San Francisco Family and Newborn Photographer. Palace of Fine Arts Newborn and Family Portrait. The Sheldon Family.

Look at this little love of a baby, Carson, giving his Blue Steele at 3 months.  Cutest little guy and got to see a swan and the ducks while we snapped photos at The Palace of Fine Arts and then The Sheldon’s love home in the Marina District.  Another holiday photo session done!

San Francisco Portrait Photographer. Fort Point Portrait Session. The Walker Family. Petaluma Portrait Photographer.

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.

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!

Wedding and engagement photographer in San Francisco. Engagement session in Golden Gate Park. Monica and Frank.

As a wedding  and engagement photographer in San Francisco I find this location to be so unparalleled in it’s beauty!   The light that pours through the trees and the massive live oak trees dripping in moss is utterly spectacular.  This couple’s scenic and romantic engagement in Golden Gate Park and on a trail overlooking glorious Baker Beach as a bay area wedding and engagement photographer made me thrilled beyond words to snap away and create artistic and photojournalistic moments for them.  Two words.   Pure happiness!
