I got to do a photoshoot with my friends Derek and Emily and sweet Baby Derek. I always love shooting with friends because I get excited being able to create something that they will love. This was their first family photoshoot together and we decided to do it in Walnut Creek at the library. Since it was a 104 degree day we wanted to stay in the shade as much as possible and then we ended it at the park getting beautiful candid shots of their family together.
Emily’s Mom and Dad showed up later as well which was a complete surprise but I was loving being able to include them in a couple candid pictures as well. I know that as a photographer we have to take the posed shots for families to have, but I think the beauty really lies in the small moments between people. Those are the ones that always make me smile as I’m editing and I’m so happy we were able to get a ton of those.
Derek and Emily – It means so much to me that you asked me to take those special first photos for your family. I hope whenever you look back on these it makes you smile and these photos are able to bring back those special moments every time.
