*** Brianna Newborn ***

I'll drive anywhere for newborn cuddles... even a full hour away on a random Friday. , as my son would say. Baby Brianna was worth every mile in the car and ever gummy bear to brother to get the perfect family, lifestyle photos.

It has been so fun connecting with his family from maternity to newborn. They really are the sweetest and baby Bri is super lucky to have them. Enjoy your sneak peek.

*** Marroquin Family ***

What a lovely family! High school sweethearts and PAWrents to these sweet dogs. It was a delight to spend some time in redwood trees getting to know this lovely couple and thier sweet puppies. I was so honored to take their family photo updates and I don't want to pat myself on the back, but I think they turned out pretty amazing!

These pups were so so darling and the moms were equally as fun to be around. All-in-all, it was a great evening in the grove, with amazing photo results to boot!

*** Amaya Newborn ***

So thrilled to meet Miss Amaya and her mama this past week. What a little doll. After other photographers turned her away for being "too old", I knew I had to give newborn photos a try with this sweet 7 week old baby. I never overlook the opportunity to get a mama priceless keepsakes of their baby and I'm so glad I was willing to make these photos work.

She may have been quick to wake up, but that is something you expect from a 7 week old, but patience and gentleness prevailed and Amaya's newborn gallery is absolutely perfect. Here is a sneak peek!

*** CJ One Year ***

It's my party and I'll cry if I want to, was the theme of CJ's cake smash... He went from happy to sad in the course of minutes and it was so fun to watch him destroy his cake! He was all hands into that frosting and I'm not even sure he had any bites. He definitely did the cake smash his own way and I think that is just perfect -- I bet he grows up to be one independent boy!

The best part about having CJ in studio was all the family that came to support him. He is one loved little man and I think you can see it in the way him and his sissy snuggled in for photos. What a great family and happy birthday "little man"!

*** Avianna Newborn ***

Sweet beauty Ava was just a doll who loved her first modeling session. As always, I enjoyed every snuggle and all the wonderful conversations with her great parents and grandparents.

I still have to pinch myself that I am lucky enough to snuggle newborns for a job. I feel so much pride getting to do something so special - creating memories of such a fleeting time in ones life. Avianna's session was a treat and she is just darling little thing and I am so excited to show off her sneak peek!

Happy International Women's Day! It seems like the perfect time to showcase this families maternity session from this weekend. See that darling little bump? That sweet little girl is the what we celebrate today - the future bright with possibilities for her and all girls.

It was my honor to meet up with this family in the Redwoods and create gorgeous art as they patiently wait for baby girls arrival. Little Callum stole the show (even though mom warned me he may be shy, he was quite the contrary). Momma literally glowed and dad was along for the ride. It was a fun and obviously beautiful session. Enjoy this sneak peek!

*** Jazlyn One Year ***

It's almost Jazzilynn's Birthday! Time to celebrate!!! We started her early with a delicious cake smash (beautiful cake made my mom, can you believe that?!) - she was all in, arm deep in that yummy frosting and just cute as can be. She may have withheld smiles from me, but it wasn't because she wasn't enjoying herself. She had a blast, especially in that beautiful milk bath. What a fun time with a sweet little girl. Can't wait to get these photos fully edited for your birthday, darling!

*** Theo Newborn ***

Oh, sweet Theo. What a fun session we had. Momma wanted him to look alike a little old man, so we pulled out all the stops and put him in a vintage chair with his glasses and suspenders. Cue the "ooooos & awwwwwes"!

I also loved that mom brought her sisters along for the photos. NOTHING is stronger than that familial bond and little Theo is one lucky dude to be surrounded by so many wonderful women. He is a loved little buddy and I am SO pleased with his sneak peek!

Sneak Peek alert 🚨! It's been a busy week around Mandy Jester Photography and I am so excited to give you all another sneak peek of this wonderful family. I met the Freer family at Santa photos this year and their boy was so full of joy when he met "the big guy" that I was so excited to spend an hour with them taking family photos. Our time together did not disappoint.

