The golden grass of the Fall and beautiful hilltop sunsets are always a great backdrop for family portraits if you ask me! I absolutely loved getting to meet up with the amazing Meyer family for their family photos. Their daughter was adorable and mama was expecting a little brother soon, so we got some sweet photos of her bump! I really loved how down to earth this family was, they were so easy to talk to- and very go with the flow! That’s always a perk for an Oakland Family Photographer, like myself. I love when clients are just there and are down for whatever inspiration you have!

I loved that they chose this simple spot for their session, it really allowed them as a family to shine. Those hills are so stunning, and are certainly a perk of living in the Bay Area!

I love how they are so picturesque, yet they aren’t too “showy” at all. The big oak tree at this spot also offers an organic feel to photos. No matter what time of year it’s just stunning with all it’s green leaves and branches reaching towards the earth! This family was true to their roots, with dad in his cowboy boots and jeans. Mom wore a gorgeous top and scarf. And soon to be big sister was in a darling dress too! All the colors of their outfits corresponded great! See for yourself below!
