I love love love this family!  They couldn’t be cuter and it was so to photograph them with this beautiful light under the live oak trees.  We had them on the tire swing as who doesn’t like a tire swing in their family photographs?  I love being a family and children’s photographer especially when you get these adorable smile behind your lens!  All these family portraits were shot at a private home in the county in Petaluma.

Look at these super fun kids!  They were hamming it up and laughing so hard while I photographed their family portraits, shot in Petaluma, CA. Their mom said she wanted to have children’s and family photographs that represented them the way they are so we let them run around the property and just be them.  She also used the silliest photo for their holiday card!  Nice move Mom!

 

Wedding Photographer at Calistoga Ranch. Napa Valley Crystal and Tom.

Crystal & Tom had their wedding at the awe-inspiring and rustic gem Calistoga Ranch in Calistoga, CA. Crystals dress was one princesses dream of having their wedding photographs taken in.  It was exceptional as was her decor with hanging votive candles everywhere and blossoms framing her in every wedding image.  Emotions were running high and happy tears were shed as this beautiful couple said their I do’s.  I loved the butterflies she had hanging over their table during the reception.  I loved them and feel their wedding wedding photographs reflected the artistic choices they made for their ambience.  Wish these two the best together!

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.

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!
