San Jose fun family photographer – Photos by kim e » San Jose fun family photographer

awwwww this family! it’s one of the biggest honor to photograph a family as they grow through the years and i have been blessed to photograph this family through the years. watching the dynamics of their family and soaking in all of their love (plus maybe a bit of a workout keeping up with the three year old twins) is the best feeling!

our session was a bit more hybrid documentary/lifestyle/traditional family fun session. we started off at curiodyssey while i tagged along, no posing, no direction, just hanging out. it had been awhile since they’ve been there so it was a great place to roam and explore until we headed to coyote point for the lifestyle/traditional photos (those photos will be part two because, it was amazing).

when your friends are also photographers, you know that our playdates are going to be at a location that is part scouting/part play time. and that was this date at san jose’s egyptian rosicruician museum with tenley clark of tenley clark photography and maryam of hi plus hello photography.

this little oasis is tucked in the rose garden district and the grounds make you feel like you’re in another time and place. there’s a koi pond, pillars that create instant stages or hide and seek corners. there’s even a labyrinth that we missed, which just shows how big this place is. i’m waiting until my girls are a bit older to check out the museum though, i think that they might be a bit freaked out by the mummies!

i also shot all of this on my new-to-me lens, the canon 135mm which is a gorgeous, telephoto lens. i tend to shoot with my 35mm a lot for those nice wide shots but i love pushing myself into a different focal length and seeing how to work around it. this lens is very gorgeous (that bokeh, swoooooooon) but i don’t have too many wide shots of this awesome location. and speaking of this awesome, unique location, any family interested in their family session here?! yes?! email kim@photosbykime.com and let’s connect, let’s create, let’s play!

so i’m sorta, kinda, really bad at blogging. i mean, i feel like this kiddo here when it’s time for me to blog. i would love to try to get on top of it again, but between school, shuttling the girls between swim, gymnastics, sessions, editing, other business aspects of photography, something sometimes has to give…and that’s seems to have become blogging for me. i’m trying to get better 🙂

during my summer trip to los angeles, i photographed this sweet family and their morning adventure to their favorite park, lake balboa in the san fernando valley. (fun fact: dad and i met in the dorms of u.c. santa cruz, which was only like yesterday. yay banana slugs!)

there were bellies full of cookies and donuts, superhero chases and bubbles, rock climbing, and scooting and biking. including all of their favorites and incorporating it into their session is always a blast, they leave our session feeling like it was a big play date instead of a photo session. here are some of my favorites from this family fun session at lake balboa.

when one of the session suggestions was children’s fairyland in oakland and you learn that they’ve never been, it’s the perfect place for their family fun session!

we met before the park opened and even though the front of the park was under construction, we found this little grove next to the construction. we looked for squirrels in the holes, twirled and danced before the opening of the park.

once it opened, we explored. there are hidden slides, trains, rides, hills, so much fun around every nook that we still only saw a small part of it before it was naptime. another visit is definitely in the cards for them (and my family too!)

i’ve been internet friends with mom for a few years and i love watching their family’s adventure to different amusement parks. so when the time came to put together their family session, what better place then santa cruz boardwalk? (okay disneyland, one day haha!) this session was originally planned during the fall but life and weather just kept getting in the way. however when we finally made the timing work, it was perfect timing. our santa cruz family lifestyle adventure at the boardwalk included games, snuggles, churros, photobooths and a whole lot of family love.

thank you so much for heading all the way to santa cruz to enjoy an evening (and for entering the contest, whoooooooooo) and hope you enjoy some of my personal favorites!
