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!
Remember the mama who had her maternity photos taken just two days before she gave birth? Well here he is! We had a lot of fun with this session taken at his home in Sunnyvale. I recently got a new white romper as well as some new digital backdrops and I was lucky enough to be able to try them out during our mini newborn session together. Baby boy started the session awake but he was so comfy in the wool that he fell right asleep. And I even got a smile! What a good baby!
This was a fun summery session that took place in the heart of Sunnyvale. I love living here! Mama picked out a great dress to compliment the season which she got from Pink Blush Maternity, one of our preferred gown vendors because of style and quality.

I met this mama to be in her Sunnyvale home just two days before she gave birth to a beautiful baby boy! Can you believe it? While I normally recommend having your maternity photos taken a little earlier in the pregnancy, sometimes things just don't work out and this time we cut it close and lucked out that her baby waited until we got the photos of mom before making his debut! This mama loves plants and that might be an understatement!! I was so glad that I could incorporate her collection of flowers and fauna to make her session a little more special. We also got dad and big sister to join in on the photo fun! Such a beautiful little family! P.S. Stay tuned for her son's newborn baby photos that will make you have baby fever!!
I met Vani and her husband Chetan along with their oldest son Sid at Baylands Park in Sunnyvale (Sid is very happy to have a baby brother in August). Vani was about seven months pregnant (which btw is a great time to get maternity photos since you are not too tired yet but your belly still looks amazing). We had a lot of fun with many props that Vani had brought (she is Pinterest master/genius!): chalk board sign for custom messages, clothes line with baby outfits, baby shoes, and flower crown. She is amazing for being so creative and I'm glad we got to use them to make her session more special. P.S. They also brought a family friend along who filled in as our session assistant and he was amazingly helpful! Thanks guys!
