I got an email a few months ago, asking if I'd fly to California for a newborn session. Umm, yes. I usually get those types of emails from moms... but this was from dad. I guess mom had casually mentioned that she wished I lived closer so I could do their photos (aww, sweet!). Dad, being the wonderful guy he is, contacted me and the scheming began. Mom is an fabulous photographer herself, and I couldn't have been more happy to meet her. So this is the lovely Helene and her amazingly gorgeous family. Planning a cross country newborn session can get tricky when you're not sure exactly when baby is going to arrive, but we pulled it off pretty darn well if I do say so myself. And what a lovely trip it was. I spent the day photographing, and then another couple of days touring San Francisco and the California coast with my hubster. And in the process, made some wonderful new friends. Aren't they gorgeous?!
big brother is such a sweet pie.
I couldn't decide which of these I loved more....
one happy family :)
