This was my last session before the quarantine happened. I'm so glad we were able to do it about two weeks before the quarantine made everything crazy. I met these two adorable twin baby girls at their home in Santa Clara at the end of February. I haven't been had the opportunity to photograph twins since I took my nieces' photos so I was super excited to do this session. The older two sisters just loved their new little twin sisters. And the two year old was remarkably well behaved for her age, something nice to have to make my job a little easier. And oh boy, let me tell you: their mama is a rock star! She delivered her twins at home at 39 (and closer to 40!) weeks gestation. Wow! And you could never tell by how stunning she looks! Simply amazing!
One twin was more interested in sleeping than the other, but that's usually how it goes right? They're still both so cute! Do you see the crocheted pea pod? That was a prop that the mom pulled out and asked to use in the session. I was dying from how cute they were in it; two peas in a pod!
I photographed this little guy with his mom, dad, and big sister at their home. Big sis was amazing! Two year olds can be a difficult age to work with but this little girl was a rock star and such a good listener. You could tell she was really excited to have a new baby in her family.
When we started the session it seemed like little baby boy was not going to settle or sleep but once he was swaddled he went right to sleep. While this is not always the case you as a new or soon to be parent can learn about why swaddling often works so well (along with other advice about soothing baby) by signing up for my Free New Parent Email Guide (link also in side bar --->).
Happy Lunar New Year! This little guy's mama really wanted to use Panda's as the inspiration for her son's newborn session. And oh boy it was so fun! I got a new white fuzzy knitted bear bonnet to go with my favorite fuzzy baby jammies and mama also had this cute little crocheted panda hat. Pandas FTW!
This little guy was my first baby to photograph in 2020! Happy New Year! He was pretty gassy (poor little guy!) and was therefore not super interested in sleeping but we still managed some beautiful photos.
Meet the smallest baby I have photographed this year; this little guy weighed only about five pounds! He was so tiny!! He was also not very interested in sleeping but I used all my tricks and still got to fill the gallery with 25 beautiful portraits (this was a petite newborn session). I also included one photo here on the blog that shows just how tiny (and wide awake!) he was during our session.
