Lacy Park at Sunset - Bergeron Family

I met this beautiful family at Lacy Park for our family session and it proved to be the perfect backdrop for sunset photos. I immediately fell in love with this location, landscaped with grand old oaks, sycamores, and palm groves, but the real treat was the rose arbor that filled the air with an intoxicating perfumed scent of roses.

The Bergerons were picture perfect and absolutely amazing to work with. Here are a few photos from our sunset session.

Bringing Up Bebe - Sanaz and Babak

This maternity session was especially meaningful to me because Sanaz is not only one of the best friends I've ever had but one of the best people I've ever known. There are many defining moments in a relationship, but one of the most important ones is that very first moment. Sanaz and I had ours in 2004 at the place where we both worked. As she passed me in the hallway, I complimented her on her top. That compliment would be the catalyst for a wonderful friendship.

When she told me she and Babak were expecting, I thought, "YAY I'm going to be an auntie!" I couldn't have been happier for them.

She chose to begin the session in their lovely home and then we moved on to Temescal Canyon for some gorgeous nature shots.

Baby Amelia has since made her grand entrance into the world so congratulations to Sanaz and Babak! Here are some photos from the time just before their family of 2 became a family of 3.
