Spring Mini-Session San Jose Cupertino

Spring Mini-Session in San Jose and Cupertino area sounds very intriquing. I’m already making a list of places I want to go to, and shoot like RIGHT NOW! Well, maybe not right now, as it’s raining. But tomorrow!!! Definitely! Already charging my batteries…

There is so much beautiful things blooming, the world is so green… Gosh, I’ve been locked in my garage studio for way too long. I have emerged very recently to notice how the world around my has changed… And now I’m going crazy. I’ve already scheduled to sessions for this week, and I want more!!!

I could not resist of some “mommy and me” pictures. The kids grow so fast, and their attitude towards being hugged, giving hugs and being in front of the camera changes a lot. It’s getting harder and harder to get the real emotions from them. They used to not even notice the camera, these days, I can see their behavior changing as soon as I point the camera at them. It’s cute, but it’s different. So, I jump in front of the camera with them every chance I get. Because someday, that also might change…

I encourage you to do the same! Those years fly by so fast, and you don’t want to miss them. And at some point of your life photographs will be the only things to remind you and your Little Ones of the beautiful past you shared.

My Most Important Action during the next 15 days {Day 2 of the 15 Day Blog Challenge}

For Day 2 of our 15 Day Blog Challenge we are to describe ONE most important action we will focus on during the next 15 days. Well, mine is quite clear. It is to deliver the awesomeness of breastfeeding portraits to all the mammas who participated in last Sunday mini-sessions. The event was organized by La Leche League USA and I partnered with LLL South Bay and donated 2 hours of mini-sessions to this project. I had 8 mammas in front of my camera that day and it was wonderful.

There will be also a short and sweet movie from the mini-sessions and I can’t wait to put it together. So, yes, not like yesterday, today is short, because I have to get back to editing.

5 reasons why you should join Mother’s Day Mini Session with Ewa Samples Photography, Bay Area Family Photographer (Reason no.1)

Reason no. 1 why you should join my Mother’s Day Mini Session:

We will be helping in saving lives through CleanBirth.org! Simple! 40% of my entire profit is going to this organization!!!

ONE MOTHER’S DAY MINI SESSION HERE is up to 15 LIVES SAVED in LAOS! 

Being honest with you I think we shouldn’t need any reasons to want to help people. I know that sometimes we do not have the resources, or the time, or the energy, or we simply don’t know how to do it. I felt that way for a long time. I knew I wanted to help and to be involved with organizations that help other people. I finally found a way to do it and at the same time include more people in it, not only myself.

If you feel the same way I felt, this Mother’s Day Mini Session is the way to go. You don’t have to do anything else, just show up and look stunning! I will even be able to help you with a professional make up artist waiting for you at the location of the mini session.

Why do I want to do it, you might ask.

Well, I am a Family Photographer, wife, dog owner, coffee and green smoothie addict, but most of all I AM A MOTHER. If you’d like, head over to my post published at World Moms Blog “I could have been anything, but I am a mother first, to read more personal words about my feelings when it comes to being a mother. 

I am also a lucky mother, because thanks to modern medicine, knowledge and technology, I was able to give birth to two wonderful, beautiful and very unique girls. If I didn’t have that I probably wouldn’t even be here today. There are people out in this world who don’t have the knowledge, proper training or access to modern medicine to support them or other women through pregnancy, during and after childbirth. There are women out there who are not as lucky as I was. Being a part of such a community as World Moms Blog, from where I know Kristyn (founder of CleanBirth.org), has shown me that as much as we differ from each other, we mothers are here with a mission: to provide our children with a better future, with happiness, with understanding of this world, no matter the religion, political views, culture or country we live in, we are here for our children and their protection. I was lucky to have my children. Some women are not as lucky. I want to help to change that! And this is why I decided to contribute to such a great cause as CleanBirth.

Lifestyle newborn photography session {Newborn Photographer, Palo Alto, CA}

Lifestyle newborn photography session, those words together sound like Philip Glass to my ears. I love to hear from my clients that they want lifestyle newborn session. I just love it! I get so happy when that happens. As much as I like to play with props and cute newborn outfits, I think I am super fond of lifestyle sessions. If I was to ask a professional to photograph my newborn baby (and today I regret I didn’t do that when my kids were so little), I would definitely had gone with the photography session that is more natural for the baby.

One of the most beautiful things to photograph is a newborn and his/her family in their natural environment. Lifestyle newborn photography is beautiful. Every session has its own beauty, but I think, the most beautiful are sessions where kids are in their environment. When I get to a client’s home the kids there are most likely going to be the ones who “take charge” – they like to showcase their toys, books, art they did the other day. They like to show you around. I like it. I like how natural they are, almost immediately. You might be the strange lady for them, but the good thing is they still are in their own territory and that’s a huge plus.

During this session being a strange lady was not an issue. Before the newborn session we had already met twice. You can read more about it here . They were such troopers. Love working with those guys!

The Shy and The Playful {Family Photographer, San Jose, CA}

Many sessions, especially with small kids start like this one. Mom’s legs, dad’s arms, and no desire of smiling to the lady doing peek-a-boo from behind the camera. Often it doesn’t matter that we have already met a year ago and had super fun session. Young kids don’t remember, so each time we meet I need to build the trust with them all over again. And it’s actually exciting and fun, because you never know where it will take you at the end, how it is all going to turn.

It’s always important not to focus on the people/kids who are super easy to work with, in this case the Big Brother, who as soon as we started was very playful and goofy – photographers dream model.
What a great reward it is to turn a shy child, in this case Miss The Most Wonderful Eyelashes, into a playful, happy and chasing you (instead you chasing her) kid.
But don’t get me wrong. The points are not all on me, with a wonderful assistant and great parents who with joined power work hard behind my back (or with  an amazing dedication blow bubbles and throw the kids in the air) we all get it done.

Another year, another wonderful session! Can’t wait for next year already.

1st B-day Cake Smash {Kids Photography, San Jose, CA}

ewa_samples_cake_smash_silicon_valley_san_jose_cupertino_1

This was a super fun session. Not only because the Little One after a few minutes of warming up simply GOT IT and WENT FOR IT, but also, because his parents WENT FOR IT, too!
What a mess we all made, but I think it was worth it.
