Amanda is one of the coolest people I know, and I am lucky to call her my 'Lil Sis.' I've known this girl since she was a starry eyed college freshmen with a contagious smile. She still has that same great smile, but now she is a kick ass mom with a sweet family of her own. How we've all grown up! It was a pleasure to spend a Sunday afternnoon with them and photograph baby Quinn, one of the most photogenic babies ever. Little miss could seriously be a baby model!
Can't believe I've known this guy for over 20 years! He's one of my elementary school buds and actually one of my very first photo shoot victims from the early 2000s. Somewhere in my attic are black and white prints of this guy from when I was a total noob at photography. I think the photo shoot went something like this: "Hey Hannibal can you climb into this tree and do a Calvin Klein pose." Seriously I had no idea what I was doing back then--in photography and life (but I digress.) Well fast forward to 2016 and things are coming full circle as I get a chance to photograph Hannibal once again. This time he brought his beautiful wife Lily and their super sweet preschooler Clara. We had a blast roaming Ardenwood farms and making friend with the goats and sheep. No CK posing this time. Just genuine smiles, hugs, and laughter as the Atanque family showed me how connected they are. I adored photographing their little family and seeing all the love.
Thanks Atanque Family for the fun Sunday at the farm. Check out the photos below!
Last Saturday I had so much fun photographing this cozy casual in home maternity session. Meet Julina and Lloyd. These highschool sweethearts fell in love 14 years ago and woke up one morning last year and decided to tie the knot that same day. It's been just the two of them for so long, but not for much longer. In just a few weeks this awesome twosome is going to become a family with the addition of a cute Vietnapino/Flipnamese baby boy. Check out the beautiful photos!
Thank you Julina and Lloyd for welcoming me into your home to capture this short lived but special time in your lives. You two were beautiful to photograph and will be amazing parents to baby Filip!
