If I told you that Elsa from Frozen made a guest appearance at their photo session would you believe me? I love it when little kids bring a small trinket to photo sessions, but what I love even more is when parents don’t care if they show up in the photos. I really enjoyed getting to know the Lin family over their fall mini session this past September. It was so fun to be their Livermore family photographer! Their outfits were perfectly planned and full of beautiful fall tones, which was the perfect compliment to the golden grass at our location. We took breaks to play games and look at the nearby ducks, who came as soon as we arrived hoping we had treats for them (sorry ducks, nothing for you here!). But of course we got lots of beautiful family photos for them to print and frame and send out of those wonderful Christmas cards!

This little spot is along a trail not too far from my house, and is such a great location for mini sessions! There’s this tree that perfectly filters the morning sun and the tall golden grass that is the best neutral backdrop. Although the tree has now lost its leaves for the winter, you better believe that i’ll be scheduling some more sessions there as soon as it gets some leaves back again! Locations like this are some of the best ones- not too far of a walk from parking, not crowded, and the best little nook and cranny for some beautiful images!
