Holiday Session: The Couto Family, Stanislaus State University, Turlock, Ca.

This family session was so much fun! The Couto family is Laura (mom), Steve (dad) and Persephony, their adorable daughter. We met on a crisp Sunday afternoon for their shoot and had a great time!

One of my favorite families to photograph, they were so willing to have fun and be themselves. Persephony, "P" the name she usually goes by, was a doll! She was such a sweetheart, loved the camera and showed off some of her ballet skills while we were together, it was absolutely precious! Mom and Dad were so great for their own mini-shoot within the family shoot, they are very much in love! And Laura is absolutely beautiful, her style was so fun and cute!

I had to share my favorites from our time together, this family is sweet and loving, it was awesome!

Holiday Session: The Toledo Family, Turlock, Ca.

The Toledo Family was such a sweet family to work with.

We did their family portraits in the comfort of their home one Saturday morning in December because Mary (mom)had given birth to adorable Ethan 2 weeks prior to our shoot. And she looked fantastic for just having a baby, she had a beautiful glow and was dressed so cute for the session. Mary and Mark (dad) have an older son, Isaac, who is 2 years old and so darn cute! He was a little shy at first, but once we started snapping the camera away he opened up and had a huge burst of energy and had such a cute smile.

I had a great time during our shoot and I am so excited to be able to share this great family with you! Enjoy!

Holiday Session, The Wise Family, Stanford University, Palo Alto, Ca.

I absolutely loved this session!

I know I said the same thing about the family blog post before this, that it was one of my favorites, and it was, but I think I just loved this and every other holiday session I did this past December, hahaha!

What I loved about this family session was that I had the pleasure of working with the Wise family at Stanford University!  What a gorgeous campus, it was my first time visiting (which is weird because I am in the Bay Area quite often, but I've never ventured there) and it was incredible!  The grounds are gorgeous, the landscaping is impeccable, has a very classic college feel and it's very family friendly.

The Wise family is:  the beautiful Hayley (mom) and her 3 children, Kendall, Erin and Jonathan.  They are wonderful children and Hayley is so blessed to have such a beautiful family!  Working with Hayley on this session was so great, she was referred to me through my dear friend Anita, and I enjoyed planning this shoot with Hayley, she was so sweet and kind.

We did their session around the Main Quad at Stanford, on a gorgeous Sunday evening and had a wonderful time!

Enjoy my favorites!

Holiday Session: The Krieger Family, Stanislaus State, Turlock, Ca.

Meet the Kriegers. This was one of my most favorite family sessions during the holiday season! They were so fun to work with! We had some of the best fall color that day, what a blessing! The Kriegers are: Marin & Dustin (aka mom and dad) and their adorable children, Caleb, Britlynn and Addison. Such a cute family! We got together at Stanislaus State for their holiday portraits and had a great time. We were able to get some awesome family portraits and some fun pictures of the kids having fun with mom and dad. I also did a few snaps of Marin and Dustin, they were so sweet and totally in love! I loved it! Enjoy my favorites from the day!
