Giving the gift of photos and memories to cherish is one that will always be on the top of my list. This might just be because it is so part of me but – if you think about it, It is hard to find someone who will not cherish good portraits of their loved ones.
I enjoy sharing time with families, especially when there are multiple generations. Danielle’s mother, brother and his wife visited from New Jersey. Danielle and her husband, John, are the parents of three beautiful girls. The last of their girls were just two months old during the shoot. Therefore this was a multi-generation family, newborn and Mother’s day session combined! Loving it!
I met the family at Ed Levin County Park
in Milpitas fairly early in the morning. When I drove to the location I couldn’t pass the beautiful reflection of the green rolling hills in the water! The sunrise provided beautiful golden light and the family was all dressed up for the occasion. Danielle did an awesome job of color co-ordinating her crew. Her pink pastel dress matched with the little girl’s dresses. John was also up to head and strutted his pink shirt. Grandma’s combination of pink and blue, played the mediator roll to Chris and his wife’s blue and white combination.
Everybody looked really awesome! Chris was full of fun and jokes. He teased Danielle like when they were teenagers. I loved the interaction between Grandma and her grand kids. Danielle also posed alone with her darling new baby A. The images of motherly love are light, lovely and touching. Chris and his wife posed for a few portraits and they look like newly weds (because they are:)!
Danielle and Chris, thank you for including me in your gift to your mother. It was honestly a pleasure and delight to share these moments with ya’ll. xx
