Fremont Park 3rd Pre-Birthday Session | 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.

San Jose Kelley Park Japanese Friendship Garden | Harris Family

The Japanese Friendship Garden at Kelley Park is one of my favorite locations for families because there's so much space to use and a variety of backgrounds.  I also like to use parts of Kelley Park for a different kind of scenery.  On the Saturday that I met up with Diana and her family, we were lucky that there weren't many people around as usually there's an abundant number of families and couples walking the grounds.  It was nice that we were able to take our time to enjoy the fall weather and catch up since Diana and I use to work at the same school.

Fremont Shinn Park & Arboretum Family Photography | Philipps Family

Last month I met up with the Philipps family to do their annual photo session for their holiday cards.  We decided on Shinn Park & Arboretum in Fremont for its gorgeous fall colored leaves, vast trees and red barn for a perfect backdrop.  I always look forward to seeing the family as they know how to have fun, especially the kids, and everything is so natural for them.  I've known big sister C since she was a baby and it's amazing to see her growth each year along with her little brother J.

Palo Alto Gamble Garden Family Photography | Ho Family

Last year I had the pleasure to do a photo session for one of my former student's family, and this year I'm glad I had another opportunity to do it again.   I loved how mom dressed everyone up for last year's session, which you can check out here, and for this session I also loved how everyone looked in their black and white formal attire.  We met up one Sunday morning at Gamble Garden in Palo Alto, which is a place I've photographed at before several times.  I always enjoy coming back to this beautiful place because every time I would find new spots to shoot.
