San Francisco, California
Struck by pure love one more time.
I first met Shirley, Filippo, and soon-to-be big brother Gianluca at the popular Matheson Hammock Park for Shirley’s maternity session.
Shirley was radiant. Just a beautiful mix of sweetness, elegance, and serenity. Here and there, between shots, while posing Shirley, I could see Filippo looking at her in the most loving and admiring way. Their love and warmth as partners and parents is real magic, of the good kind.
Baby Filippo made them a family of four a couple of months later. They came into my tiny studio and filled the room with their authentic love and it was obvious that they love baby Filippo as much as they love Gianluca.
I witnessed how they evolved and grew as a family and how their love multiplied in equal parts. No dilution of love here; it still flowed strong and deep despite the sleep depravation that ensues the first days of life of a new baby. They were happy and it showed and I loved it.
Thank you Shirley and Filippo for trusting me with your precious memories!
