This newborn girl at home in Russian Hill was adorable. So dainty and cute. But don’t let her size fool you! She was a strong little girl who was the best escape artist I’ve seen. Within seconds of getting a tight swaddled her hand would break free. She seemed pretty happy about this trick too.
They lived in the cutest apartment in Russian Hill and clearly they have great taste in decor. The dad is from St. Martins Islands so there was lots of artwork and photos from there. It felt like being in a beachy-chic home. We took photos in their living room and bedroom. They had gorgeous light filtering in everywhere in their house. It was an oddly humid day in SF so we opened the windows to cool down. But also, a new mom’s harmones are out of wack and that doesn’t always help the tempature comfortably haha.
The mom is actually from Santa Cruz. Her parents live near the high school I attended which was a pretty cool thing for me to discover. Especially since I went to a small private boarding school that many people have heard of. But sure enough, she said my high school’s campus is where they’d go to vote. The mom didn’t seem very bohemian but as soon as she mentioned her parents are hippies and connected the dots on her laidback-sunny-beachy-outlook.
I had also photographed this couple for their maternity photos – we had so much fun frolicking around on a super foggy day at the beach. I just love how moody it looked! Check out their photos here: Russian Hill Couple Expecting Baby Girl | San Francisco Maternity Photographer
