The darling Lewis family, where do I even begin? I’ve been photographing them for years, and I mean years. The first time I ever met Brad and Amy was when they were expecting their first baby and they chose me to take maternity photos for them! Since them i’ve been able to be their Family Photographer on a few other occasions too. Fast forward to today when they have two of the most adorable kids! I haven’t seen them in a few years, so seeing them again and being their Walnut Creek Family Photographer was a treat! 

Brad contacted me wanting to surprise Amy with a photo session for her birthday. Hint Hint husbands, photos as a gift is always a great gift idea. They booked one of my fall mini sessions and it was a blast! Their kiddos were super fun and I really love the images that I got of all of them. We found the perfect spot with some pretty trees that were changing color for Fall but there was also a lot of open space. Open space is such a dream for me when shooting, since it usually means great light! Their session ended as the sun was dipping down in the autumn sky and which means golden hour. And the light filtering through the trees at golden hour is some of my favorite lighting for sessions.

Their session is one of the many amazing family sessions I got to capture this past fall for my annual Fall Mini’s. If you want to be in the know of when I offer more mini sessions, feel free to contact me and ask to be added to my email list!
