Newborn baby boy at Christmas time photo session

Baby John was such a cutie at only just shy of three weeks old. I love that Melissa and Craig wanted to do the session during that fresh newborn baby stage-it is hard when you are so tired and still recovering from delivery, but it is soooo worth it! Fresh babies are not only cute they are sleepy and easy to photograph. During the shoot we really just needed to keep him warm with all the those cute outfit changes. Because it was right before Christmas, we had a cute crocheted Santa hat and pouch that he just fit perfectly in. Melissa also had gotten him an adorable bow tie and suspenders in Christmas colors that was just too stinking cute and I loved that it was a little too big for him as well. They are such a cute family complete with little fluffy doggie and I am so happy for them! Congratulations on your sweet baby boy. Enjoy!

Family Portrait Day in the park

This past family portrait mini session day was at Hap Magee Ranch Park in Danville. It is such a great spot for doing portraits and especially when you are working with multiple families and you want variety in one place. The only thing is that you are not the only photographer and family there shooting at the same time, however the park has so many options and is big there was no issues ( and of course everyone is respectful of others!) I love the big Oak tree and I love the heart on it-makes for a great spot to show love between loved ones. I also love the fall colors here-there are some amazing trees with so many pretty colors-it is great for fall family photos. I photographed three families here at this park and they were all different: toddler, baby and family of six including a doggie!! Let’s just say, I was kept plenty busy. I can’t wait till next fall for my next family portrait  mini session day! family photo mini session four kids dog Hap Magee Ranch Park fall leaves family photo mini session four kids dog Hap Magee Ranch Park family photo mini session four kids dog Hap Magee Ranch Park family photo mini session four kids dog Hap Magee Ranch Park family photo mini session toddler Hap Magee Ranch Park family photo mini session toddler Hap Magee Ranch Park family photo mini session toddler Hap Magee Ranch Park family photo mini session toddler Hap Magee Ranch Park family photo mini session baby Hap Magee Ranch Park family photo mini session baby Hap Magee Ranch Park family photo mini session baby Hap Magee Ranch Park

Redheads are adorable, and if you add in some dimples, you just can’t get any cuter! Baby Jules will be turning one this month, so he was desperately in need of some portraits to capture his baby self, before he becomes a full fledged toddler.  The Wilson Family was signed up to do the family portrait session down at China Camp, but first I headed to their home to get some shots of Jules in his element! Julian was in a great mood when I arrived which is always awesome and we had fun hanging in his room for a few before mom got him dressed to go outside and play!
