I took baby photos in the Presidio of this family of three and had a total blast. The dad and mom had a clear idea of what type of location they wanted for their photography session. They wanted nature and they really wanted a few photos that were San Francisco but not necessarily with the Golden Bridge in the background. The outskirts of Presidio park is surrounded by quintessential San Francisco: rolling streets, vista views where you can see the Palace of Fine Arts, the Bay and cityscape.
Now, all I’m going to say is if you don’t smile looking at these photos of this adorable baby girl then you have no heart. Her smile is so infectious! Of course the parents really wanted photos of her standing, but she had other plans. As in, there was no way in hell she was going to set foot on the ground. We tried everything. We took a timeout from shooting and the parents hung out with her while I made myself scarce. We tried getting her to stand on different types of ground such as gravel, dirt, the blanket, paved path – nada. I tried tricking her into playing games with me – nope. We even would toss her favorite toy a few feet away to see if she’d go for it. Nothing. She was a smart cookie and knew what we were up to the entire time. We made the best of it and I thought she totally rocked the session. Plus, standing is overrated in my book. In like 6 months that’s all she’ll be doing for the rest of her life and the parents will be looking for all those sitting photos and photos of them holding her. ha!
Despite that, was she a happy little cookie ready to laugh and play. I just loved seeing all her little teeth with that big smile. Well, just the two teeth on the bottom and the few up top, haha. So cute! I just adore these baby photos in the Presidio.
*Playing catch-up on my blog posts for basically the next month, ha! More past sessions coming soon, keep an eye out for your favorites.
