We are one week away from my favorite mini session event at Ruby's Garden! Not only do I get to giggle with some of the Bay's funniest kids, but I also get to work in my favorite children's clothing boutique.  Most of my favorite pieces for portrait sessions come from Ruby's Garden. When I saw the Joules Clothing dress Susana is wearing, I did a happy dance in the store.  Yes, this 5'10" mom jumped up and down in the store while clapping her hands.  What can I say?  I REALLY enjoy dressing my kids for photo shoots.  Book your session today!

Welcoming Baby Monty http://www.saramariephotography.com/blog/2015/1/welcoming-baby-monty First of all I would like to thank this family for allowing me to be apart of baby Monty's birth.

 

 This sweet boy waisted no time coming into this world.  I received the phone call from aunty to be at 7am.  I quickly dressed my two kids and drove them over to my mother's house, then headed to the hospital.  Mom did the majority of her laboring at home, so by the time I arrived at he hospital she was in full active labor.  With the support of dad, family, and an amazing L&D staff, mom delivered a healthy baby boy right before 9am.

A Beautiful Baptism for Baby Joey http://www.saramariephotography.com/blog/2014/10/a-beautiful-baptism-for-baby-joseph I absolutely love photographing this family!  The joy and love this family has for each other radiates from their images.  I am so honored of my nickname given by the family as "Joey's Personal Photographer".  It has been amazing documenting his first year with my Bumps to Babes package.

A Walk In Rainy San Francisco http://www.saramariephotography.com/blog/2014/8/a-walk-in-rainy-san-francisco   I photographed these images while taking a lovely walk around the City with my sweet husband on our 13th anniversary.  I love street photography, and I often find myself too busy to slow down and take a short walk with my camera.  Sure I will snap a few phone pics of "Instagramable" moments to post throughout the week.  Slowing down to take in my surroundings, while clearing my mind, can be challenging, but it is worth it.

A Little Zen http://www.saramariephotography.com/blog/2014/8/a-little-zen The Hubby and I took a wonderful trip with my Zumba Family to Tulum.  It was amazing.  Beautiful people, lots of samba, salsa, zumba, and drumming on the beach.  PLUS we were lucky enough to take a couple of yoga classes by the amazing Sammie Host.  Sammie is one of the sweetest Yogis I know, and her classes were amazing.  Her calm voice guiding us into our different poses, while the waves crashed in the background and the tropical birds sang songs in the wind was BLISS!  When she asked me if I was willing to work while on vacation, I was just Zen enough to say yes!

The W Family session http://www.saramariephotography.com/blog/2014/8/the-w-family-session  

 

I absolutely loved meeting this sweet family at their home, which happened to be a  great backdrop for their family session.  I don't think I have ever met three siblings who were so caring with each other.  It was so much fun capturing the little moments this family shared together.

 

 

 

These two sisters are just so sweet, not the typical big sis little sis relationship.

 

 

Thank you W Family!!!

The Day I Photographed Houses for studio M MERGE http://www.saramariephotography.com/blog/2014/8/the-day-i-photographed-houses-for-studio-m-merge Whenever it is time to decorate a new place, or revamp an old space, I go to the store and purchase an insane amount of Home Decor magazines.  I can't get enough of them!  The beautiful glossy pages are filled with amazing shots of perfect spaces.  As a photographer I love taking apart images, and trying to figure out how exactly it was shot. It is super fun, try it next time you pick up a magazine.  When I got the opportunity to work with the amazing creators of studio M MERGE  I was over joyed.  These amazing women do wonders with spaces, and I had a blast photographing their work.

Princess Jeniya: Bay Area Lifestyle Photographer http://www.saramariephotography.com/blog/2014/5/princess-jeniya What did I do when I was called to photograph a princess?  Grabbed a pink tutu, a hat box, and checked to see if Mom had a tiara.  This beautiful little girl sent me packing and off to Los Angeles!  I had a blast photographing her in her beautiful room, that rightful showed off her royal status.  When it came time for the hat box, I pulled out my special flower head piece (made by me and inspired by Pinterest) to make the whole look pop.  One look at this princesses' mother and you know where she gets all her beauty from.

Sweet 4 Month old Session: Bay Area Lifestyle Photographer http://www.saramariephotography.com/blog/2014/5/sweet-4-month-old-session I absolutely loved photographing this family in their lovely home.  There is also something special about photographing a family in their own home using their surrounding to tell a story.  Baby Oliver kept the smiles coming for the while session, which is very good for a 4 month old.

Sanchez Family Session: Bay Area Lifestyle Photographer http://www.saramariephotography.com/blog/2014/5/fun-family-session  

I have to say this family kept my laughing the whole session!  Viviana's wonderful performance of Let It Go had us all twirling and singing along.  While taking a few lovely father daughter photos, sweet Thomas started "photo bombing" which made for an hilarious moment.
