As a Bay Area family photographer, it’s so rewarding to follow the stages of a family’s life. I was lucky enough to be Chris and Tori’s wedding photographer, 6 years ago, and now I get to photograph them with their children Yay! So much fun for me. Tori asked if I would come to their Orinda home to photograph Chris playing with his kids. She loves how interactive with them and wanted these precious moments to be documented. Oh boy, little Audrey put him to task! She invited him to a tea party, got to put make-up on him and even dress him up. James got to be a big boy and shave with Dad. He couldn’t have had more fun with the shaving cream and seeing in them in the mirror together. These portraits gave the parents great happiness, but can you imagine how valuable they will be in 30 years? These moments are fleeting and magical, and it’s an honor to capture them through candid photography for my wonderful clients.
