3 Generations | Jenn Hoffmann Photography | Family Photographer | Bay Area

Grandma, a.k.a. "Nini" bought the girl's dresses while on vacation and they then decided they needed a "generations" picture!  Great idea- and something I need to do with the women in my own family!
Although it is almost July in California, it rained yesterday (with thunderstorms!) and today was cloudy and cool.  Not the type of weather you want when you are wearing these sweet summer dresses, but adorable regardless!
Between shots, the girls were bundled up in blankets, snacking on Cheerios and were being real troopers.  Despite the less than ideal conditions, we got some great captures.
Enjoy your sneak peek!

Love this expression...

Mommy and Me Photos! | Jenn Hoffmann Photography| Child Photographer| Bay Area

My "Mommy and Me" Mini Sessions were today and were a lot of fun!  I feel like they were such a long time coming!
I took a variety of pictures, which included Mom and all of her children, Mom and each of her children, her children together and each child separately!  I will have a hard time choosing which ones to present in the galleries!
A big thank you to Joan Godfrey for providing make up services to our Mommies!  She added just an extra "pop", so that everyone looked their best in front of the camera.  If you would like to learn more about Arbonne, please contact Joan at and/or (510) 333-2271
Thanks for the great day!  I'll be getting your full galleries to you shortly, but in the mean time here is a little sneak peek!  Enjoy!

San Diego 2011 | Jenn Hoffmann Photography | Personal| Bay Area

We traveled down to San Diego in April for a visit to Legoland and the many other fun things to do down there! It was Ella's first plane ride and she shockingly did great!  BUT the flight is only an hour (and Mommy had pounds of candy for bribes!)!
We "did" Legoland two days, played at the beach with my best friend and her daughter, visited the animals at San Diego Zoo, played in the pool, spent time with my brother and his girlfriend who live down there and my parents met us on the tail end of the trip too!  Busy, busy!
Here are some pics from our beach day... Ella HATED the sand for most of the day.  She didn't want it on her feet, didn't want to sit on it and didn't want it touching her AT. ALL.- kind of hard to do at the beach! ;)  But by the end of the day, she started exploring and began to enjoy it!

Playing in the FREEZING cold water...
Our bathing beauty- she would only sit on a towel at this point...

Hotel Del Coronado is in the background- it is supposed to be haunted!
Taking a walk with Pa...

Finally learned to like the feel of sand!

Chalk Painting | Jenn Hoffmann Photography| Personal| East Bay

This past weekend, my kids received a fabulous idea for a party gift... DIY Chalk Paint!  We mixed some of the concoction together today and got to work on the driveway.  Ella REALLY got in to it!
She's been practicing her smile... we're getting better! ;)

 Covered in marker, dirt, chalk and toe nail polish.... it was definitely a bath night!

The aftermath....

And one of our sweet boy on his last day of school today!  Just one more year of preschool and then it is on to Kindergarten (sniffle, sniffle...)
