Benicia Family Photography - Gabe Turns Two

A year ago, we met Gabriel here on the blog. Back then, he was cute, adorable, and well... stationary. Today, Gabe is just as cute and adorable as he's ever been, but there's one notable difference: he's mobile. I'm not talking about leisurely strolling. He's fast. He runs, jumps, and climbs to his heart's desire. And as for me, the lucky photographer who gets to try and keep up with him? Well, I'm pretty sure I'm ready to be the next American Ninja Warrior.

San Francisco Engagement Photography - Christine and Reynaldo

For those of you who don't already know: Reynaldo (or JR as I call him) is my older brother, and Christine is his lovely bride-to-be. To start of this post, let me tell you a couple of things about them. First, they're Sharks fans -- so thanks to Christine for sacrificing valuable Sharks playoff time to pose for my camera. And second they can endlessly exchange 90's movie quotes -- like endlessly! Which comes useful, when trying to get my brother to have a natural smile (haha). Well this past Sunday, I spent the evening with them at the Palace of Fine Arts in San Francisco.

Everything happens for a reason. When Justin and Sheila -- who will be welcoming a little one into their lives next year -- contacted me to capture this amazing time in their lives, everything fell into place effortlessly. I couldn't pass this opportunity up; it was almost too easy.
