the marina. I showed up a bit early to take a look around and they were so right. It was ...
