Baby Hattie

The newest edition to my friends’ family is little Hattie. I photographed her big sister Josie at the end of 2011, and at the end of 2012, just before Christmas, I had the pleasure of getting snap-happy with Hattie (love her name!).

And, like her older sister, Hattie showed off her lungs for me with a surprisingly loud wail that sounds more like a 6 month old than newborn. And I fully admit that I love pictures of crying babies. They unleash their full emotions, something that as an adult, I wish I could do more of. Here she is on the cusp of letting go. I love those in-between moments.

Justin lovingly dotes on his daughter, making sure she’s comfortable.

I adore this family of four.

Castro Photoshoot

Monday I found myself at a photoshoot doing some last-minute assisting for one of my photo partners, Mike Wang. He was updating some corporate portraits for a local SF biz and asked if I could come over for some last minute help. The shoot location was at a luxuriously beautiful Spanish-style home in the Castro, with a stunning view of the city.

This home has been used as a filming location in the past, and rumor has it that it’ll be featured in a reality TV-show, premiering in the fall on Bravo. Craziness!

I only had time to snap a couple photos with my iPhone since I was busy holding up reflectors overhead in the wind, getting a great workout for my arms, as well as figuring out lighting and some photo troubleshooting.

Two types of shots were taken of each person, one with the amazing city backdrop, the other with a plain blue backdrop (to compliment the company’s website colors). Here’s Mike in action:
