The "S" Family | Kim Lind family photography, Pleasanton, CA

The "S" family has been waiting for their sneak peek ever so patiently as I have been traveling in Chicago this week. Thanks for waiting! These two sisters were a treat to photograph in their own home. A little shy at first, they warmed up to big smiles pretty quickly.

Here's those big smiles...

At two, kids - and I think especially little girls - are very attached to their parents. I love how she's sprawled out on her mommy's legs.

I love window light. It's the first thing I noticed when I walked in the door. A great window + a little girl = a great opportunity for a beautiful portrait. Isn't she gorgeous?

Thanks "S" family for a fun at-home session!

Spring Model Search with Kim Lind Photography and Lilliana's

Last Saturday morning was so much fun at the San Ramon Farmer's Market! I teamed up with the fabulous Karla of Lilliana's, a super cute line of girls hair and fashion accessories for a springtime model search. Oodles of girls wearing tutus and donning all kinds of cute hair accessories...what fun! Spaces filled within about an hour of being fast that I didn't even have a chance to promote it myself! With products as cute as these, what little girl wouldn't want to have her picture taken wearing them? Click the play button and turn on the volume for a sneak peek!

In just over two hours, we had 15 models come through. The youngest model was just two weeks old! Lilliana's is not just for little girls though, we had a few "grown up" models and a few mother/daughter models too. I'll be teaming up with Lilliana's to do a few more events in the coming months. Be sure to become a fan of Lilliana's on Facebook to get the latest information.

The perfect Father's Day gift | Kim Lind family photography, Pleasanton, CA

These three lovely ladies, mother and her two teenage daughters, were so much fun to photograph. And what a perfect Father's Day gift they arranged for this year!

Aren't they gorgeous?!

I love this setting, the reflections in the water behind them don't show the rain clouds that were looming above us.

Luckily we were able to finish with only a few sprinkles to contend with. But these three could brighten up any day I'm sure, rainy or not! Thanks for a great session, "N" girls!

Adorable Aveline, 3 months old | Kim Lind baby photography, San Ramon, CA

Meet one of my newest baby plan clients, adorable Aveline! She's three months old and quite a charmer with her toothless grins and big sparkly eyes. It will be fun to watch her grow from a sweet and cuddly little baby to a crawling, toddling one year old! Here's a sneak peek video slideshow of our session this week.

Springtime session for 11! | Kim Lind family photography, Livermore, CA

This session for the "Z" family was presented as a holiday gift to the nice looking couple in the middle - grandma and grandpa to these five beautiful children. What a perfect Christmas gift!

The five beautiful grandchildren...

This is not your standard family portrait, which is why I love it!

The two who got this big family have a beautiful family and it was a pleasure to photograph you all!

The "G" kids, having fun in the dirt! | Kim Lind family photography, San Francisco Bay Area

This session was a lot of fun for everyone - the kids, who got to get good and wet at the end, and for the photographer who got to go creek stomping along with them!

All dressed up and in the woods...I love the white dress on the tree stump!

A River Runs Through It...ever seen that movie? Baby Brad Pitt here...

All little boys love sticks, don't they? I love the timeless look of this one...

Sweet squeeze...

Stomping around, looking for tadpoles...cold feet but good times! Thanks for another fun session "G" family!

Engagement Session Sneak Peek for Kaela and Wes! | Kim Lind Photography, on-location in Nashville, TN

Before I head to the airport this morning, ending my wonderful week in the great state of Tennessee, I just had to post a few pictures from an engagement session I did while I was here. This couple was a dream to photograph! And the location...well, it just doesn't get any better than this farm just outside of Nashville, TN.

Finding the location was totally up to Kaela, since I live thousands of miles away. This farm is one she drives by all the time, and wouldn't you know she just went up and knocked on the door one day and a sweet old Granny said she'd love to have us. Though she didn't quite understand why in the world we'd want to be in a's easy to see why!

One word for this photo - HOT!

The sky was absolutely amazing with rays of light breaking through and shining down on us. Kaela and Wes, just wait until you see the rest of your photos! It was truly a pleasure to meet you both and thanks for an incredible session!

Elise, 3 months old | Kim Lind, Baby Photographer, Pleasanton, CA

This little sweetheart is 3 month old baby Elise. She has these amazing big blue eyes that are just breathtaking. It was obvious at our session that she is adored by her two big brothers and parents. Even the cat seemed pretty fond of this little princess! Here's a video sneak peek at our session - lots of cute girly props at this one, such fun!
