Anecdotally Yours Blog bio picture

Baby Smiles!

It’s been a crazy few weeks around here, and while there are so many fun shoots to blog, we’re just trying to keep up with editing everything. ;) But… while editing tonight, I couldn’t help but get a few of these shots ready for the blog of this little guy (another cute Ben!) at his four-month photo session. ENJOY this adorable baby face!


Dan and Kara’s San Francisco Wedding Film

You may remember Dan and Kara’s wedding photos from a few months ago. We are super excited to share their wedding film with you today, which was an awesome story of two people and their families and friends who care deeply. The setting was perfect, too — San Francisco, California, doesn’t disappoint. But our favorite parts of this film are the way Dan and Kara look at each other, the intentionality behind all of the words spoken in toasts and during their ceremony, and the happy, relaxed way they interact with everyone. Oh, and food trucks on a hill overlooking San Francisco. :) We think you’ll love this one, too.

Big thank you to our friend Jon Lemmon for second shooting this with Jeff!

Newborn session: Alexis (and Caroline!)

Caroline was convinced that they were naming her little sister “America.” Her parents opted for Alexis instead, but I thought it was appropriate that baby sister arrived right before the 4th of July, and that their house was still decorated with American flags out front. :)

Gideon’s 3 month photos!

Photographing families at home is the best. They are comfortable, relaxed, and babies are surrounded by the things that are familiar and fun for them. Gideon did amazingly well during his session for his three-month photos, and gave us some super sweet smiles (okay, those were for his parents, who were entertaining him near the camera…). :) Enjoy this sneak peek!

Sam’s at-home session!

Little Sam is SO cute. As I edited these photos, I just couldn’t stop saying, “he’s so CUTE!!” His eyes are already smiling like they’re in on a joke, and his sweet grin and chubby cheeks are the best. He’s worked hard for those chubby cheeks, too! Enjoy this little peek into baby Samuel’s personality and just how much his parents dote on him. :)
