I adored getting to see this family again the past fall! They chose me as their family photographer last year and I was thrilled when they contacted me again to take some updated photos for them! So fun to be able to watch this sweet girl grow as a bay area family photographer. If you want to see their session from last year, head to this link!

We chatted for a while about what location would be best for their session, and ended up with this hilltop location in Livermore! It’s one of my favorites, for obvious reasons. The haze in the air lingered, a result of wildfires around the state. I love the painted feeling that it gives images, it truly is a one of a kind effect! This spot is gorgeous no matter what time of year you visit it. In the fall the hills have turned a beautiful golden color. In the spring it’s filled with tall green grass. Each has its own unique beauty to it, but I especially love it in the fall. The golden hills are the perfect neutral backdrop for photos!

Their outfits were so wonderful for Fall, with mom in a gorgeous flowing yellow dress. It was the perfect compliment to the nearby scenery of rolling hills and oak trees. I love that she chose to wear a little pop of color, to go with the rest of her family who wore more neutral tones. And let’s not forget those darling pig tails on their daughter, they’re just too sweet! Scroll below to see their session!
