As an Oakland photographer, I love exploring my city’s unique environments. This year, I’ve talked several families into choosing the warehouse districts as the setting for their family portraits. We start with a chat about a cool location and then look at wardrobe and colors that will create a modern set of images. Deidre is a dear friend, and I have been lucky to photograph her family for several years. I love seeing how the kids change and try to convey their personalities. I still force parents to attack the brood with love which is always hilarious. Not funny now, but hysterical later in life! Hahahahha. Thank You, Deidre, and family for trusting me with your family’s memories!
