Family and Children’s Portrait Photographer -Petaluma, CA

To say I love ūüėć this family is putting it mildly. O’Meara is the epitome of grace and beauty and her and Bill Cover‘s daughter’s reflect their kindness and radiance. We managed to laugh our way through this photo shoot capturing everyone’s personalities, get a headshot of O’Meara Cover, lifestyle photos and great family shots to be revealed after the holidays.

Is there anything more inviting than a door? ¬†I love framing children and families in doors in their family portrait photography. ¬†It’s like a welcoming in of sorts and natural light is usually also at it’s best in the frame of a doorway. ¬†It’s not unusual for me to take a jaunt around a family’s neighborhood looking for great backdrops for family and children’s portraits in Sonoma and Marin County. ¬† These little spitfire girls were bursting with personality and I had a ton of fun photographing them in this lifestyle shoot.

Children’s and Family Portraiture is all about making it fun and comfortable for everyone. ¬†Because deep down we all want to be seen and heard and shine! ¬†Natural lighting for family and children’s portraits is also key as you want it be dynamic but I like to shoot with the most shallow depth of field so you have beautiful bokeh. ¬†That way the children or family you are shooting is the star of the photograph and the background enhances it by looking like a gorgeous Monet painting. And voila! ¬†Look at these two sisters whom I just adore to pieces and in fact so does my son, Hudson. ¬†So stinking cute are Lucia and Mila. ¬†xoxo
