Family Photo Session - San Francisco

This was one of my favorite photo sessions.  We met up near their house and walked to the beach.  I absolutely loved documenting an afternoon in their lives.  They brought a bench and were determined to get a "walking on water" shot.  We all ended up soaking wet, but laughing the entire time.  I know it created some magical memories for their kids.

Holiday Family Sessions - 2017

This family was ahead of the curve and got their photos done in June.  It was perfect! They have four boys and I love all of the boy energy, it reminds me of my kids.  I knew we needed a place we could be out and about exploring and capturing memories.

Holiday Family Sessions - 2017

Each year I love seeing these kids grow up just a little more.  We started when the baby was literally a 2 month old baby and now he's 3!  Time flies.  We did two shoots with this family as K wasn't feeling great during our first go round.  All in all we got some fun photos.

Holiday Family Sessions - 2017

The last time this family asked for photos, I was very pregnant with my now 2 year old and just couldn't do it.  This time I was excited to be able get out and capture them.  They win the award for the most patient family, because on the day we took these photos it was over 100 degrees.  They had on their Fall jackets but were sweating big time.  You wouldn't know it by looking at them right?!? Thanks for a fun adventure Q family!

Holiday Family Sessions - 2017

It really is an honor each year to take this family's photos.  They are our life long friends, and I know they could choose anyone to take their pictures, but they ask me which means the world to me.  So here's to another year of fun family photos!

Holiday Family Sessions

2018 is in full swing and I'm bringing you some of my favorite photos from my 2017 holiday sessions!

I love watching these boys grow every year.  Their sessions always remind me of chasing after my three boys.  They are full of action and adventure!
