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

 

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!

Family portraits for the holidays shot in Dillon Beach, Sonoma County with the awesome Reuser Family.  They were up for anything!  I loved how they all got barefoot and took their family portraits in the ocean.  They also wanted to include their family dog in their holiday photographs so he got in them as well!  We took family photos at sunset where their reflections were so definitive in these family portraits.  I love Sonoma Country for it’s sunsets and Dillion Beach is a great location to have them.  They even allow dogs!

 

 

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 Childrens Portrait Photographer, Sonoma County. The Ribeiro Children.

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

So much fun photographing the Vallone Family in Petaluma in Sonoma County.  I also got to use their gorgeous house in the historic district of Petaluma as the backdrop for their family portraits and of course take children’s portraits of their beautiful little boy for the Historic District of Petaluma Magazine.  I love shooting documentary and lifestyle photography as I get to be a bit of a spy in other’s people lives for a couple moments.

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…
