Baby's First Year | Tina Case Photography
I love specializing in Baby's First Year. When I became a photographer I realized how much I love newborn babies and the exciting year that follows. So it was a natural progression to specialize in baby bump, newborn and 'Baby's First Year' portraiture. There are so many amazing changes that happen in the span of those first 12 months.
For the past 9 months I have been taking photos of my first set of twins. My first time meeting the parents was a baby bump session that we did in Cavallo Point. They were such troopers coming all that way when she was eight months pregnant. And by the way, Cavallo Point is a beautiful vista that has the Golden Gate Bridge as a wonderful backdrop. My photography assistant (aka my daughter) and I had a wonderful lunch there between bump sessions. Yes, we were lucky to have 2 baby bump sessions there that time!
It has been so amazing to see these two little boys at each major milestone. Their personalities are quite different. And what's been so wonderful is getting to know the parents who I just adore. They are the calm in the storm of being new parents, especially to twins. I know when I became a mom, one baby was hard work. But when we had our second baby the work wasn't double, it was exponential. That's why I'm 'doubly' amazed how they have been able to juggle being full-time working parents with twins.
This weekend we met up for their 8 month session. The boys are just starting to crawl and between the two of them have four shiny new teeth. They love to eat the fresh home-made baby food their mommy makes. They gobbled up some pureed avocado with gusto.
For these portraits our goal was to create a fun shot with the each boy in a basket and a set of balloons for each basket. But we encountered surprisingly huge gusts of wind at the lake we chose as our location. Normally this park is quite calm but the weather in California has been so variable recently. One day it's spring and 70 degrees the next day it's summer and a scorching 95 degrees. So the balloons got tangled quickly and our plan of having two sets of balloons, one on each basket, didn't happen.
So we improvised. We tied up the balloons as best we could and let the wind take them wherever it wanted. Fortunately the boys were happy as could be sitting comfortably in the baskets. And then I got the shot. They were both looking up at me with big smiles and the balloons miraculously stayed centered despite the gusts of wind. And the boys even kept their cute hats on. It was a good day :)
