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

I loved photographing these children’s portraits!  They were as busy as little bees chasing bubbles for their holidays photos in which I shot in their backyard in Petaluma in Sonoma County. I loved the bokeh with the monet background which makes the photos look more luminescent and artistic!

 

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

Look at this dashing family I photographed in Petaluma, Sonoma County for their family holiday photos.  Using natural light in an artistic back lit way I highlighted them like angels in their family portraits.  I love aligning the sun right behind my subjects when possible as it allows them to just glow!  Beautiful family in their holiday photos all shot in the country in Petaluma, CA!

 

Wedding Photographer. Wedgewood at The Foxtail Golf Club in Rohnert Park, CA. Sonoma. Desiree and Cameron

Desiree & Cameron were married in Rohnert Park at The Foxtail Golf Club.  It’s a gorgeous backdrop for wedding photographs and there are such beautiful trees and a gazebo for your wedding ceremony.  Then of course you can go all out with the twinkle lights to create a fantastic dance floor for your reception wedding photographs. As a wedding photographer I think it’s fun to slow your shutter down and wipe the camera so the lights sorta dance and do halos under the couple.  I think this gives an artistic touch to the wedding photographs and highlights the couple dancing or giving a toast.

 

 

Wedding Photographer at Merryvale Winery in St. Helena, Napa Valley. Ebony and Jerome

Ebony and Jerome were married at the Merryvale Winery in St. Helena and talk about a farm table–just look at how decadent that looks with all the candles on it!  I loved the emotion of this couple as it’s showing in their wedding photographs at Merryvale and at the ceremony.

 

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

The Ferrettis family portraits were shot at Howarth Park in Santa Rosa, CA.  I loved the beautiful moss growing everywhere from all the rain so I photographed the childrens portraits while they were playing in a documenty style. The colors were highly saturated and their images are full of vitality and love.  What a fun shoot to be a family photographer on as I adore this cute family!

Wedding photographer at the Generals Residence in San Francisco. Janie and Jim.

A grilled cheese truck and a donut truck, and a gaggle of glamorous red shoes — this wedding was a blast to photograph. The General’s Residence in San Francisco’s Fort Mason is a magnificent venue for a wedding with incredible views of The San Francisco Bay. If you want your wedding photos to parlay the beauty of San Francisco then look no further as this venue is close enough to the Palace of Fine Arts where you can photograph your wedding party and also have enough time to photograph your wedding couple portraits at Chrissie Fields to get the iconic photos of The Golden Gate Bridge in your wedding attire. So much Fun being the wedding photographer on this awesome wedding and who doesn’t want a donut late into the night.  Nicely done Janie and Jim!

 

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

I was so excited to shoot The Smiths’s family portraits and in their grandparents gorgeous gardens.  The photos look so clean and crisp with a touch of Monet.  Perfect for Springtime.  I love the kids portraits here as they are so sweet with their siblings and mothers. And why not throw your family dog into the photo shoot as well?  In this photo shoot, we decided to keep it in Petaluma as that is where all the families are based.  Such a happy and adorable family to photograph for spring portraits

Family and Childrens Portrait photographer in Petaluma, Glen Ellen. Lifestyle and documentary. Sonoma, Sebastopol, Marin, Healdsburg, Sonoma County.

The Zambrano Family Portraits were shot at Jack London State Park in Glen Ellen, Sonoma County with the most vibrant colors in the vineyards. Their boy was having so much running around while I did childrens portraiture.  It was such a beautiful day and I highly recommend booking a family portrait session at Jack London State Park in Sonoma County.

Wedding photographer at Allied Arts in Menlo Park. Hilary and Ryan

This was a small wedding (almost an elopement) at The Allied Arts Guild in Menlo Park which is a stunning garden oasis having your wedding photography here is a fantastic idea.  Such beautiful gardens to capture classic wedding photographs and Hilary and Ryan wanted just that.  Classic couple as well!

 

Wedding photographer in Petaluma, Sonoma County. Under the Stars in the Country. Gianna and Blaine.

Now this wedding was so emotionally charged I lost it a couple times myself during the toasts.  As you can see by their wedding photos, there isn’t a dry eye during the speeches.  I loved this couple as they are practically like family to me and the live oak trees make such a gorgeous backdrop in these editorial style wedding photographs. I photographed most of the wedding in true photo journalism style except for the couple portraits where I photographed them in a more fashion forward style.  Fantastic Couple and a huge Congrats to Gianna and Blaine whom had their wedding in my home town of Petaluma, CA!
