Miss Claire was such a sweet little peanut! She had a clear preference for soft, furry blankets (as told by the disappearing scowl when we placed her on them), so we made sure she was nice and comfy once we figured that out :).
I photographed Owen's big brother Luke just over a year ago! It was really great to meet this handsome fella and chat with his mama again.
When I was posting these pictures I looked back at Luke's newborn pictures and realized we had a similar shot of the two. Here's Luke as a newborn:
While I love Houston, San Francisco won for weather while I was there in December. I was so afraid it would be too cold, but it was absolutely perfect. So take note, SF in August: Freezing; SF in December: Wonderful. I love this city!
I know this great family because I've been photographing Christina's sister's family in Houston for years! I've been able to photograph Christina's family in Houston a few times as well, but she really wanted some iconic San Francisco shots while they were living close to the city. I believe we succeeded :).
Ethan is another little guy who I got to photograph first when he was just a wee one kicking on his mama's bladder! I first met his parents back in October on a beautiful Houston fall day (but let's be honest, she could be wearing that same dress this week. I do love Houston winters!).
I sure do love parents with a sense of humor! If you look close you'll see Ethan's outfit is covered in mustaches as well :).
I really love photographing older siblings with newborns, especially when they're old enough to follow directions ;). This beautiful little lady was such a delight to photograph and get to know and it didn't even phase her when her naked baby brother had an accident while she was holding him! I know plenty of adults who wouldn't handle that as well as she did!
