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.

If you haven’t visited Petaluma in Sonoma County in the fall then you should put it on your list and if you can schedule a family and children’s portrait photography session than you are golden. The fall colors are gorgeous and there are so many trails to use as backdrops in your family portraits with using just natural light.  These two little girls are adorable and they had so much fun running up and down the hill we were on.  The key is to make children’s portraiture fun so you get their little personalities at their best.  Here’s to making memories!

What’s more incredible than a persimmons tree framing a little rustic shed?  I was ecstatic when I discovered it and I photographed Annika and her son in an out of the shed with natural light.  I love being a family portrait photographer in Petaluma  because the surrounding areas have endless backdrops for portrait photography.  This happened to be on a lot behind a Christmas Tree Farm in Sebastopol.  Beautiful momma whom I adore and her son Leif.  Portrait photography perfection. xoxo

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

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.
