Fall Family Sessions - The Pecot Family

Monday, November 7, 2016

The Pecots not only got to have some beautiful fall color for their family session but a wedding anniversary to celebrate along with it!  I always love when my sessions offer more than capturing the love of a couple and a family with what they share but commemorate it as well.

She didn't know quite what to think with that big pile of crunchy things but with mom and dad right there to tickle her, she couldn't help but love it. 6 months down, many more new expereinces and adventures to go!

A car had just driven past on the dirt road behind them.  And that is one kind of dust that I welcome... the afternoon country light kind that each particle reflects the sun adding a bit of atmosphere.

Now she needs mom and dads help but before you know it she will be running fast than they can catch her!  Just try catching my toddler running loose through Target toward the toys.... this is how I get my workouts:)

Family Mini Sessions Fremont CA

So funny story... Ashley says to me, "So I am a yogi, and I thought it would be great to do a pose around that..." I had this second where all that seemed to come into my brain is Yogi bear:) Haha. I think our brains really do attach strongly to association... and since we were out in the woods, well, I just had that as something that came faster to my mind I guess. And I do yoga. Well, I am obviously not a pro with the correct terminology. Well anyway, I very quickly realized what she meant when she went for the pose. But don't worry, I am not that much of an idiot... most of the time.

Future yogi master... perhaps.

If you a guy with the love of a girl, you likely know that look that involves the scrunching of the nose... you know, that one where she can't contain how giddy she is, and when she is trying not to laugh so she just holds it in with that smile.

Fall Engagements - Ashley and Nelson - Bay Area Engagement Photographers

I really do feel blessed having been able to capture couples from coast to coast. The bay area may not get the same great color as North Carolina does with the fall season, but I obviously has its perks!

We were able to sqeeze these two love birds engagement session in before Nelson had to run and catch a plane for work! And the weather was perfect.

Look at this fall color. If I could collect a few perfect leafs, you know the ones? With the perfect array of color... and some how preserve it to last forever, I would... but then I have to wonder. If I had it to look at all the time, would I appreciate the fall season any less, if I saw it everyday would I not soak in that crisp fall air on a long walk with my family picking up and enjoying those pretty finds that only come for a short time each year... I just wonder. But I suppose that is why the fall season is so beautiful and I look forward to it each year.

I was sqwatting awkwardly in some bushes to be able to get this perfect angle up on this little hill for this particular shot. It is all about perspective but you would never guess what goes on behind the scenes. I love the light captured through the fall leaves of this picture and the lake water shining behind them. If you look closely, you can tell that there was some flooding up into the park. After a few heavy rain storms that would tend to happen.

Years ago at another park in Salt Lake City, I took a couple there for their formals and they wanted to take their shoes off, roll up his pants and wade through the water. It was beautiful, being part of nature and its unexpected addition to an otherwise perfectly planned setting. It was romantic, just wading through the water with their reflections. They made their way out to a bench among the water and it was as if they were sitting on a glass surrounded oasis of beauty. You can't plan something like that. Sometimes those moments come to you.

Only one day is left for the fall mini sessions I am doing this year!  You can of course book a regular session if you like to.  Goodness knows that even a few days of rain and feel like I am suddenly living in Ireland with the way the hills by my home green up.  It is so beautiful.  Seems like only a few weeks ago we were hiking up Mission Peak in Fremont, CA and came across a crawly friend (a trantula). But then it was all brown in the hills and now they are green.

East Bay Family Photographers

Friday, November 4, 2016

The run about and play sessions are always my favorite because that is where the warm smiles are at! The Smith's! Love this sweet family. And am still amazed at the fact that they both managed to go through school for their MBA's at the same time. That is like its own kind of super power.

This session was done all the way back in North Carolina. I feel like a bit of a bouncey ball having bounced clear across the country to the bay. So many wonderful expereinces everywhere in between.
I always love when my families are up for a leaf throwing fight.  It is natures confetti!

I had them be serious for one shot and they couldn't hold it for long before they both burst out laughing.

Curious and ready to explore this grand world. I love watching how a little toddler sees the world and wants to discover every wondrous bit of it! Reminds me to slow down and smell the roses.
