Peek Aren’t You Curious Pre Spring Shoot

I’m still playing catch-up and posting shoots from late in 2009. I was unable to be at Peek’s recent spring shoot because I was with my family in Ohio, but these images are from Peek’s pre-spring line, which we shot in San Francisco in late November. We lucked out with the most amazing weather…70+ degrees!

Making the most out of some really tough light…

Thanks to Tina and Erin for making the shoot such a success and thanks to all of the little ones who made it so much fun! After the shoot our family stopped at the most delicious Middle Eastern place for lunch (the little guy ordered pancakes) and then we went straight to the awesome playground in Golden Gate Park for the rest of the afternoon. Even I can’t get enough of that playground…

It is nice to be back!
