Over 4th of July weekend I had such a beautiful mama, dad, baby, and grandmother appointment! I was staying up in the Bay Area for the week, and scheduled to meet at Shoreline Park in Mountain View. I've been to Shoreline numerous times, and remembered the numerous nature areas that would be pretty backgrounds in the photos.
When I arrived a little bit early, I ran into a few setbacks. First, there were two different weddings going on at the park! The small parking areas were overflowing or completely blocked off. Second, being a holiday weekend, the park was offering numerous water sport clinics on their little lake. Third, and lastly, there was crazy wind! I parked in a distant lot, and hiked over to the main park with all my camera things & accessories in tow.
The family arrived, and I started snapping away. They were super good sports! The wind had us taking a little tour around the grassy areas, in search of some calm air. Their 6 month old daughter really did great. It took almost half an hour to get her to crack a smile though! Mom, dad, & grandma all did their best and worked all their usual magic. Grandma finally cracked her!
The wind handicapped us a little, but we still came out with some great photos :)
