One of my favorite things about being an Oakland Family Photographer is that I get to see the same families year after year and I also get to watch kiddos grow and change! I photographed the Koerner family last year and their littlies was just a tiny tike. He wasn’t even walking yet at the time, it was so fun to see them again and see that he’s much more of a toddler now. And not to mention his older brother is out of that toddler stage and into that little boy stage now! We met up on a Saturday morning to take their annual family photos and it was a blast!

Although little Henry was not feeling the photo session at first, eventually he warmed up to me. After some coaxing we managed to get some incredibly adorable photos! I love the challenge that photographing little ones brings- sometimes you just don’t know what you’re doing to get. Although that’s like with kids though, it’s a mystery sometimes what each day will be like!

The neutral color pallet they choose for their outfits was a great compliment for the changing leaves on the trees. Even though the morning was overcast, the vibrant colors of the trees was a great pop of color. There was also the grass that was just starting to turn green. Which is one of my favorite stages of the many colors that grass can be throughout the year.

This is one of my favorite spots for photos, it’s located in Livermore. Families always love it for their family photos. Although I’ve photographed here many times I found a new little nook that I just adore there. You better believe I will definitely using that corner of this spot more often.
