The week of Thanksgiving I got to meet up with this amazing family to take some family photos for them! I loved chatting with them leading up to their session, helping them plan out their outfits that they would wear and getting to know them. We met up at one of my favorite local locations that I love to frequent as a Walnut Creek family photographer.

Their oldest daughter was back home visiting for the time being so they made it a priority to get some updated family photos, since it had been a while since they had taken some! I loved the hues that they chose for their outfits. From the blue’s to the creams and grey’s, they all flowed so nicely together!

Our location is one of my favorites, especially in those fall months. There’s beautiful big sycamore trees that showcased their changing leaves that are so lovely to have photography by! I absolutely loved the soft fall colors that were present for their session, it was nearing the end of fall and into winter. So the colors were still beautiful but still subtle, such a perfect backdrop!

Just from the short time that I spent with them one afternoon, I was able to see that they are such a fun family! They were all so sweet and down to earth. I’m so glad that I got to capture these special moments for them as a family. I hope that these images are something that they cherish and look back on for years to come!
