We met the Gilmore family at a park in Berkeley right after an evening of rain. All night I hoped that the rain would hold off for our morning shoot and lucky for us ... it did. When we first met their little one Jackson he was a bit shy as any two year old would be meeting complete strangers ... but that all changed when we gave him a purple monster puppet ... he smiled from ear to ear when he saw it.
Not to mention he laughed and laughed all shoot because Marc just has a way with kids. We spent the morning avoiding puddles, chatting about our mutual love for Tahoe, and had a bunch of laughs as both parents became super heroes as they saved Jackson's balloon more than once.
I can't wait to see this family grow as we had the privilege to photograph their family photos and baby announcement ... they are having a girl.
Shoots like these affirm to Marc and I how much we love photography. Congrats to the Gilmore family on their soon to be addition. We can't wait to watch your family grow.
