I love love love this family!  They couldn’t be cuter and it was so to photograph them with this beautiful light under the live oak trees.  We had them on the tire swing as who doesn’t like a tire swing in their family photographs?  I love being a family and children’s photographer especially when you get these adorable smile behind your lens!  All these family portraits were shot at a private home in the county in Petaluma.

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!

Look at this dashing family I photographed in Petaluma, Sonoma County for their family holiday photos.  Using natural light in an artistic back lit way I highlighted them like angels in their family portraits.  I love aligning the sun right behind my subjects when possible as it allows them to just glow!  Beautiful family in their holiday photos all shot in the country in Petaluma, CA!

The Ferrettis family portraits were shot at Howarth Park in Santa Rosa, CA.  I loved the beautiful moss growing everywhere from all the rain so I photographed the childrens portraits while they were playing in a documenty style. The colors were highly saturated and their images are full of vitality and love.  What a fun shoot to be a family photographer on as I adore this cute family!

I was so excited to shoot The Smiths’s family portraits and in their grandparents gorgeous gardens.  The photos look so clean and crisp with a touch of Monet.  Perfect for Springtime.  I love the kids portraits here as they are so sweet with their siblings and mothers. And why not throw your family dog into the photo shoot as well?  In this photo shoot, we decided to keep it in Petaluma as that is where all the families are based.  Such a happy and adorable family to photograph for spring portraits

The Zambrano Family Portraits were shot at Jack London State Park in Glen Ellen, Sonoma County with the most vibrant colors in the vineyards. Their boy was having so much running around while I did childrens portraiture.  It was such a beautiful day and I highly recommend booking a family portrait session at Jack London State Park in Sonoma County.
