Like most San Franciscans, this family loves their Hayes Valley neighborhood. Not only is it the place they reside but it’s the place they’re raising their family. From the rice pudding and frozen yogurt shop, Loving Cup, to the streets and alleys they walk everyday. Every nook of this neighborhood is brimming with memories for them of their growing baby boy.
This session was especially fun for me because it was part of a giveaway I hosted many months ago. I was a panelist at a Golden Gate Mothers Group speaking to other moms and parents (I recall seeing at least one new dad there!) about entrepreneurism. I gave away one mini session to a lucky attendee. And this family won the lottery!
When the mom reached out to me she said she really wanted photos taken around their neighborhood with their almost 2 year old son. I loved the idea because urban lifestyle photography is one of my favorite genres to shoot. I was excited to hit the street with them.
Mom’s dress was a hit! I loved the pop of red and the way is flowed. Her son did too and thought it was hilarious trying to tug her around in it. He was such a little ham this guy. All smiles – but that could because he got to eat a cup of frozen yogurt at his favorite hot spot.
Below, are a few of my favorites from our time together. Enjoy!
