I’ve gotten to photograph the sweet family three times now, and each time it just gets better and better. I was so thrilled to hear that they were expecting their third last summer. They told me when I did a mini session for them in the Olive grove, check out that session here. So obviously I was excited when they contacted me to take some newborn photos for them this past winter in their home. Things like these are such a highlight for me as a Bay Area newborn photographer, I love getting to see my sweet clients welcome new babes into this world!

They so graciously invited me into their gorgeous home, that they just finished renovating. It was seriously such a dream to step into. I had heard about their renovation at their past sessions and was so excited to see that it was finally finished. I’ve never done a home renovation myself, but i’ve heard several times that it can be quite the process, so I loved getting to see that it was all finally finished for them! 

They welcomed as sweet baby boy into this world and his older sister and brother are seriously so cute with him. I think they’re going to be the best siblings, and i’m sure he will gets lots of attention and love from them. For their wardrobe they chose to focus on earth tones. All of their outfits really helped to complement that neutral style that I love photographing. I always say it but neutral colors really help the focus in photographs to be on the subjects being photographed!

As always, photovision did an amazing job with my film scans. I shot Portra 800 at this session since it was inside and quite gloomy out that day!
