as a family photographer, one of the things that i love the most is watching a family grow. from husband and wife to three to then four. spending time with them as they navigate through the haze of the newborn stages or crawling stage or full running around stage. i’ve been so fortunate to spend that time with this family through the years and i have seen their love, hugs, giggles and endless energy grow. that’s why i love what i do. spending the morning with each other, exploring a new location and having laughs and giggles over the twirls. and isn’t this location awesome?! this was the first time any of us has been to meek estate in hayward and we loved it! from the incredible mansion built in 1869 to the beautiful landscaped grounds, luscious green grass (which is rare for us to see in this drought so being able to run barefoot through the grass was fun), small apple orchard, and play structures, this location was perfect for this family session! enjoy the sneak peek!
