Little Miss Claire Bear | San Francisco Family Photographer

The most important thing you leave behind is the stuff that turns into treasures when children find it.

I adore this Storypeople quote. It made me think of sweet memories we created for baby C’s family and how they will cherish them forever. When baby C grows up to be a beautiful young lady she will likely not remember her cute chubb days. But I hope that these pictures will be her treasures to have and hold on to.

We had a wonderful session with baby C’s family at their home in Noe Valley in San Francisco. Mommy had ordered some cute clothes I recommended from the Gap, Baby Legs and not to forget Anthropologie for herself. Seven months. Such a wonderful age. It is my favorite age to photograph little people when they are able to sit up. And also when they can’t get away from me too easily (though she was just starting to crawl and is likely a different baby today). Enjoy your sneak peek!

In the many faces on baby C, do you have a favorite? Post your favorite in the comments section using the numbering system below. I will share which one mine is too once the voting is over. Top Row with two pics- Use no. 1 for left and no. 2 for right. In the middle row with three pics- use no. 3 for left, no. 4 for middle and no. 5 for right. For a total of 25+ comments (don’t have to be for one image), I will make a complimentary 5 x 7 print for the family. So vote away!!!

Check out the teeny skinny jeans on baby C. I wonder if they will be still a fad when she grows up?

Stefani Wedl - thanks Alpana!! LOVE them all; I really love the one of the three of us!! (you do B&W amazingly well!!!)
I’ll vote for number 4 as my favorite…but I think if I were to vote at another moment in time I’d chose a different one every time. thanks for your hard work thus far; we can’t wait to see the rest!

Julie - Tough choice. I think #4 is my fave.

Carole Wedl - I’m the grandmommy; so, of course, I love all of them! Except for the blue eyes, Claire is so much like Stefani at that age. Pix 1 & 3 are especially like Stefani, as I remember. they’re all favorites but #6 with the whole family is especially dear. You ahve a great eye for shots. Thanks!

Sandy - Beautiful !!! These are all works of art – so charming and expressive. #6 of the whole family would be my favorite. However, choosing is hard -each of the expressions that you caught of Claire amplifies the other. #4 is precious. I also really like the way you captured the lighting on her features with #1. #2 profile cracked me up -like some of us ‘older’women who attempt to show our best ‘side.’ From there, she seemed totally entertained with the process!! You are gifted !
Thanks for letting us share in the experience – she’s a little angel !

Courtney Pickering - Great shots of little Claire Bear! I’m Claire’s Auntie and mom of her favorite playmate, Owen. I love #4: big smile, fingers in the mouth…what could be better? Can’t wait to see more!

Don Wedl - As the grandpa, “papa,” I vote for number 5.

Amy Buehler - The pictures are adorable! My favorite is #4. She feels that her teeth are coming in of course…
I also love the family picture. You have a beautiful, photogenic family!!

Teresa Lujan - They are all so adorable but numbers 3, 4, and 5 are especially so.

Lee Ann Pickering - It is a hard call, because they are all very good, but I have to go with #5. Loved the family portrait too!

Sarah Spann - Love Love Love Little Miss Claire Bear #4! It is amazing how you caught the twinkle in her beautiful baby blues. Perfect photo.

sabrina - they are all precious shots! but i think #5 and #6 are my favorites – beautiful baby, beautiful mommy, beautiful family!

Lola - Well, I like them all but I especially like #6 because I love b&w and Darren isn’t so bad to look at, either. I also like #2. First, you can see that sweet baby neck which is just my favorite part of a baby and I like that she’s totally taken with something off-camera and will be investigating that soon. Also, you get the full effect of those cheeks! Great job. Great subject.

heather - you are simply amazing! i just adore all of these! your clients are so lucky to have you–you truly create priceless art!

Rhonda Stark - lovely lovely lovely .. all of them! but i’m going to have to vote for #4 .. and i love the family image too!

Bobbi Presser - Great pictures. I’m with Don. #5 is my favorite.
Wonderful shots and they really catch her personality.
Great Aunt Bobbi

Carolyn Glover - Absolutely beautiful photos of Miss Claire! I vote for #3!

Jane Eaton Hamilton - Oh, she’s so dear. Love that last one esp.

Amy Pickering - These pictures are wonderful. Such an adorable baby and great faces! My favorite is #3 because Claire is just so darn happy! As others noted, the family shot is also great!

mandy - these are pure brilliance. when i see my own family photographed, this is how i see it. i just love everything about your work. My fav for the baby is #3 for sure…

Jane and Alan Raphael - Number one for Claire. Those eyes and her mouth convey a look of wonder. They are part of the beauty of Claire Bear. Nice soft light evokes a feeling of baby beauty. Can’t wait to put her in our arms.

Heather Rabineau - I love them all! She’s SO cute. #1 and #5 are my favorite. I love the family photo too. Love Autie Heather 🙂

Shane and Ashton Rabineau - Ashton and I love baby Claire in all of them. #4 is Ashton’s favorite photo of his cousin. We also love the family photo.
