Baby Sullivan | San Francisco Family Portraits


Agnes and Stephen usually live down in Southern California, but they spent a couple months up in San Francisco this summer and wanted to capture their short time here with a fun portrait session. What we didn’t anticipate was that baby Sullivan would throw a protest halfway through the session and completely fall asleep! Being a model is hard work. But this is what I tell all parents at their sessions: just go with it. Even if it feels like the session is going awry, it’s up to me to capture all those great moments, not just the posed ones but all sweet ones in between. And look how sweet it really was!

Oh, then Sullivan went to sleep and refused to wake up. Look at that face!

Haha, he was pretty reluctant, but we waited it out and then continued!

Back to being cute (and awake).


Thanks for trusting me to capture your family photos! See, things don’t always go according to plan but it’s usually just fine anyhow.
