Palo Alto Gamble Garden Family Photography | DeStefani Family

Before 2018 ended I met up with the DeStefani family at one of my favorite spots in Palo Alto.  I think I've done photo sessions at Gamble Garden during all four seasons, and each time, the place looks a little different, which provides some new photo spots that I get to explore.

The family decided to do a photo session because the parents will be celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary, and having the whole family together is definitely a great way to commemorate this special event.

San Ramon Pleasanton Park Family Photography | Chan Family

Fall is my second favorite season (right behind winter) of the year for its beautiful colors and pleasant weather.  I also love that it's the holiday season, and that's when I see a lot of families come out to different places to get their holiday photos done.

I had the pleasure of meeting up with the Chan family at San Ramon's Central Park one Saturday, and even though there weren't as many trees as we had hoped with fall colors there were still a few spots that provided that fall feeling.  To finish off the session we headed over to one more popular photo spot in Pleasanton to include one of my favorite things: a wooden bridge.  It was fun capturing all the smiles of this family, and I have to give a shout out to the youngest as he did so well following directions for over an hour.

Dublin Emerald Glen Park 3rd Birthday Children Photography | Avery

The day we went to Emerald Glen Park in Dublin to do Avery's 3rd birthday photos, it was really windy, which was unexpected.  Avery had a hard time holding up the photo frame by herself as the wind kept blowing it out of her hands, but we managed to get a few of her with it.  She had a Peppa Pig themed birthday party, and she loved having Peppa and George with her during the session.

Fremont Park 3rd Pre-Birthday Children Photography | Avery

It wasn't that long ago that Avery had her first session as a newborn, and now she's already 3 years old!  We tried getting a few photos for her birthday invitation at a local park in Fremont, and the yellow flowers and lighting provided a nice backdrop.  There were lots of dandelions around so Avery had fun picking and blowing them.

Hayward Family Newborn Photography | Matusow Family

Last month I had the opportunity to meet the newest addition to the family, Baby N!  I feel like it wasn't that long ago when I did Big Brother B's birthday session so it was exciting to meet the little sister.  She arrived a bit early, but what's interesting is that her birthday is just a few days after her big brother's birthday.  Here are a couple of favorites from the session.

Fremont Shinn Park & Arboretum Family Photography | Matusow Family

With the amount of rain we were getting during the winter, we were afraid that we would have to reschedule this family session.  Luckily, it was a nice sunny day when I met up with the Matusow family at Shinn Park & Arboretum in Fremont.  There were lots to celebrate at this session as their little cutie is turning 3 and he's going to be a big brother too!

Fremont Niles Holiday Family Photography | Avery

This post is a bit late, but it's always better late than never.  Here are some fun photos of Avery from her family's holiday session in Fremont.  The photos were done at a small park in the Niles area that has some beautiful lighting at the right time of day.  Luckily, Avery was also in a playful mood that day.
