Images of the whole family. These are the images most families do not have. And they are truly treasured in later years. The T. Family wanted to celebrate the arrival of their new baby girl at the 6-month stage with images of her and her big sister, with mom and dad, and with the whole family. All together. Thank you for such a warm welcome.

California is truly spectacular and makes such a wonderful backdrop for family images. And we are able to schedule shoots outdoors year round. Pretty amazing. For this family session in November we met up at Rodeo Beach in Sausalito. A beautiful “remote” location just minutes from the Golden Gate Bridge. So much fun!

He’s brand new! And an absolute delight to photograph. Thank you N. Family for such a relaxed morning together.

Seven years old. Waiting for new front teeth. It’s a milestone. It’s also a chance to show how much love he has for his mom. And she for him.

I love unbridled enthusiasm. Don’t you? These girls had great ideas for our photo shoot. On this particular day we moved around Marin trying to outrun the fog. And the whole family just rolled with it. Such a pleasure! We started in Tiburon and finished up at the Marin Art & Garden Center. Thank you S. Family and welcome to Marin!

This was the first ever family portrait session for this family who were the successful bid on an auction item I donated to the Ross Valley Nursery School in Kentfield. I think they did a fantastic job, no? The children, so loving and sweet with each other, were an absolute pleasure to photograph. The setting at a yacht club in Tiburon was stunning and especially meaningful as the family is starting to all sail together. Thank you C. Family!

I love learning the reason behind the booking of a photography session. More often than not it involves celebrating a family milestone. The arrival of a new baby. Capturing a new toddler stage (sitting, crawling, walking). Moving into a new home and thus the need to fill the walls with beautiful, welcoming family portraits. Or, as in the case of this session, the entire family celebrating a high school graduation. As the first child goes off to college, the session marked the bittersweetness of both an ending and a beginning in the family’s daily life. I love this final image. And that they will always have it.
