Remember when the girls were 6 months? They were little bundles of love...and now they are walking bundles of fun! Big sister Jessica adores them...she is so sweet, patient and inclusive - it is a treat to watch the three of them together! Add in mom and dad and we have a beach full of VanderWalls! We took over China Beach and I am smitten with the images from their shoot. Enjoy!
Mila and Anya...oh girls, you took my heart! It was an honor to photograph these girls for their first official photo session! They were champs and let us dress them, undress them (you know I can't resist baby rolls) and dress them again! Mom and Dad, you are doing an incredible job of juggling what seems like an impossible feat...my hat is off to you!

As promised, our third set of twins for one month are now on the blog! Alex + Tommy are 8-month-old identical twins and gave me a run for my money to tell them apart! I even had to color-coordinate the final images in my editing process so I made sure I represented both of them equally! Their parents are...well...not your typical first-time-parents. Maybe because they were thrown into parenthood with multiples, maybe just because their personalities are hilarious...either way, I enjoyed our sessions immensely! Congratulations, Laura + Paul...your sons are absolutely precious. I appreciate you entrusting me to document them during this fun stage!
I can't possibly believe that Ella and Olivia are now TWO YEARS OLD! It has been so incredible for me to watch them grow over the last two years, and to watch their loving, incredible fathers grow with them. We headed to China Beach and Land's End to explore with the girls in April...here are some highlights of their sweet personalities:
It is SUCH a treat when I get to photograph twins, and I have had THREE sets within April/May...(6mos, 8mos and 2 years old)! These two mischief-makers are completely engaged in whatever big sister J is into. They were crawling all over the place, pulling up on anything they could find, and just on the move! As a mom, I told mama Tobee that I was exhausted just watching her orchestrate the girls...and especially with such ease!
Here are a few favorites from our session...can't wait to do it again when they turn 1!
Photographing twins truly is a treat! I'm so used to "singletons" that when I get to photograph multiples, I am always so thrilled. I have photographed Kalyani + Stephen's eldest kiddo, Sachin, for the last 3 years and it's been wonderful to watch him grow from a toddler to a full fledged little boy...from conversations to questions to e-n-e-r-g-y! And now he is joined by two wonderful twin sisters - simply amazing. Thank you, Kalyani + Stephen, for entrusting me with the girls' newborn session! Here are some of my favorites from our time together.
