Midcentury Modern New Years Eve Eichler/Gangnam/Family Style


What could be better than a kids dance party complete with YMCA, Macarana and Gangnam style dancing, a lighted dance floor, a lighted limbo stick, and glow sticks galore?

Only a 9:00 pm balloon drop!!

Our neighbors Kyle & Sarah throw the BEST kid friendly New Year’s Eve party around.  The party itself is just SO MUCH FUN.  Laughter galore, ear to ear smiles and neighbors that have become great friends.

That last part – about neighbors being great friends – is the best part of the party and (in my opinion) mostly due to Ranch Del Diablo’s deep commitment to fostering community.  We never imagined when we bought this house that we would soon live surrounded by friends.  That’s a bonus that money can’t buy and a neighborhood feature that can’t be quantified on an MLS print out.

Kyle and Sarah – the party was one for the books!  Thanks for all you do in our community.

Natural Beauty

There is a big story behind these pictures that I don’t have time to tell right now.  I will soon, though.

Today was a big day and I needed some photos of Lucy today – right now- in this exact moment.  We had about 10 minutes before the light was gone and this is what we got.


What a natural.  Just as beautiful on the inside.

Love this girl.

East Bay Lifestyle Photographer | The Bensing Sisters

You know, when it comes to the most important elements of your photo session, I’m a big believer in a really personal location (like your home), some beautiful light, and lots and lots of FUN!


Also-being the cutest sisters in the world helps A LOT!

Add lots of cuddles to that list.  Cuddles are ESSENTIAL!

Alright – hot pink rain boots make a session pretty awesome too.

It all boils down to this: if you love each other, can laugh, cuddle and play – you’ll get great images.

I mean…check out this family.  Oozing with love.  The best.
