Foothills Park Engagement Photography - Lynn and Daniel

Last month, Lynn and Daniel invited me to their home in the Palo Alto Foothills for their engagement session. Before I even got to their front door, I was greeted by their energetic pup, Koda. And as I stepped inside their home, I met Lynn and Daniel's other fur baby, their cat Baloo.After some quick dinner prep,

Lynn and Daniel brought me to the gazebo in their backyard. En route to the top of the hill, I may have inadvertently fallen and bruised my thigh... But, rest assured, the camera was okay, and that’s what really matters!

The average person goes to Disneyland maybe a few times in their lifetime. But if your family is like mine, then you plan your entire year around the multiple Disneyland trips you’ll be making. Trang and Jacob are those kinds of people too.

Holly and Cody first met in the most awesome way possible: while having a few pints at The Davis Beer Shoppe. And when I met up with the couple to discuss photography for their upcoming wedding, we chatted over some daytime beers on a Friday afternoon. So when Holly and Cody arrived at Drake's Beach in Point Reyes for their engagement session, naturally Cody had a can of beer in hand.

Ever since our very first email correspondence, I had an instant connection with Namphuong and Jeff. And upon first meeting them at my all-time favorite East Bay gastropub, Hog's Apothecary, I confirmed that we were kindred spirits. Over craft beers and delicious grub, we chatted about anything and everything. I found out that we share a common love for travel, photography, and food. We share the sentiment that, if it weren't for our families in the Bay Area, we'd probably live in Portland, Oregon. And, somehow, the one place where they wanted to take their engagement photos just so happened to be the one place that I've been dying to shoot at.

This family has a special place in my heart. Possibly it's because Mike and Jehn photographed my own wedding. Or perhaps it's because their oldest, Royce, shares my love for LEGOs and is best buds with my puppy, Henri. Or maybe it's because little Sebastian is so stinkin' adorable and acknowledges me as "Mr. Reggie". The list just goes on.

Two Sundays ago, I made my way over to Junipero Serra Park in San Bruno to spend the morning with one very adorable family. The weather was just right, and the light was perfect. And the family? Well, they were sweet, silly, and everything in between. What more could a photographer ask for? Nothing really.
