This family was an absolute joy to be able to capture! I’ve taken their family photos for over a year now, and I love seeing them every time. They’re the sweetest clients that feel like friends whenever I get to chat with them. And I love getting to watch their girls grow, and just genuinely appreciate the fact that they entrust their special moments with me! I’m so honored that I get to be their SF Bay Area Family Photographer

They scheduled this fun session because their little one was coming up on her first birthday, so they wanted some family photos and to do a little cake smash too (photos of that coming soon!). So we met up at one of my absolute favorite spots in the Bay Area. I recently re-discovered it, and let me tell you it is so dreamy and gorgeous! The trees are adorned with fall leaves, and the open field is perfect at sunset. I cannot wait to do more sessions here!

But back to this amazing family! They knocked it out of the park with their wardrobe, per usual. I loved their neutral color palette with a pop of minty green. It really complimented the green grass that was popping up.. hooray for rain! And one of my favorite things about this session, and this family, is that they love candids! They just hang out and play and are so relaxed at their sessions. And let me tell you, parents, that’s the way to go! The candids are sure to be your favorites, and once you let go of those expectations and just have fun at your session. That’s when your true family shines!
