Reactions, Expressions and Emotions

Let’s get right down to it!  Today’s East Bay lifestyle photography session was about reactions, expressions and emotions.


There is one shot from today’s shoot that gets me choked up every time I look at it!

It’s the tightness of the hug between little David and his momma…

And it’s Aaron’s downward glance, as if he were giving his son and wife a private moment.

After just having another baby, these little acts of tenderness by your older children are incredibly precious.  TISSUE!


Great Expressions

Below right: Aaron just found out Baby Sammy had woken up from her nap, so he leaned in…

David’s expression is PRICELESS!

Okay, so that’s it for my blog theme:  Reactions, Expressions and Emotions.

But I absolutely must share some of my other favorites that didn’t fall under that theme.  Check ‘em out…

Urban Family


Gangsta Baby

I love how Samara has one thumb in her mouth and the other hand was making a her gang sign.

Just kidding, of course… Everyone knows baby gang signs use both hands.   ;)  (Joking!)


A Quiet Moment


Baby Sammy

Her eyes were incredible…it was sort of this deep blue-grey color.  Just mesmerizing.


The Superman Move

Well, in this case, it was a SuperWOMAN move!

You know what I mean, right?  It’s when babies lay on their tummies and tighten their backs, so their limbs just lift up, up and away!!!
