My first maternity shoot.

In Uncategorized on March 14, 2013 at 8:32 am

I am so grateful to have met Kathy and Joeri.  Their warm spirits, sense of adventure, great sense of humor and sweet tenderness towards each other makes them such a fun couple to work with!
I shot their engagement photos in 2011 and it was such a blast despite the rainy, overcast day.

mwah!

They contacted me again recently and said they were expecting a baby – would I do a maternity shoot for them?  My answer: “OF COURSE!!!”
We had perfect weather for this shoot – a little cloudy but nice and bright with no direct shadows.  The Berkeley Marina turned out to be the perfect place with plenty of trees and beautiful backdrops for the gorgeous little family.

Meatball is here too!

I am so happy for Kathy and Joeri and so honored to be able to document and share this moment with them.
Oh yes, and one more thing…

It’s a girl!

 

 

 

 

Pick that camera up!

I’ve been kind of lazy with my camera for a while now, taking shots mostly with my iphone.  After shooting with my good friends Nikolai and Geneva I decided that I needed to do this more often!

As luck would have it, it just so happened that the couple I did engagement shots for in 2011 (Kathy and Joeri and their pup Meatball) were expecting a baby and they wanted me to do a session with them!
Of course I said yes, and we had a wonderful day at the Berkeley Marina.
I’m still in the first stages of editing, but here’s a sneak peek of the lovely family.
