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!

Petaluma Family and Children’s Portrait Photographer. Petaluma Holiday Photographer. The Yebra Family.

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 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!

Petaluma Family and Children’s Portrait Photographer in Sonoma County. The Bailey Family.

The Bailey Family has no shortage of personality with these darling children which makes shooting their family portraits so fun and dynamic.  I love how they wore flower crowns in their family portrait shoot and we walked deep onto the hillside at an open lot in Petaluma to take advantage of the verdant foliage abound.  I mean look at these adorable girls and their parents aren’t so bad either.  Renee is the sweetest momma ever and I’m happy to be their family portrait photographer.

Childrens and Family portrait Photographer. Petaluma, Sonoma County. The Pitney Family.

A family portrait shoot in Petaluma in Sonoma County. Love taking family and children’s portraits under the live oak trees of Petaluma.  Being a family and children’s portrait photogapher I get to scout out the most obscure locations for their backdrops of their family portraits.  I love the natural light cascading in throught the leaves to highlight them.  Just look at these stunning faces…

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

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!
