This beautiful family welcomed their baby girl Nora into the world on April 17th.  I couldn’t be more excited to photograph their little bean this weekend 🙂  Nora is so lucky to be part of this amazing family, and she is already so loved.  I was beyond excited to photograph this very special time in their lives.  Mom Paris is truly a glowing mommy-to-be!  Enjoy!

The Holden twins turned ONE!  Every detail was perfect for Brooks and Hannah’s first birthday celebration.  This fun circus themed party was held in Brad and Nicole’s beautiful backyard on an incredibly HOT and perfect April day in San Francisco.  Scroll all the way down to see the babies enjoying their cake – they dug right in!

The babies gathered for a sing-a-long and Brooks wasn’t too sure about it!  Hannah on the other hand, was pumped 🙂

They REALLY enjoyed their cake!!  So cute!

Brooks was pretty happy about his cake.  I love how Hannah kept looking over at him to see how he was doing 🙂

The END!  Congrats to Nicole and Brad for making it through year ONE with your beautiful babies!  🙂

Oh my oh my was it cold and windy for this shoot on the beach!  Emily’s family is one of my favorites to photograph, mom and dad are just the nicest, and the boys are so well behaved.  New baby Charlotte is just like her momma, sweet as can be!  Unfortunately, over the past three years for all of their shoots, we have gotten classic foggy windy San Francisco weather!!  Next time I told her we should schedule something in the east bay 🙂  The weather didn’t stop us, we got some great shots and I love the ones on the beach!  Foggy/cloudy/overcast days make for beautiful photos.
