Thru the Lens of Auey Santos

Sofia @ 7 Days October 6, 2009

Filed under: Babies,Portraits — aueysantos @ 5:07 am

Newborn alert! A bundle of cuteness, swaddled in pink! I had just photographed a very ready-to-pop Trish a few weeks earlier and loved that I could revisit their home once more to get a glimpse of their latest baby model – Addie 2.0. Rather, Sofia. This 7 day old baby was perhaps one of most cooperative newborns ever. She didn’t poop when we took off her diaper. She didn’t cry when we lay her down on the floor to have her photo taken. She didn’t even flinch when we stuffed her in a crochet cocoon wrap. What a trooper! Now if only all models would be so cooperative. More photos to come, but here are my early faves.

Tricia and Baby #2 August 29, 2009

Filed under: Babies,Maternity,Slideshows — aueysantos @ 4:04 am

Tricia and her daughter Addy are members of the same momsgroup/playgroup I belong to.  Since most of the kids are approaching their two year old mark, it’s only natural that a lot of the moms are expecting baby #2. And the cycle begins once more! I was so pleased and honored to be asked to photograph Tricia’s pregnant beauty in full bloom. She looks absolutely radiant in these photos! Here are some of my favorites. And you check out the slideshow here.

Remember the Toombs family? They welcomed the latest addition to their family – baby girl Hazel, born 8 lbs and 8 ozs. Three year old Ruby loved being a big sister and was totally doting on the new baby. Congratulations to Danielle and Michael and thank you once again for allowing me to capture these precious and fleeting moments.

Toombs Maternity-Family Session April 29, 2009

Filed under: Babies,Family Portraiture,Maternity,Portraits,Toddlers to Teens — aueysantos @ 8:28 pm

Sunday morning @ 8:30 am and I was greeted by three smiling faces, not at all perturbed by the early time. I knew I was off to a great start! Not only were they an adorable & gorgeous family, the Toombs exuded a genuine warmth and kindness that definitely reflected in their photos. I was snapping away like crazy, because every moment was just picture-perfect! Three year old Ruby was so excited about her new baby sister, the happiness was infectious! There are tons of great shots from this session, I had a hard time selecting the ones for posting here. Enjoy!

Baby Loves Disco San Jose – Earth Day Fun! April 14, 2009

We all had a blast at the Baby Loves Disco Earth Day celebration, held at Avalon Disco last April 5. Whew – I really pushed myself hard and by the end of the day – I had photographed over 70 children in a span of 3 hours! Can you believe it? It was such an awesome experience to meet all the kids and parents who visited our booth. Thank you so much! The photos are now up on the on-line gallery. You know the password! You can also check out the slideshow here. Til next time — keep it groovy!
