This Lifestyle Baby Photography session was in the middle of a typhoon.  Alright, you got me.  It wasn’t really a typhoon, but it felt like it!

The thick San Francisco fog rolled in just before the shoot started and the wind grew so strong that baby Jordann was scared to be on her own.  There were even times I got hit by wood chips and acorns because of the heavy gusts.  The fog sat right where our location was (of course), so it was also freezing cold.  Oy!

What do you do in this kind of situation?

Like Tim Gunn says in Project Runway, “Make it work!”  So that’s what we did.   🙂

We started the shoot in the early evening, so there wasn’t time to scout for a new location.  Instead, we moved around within our location.  I also used the wind to my benefit when it came to showing off Thaomy’s gorgeous dress!


To Jordann:  Happy 18-months!  I love that you learned how to say my name during the shoot!!!  Auntie Annie misses you already!

To Thaomy and Paolo:  You two are such a cute couple!  What a joy it was to photograph your family.  Oooh… I can’t wait to show you the rest of your photos!

    Annie, you simply amaze us and you would make Tim Gunn proud. You truly worked it! You made the lighting and wind work for you, to the point that it even looks warm and inviting in the pictures. We were ecstatic to see you capture jordann’s fun personality with the picture book (we couldn’t believe your talent in capturing her eyes through the peacock page!) Thank you so much for a fun time. Your love and professionalism for what you do really shined through even in the face of the ‘typhoon.’ 🙂

    • What a wonderful compliment! I am sooooo happy you love what you see so far. I am working hard to finish your gallery bec I can’t wait to show you everything! This is just a sneak peek. 🙂

    Later that evening, as we were arriving at a friend’s house for dinner, my mama said ‘oooh still WINDY!’ and I said “ANNIE!” True story! You will forever be connected to windy days! In a good way!

    • YAAAAAY!!!!! I absolutely love you, baby J! I also love it when you nod to say ‘yes’. You are TOO CUTE!

    Beautiful photos!! Especially like the 2nd photo (the sunlight shining through the trees and the wind blowing on Thaomy’s gorgeous dress) and love the last family photo. The peacock photos of baby Jordann are super cute too!
