These Peninsula family portraits were taken at the home of my clients in Menlo Park. The home is such an ideal place to make beautiful portraits of a newborn, as it is the most comfortable for everyone. I loved new mom, Andrea’s, natural style, and how she appreciates the quiet moments with her young family. Their daughter was too cute with her newborn baby brother, being extra gentle and helpful to her parents. I of course wanted to get some solo portraits of her, too! She tried on her favorite dress and ran outside, barefoot, to kick-up some leaves. Ahhh…that’s childhood. This low-key documentary approach to family sessions are low-stress and produce timeless, warm imagery. I’m just so glad I had the opportunity to meet this wonderful family!
Sophia and David wanted their San Francisco family portraits to be candid and informal. We loved the idea of playing around Fisherman’s Wharf. Their darling daughter was thrilled with the sights and sounds of the Bay. From colorful backdrops to the carousel at Pier 39, we made new memories for the family and now have photographs they can always look at to remember this wonderful time in their lives.
These East Bay family portraits celebrate the beautiful bond between generations of women to celebrate Mother’s Day. This beautiful family consists of 3 generations. I’m so glad they decided to stop to make these portraits happen. I asked the matriarch of the family to discuss her experience: “I am so thankful that I came from a line of very strong, hardworking and family oriented women. My mom and grandmother taught us the importance of family love and togetherness. I have been blessed with two beautiful daughters and 2 lovely granddaughters with whom I get to share many fun activities. I am so glad that we took the time for a photo shoot with Christina to capture those memorable moments. Near the end of the photo shoot, I became deeply moved as I reflected upon the three generations we represent. My heart was so overwhelmed by the love and closeness we share as a family.This was another fun and wonderful memory I can add to my treasure trove of precious moments spent with my girls.”
