I loved getting to see this beautiful family again this fall! I first met them last fall when they hired me to take some family photos for them, and then I got to see them again this year! It’s so fun to see how quickly kiddos change in just 1 years time!

For their session I headed out to their neck of the woods in Oakland. I’ve been itching to do some sessions out there, especially at Piedmont Community Park. I first found the park when I shot a wedding there years ago, back when I was a wedding photographer not a family photographer! And I’ve been wanting to go back ever since. It’s the most beautiful little oasis right in the middle of Piedmont for family photos! They were dressed perfectly for their session, with mama in the most beautiful pink dress, which was such a fun pop of color! And everyone else in coordinating pinks, blues, and greys! It’s such a great bonus, as an Oakland Family photographer, to be able to see the same families over and over again. They even brought their adorable pup along and he was able to make an appearance.

Now that i’ve been there again, I cannot wait to return! So who’s ready for a family session out in Piedmont! I’m so excited to be adding more and more session locations to my little rolodex! I love being able to suggest a wide variety of session locations to clients depending on their preference. One of my favorite things about these photos is the beautiful white flowers and the lush green plants! Those lush plant’s we don’t get out in the Livermore area this time of year, but they always seem to be thriving out in Oakland!
