Los Gatos Family Photographer

Fun Family Photo Session with bubbles and other things {Family Photographer, San Jose, CA}

This was one of the most fun family photo sessions I have done so far.

Ester and her family were the winners for my full family session drawing.

After my first email, Ester wrote me back:

I quote my husband: you never win anything

I was very happy I could change it.

From the day I announced the winner they were nothing but amazing to work with. Starting from planning and coming up with ideas to simply the session itself. It was a win-win situation because not only they got a wonderful opportunity to capture their family but I got a chance to work on a very creative and laid-back session.

There were even moments where all of a sudden I have received kisses and hugs from the Lil One, and I think this was the most rewarding part of it all.

Thank you guys for this wonderful session!

 Check out those beautiful photos!

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!

Happy Halloween {Family Photographer, Los Gatos, CA}

Sometimes the best things come from unplanned and unexpected. That’s exactly how it happened yesterday. We went for a short hike mixed with location scouting. We also discovered that we have Halloween costumes in the trunk of the car. While one sister refused to dress up, the other one took advantage of having two costumes available to her… We had so much fun!
