Maternity and Family Photos at Tilden Park

Last weekend, I got to photograph a good friend of mine and her family, as they come to the end of waiting for their little boy to arrive. What an amazing time to document in photographs! About to be parents of two, about to be a big sister, about to witness the miracle of life once again. We had a great time exploring the Botanic Garden, the weather was great, and the beauty of the belly was well-suited to the beauty of this lovely location. Like her parents, big sister is just as sweet as they come, and I can't wait to meet her baby brother!

Possibly the happiest little girl I know

I've known this little Missy since she was an itty bitty and I'm so in love with her. She says and does the cutest things in the cutest ways EVER! She and her whole family were lots of fun to photograph, and really, how could we NOT get great photos of a girl this beautiful and charismatic?! She just radiates joy and sweetness. It's rediculous, really ;-)

More Sisters

Here are a few more of my favorites from my fun afternoon with these two beautiful little ladies:

I should really be going to bed, but I could not resist sharing this picture immediately. Only sixteen months apart, it's obvious that these sisters are as close as can be. They are adorable, and such a kick to hang out with. I had a great time with these two today!

I was playing around and put a "seventies" treatment on a copy of this picture, which I think is adorable. The sisterly relationship could not be better illustrated than it is here.

Miss E. & Miss H:

It was not as cold it it looks!

Don't worry, we were not turning the babies into popsicles. Yesterday, I got to do one of my favorite things. I got to go to the beach! With friends! And take hundreds of pictures! We all had such a fun time together and the pictures came out great. Baby Sister was so intrigued by the sand that I got lots of pictures of the top of her head, along with some sweet, smiling and happy-baby pics, too. Big Sister could not have been cuter running away from the water (and falling in once) with her parents.

Newborn Bliss

I LOVE me some newborns. Love the tiny noses, rosebud mouths, flaky skin, wrinkly ankles, skinny legs, and absolutely pure sweetness. I was on cloud 9 when I left the session with my new BFF, Miss M. She just charmed me! I'm going out later to buy her a pony. I hope her parents have some hay onhand.

Family pictures at the park!

Even common city parks can provide a beautiful setting for pictures. These are some long-time, great friends of mine and here are a few shots from their family photo session at the park for Miss K's one-year pictures. After the park session, they decided to have an indoor session as well for more traditional portraits. You won't find sweeter, more fun people anywhere!

Baby J's 3-month Portraits

This little guy is such a doll! His parents and I had lots of fun during this shoot. He made some silly, adorable faces that cracked us all up.

Looking Back

In honor of Little Guy's 7-month birthday today, I decided to wander through some pictures of his first month. So recent, yet so long ago.

Welcome to the blog for Stinkyface Portraits! I am a photographer in the San Francisco Bay Area and I have made my studio mobile, so I can come to you to photograph your sweet stinkyfaces in a setting where they can be natural and comfortable. Whether playing at a park or garden, or with toys at home, we will capture those sweet, innocent moments and expressions that are so fleeting in the lives of young ones. Sessions typically last between one and two hours, depending entirely on your child's willingness and happiness, and you get a DVD packed with images that you are free to reprint as you wish.
