DayOne Halloween Party | San Francisco Baby Photographer

More costumes!!! I had the great privilege to photograph kiddos at the DayOne Center on California Street last week - what a blast! I set up my studio (lights, white backdrop, etc.) and it was GREAT as it really let the kids' costumes pop out! I again took over 1,200 photos and selected the best-of for families to view on the following gallery (p/w is: DayOne_2010). http://brookebryand.smugmug.com/Events/DayOne-Halloween/14462899_72d2G/

Here are some of my favorites from the day - enjoy! They are also on my Facebook page!

GGMG Halloween Party | San Francisco Baby Photographer

Golden Gate Mother's Group (GGMG) is a volunteer-run mom's organization in San Francisco. It's no ordinary "mom's group" - it is 4,000 members strong and includes very active forums, a monthly newsletter and dozens of events for families to participate in with their little ones. Aside from the great community benefits, it has been a saving grace to me personally in the last year. Though I have photographed babies and kids for four years, I had never changed a diaper prior to having my own baby (Cal) last November. Without GGMG, I sometimes feel like I'd either still be figuring out what to do with wipes or I'd be holed up under my desk hoping nobody will find me! I joined multiple mom's groups and all have been invaluable to me! So when GGMG asked if I would photograph their Halloween Party this year (uhhh, hundreds of kids in adorable costumes? Tough sell!), I was an emphatic yes! I took over 1,200 photos and selected the best-of for families to view on the following gallery (p/w is: GGMG_Halloween2010) http://brookebryand.smugmug.com/Parties/GGMG-Halloween-2010

Thank you, GGMG, for hosting a fantastic party!

Another Canvas!

** ADDED JAN/2012: NOTE TO PINTEREST PEEPS: **Thank you so much for your continued interest! Just want to make sure you see my Etsy shop where you view options of canvas vs. high-res JPEG for a few different canvas options: www.etsy.com/shop/brookebryand - THANK YOU! --------------------------------------------- I decided to try out the canvas concept on my own little guy (Cal) and I loooove the result! What I also love is the thought of doing this as a B/W...I think that is even more dramatic yet subtle at the same time.

This particular canvas is 20"x20". The center photo is 9"x9" and the smaller squares are 2"x2" each.

Ready to have your own? We can use a full session of photos and combine them into one canvas to commemorate the year! Contact me or check out the website for details: http://brookebryand.com.

If you would like me to design the file and then you create the canvas yourself through your own canvas provider, the cost is $250. You'd send me your 49 images, indicate which one should be the center image, and I'll do the rest! I'll send you back a high-res JPEG that is print-ready for your canvas provider.

{ update for December 2011: my Etsy shop has full details and MORE canvases!: http://etsy.com/shop/brookebryand }
