in newborns

This was my first trip to Tiburon for this family’s professional newborn portraits and what a treat it was! They mentioned having a pretty little church at the top of the hill near their home, so we drove up to visit it. How perfect!

What an ideal spot with pretty little paths amongst the tall grass.

I can’t imagine what the marketing guys at Subaru did to create such a strong sense of pride and camaraderie amongst their customers, but I even treat strangers more nicely when I see them getting out of a Subaru! Lol! So, of course, we had to include their car in the picture for a complete “family portrait”.

this family is a fan of their subaru tooAnd back at home…

“Wow. These are stunning…and they absolutely made me cry! I couldn’t help but flash forward and imagine her wedding when somebody other than Mom and Dad will be kissing her. Thank you so much for taking the time to come out and give us this gift. They’re truly beautiful.”
