Robbins Family// Lifestyle Shoot

RobbinLifestyleblog-10 Robbins Family// Lifestyle Shoot portraits
I don’t post family portraits often. To be completely honest, it’s more natural for me to shoot a wedding. I walk into a wedding knowing exactly what I want to shoot. The story, the emotions, the small in between intimate moments. Weddings are overflowing with it. Love is saturated all around you.
With families I want to shoot the same things–the story, the emotions, and the intimate moments. Often times what family photo shoots often lack is the story. And that is why I LOVE lifestyle shoots. They are family portraits with a story.
The way you get your little ones dressed in the mornings. Your daughter’s favorite book. The way you make meals together. The home you’ve made together. Your favorite tree in your backyard blooming. The way you do bath time with you newest addition.
Lifestyle shoots are all about celebrating person-hood.
I’m a huge fan of that.

Zach & Jess // Wedding

Mazotti+Blog-455 Zach & Jess // Wedding wedding
Zach and Jess got married in the Livermore hills at Poppy Ridge Golf Course surrounded by people who love them. The wedding took place four days before Christmas and as usual California winter is rather forgiving. Anywhere else would have been a snow storm, but in California it’s blue skies and
rolling green hills. Ah, California. Sometimes I think I want to live somewhere else, but then I realize that I probably couldn’t survive a winter anywhere else.
 When his bride walked down the aisle, it’s as if they found what they’ve been searching for. As if walking down that aisle both of them whispered, “oh, there you are.”

Cassie and Brady // Engagement

candb-101 Cassie and Brady // Engagement engagement
 I love the small window of time I got to be in their life. Cassie and Brady are east coast natives who met in college in Utah. Newly engaged, they were visiting the west coast and thought that would make for a pretty awesome engagement shoot. Spot on, because getting pictures of Cassie touching the Pacific Ocean for the first time was awesome to witness!
But more than that, I get to witness the start of something incredible. A new start. So sincere and pure. She’s spunky and he loves her for it. He’s steadfast and she loves him for it.
Together these two fit. You can see it in how they hold each other and how they look at each other.
Somewhere in their hearts, they’ve made a place for each other. Carving out more and more room as they fall more in love with each growing day.
