I said it before and I’ll say it again… I absolutely love it when I get to document different seasons of life for the same family! I’ve been photographing the sweet little family since their daughter was a newborn and it has been so fun to watch her grow and change over the past few years. It is seriously the biggest honor to be chosen time and time again as someone’s family photographer! I got to take some fall family photos for them at one of my petite sessions this past fall and it was extra fun that it was in the location that we did their newborn photos at just a year and a half ago. One of the many perks of being a Bay Area family photographer is getting to photograph the same location in different seasons of the year. The same place can look so different depending on the time of year!

I loved the jewel tones of Mama‘s dress and how beautifully it photographed, seriously it was the perfect color for Christmas card photos. Their daughter was such a sweetheart and had changed so much since I saw her a year ago. She was just barely walking at that time and now she’s a full-blown toddler! It always blows my mind how much little kids change in those first few years. They grow so so quickly and it happens right before our eyes! I digress, their session was so lovely with the sun peaking through the sycamore trees. That morning light it so beautiful when you catch it just right!
