There’s nothing quite so sweet as a little baby girl dressed in a darling sweater romper, if you ask me! And i’ll say it all the time, this is the sweetest job because I get to meet all these darling babies and families and being their baby photographer! I absolutely loved getting to meet this family, they told me that they had planned on getting newborn photos done when their baby girl was born. But since we were in the middle of the pandemic at the time, they ended up waiting until later. It was so fun to be able to capture their first family photos at one of my mini sessions this past fall, and i’m so glad they booked one so that I could be their Bay Area baby photographer

Their sweet little girl was an absolute dream, I love photographing this age for babies because they’re at one of my favorite ages! They’re a little bit bigger than the newborn stage but they aren’t quite so big yet that they’ve lost that babyness to them. Plus they’re smiley and content to just be held by mom and dad! And let’s talk about how smitten mom and dad are by their little one, I love being able to capture new parents with their little ones!

I really loved all these photos, but some of my favorite ones are a baby girl and her mama… There’s just something so sweet and special about motherhood that I love so much, especially since becoming a Mama myself. I really do cherish those photos of mom’s in their girls so much, whether i’m taking them or just looking at them they give me all the good feelings!
