I collaborated with gorgeous Oakland mother, Christiane, on Mother’s Day portraits to document some playful moments at home with her beautiful twin girls, Sophia and Chimene. A mother’s work is never done and it’s so meaningful to stop and make images of this time in the family’s life. From storytime to pillow fights and bubble baths, an intimate portrait of a mother’s busy day will one day be a cherished set of portraits the family will enjoy for years to come. I took time also to make portraits of each girl alone and together, so mom would have a full and complete gallery of portraits. Celebrate a mother in your life with a documentary portrait session with me, Christina Hernandez, of Nightingale Photography. firstname.lastname@example.org
Hi, I'm Christina Hernandez, owner of Nightingale Photography. Welcome to my new blog, celebrating candid family portraiture.
A family portrait session is an incredible gift you can give your family. The session itself is a memorable event, whether it be at your home, a favorite park or the beach. My family sessions are relaxed and fun, with the emphasis on genuine and authentic. Capturing the candid exuberance of childhood and family is my passion. The heirloom portraits that will hang in your home will bring you and your family joy each day and remind you of what's truly important in life. In addition, these photographs will be cherished by your children and family members for decades to come. We can't stop the hands of time, but beautiful photography gets pretty close.
I am a Bay Area native and live in the Oakland hills with my husband of 20 years, Richard, our spunky teenager, Sophia, and of course, our dogs, Roomba and Vincent. Having worked for 15 years as a staff photojournalist at the San Francisco Examiner and Chronicle, I am lucky to be able to anticipate unique moments and capture them for my clients. I believe photography is best experienced on the walls of your home and in heirloom albums, always accessible to view. Looking for my wedding and engagement photography? You can still find it here: nightingalephotosblog.com and nightingalephotos.com. I so look forward to telling your family's story! ~Christina
