Senior Portrait Photographer Petaluma, Sonoma County and Marin. Catherine Anne.

Love this gorgeous girl and loved taking her senior portraits in Petaluma even more.  We had so much romping around the town finding great spots for backdrops in her senior photos.  We took the cover photo at the most amazing restaurant, Della Fattoria, as all the lights just make her shine!  Wishing her the best on her next endeavor in life…College at University Nevada Reno.  Big Hugs!

Bacara Wedding Photographer in Santa Barbara. Fielding and Larry.

Noone and I mean noone can make you laugh like Fielding and Larry!  They had the most incredibly FUN wedding at Bacara Resort in Santa Barbara complete with limbo dancing.  Their choreographed first dance was enough to give you cramps in your stomach from laughing.  They are simply made for one another and I cannot wait to see their journey as it unfolds. Mazel Tov to the most animated and cool couples out there!

Maternity Portrait Photographer in Petaluma, Sonoma County. Desiree and Austin.

Getting to be a maternity photographer is one of my favorite things as there really is nothing more exciting than bringing a child into the world.  It’s such a fun creative time to get to explore ideas in your maternity portrait photography.  I love using natural light and if you can see the sun rays almost beckoning Desiree and Austin’s baby to come out and see the light, you’ll understand how magical light is.  We did their maternity session at a private ranch off D Street in Petaluma in Sonoma County and we had fun exploring the property.  We were about to wrap up when Austin says, “Wait, we need one more maternity photograph.”  Then, he goes over to his truck and grabs his hunting rifle and he says….”This is for all the boys that are gonna try to date my daughter.”  Both Desiree and I could not stop laughing.  This little one is gonna be Daddy’s little girl for sure!

Wedding Photographer at Falkirk Cultural Center in San Rafael, Marin County. Mariya and Evan.

Mariya and Evan are two of the kindest souls and smart….did I mention smart?  Oh boy they smart and they got the degrees from ivy league schools to prove it.  But they are kind too which makes you just love them anymore.  I loved being the wedding photographer for these two and especially at The Falkirk Cultural Center in San Rafael in Marin County.  The place screams to me, The Royal Tenenbaums, the movie that starred Gwenyth Paltrow.  So it has all it’s quirky grooves and crannies and the place seems to take on a persona in itself.  I really can get lost taking wedding portraits in the gardens or in the parlor on the french love seat —well basically all over the mansion.  I love these two and hope they continue to have the best times of their lives together.  And being that these two are so smart…I’m sure they’ll do just that.

Family Portrait Photographer in Marin County- Point Reyes Shipwreck, Inverness, CA The Gregors

These charming family portraits were taken in a couple of the most visually interesting Marin County location–the  uber cool Point Reyes Shipwreck in Inverness. So fun being a family portrait photographer and seeing the love between children and their parents.  These images were taken with natural light in an artistic setting.  We played around the bouquet as a prop in these family portraits and had a wonderful time exploring all over Marin County for great locations for a family portrait backdrop!

Newborn photographer in Petaluma, Sonoma and Marin in San Francisco Bay Area. Evelyn.

Look at this beautiful darling newborn baby!  I just love them.  I decided to wrap her in cheese cloth and make it almost womb like.  It was a beautiful spring day so we could take her outside for her newborn portrait session in Petaluma.  She was just a dream!  I love being a newborn portrait photographer!  I’m so lucky and I love her parents too –I got to photograph their amazing wedding!  xoxo

Family and Childrens Portrait photographer in Petaluma, Dillion Beach. Lifestyle and documentary. Sonoma, Sebastopol, Marin, Healdsburg.The Reusers

Family portraits for the holidays shot in Dillon Beach, Sonoma County with the awesome Reuser Family.  They were up for anything!  I loved how they all got barefoot and took their family portraits in the ocean.  They also wanted to include their family dog in their holiday photographs so he got in them as well!  We took family photos at sunset where their reflections were so definitive in these family portraits.  I love Sonoma Country for it’s sunsets and Dillion Beach is a great location to have them.  They even allow dogs!

 

 

Family and Childrens Portrait photographer in Petaluma, Lifestyle and documentary. Sonoma, Sebastopol, Marin, Healdsburg. Cover Family Photography Session

The Covers family portraits were shot in the mustard fields of Petaluma in Sonoma County.  I photographed them in an artistic style for a photo session in a local magazine called Historic Life of Petaluma.  These photographs were shot photo journalistically and  laid out in an editorial style with a write up of this beautiful family and the Foundry Wharf which is a warehouse district the Cover family owns down by the Petaluma River.  The Foundry Wharf houses Aqus Cafe and many other business and boutique shops. Photographing the children was a delight as I let them run around their parents properties and shoot them in true photo journalism style which is how I think kids convey their true selves.

Petaluma Family and Childrens Portrait Photographer in Sonoma County. The Battaglino Family.

Nothing beats Marin and Sonoma County in the Fall for family and children’s portrait photography.  The leaves scream bold colors which are perfect backdrop for your kids portrait session and their photos will embolden you to do it every year.  Each backdrop is like a impressionistic painting when you shoot a shallow depth of field which I love to do so children and the family shine in their family photos.  I love Steve Battaglino whom is the best chiropractor in Petaluma should you find yourself in need of one.  His website is Battaglino Family Chiropractic in case you should find you need one.  Best to his family!
