I saw this beautiful family become three and returned a week or so later to photograph them. One day if I ever leave San Francisco I’m sure I’ll be thankful for all the years working in tiny tiny apartments. There is always beautiful light to be found.
Jackie was the winner of my giveaway for World Breastfeeding Week. I walked into her adorable Bernal Heights home to the sweet little world she’s cultivating everyday. I’m here to photograph her breastfeeding and it seems there will be no problem timing that. He was up on all night and is in need of a lot of time on Mom this morning. I think we created something for Jackie that she will cherish forever, a reminder of this amazing and intense time in life.
I had the pleasure of documenting this sweet family with their long awaited baby Benjamin. I adore being in the calm of a house with a newborn family. We even took Benjamin up onto the roof for his first time. I really love to capture the 'place' in all my sessions. This baby was born here in San Francisco to two Canadians. This time and place is special and fleeting and will be the place of many stories that will be told again and again throughout his life.
The morning after Hazel made her grand entrance I returned to the hospital to capture the family in the light of day. I was crouched in the corner for the entrance of her very excited big brothers.
The older one was too excited to hold her. He felt the younger one should go first.
They were so curious. And so happy.
He would get lost in her, then come up for air and screech with excitement "baby, baby, baby!"
The beginning of a lifetime of being siblings.
And now their family is complete.
