I just love these teenage guys – they’re two brothers who are just about the nicest people you could meet (& they’re pretty cool and good-looking too). They’re almost done with high school, and let their Mom have their photos taken for Mother’s Day (sweet, right?).
Continuing this week of showing off family photo shoots, I bring you the incredibly sweet toddler Dashiell & his lovely grandmother Mary. His parents (Lauren & Josh) are the design team and proprietors of The Podolls – their eponymous design label and clothing store in Burlingame. I grew up with Lauren, as our Moms are the best of friends, and it has made me so happy to see her doing so well as a designer (she was a seriously stylish child, so it’s not too surprising she’s a designer now – my sister and I just completely envied her ability to put looks together). If you find yourself in Burlingame, I suggest stopping by their shop (and I do recommend making a special trip & I say that without any bias because their designs are truly wearable, current-but-not-trendy, and cut from the most gorgeous fabrics, that you will not regret going. They also carry of-the-moment shoes, accessories & a darling kids line they started called The Podots (oh how I love a little word play).) You can read more about them on 7×7, and SF Gate. I was so honored to take Mary’s holiday card photos with Dash – he is just the sweetest little boy and it was a delight getting to capture a couple of moments in time with him.
Sometimes you can take really cute family pics in just a few minutes. If you hit those few minutes right, when the kids are smiling and happy. That was the case with this lovely family. The kids were just so themselves at 3, 5 and 7 & I loved taking their pictures.
