Just a few short years ago I was photographing this couple's engagement, then their wedding, then her first maternity session, and then their first photos as a family. One of the greatest pleasures of my job as a photographer is watching people grow. In this case, the De Rosas have recently grown into a family of four, and I feel lucky to know them on a personal level, but also to capture these moments as their photographer.
These days, it makes the most sense to select a location based on how fun it may seem to their two+ year old. This time, we landed on the San Francisco Botanical Garden, because what is more fun than giant leaves and rocks when you're an adventurous toddler boy?
