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!

Look at these adorable kids!  I had a blast photographing The Walker Family at Fort Point under the Golden Gate Bridge and at Chrissy Field.  I love shooting family portraits at Fort Point as the light is so golden and dramatic.

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.

Petaluma Family and Childrens Portrait Photographer in Sonoma County. The MacKenzie Family.

Love love love being a Family and children’s portrait photographer in Petaluma.  I travel to Mill Valley in marin County to photograph children’s and family portraits as well and these adorable boys made the trip totally worth it.  We had so much shooting these lifestyle photos and laughed our heads off.  These photos capture so much as documenting your kids is the most wonderful thing you can do for them and for you!

Family and Childrens Portrait Photographer in Petaluma, Sonoma County. The Campbell Family.

Love photographing these family and children’s portraits and this little girl is so darling!  We had so much fun as I photographed them at their home and so everyone was so at ease.  I love lifestyle photography and getting to be a spy for the day as I look for magical moments.  Being a family and children’s portrait photographer in Petaluma in Sonoma County is the the most incredible thing ever.  Family and children’s portraits are everything!

Family and Childrens Portrait Photographer in Petaluma. The Bisordi Family.

Ummmmmm…..vwatt???  Look into those tide pool blue eyes!  Let’s say Monica and Frank can make a cute baby!  Love here to pieces.  This was so sweet as I also photographed her mommy and Daddy’s wedding at The Julia Morgan Ballroom in San Francisco a few years before.  So it was so fun to meet them and Monica’s extended family at The Japanese Tea Garden in San Francisco’s Golden Gate Park to take some family and children’s portraits.  Love getting to be a family and kids portrait photographer for my clients after I’ve photographed their wedding.  I get to be a part of their journey the whole way through.  It’s quite an honor and I’m so amazed by how fast these families grow!

Belvedere Tiburon Family and Childrens Portrait Photographer. The Ivory Family.

The Ivory Family is just wonderful and all are super photogenic.  It doesn’t hurt either that Dirk’s home is over looking the San Francisco Bay and with views like that you’d be hard pressed not to get fantastic family portraits. There is a caveat though as photographing portraits on a sunny day where the backdrop is lighter than your subject you have to add fill flash.  That way the people you are photographing aren’t underexposed.  It’s a finely tuned nuance photographers have to master if you want beautifully lit subjects with backgrounds like this.  But, we did it and have gorgeous photos for life!

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!

I love this family and I have been so lucky to have been their family portrait and birthday event photographer since they were one years old.  It is such an honor to be able to document each year that goes by.  I mean how cute are these kids?  Love them.  Until next year…..xoxo
