Let’s talk about this sweet family, this beautiful mama, and her darling kiddos! What a dream for this Bay Area Newborn Photographer! Add in their home which was not only beautifully decorated, but had the most amazing natural light! Taking some newborn photos of sweet Aiden as well as photos of all of them together as a family of 5, was such a joy!! 

When I was at their home I was reminded that I took their engagement photos years and years ago, seeing one of the photos from their session framed in their home was such a throwback for me! It’s funny for me to think about how I used to be an engagement and wedding photographer back in the day. It seems like such a long time ago. This is especially true since I was in such a different phase of life back then. But, I digress.

I chose to take most of their photos by their back door, where the lighting was ample and shining through! Usually I don’t focus too much on the location that we photograph in, although it does matter somewhat. What is more imporatant is to find the best lighting and stick there. Because for me, beautiful light means amazon photos. Even if those photos are taken on the ground, or at the kitchen table. Speaking of the kitchen table, those photos of them hanging out there are some of my favorites from their session! I’ve been striving to capture some natural occurrences during sessions, and the family around the kitchen table seemed like the perfect fit for this session. Enjoy!
