i can’t even begin to describe how amazing this family is! at the beginning of our consultation, mom mentioned that her family loved camping, adventure, dinosaurs and vintage flair. so based of that, we decided to create a perfect session for them. a san jose stylized camping adventure that was filled with (get ready for all the awesomeness): camping snuggles, no fire s’mores, chocolate milk, bird watching, dinosaur fighting, rock climbing, sunset twirls and to top it off, a climb up the hill to fly a kite and watch the sun dip away. seriously, they seemed to have brought magic with them from alameda (they were so awesome to make the trek down to this magical south san jose location as i’ve been wearing down as i enter the third trimester).
even the kite flying ended up being magical. the few days prior to the session, there was zero wind. so i was nervous that it would be moot to try and fly a kite. but on this lovely saturday, there was a slight breeze (which was perfect for the kite, not so much for the tent as that had a nice billow to it from the wind, haha oh well). and of course once we packed up and left, the sky turned a brilliant purple and pink with touches of cotton candy clouds! then the next few days? bad weather and cloudy days with no wind. our shoot day was perfect!
thank you so much for having me capture the magic and love of your family! i hope that you enjoy your sneak peek! though i will say that i had a hard time narrowing down this sneak peek, it could have easily turned in to your full gallery, there were that many photos that i absolutely loved and wanted to share right away with you 🙂
