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 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!

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!

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.

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.

Look at this radiant red truck all primed and ready to take holiday portraits on and load a couple of Christmas trees up on top!  I love photographing Family and children’s portraits for the holidays, These were shot in Sebastopol in, Sonoma County. We also found the most gorgeous persimmons tree with the orange colors so decided to take some photos for fall too–Why Not?  I love being a photographer and getting to shoot these awesome families with natural light in all these delicious locations with these artistic photo backgrounds!
