Hilary & Sam are good friends with my fiance and me, and decided last year that they would buy Sam’s sister Kate a gift certificate for Christmas. She, her husband, and their son Jackson live in Southern California, but Kate is from Sonoma County and was excited to have photos taken in her hometown. We actually met at my house, and got some shots on our property and in the vineyards across the street. The light was gorgeous, but not nearly as gorgeous as my models. Little Jack was amazing, and so smiley and happy (with a lot of help from Auntie Hilary).
Thanks guys, I had so much fun <3
Oh, also, Kate wrote an AMAZING blog post that I think all Mommies should read (especially if you are a new mommy, and hesitant to get your photos done). I loved it:
