Hribar Family: San Francisco Family Photographer

I first met the Hribar Family when the boys were about 6 months old... How much fun to see them again around their first birthday!!

Shooting little babies before they crawl is one thing... You can pick a background and place the kids on it, and you are pretty much in control. It's not like they are going anywhere...  But at this age its a whole other story.  They aren't old enough to still still and look at the camera, but they are old enough to move around on their own.  The best thing is just to do what they do, and have fun with it. If they are rolling around on the floor, I'm rolling around on the floor.  If they are running around, I'm running right after them, if they start to cry- someone better give me a hug and a cookie ;)
 With two dogs and twin one year old boys, this family has got their hands full of a lotta love in the most adorable form.. I tried to capture that in all its hectic glory with the whole family on the bed (dogs too, of course!)

Yippee!  We had a blast- maybe not all of us got to go up that high... but still, thanks for visiting with me Hribar Family.
