San Francisco Family Portrait Photographer, San Francisco lifestyle photographer -The Batalia Family

The Batalia Family just got these parakeets 🐦🐦 the day before I photographed them so they were the center of attention. I told Elena she was a brave mom as the bird seed fell all over the place more than once. And, I have been flipping out about cleaning the fish tank. 😬 We photographed most of these at their home in Seacliff as it was raining ☔️ but when we got a break we went into their backyard. Such an awesome family!

Petaluma Family Portrait Photographer -Petaluma Childrens and family Portrait Session- The Sarno Family

Usually to get kids to warm up I have to try to act silly to get them to open up… but the Sarno kids have more personality than you can imagine. These kids are hilarious.We had fun romping in the leaves and cracking up at each other. Love the Sarno family and wish them the best!!

 

Petaluma family and children’s photographer, The Craft Family Photography Portrait Session

Well, this family is just the cutest and I had fun getting some shots in their backyard with their cute doggie, Taxi.  What a great name.  I was amazed we found some leaves on the trees still and took advantage of golden hour.  Can’t wait to see some of these hung on their walls of their gorgeous home!

Point Reyes Family Portrait Photographer —

Point Reyes is such a fun escape from Petaluma and we captured some fun family photos of Marina, Harley and their kiddos, Penelope and Hudson. I took one look at Marina’s dress and I was like oh yeah we are gonna do some twirls with that! 💃 Luckily, they just moved from San Anselmo to Petaluma so we get to hang out more often with this awesome family!

Petaluma Family and Children’s Photographer -The Reynolds Family Portrait Session

These faces! They are all so full of personality. Kingston, the little guy, wasn’t feeling it in the beginning so we all went and got a wicked slush 🍧or a Starbucks to let the sugar kick in. As you can see it did it’s job. Kinyatta is one of the most vivacious, cool and all encompassing love mommas I know and she gives everything her all. I loved photographing her and John and her tribe. Here’s to more sessions infused with sugar! 🍨

San Rafael, Marin Family Portrait Photographer. Petaluma Portrait Photographer. Kabat Family.

When the backlight tips just rightly so on your family portrait session at China Camp Beach in Marin County you get this splendid halo of light.  I love how fleeting it is and if you don’t shoot fast you will miss it. We had a lot of fun exploring all the backdrops for the Kabat Family Holiday Portrait session.  Look at all that luminescent light!

Loving the fall colors in this holiday family portrait session I photographed in Petaluma.  This family was darling and we had a great time.

Petaluma Family and Children’s Portrait Photographer. The Low Family.

I love shooting family portraiture in my hometown of Petaluma.  There are so many great backgrounds for family portraits and children’s portraits around this historic town.  The Low Family is a very artistic and theatrical group so we had fun doing different set ups in various areas around town.

Marin Family Portrait photographer. Cypress Tree Tunnel,Inverness. The Lewis Family Portraiture

These charming family portraits were taken in a couple of the most visually interesting Marin County locations: Cypress Tree Tunnel in Inverness, and the hauntingly 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!
