Imagine if you will a beautiful late summer morning, the sun shinning down on the small lake at Heather Farms Park in Walnut Creek, the birds chirping, owners walking their dogs and stopping to give a wag to the H family as they stroll around the lake shore picking up dried maple leaves. Well, actually you needn’t imagine it, just check out the images of this gorgeous day and my time with them.
Desmond just celebrated his second birthday and he was all smiles and bright blue eyes, running around and playing with his parents. I first met Desmond in June when I photographed him and his friends at KLA Preschool in Walnut Creek. He was just as delightful on this sunny Sunday and it is very clear from spending, even a short amount of time with them, that this is one happy young family.
Enjoy today’s sneak peek.

I had two delightful sisters playing in the cube recently. These girls were playful, silly and a total joy to photograph. Enjoy this quick sneak peek.

Bay Area Pet Portraits
The Chickpea Cube isn’t only for kids. Dogs like to play too and their owners.
I photographed Suzanne’s other Standard Poodle, Mellow, a few years ago and when she heard about the Cube Sessions, she decided it was a great idea to have family portraits done with her new puppy, Bentley. He may only be 10 months old, but Bentley is a good sized dog, but no worries – he fit just fine in the cube. In fact they all did.
Bentley is a very sweet and well behaved puppy. A very expressive face, if I asked him where his blue ball was I got a great head tilt. He seemed happy and relaxed in the cube, especially with his people in their with him. I had a great time with all three of them and I think their smiles and laughs show the same.
Thanks Suzanne for bringing Bentley to the studio and playing in the cube. Enjoy your sneak peek.
When I worked in Corporate America as an IT Manager I worked with some pretty amazing women. On Labor Day these same women brought their families into the studio for a series of Cube Sessions. Three families; 6 adults and 7 children and can you believe it – they all fit in the chickpea cube! Well ok, not all at the same time, but nearly.
Thank you Mary, Trish and especially Frances, for bringing in your peeps, playing with the bubbles and balloons and, lest I forget, the pizza too! Miss you guys!
Enjoy today’s sneak peek.
Jeannie was one of my very first clients way back in 2009, when I photographed her wonderful dog, Buddy. Now I get to continue with her children in the Chickpea Cube.
Lucas and Levi got to play with bubbles, the vintage tricycle and couple of other fun props. Jeannie and Nico were great sports and jumped in the cube too.
Looks like a lot of fun don’t you think? Enjoy today’s sneak peek.
