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.

Family and Childrens Portrait photographer in Petaluma, Lifestyle and documentary. Sonoma, Sebastopol, Marin, Healdsburg. Cover Family Photography Session

The Covers family portraits were shot in the mustard fields of Petaluma in Sonoma County.  I photographed them in an artistic style for a photo session in a local magazine called Historic Life of Petaluma.  These photographs were shot photo journalistically and  laid out in an editorial style with a write up of this beautiful family and the Foundry Wharf which is a warehouse district the Cover family owns down by the Petaluma River.  The Foundry Wharf houses Aqus Cafe and many other business and boutique shops. Photographing the children was a delight as I let them run around their parents properties and shoot them in true photo journalism style which is how I think kids convey their true selves.

 

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 Newborn photographer. Lani and Luca.

I was honored to shoot beautiful Lani’s newborn portraits in charming Petaluma. Such sweetness to be a newborn portrait photographer! They are so beautiful and innocent and I wish I could just freeze time a bit to capture these newborns essence a little longer.  It goes to fast so it’s so important to take newborn portraits and every stage of the way because when the time is over it’s over!  Love children’s portrait photography too!

Petaluma Senior Portrait Photographer. Sonoma County. Maddison

Maddison’s senior portraits were shot in the countryside of Petaluma and in Valley Ford. Taking senior portraits are really fun to be artistic using natural light. It’s a senior’s chance to be a model for the day so we have fun making the senior portrait images look editorial and fashion forward as well.  Senior portraiture is something you have a lifetime to reflect on as it’s a big landmark in your life!  Invest in your senior portraits as these become family heirlooms!

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!

I loved photographing these children’s portraits!  They were as busy as little bees chasing bubbles for their holidays photos in which I shot in their backyard in Petaluma in Sonoma County. I loved the bokeh with the monet background which makes the photos look more luminescent and artistic!
