Mortero family portrait photography session

Tinywater presents Sacramento portrait photography of little Maxine’s first birthday! We have been shooting Mark, Stephanie, and Maxine for years! We also did a maternity session as well as a newborn photo shoot with them! Maxine’s birthday party theme was ‘Where the Wild Things Are’, and it looks like the wild things are in the Japanese Tea Gardens and the de Young Museum! This was such an exciting session, we adored the birthday girl’s outfits, from red dress to monster one piece! Mom and Dad also got into the monster spirit, Mark wore a fuzzy-furry hat, and Stephanie wore black and orange furry ears! Both Mark and Stephanie love cool shoes (as you can see), Stephenie was wearing drool-worthy heels and Mark’s shoes were awesome! We love the pop of color their shoes give. Maxine was a joy to shoot, she was so funny! We’re so happy that Mark and Stephanie Chose us to photograph their daughter’s first birthday! We at Tinywater really enjoyed this shoot, and we hope you will love checking out these portraits we took!

Check out Stephanie’s super cute heels! Christian Louboutins! And how adorable is Maxine?!
