The "C" family at the gardens | Kim Lind, family photographer in San Ramon, CA

Summertime is a great time for family portraits!  I love the pinks, such a happy, summer color.
 Beautiful big sister...
 A great shot doesn't have to be all grins.  I think this is a beautiful portrait of a one year old...

 Sweet sisters...
Thanks, "C" family for a great session!

17 months of fun! | Kim Lind, baby/child/family photographer, Danville/Alamo, CA

This is Danny, my latest "Baby Plan" graduate!  Over the last year or so I've seen him grow from just a little baby to this sweet little boy.  Every session with him has been just adorable, and this one is certainly no exception.  What a handsome little guy!

I love shots like this for a one year old portrait.  Is there any one year old who doesn't love balls?
 Isn't he just the cutest?
 There's really no better playmate for one year old boys than their daddy!
Peek-a-boo!  Thanks for a great session, "A" family!

Christmas in July! | Kim Lind, family photographer San Ramon/Danville/Walnut Creek, CA

In December I was contacted by the mother of these two boys with a great idea.  They had planned on visiting from the east coast and wanted to gift grandma and grandpa with a photo session with all three of  their grandkids for Christmas. This one has been on the books for a while!  Some gifts are worth waiting for...
 I love this one!  Of course I also have the shot with everyone looking at the camera, but to me this one is perfect.
Truly a grandparent's treasure!  Have a very merry summer!

Waiting for "Tic-Tac" | Kim Lind, family|maternity photographer, Pleasanton, CA

"Tic-Tac" is the eagerly anticipated baby arriving to this adorable couple in a few weeks!  We had a lot of fun at our foggy morning maternity session in Pleasanton.  Not your typical July weather, but beautiful nonetheless!
Gorgeous mama to be!  
Big sister-to-be had a note for the baby...
This is one of my favorites...not your traditional family photo, but one that tells a story and shows connection.  Love it!
 There's that foggy sky in the background...but what a cool tree!  This would look great on metallic paper.

Mom is Dutch and dad is American...I guess you could figure that out yourself by this one!  Little Tic-Tac will have people that love him or her all around the world!  Congratulations, "S" family...I can't wait to meet your little one!

Sam's Bar Mitzvah | Kim Lind Photography, Lafayette, CA

Sam is 13 and do his parents know how to throw a party! The day started off with the morning Bar Mitzvah ceremony at Temple Isaiah in Lafayette.  And then as the sun went down the party got into full swing.  Sam likes to camp and the venue was decorated in a summer camp theme which included an arts and crafts table, the cutest table decorations and sparklers to cap off the night.  What a great day!  A fantastic celebration for a fantastic kid.

Welcome, Baby Nolan! | Kim Lind, newborn baby photographer, San Francisco Bay Area

Look at this precious, brand new baby boy!  What a sweetie...all curled up as only brand new babies will do.  Welcome to the world, sweet baby Nolan!

I love this shot...I think it says a lot.
 He's smiling!  I know most will say it's gas when a baby smiles...but hey, a smile is a smile, right?
I do nearly all newborn sessions at their homes, but this one happened to take place in my home instead.  And as luck would have it, the mailman delivered this hat as we were shooting.  I couldn't have asked for a better model for my new hat!

 Sweetly sleeping...what a dreamy little guy.
Apple baby!  How cute is he?  Congratulations, Pete and Sara!  And to baby Nolan too who is pretty lucky to have such great parents!  

There's more cuteness below!  Click play to view the photo show featuring more of Nolan's newborn session...
