After the rain, the sun comes out {Lifestyle Family Photographer, San Jose, CA}

throwing leaves (1 of 1)

I am so much behind updating my blog here but living the life of a mom of two young children the inevitable thing, in this time of a year, had happened.  Both kids got sick at the same time and among doing lots of laundry and sleepless nights my last desire was to sit in front of the computer taking care of blog.

At the same time I almost lost hope for the opportunity to take my kids out to the Fall colors and fallen leaves. Day after day had passed by and it seemed like there is no end to their illness.

Finally after a short test walk two days ago, yesterday we went for a wonderful trip. The one I was hoping for since Fall has arrived. We played. Threw leaves. Got grumpy.
Life is good! 🙂

Alicia in Wonderland {Family/Kids Photography, San Jose, CA}

ewa samples, porfolio, family session (1 of 1)

We met with Alicia and her mom in one beautiful late afternoon. I’ve been working on a special project (that is top-secret for now) and I was planning to focus a lot on Alicia’s mom, but when the camera made its first “click” something clicked in Alicia, as well.

From a shy, hiding behind her mamma girl, she opened up like being in front of a camera was her first nature, like she’s done it many times before. I just couldn’t miss all those wonderful moments in which she became the star.

Thank you both, girls!!!

Fall Mini-Session {Family Photography, San Jose, CA}

Fall is around the corner, and it happens to be my favorite season of the year. I think everyone who has something to do with photography loves Fall.

It was a wonderful day when I opened my email and read “Hello Ewa, our baby boy arrived yesterday. We are all fine and happy. When can we schedule new sesssion?” The best email a photographer can receive. Pretty soon after I reveived that message I had the chance to meet Leonardo myself.

I meet with Julian not once, but twice.

The second time his grandparents were in town and I could not pass the opportunity to capture 3 generations.

Happy As Hugo {Infant Photography, San Jose, CA}

Hugo is 7 months old and his mom told me I just got lucky to meet him on one of his good days, but I think he just loves to be photographed!

In addition he is one lucky guy. His mom who went through a surgery after having a breast inflammation is still breastfeeding him.

No wonder Hugo is so happy. He is well taken care of. What else to want from life? Right 🙂

Ah… and we actually captured his first confrontation with grass… and while not very sure about it at first, after a few minutes he went to his daily routine, push-ups 😉

NOT twin Brothers! {Kids Photography, San Jose, CA}

When I got to their house, at 8am, I was welcomed by one sleepy head, his older brother was still asleep, and we got up he wasn’t in the best mood for a photo shoot. We had worked a little bit harder than usual to get a smile out of him. We watched cartoons, ate breakfast and played together. I captured their morning routine.

Goodbye California, {Family Photography, San Jose, CA}

They were flying, jumping, hula hooping, peek-a-booing and hiding in moving boxes. What a session!!!

I had a pleasure to photograph this fun to work with family right after their baby No.2 was born (pictures from that session HERE).

This time we met for a session that would capture the memories about their neighborhood, their favorite park, their favorite spot at their house (a couch, lol), and a few other things that will remind them about the place they used to live for a long time.

We had so much fun, I couldn’t stop photographing them:

We met on one early afternoon, and although Little Greta did not want to settle down for more than 3 minutes at the time, we kept the family busy with all kinds of family shots. With the laughter, lots of kisses and love pouring from every member of this beautiful family the session was amazing.
