Referral for a Family Shoot

I love when a client becomes a client because of a referral.  I've been so grateful to all my family, friends and happy clients who have sent new client referrals to me, as it has really helped my business grow and flourish! 

This family was referred to me by my brother-in-law, Andy.  Andy is a builder/developer and Vivian is an architect.  They recently worked on a project together here in San Francisco.  When Andy learned that Vivian and her husband were looking for a family photographer, Andy told Vivian about me, gave her my website address and then, she emailed me. 

Vivian and I corresponded weeks in advance of the photo shoot, setting a tentative date, but the city had received a lot of rain the day we had planned.  So, we rescheduled and it turned out to be the day that Matt and I were to leave to go get married.  Thankfully, we were leaving on a red eye that night and a morning shoot was perfect!  I really wanted to make sure they had their photos done in time to send off their holiday cards to friends and family. 

We met at the Presidio, where I met her husband and their very cute boys, McCall and Anderson.  We took some shots there at the Presidio and then headed up to Golden Gate Park and went to Stow Lake where it was a bit warmer!  Here are some of my favorite shots from this shoot.  Thank you Andy for your kind referral and thank you Vivian for choosing me to be your family photographer! 

Thank you for reading my blog post today!

What a sweet family!

It's been awhile since my last posting.  I suppose a pretty big event happened between today and my last posting.... I got married!  :)  There will be a posting about the big event a little later.  :)  Today's posting is about a really cool baby shower gift, from one friend to another.

Molly received a family photo shoot from her friend Rhonda.  On a sunny, fall day, I headed down to San Mateo to photograph Molly's three beautiful children, Cavin, Declen and Nora.  Nora is the newest addition to the family and the boys just adore her! 

 This is Nora.  What a cute little grin!

We decided to go for a walk around the neighborhood with the Radio Flyer and pumpkins.
After playing in the grassy area, we decided to head towards the water.  Declen loved gathering rocks and throwing them into the water.  He searched all over for rocks and even found a secret garden spot.  At one point in time, he had filled his sweater with about 20 rocks.  We had him put some of them back, explaining that the rocks like to be in the dirt sometimes...  I don't think he quite understood.  :)
 On the hunt to find some rocks!
 Caven has such a cute smile!
 I love this series of pictures of Declen! 
 Declen picked this flower for Nora.  What a sweet brother!  I can tell that she will be greatly loved by both her big brothers!
