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 Portrait Photographer- The Baxman Family Portrait Session

The Baxman family has been such a wonderful constant in our lives ever since TK when my son and Max started school 🚌together and they have been in every class since. Stephanie is pretty close to perfection and I’m so grateful 🙏🏻 to call her my friend. She wanted me to photograph their dog, Ben, as he’s getting up there. 🐹 I love 🥰 you guys mucho mas….and here’s to many more good times with our boys.

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! 🍨

Petaluma Family and Children’s photographer–The Dunton Family

Tiburon Family Photographer- Children’s Portrait Photographer -Chatham Family

I’ve been photographing the Chatham Family for awhile now and I love to see these beauties blossom into these expressive lovely girls.  I remember the firs time I came for a  photo session and I got one of Sam with her daughters both clinging to her legs crying and she was like go ahead and take the photos. This is motherhood in it’s reality.  I loved that. But, this time it was not the case as the girls had a blast taking photos and showing their true happy selves.  Sam and Matt then took out their paddle boards as they live on the bay in Tiburon and this is what they do as a family to unwind so I had a blast shooting away while they floated on the water.  Gorgeous day and gorgeous family…you can’t ask for more.

 

Family and Children’s Portrait Photographer -Petaluma, CA

To say I love 😍 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.

Petaluma newborn portrait photographer. Sonoma newborn Photographer session. Leilani.

I’m pretty sure this might be the most alert infant I have ever encountered so I’m thinking that Miss Leilani might work for NASA in the next 16 years. I felt like she was staring into my soul through the lens.  And….I just couldn’t be happier for Stephanie and Will.  I’m lucky enough to call Stephanie a friend and I couldn’t be happier for them.  Here’s to lots of cuddle time for you all. xoxo

 

Fairfax and Marin family and children’s portrait photographer. The Brook Family in Marin County.

Who doesn’t love secrets?  They are that ephemeral thing like a butterfly you want to hold onto forever, but alas…..the journey is short.  I loved shooting this family’s portraits in Fairfax in the redwoods.  It’s all about the little moments.

Family Portrait Photographer in Marin County- Point Reyes Shipwreck, Inverness, CA The Gregors

These charming family portraits were taken in a couple of the most visually interesting Marin County location–the  uber 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!