Beautiful sunset, beautiful outfits, fabulous scenery and most of all so much love to capture. Hope you love your first peek, Freer family!

*** Davis Newborn ***

I think we have a future model on our hands. Sweet little Davis came in ready to rock his newborn session. He was all things sleepy and calm. We rolled through my work flow in record time and best of all, he's just cute as can be.

One of the best parts of a newborn shoot is meeting the families and spending 2-4 hours with them. You really get to watch them in action and this family has something special. I loved learning how Davis is named after the place they met and watching their team work as they cared for him. It was a special part of the day and I hope these photos are special to you all for years to come!

*** Welliver Family ***

It's always an honor when a family drives a distance to have me capture their family photos! This crew came from Roseville for this gorgeous maternity session. Their son was one of the most compliant 2 year olds I've ever had in front of my camera and it made this shoot so quick and easy. I just loved every minute of it!

With only 2 weeks until babies arrival, I am so glad we fit in a maternity session so you never forget this sweet time as a family of 3.5! Things are about to change for the better and I can't wait to meet sweet little girl when she arrives! Enjoy your sneak peek while you count down the days to baby girl!

Family truly is everything!

*** Eliana Newborn ***

The perfect gift. Sweet Eliana was just a doll-baby as she sweetly slept through her first modeling session. She is obviously a great gift to her wonderful parents who are just smitten (I mean, you wouldn't be).

The most touching thing about this session was that baby's Godmother gifted her family this session. What a perfect gift. Photos that will last a lifetime and be the perfect keepsake for years to come. I'm just so impressed with how loved this little girl is and her future is bright to be surrounded by so much care.

Okay, California, I get the hype! 🌸

After a "flash bloom" thanks to some super warm weather we found ourselves moving our almond blossom sessions up a weekend and without a doubt I am so grateful for all of my flexible clients who made the dates work. We got them in just in the nick of time, because I don't think these blooms will be around much longer. I don't think anyone will regret moving schedules around because just look at how amazing these photos are.

14 families in 2 days and I am just tickled pink to show you a quick sneak peek of the beauty we created. WOW. Just WOW!

*** Andrew Newborn ***

Happy 2 week Birthday to this sweet bub. It was my honor to spend your ONE WEEK Birthday with you taking these beautiful photos. Isn't this guy a doll? He was so fun to work with and even though he was a hungry-bunch, he also let me get all my favorite shots.

It was fun to have a second interaction with this wonderful family. I loved seeing brothers love for his new sibling and mom & dad's connection. Most of all it was so sweet to see how loved this little newborn is. He's got a great future ahead of him because he is so surrounded by love.

"Doooown by the creek..." I met this darling family and enjoyed a wonderful evening of exploration and wonder as we captured this wonderful time in their lives. Turns out this handsome boy is school buddies with our neighbors and best friends and the wonderful cycle of "small world" Winters continues... I love it!

This family was so easy going and made our session so comfortable. So happy to have captured their love and so excited to share it with you!

How often do you look at your babies and think, I don't want to miss these days. For me, it's more and more the older my kids get. And *that* is why you hire a photographer... because there is no better time to capture your kids and their connection then now.

Photographing the Tharp siblings was so much fun! They were great listeners and willing to try all my crazy antics. They are darling bunch who seem to have the sweetest connection and this is their first photoshoot since they were babies. How great did they do and how precious will these photos be for years to come?!

*** Windenmann Family ***

HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY! So often Valentines Day is celebrated as a holiday for lovers... but love is so much more broad than that. When you have a family as fun and vibrant as this one, you have 5 special Valentines (maybe 6 if you count the pup! ;) ) and there is something so wonderful about that.

The Windenmann family wanted family photos with the beautiful, rolling hills of Northern California and we delivered. We laughed and played; climbed trees and smelled blooms and waited until the exact moment that the sun set over the hills to get the perfect gallery of family photos for this sweet family. I hope you love your sneak peek!
