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.

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.

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.

A family portrait shoot in Petaluma in Sonoma County. Love taking family and children’s portraits under the live oak trees of Petaluma.  Being a family and children’s portrait photogapher I get to scout out the most obscure locations for their backdrops of their family portraits.  I love the natural light cascading in throught the leaves to highlight them.  Just look at these stunning faces…

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
