Sighhhhhh....It's days like this one that fill my cup so full that I go to sleep with tears of gratitude in my eyes.  This family is sooo delicious. Gorgeous California light floods their home in Mill Valley all morning, their yard is full of lilacs and a magnolia tree, their Bernice Mountain dog named Dewey rounds out the greatness.  Little Natalie is a DOLL!!  She's so sweet and curious and beautiful and kind and giggly and happy.  She's very excited about her new sister, Kate, who got to earth only last month.  The lovely mama, Amy, is a marine biologist so when we wanted an adventure, a trip to Stinson Beach was the obvious answer.  There, they played with crabs and jumped rope with bull kelp. Adam, the papa, is just the jungle gym that Natalie needs to climb on and love.  I thought I died and went to heaven.
One of my favorite families of all time.  Thank you endlessly for letting me document a day in your lives.  I hope I remember this day forever.

Yaay! Back for another year to photograph the growing McMahon family.  Since our last shoot last year (HERE), little Ava has entered the world.  She's as cute as a little round button and big sis Emily seems happy to have a new friend around.  Like all young families, they're a very busy crew, but unlike lots of families they live surrounded by fruit and fig trees, artichoke bushes, and an herb garden.  What a great place to grow up!  After harvesting all sorts of fruit we headed out to tu-tu school where cute comes in buckets. Lots of cuties in tutus and lots of french spoken. It was super sweet. Sunset was spent in the McMahon's favorite place: the beach, and dinner was at their favorite pizza place in San Francisco. Melt down? Oh, that happened in the tub!
What a day. Thank you. Enjoy. Love. Obv.

I cannot remember having a baby crush like the one I have on Heidi.  She's the kindof cute you try to eat.  She's round and sweet and adorable and...insanely cute.  Her big brother, Andrew, all of 3 years old is wise and curious and keenly focused on all things car.  We had such a wonderful day in Corte Madera, CA.  I arrived when Andrew was getting dressed for church and Sunday school and Heidi was having a tea party with her stuffed animals.  It was another 80 degree day so after a really sweet time at Sunday school we headed out for a picnic at The Discovery Museum in Sausalito.  Everyone chased each other around and enjoyed the amazing weather.  Because I was a good kid ;), I got a ride home in their reeeeeeally nice car.  I might drive a hybrid now, but a ferrari is surely my next car.
Thank you all for a beautiful day with your gorgeous family.  It was such an honor to be with you.
