The last entry (for now) in my series of this family from engagement, to wedding, through pregnancy and now baby pictures. Genevieve’s mom happened to be visiting that day, so I got the chance for some lovely three generation portraits.
Genevieve and John’s photographic family journey continues, with these sunny photos of the lovely pregnant Genevieve. I’ve noticed more and more pregnant mamas want their partners in their maternity portraits, too, and I love that!
I just realized how much the above shot echoes one of my favorites from Genevieve and John’s engagement session, which I published here on my blog earlier this week. These two love each other, and show it with tons of smooches, snuggles, and smiles!
Their wedding, during the fall at Mill Valley’s beautiful community center, was a simple but joyous party, with great wedding planners (Downey Street Events) to help with the day of stuff, and lots of little DIY elements. John and Gen wanted to preserve their guests’ privacy, so I’m just focusing on their faces and the bright colors of their ceremony arch in particular (love it!!) today. More from this sweet family in the form of maternity photos soon!
I’ve been sitting on these two lovebirds’ photos for awhile, and I’m glad. Because now I get to showcase their journey as a family, from engagement portraits, through to photos or their newborn baby. I’ve seen several of “my” couples recently have babies, and it’s such a thrill to get to witness their families growing so intimately. What an honor!
So, for today: their engagement session, back when the family of just two could fit in a small apartment in the Mission District, in an alleyway with beautiful murals all over the walls. Back before San Francisco apartments in the Mission District became even more insanely expensive. They’ve had to move since, to make room for their sweet baby J, so I’m glad that we had a chance to photograph their home and neighborhood when we did. (And you know we got to use the excuse to go to Tartine, get Bi-Rite soft serve, wander around Dolores Park and Guerrero Street’s grassy medians…)
I’m planning to share their wedding, maternity portraits, and newborn pictures all in the coming week or so. Stay tuned!
