What’s better than family photos, family photos with your little pup too! I really enjoyed meeting up with this sweet family at one of my favorite spots in Pleasanton for their family photos! Their little kiddos were too sweet and their puppy was too! I especially loved the soft color palette of their outfits, and how well it complimented the surrounding scenery. The pastel colors of the trim on the buildings was the perfect tone with mama’s blush dress!

Little sis was so sweet in her bare feet and bow that matched her brother! And mama’s pink dress was so gorgeous and flowy! Long dresses are becoming one of my favorite things for moms to wear to photos! It was the perfect morning to be their Pleasanton family photographer! They arrived all camera ready and we got in some super sweet photos before the sun became too harsh. I really love taking short and sweet family photos like this. It’s a great opportunity to get some sweet shots of the whole family, and some great individual photos too. Sessions like these are ideal for families with little one’s (and pups!) because the location isn’t too far of a walk and you end up with so many darling photos to print, frame, and even use of your Christmas cards!
