It was just a little over a year ago I had the honor of shooting this beautiful couples City Hall wedding. Needless to say, I was over the moon to hear from Maya that they also would love me to shoot their maternity session as well as arrival of Baby Taylor. Here's some of my favorite photos from their lovely Sutro Baths Maternity Session! I hope you love them as much as I do. Stay tuned for more photos of Baby Taylor... xo

Erin & Josh are Getting Married! | San Francisco Engagement Photography

Erin & Josh are Getting Married! | San Francisco Engagement Photography

"Josh and I met in San Francisco three and a half years ago. We had our first date at a local brewery downtown and hit it off instantly. He is a southern gentleman from Louisiana & Texas, and I’m a southern California girl. I pretty much fell for him right away. Josh has the sweetest eyes and best personality. He always makes me feel special and tells me I look beautiful, even first thing in the morning. I found a needle in the haystack and will never let him go.

The past few years have been tough with the loss of my Dad. Before he left us, Josh made sure my Dad knew he would always take care of me. He wasn’t able to ask my Dad for my hand, but he did one better and asked my Grandpa who cried and said “Yes, of course,” and “Finally!” Several months passed, we looked at some rings and I finally found the one!

It is really hard to surprise me, so when it came to the proposal Josh had to be creative and do it when I least expected. In June, I was planning my sister’s baby shower in Orange County and he knew that would be the best time to do it. He also knows how much family means to me and wanted them to witness this moment. While I was standing near my grandparents Josh came over and was waiting for my Grandpa to ask the famous question that he would ask every time we saw him - “So when are you marrying my granddaughter?”, Josh responded by placing his hand on his back while saying, “well you know she’s a real pain in my back!”  He then kneels down in fake pain to one knee and pulls the ring from his front pocket to pop the question. I was in such shock, I just kept asking “Are you serious?!” and of course I said “Yes!” It was such an amazing moment to share with my grandparents and my family.

Let the planning begin! Luckily I’m an event coordinator in the Bay Area, so I know some great spots that both Josh and I enjoy. When it came to choosing a location toshoot our engagement photos, we wanted to be in a place that we love and felt comfortable. We decided to shoot in our home in SoMa and at one of our favorite neighborhood bars, The Cavalier. We were lucky to find Tumay from Tiny Forest Photography to shoot our engagement photos. She has the same esthetic as we do, so I knew our shoot would capture who we are as a couple.

We plan to get married in Tiburon next Fall at a little white chapel on the hill and have our reception in a garden right on the bay. It’s going to be an amazing time celebrated with our family and friends. 2017 is going to me a magical year… I get to marry my better half." - Erin Berenda

This is hands down one of my favorite families to photograph! I've been capturing Emerson's cuteness since her first birthday. It's been such a fun journey to watch her grow into a happy little girl. Emerson was a joyful, smart and a beautiful little model. I always love my sessions with this fun family and this one was no exception. I can't wait for our next session!

I am still swooning over this newborn photo session! I couldn't wait to blog about it. Will you look at the sweetness of those eyes?

My biggest goal as a newborn photographer is to be able to capture the connection between the family members & to tell a story. I want my clients to look back years later and remember the feeling of welcoming a baby into their life. The energy between these three was so strong that I had no trouble capturing it! I hope you enjoy these photographs as much as I enjoyed taking them.

3 REASONS TO CHOOSE LIFESTYLE NEWBORN PHOTOGRAPHY

Comment

3 REASONS TO CHOOSE LIFESTYLE NEWBORN PHOTOGRAPHY

1. DETAILS MATTER:
 

Unlike posed newborn photography, lifestyle newborn photography is not just about the sleeping babies, curled and molded into baskets; but it’s about the interactions and the love the parents feel for their new arrival. These sessions are where you can really get a true sense of family in their home. So I capture away those details. From an intimate hug between the mother and the baby to a lovely crib hanging that got gifted from a family friend.

2. YOUR HOME AS OUR BACKDROP:

One of the reasons I love lifestyle newborn sessions over the posed ones is I have the whole house as my backdrop instead of just a seamless paper. This gives me so much more room to work with! My job is to capture memories and I can’t think of a better place to capture those precious memories than baby's first home.
 

3. NO TIME FRAME:

When you schedule a lifestyle newborn session, the session can take place anytime within the first 7 weeks after the baby is born. Because the sessions are focused on interaction, the baby does not need to be under 10 days old in order to ensure their sleepy, squishy bodies can maintain curled positions. I’ve had some of my favorite sessions with babies 4 weeks and older.

Welcome Magnolia Thomas | San Diego Newborn Photographer

Welcome Magnolia Thomas | San Diego Newborn Photographer

"A day in the life of the Thomas family… Ha ha let's be real I was sweating profusely, my husband was on his lunch break, Magnolia woke up with goopy eyes and the house was a mess 5 mins before Tumay arrived.  But Colbie, hundred percent herself except she would've preferred her frisbee be in every shot.

But honestly it felt so good to take a shower and put real clothes on. I love the way Tumay helped us capture these photos that portray our happy family and importantly, our first daughter Chloe was perfectly remembered in this session. We will forever cherish these days and we will have these photos to remind us of this special time." Jenn Thomas

Welcome Jack | San Francisco Newborn + Maternity Photographer

Welcome Jack | San Francisco Newborn + Maternity Photographer

Caroline and Bryan reached out to me looking for a family photographer that could capture not only their maternity session but also the arrival of their son Jack. We decided to shoot their maternity session in the Presidio where Caroline and Bryan got married. The Golden Gate Bridge and Park Presidio made a wonderful backdrop for their photoshoot and was a great choice to highlight their years in San Francisco.

It was such an honor to document this wonderful couple welcome their son Jack. He was an alert, happy and a curious little model who loved the spotlight. This was such a fun shoot and the love between the three of them was so natural that it was easy to capture. 

Caroline and Bryan's life has forever been changed by this incredible gift and they thank their lucky stars! I know that they will cherish these belly to baby photographs always!

Jenn, Magnolia & Chloe

Jenn, Magnolia & Chloe

Hoping for a rainbow. A rainbow baby is a baby that is born alive after a loss. We lost our first baby girl, Chloe Rose at 33 weeks gestation she was 4lbs 14oz and 18inches long. She had daddy’s golden skin, mommy’s wavy hair, daddy’s surfer feet and mommy’s button nose — more beautiful than I could have ever imagined.

So they say every pregnancy is different and for me, this couldn’t be more true. With Chloe I was that overly happy, go-lucky, so excited and sometimes annoying pregnant lady. With this pregnancy I have felt disconnected and terrified. When Tumay and I started talking about taking some photos I was very hesitant. After a few weeks of contemplating the idea and almost canceling more than once, I had a moment of clarity. I realized I needed to do this, for this baby. This baby is here now, I don’t know what tomorrow will bring but today I have a living baby growing inside me and I will always have her as my second daughter and Chloe’s little sister.

Before we started taking the photos I expressed to Tumay that it was important to me to incorporate Chloe in the photos. We decided on taking some photos of the necklace that I wear everyday that has an imprint of Chloe’s thumb print. I now have a picture of me and my girls all together embracing my love for them both.

For me these photos capture my family, our story, our loss and our new life. I pray everyday that we will bring this baby into this world breathing and healthy. I am grateful for the opportunity brought with these images to bring light and beauty through our journey for me and my family.

We had an absolutely amazing time shooting for two days and were lucky to take advantage of Park Presidio during sunset and Mount Tamalpais during sunrise. This San Francisco Bay Area engagement session is breathtaking and their love shines through these photos.
